Facebook Home

A collection of apps from Facebook that provides a stream of Facebook posts, photos and links on a smartphone‘s home screen or lock screen. By replacing the smartphone’s standard home screen, Facebook Home brings the social network‘s most popular features to the forefront of a user’s smartphone.

While long rumored to be an actual smartphone from Facebook (i.e. Facebook Phone), Facebook Home instead officially launched as a free app for Android-powered smartphones. Facebook Home is being built in to some smartphones such as the HTC First, and it can be downloaded from the Google Play store for Android phones that don’t already have Facebook Home pre-installed.

Facebook Home isn’t currently available for Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, but analysts report Facebook may be working with Apple to create a version for the iPhone.
