These are the people that gave us that crap Facebook app, which has consistently been the most unstable app on my phones.  They're going to make a home screen replacement?

This isn't Facebook Home.  This is Facebook LAG.

Facebook home is the best thing that can happen for Apple. It'll give Android users the type of laggy and force closey experience that drives people to buy iPhones.

Facebook is making my phone suck = My phone sucks = buy an iPhone.

slashy/ pre-ordered a G1, currently on my 5th Android phone, and I use an iPhone 4 as a company phone

WinoRhino: Rootus: because where are you going to go?

Back to reality? Seriously, it's such a waste of time. I think a lot of people who left MySpace for Facebook, and then leave Facebook eventually will just say "Screw it" and not use anything else. At least, that's what it seems like is happening with my friends and family.

I think people will move to more targeted networks centered around hobbies or particular social scenes. Having this massive umbrella that has everyone from one night stands to your grandmother and employer under it has become rather unattractive.

Article headline "I Like It, but I Don't Like It Like It" ... I stopped there. I can't stand when people talk like this. It's just inarticulate. Why not just click, whistle, grunt and then look at me like I'm supposed to know what the fark you are saying.

Also, can we have a ceremony for the word "literally"? Something similar to when the N word was buried, except let's really mean it this time. How many times have we heard, "I literally died!"? (from someone who didn't... unfortunately)

"The basic assumption behind Facebook Home is that you'd rather see what your friends are up to at any given moment than do things"

Your friends aren't doing things, either.  They're sitting on their asses wherever they are, just like you, staring into a little box and trying to find out what their friends are up to.  Their friends aren't doing things, either.  They're sitting on their asses wherever they are...

A facebook phone is about the last thing I'd want.

I am already trying to decided if I can live without facebook, a phone that automagically hooks me into it sounds farking sweet.

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

Well, that sounds safe.
