About 157 million of Facebook's 1.06 billion monthly active users access the site only on mobile devices, Facebook reported on its Q4 2012 earnings call today.

Unsurprisingly, Facebook now also collects 23 percent of its ad revenue from serving mobile ads. Total revenue was $1.59 billion, of which total ad revenue was $1.33 billion — implying that mobile revenue in Q4 was ~$300 million in the quarter.
