    Not sure how many people use Facebook, but the web browser used to not be able to run it well at all.

    It would only be able to load like 10 things on the newsfeed, and when you would click "More stories" it wouldn't do anything.

    I tried it today (Haven't used the browser for Facebook in like 2 weeks) and they changed it to run much better. It's a lot more simple, and loads fast as hell.

    Like I said, not sure if many people here use Facebook, but I'm glad they changed it.

    I have an Android and an iPod Touch that I don't use...

    Not everyone has an iPhone or iPod sitting around.

    This.

    Also, has anybody tried uploading pics directly? Until recently, I have been able to do direct uploads, but Facebook changed that into something longwinded. Still possible, but you just have to email it to facebook instead of directly uploading from mobile devices (or the 3DS, in this case).

    Most browser's I've used usually automatically grab the m. (mobile) version if it's available. I thought the 3DS did the same? I haven't tried Facebook on mine yet, but I just tried it on my old Curve and it did it.

    It's cool to see they fixed it though.

    the 3DS' internet browser was made to view web pages much like a PC browser does, unlike mobile devices which default to mobile pages (exception are the iDevices; they all browse pages either in PC or in iPhone format.

    Come on, we all know Nintendo's stance on letting people socialize via their devices. :rolleyes:
