Facebook Messenger for iPhone and Android was released a couple of days back which is a standalone app for messaging to your Facebook friends and mobile contacts.
The app was released for iPhone and Android first, but according to the Help pages on Facebook, Facebook Messenger will soon be making its way to BlackBerry devices as well.
Facebook has just launched their Facebook Messenger for Mobile, a standalone messaging app for smartphones. According to Mashable, Facebook will be rolling out several new features to its Facebook Chat feature.
Now you can send messages directly to your friends on their mobile phones, so you stay in touch no matter where you go. Message friends using Facebook Messenger for Mobile or anyone in your mobile contacts. This looks more of an approach like WhatsApp, BlackBerry Messenger etc.
Facebook just launched the long-rumoured video calling in-collaboration with Skype. They have also announced group chat and a few other improvements to Messages.
The video call feature will roll out to users in a few weeks. You can still try out the video call feature – only if you would like to try.
Facebook has very annoying apps which tags friends in photos and shows up on your wall. You can of course completely disable tagging in photos/videos, but there should be another easier way to get rid of these photos.
Now you can “Remove post and untag…” yourself from a photo on Facebook. When you get tagged in a photo, you can remove yourself from it without having to open the photo itself.
Facebook has released a new update to its official Facebook Android app, v1.5.3. It brings a number of bug fixes, and features that users have been requesting for.
You can now tag friends in your status update, add your phone number in profile and find friends.
Facebook introduced a new feature a while ago making it easier to post comments on wallpost, photo, status or any other activity. This even allows you to edit your comment on Facebook without having to delete the entire comment.
Usually when you had to edit comments, what did you do? Copied the text, delete the comment and again type it down with the correction you wanted to make. Oh well, this is not needed anymore.
Facebook for Android has been updated to v1.5.2 which brings a number of bug fixes and improvements that users had been waiting for long.
The new updated Facebook Android app brings the ability to upload photos to a friend’s wall, upload photos to groups etc.
I just wrote on how to get the old Facebook photo viewer back, but that was not a permanent solution to fix it. You would have to do it every time you open a new photo album.
Like I mentioned, it wouldn’t take long for a developer to come out with an add-on or script for Greasemonkey that fixes this – permanently for now. A little Googling helped me find the perfect, permanent solution.
Facebook recently rolled out the new photo viewer “Theater Mode” for all the users, and like ever design change this has been annoying most of the users while some others like it.
The new photo viewer in my view is really bad and the previous one was a lot better, with a cleaner look. This new ‘theater’ look is no better.
