Facebook wants its employees to switch to Android
In the barracks of the most impressive social network of web today, are beginning to see a number of billboards referring to Google’s mobile operating system, which is certainly something rather curious, is that as seen , Facebook has begun to encourage their employees to change their iPhone for an Android phone.
The reasons for this are a bit obvious, once you know the status of the various mobile platforms and the importance of this class of devices for social networking. Facebook does not have any secret agreement with Google, their reasons for urging employees using Android are based on the market’s future, and only that. Something that is quite understandable.
Any Android device user can attest that the official facebook application for this platform is very bad, leaves much to be desired, it is slow, unstable and even is preferable to use the mobile web before this app. That’s why Mark Zuckerberg and his team want their employees to start using Android devices, so have thousands of users in their barracks that would prove the official implementation of the social network, and this would accelerate the pace of development. A very good strategy.
It is very interesting that a couple of years ago, Facebook began to facilitate the acquisition of iPhones to their employees, but now want to move to Android.
Undoubtedly, the development of the Facebook application for Android has moved into perhaps the most important position in the priorities of managers and developers of this network. Why? They might ask. Because according to the analysis of firms IDC as important as ensuring that the sales growth of Android devices will grow at a very rapid pace, outpacing iPhone sales. Are these future users (potential, so far) that have caught the attention of the social network, and therefore have realized it as your application must improve.Tags: Android, facebook, iPhone
