I have good news for Facebook® fans! A new upgrade for the Facebook for BlackBerry ® smartphones app has landed today in the BlackBerry App World™ storefront and I’d like to tell you all about it. As part of the Facebook v3.2 upgrade, you’ll enjoy some exciting new features, including:
Refreshed icons with a personalized touch
One of the first differences you’ll notice in the upgraded version is updated icons. The cool feature of note here is the personalized touch, as the generic profile icon has been replaced with your most current Facebook profile picture.
Never miss another friend’s birthday with enhanced birthday alerts
Facebook for BlackBerry v3.2 allows you to integrate the birthdays of your Facebook friends into your BlackBerry device calendar, providing you with a timely reminder to post a birthday message from your home screen – without even opening the Facebook app. And if this is too much or if you liked it the old way, no problem – that’s where the customization options come in handy.
In-app Facebook Event support puts you at the center of the party
With enhanced Facebook Event support in v3.2, you can now view information about an event, post a message to the event’s wall, view profiles of invited guests, and receive event notifications from your BlackBerry smartphone.
Head over to BlackBerry App World now to upgrade to Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones v3.2. Because let’s be honest — you’ll want to stay on top of all the details around that epic Halloween party being planned.
