Facebook Home, the social networks new software for Android devices, has reached more than 500,000 downloads. While its reviews are mostly negative, one comic strip points out why Google CEO Larry Page should still be worried.
The reviews, however, aren’t good: Its average rating sits at just 2.2 out of a possible five stars tallied from more than 11,000 reviews.
Common complaints include battery drain, too many required clicks and gestures, and feeling overwhelmed by the constant stream of Facebook fluff.
While users aren’t impressed, if Facebook Home should bother anyone, it’s Google CEO Larry Page, according to an amusing comic strip posted by “The Joy of Tech.” The comic highlights one of Facebook Home’s most intrusive features, Chat Heads, which are conversation bubbles that pop up on your Android device, displaying the user’s profile picture when he or she sends you a message. Have a look.
