Ready for ‘Facebook,’ the Verb?


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg came forward to clarify rampant rumors that his company was working with a mobile handset manufacturer to make a Facebook-branded smartphone. The problem is, he didn’t address the question. In an interview this week with TechCrunch, Zuckerberg asserted that people can mean “very different things” when they use the phrase “build a phone.” Facebook is not looking to compete with smartphone manufacturers, he said, nor is it interested in developing its own handset operating system.
