Facebook Mobile News Feed Gets Like, Comment Buttons

Facebook made liking and commenting on news feed posts much easier for mobile users with an update over the weekend that eliminated a step.

As reported by sister blog Inside Facebook, the PLUS button on news feed posts that would bring up the like and comment buttons is no more, with like and comment options now appearing directly under each post.

The mobile news feed still does not include a share button, but should Facebook decide to implement that feature, it can be pushed to users without requiring them to update their applications, much like this weekend’s tweak, because the news feed is pulled into native apps from m.facebook.com.

Readers: What other changes would you like to see Facebook make to the mobile version of its news feed?
