    Default Facebook for iOS Updated to Version 5.3


    There sure have been a large amount of Facebook updates for iOS lately. Facebook has been brought to version 5.3 this evening with major speed improvements to the News Feed and user Timelines. Facebook touts a completely re-built Timeline, which means that speed and stability will be noticeable in this update.

    The speedier Timelines should make it so that slight delay in speed when trying to load a user's profile will now be a thing of the past. With the faster News Feed, you will be able to see the latest things going on with your Facebook friends almost immediately after you open the application. It should also make scrolling a little smoother.

    Another new feature that has been included with the update is the ability to choose an album when uploading pictures. Now When uploading a picture, you will see a new Album button in the composition screen where you can add a Status Update to the picture – this allows you to choose where the picture will end up when it is uploaded.

    Before this new picture uploading feature, you needed to actually go into an album and then choose to add pictures to that album when uploading, otherwise Facebook would automatically shove your pictures into a "Mobile Uploads" album. This might have come off as annoying, since many people try to keep their albums organized so they know where to find specific pictures in the future.

    The Facebook 5.3 update is available from the Updates tab in the App Store. Alternatively, users can download Facebook for free from this link.

    Make sure you only slide on the post. Just did it and it worked for me.

    To delete a post. Just 'tap' the 3 dots on the right top corner of the post. A menu will pop with the option to hide or delete

    Still unable to watch videos in landscape mode

    They're shelling out a lot of updates. I just updated and I'm hoping there's major improvements speed-wise.

    Same here... It's ridiculous, I don't understand what the problem is. It can't be a jailbreak issue, because a few friends with jailbroken iPhones have no problems with the app... Gathering from the reviews on the app, there must be a lot of others experiencing it too... But c'mon, 4 different updates and you still can't iron out the bugs? That's ridiculous...

    Seems to work absolutely fine on iOS 5.1.1, iOS 6.0, and iOS 6.0.1.
