An F8 attendee took notice of Facebook taking charge of its mobile fate. "It's clear that Facebook's putting a lot of emphasis on mobile, and they want to own the mobile app ecosystem, the mobile ad ecosystem, which is why they're trying to get every mobile developer to serve their ads," said Rich Sutton, CTO at Nexgate, which offers a compliance and security application that works with Facebook. He appreciated the company's emphasis on APIs. "The primary thing that we want is the stability in the APIs. We have a very deep API integration. We make a lot of calls into the API, and I'm very happy that Facebook is transitioning from a company that lets it fly to a company that understands that they're becoming an important layer of substrate on the Internet."
