Facebook Home will eventually have ads in the Cover Feed

It has been no secret that Facebook is looking for more ways to monetize mobile. Mark Zuckerberg said as much on the topic, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Zuck has also admitted that while Facebook Home will not contain ads at first, it will eventually show advertising in the Cover Feed...

it's a not a phone -_- it's a launcher that goes over you android device similar to a skin or a theme sort of thing

No, it's going to be able for download on the Play Store April 12th I believe; though only for a few devices at first, then support for different devices will come later

Yup, another cool thing is that I think the HTC First runs stock Android under the Facebook launcher, so if you were to uninstall that launcher (if you can), you'll have nice upper mid-ranged HTC device running stock Android 4.1.

I know that, but I think Facebook should of just made really good apps for all of the OS's instead of making Facebook Home. It's a gimmick.

*buys Facebook phone.....gets and ad of a newer (and most likely better) phone on the homescreen the whole time.* Terrible idea.

Sorry but you're 14 and you -will- be brainwashed. Brainwashed to hate facebook just because.
Some have legitimate problems or concerns with Facebook. You probably just decided to camp in the 'cool because you hate it' clique and not the 'cool because you love it' crowd.

Yea. I'll pass on Facebook home now. I prefer to give a few bucks to a smaller developer such as Nova, Apex, Action Launcher, and so on. Then have ads shoved down my throat.

I was thinking of giving the launcher a try, but not if there are ads. Why the hell would someone want ads on their phone constantly?
