WhatsApp isn’t the only app Facebook updated today: the actual Facebook app was also updated today, making it much easier to share and post on the iPad.

A scant month after Facebook rocked version 7.0 of its popular app, version 8.0 has now hit the App Store, featuring the following improvements:

• A simple way to see and choose a photo album’s audience

• An updated design that makes it easier to post and share on iPad

• Improvements for reliability and speed

The major change here is an update to the iPad version, which makes it easier to post. The big difference? Now when you post a status update in Facebook for iPad, or share someone else’s post, you can now immediately see who you’re sharing it with at the top of the compose screen.

A small update, but hey, it’s a slow news night. The new Facebook update is available now on the App Store here.
