Facebook for Windows Phone 8 gets a much needed update
A big number of users recently started experiencing issues with the Facebook app on their Windows Phone 8 handsets. The application tended to crash each time they try to access comments or their account notifications.

As you probably know, Facebook for Windows Phone is actually not made by Facebook itself, but by Microsoft. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but can lead to problems such as this one, because the issue has obviously been caused by a recent change in Facebook's API. Anyways, everything should be fixed now with this new update, which should be waiting you in the Store.

Since it was Facebook that had to change something in its API, Microsoft's Corporate VP, Joe Belfiore, took to... Twitter, to express his gratitude.

You can get the latest version of Facebook for Windows Phone here!

Every time new Windows comes out it takes Microsoft about a year to fix problems with it.
