Facebook sends nearly 60 million visitors to 3rd-party apps each month

Today, James Pierce over at Facebook’s development blog posted some staggering statistics about how much traffic the social network sends to 3rd-party apps. According to the post, Facebook is responsible for nearly 60 million monthly visits to 3rd-party apps and games. “BranchOut, for example, a social-professional networking web app, sees more than 350 thousand visitors from Facebook mobile every day. This traffic has already grown by a factor of twenty since the start of the year.” The massive sum speaks to Facebook’s ability to become much more than just a place to check out your friend’s profile.
