Facebook improves mobile options

Here‘s yet another example of social media catering to the mobile world of smart phones. Facebook has announced updates to its Android and iPhone Apps, which is important to journalists trying to keep up with the rapid pace that online journalism had created. One of the big additions is the “Places” component, which lets users update where they are at any given time. This is an interesting option for journalists who may be updating with breaking news or events because they can now publish exactly where it is happening and make it easy for readers to see a map of that location.
