Facebook Home drops in Google Play rankings, according to new data

App analytics service, Distimo, have noted a decline since the app's release

Facebook Home has seen a drop in Google Play rankings since its release, according to new data from app analytics service Distimo.

Facebook Home was unveiled in April by Mark Zuckerberg who said that Home was designed to fundamentally redress the way that people interact with modern computing devices.

The app became avaiable for download on April 12th limited to HTC One X, HTC One X+, HTC First, Samsung Galaxy S3, and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 but has just launched on HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.

According to TechCrunch, new data from Distimo looked into the top 500 apps on Google Play which showed that its ranking was on the decline.

The firm recorded that Facebook Home was ranked highest in Luxembourg at #84, and lowest in Portugal at #477.

The app analytics service recorded data on May 8 that showed Facebook Home wasn't even in the top 500 overall apps in countries such as France, Germany, Brazil, and Argentina.

Home has seen encouraging reports as Facebook's VP of Mobile Engineering, Cory Ondrejka, announced earlier this week, Home was nearing 1 million downloads and overall engagement of Home users saw them spend 25% more time on Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg expressed his desire to launch Facebook Home on Apple's iOS last month, but acknowledged the partnership as unlikely.
