A huge update for the iOS Facebook app (Free) released today adds some features users have been waiting for, along with other fixes and tweaks to the interface.

Among the major new features, the updated iOS Facebook app is supposed to improve sharing options, add tagging of friends and places in posts, tweak the design of both Profile and Group walls, and provide added privacy controls on posts that match your settings on the Web site.

Smaller refinements and bug fixes include faster notification speeds, bug fixes for Facebook chat, changes to filter selection in the News Feed, tweaks to the notification bar, and general improvements to performance and stability.
