They can also add friends to a Favorites list, making it easier to access them for messaging. It also adds an activity notification, allowing users to see which friends are using the site and when they might expect a reply. The update also brings improvements to photo sharing, allowing for greater ease of sharing when dealing with multiple photos. For US users, the update brings Facebook Gifts, allowing users to give their friends real gifts.
