It amazes how important supporting Facebook on mobile devices has become. A phone (smart or otherwise) that does not work with Facebook is not competitive. A smartphone that doesn’t support the main features and activities creates a black mark for it. The once dominant BlackBerry has been losing ground in recent years. So, RIM really needs to keep up with providing enhancements like the ones in their Facebook app update.
Here’s what’s new in this 2.0 beta:
– Facebook chat
– Improved news feed (user interface changes)
– New navigation control
– Notifications bar for messages, chats, friend requests
– External notifications for non-Facebook incoming messages
– New profile user interface information viewing
