Facebook for iPhone adds 3D Touch actions

Facebook recently updated its iPhone app with support for 3D Touch. It’s no surprise the social network is getting on board — Instagram, owned by Facebook, was one of the first companies to provide third-party support for 3D Touch on Apple’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

The updated Facebook app offers similar functionality to Instagram. With a forceful touch on the icon, users will be presented with a small menu to either quickly write a post, take a photo or video, or post a photo or video. Instead of launching into the default start screen of Facebook, selecting any of those options will quickly take you right where you need to go within the application.

The update is live in the iTunes app store now, though remember you’ll need to have one of Apple’s newest iPhones in order for the 3D Touch functionality to work.
