Facebook Moves To Make It More Dominant In Mobiles [bbc.co.uk]
Facebook has set out a strategy it hopes will make it as dominant in mobiles as it is in social networks.

At the heart of its plans is making the mobile phone a more social experience and offering shopping discounts.

The company announced the opportunity for businesses to offer deals to users via their phone.

Facebook also revealed plans for a single sign-on that lets users log in to other phone applications with their Facebook name and password.

If there was a FB phone do you think you would have to agree to allow FB to own all your conversations, text messages and photos from that phone?

Kiddies don't have credit cards to buy stuff with do they? Facebook sure isn't trying to retain the older more family oriented users with stuff like Mafia Wars, Farmville and constant dating ad bombardment.

In fact having your account turned into a tool to sell you stuff is a turn off and some of my family members did just that, turned off facebook. Face-phone? Users didn't ask for that. Sell out your userbase for profit at your own risk Facecrack.
