FaceBook AppFacebook version 2.0 is finally out, and the new features make Facebook for the iPhone more usable than ever.

Let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way. It’s faster and more stable than you might have found the Facebook app to be in the past. Plus, there is a plethora of new features. Here are the details from the update.

  • Notifications
  • The full News Feed
  • News Feed story commets
  • People search
  • Friend requests
  • Photo tagging
  • Photo captioning
  • Photo posts to your friends’ Walls
  • The full Mini-Feed, now combined with The Wall
  • Your entire inbox, plus the sent folder and updates tab
  • Inbox search
  • Message attachments

If you’re addicted to Facebook, and even if you aren’t, these updates are huge. You can finally find and add friends straight from the app. This feature should have been available from the beginning. Facebook is about networking, so how do you expand your network without being able to add friends? You couldn’t, but now you can. You also have a lot more photo features to utilize.

Overall, this seems like a great update. Be sure to check out Facebook on the App Store.
