Facebook recently updated its Android application and just a little bit later the brand new iPhone and iPad client were published. Despite the fact that the iOS flavor is, at the moment, somewhat better than its Android counterpart, Facebook employees are ditching iPhones and using Android devices.
They are forced to do so, at least that’s what a report is claiming. According to “ex-Facebookers and others familiar with Facebook’s plans”, management is making all employees use Android devices in order to emphasize and make them see just how bad the Android application is. By having people use the application, Facebook management hopes that they will see just how awful it is once they meet the user experience first-hand (and hopefully come up with a solution probably in the shape of a revamped or fully rebuilt client).
