Facebook Pushes HTML5 Among Game Developers -- A Key Part of Mobile Strategy

Facebook’s Cory Ondrejka, who recently joined the company last fall as part of the Walletin acquisition, appears to be stepping up as the platform’s advocate of HTML5 — a central piece of the company’s mobile strategy going forward. Facebook wants developers to choose HTML5 over building native iOS or Android apps, so the company can sidestep relatively closed intermediaries like Apple when it wants to roll out new platform functionality or bring products like Credits to mobile games.
