Facebook beta brings Flickr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr to 'Home' experience

Facebook on Thursday announced that Facebook for Android Beta testers will be able to check out posts and photos and posts from Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram on their Home lock screen. Pretty sweet stuff, especially for those who like to dabble in multiple social networks.

To turn on additional services, you’ll need to select the app from the Home settings menu and log in with your credentials. You can easily like and view posts, or click on the “view on” link to go directly to the site.

We might look for this to roll out to the official Facebook app experience in the next release(s) for Android. Are there any other social media plugins you’d like to see? Twitter and Google+ come to mind immediately, however there are others out there. What would you like to have on the Facebook Home UI or is there no way of convincing you to use it?
