Recycling an old mobile could let you keep up to date with the news.

The increasing popularity of Facebook may encourage consumers to recycle an old mobile phone.

According to data, received by Mashable from comScore, Facebook now holds a 41 per cent majority of social media traffic.

It was also revealed that Facebook and YouTube showed major traffic growth through last year and the beginning of this year.

People who would like to keep in touch with friends and family while on the move may wish to upgrade to a new phone with internet access.

Tim Gibbon, co-founder and editor of the Social Media Portal, said: "As Facebook grows and meets its critical mass it certainly does have potential to challenge other social networks whether they are popular, or niche."

He added that 41 per cent is a great deal of social network traffic to hold, but as has previously been seen what is popular can change quickly.

It has recently been widely reported in the media that AOL may look to offload the social networking site Bebo.
