Facebook starts Android beta program

0. phoneArena 27 Jun 2013, 17:33 posted on

If you like to be on the bleeding edge of technology, Facebook wants your help. The company seems to be intent on getting as much user feedback as possible these days, maybe to avoid another bomb like Facebook Home (although we kind of liked Home, it certainly didn't go over well with users.) With that in mind, Facebook has started a beta program for its Android app...

How about they make a tablet optimized app for android tablets. At this point it is just ridiculous

Zuck, that dead horse you're trying to beat is laid out on a ship that's already sailed.

Ah, who knows... maybe Facebook is taking the right approach this time.

I'm already on the bleeding edge. I'm on Google+. It looks awesome in both portrait and landscape orientation. FB needs to copy G+.

The problem is that everybody uses FB, but at the same time nobody wants FB to be the main part of their smartphone or user interface.

True... but I'm definitely using FAcebook less and less every week - but that could just be me getting older. With companies looking through facebooks and other social networking sites nowadays, its hard for somone to use them for what they've turned into... a place to express your thoughts. Also with more and more advertizing, they start to get cluttered with stuff that no one wants to see. If Facebook Home came otu 4-5 years ago, I bet it would have had a different story.
