Facebook Home Hits 500K Downloads In Five Days, Pales In Comparison To Instagram's Android Shift
It would appear that Facebook Home has just surpassed 500k downloads on Google Play since launching on the platform five days ago on April 16. The app's Google Play listing notes the milestone, and Ben Evans confirmed on Twitter. Facebook Home isn't so much of an app as a user interface for the phone, putting Facebook smack dab in the center of Android user's smartphone experience. Users with Facebook Home can post status updates and view the newsfeed straight from the lock screen, and conduct messaging without ever being interrupted thanks to Chat Heads.
