Here is what Facebook explains on what Facebook Home is on their Help Center page

Facebook Home is software for your phone designed to put your friends above everything else. You can download Facebook Home for free or purchase it pre-installed on a phone. Facebook Home works together with the Facebook for Android and Facebook Messenger apps to enable its main features:

  • Cover feed: Glance at your phone for photos and posts from your Facebook News Feed.
  • Chat heads: Send and receive texts and Facebook messages in one place. Open, close and drag chat heads around your screen to keep chatting while you’re using other apps.
  • Notifications: See news as it happens with bigger, bolder notifications on your home screen.
  • App launcher: Get right to your favorite apps and post to Facebook from the same place.

How will this turn out depends on the users. Would the users be overwhelmed to have this or make it a fad? We need to wait for social media fanatics' response.

Facebook has grabbed an opportunity right from their competitors where Google missed the opportunity to market Google+ via Android!
