iPhone users who download the update will start to see chat heads pop up over the next couple of weeks, Facebook says.

My Opinion : The news feed is cleaner and smarter, but the Facebook chat heads are not very useful for iOS users because they only appears when you are inside the Facebook app, While on Android they can appear on your Home screen or any other app. The whole point of chat heads on Android is the ability to use them inside any app or anywhere on your phone. If you have to be inside Facebook app it is pointless.What do you think ?
