This week at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Facebook wasted no time in explaining how to build up a strong audience for cross-platform gaming.

During a panel at the event earlier this week, engineering manager Aaron Brady broke down some interesting statistics for the site, indicated in a blog post. An average of 375 million people play Facebook-oriented games on a monthly basis, through both desktop and mobile devices. For good measure, cross-platform play is huge, having grown 2.5 times the level of mobile-only players, and 1.5 times over routine desktop players.

The stats also indicate that cross-platform play across both devices also grew quite a bit between September and November 2013, with games like Candy Crush Saga leading the charge.

Needless to say, Facebook’s gaming portal isn’t going to slow down anytime soon, if at all.
