Facebook Home now Losing Popularity Very Quickly

Breaking News – Facebook invested a lot of time and effort into their version of a mobile operating system, well a the GUI for your smartphone.

The CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook Home is the next version of Facebook, but the figures are in and it hasn’t made a massive impression on the market. The analytics data shows that Facebook Home has been steadily dropping, this comes as a shock since Facebook has an active user base of one billion.

Facebook Home has had one million downloads since it’s release, the numbers of Home users should increase as a direct coincidence of AT&T lowering the price of the HTC First to $0.99 with a two year contract. The low Home figures could be due to the fact that only a limited amount of devices support the software: HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 along with the already mentioned HTC first.

Since the initial rise and then subsequent fall of the app it has not returned to the top 100 downloaded apps in any of the countries it has been released in yet, it seems that the buzz and the shine of the new software has worn off. This data just goes to show that even though we do like Facebook it doesn’t necessarily mean that we want it to be with us every time we unlock our phones.
