Facebook Home A Letdown


As a Facebook addict… err… enthusiast, I was one of those geeks that literally counted down the days until I could download Facebook Home to my Samsung Galaxy S3.

I could barely wait to try it out because I just knew I was going to fall head over heels in love with it. I mean the videos of it left me drooling so I had to love it, right?

When the moment came that I could finally install it I think I was almost dancing in my chair. (Okay yeah, I am weird about getting to play with new toys.) It came as a complete and total shock to me when I discovered that I didn’t like it.

Actually, that is being pretty kind. The truth is I couldn’t stand it.

At first I thought maybe my dislike was related to the fact that I am a bit of a creature of habit that doesn’t much like changes so I really tried to give it the benefit of the doubt by leaving it installed longer than 5 minutes.

I really WANTED to like it.

The idea of it seemed so cool but the reality of it was much more invasive of my phone than I wanted it to be. After a little over 5 hours I gave in and removed it completely.

Will I try it again someday? Maybe, but I kind of doubt it.
