    I disagree completely.

    Come on, quantify your disagreement. It is irrelevant without a reason.

    I did say it was a bit harsh but there is so much more I do, and so much more that can be done with any phone that can run FB home that FB has to be a highly significant part of a person's communication repertoire for them to be happy with it totally replacing the launcher, lock screen and many basic front end things that they have become accustomed to.

    I highly doubt that but I'll play along.


    You statement implies that anyone who actually wants FB home isn't too bright.
    These forums as a starting point are filled with some brilliant minds who for whatever reason want FB home and don't think computers are just for FB.
    Let's take it one step further and throw a FB widget into the mix....are the people who use those also shortsighted?

    I have plenty of days when all I do is FB and nothing else--I don't see that ruling my life and it doesn't make me want FB home.
    I've said in other threads--hell no, no way would I want the same blurry pics I see on FB on my phone.

    And yes, you did say it was a "bit harsh" but I could do this all night. ;)
    Lumping people into classifications and categories is what makes us shortsighted.

    I would say that FB home is for very avid FB users. It made me feel like I had an iphone again in a sense.

    ^^^--- Look, I'm quoting myself. LOL :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I answered my own question regarding Chat Heads. I installed just the FB Messenger app and it has settings option to enable it for SMS/MMS also. :D

    Very simply layout and no widgets, also not able to customize much. Just seemed very basic for me.

    Installed, played for an hour, noted how often I had to access several applications, deleted it. Social is not that necessary for me.
