Today, Facebook further emphasized its commitment to HTML5 and mobile development by announcing it has hired web developer James Pearce as the company's new mobile head of developer relations, reports paidContent.

Prior to joining Facebook, Pearce headed up developer relations at Sensha, which creates mobile development frameworks that help developers create web-content in HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript.

For Facebook, hiring Pearce is just the latest in the company's series of mobile-focused moves. In October, Facebook made a notable push toward HTML5 with the launch of its new mobile app that lets users play web-based mobile games like Zynga's FarmVille Express, Wooga's Magic Land: Island, and Moblyng's Social Poker Live.

Major Facebook game developers, including Zynga, set out to bring even more of their social games to mobile devices, giving Facebook more incentive to support these games on its own mobile platform.
