BlackBerry has just announced a new update to their Facebook app on BB10. The newest version brings some great additions to the most popular social network’s official BlackBerry 10 app. BlackBerry is adding Newsfeed sorting, emoji support and more with this new update. Facebook for BlackBerry 10.4 will be appearing in the BlackBerry World starting today. As always, the update may take up to 24 hours to show up for everyone, so if you don’t get it right off the bat, don’t stress.

Change log (Facebook v10.4)

  • Newsfeed Sorting – sort your newsfeed stories by ‘Most Recent’ or ‘Top Stories’.
  • Emoji Support (Emoticons) – use your favorite Emoticons (Smiley faces and others) in your conversations.
  • Screen Reader – photo tag support for photo carousel.
  • Adding Map view to Check-Ins – now see a map of the location you are checking in from.

I’m curious to see how the new emoticon support will work on Facebook. Will it be just like on Blaq for BlackBerry 10 that allows other BB10 users to see the actual emoticon while everyone else just sees the text input? Either way, we’re just happy to have a new update available.
