    What is Facebook Home

    I just saw HTC First mobile phone on web. It seems like this is the first Facebook phone that will come with Facebook Home. I am not able to find any information on it. What is it actually. Is it an application or some kind of service of device model or from Facebook? There is hardly any information available on the same. If it is an application then can I use the same on some other mobile device also? I am sure there will be some way to do the same. It looks Facebook is planning something unique about HTC First.




    Can anyone please provide me detailed info about this newly launched or to be launched ‘Facebook Home’ ?

    Re: What is Facebook Home

    Couple of days ago when Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook Home, he clearly said that “We’re not building a phone and we’re not building an operating system.” This is surely an application but some kind of unique application which will TAKE OVER your entire Android operating system. For example, it changes your home screen, lock screen and does such integration that you will see your Facebook updates, Photos, Friends all over the device. Facebook Home app changes changes the device in such way that it looks like you are using dedicated Facebook Phone by keeping you inside your social account every minute. To make it clear Facebook CEO also said “Facebook Home puts people first instead of apps and makes an Android phone a social device.”

    As far as HTC First is concerned, it is going to be the first device to come built-in with this new app. However the application will also be available for download for other all compatible Android smartphones starting from April 12, 2013. You can get more detailed info about Facebook Home integration in this video below.


    However as of not the new Facebook Home app is only announced for smartphones including HTC One, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2. The can be downloaded from Google Play store since April 12.

    Nope, it is not the Facebook Phone. It is an application just to simply your facebook usage. Nothing else. The app is designed for Android phone and it is possible to use the same in future on other devices also. It is a social networking app which is designed in collaboration with different services giving an entirely new experience for the people. it is a kind of family app where you can see the news, feed and other messages simply on the home screen without going on the facebook page.

    Re: What is Facebook Home

    Yeah, you are right MegaTron, it is just another facebook application. But as officially designed by Facebook itself, the app is more organized and packed with Social features. Right now there is no confirmation that the app is going to come for other devices also. It is only going to release for HTC First. It is a an android app so there is no clear indication that it will be for Windows Phone or for other platforms. But yet we can wait back to see. The app offers you get your updates instantly with single tap.

    The app is a kind of redesigned interface of FB for smartphones. What you access on a web browser you can get through a app here. It has a cover feed that offers you fresh content from your wall. It is more better and user friendly. It looks Facebook is simply coming to mobile in a more different way. You can simply stay updated from your friend through this app. Facebook Home offers you to comment instantly from the cover feed making interaction more easier.

    It is a specified application for Facebook with more organized way of covering your and your friend’s activities on Social Network, the app brings everything on your screen. You can see the notification, chat with your friends, send them messages directly through integrated FB messenger are common stuff. There is a app launcher available on the same. The app launcher helps you to launch your favorite application or games that you play on Facebook. It has lots of integration and it is really better. We will see what all exactly it does when it launches on April 12.
