Facebook tops the list of most often used social media. Here's the list of top 10 social media sites on the Internet today.

Analysis by AudienceProject has revealed the social media apps which are used most often. Top of the list is Facebook, with 53 percent of the 1,757 U.S. respondents saying that they access the mobile app several times a day -- pretty far ahead of its competitors.

In second place is Facebook-owned messaging service WhatsApp with 44 percent. The rivalry between Snapchat and Instagram is too close to call in this regard, with Snap's app claiming a slight edge.

Facebook's Impressive Mobile Line-Up

When Facebook filed for its initial public offering in early 2012, the company named the ongoing transition to mobile as one of the biggest risks to its future success. If the transition to mobile was indeed the biggest challenge in Mark Zuckerberg's young career as CEO of a billion-dollar company, he managed it admirably well.

Not only does Facebook generate most of its revenue on mobile devices now, the company also owns some of the most popular apps in the world. Just this week, Messaging VP David Marcus announced that Messenger now has 1.2 billion monthly active users, making Facebook's messaging sidekick the third of the company's platforms to reach that threshold. Facebook itself currently has 1.7 billion mobile users per months, its $19 billion acquisition WhatsApp reached 1.2 billion users in December 2016. And finally there's Instagram, which has more than 600 million users and is immensely popular with Millennials.

With a mobile line-up like this, Facebook appears to be in a position that all but guarantees sustained success in the mobile landscape.
