Facebook is being reported to launch its own smartphone by next year. The newly public social networking giant looks to boost its revenue in the mobile Internet market by releasing a smart phone of its own.
How Facebook is going to launch smart phone
Facebook has hired more than half a dozen software and hardware engineers who have the experience of working on Apple’s bestselling iPhone, and one engineer who has iPad experience, reported New York Times, citing employees and other unnamed sources. The company has also expanded a group working on a partnership with Taiwan’s HTC to create a smartphone code-named “Buffy” – a project first unveiled last year by technology blog All Things Digital.
What Facebook has to say on launch smartphone
The social networking giant refused to comment on this. Facebook neither confirmed nor denied the report. “Our mobile strategy is simple: We think every mobile device is better if it is deeply social,” it said in a statement e-mailed to AFP.

Software giant Microsoft has quietly launched out So.cl (pronounced ‘social’) from its beta version. Socl is a social ‘network’ that was being tested by a handful of university students since late 2011.
About So.cl network
According to Microsoft, So.cl is an experimental research project developed by the company’s FUSE Labs focused on exploring the possibilities of social search for the purpose of learning. The networking platform is somewhat similar to Pinterest where users can create boards. And, just like the early days of Facebook, right now the network is only for college students.
How So.cl network functions?
In a report from December 2011, Microsoft claimed that the site is not meant to compete with Facebook or other search engines, but to allow students to share materials for academic purposes. If you wish to be a part of this social networking platform, click here.
Will there be any major changes?
The proposed changes, which the company put out for public comment this weekend, do not indicate any major shifts in its policy. A major part of the document clarifies how Facebook is using the data of its users. The company has also updated the policy to reflect newer features, such as cover photos.
The proposed changes are not final. A document highlighting the proposed changes can be viewed on the official website in PDF form, along with an explanation of the changes. Facebook is asking for user feedback and will host a web question-and-answer session about the changes on May 14 at 9 a.m. Pacific time.
According to privacy analysts, once Facebook goes public, it will be under pressure to generate more revenue and will probably resort to selling personal information for targeted advertising to accomplish that goal.
