EatHam: You can flip through the pictures, Like them, and even comment on things without ever unlocking your device.

Well, that sounds safe.

FTA: If most people's phones are already Facebook phones, Facebook Home makes them Facebookier, bringing the social-network's content (including, at some point, ads), to your phone's foremost screen.

ISO15693: You guys, you overlook the fact that a new word has entered the lexicon: Facebookier.

I could have lived my entire life without ever encountering the word "Facebookier," and died happy.

Dragonflew: santadog: realmolo: Isn't it pretty well established that Facebook is dying out? Everyone I know has had their fill of it.

I don't expect them to disappear or anything, but I expect their active user base to shrink like crazy in the next couple of years, which will kill their advertising revenue.

It was a fad, like all the other social networking sites. Hopefully, it's the FINAL social networking site.

Everyone on facebook claims to have their breaking points, but no one I know has ever dropped off because of the changes.  New advertising in place, they threaten to leave, and they don't.   Announce all photos are usable by FB at will, everyone threatens to bail, and they don't.  Threats of instant play commercials, and everyone murmurs about leaving again... and they don't.
It's not a fad.  It's becoming a staple of communication.

I didn't bail because of privacy concerns, I don't share enough real info to care.  I bailed because 99% of my posts were images of quotes, Autism Week spam, and links to malware.  It's not Facebook, it's Pastebook.  No one communicates, they just echo.

Maybe you need better friends.
