Facebook for Android and Facebook Home have both received updates that bring some useful improvements.

First of all, the Facebook Android app now offers you the ability to change who can view one of your updates, be it a photo or status change. This can be quite useful, should you decide that you don’t want your boss to see where you’ve been out last night and why you’re tired.

You can also add more photos to a single message you’re sending, by using the + button. Of course, stability and memory improvements, as well as bug fixes, are also included.

As promised on launch, Facebook Home is getting its fair share of updates. The most important change is an app dock, that gives users easy access to their favorite apps. Four apps can be added to the tray, as you can see in the screenshot below.

This gives the launcher more of a “normal” Android feel, but it probably won’t bring Facebook Home more adopters than it already has.
