Facebook Home is About to be Evicted

It looks like Facebook Home hasn’t found its forever home. At least, not with AT&T. After only one month, the service provider is rumored to be looking to ditch the HTC First smartphone. If you’ll remember, HTC First is the model debuted as having Facebook Home fully integrated into its operating system.

If Facebook Home had launched a couple of years ago, it really might have been lauded as the most amazing thing ever. Between 2008 and 2010, it seemed like everyone had Facebook fever. Back then, our fanatical usage of the social media site really did look like the Facebook Home commercials show.

Too bad this is now.

Of course, AT&T getting rid of the HTC First is just a rumor, and neither company has attributed poor sales performances to Facebook Home. But really, it isn’t much of a stretch to assume it’s all related. After all, the reviews of Facebook Home have been pretty terrible.

Maybe Facebook was too late in its attempt to become our constant companion. Sure, we all still use it, but we’re not in love with it like we once were. But if Facebook is looking to rekindle the old flame with its users, Facebook Home apparently isn’t the way to go about it.
