How to Download and Install Facebook Home on Any Android Phone or Tablet?

Last Friday Facebook has launched its new and immersive app Facebook Home , which is officially available only on Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, HTC One, HTC One X and HTC One X+ and only in USA.

The new app Facebook Home is designed to replace your home screen that makes your social networking connections the star of your phone. The app can conveniently display your Facebook news feed with scrolling images and quick access to Facebook Messenger and app drawer. But the cons are no widget support, wallpaper cannot be changed and the app consumes high Internet data and memory.
