Facebook to improve mobile phone user experienceFacebook has announced that they will be improving the web experience for users on mobile phones. Currently, users have to access different sites based on the phones they are using – m.faceook.com (if they have a lower end phone) or touch.facebook.com (if they have a touchscreen device). And because of the different sites, each time Facebook comes up with a new feature for the desktop version, they have to code it again for the 2 mobile sites as well as the official Facebook apps on smartphones, which led to missing features in the mobile versions. They have come up with a solution to overhaul m.facebook.com, and now all phones will access Facebook through that site (if they don’t use the app). Having only one site to access will ensure that Facebook users get a standardized user experience and it will save the Facebook development team the effort of having to code for 2 different sites. Depending on their phones, visiting m.facebook.com will give users a different interface/experience. How many of you prefer using the mobile site instead of the dedicated Facebook app on your phones?
