Steve Jobs gets on Facebook?

Patrick Scoble just texted me this: “LMFAO Steve showed off the facebook app on the itouch.”

First things first. I gotta talk to Patrick about his language. I’m sure he’ll come up with an inventful response for what “F” stands for in his message.

Anyway, why is he laughing? Because when I got a chance to meet Steve Jobs after the last press conference I asked Steve “are you on Facebook?”

He looked at me strange and answered “no.”

I guess Joe Hewitt’s app converted him. (It still is my favorite app on the iPhone).

Anyway, that’s Patrick’s first reaction to what was announced today. I’m sure there’s more coming. I’m texting him back saying “was being the first kid in school with an iPhone worth $200?”

  1. Hola Robert,

    Things change. In technology things change faster.

    Remember Bill Gates focus: Only PC -> PC Software -> Games too -> let’s rule the internet -> what about enterprise applications -> Melissa and I want to save the world.

    Steve is also like water. Make this clear:

    Apple is in the business of fashion. Technology is a media for them. Facebook is fashionable!

  3. Was watching engadget coverage yesterday of the new iPod lineup! When FB came up on the iPod Touch, I saw that one of Steves friends was “Erik *** ” … so did a quick search on FB for “Erik *** ” .. Found him! (pic the same as on the iPod touch), clicked ‘View Friends’ but no Jobs there :(

    I wonder if Apple let these people know that they were gonna be featured at the release, so they could have turned the ‘View Friends’ feature off if need be!

  7. Funny stuff. These kind of posts have been missing lately. Maybe they don’t count as a contribution to society but they certainly don’t hurt. Keep it up.

  8. Who knows if Steve actually uses Facebook himself. The demo he did today involved fake Facebook accounts that Apple created just for the event. I’m still hoping they leave the “Johnny Appleseed” account active because I want to friend that dude, he always gets to be the first to use every new Apple gizmo! ;)

  11. Why would a CEO be on a website like that? To tell us what he had for breakfast this morning or what album he’s currently listening to? Answers are an apple and Beatles.
