Facebook Hires Ex Apple Maps Chief Richard WilliamsonThe world of technology might be a vast one, but some names just tend to go around the market from time to time, simply because their expertise in a particular situation is always valuable. You know what they say – one man’s meat is another man’s poison, and one of those folks who were affected in the fallout due to Apple’s iOS 6 Maps snafu was project head Richard Williamson, who was speculated to have been dropped from Cupertino at the end of last year. While these are just speculations with no actual details (at least until now), Williamson might soon be back on a payroll as Bloomberg’s sources point out that Williamson has already joined Facebook’s mobile software division over the past fortnight.

Needless to say, it remains to be seen just what Williamson will churn out for Facebook, although one would be wise not to question the pedigree that Williamson brings with him where interface development is concerned, considering how he helmed that segment for key iOS apps as well as played quite a sterling role in assisting Safari to get off the ground.
