Facebook For IOS Gets Structured Status Updates, Ability To Edit Privacy Settings Of Shared Content

Facebook released version 6.2 of its application for iOS devices, adding the structured status updates that were previously available only on desktop or via the social network’s mobile site, as well as the ability to edit who can see content users have shared, even if that content was shared in the past.

When users tap the smiley-face icon under the field for their status updates, they can access a menu that allows them to add information including how they’re feeling (with emoticons), or what they’re watching, listening to, reading, eating, or drinking.

New conversations can also be started with photos received in messages.

The feature allowing users to edit the privacy settings on specific content was rolled out to Android users earlier this month.

iOS users: Have you updated to version 6.2 yet?
