Zuckerberg says majority of mobile Facebook users aren’t bothering with Facebook’s mobile app

Facebook (FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday said what many consumers have long been thinking: That it “won’t make much sense” for Facebook to build its own phone. During Thursday’s earnings report call, Zuckerberg was asked whether his company planned to get into the hardware business to expand its brand further into the mobile realm. After denying that his company planned to make its own phone, Zuckerberg explained that the company was for now content to work with the big-time smartphone players to make Facebook an integral part of the mobile experience for smartphone users and emphasize that “that’s why we’re supporting Apple and working closely with them.”
