    Just got the notification of the update. Does not seem to be much changes to be a big update. Anyone notice any big changes?

    Nothing big so far. It seems like they fixed an issue I had where if I clicked on a picture or link, when I went back I would be 4 or 5 posts away from where I originally selected. Other than that, it seems the same.

    Nope, seems not obviously different.

    Don't put so much weight on deciphering version numbers. There is no law that it has to make sense.

    No visual changes but seems a fraction slower. I only updated because it mentions 'speed improvements' :-/

    The only "larger" changes mentioned in the what's new section seem to be some sort of a redesign around posting for the iPad. Other things mentioned seem to be on the smaller and/or non-visibile side of things.

    There's always the "Paper" app from Facebook as well.

    I forgot about that app. Haven't tried it yet. Is it worth trying?

    i agree but there is an unwritten rule that when the number before the "." is moved higher that there are more major/visual changes than minor ones/bug fixes.

    facebook 8.0 doesn't seem to be a major update.

    Facebook 7.0 was released just weeks ago with just "bug fixes" and nothing else it seems. So far it looks like Facebook just kind of took the whole version numbering system and threw it in the garbage simply assuaging a new major version to pretty much every release no matter what it is (even just some bug fixes).

    Every time i see updates for facebook I'm hoping bug when i tap on the post or picture "I don't want to see this" it still stays. I'm guessing that they don't consider this as a bug. But for me its most annoying bug.

    I hate the way that 'most recent' always needs to be selected. Facebook refuses to remember my newsfeed preferences.

    Not quite. While Chrome increases its version more often than most apps there's more logic there behind it and more in the version number down to build number that does get increased with bug fix and other smaller releases.
