Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and company just revealed Facebook Home, an app launcher (home screen) replacement that will run on select Android phones. The social network also announced Home’s flagship phone, the Facebook-branded HTC First.
Its Home software, which runs on top of Android, will allow people with Android phones to turn their devices into Facebook phones. The software has a number of features like a Cover Feed, which brings in photos and items from your Newsfeed right to the main screen, and Chat Heads, which allows you to chat with friends in any app.
