Facebook is seeking to reassure its users that its new Home application for Android phones won't affect their privacy. Critics had raised concerns over the app's potential for gathering data related to all aspects of mobile-device use, but the company says the tool will not collect information about the use of non-Facebook apps. "Home doesn't change anything related to your privacy settings on Facebook and your privacy controls will work the same with Home as they do everywhere else on Facebook," the company said.
