Bridging the Desktop and Mobile Web Divide Through the Social Graph

Plenary
Location: Ballroom III - VI Level: Novice
Average rating: ***..
(3.25, 8 ratings)

Until recently there was a delta between the Web experience and content
available to users based how they accessed the Web, from their desktop
or a mobile device. However, as the Web becomes increasing social and
enables people to easily share and connect with friends and family,
individuals want to keep these connections going even when they are away
from their PC or laptop. In combination with the explosion of innovative
mobile devices and operating systems, the social graph provides a
platform that meets this need and delivers new ways for individuals to
stay connected to their network.

This session will cover Facebook’s approach to the mobile market
including:

  • An overview of Facebook’s diverse mobile offerings
  • How the company has become one of the most desired mobile apps and
    grown its users base 5x over 12 months
  • How carriers and device makers can benefit from this growth and offer
    innovative mobile social experiences through Facebook

This guy was crazily excited, but showed real passion for what he does. At the end, though, he didn’t really tell us anything that we didn’t already know.
