Latest major upgrade of Facebook 6.0 iOS app, released in April 2013, has a few designs tweaks
but the headline features are all about Facebook Messenger.
Basically, chat heads are small top bar that rollup with your friend’s Facebook profile photos when they send you messages.
Android phones and Android apps are little different, top bar is visible on the home screen and in any applicable.
On your iphone or ipad you will see chat heads facebook only when the messenger app is open.
When I tested Facebook 6.0 on both systems,
I found that the android chat heads feature is indeed far more convenient than on iPhone.
On iOS version you will receive a message an attractive way, popping up on the top bar of the app on iPhone or iPad. But as soon as you exit the ios app, top bar vanish, and it’s impossible to tell whether someone has messaged you.
The iOS upgrades will bring you stickers icons that turn a text-based smiley into a winky-face, among other things tochat heads facebook.
Right now, you can only send stickers icons from the iPhone ( and soon, Android chat heads), but you can receive them on any device.
In addition, the news feed on both iPhones and iPads now mimics the desktop version of news feed released in march 2013,
and creates the “personalized newspaper” environment that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg touted when showcasing the design.
Generally, the focus on images, articles, and places offers a more visually appealing way for iOS and android chat heads facebook to view the activity of your facebook friend’s.
