Facebook Home: A Curse and a Blessing
I have two questions:
Mark, where is the support for Nexus Devices? In fact where is support for Tablets in general? I have a Nexus 7 and the first thing I thought of was "Wow this is gonna look great on my Nexus." I come to find out that no tablets are supported at launch. Huge disappointment.
This is fantastically unfortunate for Google. If Facebook blows out support across the Android platform and it catches on it's possible Facebook could reshape what it means to be an android phone. In addition, Facebook could simply flip the switch from Web Search to Graph Search. Now imagine Facebook partnering with Microsoft to put Bing behind Graph Search and sucking up every possible ad stream for Google.
Frankly, I'm interested to see what Google's response is over the next few months, a loud bang or a great big deafening silence.
