Facebook released an update to it’s iOS SDK last week in an attempt to make it easier for mobile developers to integrate with Facebook. Samuel Junghenn founder of Think Big Online a Digital Marketing Agency says this is the biggest update released since the launch in 2009 and is a strong signal of intentions by Facebook.
In Mark Zuckerberg’s last interview he revealed that Facebook made a mistake in investing heavily into HTML5. Instead he stated that Facebook should have focused more on creating native applications for mobile devices.
The release of the iOS SDK update by Facebook was announced by Eddie O’Neal on Facebook’s developer blog where he said: “This integration opens up new opportunities for mobile app developers, as you can easily build the foundation for a social app, Facebook Login and sharing functionality into your product.”
“This latest SDK release by Facebook makes it easier for mobile developers to integrate Facebook into their applications. This is a smart move by Facebook as it will tie them even further into mobile development and prolong the use of Facebook.” Said Mr Junghenn.
Mobile use of the internet and Facebook itself has grown significantly in the last few years and Facebook has already shown their intentions to be more mobile by acquiring Instagram.
It’s expected that over the coming months Facebook will also release another update to it’s iOS native app adding more functionality, something which users have been waiting for.
“It’s interesting to watch how fast Facebook are moving, there are news stories and updates occurring on a daily basis. No one could say that Mark Zuckerberg isn’t trying to correct the share price dip.” Said Mr Junghenn.
