The recently announced Facebook Home automatically shows updates on homescreen and lockscreen, presenting users with a steady flow of posts and photos upon first glance of their phone. The new development offers faster access to the essentials as well as the ability to continue speaking to friends whilst watching videos or surfing the web. Chat Heads present smartphone users with a text bubble accompanied by a photo of the person in question. People then have the option to strike up a conversation or simply swipe to ignore.
Facebook Home became available from the Android Play Store on April 12th on HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S3 and may become available on tablets at a later date.
Providing online marketing solutions to a variety of clients across all industry sectors, the team at SEO Positive count social media marketing amongst their many services. They believe that the further reaching effects for advertisers using this platform could be significant, due to the increased amount of time spent on the site by the average user. Managing Director, Ben Austin, shares his thoughts on the subject.
“With smartphone users becoming more absorbed into Facebook, on their mobile as well as desktops, the opportunities for brands to engage with their target audience are likely to increase. The move also appears as though it will be successful for Facebook itself, with the company looking to take a more dominant share of the mobile market.”
The digital marketing specialists at SEO Positive look forward to reviewing the reaction Facebook Home receives from both consumers and advertisers.
