What Is Facebook Home?

The powers that be at Android and Facebook have teamed up in an effort to topple the almighty iPhone in the hearts and minds of social media lovers everywhere. What is the creation this meeting of the minds came up with? It’s called Facebook Home; and if you haven’t heard of it yet, you probably will – very soon.

Facebook Fans Rejoice

Who doesn’t have a Facebook obsession these days? Whether it’s crazy cat videos, silly little postcard witticisms, or the ability to keep in touch with friends and family in one convenient location – and without the necessary round of ten thousand phone calls and text messages to share big news with everyone in your social circles – Facebook is becoming a larger part of society every day.

What Are the Benefits of Facebook Home?

For people who spend a lot of time navigating in and out of Facebook apps on their mobile phones, the benefits are immeasurable. For one thing, updates, new posts, and Facebook notifications go directly to your Facebook phone screen. Chat heads allows you to send and receive Facebook messages and texts in a single location. You can even continue chatting while using other mobile apps. The bottom line is that this is the definitive Facebook tool for anyone who takes their social networking seriously.

Who Can Get the App?

Currently, the Facebook Home app is only available on certain phones that have been named an official Facebook phone. They include:

  • HTC One X
  • HTC One X+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Samsung Galaxy S III

While you are able to download the Home app from the Google Play Store for any of the above phones, the phone that’s getting the most attention as the definitive Facebook Phone is the HTC First. In addition to being available on phones, the Home app should be available for tablets this summer.

What’s the Big Deal?

People are living their lives on the go more and more. This means more people are looking for ways to stay connected without being tied to their laptops or tablet devices.

Facebook Home puts that information in the palms of people's hands and makes it easier than ever for young and old alike to carry on long Facebook conversations, check out videos, and even vote on their best friends cute kid contest entries. Whether they’re watching their kids practice soccer, standing in line at the bank, or waiting on movies to start at local cinemas, people can connect with their friends at any point. You can even fill your phone screen with friends and family and their posts to your Facebook news feed so that you’re always up-to-date with what's going on with your family tree.

If you love Facebook and use it regularly, you really can’t go wrong with a phone that includes Facebook’s new app as a major feature. Download the app today if you already have a compatible phone and let us know what you think.

Whether you’re using an HTC One or Samsung Galaxy to use Facebook’s new app, be sure that your phone is protected with the best skin ever.
