Facebook For BlackBerry 2.0

Research In Motion (RIM) has just announced the first beta release for the next major version of Facebook for BlackBerry, which features a redesigned user interface and incorporates a host of new features, including Facebook Chat.

The new Facebook Chat feature integrates with both the app and the unified mailbox. As long as your status is set to “online,” friends can send you notifications even if you aren’t using the app. Even better, within Facebook for BlackBerry 2.0, users can still get alerted about new BlackBerry Messenger messages or see when a new e-mail hits the inbox.

The team at RIM has also put a lot of work into improving the News Feed and how users can interact with it. Posts can be shared or liked from the feed and users can also publish their own photos and status updates or check into a Facebook Place directly from the News Feed.
