Mark Zuckerberg Says Facebook's Biggest Mistake Was Focusing on HTML5
Mark Zuckerberg reportedly said that Facebook's biggest mistake was going with HTML5 for its iOS and mobile apps at TechCrunch Disrupt today.
Today, Mark Zuckerberg revealed that Facebook's mobile strategy relied too much on HTML5, rather than native applications. Not only was this a big mistake with mobile, but Zuckerberg says that its biggest mistake period was the focus on HTML5. This is the first time that the Facebook CEO has openly admitted this, but things are looking good for the new iOS native app. According to Zuckerberg, people are consuming twice as many feed stories since the update to the new iOS app, which is great.
Two weeks ago Facebook finally released a native iOS application that vastly improved speeds to address complaints over the HTML5 version of the app.
Today Zuckerberg said more new product is coming, "The first half year has been a little bit slow on product, but for the next six months I expect a lot of really cool stuff."
