Facebook for Windows Phone gets big update

If you own any smartphone on the market, chances are there's a Facebook app that you use a lot and that includes Windows Phone-based devices. Today, Microsoft has announced that a new update to the Windows Phone Facebook app is now available to download from the Windows Phone Marketplace.

The 2.5 update adds a number of new features, many of which will be welcome news to power Facebook users. The Windows Phone Facebook app now has the ability to let users "like" comments. The new app version also adds full-threaded Facebook messaging and even for group messages.

The updated app also allows users to tag their friends using 'with' and ‘at’ formats. If you don't want to see a particular comment or news post, the updated app now lets people delete them. There's also been some updates to commenting and "likes" on photo pages that now match those on posts comments and "likes" pages.

Facebook doesn't directly develop the Windows Phone app; that's actually done by Microsoft itself. It's  clear that the company sees that having a well designed and feature rich Facebook app is important for Windows Phone users.
