Among the improvements is the Nearby Friends feature, which the company unveiled recently. While it is currently only available for Facebook Users in the US, Nearby Friends will allow you to share your location with friends who are closeby. This is a map based feature, which should make it easier to find your friends when you meet up next time. Nearby friends requires users to opt-in so you can be assured that your privacy won't be compromised in anyway.

Facebook for Android brings a few new features of its own including the ability to "like" posts, photos, and pages without an internet connection. So if you're scrolling through your stream but don't have a data connection, no worries - just hit the "like" button and forget about it. The action will of course sync once you get signal. Facebook for Android also adds the ability to remove tags you've created, or untag yourself from friends' content. Users can also turn post notifications on or off, and the update adds - of course - "improvements for speed and reliability."

Facebook introduces optional Nearby Friends feature for Android and iPhone


Facebook Nearby Friends for Android and iPhone

Facebook just announced a new feature for Android and iPhone users called Nearby Friends. This is an optional feature that "occasionally" notifies you when Facebook friends are nearby, allowing you to "get in touch with them and meet up".

Users can turn the Nearby Friends feature on (or off) at any time, and they can choose which friends to see. To detect a friend nearby, both you and your friend will need to have the new feature enabled. You can choose to share a particular location with a select group of friends for a set period of time. When the feature is enabled, the friend will be able to see exactly where you are on a map.

Nearby Friends can also be used when you are travelling, so your friends who have been to a location you are visiting will be able to give your recommendations on places to see or restaurants to dine in. 

According to Facebook, Nearby Friends will be available in the US in "the coming weeks." as an update to Facebook for Android and Facebook for iOS. You can find out more about Nearby Friends at the source link below.

[Android app] Facebook updated with a new user interface



Facebook for Android has been updated with a new user interface which is flatter and easier to navigate through. This is the same design which was released for a short period on Facebook's alpha channel several months ago. Facebook for Android is now visually more similar to its iOS counterpart in terms of looks, as both the buttons and the interface elements are now even more minimalistic and simplified.

You can download the update directly on your device through the Google Play Store. You can also download the update and find out whats new after the break.

The Facebook for Android app also brings several enhancements to its user interface. Previously users could only swipe between the leftmost menu, news feed, and Facebook chat. Now new buttons have been added on the main screen to view your notifications and friend requests.

This means Facebook users on Android will have five different tabs to swipe between - their news feed, friend requests, messages, notifications, and the Facebook menu, which can be found furthest to the right. Fortunately, the Facebook chat window has been kept unchanged, but you can't access it via swipe, you have to tap the top right button instead.

Additionally the Status, Photo and Check In posting options are now located on the bottom of your screen. They will disappear automatically when you scroll down through your news feed and appear again when you scroll up.

Along with all these new features, the update also brings several performance improvements and bug fixes to the app, which should enhance the reliability and overall speed. If the update is not available immediately it may take awhile to reach your device as such updates are generally rolled out in phases.
