“The Facebook 10.0.1 allows you to discover if your Facebook friends are nearby. You’ll be able to see when they’ve checked in on Facebook to a location that’s close to where you are,” a press release stated.
The mobile’s Facebook application also allows the user to keep track of their events, inviting friends to attend and creating and viewing posts on the event’s wall.
Photo updates is also another Facebook feature in which users can easily “add photo tags to photos they’re uploading” within the application.
“Plus if you like that photo or funny picture your friend just shared on Facebook, you now have the ability to save Facebook photos locally on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone.”
“Sharing” is another distinctive feature on the newly enhanced Facebook application, which “makes it easier than ever to share what matters to you with all of your contacts,” the release explained.
Using the BlackBerry 10, users can now share links from their Facebook newsfeed to the BlackBerry’s BBM messenger, email, SMS, Facebook Twitter, LinkedIn, and others.
BlackBerry 10 also allows its users to view all their interactions on the Twitter application in one place, including follows, favourites and mentions.
“Twitter 10.0.2 allows you to take a look at photos, article summaries and other updates within your Tweets, and see the number of times a Tweet has been favourited,” the statement concluded.
