Facebook Home for Android will come to Malaysia on 13 April 2013

What is Facebook Home? 
"Facebook Home" is a family of apps and a content feed that takes over an Android devices’ lock screen and home screen. Visit their official website at https://www.facebook.com/home.

The Facebook Home will be available on 12 April 2013, mean we will get the Facebook Home on 13 April 2013 in Malaysia. I am not sure if it is available for tablets or not. I think that mostly for the smartphones which have Android, it is fine to download it.


"Cover Feed" is the main cover on Facebook Home screen, the users to scrolls through their friends'updates at the same time allows the user to leave a comment or "Like" on a photo by tapping twice. And there are also filters that allow users to hide certain type of content or to hide updates from certain friends.

"Chat Heads" focuses on messaging, let the users to get the message then reply to their friends when it pops up on their screen of smartphone, at same time you watch video or checking the photo gallery in your smartphone. For example, Chat Heads are float on top of other apps; you don’t have to switch to Messenger to chat to friends. You can carry on a conversation while surfing the web or playing Angry Birds. So, it is cool!

"Notification" make you get the attraction to see everything going on in the world. But when something happens that's more important and directed at you, like a friend posting on your timeline, you'll receive notifications with their profile pictures. If you don't want to deal with them right now, you can just swipe to hide them and keep flipping through cover feed until you want them back.


You curious about how to use Facebook Home on your smartphones, such as HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II and many? Please watch the youtube below;


Facebook Home for Android will be available for download from the Google Play Store on 12 April 2013. I am really look forward for the Facebook Home if it can be available for my tablet Samsung or not? :) If you have Android smartphone, you can check on Google Play Store.


Be honest, I thought that Facebook created their own smartphone...Oh no! Facebook is working with HTC to create an operating system for Android UI. Just, HTC will be the first HTC-Facebook smartphone to market on 12 April 2013.

Facebook Home make you like to chat with friends on your home of smarphone? So the Whatapps, Viber, Line, and chat apps will face the big problem? Whatapps still be popular in our country, mostly Deaf friend love to use whatapps because it's FREE, than using SMS!

If Facebook win everyone's heart with their Android, then Apple will face some serious issues about iPhone iOS sales! You know, Android VS iOS still be in the battle until now!

I think that Facebook want everyone attracted to their own userface Android for Facebook on every smartphone? Google will face the challenges of Android from Facebook! Read a very funny comic below;
