This is awesome.
I hope all androids with quadcores and above ship with this from now on.

Facebook will hopefully bring a deeply integrated ads experience, I'm hoping to support them. And can't wait
for targeted ads just for me.

This is a specialized UI only for those who need it, e.g. frequent mobile FB users. If you think it's not for you, then shut up.

Sure, a bike helmet may look stupid on you if you don't ride a bike. But it is helpful and even fashionable to those who do. By commenting negatively, you're becoming what you think the app is (e.g. stupid), because you're commenting on something that isn't for you to begin with.

Unless, you think you're a potential user, but this one's all wrong.

It's a social network for either organising events (good), or people who don't really get out the house and are bored (bad as it's making them less social by posting dribble that no-one wants to read and not leave the house as they think its fun).

"Oh yes, we are so cool and hipster. Facebook? What is that? We don't use it because it is too mainstream."

A bunch of losers who need to bash a popular service so they can feel cool. Stupid kids.

This is shit.

And the fact that I'm seeing adds on this website telling me to sign up for fb is testament to their downfall anytime soon...5 years tops.

Almost everyone bashing it now will try it and possibly keep it so spare everyone your rants. A facebook launcher was inevitable anyway. One interesting feature which the FBH has and which one of Google's OS updates should have is the ability to respond to notifications without leaving your current screen. Maybe key lime pie may have this?

Just like to point out, this is not a phone (that is separate), this is the software that will be available on all phones.
OT, yes, most of us think it is not necessary. But I am sure we will all try it, and then make up our minds. This is very interesting, a social launcher could help better integrate phones in the future, who knows. Though, releasing HTC First is stupid, as the phone has no redeeming features. Just my two pence :)

facebook home is the best launcher that replaces other launchers like apex etc., it is not for anti social people who doesnt get out of their house and stare at their phone all day lol XD
