    2. Profile and wall viewing - view and comment on friends’ profiles and wall updates
    3. Improved photo viewing - view and comment on pictures
    4. Additional language support

    So Facebook junkies do these new features sound exciting? Drop a reply and let us know your thoughts.

    Of course it does, what would the Facebook app be without a memory leak.

    Since it's RIM news and other sites have placed it on their front page figured I would follow in kind. Plus it will get more exposure on the front page than in the 3rd party apps.

    Well I will be super surprised if it happens. Blackberry/RIM are ANTI-content. The entire goal of their OS is usually to NOT deliver content. Cases in point:

    - Facebook app which since inception has delivered ZERO content. You can POST to Facebook, but never get the content.

    - Web browser which spends a LOT of time "requesting" pages and not a lot of time actually showing you ... y'know ... content.

    - E-Mail which, until this past summer, had gone 10 years without displaying anything other than raw text.

    - Youtube app which provides 28.8k modem quality video with mono sound.

    Delivering content is antithetical to RIM's entire philosophy. So I for one will be completely shocked if this comes to fruition.

    I'm glad! This current version sucks! Some of the threads come over normal, some make you click a link, which doesn't take you anywhere near the thread.
