1st-gen-appletv-100750790-largeTech companies (especially Apple) want us to use the latest products the company has to offer. They want to make money from the sales, but they also develop and implement new technology that older devices can’t support at all (or can’t support it in a way that’s acceptable to the user).

Did you know that Facebook recently allowed users to make free calls to friends at the leading social network using its application tailored for iPhones or iPads.

An updated Facebook “app” for the popular Apple mobile devices shows when friends are online and then gives the option of ringing them up by tapping an icon on the screen.

Calls are routed over the Internet using telecom service data plans or connections to Wi-Fi hotspots. Facebook introduced a version of the feature earlier this year in its messenger program.

Upgrades in the Facebook 5.5 app included a button designed to make it easier to “like” online content and post comments at the social network.
