SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS: Facebook Home surpasses 500,000 downloads

Facebook’s Home app for Android has surpassed the 500,000 download mark on the Google Play store after just over a week, according to The Next Web.

Despite the barrage of negative press and an average rating of 2.2 the app continues to accumulate downloads.

Facebook launched the software in the US on April 12 before rolling it out to international users on April 16th.

Five hundred-thousand downloads may be viewed as a slow start for Facebook, which has over a billion users registered to the social networking site. However, this could be because the app is only available on Android devices. The main Facebook app on Android has between 100 million and 500 million downloads.
