Recently, Michael Arrington at Techcrunch reported that Facebook was “secretly building a phone”. Facebook very quickly denied anything of the sort, and emphasized their commitment to supporting mobile implementations of their platform. Of course, there are still people that have latched onto this nonsense and still believe it to be happening, despite any real evidence.
This strip was inspired by a joke someone made on the “This Week in Social Media” podcast about what a MySpace phone might be. And here is the result.
On a personal note, I can’t for a minute believe Facebook would get into the phone wars. Just seems like a pointless diversion, given the other decent ways to get Facebook on mobile devices. That said, nothing Zuck does surprises me anymore.
