*Facebook Home* is a user interface layer for Android-compatible
smartphones that was developed by Facebook, a social networking service.
Designed to be a drop-in replacement for the existing home screen
("launcher") on an Android device, the software provides a replacement home
screen that allows users to easily view and post content on Facebook along
with launching apps, a replacement lock screen that displays notifications
from Facebook and other apps, and an overlay which allows users to chat via
Facebook messages or SMS from any app. Facebook Home was unveiled at a
press event on April 4, 2013, and was released on April 12, 2013 for a
limited selection of devices from HTC and Samsung
Electronics—including the HTC First, a new smartphone pre-loaded with
the software.

Citing that many users use smartphones for social networking services such
as Facebook, its designers aimed to create an alternate user environment
that would emphasize interacting with the device through people instead of
apps. The /Cover Feed/ serves as the replacement home screen while using
Facebook Home; it is used to view updates posted by others on Facebook in a
full screen environment and access an application launcher. The lock screen
displays notifications (sorted by priority using an internal algorithm)
from both Facebook and other apps on cards, while also displaying updates
in a similar format.^[1] Home aims
