Introducing Facebook Messenger for iPhone

Facebook has introduced a second app for iPhone, a dedicated Facebook Messenger client to help you get your IM on. Sadly, it's not a universal binary so you're limited to chunky double fuzzy on iPad (same as the regular Facebook app... until they finally launch Facebook for iPad). Still, for hardcore Facebook Message users on the , this will no doubt be appreciated.

Details and screenshots after the break.

Poll: Which social networks do you use regularly?

Which social networks do you use regularly?

Facebook is the most popular app on the iPhone and we've often said Twitter and iOS go together like chocolate and peanut butter. But social networks rise and fall. Remember MySpace, Jaiku, Buzz... Friendster? And hey, how about Google+ now that it's expanding beyond the techie early adopters, or LinkedIn which seems to always hover neither here nor there.

UPDATED: Facebook for iPhone sneaks in UI changes in recent update

Facebook for iPhone received an update today, and despite being absent from the release notes, profile pages have received a UI change. The change brings uniformity to the app in that you will find Share Photo and Write Post buttons across the top of profile pages. These are similar to the Photo, Status, and Check-in buttons on the news feed.

Here are the traditionally cryptic release notes that Facebook did include with the update:

Is Geohot now working for Facebook? [video]

George Hotz, the jailbreak ninja that brought us LimeRa1n for iOS devices as well as the Sony PS3 jailbreak, might just be working at Facebook now.

In a video interview yesterday, Joshua Hill (P0sixninja) a member of the Chronic-Dev Team, confirmed that Geohot had a day job working at Facebook; that is why he declined the offer to help with the iPad 2 jailbreak. Apparently he does not want the attention after being recently sued by Sony.

Also Gabe Rivera of Techmeme, discovered Geohot’s Facebook page and confirmed that the first post at the top of the page said “Facebook is really an amazing place to work…first hackathon over.” The page has now been removed and throws up a message that the content is currently unavailable.

If true, this is an interesting development to say the least . Could it be linked somehow to the three recent Facebook stories which broke last week? We know Facebook is set to release a new photo sharing service, that Facebook was working on an iPad app, and also an  HTML 5 web app store.

Geohot's efforts to date seem to be in a different area than app development, but even with his experience in breaking security we are sure he would be a great asset!

Video after the break. Do you think Geohot's at Facebook and if so, what could he be working on?

Facebook working on secret photo sharing app?

I looks like Facebook is working on a massive photo sharing application for the iPhone. TechCrunch got their hands on documents, photos, and screenshots outlining the features: location elements, likes, comments, multi-picture mode, filters, multi-user albums, face-tagging, and more. They say it's almost like a mashup of Instagram, Color, Path, and Path's upcoming With. And though it might seem to be a reaction to iOS 5's new Twitter integration, they say it's been in development for a while now.

Daily Tip: How to ditch the Facebook for iPhone app (and still get notifications)

Not a fan of the official Facebook for iPhone app, desperate for an alternative, but still need to get notifications? Join the club. I've never been a fan. Their cryptic "bug fix" updates never seem to improve anything and notifications are always so finicky. More often than not, I open my Facebook app to find several notifications that were never pushed to my iPhone. On top of that, the timeline can be choppy or jump randomly. And the whole "liking comments" just seems to decide on its own whether or not it's going to work that specific day.

If you feel the same way, hit the jump for some workarounds and alternative solutions to using the Facebook for iPhone application.

Daily Tip: How to unfriend someone on Facebook

You know who they are -- the person you kinda sorta know, acquaintance of an acquaintance type of thing -- and they keep inviting you to events in other countries, adding you to groups you couldn't care any less about, and spamming your wall with their virus links, and you're just dying to know how to unfriend them.

Well, rest easy. It's not rude. It's not anti-social. It's not you -- it's them. They're unfriendable. And it's Facebook, with their "invite all", "add to group", and other easy-to-abuse buttons. You're not breaking any covenants that ought not be broken. You're simply restoring your Facebook sanity. And we're going to help you... after the break.

Jabra STONE2 BT headset give-away - Become TiPb's Facebook friend!

TiPb nation, as you may or may not be aware, a couple of weeks ago the TiPb Facebook page (along with a few other prominent tech sites) was torn down and it took Facebook the better part of a day to figure out how they were gamed and get it back online. And frankly, we're not sure all our TiPb Facebook friends made it through the ordeal with us.

So, we're calling all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV lovers, we're asking all gadget enthusiasts and techies -- we're counting on each and every one of you to head on over to TiPb's newly restored Facebook page and become our friend. (i.e. go to the page and hit the "Like" button!)

In return we'll give you the very best in iOS coverage on Facebook... and we'll give one of you (old friend or new!) one of these gorgeous Jabra STONE2 Bluetooth headsets courtesy of the TiPb Accessory Store! (W00t!)

Details after the break, but really... you've friended us already, right?!

Where in the world is the TiPb Facebook page? [Updated]

We'd like to know that as well. Late last night we were sent a very brief notice by Facebook saying they were removing the TiPb page. Nothing by way of specific explanation, no attempt to address any concerns, nothing. Just whoosh, another page annihilated.

We say "another" because it looks like we're not alone. Ars Technica's page is gone to, as are the pages for several other technology and gadget sites.

Facebook for iPhone allows 'liking' comments... sometimes

Facebook has made some backend changes that allow users to 'like' comments from stories in their news feed. This has been a much requested feature from Facebook users and, unfortunately, Facebook has only half-delivered.

As you can see from the screenshots above, comments are only "likeable" when viewing from the news feed. If you access comments from anywhere else, say notifications or a friend's profile page, you cannot 'like' them.

Who's excited about this feature and can't wait for it to be app wide?
