Facebook ad reminds you that Facebook Home can be turned off if you want to be alone

A post on the Facebook Mobile Page, which some received as a mobile ad, reminded those who have installed the Facebook Home launcher, or who are considering it, that it can be deactivated allowing users to return to their widgets; deactivating the launcher also gives the user some quiet down time without having his or her phone constantly interrupted by Cover Feed...

Maybe they should be reminded that Facebook Home is redundant if it's to be turned off 'permanently'.

That is so not true. It can deactivated on the First also.

Deactivating is not the same as uninstalling.

I hear ya, but once you deactivate it, you don't have to see it ever & you essentially have a stock Android device.

It's never a good sign when an ad is telling you that you don't have to use the service.

I do hope this is the first step in OEM custom UI's being able to be uninstalled. I have used a custom launcher since 2010......so I rarely see the orig home screen setup. I can deal with the UI throughout the rest of the phone...but the launcher just never seems to be what I like.
Sense UI is the exception....I hate Sense UI everywhere. I do like Blur or whatever Motorola is calling it these days.....but I still dont use the launcher. Never used Touchwiz....cant really comment on it...but I just like what it looks like vs Sense UI.

no one wants FB HOME thats why the phone is only 99 cents

I really hope they release the HTC First network unlocked in the UK.
Though I would not use Facebook Home, it has good specs for a mid ranger, compact size and pure Android. Mmmm....
