According to trade magazine Computerworld, which conducted a quick poll after its release, tech managers aren't impressed with Facebook's Home app layer. Roughly two-thirds said they don't want Facebook "or anyone else" taking over the smartphone interface.
And that's important, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova. If serious business users who gravitate to the likes of BlackBerry's (NYSE:BB) handsets eschew Home, then there's little chance of the social network seriously disrupting Google's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) mobile strategy.
