I've googled and asked Facebook but no one seems to know. Someone said it might be the new items on your newsfeed, but that's not it.

Anyone have a clue?

My best guess is that it indicates the number of comments/replies related to news posted by you.
Did you click on it to see?

Well after I click on it, the number goes away with no explanation as to what the number meant. I rarely post anything as I don't share a lot. The number will be 12 one time and 18 the next and I haven't shared anything. So not sure what it means.

As far ad I can tell it doesn't mean anything. I think it's another "Let's **** off our users and calibrate the result." test because there is no relationship between the number and anything I find.

I ignore it.

I think it's supposed to reflect that numbers of posts that have been made or commented on by people on your friends list since you last updated the page.

But it doesn't do that. I can have a number there, check the page, and there are no changes or additions.

It's similar to the reputation notification on City Data. There might be a number there, but it doesn't man there's a new rep.

I believe it represents updates to the news feed since you last visited. The thing is, Facebook's news feed can be kind of buggy. At times I can refresh the page and any new posts that were there, disappear.

And I think it counts weird. I had 18 there today, but the was only one addition, but it was of 9 pictures in a friends album.

I am checking my FB since this thread was created, and I never saw any numbers next to the "home" icon.
The only numbers I see are next to people, chat and news feed icons (the Globe)
