Facebook home everywhere



Looks like we can now have Facebook Home readily available on more than just the proposed list of Smartphones that Facebook originally intend Home to be installed. According to an article on Mashable, Android fans can now have Home on Android 4.0 or higher. Good to know that Facebook actually has plans to open their net to greater target group and get more people to download and use their product. While it is vital to remember who your audiences are, it is also extremely crucial understanding their restrictions. Which in this case is the lack of users currently possessing the device to support Home. So for now, users who don’t have an HTC One X, HTC One, HTC First, Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II can still enjoy having the app on their phone but on a sideload basis. And, it would still work on your phone albeit there will be a message indicating that Home might not be running at it’s full performance.

The article also indicates that Facebook Home works on Nexus 4 and concludes after some testing that it is possible that every phone that is running a compatible version of Android will be able to install Home. Personally, I do not own an Android phone but I would be more than curious to test out Home and see what it really has to offer.
