Nick Bilton has published a good read about how Facebook's actions--or in actions, have gone against some of the things Mark Zuckerberg's famous "Hacker Way" letter said when Facebook filed for it's IPO. Bilton gives a great gist what it entails so I'm not going to rehash. I am rather going to focus on Facebook's pathetic iPhone app as going against all things in the hacker way.
The article also echoed some thoughts I've had, and been having about Facebook recently.
One of the hacker ways Mark talked about was, "move fast and break things".
Well, they've surely been breaking things but not as a result of moving fast. (And moving fast here means iterating and shipping new releases).
First and foremost Facebook sucks at mobile. Period. There's no sugarcoating that. It's hard to think that with all the talk about them focusing on mobile, the desktop Facebook experience still trumps and annihilates that of the mobile app experience--Five years into the iPhone's existence. Sad.
