Are there some info and statistics about the social networks used by iOS / Androis users?

If my app will be present in App Store and Google Play, I'd like to distinguish the login methods, the social buttons, etc. depending on it.

Example: iOS users uses more Facebook: I'll show Facebook button first.
Android users uses more Twitter: I'll ask them to login with Twitter.

    Unless space is a problem why not offer both - I haven't seen any studies about social network usage on particular mobile platforms but I'd bet that the difference is negligible as the networks deliberately try to appeal to all users. By the way - I'd also offer the more classical login (email/password) for those users who don't have or don't like to use social logins. May 12, 2016 at 15:23
  • yes, sure! it0's a good idea to offer both. but for example: if I'm gonna show some alert like "follow me on twitter" or "like my page on facebook", I'd like to show them in some particular order depending on the stats (that I think don't exist :D )

  • In that case you might be better off looking for general usage stats comparing each network rather than each platform - most popular login form / network goes first May 12, 2016 at 15:36

As of 2016 the number of US users of the Facebook app has reached 47 million a month on iOS and 55 million on Android. Facebook is the most popular app on iOS and it is only number 3 on Android.

If the user signed in with social network X, show him alert "follow me on X". It's all about personalization.
