    I found an interesting thing while playing with the Facebook Beta App today. I was able to get the App into landscape and use it that way.

    Here are the steps to reproduce the "bug".

    1.) Open Facebook Beta
    2.) Open Photos
    3.) Chose an album that has at least 2 photos in it
    4.) Open first photo
    5.) Rotate phone to landscape (either direction)
    6.) Swipe right to left to next photo
    7.) Without turning phone, use gesture area to preform "back" gesture twice
    8.) ...
    9.) Profit!

    Now enjoy Facebook in landscape! Unfortunately, you can't rotate back to portrait without going through the steps in reverse, or closing and reopening the Facebook Beta App.

    I'm sure this will be "fixed" in the next release of the Beta, but until then... enjoy! hahaha

    EDIT: Here's a screenshot...

    That seems to have been taken out of the Beta... but doesn't have to do with the landscape trick.

    I could see how that would be unsettling.

    Why can't they just make this part of the standard I actually like it this way?
    "Glen honey, I got a question for you. What do you do for a living?
    "I got a question for you. Why are you still here?"

    Landscape usage has been suggested by many people... hopefuly it is something they'll add in future updates.

    @-Gamah: haha I didn't before, but I do now.

    That's right... just a well hidden Easter Egg for those of us lucky enough to find it.

    I had the same thing happen to me, so I wrote Justin (one of the devs) on the FB page and landscape ISN'T a bug! Its a feature that's coming and he joked saying it was "a little incomplete" LOL. So it should be included in the next update of FB! Woo Hoo

    Glad to hear official landscape support is in the works. I personally feel just about all apps should have it.

    Do you have the Beta version, or the regular Facebook app?

    This particular bug/trick/feature only works in the Beta. If you do have the beta, try following the steps again, particularly, steps 5-7 should be done fairly quickly. You can also try scrolling through more than one picture while in landscape before doing the "back" gesture.
