Facebook v5.2 Released – Brings Tagging And New Sharing Options
We are in love with this new Facebook v5.2 app released for iDevices, and this is probably because first time ever, Facebook has introduced tagging friends functionality to its app for iOS. That’s right, you can now actually tag your friends in comments, photos or status updates right from your Facebook mobile app for iOS. The feature has been missing ever since the beginning of time, and was demanded by majority of people using iOS powered devices. Finally Facebook tends to bring down what was demanded, with the Facebook v5.2 app for iOS.
Here’s a list of other updates/changes introduced in this new Facebook app for iOS:
Now you can share the best stories from your news feed with just one tap.
• New Share link to re-post stories from your news feed
• Tag your friends in any post, comment or photo
• Smileys, hearts and other emoji in messages
• To sort your feed, tap the button next to News Feed in the left sidebar
Also, another feature being highlighted by many users is the ability to share posts and updates right from your News Feed. That’s right, you can now share your favorite posts by a single tap right on your News Feed screen.
To get the new Facebook v5.2 app, you can go to App Store on your iDevice, and look for it under the updates section in case you already have the previous version of Facebook app on your device. Other users can download it from here. [iTunes link]
