    I just wanted to direct others who still use Facebook to hit the Market for their latest update. This one seems to be a nice one with more than fluff. There are quite a few new "usable" features. Check it out. This is the vendor has to say:

    Facebook for Android v1.7 is now available in Android Market. In this release, we made it easier to share with who you want by improving the sharing tool to add privacy controls on posts and match your settings on the web site. We also added a lot of cool new features like Pull to Refresh and the ability to tag friends in photos, places and posts. Finally, there's also a great new design for Profiles and Groups

    The update seems good...enough to have me wanting to come back and re-visit the app and see if its a keeper.

    So they changed the way you tag someone in a post? I used to like to do in-line tagging ie: Bigfire8: thinks @john smith should stop whining about having to take out the garbage, where the person's name would show up and notify them they were tagged.

    Why would I now have to type their name in the sentence, and then use the tag feature as a second step to do the same work?

    Also seems to take away the ability to tag fan pages. Good example of this is when you want to say something about your favorite team's win/loss etc and would tag them in your post. Can't do that anymore. WTF?

    Just also realized how poor the photo tagging feature is...just adds the name of the person, vs pointing to a spot in the photo. Dumb when you might have 15 people in a picture from a get together let's say. How would somebody put a name to a face they remember but just met??? Can't possibly add as a friend from that.

    I think the people that "can tag photos" are confused. When you upload a photo to a status you can tag friends in the status but that does NOT tag them in the actual photo. There is no current way to actually tag a photo that is in any album on your FB.

    No, it's working for me. Tap on the photo when you enter a comment and it'll let you tag.

    I only uploaded one pic, but the app had facial recognition! Tagged my friend, and it's pointing at his face on the website.
    I'll try to see if it's possible to tag at a specific location manually.

    Edit: just tried it and I can tag at a specific location in the picture. When I upload a pic, it says "tap to tag". Works great,

    Been using the update since yesterday and I haven't encountered any problems so far it crashed once when I was browsing an album, but it never happened again after I restarted the application.

    Yeah I ended up finding it after updating to 1.7.1. What a horrible implementation of tagging photos. I hate to say it but they should of gone like the iPhone version and made it where you go to an album and choose a picture tap menu and there would be a tag option to then choose who to tag in the photo.

    BUT at least they put it in finally so that's a positive!

    That's been the case since way back when, they pulled the app for tablet.
    With the recent reintroduction I though they would have fixed that but guess not.

    Have you all noticed that, although 30 minutes is the most frequent update choice in the settings, the notifications seem to be acting as if they are real-time push notifications. I've noticed, and am pretty pleased....

    I used Friendcaster religiously, but lately, I have been impressed with the official app....

    Thanks,

    Matt!

    Can you add a screen cap of what you are suggesting? Because on my Evo3D there is most definitely not an option to tag someone by hitting tap to tag. I know this can be done with uploading via Facebook for HTC sense and maybe other manufacturer UI uploaders but the Android App only allows to add names of people that are in the photo.

    ^-- same here.

    Actually, I loaded the new FB app this morning and my GPS started pinging the instant I started it the first time. I exited from Facebook and the GPS still was going pingy-pingy. So I restarted my phone, and haven't had the problem since, even when I go to run Facebook.

    I wonder if there's some sort of problem with upgrading a running Facebook instance where the new one sees some flag in the old one's memory or something?

    In any case, a quick reboot fixed it up. Killing the task might have worked just as well - I'm too lazy to go navigating around to kill a task when a phone reboot is two button-presses and a screen tap away (plus there's nothing like that freshly-rebooted feeling)

    I was able to resolve my issue similarly by Force Stopping the Facebook app in the Application settings and then relaunching it.

    I hadn't paid attention to it and it killed my battery yesterday, tho.
