New Facebook Beta app for WP 8 and 8.1

4

It’s Facebook mania on the web!! I would hate to repeat what all the other sites are saying right now about Facebook Beta getting a totally new refresh today. OK, I just said it as well, but there is something that I have been hoping and waiting for ever since I started using Windows Phone that has FINALLY arrived in this new update: the ability to choose which album you want to share your photos to, as shown here from this screen-shot:

 

Photo album icon under your photo - tap it and choose from all of your FB albums

I have actually been manually moving my mobile uploads on Facebook to my ‘Nokia Lumia 1020’ album via my computer. It’s a pain because sometimes, if a person has ‘Liked’ or commented on my photo, moving it removes it from my feed and no one else can see it.

Now, after just testing this out, my photo is not only uploaded to the album I choose, but it remains on my feed so that people can still ‘Like’ and comment if they wish to.

A small aspect of a big update. It’s actually a really nice overhaul, with lots of tweaks to the UI and, probably most crucial of all, it is way faster now. Tapping on friends’ comments, photos and the rest of it, is all much more fluid and speedy now – this is finally a really decent Facebook app for Windows Phone.
