Facebook Home hits 500,000 downloads with average Google Play reviews

Facebook Home hits 500,000 downloads with average Google Play reviews

Twitter and Google Play store were the sites where this vital information first got leaked out. The high tech hack, Benedict Evans gave away the details 500k downloads of Facebook Home on Google Play upto this Sunady. As soon as he released the tweet, the whole Net was buzzing with the contents of this case of overload. It was a sign of genuine progress for Facebook. There are voices of dissent among the crowd of cheerleaders. Evans posted a tweet on its Twitter account according to which 500,000 users downloads Facebook Home on Google Play in just 9 days. But it was a measly 0.05% of Facebook users.
 
According to Forbes , there might be a reason behind these statistics. Facebook Home is only sought on a limited range of devices. Among these are the Samsung Galaxy Series as well as two of the HTC models. Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg is smiling as usual. It’s definitely a winning streak for Facebook’s marketing team. An aggressive advertising campaign took care of the details. The network with its millions and millions of connections has hit the jackpot for now.

Undoubtedly, other giants of commercial endeavor such as Angry Birds and Instagram’s Android Newcomer have surpassed Facebook’s goal by a wide margin. Yet Facebook is in the middle of it all. It does not lack punch when it comes to mental toughness and entrepreneurship. There have been complaints about the app but then there will always be nitpickers.

The next goal is to make it to the millionth milestone. Facebook is halfway there and it has exactly halfway to go.  Expanding into foreign territory, where the Facebook Home Android will accumulate diminishing returns, is not as profitable as settling the score on its own home turf (no pun intended).

Facebook Home made its first debut in early April. And although the reviews were lukewarm, the large base that the gargantuan networking site has as a birthright obviously sets it up for success. The youthful Mark Zuckerberg is jubilant at the results. Facebook has connected so many people to their friends, family members and significant others. If there is a site that was made for finding anyone you knew once upon a time in high school and wanted to know now, Facebook is it.

Though there has been some negative reviews seen on Google Play such as the oft-quotes remark “Facebook is a site that is a paradise for stalkers” yet most of the people you meet on the fun-filled azure blue webpage are happy-go-lucky people who are laid back and not the psychos who end up trolling on chat rooms. This is a sign that the times will see Mark Zuckerberg’s social network progress by leaps and bounds till it makes it to the finish line way ahead of the others.
