Facebook redesigns mobile feed to make liking, commenting easier

Facebook updated the mobile version of News Feed this weekend so users can like and comment on posts with one tap instead of two.

Previously, users of Facebook’s iOS app, Android app and mobile touch site had to tap a “+” button that would bring up the like and comment options. Now the features are directly under each post, making interaction faster and easier.

Since the social network pulls News Feed from m.facebook.com into its native applications, changes like this can be made without requiring users to download a new version of the app.

Still absent from the mobile feed is the “share” button allowing users to repost content from their friends or pages. Sharing on the desktop version of the site has taken off since Facebook enlarged image thumbnails and began displaying the total number of shares, but users have not been able to take this action from their mobile devices.
