Revolutionary Social App Interfaces

Although excited tech enthusiasts anticipated Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to announce the release of a Facebook phone, the social network visionary instead unveiled the new, game changing Facebook Home user interface that sees Facebook switching the focus of the average Android phone design from functionality to friendship.

The new Facebook Home UI will operate as a new age app suite styled specifically for Android phones. Featuring pop-up user faces, messaging systems that behave more like group chats and a specialized Facebook algorithm to monitor all this for you, it’s clear that Facebook Home is determined to put “the people first and then the apps.”

Facebook has had a turbulent relationship with Google, designers of the Android platform, and so this collaboration between these social networking giants is a lucrative and surprisingly amicable development. Zuckerberg also noted that soon “the idea of a modern computer won’t be around,” an eerie yet plausible observation that causes one to consider the growing importance of smart phones and the vision of UIs like Facebook Home.
