I still cannot imagine people wanting a phone which is primarily Facebook orientated. I like my friends, but not that much.

Besides they don't post beautiful pictures of stunning landscapes or brilliant weather. They post pictures of their food, kids, stupid modded cars and drunken nights out.

Like I want that on my phone the instant I unlock the screen.

Facebook is just a app; facebook home is taking it a bit too far...Google nexus is better which offers all Google android products.

Like Bonovox said, WP does it better and more beautifully.

Going back to my point, these companies sell us these products by showing us how brilliant life is with them. I don't live in LA, Florida or Australia. Where i live the weather is miserable most of the time, people don't smile, we don't hang out round a gorgeous lake wearing straw hats and colourful clothing, drinking and being merry with a picnic or BBQ.

They need to be more realistic for us in the UK at least, show pictures of our misery. Something like this:

I hate facebook and etaab is right,. im sick of spam, photos of babies, their food, drunk nights, crap iphone panoramics, instagram and people just whinging about their shit boring lives! When I joined facebook in 2007 it felt exclusive and sharing photos was great now, its just pathetic and ideally that's why i love esato, nothing has changed, great format and interesting people. Esato please dont turn into another social website, stick to your successful format!!!

As for your comment about sad poms, sorry an Aussie n nz saying, it's the same here in nz, although they are so bloody obsessed with Apple, like the US! We are finally catching up with Europe with releases but pay over the nose for tech. I import my tech from Asia as it's. just easier for updates and saving money!

There are some people on Facebook i removed cos they drove me insane. They would put pointless drivel like,having a nice cup of coffee whilst waiting for the hubby to come home. Or hey i am doing the washing whoopie. As i said i am only on it to stay in touch with overseas family and friends

Im not Mr Popular, never have been because I don't follow the crowd or been easily led by friends, but a year ago I had about 150 genuine family and friends who I knew personally. Then I deleted about 100 of them which took me down to just over 50 friends.

Now whilst id say hello to them in the street, I wouldn't want them on Facebook. Im not bothered about keeping in touch with them now I don't work with them or socialise with them anymore. Or the fact I don't text or call them anymore. I don't want them seeing my pictures either. In fact, I recently deleted 1,400 pictures I had on there. Now I have about 400 and they'll probably go also.

I also don't like the fact people can download my pictures too. I upload pictures to Facebook but let them resize them into a lower resolution so people don't want use them.

Facebook is also incredibly slow and bloated, which gives me less confidence in why they're in business at all.

I have noticed even on my pc and especially Face Book apps how slow FB is at loading. And i do wish many people on Face Book would talk proper English. Get sick of all this text speak even some of my Irish cousins do it. Instead of saying SAID they say SED. I often have to re read their posts or read slowly. I am on da bus
