Facebook Unites Mobile Web Development Efforts | Liz Gannes | NetworkEffect | AllThingsD

Facebook focuses on mobile and HTML5

The company has said that in order to be maximally accessible it will favor mobile Web development over native app development. “We are internalizing our own strategies around HTML5 to prove out that this emphasis on the mobile Web can actually work,” [Erick Tseng, Facebook’s head of mobile] said.

“Yes, there is going to be a day when the majority of folks have something that looks more like an Android,” Tseng said, “but I don’t believe that’s going to happen in the next year, probably not the next two years.”

Tseng was previously lead product manager for Android before he joined Facebook last May.
