  • 14. Results / conclusions
    Creating a Mobile Site Shortcut was essential to provide a mass market downloadable “app” for consumers all over the world not using smartphones
    Many feature phone users didn’t differentiate between an actual “app” or the MSS and were simply happy to have faster, easier access to the Facebook mobile service
    Marketing was important to position the MSS as the ideal solution most mass market users. By positioning the MSS as an app and marketing it, consumers were made aware of it’s existence and downloaded it
    APP IT! was critical in leveraging Facebook’s own mobile site traffic. By making the link to their hosted page on GetJar visible across their mobile site, Facebook encouraged consumers to download Facebook to their phone in large numbers which made access to the site easier and increased repeat usage
    Adoption of MSS and marketing: From 80k downloads per month in May 2008 to 250k by March 2009
    Launch of APP IT!: From 350k downloads per month in July 09 to 6.7M per month by Feb 2010
