The big news in the tech world today is the official reveal of Facebook Home, a series of apps that will be made for Android-based smartphones that is supposed to make the Facebook experience front and center on the phone, rather than just one app.
It didnt take long for Microsoft to poke (no pun intended) a little fun at Facebook Home and Facebooks CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Microsofts Windows Phone Twitter page posted up a note that slightly paraphrased Zuckerbergs statement during todays press conference that Facebook Home will be centered around people.
The comparison is apt in that Microsoft has promoted Windows Phone in general, and Windows Phone 8 in particular, as an operating system that was made to be customized by Windows Phone device owners, with features such as the Start screen with customizable Live Tiles, the People hub to collect messages from several social networks and more.
Of course, Microsoft is a long time investor in Facebook and has partnered with the company on some projects, including integrating Facebook features in Microsofts Bing search service.
