As it turns out, Facebook wasn’t finished making headlines with Microsoft yesterday when the social networking giant agreed to purchase some $550 million worth of patents and other intellectual properties from Microsoft.
Today, we’re learning that Facebook’s deal with Microsoft has only just begun.
Facebook says it will soon unveil version 2.5 of its hugely popular mobile social networking application for Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform.
As the mobile platform used dramatically less for Facebook than iOS or Android, Microsoft stands to benefit dramatically from a revamped Facebook app for the Windows Phone. Such new features will include:
– Threaded messaging
Full Facebook threaded messaging including group messaging, all in a beautiful Metro style design.
Now you can tag friends and locations in your posts in the ‘with’ and ‘at’ format.
– Delete posts and comments
Use the tap and hold context menu to delete posts and comments from your wall.
Although it isn’t yet confirmed precisely when the refreshed app will be released, we’ve been told it’s coming soon.
