With the Facebook’s iOS app users will soon be able to press on links, profiles and more, in order to preview content without having to navigate away from their current spot using their 3D Touch feature, which is available in the latest Apple devices. The places where this can be used as follows : web links, profiles, Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups, Facebook Events, photos, profile pictures, and cover photos.
According to a Facebook spoke person said that, “We are excited to start rolling out support for 3D Touch in our iOS app so people can quickly and easily peek into a preview of anything they are interested in on Facebook, and pop into that content to see more,”
This new 3D Touch takes advantage of the new hardware’s pressure-sensitive screen to allow users to hard-press on items to preview content and then optionally act on it. For instance, a slight press on messages in the new iPhones ‘pops’ up a preview of the message without the user having to open the message. Facebook is currently testing the feature with a small group of users but it could take months before everyone gets the update.
