This week reports surfaced that claimed that Samsung was working on a social network that would rival Facebook. The information was allegedly released by a senior executive of the Korean company, but ultimately was denied by company officials .
Asian Corporation issued a press official made it clear that currently do not want to enter the social networking market: “[...] Several articles have claimed that Samsung Electronics will offer a service similar to Facebook, being developed under the code name ‘Samsung Facebook’. However this is not true and the rumor is unfounded “.
representatives indicated that another Korean company are working to improve the functions of Family Story (service launched in February this year on various devices), but this is not wishing to bring this platform to a new level. It is great that Samsung has denied the information quickly, as this at least avoids unnecessary speculation or criticism.
Honestly the idea that the Asian giant get into the networking world social was crazy, not because they have the means to do it but it does not need . Also if it were a real project and confidential basis would have a more creative code name “Samsung Facebook.”
Hopefully Samsung continue to keep the focus on hardware production, so delight us with new devices.
