Facebook 1.9

We’ve been wondering when Research In Motion was going to update Facebook for BlackBerry. I guess today, we now know. Facebook version 1.9 was just released to BlackBerry Beta Zone members and brings with it a lot of new changes and features:

  • Dedicated Inbox – View your Facebook messages in one separate inbox or within your BlackBerry messages inbox. The app pre-fetches 30 of your existing messages, and will then continue to sync messages on your BlackBerry smartphone with your Facebook inbox.
  • Facebook Search – Search for individuals and pages, making it easy to find mutual friends, add friends and “like” pages. For BlackBerry 6 users, Universal Search will pull Facebook results too!
  • Enhanced Friends List and Page List – View Friends profile photos and pages in list form
  • Redesigned Navigation Bar – View your own profile and click on the Search and Message icons with the new navigation bar

Keep in mind you must be a BlackBerry Beta Zone member in order to access the download and only a limited number of openings are available currently. So, you’ll wanna head on over to the BlackBerry Beta Zone quickly.
