Maybe Facebook (FB) is onto something after all with its notion that people want their smartphones to be centered more around its social network. Flurry Analytics released a new report on Wednesday showing that iOS and Android users spend roughly half their time either playing mobile games, which accounted for 32% of all time spent on both platforms, or using Facebook’s mobile app, which accounted for 18% of all time spent.
