From web updates to mobile app enhancement and new feature rollouts, Facebook has been busy, coming up with an update every few weeks. The latest enhancement is a Home update that integrates Tumblr, Instagram, and other social media on the lock screen.

Apparently a move to bring together various social media websites, Facebook seems to want to keep an eye on its competition, with a common lock screen rollout that brings these platforms together. The new feature has been available to Facebook's Android app beta testers for about a few weeks now. As of today, all Android users can access the latest update to the company's OS-overhauling Home app. This is a big rollout with a number of new options being integrated into the lock screen, including social networks and media like Pintrest, Flickr, Tumblr, and Instagram.

Once the networks have been added, they are authenticated with user IDs and passwords. After the authentication is complete, one can start browsing posts from the Lock Screen without having to access the dedicated app. This is very convenient for social media buffs on a number of different platforms, as it eliminates the need to open up individual dedicated apps.

The Android app from Facebook has seen a lot of new features and rollouts over the last few months, improving and enhancing social media experience through smartphones and tablets. While there are rumors that Facebook has lost its fizz, there is no indication that the world's largest network is phased in the slightest as it continues to grow, expand, and add more functionality to the network. The current lock screen integration feature is one among a series of updates planned to enhance the consumer's experience on mobile devices. Android users can expect a lot more from Facebook while enjoying the current Lock Screen social media integration feature.
