Love for Facebook is kind of skyrocketing these days. As we came across Opera’s latest State of the Mobile Web report, which gets published every month and brought us interesting results. According to the report, Facebook is now the most popular social network on the mobile web surpassing Russian VKontakte for the first time in history. Unique users of Facebook grew more than 600% during 2009, helping the site overtake VKontakte, formerly the most popular social network among Opera Mini users. On the other hand, Twitter saw its usage rise more than any other social network, rolling more than 2800% in just one year.
According to Opera blog -
- Facebook is the top social-networking site, worldwide. Given the popularity of Opera in Russian-speaking countries, VKontakte used to be in the top position (based on unique users), but it was overtaken by Facebook in 2009.
- Twitter was the other big winner in terms of growth in 2009, with the number of unique unique users jumping more than 2800%.

Apart from social network on mobile web the report also has reveled data on Southeast Asia trends and global trends. But the most surprising things here to know is VKontakte was the number one social network, how on earth that could happen?
