Find friends who've updated their profile in the last 24 hours

Now when any friend updates their profile or status message, they will appear in the "Recently updated profiles" section on your Friends tab.

Friends are listed in this section until you've viewed their profile or for 24 hours if you don't view them. Now that it's simpler to see when your friends have made updates, it’s also easier than ever to reach out and check in with them.

If you feel like you've got a lot of friends making too many updates, don't worry. You can minimize the section any time by tapping the "^" button.

What's changed in 7.2.0? 

Before: A green dot in the upper-right corner of a profile icon indicated when friends had made updates.

After: In addition to the green dot, a "Recently updated profiles" section has been added.
