Yesterday, Facebook announced its new Home for Android, delving deeper into OS integration than we’ve ever seen from one of the company’s mobile apps. As this move is so unprecedented, plenty of you are likely a little unsure what to think about the news. Is this an exciting new way to interact with social services? Is putting so much focus on a single company’s app counter to the spirit of Android? Should you be worried about the privacy implications of an “always on” Facebook app?
There’s a lot to discuss, so we pulled together some of the editorial staff here at Pocketnow to talk about our feelings on Facebook Home. What does it mean for Facebook, but what does it also mean for Android in general?
Taking part in this discussion are:
- Brandon Miniman, Editor-in-Chief (in Philadelphia, PA, USA)
- Jaime Rivera, Multimedia Manager (in San Pedro Sula, Honduras)
- Stephen Schenck, Chief News Editor (in Princeton, NJ, USA)
- Taylor Martin, Senior Editor (in North Carolina, USA)
