Facebook has just introduced a new social networking website known as Facebook Mobile. The website is mainly designed to be more functional and user friendly for its mobile users. In fact, it already seems to be the complete opposite of the regular Facebook. Users will find that the mobile version is more attractive and user-friendly than its standard version. We take a look at some of the top characteristics that have made this social network more exciting and attractive for its users.
Unlike the standard site, the Facebook Mobile allows its users to access their networks from any place. They do not need to stay at their desktop or laptop to access the networking site. For instance, if they want to check what their friends are up to, they can just pull up their phone and see the updates. As a result, the users can save a lot of time and money that would otherwise be spent travelling around the town.
On the other hand, the users can now upload images, pictures and videos directly to their mobiles. This feature has been implemented in order to provide the users with better interaction with the social network. They no longer need to search for a specific photo or video in order to share them. The users can simply upload the files and share them with their friends.
Facebook has also integrated an updated gallery. It is now easier to share pictures and add comments on them. The gallery is especially useful for the businesses. This will allow the social network to attract more visitors from the mobile devices of their customers. By doing so, the business owners can easily communicate with their customers on a more personal level.
When it comes to the messaging area, Facebook has made some interesting changes. For instance, it has enabled easy discussion on group walls. Now, the users can create conversations with other groups. They can easily talk about their ideas or issues and get useful feedback from their peers. Furthermore, they can even ask other people for opinions.
In addition, the profile pages of the Facebook users are getting a major makeover. Now, all the user profiles are shown in a vertical orientation. This means that the entire profile will be viewed from left to right. This change was made in order to make the user’s profile page more interesting and useful. In fact, this also allows users to access different information such as the latest posts by their friends, upcoming events and many more.
The third major change is the introduction of the Facebook app on the Android platform. The developers of Facebook have successfully incorporated the functionality of the desktop version in the mobile versions. The app offers a very useful function for the users. The main advantage of the application is its simplified navigation and easy usage.
The app allows the users to easily access the News feed, Menu, and the messages from their friends. The enhanced version also provides a better interface and makes it easier to use. The Facebook mobile website does not allow the users to directly access the apps. Rather, they have to go through the ‘application drawer’ on the mobile browser.
The fourth major difference between the mobile and desktop version is that the apps are not differentiated based on the social network that they are used on. This means that, the users can continue to access their apps across multiple social networking sites. They also do not have to log out and log in to their respective accounts on the web in order to switch between the apps. This ensures that the users do not lose their login details.
The fifth major difference between the Facebook mobile app and the desktop versions is that the mobile version includes the Timeline sidebar. It enables the users to see the recent posts on their friends’ pages even when they are not connected to the social network. This feature has been incorporated with a single tap of the screen. Furthermore, the app includes the Recorder tab. With this tab, the users can easily record videos and images on their smartphones.
The sixth difference is the absence of the Privacy Center app on the Facebook apps for mobiles. The Privacy Center is present on the desktops but it can only be installed on the iPhone. This feature has been integrated with the iPhone for iPhone 4 and the later models of the iPod Touch. There is also an uninstall option available from the main menu of the app. The uninstall option enables the users to get rid of the app without having to destroy their data on the server.
