Facebook for BlackBerry smartphone users, get excited. The Facebook app for BlackBerry smartphones has been updated to version 4.0 and brings some exciting new features that are designed to make it easier for you to stay connected to your friends and family. If you use a BlackBerry smartphone running BlackBerry OS 5 or above, here are some of the new features you can expect.

Facebook v4.0 for BlackBerry smartphones highlights:

  • • Stay connected with friends and discover content quicker with greater navigation tools and an enhanced photo experience.
  • • Enhanced navigation – a brand new navigation list slides in from the left, allowing you to access your favorite tabs. For easier discovery and viewing, “Friends” and “Pages” now occupy separate tabs and unique notification drop downs including “Messages” and “Requests” replace the “Today” header.
  • • Better photo experience – You now have more photo options with the update to give you a richer experience. Enjoy full screen photo browsing, add or view tags of photos, and make selections with the Comment and Like buttons.
  • • Quicker access to updates – Get faster content updates by engaging the “pull down to refresh” option so you can check for the latest on “News Feed posts,” “Wall,” “Messages,” “Events,” and “Nearby” pages.
