The Windows Phone Facebook app has just received a major update to include push notifications.
The updated Windows Phone Facebook app will now include push notifications for actions like messages, feed comments, photo tags, photo comments, tagged photo comments and more. The major advantage of the push notification is that you don’t have to dive into the app to know when things are going on.
Microsoft’s smartphone platform already had deep integration with this social network, as your Facebook contact info can be pulled in to your contacts lists. I still see the need for a standalone app for the social network though and it’s good to see it continue to receive improvements.
You can download the updated Windows Phone Facebook app from the marketplace here.
