Facaebook has just updated its iPhone app with an abundance of new aspects and privacy features, many of which mirror recent embellishments to the main website.

Now Facebook for iPhone 3.5 offers users to tag friends and places in posts and share extraneous links from the web view. It also makes it convenient to manage who can view what posts, matching the enhanced controls now available on Facebook.com. The app also features redesigned ‘Profile’ and ‘Group’ walls, making both more streamlined and clean.

Facebook has also fixed several bugs and has made many performance enhancements.

On the other side, 9to5 Mac reports that Facebook has taken this update opportunity to recycle the Facebook for iPad code that accidentally leaked out in July. An official iPad app remains missing in action.
