    Facebook Pushing Android over iPhones for Employees

    If you have ever used the Facebook application for Android, you might understand exactly why they are doing this. In an attempt to improve employee awareness and also have a larger in-house testing group, Facebook has begun advising their employees to switch their handsets to something Android. Last week, posters like the one above started showing up all around Facebook HQ in California. A few years back, employees were recommended to get iPhones because the majority of Facebook mobile users used an iPhone but, due to the rapid growth of Android, employees are now being advised Android devices.

    You might be wondering why it matters what device their employees used, well according to Facebook’s spokesman, their employees have a special app installed on their device. This application allows them to shake their phone and whatever they are doing will be recording for bug reporting or simple change/improvement recommendations. So if more employees used Android devices, they will have a much better in-house test group.

    There you have it, maybe in the next few months we will see a drastic improvement in the Android Facebook app.

    Something about the reasoning is a little unnerving. Seems likely, as not, to be a good way to check up on the activities of the employees.
