Facebook For BlackBerry v2.0 Now Available For Smartphones & PlayBook   BBM Integration, Places, Chat & More!

I was wondering if Facebook would be part of today’s #BB7FanNight announcements especially since it was rumored to be launching today. RIM today announced the availability of Facebook version 2.0 for BlackBerry smartphones and the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. We already know all about Facebook 2.0 for BlackBerry smartphones since it was in the Beta Zone but today it’s available for everyone to download, not just members of the Beta Zone. Here’s the changelog for the PlayBook version’s update:

  • Facebook Places – Users choose to share where they are, what they are doing and who they are with – with Facebook friends. Get directions to and from a Facebook Places by clicking on the map image, which will seamlessly launch the Bing! Maps on the BlackBerry Playbook.
  • Facebook Events – View events and birthdays and receive notifications of new invitations. View event details like the time, place, guest list and more. Users can even RSVP and write on the event’s Wall.
  • View ‘Likes’ – See the names of the friends that ‘liked’ a user’s post. Users will also be able to tap their friends’ names to launch directly to their profiles.
  • Privacy control on status updates – Control who can see each update users share. Simply click the lock icon in the lower-right corner of the status publisher to select who to make the status update visible to before posting it.

For more info and to download Facebook 2.0 for BlackBerry smartphones or the PlayBook go to blackberry.com/facebook or search for it in BlackBerry App World.

RIM posted a few great demo videos of the new versions on their Inside BlackBerry blog which I’ve included below so check them out!
