Can’t get enough of the Facebook app on BlackBerry 10? Good news, we’ve released an update today that brings new features and enhancements designed to make it easier for you to connect with friends and family. The update is free to download from the BlackBerry World storefront.
I know that the Facebook app is definitely one that I have open all the time on my BlackBerry Q10 – and the refreshed look and new chat features, to me, make it better than ever. If you’re like me, I definitely recommend updating this app.
Facebook v10.2.1 for BlackBerry 10 smartphones includes:
- Facebook Chat – Stay up-to-date with your friends using Facebook Chat! See which of your friends are online, start a chat message, send photos in chat messages, and see when your messages are delivered and read. You can also see when a friend is typing a message, search within your chat list to find friends and groups, as well as edit your list of favorite chat friends.
- Facebook Messages – Message details now show when a message is sent.
- Quicker Scrolling in Newsfeed – While in newsfeed, click on the sidebar to scroll to the top of the newsfeed.
- Enhanced Photo Experience – Facebook 10.2.1 provides a new easier way of setting your Profile and Cover Photos. Set your Facebook profile photo or cover photo right from the Camera app, or from within a Facebook photo album.
- Enhanced Page Admin Functions – Page Admin has a new look and feel. As Page Admin, you can post updates, see the number of people talking about a page, view the number of likes a page has as well as see how many people checked in at a venue page.
- A Refreshed Look and Feel to your Pages – Facebook 10.2.1 offers an updated look and feel to your Pages to make navigation and communicating with your social network even easier. You’ll now be able to see how many of your friends have liked a page and how many people in total have liked a page.
