Facebook gets a much needed Android update. Now supports Honeycomb. (update)

Update: If your device is running Android 2.1 and suffered problems with the Facebook for Android v1.7 update, there’s a new update to fix those issues (v.1.7.1)

We’ve been sitting on an increasingly outdated Facebook app when compared with our iPhone counterparts, but it seems that Facebook has decided to push out a decent update that brings a lot of improvements and can now be downloaded on Honeycomb tablets.

 

What did Facebook put in this update?

  • Made it easier to share with who you want
  • Improved the sharing tool to add privacy controls on posts and match your settings on the web site
  • Added the ability to tag friends and places in posts
  • Added new design for Profile and Group Walls
  • Fixes and tweaks:
  • Improved photo browsing with swiping
  • Added the ability to tag your friends in photos
  • Improved Messages and Notifications
  • Fixed a number of crashes and performance issues
  •  

    This is a great update with the biggest additions being able to tag people in photos and its support for Honeycomb tablets, although it’s just an enlarged version of the phone app.

    So jump in the Market now and download the update.

    Update: I’ve been informed that Facebook was previously available for download on some Honeycomb tablets.

    I updated the app on my Desire HD this morning and am getting force closes with anything I do apart from scroll through my feed. Sad face.
