Facebook for Android and iPhone updated with support for Groups and Places

Hey Android fans! Tired of your handset’s Facebook app feelin’ all old and busted compared to its iPhone counterpart? Good news! For once, you’re getting an update at the same time! (..Sort of.)

You see, Facebook just pushed version 1.4 of their Android client live to the Android Market, complete with support for their new Places and Groups features.

Just minutes later, Facebook also pushed version 3.3.1 of the iPhone client to the App Store, complete with Groups support, improved support for Places (as the iPhone app already offered it), and support for Facebook’s just-announced location based Deals offerings.

So, yeah… Facebook’s Android offering is still lagging behind a bit. But hey, progress is progress right?
