Mashable just reported on a major upgrade from Facebook. The social network would be rolling out an upgrade to its mobile interface bringing unification by rolling out a single interface across all mobile websites. Currently, Facebook offers two types of mobile websites, one being the touch.facebook.com, which is designed to cater high-end smartphones with touchscreens, and m.facebook.com, which is best suited for feature phone.
According to the social network, the company is facing hurdles in maintaining multiple platforms which results to a major problem when it comes to developing new features.
Facebook would be unifying its mobile presence on m.facebook.com, starting today. An official announcement by Facebook’s Lee Byron, read:
There will no longer be a difference between m.facebook.com and touch.facebook.com. We’ll automatically serve you the best version of the site for your device.
With the growing number of users glued to Facebook mobile, the company had to sort out things in order to maintain the rhythm of rolling out new features. The change would provide a consistent user interface across various mobile devices.
