Zuckerberg says Native Mobile App delivers better for Facebook than HTML5.
“The biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5, because it’s just not there yet….We had to start over and rewrite everything to be native. We burned two years. It may turn out it was one of the biggest if not the biggest strategic mistake we made….We believed that because it [HTML5] used the same technology as the desktop, we thought it could improve. But it wasn’t good enough. We realized the only way we could get there was to go native.”
