To begin with, users are now enabled to glance through their friends on a map from the Places area and stay connected in an even better way. With embedded support for Google Maps, the app allows users to seamlessly view their favorite amigos on maps and enhance their entire social experience. Just simply click a friend’s name in the Activity view of the Places list and you will notice a revamped thumbnail.

By taking advantage of which, you will be able to facilely plot the location of your friend’s latest check-in on a Google Map. At the same time, if you wish to view things in a better and a fuller space, then merely tap the map to stretch out.

First, inducing people or inspiring users to RSVP and second to let them check in more often, Interesting, isn’t it?

Improved News Feed

Well, there’s an enhanced News Feed as well which now keeps iPhone users thoroughly updated with what’s happening around. So be it someone’s very recently updated status, newly posted personal photo or just new group being liked, the improved news feed section will put forth all the latest

Ability to Un-friend

What’s more, the ability to un-friend someone from the mobile device has finally been endowed. In a nutshell, you won’t really be having any more episodes of ‘down in the dumps’.

However, event check-ins topples as Facebook for iPhone app’s most highlighted part. So, whether you want someone to reach a destination or are invited yourself to a friend’s get together small party, for example, you will be enabled to easily check in when you reach the spot. But to notify, the revamped version is basically a logical extension of Facebook check-ins and hopefully this will only perk up the
experience further.

All in one Place

Although Facebook app for the iOS platform is quite intuitive and feature-rich, the v3.4 is just anticipated to leverage that experience. Since over 250 million people have actively been benefiting from the diverse social platform either via their desktop or mobile devices, Facebook’s recent upgrade expects to gain a little more of brownie points. After all, what could get better than Event Check-ins, the
ability to un-friend someone, and an improved News Feed all integrated in a single shell?

Nevertheless, iPhone users who already have the Facebook Mobile app can simply upgrade their version to a higher one. On the other hand, those who are yet to latch onto the app can simply head towards Apple’s official App Store and download the application. To wrap it up, whatever the software has come been tweaked for, users will certainly be left with an enriched social experience.
