    Well have to wait and see. I may try it out, but my phone gets used for more than just Facebook.

    Wonder how this compares to Blinkered type integration on the HTC One...

    I have no plans on using it. Facebook Home = ads being placed on your homescreen.

    Yeah I saw that. I mean ok it's free, some launchers on the market that our free have ads and thats ok. Difference is you can pay to remove them, not the case with home.

    Not to mention overall as a launcher it just seems weak. And android doesn't natively support lock screen replacements, so all the ones I've tried are a wonky, I imagine home will be no exception

    0% chance of me using a Facebook branded launcher on a Nexus device, especially if it's going to include advertisements to make Facebook money. AND!!! Just to double down, I'll slap the phone out of the hand of any who dare use this launcher in my presence.

    Maybe have them arrested! It's treason! Treason! (ok, maybe that's over the top, it's just highly suspicious criminal behavior and slapping it out of their hand may be sufficient)...

    I will certainly give it a try if it ever comes to the nexus 4, mainly for the lockscreen just because it looks so pretty!

    I refuse to use Facebook as I am a high school student and colleges and jobs later on check your Facebook. Even if you don't post anything inappropriate, you can still be tagged on an obscene photo by a friend, and that is just as bad. Social networks are not for me. Texting and XBOX is fine for me.

    So no, I will not be using Facebook home as I am paranoid that they will stalk me and I don't want Facebook and Google stalking me at the same time.

    This is the reason I will never buy Google glass or talk to anyone using it. Google can watch whatever your doing, and I don't want to be incriminated because of something I said out with friends back in high school.

    I think it's wise to not waste your money on all the latest phones when you're a high school student.

    Also, you can't say that when you yourself are using a Nexus S. On Sprint.

    I would rather have a working free phone and a better computer or car then a brand new phone. I wouldn't have been able to afford my Alienware if i had a GS3.

    And also, not to be rude as I love my mom, but she took my upgrade when she broke her phone, and then my dad's when she broke it 13 days later. So an upgrade is not in my future.

    I'm working on trying to buy a used Droid RAZR Maxx HD or a Note 2 so if anybody wants to sell one

    I will pass. I might try it but doubt it will stay for long. There is too much porn on facebook at the moment and that won't be the best to see when people are on my phone and my girlfriend would go nuts - thinking its a saved image of someone else.

    Only problem with that is that HTC phones aren't crap. So there goes your logic.

    NONBFN. Facebook is too intrusive as is - no way I'm giving them more data than I already do.

    Why is everyone ignoring the big question (and by everyone I mean the media)? Is contact syncing finally fixed?

    Seriously can't believe media attended the conference and didn't ask this, and no faq has mentioned it either

    I won't be using Facebook Home. I wish they would just make a decent Android app. I don't use Facebook that much and would find this new Facebook launcher too intrusive. I don't want it taking over my Home screens. Let's hope that there is also the option for just an overhauled Android app when Home is released. Otherwise I may be done with Facebook.

    Great initiative! I'm so excited... No doubt it's basically a social part on top of the Android operating system that changes your screen. Which will be available for download on April 12. Sure will must be referenced long into the future.
