But unfortunately, this app is for older phones as Facebook didn’t give it the much-needed attention. If you are on the latest android platform then the chances are that it might not run properly. This app basically works as a defacto launcher for facebook putting all the features related to social media at your fingertips.
Using the Facebook Home app
To start using a Facebook home you need to download and install the app by clicking on the download button above. At this stage, you will also know if the app is compatible with your phone. Otherwise to run you may need to downgrade to the older version of the Facebook app to make it work.
When you wake your phone, you see Cover Feed, an endless stream of friends’ photos and updates from your news feed. Chat messages, icons, notifications, and other text overlays this full-screen photo backdrop. The photos auto-scroll, or you can flick to advance. To get a closer look at a friend’s photo, press and hold the image.
By scrolling left or right, you can view other status updates. Built into the lock screen is a way to like and comment on various status updates so you can actually interact with anyone on Facebook without unlocking your phone. When you tap on the lock screen, your avatar will pop up with three options.
You can open the home screen and app drawer by going up, Facebook Messenger by going left, and the right dot should take you back to your phone’s home screens.
