Using Facebook for iPhone and iPad is about teaching yourself the virtues of patience. It’s about learning that you don’t have to know what your friends are up to at any given moment. But these are, of course, unintentional lessons that Facebook isn’t really trying to teach us – they’re just results of the iOS apps being really bloody slow (and buggy).
However, the New York Times reports that Facebook should be getting a lot faster (at least on the iPhone) with an update later this summer. According to two anonymous Facebook engineers, the next major version of the app will focus less on crazy new features and more on speed.
Let’s hope they decided to fix notifications, as well.
