In a push to boost revenue, Facebook is hoping to expand its access to other mobile platforms according to a Bloomberg interview with Adam Mosseri, the Director of Product at Menlo Park, California-based Facebook.
“We’ve shown them what we’ve built and we’re just in an ongoing conversation,” Mosseri told Bloomberg in reference to conversations with Apple and Microsoft. Jen Martin, a spokeswoman for Cupertino, California-based Apple, declined to comment.
Asked about an iOS equivalent at the Facebook Home launch, Zuckerberg said the smooth openness of Android meant Google intervention wasn’t required, but Apple’s mobile platform would require a direct partnership.
“We have a great relationship with Apple. Anything that happens with Apple is going to happen with partnership. Google’s Android is open so we don’t have to work with them,” Zuckerberg said during the event.
Facebook’s new mobile app, which gives Android phones quick access to Facebook services and social network on mobile devices, is a collection of apps that users can download to their smartphones to boost access to Facebook content and messaging with friends.
