Just this past week RIM updated Twitter for BlackBerry and now they’ve offered up an update to FaceBook as well. The new update brings a few bug fixes and speed improvements but it also brings some things like “Like” notifications, BBM integration and more, just check out the list below.
- Enhanced Notifications – Get Notified of ‘Likes’ We’ve made several improvements to notifications; the first is that you’ll be now be notified of polled items (that is, notifications that aren’t delivered through BlackBerry® push technology), such as ‘Likes’ and Event Wall posts. The notification will even tell you who and what was ‘Liked’, so you’ll never miss a beat in your social life. By default, polled notifications will be set to a one-hour frequency but you can check as often as you like by selecting Refresh from the Menu.
- Cross-Channel Messaging – Share Facebook Content across BlackBerry Messaging Applications
- Enhanced Integration with BlackBerry Native Apps – Building on enhanced integration with native BlackBerry smartphone apps, which was introduced with the Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones v2.0 beta refresh, Facebook v2.0 now includes additional messaging options from the ‘More’ button within a Profile and from the Friends list.
- In-App Error Reporting – If you haven’t already downloaded the BlackBerry Feedback Tool from BlackBerry App World, you can install it through the Menu in the Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones app. The BlackBerry Feedback Tool can be used to send feedback on BlackBerry smartphone features, functions and applications at any time and is currently available in English only.
- Touch Toolbar – BlackBerry smartphone users with a touch screen device will now have Compose, Reply and Delete icons located along the bottom of the device screen in the Facebook Inbox for quick and easy access to these popular features.
So if an updated version of FaceBook is something you’re looking for, make sure you checkout or sign-up for BlackBerry Beta Zone.
