Facebook releases 'home' software for Android phones

Facebook is releasing software that puts feeds from the social network on the home page of Android phones.

The software will act like a "wrapper" for the Android operating system and become the main way to use a phone.

Notifications, images and messages will appear on the main screen of the phone instead of being accessible via a downloadable app.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said the change would put people, not apps, at the heart of the mobile experience.
