Facebook Home

Facebook Home

A Facebook "social overlay" for an Android smartphone. Introduced in 2013, Home was preloaded on selected phones and available for others in the Google Play store. Facebook Home puts Facebook front and center as the user interface. The home screen ("Cover Feed") shows posts from the user's News Feed. In 2013, Home became available for certain HTC and Samsung phones, and the HTC First from AT&T was the first phone preloaded with Home.

After one month on the market, Home did not garner accolades, except from the Facebook faithful. AT&T lowered the price of the HTC First from $99 to 99 cents, and Google Play Store reviews were not impressive. A subsequent update made Home less unique. See Facebook.
