Facebook data shows evidence of slowing Windows Phone growth

Here at WMPoweruser.com we keep a close eye on various indicators of sales and growth of Windows Phone.

One of them is the growth in usage numbers of the official Windows Phone Facebook app, which just hit 3 million monthly active users.

The numbers indicate that each 100K tick has been taking longer and longer:

 Official FB appDays between  100K increase
09/07/20122400000 
12/07/201225000003
17/07/201226000005
22/07/201227000005
29/07/201228000007
05/08/201229000007
13/08/201230000008

The slow down may just be the natural progression due to the lack of new devices, or may be due to the lack of a WP8 upgrade finally permeating sales channels. It may even be due to lack of publicity recently, and may accelerate after Nokia announces new Windows Phones in September, simply due to increased buzz around the OS.

Whatever the reason however, our readers can be sure we will be reporting on it in the coming weeks and months.
