From the MySpace phone to the Facebook phone

0. phoneArena 03 Apr 2013, 11:58 posted on

Seven years ago, the tech landscape was incredibly different from what you see today. MySpace was the biggest thing on the web with 55 million users, and Facebook was just two years old, and hadn't even opened up membership to the general public yet. At this time in 2006, you still needed a university e-mail address or an invite to sign up for Facebook. Now, MySpace has been relaunched as a music social network, and Facebook has over 1 billion users. All of that, and we haven't even mentioned the sea change seen in the mobile world...

Facebook phone is a bad idea. It's mobile features from photo sync to contacts sync are quite annoying.

I wouldn't exactly call it useless...but that depends on your opinion.
I rather find it useful...i found my long lost friends after the high school days through Facebook.
But yes, i find the Facebook phone to be rather useless when i can see everything through normal web log in.

"...for the professional Facebook creepers..." is it a well paid job?

Please tell me your phone/tablet changed your spelling to show "face" because the "c" and "k" are nowhere near each other lol

A Facebook phone its the most unnecesary thing in this time, its a phone with the Facebook brand, and thats all...

What Facebook needs to do is work on their crappy app, and make it even better because their bugs are annoying and doesn't work at times, thats what Facebook REALLY NEED TO TAKE CARE OF and get rid of this stupid ideas...

Wow, this article makes me feel old. Unlike many others on this site, I've used MySpace when it was very popular and now, I use both Facebook and Twitter while they're popular. Man how time is flying.

Please let history repeat itself here... Please let a Facebook phone signal the decline of that wretched blight on the face of humanity.
