    • “These changes
      will help anyone who is on a poor Internet connection – even those whose
      network connectivity is generally good but who have intermittent connections in
      places like subways and tunnels, or at large events,” the company said in
      a blog post.

    • The changes will
      allow users to compose comments on posts even when they are offline. The
      comments will be published when the device regains Internet connectivity,
      according to a report by
      Gadgets360.

    • Facebook is also testing
      an update where the News Feed will show already downloaded stories that have
      not been viewed by users, and sort them according to relevance.
    •  
    • “When we receive
      new stories from the server when you’re back online, we load and rank those
      stories normally,” the blog post said. Earlier, users with slow Internet
      had to wait for the latest stories to load in the News Feed.
    •  
    • Facebook is also
      testing certain “improvements” that are supposed to keep stories up
      to date throughout the day, and is likely to unveil them once the current tests
      are wrapped up.
