Facebook Home Update New Features

Video: Facebook is still trying to take over Android

December 20th, 2013

Looking back on BGR’s archive of Facebook Home stories, a very clear theme arises: no one cares about Facebook Home, Facebook’s unique mobile software that takes over Android phones and places Facebook status updates, photos and messages front and center.

Facebook Home Failure Lessons

Here’s what Facebook learned from the failed Home experiment

November 14th, 2013

No one was interested in Facebook Home — not smartphone owners, not smartphone vendors. Facebook even had to provide disgruntled Home users with a step-by-step guide to disable the software entirely.

No Home for Facebook at AT&T: HTC First to be discontinued

May 13th, 2013
