Will Facebook be your new 'Home'?

Facebook has launched a new and intuitive interface called Home for Android phones. It integrates your Facebook experience as a seamless application in your Android phone. What this means for us? This launcher connects you instantly to the activities of your friends and social network without having to switch applications. It allows you to see your friend's new pictures or chat messages right away on your phone the moment it is posted. However, if you choose to download and use the Facebook Home launcher, this will disable all your Android notifications such as email, SMS/MMS, Google Play, events, and other app notifications. But if like being instantly connected, the perhaps you should give Facebook Home a try. Unfortunately, this is unavailable for iPhone users like myself, but I would probably give it a try in the future just for fun. Will you?
