A new flavor of Facebook for Android mobile application is now available for download for the owners of handsets running under Google's Android operating system, version 1.6.1, with various improvements included into the mix.
Apparently, Facebook is determined to make sure that its users benefit from fast and easy access to the social networking site even when on the go, which explains why it is keen on adding more features and enhancements to its mobile clients.
As soon as they install the new Facebook for Android 1.6.1, Android users will enjoy enhancements like:
- Improved Pages support
- View the full list of Pages you Like as well as Pages you admin
- Post as a Page you admin
- Tag Pages in status updates using "@"
- Various bug fixes
The mobile application is available for download via the Android Market from here, and can be installed on all devices that run under version 1.5 or newer of the operating system.
With Facebook for Android, users can stay connected with their friends and family over the social networking site fast and easy.
The mobile client offers access to News Feed, and allows users to chat with their friends, have a look at friends' walls, review upcoming Events, upload Photos, share links, watch videos and check messages. Basically, all the features that Facebook has to offer to them are available with the mobile app too.
We should also mention that the release of this software update for Facebook for Android comes shortly after the company released a mobile application for Java phones.
The said software was pushed out only yesterday, with support for a number of more than 2,500 phone models, Facebook announced.
Of course, Facebook's leading position on the social networking area was threatened by the availability of Google+, and it was only natural for the company to try to make its services even more appealing than before.
