How to get your status bar back full time with Facebook Home


There’s no question that Facebook Home puts Facebook front and center on your phone. I guess that can be a good thing for those that love Facebook, but one thing that you might be missing is your status bar. You know that little bar at the top of your phone that shows you the time, your signal, how much battery life is left, and what notifications you have? Hopefully you didn’t forget about it already.

Facebook by default turns that off because they want you to only care about people and nothing else. You can still get to it with a swipe down at the top, and for some of you that might be okay, but it’s an easy fix if you would like to get your status bar back full time again. Just go into settings for Facebook Home and make sure that “Show Status Bar” is checked. Hit the break for a quick video showing you how it’s done.
