Facebook 1.7 Adds Number of Improvements, Honeycomb Support

The official Facebook application saw an update last night which brings a number of new features and improvements.  First up, the new version (1.7) now works on Android tablets running Honeycomb although it’s not necessarily optimized for the experience.  Users will find some of the changes (pull to refresh, easier sharing) are more obvious than others, however we’re digging the overall progress.

Facebook 1.7 features include:

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

    I wish it included a split screen for tablets similar to USA Today. At least it did not appear when I put it on my tablet.
