This is according to a non-scientific survey we conducted on our Facebook fan page in December, 2011 where we asked mobile users of different platforms to list 3 of their most frequently used apps. While, the competition was respectable between Social networking/IM apps and mobile browser apps on other platforms, users of Blackberry phones were a lot more pro social with social/IM apps having 79.9% popularity, leaving browsers with just 10.8%.
