The Facebook iOS app has just been updated to version 5.1 which brings some of the features of the stand-alone Facebook Messenger and Facebook camera apps. This new feature includes the ability to swipe left anywhere in the app to let you see who among your friends are online so that you can send a message. This means, you don’t have to exit from the Facebook app and open the Facebook Messenger app anymore. In addition, the app also now lets you make the friend whom you send the most number of messages as one of your favorites. In case you’re not using the Facebook Messenger app, these two features were taken from that app. For the camera feature, the Facebook iOS app will now let you share multiple photos faster. Other new features of the updated Facebook app include – the ability to send Facebook gifts (US only) and the ability to see who’s active among your friends and to see how soon to expect a reply from your friends. The Facebook iOS app is available as a free download from the iOS App Store.
