  4. 4. Facebook App Stats Statistics reveal that there is an estimated 34 million active users of the Facebook iPhone app in a month. Facebook, which has more than 750 million users worldwide, divulges that this is almost one-third of all iPhone users. Facebook is free to download from the App Store and frequently makes the “Top 25” list. If you already have the Facebook app and have not yet updated to 4.0, be prepared for some changes.
  5. 5.

  8. 8. Splas h You will notice right away the there is a new splash screen upon starting the app. You will have to enter your login information if your starting the new version for the first time but should only have to do this once, unless you log out. (To log out, go to „Account‟ at the very bottom of the home menu. Once you click account a menu you pop up with your account settings, privacy settings, help center and lastly, logout.)
  9. 9. News FeedThe news feed hasn‟t changed much.Main Menu (this is new)Friend RequestsMessagesNotificationsAll Stories brings up a scroll menu where you can choosefrom all stories, status updates, photos, links, pages,events, videos, acquaintances and groups or networks thatare specific to each user.
  10. 10. Home MenuThe hub of the Facebook app is the new menu, whichoffers the same information from the last version simply ina different orientation. You‟ve got your categories on theleft which expand from right when clicked. This interface ismuch more sleek and user friendly.To access even more Facebook features you can open up abookmarks sidebar and quickly view and select things likeyour friends list, groups, events, apps, and games.Although apps and games are selectable here, they cant berun from within the Facebook app and youll need todownload then run a separate app or game on your iOSdevice.
  11. 11. Message s Accessing your messages has never been easier using the new menu system. It has new options at the bottom, first one being your messages, which will also display your new and unread messages. Other displays messages from groups or individuals you may have „liked‟. Online gives you a list of friends that are online and available to chat.
  12. 12. PhotosWhen browsing your own or someone elses photos youwill now see them in a grid-view so you can view thephoto you wish to view, which certainly makes it feelmore like the desktop version of Facebook. If you arelooking at your own photos you also have the option (+)to add photos into the current folder.When you tap on a photo you will notice a new layoutsystem on the photo, everything is more like thedesktop version where „Like‟ & „Comment‟ have theirown separate buttons. Unlike the previous version whereyou just had one button that took you to the commentsand you could „Like‟ & „Comment‟ from there.
  13. 13. Photos If you tap the button on the top right hand corner you will see these options. Some of them are only available for you own photos. These options are much simpler than the previous app version and it‟s great that they‟re all in one place.
  14. 14. Chat There are still some things about the Facebook app that need improvement. For instance, the chat option can be somewhat confusing. You can open a chat window and text people, but then these also show up in your message inbox, which can be a bit bothersome. Hopefully Facebook will work out kinks. Chatting on the iPad-optimized version is much more comfortable than on the iPhone, because chats appear in a sidebar on the left of the screen, allowing you to continue viewing the rest of Facebook at the same time.
  15. 15. Facebook 4.0 If you‟ve got an iPhone and have never had the Facebook app, now is a great time to jump onboard! If you are just updating from a previous version, I think you will really like what Facebook has done. 4.0‟s interface is much more user friendly and straight forward.
