If I am not wrong, Michael Heller is using Facebook Home as his Android launcher. ;)

I did use it for about a week before getting rid of it. I liked it, and it definitely got me more engaged with Facebook, but I'm a bit too careful about keeping unnecessary people off my Facebook friends list, and I don't "like" enough stuff to keep a constant stream of posts coming through.
I had considered shifting some of my news sources to FB to get more content, but it wouldn't really work with how I use my device.
Plus, I figured if Facebook doesn't want me to use it (with my Nexus 4 or 7), then why give them the traffic?

If you're using an EOM launcher but want a more vanilla-y experience, and your usage model is Facebook-centered, Facebook Home is a great alternative.
I've used it on my Nexus 7 for about two weeks before deciding it makes more sense in a non-nexus device.

how have you been using facebook home on your nexus 7? its not in the list of current compatible devices. If it was, then surely it would work on a nexus 10 and galaxy nexus (which it currently doesn't). Chatheads in facebook messenger is available for all devices. Are you sure ur not confusing chatheads with facebook home?
