Zuckerberg Talks Future of Facebook Home at Investor’s Meeting

At an shareholder’s meeting today, Mark Zuckerberg discussed his plans for improving Facebook Home (review), including expanding the Android skin to more devices and adding an on/off button.

Facebook’s co-founder used the opportunity to admit that the first version of Facebook Home was imperfect, claiming that the best is yet to come:

“We haven’t really made our big push yet … biggest thing that we’re going to do once we feel that we’re ready is to encourage people who have the Facebook app to go turn this on from within the app. Home is the first version of Facebook that was really designed from the ground up to be a mobile product, there was no real way we were going to get everything right the first time.”

Zuckerberg also plans to update the Facebook app with a new feature that would let you jump into Facebook Home with the touch of a button, and switch back to your regular UI just as easily.

Despite a slow adoption rate for Facebook Home (just one million downloads in its first month) and the false start that was HTC First, Zuckerberg is clearly committed to achieving success with the mobile platform.
