Facebook for BlackBerry allows you to stay on top of the social network from your BlackBerry device.
The application provides an attractive, compact user interface for browsing Facebook on your phone. You can check the news feed (filtering by status updates, photos or links, if you like), read and send messages, search for and add friends, and share your location with Places.
Another feature of Facebook for BlackBerry is the ability to capture and upload photos, or add them from your saved images. Unfortunately, it doesn't allow you to do the same with video at present.
The Facebook application integrates nicely with the BlackBerry operating system. For example, you can connect your Facebook account to your BlackBerry Calendar application, meaning Facebook events are automatically added here. You can also sync contacts and messages between Facebook and your BlackBerry, and get notifications at a scheduled time period.
Not the full Facebook experience
The software is great for checking and updating Facebook, although it doesn't give you access to the full gamut of features you can enjoy on the web version of the social network. For instance, you can't access Facebook applications on your BlackBerry, or access Facebook Chat.
Despite lacking the full social network experience, the official Facebook app for BlackBerry is still the most convenient way to use Facebook on your device.
What's new in Facebook?
Facebook has improved the user experience for photo uploads in the latest version of the app. You can now upload multiple photos to your News Feed, Timeline, Event/Groups; select photos from multiple albums on the device to upload in a single post; tag multiple photos in a status post or photo post; and choose an album when posting a status update with photos. You can also edit your status post.
