New mobile website for Facebook

Facebook has revealed that an upgraded versions of its website has been out. At present Facebook has two websites like m.facebook.com and touch.facebook.com for touch based smartphones like iDevice.

According to Lee Byron, Head of mobile products at Facebook :

“We were limited by the lowest common denominator for each site. We couldn’t use JavaScript and had device specific file size limitations on m.facebook.com. Supporting a wide array of touch phones of varying quality on touch.facebook.com limited our ability to use modern CSS and JavaScript APIs.”

“Every time we launched a new feature, we had to build it multiple times across different code bases: once for facebook.com, then again for m.facebook.com, touch.facebook.com, and in native applications as well. Honestly, we weren’t very good at doing this, so certain features were missing on different devices.”
