Facebook today announced the forthcoming re-launch of m.facebook.com, which will represent a new direction for the company's mobile efforts. The wholly re-realized web site is said to be accessible from a much wider range of handsets and mobile browsers, and offers a simpler tool set to users. Facebook says that moving forward, it will focus more on how users access its services from mobile web browsers rather than dedicated mobile applications. "We are internalizing our own strategies around HTML5 to prove out that this emphasis on the mobile Web can actually work," said Erick Tseng, Facebook's head of mobile. "Yes, there is going to be a day when the majority of folks have something that looks more like an Android, but I don't believe that's going to happen in the next year, probably not the next two years." The revised web site is going to be rolled out to all of Facebook's 250 million mobile users over the coming weeks.
