Another Monday liveblog from Mobile World Congress is taking place and this time around, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to give a keynote address. Zuckerberg is always an interesting one to catch as he's generally a fairly compelling speaker, so this should be good and if nothing else, at least interesting.
We don't really expect too much, if any, Facebook news but instead look for broader topics that have to do with the Internet, social connectivity and the world in general.
We're liveblogging this one starting at 6 p.m. CET — that's noon in New York and 9 a.m. on the West Coast. Join us!Continue Reading →
The news of Facebook acquiring WhatsApp for an enormous pile of money is front and center in the mobile communication industry today, and for good reason. Having watched WhatsApp grow from nothing into a cross platform winner over the last 5 years, quickly overtaking BBM and doing a darn good job of executing on a growth plan, I'm impressed with what they've done while I've been incredibly frustrated at how long it took BlackBerry to make the cross-platform decision. And while I was shocked to see the deal's valuation, I've taken some time to think about it rationally, and it might not be that insane.Continue Reading →

In the event that you could care less about Facebook, or just haven’t been following the news, yesterday was a significant day for the social media giant run by Mark Zuckerberg. They rolled out a new Android app, for lack of a better word, that takes over the home screen of Android and deeply integrates with the OS.
The "app" is called Facebook Home. There is no Facebook phone. There’s a very creatively designed Facebook experience that gets layered on top of Android, and can run on most Android phones. Facebook hasn’t forked Android. They’ve obviously gotten Google’s approval here, otherwise they’d not be able to use the Google Play store, or any of the Google apps. In other words, without Google’s blessing, they’d be in the same position as Amazon, who doesn’t ever speak of Android even though we all know they’re using it.Continue Reading →
