Facebook users already spend a lot of time on the network and soon they may have another reason to spend even more time pouring over posts and articles on the social network. This new attention-grabber may be an Instapaper-like feature that allows you to save articles to read at a later time.
Facebook has been updating its iOS apps, adding post editing and other features to the iPhone and iPad versions. The latest Facebook app to get the update treatment is the Facebook Messenger app which is now at version 3.0. This latest update brings a new look to the app and adds a few new features.

Today, Facebook released an update to the app (v6.7.1) with â€śBug fixes,â€ť but users are unable to download the update from the App Store.
Facebook released a minor update to its app yesterday that added the ability to edit posts on the iPad. But along with this new feature, Facebook seems to have introduced some bugs that is causing the app to crash on launch.
Facebook said it had some major changes coming down the pike for its iOS apps, and now some of those updates are starting to make their way to iPhone and iPad owners. The latest update landed on Thursday and brings post editing to the iPad version of the Facebook app.
While Facebook updated its main app with an iOS 7 design more than a month back, but its other popular app, Facebook Messenger, hasn’t seen a similar update. As it turns out, Facebook is working on a major redesign for Messenger on iOS and Android with a “flat” look, but its primary feature is to make the app more competitive with the likes of WhatsApp, Kik etc.
