Facebook for BlackBerry 1.6 Now Available!


Good news Facebook users! RIM just gave us an update on Facebook 1.6…
The new version will go live this evening at 6 p.m. (PST). Anyone can access it from their BlackBerry Browser ( http://www.blackberry.com/facebook/mobiledownload ) or from the desktop at www.blackberry.com/facebook.
Here’s a highlight of new features:

  • Status updates and highlights on the home page – you can now view your friends’ most recent status updates right on the home page. Highlights like photo uploads and wall posts are just a click away and you can comment on a photo, poke a friend, etc. right from the home page.

  • Photo viewing in a simple, easy-to-use slideshow format – check out your friends’ latest photo albums with improved photo viewing, and view albums in a simple and easy-to-use slideshow format. Just scroll back and forth through the thumbnails along the bottom to display the larger picture in the center of the screen.
