Facebook has updated its application for iOS bringing the much hyped Timeline feature, which revamps the overall look of the users’ profile in an innovative way. However, the Timeline feature will be available for iPhone and iPod Touch for the time being. The Timeline support for iPad is expected to arrive soon.
Initially launched for the web version, the Timeline feature is already available for Android and mobile version of the social network as well.
Besides, the updated Facebook app on iOS now has friends list, better photo management, and subscriptions support. In the friends list, the Facebook friends would be separated in different groups, which means users can manage their friends’ groups better.
The updated app also enables easier and faster access to photos; it’s also easier to upload photos and post comments. Users who have TimeLine on will be able to receive their notifications in a pop over menu as well but with least distraction.
Through the subscriptions, users are also allowed to follow celebrities and journalists. Users also have the option to follow only certain types of movements of their Facebook friends such as status updates, photos, life events, music, or other activities as they choose. The overall speed and performance of the application has also been improved.
