Official Facebook app for Windows Phone updated with latest beta features
Microsoft has once again updated the official Facebook app for Windows Phone, bringing the public version up to speed with the beta. If you've not been following our rather frenzied Facebook Beta coverage, this latest release (220.127.116.11) includes numerous improvements and fixes. These include the ability to unfriend someone, as well as "unlike" a page and numerous stability improvements - essentially everything from each update since version 5.
This will become a regular occurrence as Microsoft works to further improve the Facebook experience on Windows Phone. If you haven't yet already, we recommend you download the Facebook Beta (Windows Phone 8 only) if you're interested in trying out all the latest improvements before the official app is updated. You can download Facebook from the Windows Phone Store. Thanks, Scott, for the tip!

EDIT: I thought this was for the Facebook Beta. Sorry!
i understand gfunk84's idea, but that's not what DataSense is for, or at least "entering" your own cap/time can be done at app level like what Nokia has done, so I guess that's why they don't want to confuse customers by doing that
this is just so damn annoying!
they never said anything like that about windows xp or windows mobile, did they?
and if you're trying to be funny, it's like you're saying "where are the dinosaurs?", when i'm just asking about the asiatic elephant.
Please stop going around calling people "idiots". It does nothing for your point, actually hurts in my opinion because I stop reading when a post starts like that.
2. many developers have abandoned it, true. but MS said they would release the new wp7.x app soon after wp8 app came out of beta, which it did quite some time back. so that's the reason I asked about it.
3. I got my lumia 710 hardly an year ago. and we don't have carrier subsidies here, like the US, so buying a new phone every year isn't feasible.
your comparison would hold true if i asked about something like, say temple run.
though even in that case it wouldn't.
3 more versions of android came out after 2.3.
while 8 came directly after 7.8.
also android 2.3 was released over two years ago. 7.8 came out this year.
so next time, just get the facts right.
If they keep this speed of updates up, I'll have made the right decision. Right now, the official is is up to date with the beta and it only came a week later, a small wait for insured stability.
I never get Facebook message notifications on my Lumia 710, yet my Android tablet gets them immediately. This is honestly one of the main things that I would leave Windows Phone for. I’m holding off getting a new phone until I see if WP8 can solve this. I want the Lumia 1020, but the notification problem is keeping me from moving forward.
Is it even close to being fixed?
I love Nokia too and I don't want to give up on them.
So it seems like the languages are removed.
While I do not use facebook, my wife does on her iPhone 4S. I asked her to show me the FB app on iOS so I could compare the two platforms, only to find out that she hates the iOS app too and instead used FB on her mobile Safari on iOS! I opened 'User Agent Switcher' app on my Lumia 920, changed agent to iPhone, loaded the mobile FB site and asked her to login and tell me how her experience is. She said she could not even tell if the two were different - same experience for her as her iOS.
