MENLO PARK, Calif. – With its new “Home” on Android gadgets, Facebook aims to make its social network the hub of people’s mobile experiences. The question, now, is whether people want all their Facebook content greeting them every time they look at their phones.

If users download Facebook’s Home software starting on April 12, Facebook will become the center of their Android smartphones. Switch on your phone and you’ll see friends’ photos, overlaid by status updates, links and eventually, advertisements. If a friend sends you a message, their Facebook photo will pop up as a notification. Full story.

Do you check social media sites or email from your phone?
