    Would you enjoy using a Facebook phone?

    What could a FB phone offer you that other types would not? Would you feel that your information and activities are secure?

    I don't think I'd like it - I'm not big on FB to begin with, so that's why... Too superficial/shallow. If it's anything like FB I'll pass.

      I am in agreement. I've come across quite a bit of chatter through a couple of friends and then today I heard about it again on CNBC. I'm just wondering what they could offer that's substantially different and fulfills real needs of users.

    I have trouble just using the Facebook app, so why would I use one of their phones?

      I'm sure they'd say you should use it because of the ability to share, share, share. Perhaps they believe they'll be able to take a bite out of mobile sales and service with so many dedicated users?

      There is a point when you share too much...

      I fully agree. Ugh, don't even get me started on the idiots that post exact dates of vacations, offensive sayings or photos then whine about being robbed, losing their jobs or earning less than pleasant nicknames as a result of their actions.

      I have not heard anyone complain about it. But that is why I have two facebook accounts.

      You're smarter than that. An acquaintance had their home robbed after posting exact dates of their family vacation to Disney World and I know a woman that whines about being called names for sending salacious FB messages to a married man.

      Now those are just sad. They don't have any security on their accounts.

    No, I would use an app or access the site from a web browser. I do remember seeing these phones that had a dedicated Facebook button, along with physical QWERTY keypad for messaging.

      The phone that you describe leaves a lot to be desired and as you said, many people use apps or a browser.

    This sounds futuristic, sure I would if I get paid to try it out first

      I kept hearing about FB coming out with a phone. Today it was announced that FB want to be the home screen of your phone. As for pay to try offers...stay away from them because they are scams.
