Facebook Beta for Windows Phone 8 now has anti-social features

In an effort to improve the Facebook experience on the tiled smartphone operating system, Microsoft just released a new update for its homebrew beta app which now finally allows Windows Phone 8 users to unfriend and unlike added folks and pages, respectively.

The latest Facebook Beta version (5.0.2.1) also fixes an issue which prevented the notification counts from updating and comes with the common "stability and performance" enhancements. The latest features will likely make their way to the stable Facebook app in a future update, after the obligatory testing is conducted.

Considering the fact that Microsoft released the first stable version, that is based on the beta counterpart, just two months after the latter was introduced, it's likely the latest slew of improvements will be added in the upcoming weeks.

Microsoft has yet to address one of my main complaints related to the Facebook Windows Phone 8 app -- the absence of a security code generator, which is a must-have feature when two-step authentication is enabled. And, in typical Facebook Beta fashion, the app still does not turn up in Store search results.

Facebook Beta is available to download from Windows Phone Store.
