Facebook To Address "Home" Software Criticism

Facebook Home was introduced with much fanfare one month ago. So far it has not lived up to the hype.

The app for Android smartphones has a two-star rating in the Google Play store. And the HTC First phone -- the first to come preloaded with the Home software, which is available in the U.S. through AT&T -- was recently slashed from $99 with a two-year contract to 99 cents.

Facebook previewed some upgrades to Facebook Home during a small gathering of journalists Thursday at the company’s Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters. The upgrades were designed to address the chief complaint from users: that Facebook takes over the phone at the expense of every other app on it.Facebook To Address "Home" Software Criticism [latimes.com]

Looks like things have gone from bad to worse on this one...

Facebook Home flagship phone, HTC First, may be discontinued

Facebook’s HTC First, the smartphone herald of Facebook Home, will be discontinued by carrier partner AT&T, according a report from BGR Monday. The phones, released just over a month ago, will be returned as unsold inventory to HTC, with only 15,000 handsets making it into customers’ hands.

Facebook home is useless I am not surprised.

Facebook itself is lucky to be still there.

Really? Did the price really drop from $99 to $0.99?

You'd be fairly annoyed if you had bought it at the original price.

It may have been a good investment, the thing might become a rare collectible ...in a few decades.

Numerologists may make something of this:

If there are 1 Billion active FB users, and 15,000 bought the FB phone, that translates to:

"(1) in 66,666.666..." FB users bought it.
