Facebook Home update: It looks like Facebook turned something off server side… only a black screen is showing in the app now. Killjoys! :(

It was only a little while ago that we saw the first leaked build of Facebook Home. Though many things didn’t work, it was an excellent way of previewing the software. However, it seems that time is over. That build of Facebook Home no longer works and all the feeds are now black.
It was probably Facebook shutting off something in their servers. And who can blame them? People will try out an early version of Facebook Home and get a bad impression because it’s unfinished. Then they won’t try the final product, and Facebook loses a customer they can collect data from. We’ll just wait for the final product to be released soon.
