Facebook pulled the wraps off its new mobile platform Wednesday at a special event held at its headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif. The offerings in the platform were designed to appeal to consumers, businesses and developers and to expand the reach of the social network's geolocation technology, Places. For many of the social network's fans and followers, though, the event was a bust because the company did not announce a Facebook-branded mobile phone. "There's been this rumor floating around recently that Facebook is going to build a phone ... Ah, no," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said.
Fantastic news for Facebook!
