Facebook began the process of rolling out file sharing for groups today, allowing you to share files of most types up to 25MB. This might be useful for the average Facebook user who doesn’t want to leave the service to send someone a file, but there are several other services we think are much better.
If you want to share files quickly, check out Ge.tt. It allows you to send a link to the file before it even finishes uploading so you can just get the upload started and forget about it. If you want a more group-friendly service, however, Dropmark is fantastic. It has plenty of awesome collaboration features which you can learn more about here.
Facebook Rolls Out File-Sharing for All Groups | Mashable
What do many users often request from the Facebook mobile app development team? A faster, less bloated experience for starters. And a way to theme it would be nice as well. Whether it is small bug fixes or big feature omissions, there are a lot of users who are frustrated and dissatisfied with the official Facebook application. Now, those users have a second option.
XDA Forum Member taomorpheus has created a Facebook application dubbed Fast Facebook, which looks to fill in the gaps where the old Facebook left off. It promises a much faster and smoother Facebook experience, without sacrificing any of the features. It even includes a few features that the standard Facebook application lacks.
Fast Facebook can be themed. Unlike other themed versions of the Facebook application, there are theme packs for Fast Facebook that allow users to change the look themselves and upload their own backgrounds from their photo gallery. Think desktop wallpaper, but for Facebook. The application also features pretty much everything you’d need in a Facebook app, including the chat function, usual notifications, posting on walls, and so on. The application’s big claims to fame, however, is how it is designed to be streamlined and run more quickly and is based on Android 4.0 design language. It is a beta, though, so expect there to be a few bugs when roving around. taomorpheus is working hard to iron them out but a beta is a beta.
More information, screen shots, download links, change logs, and feature lists are available in the google play. Go get your Facebook on in a different way.
