    Facebook 1.9 Update Now Available


    Facebook for BlackBerry version 1.9.0.12 has been in the BlackBerry BetaZone for awhile and has now emerged as version 1.9.0.20 an official release. Some of the new features include Facebook Places, improved search, Friends list update, and enhanced UI elements. Don't be surprised if you do not see the new version show up right away, RIM like to roll out updates in waves and i am guessing that is so their severs don't get overwhelmed.


    Here are some of the new features and enhancements:


    Facebook Places

    • Check in, add a Place and tag friends
    • Check in to Facebook Places within a 1.25 mile radius of your location
    • Select a Place from the available Nearby Places or add a Place if location does not already exist in the Places database
    • Tag a friend upon check in, and include a comment


      View Places where friends have checked in
    • View Places, “Here Now”, “Nearby” and “Elsewhere”, that friends have checked in to
    • “Like” or add a comment to friends’ check ins
    • Check ins will appear in the News Feed


      GPS and BB Maps Integration
    • View a map of the location you’re checking in to and get directions to and from friends’ locations


    Search
    • Perform a search for People and Pages within the application
    • Find mutual friends and view their profile thumbnails by searching for individuals and pages; send them a friend request, a message or a poke.
    • View pages in the Friends list and News Feed, and elect to become fans of pages
    • Pull Facebook results using the Unified Search application on BlackBerry 6 smartphones


    Friends List Update
    • View friends’ profile pictures as well as their Pages from the Friends list.


    UI Elements
    • Use the redesigned navigation bar to easily view your own profile, and click on the Search and Message icons


    If the update is not showing up in App World, you can go to the My World section and type in from your keyboard holding down the ALT key and type RST to reset App World.

    I have been asked to upgrade by the app on my BB.
    I try and complete it but after it takes me to the download site it says there is no version for my Torch..... yet

    I return to the app and i am forced to answer one of either

    Upgrade (which we know it doest do)
    or
    Later - which closes the app.

    So I can no longer use Facebook for BlackBerry!!!

    What tosh!

    OK I have upgraded via the desktop and it works fine.
    I dont understand why it said that via the phone but it does.
    At least it now works.

    Ok, so there is a new "places" tab that I didn't even see in the beta. I looked into it and I had two friends with locations. What is this because its not Foursquare. I hope my profile doesn't start posting those annoying check in posts. Does anyone know about this?

    This loads quicker than the beta but I feel the previous official version was the quickest.-could just be me?

    No chat feature that I have seen.........

    I had repeated problems trying to load this onto my S2. Could not do it over the phone and BBStore. Going back to older version.
