Facebook Reportedly Outlaws iPhones at Work
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sounds more like a sheriff in the wild west these days. According to new reports coming to light from inside of the company, Facebook is cracking down on employees who bring iPhones to work.
Despite what this reality suggests, Mark Zuckerberg doesn't hate the iPhone (as we all know, he idolizes late Apple chief Steve Jobs). But Zuck does, apparently, hate how the iPhone's influence is taking his team's focus off of Android.
Just last week, Facebook finally rolled out its long-awaited refreshed iOS app, which dramatically improved upon the atrociously slow, crash-happy iOS app it had kept on the market for far too long. Now, Zuckerberg says, it's time for Android to get Facebook's full attention.
Facebook is on a mission to improve its Android app, going so far as to order employees to leave their iPhones at home and use the rival platform to get more familiar with it. Business Insider reports Facebook is taking this approach, citing as sources ex-Facebook employees and people familiar with the goings-on inside the Menlo Park company.
As of this writing, it isn't clear when the Android Facebook app will be updated to the extent of last week's Facebook iOS app.

That would explain why the iPhone Facebook app sucks, they can't even test the software before they ship it.

I'd bring it to work anyway. Your job cannot tell you what phone brand to bring..BS.

Should anyone be surprised? I mean, you develop multi-platform apps, you might as well be familiar with the devices your writing code for. iOS and Android are two totally different operating systems, that function way differently from each other.

LOL at some of these comments. I'm sure their employer or Google/Samsung or any other company that makes phones for the AVOID OS....I mean ANDROID, would be providing the devices to these employees. Besides, with the exception of a few things, you can basically do the same thing on an iPhone w/ an ANDROID product. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW THINGS.
And I wouldn't really call it forced. Its their job to create and maintain their product. Makes sense to familiarize yourself w/ a device that you are creating an app for.....
