Facebook mobile gets an update

Facebook have once again updated their website design, this time making changes to the mobile browsing part of the website. The new layout better matches full desktop version of the website, but also improves browsing through friend's photos, updates, and even includes Facebook's "Like" feature for status updates and pictures.

The new updated design comes with better compatibility for mobiles devices for viewing friends and families pictures. Facebook have also changed their notification feed and indications for mobile browser users when they receive requests, updates and messages.

Facebook also has more plans to update the full version of the website in the coming weeks, including an updated content layout for the home page and some other minor tweaks.

Also expect to see Facebook and Xbox360 integration in the coming months for Xbox Live Gold members. Real time updates, notifications, chats and view pictures right from your Xbox360

Does http://x.facebook.com look any different?


Only the Home, Profile, Friends and Inbox at the top loads with that link, but yes it appears to be different to the m.facebook.com link.

Which is the normal normal link to use? I didnt realise there were multiple mobile versions of Facebook.

Some people are redirected to the m.facebook.com and some are redirected to x.facebook.com, i guess it depends on your mobile device, but you can always bookmark the x.facebook.com to access it.

x.facebook.com seems to be optimized for the iPhone/touch

Ah I see, I just searched for mobile Facebook a long time ago and added it to my favourites. Never realised there was x.facebook and iphone.facebook

I like to over the old one but some times I need to access the main one and just swapping the "iphone." to "www." in the URL doesn't work any more and the footer link to switch back is also gone.

Yep, that little notes icon on the upper right corner (a new feature), actually displays the # of new notifications you have.

Tooooo bad you still can't comment on photos like m.facebook.com can Once that's been remedied, x.facebook.com will be a much more appealing alternative on my Palm Pre.

not to sound annoying, but hows come every time facebook changes something, its front page news here? I mean come on....

Oops! I deactivated my facebook account and feel much much safer now!!!!
lOl :)) FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

I don't see why there is still an iphone.facebook.com when there's a much nicer, free application for it :)
This is a big loss of human hours ...
