Facebook Home Hits A Major Download Milestone

It has been a month since the world’s largest social network released Facebook Home for Android users. The app is a hit in the Google Play store. Find out why below.

Exactly one month since its release, Facebook Home has been download 1 million times from the Google Play store.

During a press event last week,  Facebook’s director of mobile engineering told reporters that had been downloaded “just about” 1 million times. Over the weekend the app was labeled as installed 1 million – 5 million times in the Google Play Store. The million download mark is defiantly a great feat to accomplish but it seems like the app is losing its luster. According to  App Annie, a site which tracks app store rankings, Facebook Home is currently below the top 100 Android apps in every country where it’s available. Most developers would be happy just to reach the million download mark but with downloads slowing down since its release the app is moving in the wrong direction being Facebook has over 750 million active monthly users.

Facebook has yet to comment further on the download numbers of Facebook Home.
