The company earned in 2014 a net profit of $2.9 billion, nearly double the figure of 2013, while Facebook's income last year amounted to $12.4 billion, representing an increase of 58.4 percent compared to the previous year.

The results presented Wednesday showed that the business branch of Facebook grew more last year and confirmed the success of the company to make the network more mobile-based.

In December 2014, the number of Facebook subscribers reached 890 million which meant a growth of 18 percent compared to a year earlier.

Of the total number of active daily users, 745 million (84 percent) logged in to the network through mobile devices, which accounted for a 34 percent increase compared to the previous year.
