    Been using it now for about an hour and it's FAR better than before folks


    Much much faster at loading esp photos and swiping through albums

    The social network added in the announcement:

    We've rebuilt the app from the ground up, so now the app opens much faster, and your news feed and notifications load right when you open Facebook.

    As you scroll down your news feed, all of your friends' stories appear faster than ever. A banner lets you know when new stories come in, and you can tap once to immediately see the latest updates.

    Tap on any photo and it opens right away. Pull down to close it with a single swipe.

    It works really well, and has finally brought timeline to the iPad!

    It may even convince me to use Facebook as much as twitter now!

    I only really use Facebook on my phone and the app recently has been awful to the point I was barely using it and sticking to twitter. Early thoughts of the update are positive...it's useable now!!

    Yeah. The big advantage is responding to notifications opens the relevant thread and not just the group page.

    Folks I'm having a small problem with the new Facebook app. I can't seem to tag myself in photos I've uploaded. I type my name and even try typing 'me' but I don't come up in the list of available tags.
    Anyone suffer the same or know what silly mistake I'm making.
    Thanks :)
