Yesterday evening, Facebook pushed out its new Facebook for Android design to a broader audience, bringing a new look and feel to an Android device near you. Following its first Beta appearance in November, it seems that Facebook is now ready to give the new flat and somehow more Holo design to the public. Compared to the previous design, things changed a little bit. For instance has Facebook removed the slide-in menu on the left, only the Facebook Chat stays on the right, right next to the new search button. With the design change it's now possible to slide through the main menus in an Android Holo way, starting on the left with the News Feed, followed by Friend Requests, Messages, Notifications and More which includes Favorites, Pages, Groups, Apps and Settings.

The Status, Photo and Check In buttons moved to the bottom and will appear dynamically, releasing the screen estate for more info; quite similar to how Twitter is handling it as well with their latest Android update..

According to the Facebook Android Beta page, this is a general release and the Beta is now closed. So it's expected that Facebook's latest design changes will hit all/most (compatible) Android handsets as v4. anytime soon.

Cheers ~ Arne
