Facebook persistent notification bar coming to an Android device near you

Facebook persistent notification bar coming to an Android device near you

Facebook is testing persistent notification bar as we speak, TheNextWeb is reporting. This, new way to inform people about cool things happening within their network is already live in a small circle of Facebook employees but chances are the feature will soon be available to every Android user in the world.

As you can see for yourself, this notification features user’s profile photo along with the latest info you should know. If you have a nice image — or even better, if you change it often — you’ll like this. Otherwise, you may start hating yourself. ;)

Perhaps there will be an option to turn this off. I would assume something like that will be feasible though we’ll have to wait a little longer to find that out. Hopefully, we’ll also see some other changes introduced with the next update, cause this “notification thing” seems too minor. Or so I think…

    I’ve not updated the Facebook app for quite some time. It wants too many permissions, like being able to read my SMS.
    Any good alternatives that don’t have such permission creep?
