The Facebook news feed is a waterway of communication, alerting you to every action your friends are taking on the social networking site. Now, an iPhone app called Facebook Focus puts the popular news feed in a tidy, compact package.

News feeds are now overrun with updates from applications and actions taken by friends, diversifying away from simple status updates. This feature is a matter of preference, but it is also reminiscent of the early days of Facebook, particularly for mobile users.

You can filter content for friends or the entire news feed. I appreciate the option for viewing your entire news feed, as the all-inclusive approach is similar to RSS readers used to track new content on blogs and Web sites. Facebook Focus tracks which news feed items have been read, so you spend more time interacting with social content instead of managing and monitoring your Facebook homepage. 

Having an application that is so specific to Facebook feeds can be limiting. So if you want more functionality beyond your Facebook news feed or rely on push notifications for Facebook news, the Facebook app for the iPhone may be better suited to your needs.
