Facebook Home adds more familiar social media faces

35 sec read

On one hand, Facebook has had very little success with Home, their mobile shell software that puts itself front and center on smartphones. On the other hand, they haven’t put a ton of effort into pushing it yet but have been adding little improvements on a fairly regular basis. The latest improvement – the addition of some very popular social image sharing sites.

In September, when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spoke about the progress of Facebook’s Home Android launcher at TC Disrupt, he mentioned that users would soon start to see content from Instagram and other third-party apps on the lock screen, in addition to Facebook posts. Today, it’s beginning to roll that out, first to Android beta testers, and starting with photos and posts from Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr and its own photo network, Instagram. Facebook is not disclosing how many beta users there are who will be getting this, but a spokesperson adds that “We hope to bring this to everyone soon.”
