4. Notes
5. Pages
6. Create new photo albums
7. Upload photos to any album
8. Zoom into photos

10. Profile Pictures albums
11. A new home screen for easy access to all your stuff, search, and notifications

14. Quickly call or text people right from the Friends page
15. Messages you are typing will be restored if you quit or are interrupted by a phone call

Push notifications are in development but won't make it into the 3.0 release. You can expect it in version 3.1

I hope we\'re now able to change our profile picture without having to go onto a computer.. this was so aggravating to me, and I\'m sure others.

This is amazing- And a time SAVER If Facebook gets push notification for their app- I will only check it when there\'s a notification! No more signing on to see if someone messaged me and then wandering about the site.

related/possibly unrelated question. I\'m running the current released app version of Facebook for iPhone. Much of the time, various Wall posts from friends will be duplicated in the News Feed Top Stories on the home page in the app. No rhyme or reason as to who or what type of entry... just sometimes the same exact entry will show up 5 or 6 spots down the page on the Top Stories list. This doesn\'t happen on the FB web page... it\'s something peculiar to the iPhone app. Just wondering if it\'s something I\'ve done, or a bug.

What? Waste Time? Isn\'t that what all humans are good at? \"The ignorance of how to use new knowledge stockpiles exponentially\" or \"One of the nicest things about being big is the luxury of thinking little\"
