Social networking giant Facebook says things are changing at the company as Zuckberg and crew give mobile a renewed focus.

According to Dow Jones Newswires:

Facebook on Thursday said that it has shaken up its engineering teams to make targeting smartphones a top priority at the world’s leading social network.

“We have really just re-organized the company to build faster on mobile,” Facebook director of product management Peter Deng said. “In the past six months we transplanted mobile engineers to the other teams. Slowly, over time we are making everyone a mobile engineer.”

Facebook says that roughly 7,000 different models of mobile devices are used by the mobile masses to connect with Facebook today. As a natural result, this reality presents a series of critical challenges to the engineers at Facebook.

Facebook released a rebuilt application for iPhones a few weeks ago and saw its rating in Apple’s online App Store go from two to four stars.

“Internally, we are psyched,” says Facebook product manager Mick Johnson. “This is really just the start of the road for us; there are many things we want to do.”

    If there were 7000 different models of mobile devices used 2 years ago I wonder how many of them do we have now. With this variety of devices and in the world which is on the move, to my mind it’s a MUST for every company, which wants to be successful to focus on the mobile users.

    Using
    Facebook one can efficiently express their individuality. It’s very comfortable to have an access at every
    moment you need. Using it is as efficient as http://www.cashloansonlinefast.com/,

    This is just amazing how massive Facebook is. This is not just the largest social network, it is something beyond our understanding of network in general. Its progress over the past years is really difficult to discrub as it is tremendous and while I am posting this comment it keeps on growing. Mobile devices users cannot imagine themselves without Internet connection, so yeah, FB directors have really something to continue working on.

    People are using Facebook network a lot for sharing and having fun with friends, smart phone devices are one of the major sources for accessing Facebook accounts and this is leading the firm to make advancements in Facebook mobile.
