The update to their Android app sees Facebook introducing a slew of new features that now work in-app, so users are less likely to be hoiked out of the app and dumped on to the Android browser to perform certain certain functions.

Video’n’RSVP

The new version  now supports video playback, and includes the ability to view and RSVP events and respond to friend requests without leaving the app.

There’s also a snazzy updated home page too, featuring a draggable notifications drawer, a horizontally scrollable photo strip for flicking through friends’ photos and videos, and the ability to post a status update or search for friends with a single click.

Facebook for Android is free and available in the Android Market.
