Facebook Home update brings Tumblr, Instagram and more to Android...

Facebook Home gets new update, adds Flickr, Tumblr, Instagram integration for all Home users.

The Home launcher can be found in the Play Store and is currently sitting at version 1.1. This lockscreen replacement runs on Android 4.0 or later and still supports only a limited number of devices including Samsung Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, HTC First, HTC One X, One X , HTC One and Nexus 4 smartphone.

Users can now view content from these four additional social networks on their lockscreen. On you install the Home app users will be given an option to choose which networks they want to display. After the initial setup has been done you can always add/remove any by tapping the Home icon on your homescreen and looking for the “More settings” option.

Here’s the full Facebook Home version 1.1 change log:

• Use the Home app as your lock screen and app launcher or just as your lock screen
• It brings an updated app launcher.
• Users can see photos and posts from Flickr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr all on your lock screen.

Once installing the new version of Facebook on Android, users can select the apps from which they wish to pull the content from. After authenticating the accounts, posts from Pinterest, Tumblr, Flickr, and Instagram will start being pulled in to the Home screen. Like with other Home screen content, users can Like and view posts without opening any apps.

Facebook has rolled out a new update last month for Facebook Home that adds music controls and animated stickers that can wave, wiggle or dance to your locked Home screen. The update gives users updates and notifications from Facebook friends and users can also play music or switch tracks, from their lock screens.
