Facebook announced last week that it would be introducing a new product that would change the mobile experience of The Social Network forever. In his announcement, Mark Zuckerberg talked about their “mobile best” strategy (as opposed to the common mobile first strategy for interactive software). The platform looks to be very exciting for Facebook fanatics such as myself. Here are some main features:
- Replacing the lock-screen with Timeline updates and Photos from your Facebook account.
- Chat Heads – Their new feature that keeps the communication portion of SMS and Facebook Messenger in the forefront of your phone experience.
- People First, Apps Second – The user interface that highlights “the people in your life” and let Apps take a back seat.
They are also about to launch their first ever television campaign across the US and you can see one of a series of new spots promoting Facebook Home here: WATCH HERE
