    If Facebook really wanted its employees to switch to Android phones, why not offer a company-wide phone deal? Using posters seem so running-for-student-class-treasurer-ish, doesn't it?

    You post implies that people that work for Facebook attempt to use logic in their day-to-day.

    I'd assume its in reference to the marketing line of "eating your own dog food," meaning use your own product. Now, why FB is saying android is their own product is beyond me, but that's the way I took it.

    I'm sure many "attempt" it. He wasn't implying they succeed though.:D

    It's because the Facebook application on Android has been really bad.

    I have two friends that work at FB and they both got phones for free plus a data plan which is paid by FB.

    That being said, I'm sure that FB is not implying Android is theirs, they are simply pointing out that Android market share is growing much faster than iPhone market share is and people should dogfood the FB App for Android. At least that's what I get from this.

    Thanks for sharing. :)

    It's a play on words on a term called "dogfooding". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eating_your_own_dog_food

    I have it on good authority that Zuck made these himself in his basement after work.

    Thanks for the droidfood explanations. I had been suspicious that it was completely fucking retarded, and now I am no longer suspicious.
