UPDATE: Facebook 2.0 is Now Ready for Download in the App Store [iTunes link]
Facebook is heralding the fact that their 2.0 release set for September, will bring their otherwise frustrating current version much closer to matching all of the authentic functionality of the Facebook website. A show-and-tell preview page is ripe with life-sized iPhone photo samples displaying the new hotness.
Notifications will be viewable on the Home tab, with new notifications arriving in real-time while the app is running. Notifications are being prepared by the Face heads to rock with the release of Apple's new push notification service, allowing Facebook to deliver notifications to your iPhone even when you're not running the app. Version 2.0 appears to be a wet dream for the waiting faithful.
A commenter wrote; "Now this is what the app should be like, with this I won't be forever switching from the app to Safari and back again."
Most of the comments on the Facebook 2.0 preview page are gleefully positive coming from the serious iPhone Facebookies. Except for one doofus who appears to be getting ostracized by the "cooler kids" who really understand the deeper meaning of Facebook. He was group beaten into pulp for making a few dumbass comments. Not much has changed since High School. Thankfully Facebook 2.0 has.
