Facebook is one of the largest social networks of all time. It also includes big names like Instagram and WhatsApp, so it’s safe to say that you likely interact with one or more Facebook apps each day.
Today we are going to talk about Facebook in particular. The Facebook website was released seventeen years ago, and it changed a lot in the meantime. The Facebook app is somewhat younger, as it was released after Android was introduced. Still, the Facebook android app was released more than a decade ago.
Facebook is beneficial for keeping in touch with your friends and staying up to date on your favourite celebrities.
You can send messages, start audio or video calls and more! Socializing is very important for us, humans, particularly during the challenging times of the pandemic.
However, Facebook is an app like any other. It comes as an .apk file, and the developers are constantly looking out for problems with the app to fix. Therefore, Facebook receives updates every now and then. Some introduce new features or change the app’s looks, while others tweak some parameters or get rid of some bugs.
Nevertheless, updating Facebook is a must. It has just reached version 318.104.22.168.70. The good news is that you don’t have to manually update it, as long as you keep the “auto-update” option of your smartphone-enabled.
However, if you disabled it for some reason, you can go to Facebook’s page on the Google Play Store and manually update it.
Make sure that you download the update from Google Play and avoid other third-party app markets. Facebook has access to some data that may be sensible for you, including conversations. You wouldn’t want to download a corrupted version of the app.
