At the same time clarify what: I love Facebook! It is for me the most important addition to Google+ social network and for my work is of fundamental importance. Without having accurate data but I can assume that I spend an hour a day on Facebook on average. Exchange, the ego likes to caress the uploaded pictures (sorry that I just time pronouncing what you all know anyway) and get current information of my very personal “friends” who is so internationally, as this network.

Without Facebook, I would have probably not get a attention in the media world in recent years, because frequently the first contacts and inquiries were made about this network.

So I can really only thanks to Facebook, right?

So now Facebook Home, which among other things by Sascha Lobo in his Mirror column is presented as a revolution in the social phone and on a par with the first iPhone and the market penetration of Android is pushed.

Apart from the fact that Sasha’s treatises like the ultimate bingo advisor speech read (“the network breathes social”), he will also play dice equal times pretty much confused what is produced in the last years of smartphone evolution. According Lobos the home screens of the current phones and tablets are the most common being unterschaetzte feature of the mobile genre, and then calls right afterwards that Apple sets the standard with the iPhone here, whereas the customizable Android home screens are just a Nerdveranstaltung.

Let’s now time ago outside that Sasha the difference between start and lockscreen obviously does not know, but if iOS sets the standard for a home screen (the innovative static grid of icons with rounded corners), then I can at least understand to some extent why he Home of Facebook is so excited.

I still do not have to share his opinion, so I partly believe it for a collection of Stupid surge to be occupied by another banalare and completely absurd statements.

Mobile operating systems (with the exception of “Lobo standards” iOS) have adapted in recent years to the individual needs of users and other features that always indulged in order to enable us a very personal arena smartphone experience. Lockscreens home screens to be first information streams, equipped with matching widgets and Tiles and our Notificationbars so bored that you can control almost all interactions of these out, without being forced to even begin looking for the right app.

Android, Windows Phone, as well as the standards set here, while the benchmark Lobo Apple with its iOS static to generations back.

As individual as the requirements of the user, so individual can be smart surfaces, lockscreens and homescreens to customize and no, the average smartphone user packs not only a quick picture of his two daughters as wallpaper on his chest! In 2013, consumers are much more than technophile Sascha believes and no, it is not Nerdveranstaltung when a user’s personalized home screen with widgets and tiles. This is almost the standard!

So Facebook is now home to make “all things new” and join us on our journey to the “hyper-self.” Ahja ….

Turned on phone and voila, there appeared in close-up on the Huehnerarsch fried on skewers, which you can never get in Germany now look at 7 clock with an empty stomach because you are following the Pallenberg and has just photographed delicious lunch in Taiwan.

Or are you following with Janet Hsieh , a Taiwanese TV star and see during a performance of Home on Facebook Droidcon only long legs in red patent leather boots. Mind you in front of 200 people who wanted to learn from you niggly, why home generates as much buzz.

Or you have the new nerd in a fit of mental derangement Kai Diekmann promised your followers and experiencing now, in what movies the quay so with Facebook departs.

Facebook Home is a smartphone OS hijackers, a liana, which wants all the developments of the last years marks the air. Powered smartphone and you already receives a slide show with commentary and Like feature, which is purely technical innovation just above the level of digital picture frames.

Forget all of the weather, calendar, music, news widgets. All what you have won and your smartphone quite personally, is no longer important. Facebook now tells you where to go! You going to establish the illusion that you whatâ influence the social stream the largest social network. Facebook and its filtering algorithms know what is good for you and receive you with open arms. Filter in the bubble of the vanities

There are studies that come to the conclusion that we see more than 200 times a day on our smartphone. Lobo itself leads in his article that amerikanischee teen Maedels month send more than 4000 SMS, without pointing out that this study is from the year 2011 . A time before Whatsapp (alone about this service can be more than 10 billion messages per day sent), line, Facebook Messenger and Co., in the feature phones still had a market share of over 60% and Nokia was well over 20% .

No dear Sasha, which for years have been using no SMS service over chat spare! Hundreds of millions of downloads of the most popular messenger services in combination with the landslide slumps in sales execution with the telcos in messaging speak a completely different language here. Probably one reason why you knowing waived sources.

Simple works as the club Google:

Facebook Home, the smartphone has reached the next stage of development: it is the social phone. This can also be seen in Google’s despair, in addition to the Android mobile operating system to spasm and by all means set up your own Social Network: That’s the key to the mobile Internet.

Nevermind that the Mountain Viewer seek anything but a fragmentation between Android and Google+. Time left unnoticed that Google+ is the future and more central platforms of all services of the search engines monopolists and serves as the spearhead of the “Age of context”. Yes you have got it right at least to provide the fastest growing network on the legs, which receives in Germany apparently much stronger than the inlet filter bubble and the pats on the digital stream Boheme aka Twitter.

The strategy behind Facebook Home is neither groundbreaking nor revolutioniaer (plus it even looks like a weekend hack), it is like a step back into the age of FeaturePhone way street. Add to this the fact that Facebook has probably ausgewuerfelt the results of the analysis of the usage behavior of smartphone users. Because, unfortunately, the reality looks a bit different:

A service that pre-filtered information hit me exclusively at the screen.

A network that its Legal Terms and Policies has now drilled so that you can better min. Must take 2 semesters of law behind it, to be able to look through there. This service is now to jump on my smartphone and I each brightening of the display in the face?

Where are the concerns Lobos, the last year he was still in his column ” Facebook collides with the Basic Law “voiced? Seems as had been snatched away by the innovative power of an Android launcher this.

Facebook yes, but when I want it and most of all when I want it. Facebook Home on my smartphone? Most certainly not, but that is expected at the American Idol generation, which the social network lately increasingly turned his Ruecken are probably viewed differently.

We can only hope the OEMs that they will not all are as desperate as HTC and Home not preinstalled on their platforms.
