If you got a new Windows 8 or RT device for Christmas one of the first apps you probably downloaded was Facebook. Today the app has received a hefty post-holiday update with a ton of new features. Windows 8.1 actually auto-updates apps in the background, so you might already have this new version. Here is what it brings:

  • 320 snap view for the whole app
  • Smileys sticker pack
  • Profile pic sync
  • New Stories indicator
  • Create albums from photos page
  • Add photos directly into an album
  • Search thread names when choosing conversation members
  • Refresh in Nearby
  • Improved toast notifications to remove already seen messages, old stories, etc.
  • Edit Posts
  • Edit post privacy
  • Edit Comments
  • Copy link to post
  • Add/Remove people from groups
  • Add friends to lists
  • Delete photos

Not bad. It’s nice to see Facebook actually keeping up with this app. They have released several updates since launch. Do you use the Facebook app or just the browser? Download Facebook for Windows 8.1 for free here.
