Facebook v1.7 for Android sports a new look and supports Honeycomb
Facebook fanatics have something to look forward to if they own an Android powered device. That’s because the popular app is updated to version 1.7, which brings forth some exciting new design changes, and more importantly, offers support for Honeycomb as well.

For starters, the most significant change is the new design found with it. Specifically, we now find easy to access buttons to post something, upload an image, or simply check-in to a location directly from within the news feeds. Moreover, we also find redesigns to the profile view as well. Besides the new look of the app, it also packs some updated privacy controls as well to better give the user control over what they want to share.

Finally, Honeycomb tablet users will be especially glad to find the app available to them once again now that it supports the platform – even though if the app itself doesn’t really offer a tablet-friendly experience

The full lists of new features include the following:

  • Made it easier to share with who you want
  • Improved the sharing tool to add privacy controls on posts and match your settings on the web site
  • Added the ability to tag friends and places in posts
  • Added new design for Profile and Group Walls
  • Fixes and tweaks:
  • Improved photo browsing with swiping
  • Added the ability to tag your friends in photos
  • Improved Messages and Notifications
  • Fixed a number of crashes and performance issues
