  • Facebook For BlackBerry v2.0 available in Beta Zone

    Research In Motion seems to be keep proving to us that the Leaked 2011 Software Roadmap was accurate, with the recent launch of Facebook v2.0 in Beta Zone.

    This application bring forth a major facelift to the application, making it feel similiar to it's iOS & Android counterparts.

    (NOTE: though this version is currently only available for OS 6.0 users)

    The new features in Facebook v2.0 include:

    • Facebook Chat
      Check to see which of your Facebook Friends are online and start a Chat conversation from within the Facebook application or the BlackBerry Message list.

    • Improved News Feed
      Post photos to your Wall, add an update, or check in to a Facebook Place from the News Feed. Improved News Feed interactions let you scroll through your News Feed without accidentally clicking ‘Like’, simply click the ‘More’ button (+) to interact with your friends’ posts.

    • New Drop-Down Navigation Grid
      Introducing a whole new way to navigate the Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones application, we’ve moved from a static navigation bar to a drop-down navigation control that is scalable to support new features in the future.

    • Notifications Bar
      Borrowing from the BlackBerry 6.0 “Today View”, the notifications bar offers an easy way to access your Facebook Notifications, Messages, Friend Requests and Chats from anywhere in the Facebook application.

    • External Notifications
      You don’t have to leave the Facebook for BlackBerry app to see what’s new on your BlackBerry smartphone. The BlackBerry external notifications header lets you see when you’ve received a new email message or BlackBerry Messenger message without having to leave the Facebook application.

    • New Profile UI and Profile Information Viewing
      The New Profile UI now provides Wall, Info, and Photo tabs for an even better browsing experience. New to v2.0 is the ability to view key information on Profiles and Pages such as contact info, basic info like birthday, hometown and relationship status, and likes and interests.
