“Mark Installed the Facebook for Android Application”

It appears that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has taken to Android for his mobile needs.  After publicly dissing the iPhone 3GS with a wall posting, Mark threatened to switch to Android due to battery issues.  Looking at another recent wall posting, we can see that he allegedly installed the official Facebook for Android application, leading us to believe that he did in fact make the jump.  For all we know, however, Mark buys one of every phone with his kind of money.

It will be interesting to see if the application evolves as a result of his usage.  Don’t forget that lead Google/Android developer Erick Tseng recently bolted for Facebook which could also indicate a better, more robust app is on the way.

    Shame it can't be removed without having to root.

    Any bets on which Android phone Mark went for?
    I'm guessing the Droid x.

    I'm placing a bet that over the next couple of years Facebook is going to be a major way for users to discover Android applications.

    I've published an app on Android Market for sharing of application info to your friends on Facebook: http://www.zappmarket.com/catalog/27. I found that the Facebook version of the AppFriend app does much better in use and downloads than the twitter one. To me, this provides some early indication that friend-to-friend type social networks like Facebook are much more effective than social networks like twitter as a means of discovering Android applications.

    Strange, most modern Android phones comes with Facebook pre-installed. It must be a non-cellular device. Could it be a soon-to-be-released Android tablet that he's testing out in the Facebook labs?

    Now he'll discover how crappy the Android version is compared to the BB or IPhone version.

    I hope that he sees how bad that app is and fixes it. If I want facebook on my Droid I use the browser in computer or desktop mode.
