500,000 Android users download Facebook Home in two weeks
April 23 , 2013
More than 500,000 Android users have downloaded Facebook’s Home app from the Google Play store following its release on April 4.
However, the app has received mixed reviews, with an average rating of 2.2 out of five stars.
The free app replaces the phone's home screen with a Facebook feed and chat options.
According to analysts, while it is a "good start" for the social network to boost its mobile presence, it is likely to just appeal to Facebook's most ardent users.
