Disappointing Google Play Numbers for Facebook Home

Just 500,000 downloads in the first week


A little over a week after being released, Facebook's new interface for Android smartphones, Facebook Home, has crossed the 500,000 mark for downloads on Google Play.

The interface, installed the same way as smartphone apps, gives users' home screens a new look that focuses on their Facebook friends rather than their apps. Facebook Home removes users' lock and menu screens and replaces them with status updates and photos posted by their friends.
