Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) reportedly is encouraging its employees to switch from Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhones to devices running Google‘s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android operating system.
In the past, Facebook gave employees iPhones; however, according to Tech Crunch, the push is on to get them to begin using Droid-based phones; FB also is encouraging workers to begin looking for issues with Facebook apps for the Android OS.
The campaign — called “Droidfooding” — is the social media giant’s attempt to begin dealing with the growing number of Android users by understanding the platform better.
As a part of the campaign, users can “Rage Shake” their phones to report bugs. The system interprets a violent back-and-forth shaking as a bug report and communicates the state of the device to a bug reporting system, Tech Crunch reports.
A spokesman for Facebook said the company is not favoring either technology.
