On Facebook Home ➝

Michael Mulvey’s wife when he described Facebook Home to her:

I don’t like the sound of it. Most of my friends’ lives aren’t all that exciting to me.

I don’t have Facebook myself but I’ve seen friend’s and family’s Facebook feeds when they would show me a picture or status message from it. And, I can’t imagine myself wanting any of that on my phone’s home screen.

But, what resonates with me more is Michael Mulvey’s feeling that he doesn’t expect his life to be all that exciting to his friends. I’ve had the same feeling for a while. My two main hobbies (tech and board gaming) aren’t shared interests with any of the people I’d be friends with on Facebook.
