Facebook Home reaches 500,000 downloads In just 9 days since its launch in the Google Play Store, the Facebook Home user interface has been downloaded over 500,000 times.
The number is more notable since the software is only available for the HTC One, One X, Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4, and the Note II. Additionally, the software is default on the HTC First.

As explained by the social networking giant, Facebook Home "brings your News Feed to the surface, for access to important social updates without opening up additional applications."

Additionally, Facebook Home includes; Cover Feed, a constant, fresh stream of photos and updates directly from your news feed and is always present as soon as you wake up your phone; Notifications that appear right on your home screen; Chat Heads, the mobile messenger that lets you jump in and out of conversations while you multitask; App Launcher, which lets you view your favorite apps and post right to Facebook from the same spot.

"Home is a completely new experience for your phone," said Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's Founder and CEO at launch. "With Home available right out of the box, you're getting the best quality experience for connecting with your friends."
