The official Facebook for Windows Phone app has been updated today with several improvements and fixes for the social network app. The update, version 188.8.131.52 for those keeping score at home, brings improvements to almost every area of the app which should create a better, more consistent user experience.
The list of things that are addressed in the update is pretty impressive and includes:
- Top Stories news feed improvements and improved News Feed ranking
- Improved Most Recent News Feed
- Improved New Feed content
- Improved Profile Timeline
- Improved Group feed
- Improved Group Feed
- Improved Page Feed
- Fixes for People Hub content
Performance wise the app it is the same as the previous build so don’t expect any great improvements from that perspective.
The Facebook app is free and available in the Windows Phone Store. As you would expect, a Facebook account is required to use the app. This update is a really nice improvement over the previous build and you should pick it up if you are check the social app from your phone. In my testing, it runs much smoother and is far less “clunky” feeling than the previous release.
