Latest Facebook Home ad confirms your Mom's worst fears about using your phone at the dinner table

Latest Facebook Home ad confirms your Mom's worst fears about using your phone at the dinner table
Facebook Home has just produced its third television commercial which is quick work considering that the Android flavored launcher just hit the Google Play Store on April 12th. That same date, the HTC First launched exclusively on AT&T to become the first phone to have the launcher installed out of the box.

So far, the three ads include a Facebook Home user on an airplane with the Cover Feed screen showing the user in advance what he is going to see. The second ad shows Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg addressing the troops on Facebook Home's launch day only to have one executive get caught up in what his friends are doing via Cover Feed. The third ad is similar to the second one except that this time, instead of an executive at a Facebook meeting, we have a family member sitting down for dinner. The point remains the same which is that Facebook Home is the best way to stay close and connected to your friends.

Perhaps after watching this ad, you'll understand why your mom hates it when you pull out your phone at the dinner table.

Atrocious! Using a social networking site as a way of being anti-social. It looks so cool in the ad, though, as if there is nothing really wrong with peeking at your telephone at a family dinner. If she can imagine all that happening just by looking at her telephone she should be able to imagine it without her telephone. Without her telephone she might even learn how to communicate with people face-to-face and stop her relative's droning by contributing something of her own to the conversation.
