Ok this smacks of “if apple had created a Facebook app” and from what read, apple expatriates were on the team building this at Facebook.

First, start with the splash screens and the VoiceOver. You see a iPhone 5s in it. Then the simple drag and drop to choose categories…off a wheel. The the simple swipe gestures to open and close an article. It’s brilliant.

Now re-presenting people’s updates in the same metaphor as the links to articles! This creates the option for content creators to blog right from Facebook to their closed circle…because that content is treated as first class content.

I tried linked’s version of this called pulse. Honestly it didn’t make me want to dump the regular LinkedIn app. This kinda makes me flirt with never opening the Facebook app again.

Now if they only came out with the full iPad version of the app, instead of just the phone app.

Kudos
