FB Home: how to inhabit our habitele


What if Facebook red our habitele hypothesis and designed "Home" along our insights? Our survey (by the way, it is almost over now in the 7 countries) demonstrates the importance of the customization of phones home pagse. Our survey was also designed for assessing the role of the phonebooks and of contacts on personal activity (and not for tracking applications use, because we are more connected through social navigation than anything else). These 2 features are exactly the ones implemented on Facebook Home. The name itself (Home) could be a good start for understanding how we inhabit our phones.  This is why habitele framework leads the way for new innovations and not only for academic purposes. But there are many other findings that Facebook did not considered!! Stay tune! Our international conference in Paris in May will give more fuel to these insights!
