Facebook App Update As Android App Goes Native

3 timeline phone 220x362 Facebooks Android app goes native, now available with updated with focus on speed and performance
Facebook have updated both iOS and Android apps with both now leaving the HTML5 format and becoming completely native.

The company has rebuilt the Android app from scratch in the hope of improving user experience with faster speed connections and a better performance. All Facebook services will now be the same on each major platform.
Android users will now get the same experience from their device that iOS users do. A post on Facebook’s engineering blog says; “we’re moving from a hybrid native/webview to pure native code, allowing us to optimize the Facebook experience for faster loading, new user interfaces, disk cache, and so on.”
The updated versions will load the News Feed quicker and improve the performance of the Timeline. The whole app should run faster on the iPhone.

Also, users can now select a specific album to upload photos to from the iOS app. The Android format has had this functionality since October.
Facebook has previously promised to update its mobile apps every 1 to 2 months which includes the iOS, Android, Facebook Messenger, and Facebook Camera apps. This new update has come just over a month since the last one.

What do you think of the new updated apps?

Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with

Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm
not seeing very good

results. If you know of any please share. Kudos!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
Look at my blog post -

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

If you create your blog through blogger thwen you do not need to have a massive amount of knowledge about coding as it is all very simple and straight forward.
