Facebook is putting up a good fight.

 

Since the launch of facebook most people like myself were excited. Here we were a social website which came along and established its dominance as a social network that catered to a lot of our online needs to connect.

 

Fast forward a couple years, if you’re anything like me Facebook has now become dull and simply un-entertaining. With over a billion users and users like myself Facebook must now find ways to stay on top and constantly find ways to keep the audience interested.

 

This brings us to their newest thing “Facebook Home” -a new homescreen and app launcher for Android — and the release of the first-ever Facebook phone manufactured by HTC. Yes Facebook now wants to have a larger presence in the mobile department. This seems a bit late to me but can prove to be beneficial by allowing facebook to improve its mobile ad targeting. It might not do as well as they hope but then again it can prove to be a great platform for ads targeting mobile users. Only time can tell I suppose, in the meantime we can look forward to the impact this will bring to social media.
