facebook logoFacebook for iOS Gets Update

The October 17, 2013 update for Facebook's Mobile application for iOS devices (iPhone/iPad) received a welcome upgrade.

There are a number of cool features that those with iOS devices have been waiting for for a long time. included in these include:

  1. The ability to edit your posts (tap to see all your changes on the iPhone only)
  2. Add a Photo-Comment
  3. Express yourself with icons.
  4. You can get to your privacy settings by tapping the lock

 Let's have a closer look at the ability to edit.

Let's say that I posted the following, and later realized that I had make a typo.  I could tap on the down arrow,


Select "Edit Post" from the context menu.


Select "Edit Post"

And can now make the necessary edits.


Edit your message, and click "SAVE"

Tapping "Save" when complete.

Adding a Photo Comment from iOS

You approach this type of comment like you would any other.  Click on the status update you want to comment on, and click the camera icon. Allowing you to select from your images.

You can also provide a "What Are You Doing?" expression to your comments/posts.

So, what do you think of these changes? I for one have been waiting since Facebook came to iOS for the ability to edit.  How will these changes impact your activity on Facebook Mobile?
