Facebook for Windows Phone updated – feed filters, privacy controls, bug fixes

By on

If you have read Chris Southcott’s little complaint about Windows Phone 7 (and listened here, and here), then you would have also noted his dislike of the Facebook app. Well, Facebook has pushed a new update that is said to fix some of the problems of the app.

To be fair, Stewart also hates the app.

There have been several improvements in version 2.3 with the news feed, including in performance and filtering. As well, you can now view who liked what, and manually set your post’s privacy from the phone.

In addition, there has been improved navigation, and new designs for the profile and panorama. Also – finally, if you manage a page – this version will now let you visit your pages and groups and, assuming, manage them from the app.

The update is being released in the marketplace today – but do remember it may take a while for it to show up.
