Easy to browse News Feed

The news feed works the same as always, letting you scroll to read Facebook posts. You can use the buttons across the bottom to navigate the app's many features.

Nearby friends

A touch of the button on the top right of the interface brings up the people you can start messages with and it will open the separate Facebook Messenger app automatically. But at the top, you can also view nearby friends that are in your area right now.
