New Facebook App Update for BlackBerry: Discover BBM friends and start a BBM chat

News

BBM integration with Facebook for BlackBerry

For all of you readers out there who use the Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones app, today is your day. We’ve updated the app to version 3.3, loaded it up with new features, and increased BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) connectivity. You’ll also appreciate the new look and feel with refreshed icons and navigation. All these changes are designed to keep you connected and help build your social network. Let’s dive in.

NOTE: Please be aware that it may take up to 24 hours for the app to be available in the BlackBerry World storefront.

BBM Integration

Invite a Facebook friend to BBM

Discover and add BBM friends and initiate BBM chats right from within the Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones app. Better yet, launching a BBM chat is seamless so you can easily chat with your friends about their latest updates.

Share your PIN

Share your PIN on Facebook for BlackBerry

You can now share your BlackBerry PIN with Facebook friends and discover which of your Facebook friends also have BBM. Try it out and watch your social network grow. Once you’ve discovered who’s on BBM, just tap on the new BBM icon to invite them to become a contact. Simple!

Un-Friending

We all know the type – that one person on your list who is constantly oversharing. You can now easily un-friend someone directly from within Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones. Perfect for dropping newsfeed hogs while on the go.

Photo Redesign

Photo Redesign on Facebook for BlackBerry

Other than the BBM integration, this is my favorite feature because I love sharing and viewing photos on Facebook. This update gives you faster viewing of your photos, and at a higher resolution. You’ll also be able to view thumbnails of all of your photos for easier browsing, or full-screen photo viewing for when you want to get the big picture. Also, you can now save photos to your device/media card.

There you have it – be sure to swing by BlackBerry App World to download the update. As mentioned above, the app update could take up to 24 hours to appear in the storefront. Enjoy, and be sure to let us know what you love most about the new features in the comments.
