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.

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

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

  3. Please don’t be a Facebook phone!

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

    2. It would be a bigger threat to Apple than you

      1. What does Apple have to do with this?

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

    1. Nah we can only dream :/

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

  6. 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.

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

    1. this is an interesting idea….

    2. 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.

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

  9. 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.

  10. they need worry about making a working app first

  11. Please say full games compatibility with ANDROIIIIDDDDDDD :DDDDDDD

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

  13. Where? 1 Hacker Way Menlo Park, California

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

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

  16. 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.

    1. Um, anger management issues?

  17. No one dont want too see your shitty android phone. N how bout paying your tax bill greedy assholes

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

  19. 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
