Now, wait a minute... isn't Facebook a champion of Open Source? A quick search turns up, "Facebook has been developed from the ground up using open source software" - Okay, maybe I'm just used to the NetBSD thought process between Open Source.

That said, who in their right mind decided that creating an app that only works on five specific devices was a good idea? Evidently, the amount of information that this app is stea... er, capturing about its users is worth the number of hours required to develop it...

It didnG«÷t do well at
the polls, shocker. You have to literally be a little to wrapped up in your
social media life or you are the ripe age of 14 where Facebook is what you
would want for a home navigation screen. Seems like a replacement that intends
to be the control all for you device as well. By making Facebook your
home screen and using it as a navigational tool seems like a waste, just to see
friendG«÷s status in-between accessing my device.
Also any feed back on the amount if ads that mobile device gets plastered
with when using the Facebook home screen?
