Facebook talking to Apple and Microsoft about offering Facebook Home on their mobile platforms

It seems like the possibility of success is pretty remote, but regardless, it seems that Facebook is talking to Apple and Microsoft about offering Facebook Home on their mobile platforms. Facebook Home currently only exists on Android, which is the only platform that allows the customization to make Facebook Home possible, but Facebook wants to branch out if possible...

Who can blame Facebook for trying? But there is no way that Apple would go along with this. Although, in general, I would guess that Facebook's new app would hit Home (pun intended) with iOS users better than Android it does with users.
It's a long shot, but we'll see.

Would be interesting to know how many leave iOS for Android over something like this.

Yeah, if I was a heavy Facebook user, I could see myself switching OSs for something like this.

You personally may not like it, neither do I as it is right now, but what it does accomplish is that it gives users more options, that's all. It's hard to have too many options.

I installed Facebook Home and then instantly uninstalled, both Home and Facebook altogether. Feels great.

Not happening, at least on iOS, WP8? 50/50 in my opinion.
