Facebook Windows Phone 8

By now you should know that we’re not big Facebook users around here. Hey, if everyone can critique the stupidity of Instagram, we can do the same for Facebook. Regardless, we know many of you love the service and rely on it to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues. So it’s exciting to see the app get a nice 0.1 update to version 4.2 today (last update was for 7.8 in December).

Unfortunately there is no change log with this update, as it instead relies on the old update info from when the app got some Windows Phone 8 features. Also a cursory look around the app did not reveal any major new features but figuring out the labyrinth like feature-set of the world’s largest social network is never easy to begin with.

Feel free to grab version 4.2 of the official Facebook app here in the Windows Phone 8 Store and for Windows Phone 7.x users, you should be on v2.9 today. Note that this update is fresh off the presses, so some of you will only see 2.8 or 4.1 for now. Sit tight and try again later as we’re ahead of the curve on this one today.

Anyway, please let us know in comments if the app, which gets a lot of complaints, has improved at all. Fingers crossed.

Thanks, Jorge S. and Chad F., for the tip!
