It was the previous Friday when Facebook sent out an update for their app for Android users, and the thing that raised eyebrows was how the update was delivered. It seemed as though Facebook decided to bypass the Google Play store, sending the update straight from Facebook itself, which raised some questions and eyebrows from certain quarters. While the Android operating system does come with an automatic updating feature, this is not turned on by default, so you will have to check this prior to installation.
Good to know that things seem back on track today, as Facebook has started to send out a similar update for their Facebook for Android app, using the more “traditional” method that folks are familiar with – that is, through the Google Play Store. With the latest update, you are able to change your profile image from the app itself, in addition to report posts as spam if you think so, and perform a better job when it comes to managing group messaging. Perhaps their previous method did not prove to be as successful as they thought?
