Facebook Adding Trending, Games Modules To Ipad App - Inside Facebook

The trending news feature, currently on desktop , will be added to Facebook for iPad, as well a place showing trending videos (popular clips among people of the users demographic). The app will also showcase popular games their friends are playing, as well as games the user has already connected with. Facebook Software Engineer Victor Medeiros described this addition in a blog post: In the latest update to Facebook for iPad in the US, were testing new ways to help people discover more timely and entertaining content on tablet. This update will surface content on the right-hand side of the iPad thats relevant to how people use tablets today, which is primarily to read news, watch videos and play games. More than 70 percent of people who use Facebook for iPad worldwide played a Facebook-connected game in the past 90 days. So were also dedicating a section of the iPad app to games people play, and over time, we will include ads where game developers can engage players. These will only be displayed when the iPad is rotated to landscape. Readers: What do you think about the new features?
