Facebook app updated so you can set your cover photo on the go!

The Facebook app for iPhone and iPad has been updated to version 5.6 and the major new feature is simple yet convenient -- you can now set cover photos on the go, right from your iOS device. If that's not enough, Facebook has also reduced the amount of taps it takes to start a group message.

To change your cover photo inside the Facebook iOS app, simply touch and hold the existing photo, and a slide-up menu will give you the option to take a new one, or select and existing photo from your Camera Roll.

I tried it out on my account and it worked easily and quickly. If you give it a whirl, let me know how it works for you.

You can grab the Facebook for iPhone and iPad app from the App Store.
