Today Facebook announced new smartphone software that will put social-networking right on a smartphone's home screen, doing away with that whole pesky Facebook app thing.
The new software, called Home, makes it easier than ever to see your Facebook news feed, as well as friends' profiles, photos and more. (Not to mention the fact that Zuckerberg and his team will now be able to sell ad space on your home page.) Home will be available April 12 on Samsung and HTC phones that run Android.
Is this just the next step toward a Facebook phone? Maybe. In the meantime, now our social media obsession is even closer at hand.
