If you like something like us, then Facebook became part of your life every day. We are continuing with my friends, family, share the experience interesting (or boring) of everyday life, and perhaps most importantly for us, we share a LOT of photos.
We love building products, such as our friends on Facebook. We think that mobile is an essential part of people’s lives today, as they simultaneously create and consume content and share content with their social connections. By working directly with Facebook, and join their team, we will have more opportunities to develop special products for consumer use – that’s what we always wanted to do.
Thank you to all our supporters, our developer community is amazing, our employees, and also to my friends and family who have seen us through the long days and nights even longer. The following steps will be exciting for us all.
