Facebook app now lets you untag yourself from photos, perform more functions while offline


If you were ever tagged in an unsightly selfie or just wish to keep your tagged photos clean, the latest Facebook application update will help you out. In addition to just removing tags from your own photos, you can untag yourself from any other photo. This will save people from some embarrassment for sure.

Another part of this update builds upon a new feature that arrived in May. A lot more can be done while offline. Previously, users could only compose posts while disconnected from an internet connection. Posts would then be published once a connection was found and restored. Now users can hit Like on posts, photos, and pages while without an internet connection. Again, upon returning, the action will be pushed through once back to normal.

Two other smaller updates included are post notifications (toggling on and off) and speed/performance improvements. All welcome additions to the Facebook app.
