Facebook shuts down leaked Facebook Home beta Earlier today, a pre-release beta version of the upcoming Facebook Home made its way to the Net.
The software officially launches on April 12th with the release of the HTC First, and will be compatible with five other devices, as well. This version seems to have had no issues being installed on Google's Nexus 4 and Nexus 7, however.

"Chat Heads" was not working, and there was a 720p resolution restriction, but other than that the software seemed to be running decently.

By this afternoon, however, Facebook had stopped the party, shutting off apps access to their servers. If you are really interested in the interface, Friday is not too far away.
