iPhone Facebook app gets account and privacy settings
Facebook released an update to its iPhone app bringing long-awaited account and privacy settings to the mobile version of the social network. The update also fixes a bug that did not allow users to upload photos to specific albums. This brings the version number for the app to 3.3.2.

Needless to say, this is a welcome addition as security has been one of Facebook's most discussed issues. The implementation however leaves much to be desired. Currently, when you try to edit your account or privacy settings you are taken to the app's web browser, which directs you to the Facebook website. We are hopeful that this will change in future versions since it is neither touch friendly nor fast enough but we are still much better with it than without it.

The update brings nothing of the rumored webmail service. Facebook is said to launch “@facebook.com” email addresses and with more than 500 million subscribers this would be huge news. The project is codenamed Titan and we are excited to see if it lives up to the name. Stay tuned as more on this is expected later today.
