With the latest launch of Facebook Home, all smartphone users are anxious to know if their device can hold Facebook Home in future. If you own an HTC One X, the HTC One X+, Samsung’s Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II. then you are likely to get Facebook Home soon after April 12th. Facebook has even made a statement that the app will also run on the forthcoming HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 “and on more devices after few months.

All the  users who have  supported devices can install Facebook Home from Google Play. When you download it will act like a launcher. Mark Zuckerberg mentioned in the speech during the launch of Facebook Home that a  popular smartphone might only sell 10 million units in the early days of sales. But there are more Facebook users, and it is often  the most used application in a smartphone. Facebook home will be able to create a revolution in the smartphone market.

The best part about Facebook Home is that you will be able to connect with your friends and family 24×7.  Here after when you wake up, you will see your handset home screen filled with floating images and  information from your News Feed.  Chat Heads lets you message you friends when you are engaged in other activities like things like browsing or watching videos.

Device makers other than HTC or Samsung will likely support Facebook Home “out of competitive pressure,” said Patrick Moorhead an analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy.” I am sure more handset makers will come to support Home,” said Carolina Milanesi, an analyst at Gartner. “I cannot believe they would limit themselves.”

There is also  a facility that  if the users don’t like the downloaded Home app, they will be able to remove it. However it would be difficult  to remove the Home launcher from the HTC First.

You can wait for a little longer to get updates of what all smartphones will bring in their major change to their launcher.
