Facebook recently held a hackathon at its headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., along with Google, Jawbone, Fitbit, Recon, and Pebble, with a focus on wearable technology, but Facebook Head of Mobile Products Erick Tseng told Engadget the social network has not quite figured out its approach yet.
Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg spoke at AllThingsD’s D11 conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., Wednesday, touching on several topics in her 45 minutes on stage, including her book, her relationship with Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook Home, Google Glass, Waze (indirectly), and a Facebook ad network.
While there have been two unofficial Facebook applications for Google Glass, Google announced Thursday at its I/O conference that an official Facebook app is coming to the high-tech specs. It will allow Google Glass owners to instantly share photos to their Facebook accounts.
Google Glass is not even available to the public yet, and there are already two Facebook applications for the head-mounted device, with photo-sharing app Glass to Facebook now joined by the much more thorough ThroughGlass.
Although it’s only available to a super-select few, Facebook already has a home on Google Glass. It’s not the official Facebook application, but TechCrunch reports that recently launched photo sharing app Glass to Facebook uploads photos taken with Google Glass to users’ Facebook accounts.
