Facebook's fanfare is 'not a game changer'

Is it a game changer for Facebook? Almost certainly not. I suspect it will appeal to the die hard FB addicts but do consumers really want FB content to take over their whole phone?

What about all the other live feeds already available on your phone? What about all the other things you care about outside of FB connections?
