Facebook revealing “New Home on Android” this Thursday, April 4th

We’ve just received an invite to a Facebook event on April 4th that says “Come See Our New Home on Android”. What exactly does Facebook’s “New Home on Android” mean? We’ve got no clue, but we’ll find out in due time:

Could it be a new app? Could it be a Facebook phone? We don’t really know, but according to Mercury News, Facebook means “Home” quite literally: they’ve gained permission to build a second campus near their current headquarters that should house Android app development among other initiatives.

Exactly why Facebook would host a press event to show off their new building, I’m not exactly sure. It has me wondering if there are perhaps other announcements coinciding with this new home. I could venture a guess, but either way, we’ll be on site to see whatever Android goodness Zuck and his team are bringing to our favorite mobile platform.

    • scoter man1

      I’ve come to the realization that that will probably never happen.

    • ari_free

      They’d make a whole press event just for an app update?

  • OptimusL

    Please don’t be a Facebook phone!

    • Big_EZ

      I bet that’s what it is, there was a rumor of a new one coming.

    • ari_free

      It would be a bigger threat to Apple than you

      • OptimusL

        What does Apple have to do with this?

    Maybe it’ll be a holo-ified Facebook app that gives the Google+ app a run for its money? Naw… xD

    • OptimusL

      Nah we can only dream :/

  • Tarun

    You could have used color picker to white out the event details…! :P

  • Cory Skelton

    If they release a Facebook phone and any of my loved ones buy it I’m gonna rip it out of their hands and throw it as far as I can.

    Hopefully it’s an awesome new app or something.

  • Aaron soles

    Perhaps it’s a home replacement app with live Facebook tiles for all your friends and messages?

    • ryan rochford

      this is an interesting idea….

    • jeremyseattle

      Yeah, it’s sounding like this is the plan – hence the “new home” wording. They will be starting with integration with HTCSense, possibly more manufacturers to come.

  • TechGuy22

    better app or GTFO. probably some google plus integration ? that would be weird lol

    I can’t be the only person in the world that rarely has problems with their Facebook app. I mean sure I experience a few bugs here and there, but nothing I don’t get from other apps as well.

  • TheHowiie

    they need worry about making a working app first

  • Samuel Serafim

    Please say full games compatibility with ANDROIIIIDDDDDDD :DDDDDDD

  • bob

    I’m going mire literal with my prediction. I think this event will also unveil a slew of FTC filings.

    Can’t be a new building right?
    That wouldn’t be a home ON android. It would be home FOR android #fliesaway

    Hopefully this means a Facebook for Android tablets, I mean there’s a Facebook for iPads so why not?

  • Runesai

    Maybe they will make an app that works. My S2 will go all day on one charge, add the Facebook app, down to 2 hrs.

    • izzyt

      Um, anger management issues?

  • InspectorGadget80

  • Eion

    The current Facebook app works fine for me. Although I only use it once every 3-4days.

  • Jon Brashear
  • Christopher Robert

    Maybe its an Android Home Screen Launcher that makes everything facebook-ified.. Doubt it is anything worth noting though facebook just likes to see its name in the news
