RIM seems to be on a roll today, updating FaceBook on their phone line and now on the PlayBook. Just a few minutes ago RIM started to push the update out for BlackBerry handhelds and now it looks like RIM is bringing the PlayBook version to v2.0 as well.

New features include:

  • Facebook Places – Users choose to share where they are, what they are doing and who they are with – with Facebook friends. Get directions to and from a Facebook Places by clicking on the map image, which will seamlessly launch the Bing! Maps on the BlackBerry Playbook.
  • Facebook Events – View events and birthdays and receive notifications of new invitations. View event details like the time, place, guest list and more. Users can even RSVP and write on the event’s Wall.
  • View ‘Likes’ – See the names of the friends that ‘liked’ a user’s post. Users will also be able to tap their friends’ names to launch directly to their profiles.
  • Privacy control on status updates – Control who can see each update users share. Simply click the lock icon in the lower-right corner of the status publisher to select who to make the status update visible to before posting it.

Start opening up App World on your PlayBook to see if the update has made its way to you.
