Millions of people have the Facebook app on their Android phone. Far fewer users have installed Facebook Home, the apperating system that debuted on the HTC First, the phone nobody bought. So now you can get Home on a wider array of Android phones.
Facebook Home gets a new home.

New app finds out which Facebook friends are more miserable than you Death and Taxes Time has created a web app that mines through your Facebook data and determines which of your friends are the happiest (and which are the most miserable).
That way you can both eat your heart out with envy and console yourself that others are worse off than you.
Is Facebook getting into the electronic money business? According to a report by Financial Times, the social network is “weeks away” from Ireland granting it regulatory approval to launch a service that would allow users to store, pay with, and exchange money with other users.
Facebook has decided that i f you don't spend your money ON Facebook, you should at least spend your money THROUGH Facebook.
Use these Facebook Page tools, Swayy, Canva, ShortStack, HyperAlerts and Tagboard, to help you manage your Facebook Page more effectively.
I think I'll like Tagboard. Gonna try it out.
In recent years, it has been witnessed that social business pages have been crucial for brands marketing themselves, as they allow content to reach the masses of people globally and extend brands’ awareness. Traditional advertising is dead, and the best way to connect with customers today is by utilizing the most powerful networking platforms the world has ever known. Social media marketing saves money, saves time, allows businesses to connect with consumers more directly and intimately than ever before, and provides unprecedented opportunities for targeted marketing.
It seems optimization is a never ending process. That's social for you.
Gone are the days of “free marketing.” Get ready to pony up if you want your Facebook page to be seen.
By now, we all know. Big question is, what are we doing about it?
While photos remain the most common type of post for Facebook pages, and they continue to generate strong engagement, videos result in significantly higher engagement, yet they accounted for just 3 percent of pages’ posts in a recent study by social analytics firm Quintly, compared with 54 percent for photos.
Photos, videos, whatever... If Facebook is restricting your reach, what is the point?
It’s been a busy first quarter for Facebook. From acquisitions to algorithms, there have been more than 10 new announcements in the first three months of the year, causing many brands to feel cold toward the global social site. With spring knocking on the door, here’s a breakdown of the most important changes Facebook has made to help brands flourish.
Eventful year for Facebook, and it is still March.
Facebook is changing their look again. This time, the “Pages” receive the makeover. Seems like they’ve been paying a lot of attention to the function and
I look forward to it.
An accuracy rate of 97.25 percent is fairly impressive in most cases, and when it comes to facial recognition, DeepFace, a facial-verification software project being developed by Facebook, reached that level, according to a research paper released by the social network last week, which added that human beings shown two unfamiliar photos of faces were able to identify whether or not the subjects were the same person 97.53 percent of the time, barely edging out DeepFace.
Well, we will see how that turns out. I am not very confident about that 97.25 percent being touted.
Why stop at the News Feed and pages for desktop? Facebook also pointed its redesign wand at events pages.
Facebook is going strong. Where? Tell you when I find out.
For every happy status update you post on Facebook, an extra 1.75 positive posts than normal are generated among your friends. And for every sad status ...
Facebook + emotion = contagion
I agree. A lie on Facebook is as good or as bad as a lie in real life.
Need to 'spring clean' your Facebook? We don't need an announcement allvoices One of the most tiresome aspects of the Facebook experience is seeing what can best be described as attention-grabbing Facebook status updates where the writer states an...
I agree. It is the height of dumbness to ask other FB users if they want to stay on as your friend, because you are on a scrub-the-list mission.

We social media site users are about to become collateral damage.
Facebook today announced plans to clean up the News Feed by reducing stories that users are reporting as spammy or simply that they don't want to see. This
Who, me? The only spam I know is the kind you eat.
Facebook is reportedly exploring a partnership with anonymous gossip app Secret. That's actually a brilliant idea, one that would help Facebook reach more teens and loosen up all its users.
Gee. Now Facebook will drive you underground and sell your underground information.
Facebook: we’d love to say “It’s not you, it’s us” but it’s totally you. You’ve changed. A lot.
You can pay someone to get you a lot of Facebook likes. Or you can pay FACEBOOK to get you a lot of Facebook likes.
Is it a goodbye? lol

FYI - Deleted Facebook conversations are still there, waiting to come back to haunt you.

Going to take you a while to digest this one.
The company is telling Page owners to expect status updates to reach a smaller percentage of fans. Read this article by Jennifer Van Grove on CNET News.
Facebook squeezes your testicles some more.
According to recent public data release (The Infinite Dial 2014), Facebook is currently used by nearly 80% of Americans 12-17 and 18-24. While newer services like Instagram and Snapchat have surged past some other social networking sites and services with teens, Facebook still has the lead in user base, and not by a little.
The teens are not leaving Facebook, it appears. Is that a sign for the parents to leave?
Our declaration last October that Facebook was failing marketers and that brands should focus their social efforts elsewhere created a lot of discussion.
Facebook buying fan likes? Sounds preposterous... yet plausible.
Facebook announced a redesigned layout for its pages for desktop Monday, and page administrators are receiving wait-list invites, but the new look has already been rolled out to some pages, and the feedback is both positive and negative.
Wider posts, more visibility.
