Sometimes, analysis comes ahead of the news. Like today. Last night I posted my analysis of why mobile is critical to Facebook and its future. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Facebook is in talks with Nokia (s NOK), the world’s largest phone maker, to embed its social network into Nokia phones. The Journal reports that Nokia is torn between starting its own social network or working with Facebook. It is a no-brainer — starting its own social network would be yet another not-so-smart move by Nokia, which still has to show that it has web chops. Partnering with Facebook, MySpace and others is the right way to go.
