Mark Zuckerberg Says Facebook Is Not Making A Phone

Posted Jul 29, 2012

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the company is not making a phone despite several reports about it.  Zuckerberg reported the news on a conference call with financial analysts and reporters earlier this week.  He said it ?wouldn?t really make much sense for us to do.?

Zuckerberg said that Facebook does want to focus on increasing the ?the depth of the experience in addition to just growing users.?  Facebook wants to make sure that they are integrating themselves into other phones rather than making their own device.

?You?ll see us do things like support Apple in the iOS integration that they wanted to do,? said Zuckerberg. ?There are lots of things that you can build in other operating systems as well that aren?t really building out a whole phone, which I think really wouldn?t make much sense for us to do.?
