A recent update to Facebook for iPhone has re-introduced a feature I loathe. When the app was new, the send button on the comment creation screen was positioned just above the keyboard. It was a real nuisance because I often accidentally hit it mid-sentence. The result was partial comments that confused those reading them (above).
The button was moved away from the keyboard with a subsequent update and I was happy. Now it’s back and I’m posting sentence fragments again.
Please, Facebook, put it back where it was. It’s a real hassle where it is now.
I’m watching Mark Zuckerberg discuss Facebook’s new Timeline feature at F8, and he mentioned his company’s desire to help people share “the most meaningful and important parts of your life.” Perhaps I follow uninteresting clods, but nearly everyone I know on Facebook restricts their wall updates to photos of food, their kids and fart jokes.
Are there people interested in sharing “the story of their lives” on Facebook?
I noticed this yesterday. Upon launching the app for the first time since updating, it prompted me to explore the Places feature by highlighting its icon. It’s similar to the highlighting Mac OS X offers when searching system preferences. I like it.
