Facebook has been receiving some nice updates over the past couple of weeks, the biggest being its support of hashtags, which is a method of tagging that originated from Twitter and has even been supported by social networking rival Google+ for several months. Facebook has released a new update today, but this time, it’s focusing on updating its iOS application.
Facebook version 6.2 now allows its users to add emoji-style icons to their status updates to share how they’re feeling in addition to whatever they deem important enough to be shared in a status update. This feature was made available on Facebook earlier this year, and has finally made itself available onto iOS. As of now, only the English version of Facebook’s iOS app has the ability to share how you’re feeling.
The ability to share how you’re feeling along with your status update isn’t the only improvement Facebook rolled out into its iOS application as they also now allow users to change their privacy settings on posts they’ve already shared to either include or leave out certain users from reading their updates.
