Facebook irks users

Facebook has launched a update for Android.  This is actually not an update but a app built from scratch using SDK.

Facebook has given native codes instead of HTML5 webview codes for faster user interface.

As per Facebooks SDK Engineer Phillip Fung:

"It's twice as fast when looking at photos and opening up your Timeline, and noticeably quicker to launch."

The changes which users will notice are:

  • Your timeline will load faster
  • Your newsfeed will roll out faster
  • Photo's will open on a tap so you can post your likes and comments
  • The Stories bar refreshes itself

Get new  Facebook  from the Google Play store now

iOS users fret not for Facebook has released an update for them also.  The iOS Facebook update has much awaited 'Share' buttons that allows users to share their posts.

iOS users download the app from the App Store

This new strategy is the part of Facebooks  'Mobile First' policy, given the low cash flows it has from mobile telephone market. Therein a bid to fast peddle its approach it is releasing good updates, which will ultimately help us, users.

Nice but too bad that Facebook is still ignoring the Tablets. The phone optimized version is just not appropriated for tablets!
