In the US version of the app, the social network has added search and invite friends buttons.

For Android, Facebook has added the following new features:

  • Like posts, photos and Pages when you’re offline
  • Remove tags you’ve created
  • Remove tags of yourself that your friends have created
  • Turn post notifications on and off
  • Improvements to speed and reliability

Being able to remove tags that your friends have created is a wonderful way to make sure some of the more embarrassing things you did last night don’t end up in your Timeline.
