What you need to know
- On the eve of Facebook's F8 developer conference, AC readers told us which Facebook apps they could not live without.
- The runaway top choice for our readers was WhatsApp.
- Instagram was in second place, but not even the regular Facebook app was the last choice.
The virtual Facebook F8 developer conference came and went earlier this week with little fanfare, it seems, but it marked an appropriate time to poll our readers on which Facebook app or service they felt they couldn't live without. The consensus top choice as the most popular Facebook app — WhatsApp — probably won't surprise anybody, nor will the second-most-popular selection, Instagram.
The top two choices came in with around 44% and 25% of the votes, respectively. The third choice for most readers was Facebook Messenger with nearly 13%, followed by "Other" with 11%, and the regular Facebook app with less than 5%. Given how popular VR is as a topic on Android Central in general, and how beloved Oculus content is in particular, it was a bit of a shock to see Oculus in the last place of our reader poll with fewer than 4% of the vote.
