google-facebook-elliott-schrageDetails are not exactly free-flowing, but Facebook are apparently hosting a “Mobile Mixer” in the imminent future. The word trickling down is that the social networking giant, among other things, is expected to announce support for Google’s Android operating system. The rumours are that Facebook have been developing their application in collaboration with Google themselves. This makes it an official application that should be excellent to use.

Many Facebook users turn to their mobile devices to check their updates and see what their friends are up to. The media seem to perceive Twitter as a direct Facebook competitor and Facebook’s push to encourage users to use mobile based Facebook services is certainly a means to an end as far as they are concerned; they want to be the biggest mobile identity website outright and increasing their mobile presence will certainly aid in this quest.

So, perhaps on September the 8th, we can expect to see an official Facebook application for Android?
