Video Upload and Pages comes to Facebook for Android with new update to version 1.6
If you were busy all day, you might not have noticed the Facebook update in the Android Market waiting for you to download. Facebook for Android version 1.6 brings some new features including an improved News Feed, Video Upload and Pages support.

The Video Upload feature allows you to take a video with your device and upload it to your Facebook page. The News Feed will now load more types of posts and with the new Pages support, when you click on a page that appears on your News Feed, you can browse through it from within the app.

Once you've updated your Facebook app, let us know what you think. The Android version of the app is still not exactly the same as the iOS one as the latter allows you to search for a Page quickly while the Android variant requires you to look through your News Feed to find a page. But with each update, progress is being made.

They need to make the whole app like iOS. if you chat with somebody and aren't in the facebook app it will show you who sent a message but wont show the message.

They still need to get it to where you can *manage* your pages. Honestly, I thought that was going to happen with this update.

What they need to do is start working on the their Android Tablet optimized version of this App.

Hi guys, I have an HTC Thunderbolt and I updated to Android Facebook version 1.6. The only problem is when I click on News Feed it just keeps refreshing itself. I cannot move anywhere on the page. Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks.
