Our Biggest Gaffe Was Relying on HTML 5, Says Zuckerberg

Picture Holder1

In his first public interview after going public, Facebook's chief executive Mark Zuckerberg accepted the fact that the firm’s mobile app strategy of aiming at HTML5 as a least common denominator platform rather than iOS was a blunder that spoiled two years of its hard work by development. Facebook was one of the first big companies to make the move to HTML 5, not just for its mobile web, but also its iOS and Android apps.

"The biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5 as opposed to native. It just wasn’t ready," said Zuckerberg at TechCrunch Disrupt. Facebook started implementing HTML 5 two years ago and was implementing it in some mobile widgetry called Face Web. It lost at least a year before it realized that it wasn’t going to work and needed to go native to support the shift to mobile devices.

Zuckerberg also put an end to intense speculation that Facebook was planning to release a phone as early as next year. Building a Facebook phone would not attract a considerable enough number of users to make the venture worthwhile, said Zuckerberg.
