    TechCrunch recently had a lengthy sit-down interview with Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, and a few interesting tidbits cam out of the conversation.

He indicated that they have reversed that course and are working on a native Android (and iOS) version of Facebook that will be faster and better in every way.
