Facebook home was previously a user interface layer for smartphones. This software was initially made to replace the device existing home screen; this software was like a launcher and was developed by Facebook. It provided users with a unique ability to post and view a post on facebook along with a home screen of launching apps and games. Facebook Home also has a lock screen that tells notifications from various apps including Facebook. And an overlay which helped user to chat through Facebook messages or SMS from any of the numerous apps. Facebook home was made known to the public in a press conference on April 4, 2013, and Facebook released this app on April 12, 2013, only for some devices like HTC and Samsung products.
