"By making Parse a part of Facebook Platform, we want to enable developers to rapidly build apps that span mobile platforms and devices," Douglas Purdy, Facebook's director of product management, said at the time.

Parse is looking to expand too -- in September the company is hosting its first-ever conference for developers, in San Francisco.

On mobile, Facebook's monthly active users increased by 54 percent to 751 million, the company reported in May during its first-quarter earnings call.
