Thread: Facebook 6.0 Released in the iOS App Store

  1. #1
    Default Facebook 6.0 Released in the iOS App Store


    Facebook for iOS has seen a major update Tuesday that brings the application to version 6.0. The update adds tons of new features for both the iPhone/iPod touch, and iPad.

    The update introduces Chat Heads to iOS, which is basically a new way to message your friends from anywhere in the Facebook application for iOS. The chat heads, when tapped, display a message sheet that contains your conversation with your friend. Tapping on the individual heads (or profile pictures) switches you between conversations. In addition, users can also send 'stickers' to their friends:



    In addition, users will notice that the Facebook Timeline and application icon have been tweaked for a different appearance. The update includes a filter, which is revealed at the top of the timeline, and a new color scheme for text. The blue bar at the top of the Facebook application also receives a minor facelift.

    The iPad version of the application receives most of the same improvements, although messaging 'stickers' aren't mentioned:



    According to the update change log, the chat heads and stickers may not be available to everyone immediately, as they will be rolled out for all users over the next couple of weeks.

    Existing users of the Facebook application will find the update in the Updates tab of the App Store. Alternatively, you can download Facebook for iOS for free from this link.

    For the ones saying they don't have the stickers, did you try tapping on the smiley face in the text field where you enter your text? It's also next to the location/compass icon. The stickers are very...cutesy. I have an iphone 4s.

    they said a bunch of times that it hasn't rolled out to everybody yet

    just like with the new emotions status thing from last week, i got that two weeks before my friends and before the news said it was out
