Facebook 3.1 for iPhone, iPod touch brings Push support


Social networking site Facebook has released version 3.1 of its official application for the iPhone and iPod touch. The updated application offers optional Push Notifications for friend requests, wall posts, comments, and more, the ability to sync Facebook friends with your Address Book, and a choice of Live Feed within the main News Feed filter options. Facebook 3.1 is available now as a free download from the App Store.

This was about time! The push support is a great addition. On the other side, the adress book sync is in my opinion slightly on the edge. The moment you do this your whole adress book on your phone is shared to facebook. It’s another trick to gather more personal information so be careful!

3.1.1 fixes the addy book issues.
Also, push is great, but it does suck up the juice.
I tested last night leaving on my Facebook push and while I’m not Paris Hilton, my FB is fairly active and the battery sure does discharge more quickly…
Good addition though!

I have a list of “better friends” that I keep above the “live feed” on the actual website. Facebook 3.0 used to default to my “better friends.”
My biggest gripe with 3.1 is that it is defaulting to the “live feed” now instead. Anyone find a setting or workaround for this?

I have my contacts synced to gmail, including their pictures. Will the facebook sync replace all of the pictures from gmail?
