facebook icon The iOS version of the Facebook app received an update today bringing it to version 6.1. When you download it, the first thing you may notice is the new app icon. The font of the Facebook “f” is the same, but the icon now has grid lines and a silver trim around its borders. It’s an odd change for sure.

Beyond the differences with the icon lie more features in the photo category. You now have options to save and share any photo you’re viewing from within the application. You can also make those images into your profile picture if you’d like.

The changelog also notes “improved places editing” and faster loading events. Overall, the app feels the same in terms of speed.
