Just after passing 250 million monthly active mobile users, Facebook overhauled its mobile web presence today. The company now has a single mobile website that is simultaneously accessible to feature and smartphones. This is some early experimentation with technology that may one day be rolled out to third-party developers.
“As developers, we see a lot of fragmentation,” said Erick Tseng, the company’s head of mobile products. “A lot of people don’t know that we have to maintain multiple code bases to maintain all of our mobile apps and websites. It was a giant pain.”
