Mark Zuckerberg stars in new Facebook Home ad

Mark Zuckerberg stars in new Facebook Home ad
Mark Zuckerberg makes an appearance in the latest ad for Facebook Home. The Android flavored launcher is now available in the Google Play Store and comes pre-installed on the AT&T exclusive HTC First. The real stars of the spot are the CGIs which are used to demonstrate how close you are to your friend's activities when you track them using Cover Feed from Facebook Home.

Meanwhile, the Facebook Home app, which got off to a poor start, now has a 2.4 star rating although the number of those giving it one star is about 2.5 times the number that rank it the top 5 stars. While the app is limited to the HTC One X, the Samsung GALAXY Note II and the Samsung Galaxy S III, it will also work with the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 once those two top-shelf models are released.

As the ad shows, if you love Facebook, Facebook Home is going to make the experience of tracking your friends feel larger than life.  And yes, there are certainly enough Facebook users out there to make this a worthwhile project. For the rest of those Androids users who really aren't into Facebook or don't care what their pals are up to, the regular Facebook app is enough to take care of their needs.

You are right, SOMEBODY needs to use it. There is a difference between registered users and people who are actually using G+, and that chasm makes the Grand Canyon look like a pothole.
