Facebook Home is the new proposal from Zuckerberg fro mobile devices.
It is installed as a layer in your Android
and it transforms your operative system making it working around Facebook
. This means that, amongst many other things, that the start screen of your device will transform into a path where you will have all the updates of your wall. A continuous sequence of publishing stories and pictures
with which you will be able to interact by just turning on your device. Your section of news in the wall
is more accesible now that it has never been before.
Together with the app Facebook Messenger
, Facebook Home gives you the possibility to chat with your friends
without having to close any app. You will have the Facebook chat
always open in the background so you can send and receive all the messages and SMS while you are surfing the Internet, watching a video, etc. The called "chat bubbles" will appear in the app that you are using and you will not need to close it to answer and see what your friends tell you.
will also appear in the main screen, so you can access them easily or hide it so you cankeep on reading the "cover feed" with the publications of your friends. Finally, Facebook Home also0 offers an app launcher
completelly customizable so you have your favourite apps closer. By doing so, you will be able to publish in Facebook from the same place, upload a picture to Instagram, and access to any app that you want.
