Facebook Updates Mobile Apps with Bigger Pictures

Posted on May 15, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , |

Facebook had promised investors that improving upon their mobile apps would be their first task post IPO . The company now writes on their Facebook Mobile page that they’ve brought an update to their mobile apps and have added larger pictures.

Photos are three times larger and Facebook says that the photos will fill your mobile device’s screen from edge to edge. The new design willbe made available on iOS, Android and This improvement of mobile pictures comes right after Facebook acquired Instagram for $1 billion.

Google+ also recently updated their iOS app to provide enhancement to photos. Both social networks understand therole of a mobile device intaking and sharing photos and as a result, itseems both services want to offer improvements to mobile photos. Facebook, in its app for Every Phone added filters recently to the photo uploader. Users can now add a greyscale filter or a sepia filter to the photos they upload to the social network. With Facebook milking its acquisition of Instagram, we’re bound to see more improvements to mobile photos.

Facebook has been criticized by investors for their mobileapps lacking advertisements and therefore, the substantial revenue stream that their web interface enjoys. Facebook also recently announced that they’re testing a new feature, “Highlighted Posts” whereusers can pay for their statues to hold prominence over other status updates. It will be interesting to see if that feature will come to mobile devices to help with mobile monetization.
