Facebook Home Lock Screen To Welcome Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram

Facebook’s Home Android overlay is about to get a lot more crowded, as Engineering Manager Tom Alison announced in a Newsroom post that content from Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Instagram will be added to the Home lock screen for the social network’s Android beta-testers.

In order to launch this new feature, Facebook’s Android beta-testers must select the respective applications from the Home settings menu and login with Facebook.

The social network said it expects to roll this new feature out more widely after launching it with the beta-testers.

A Facebook spokesperson added in an email to AllFacebook:

We are committed to making Home the best experience for our users, and we are bringing the things they care most about to their lock screen.
