Video uploading comes to the Facebook app

Facebook has brought out an update to their Android Facebook application, which delivers many fixes and enhancements that include video uploading.

Facebook for Android version 1.6.1 brings to the Google mobile operating system the ability to upload and post videos to the social networking site natively

– for the first time.This comes off the back of the recent announcement from Facebook of their Every Phone App, which is a Java application for low costing budget handsets that basically allows for the same functionality.

On-board the new rendition of the Facebook app is the ability to use the ‘@’ sign in status updates, to tag friends and Facebook pages from inside of posts; this is a much welcomed feature and one that’s been a part of the desktop web browser version for some time.

There is also improved page support in the mobile software, which allows viewing the full list of Facebook pages that are previously ‘liked’, in addition to posting on pages that are administrated too, such as birthday invites, groups and similar pages.

Android for Facebook 1.6.1 is available from the Android Market place now, or from the social networking download section at from inside of a mobile phone’s web browser.
