Facebook for BlackBerry 2.0 was released a while back, but it was only available for OS 6 users. Today it has been updated with some major changes, including support for OS 5. Here’s the change log:

  • Support for BlackBerry OS 5.0
    • The beta app now supports BlackBerry smartphones with BlackBerry OS 5 and above.
  • Facebook Chat Enhancements:
    • Know when a friend is typing a message by the visual cue of “is typing a message”
    • Filter Online Contacts to quickly find a specific friend and start a Chat message.
  • Mutual Friends and Friends List
    • Discover which friends you have in common with other users via the Info tab on Profiles (dependent on Privacy Settings of the user).
  • Enhanced integration with BlackBerry native apps
    • Click on PINs, Phone Numbers, and email addresses displayed in Wall posts, messages or the Info tab, to perform the respective action (e.g., place a call) or save the information to your BlackBerry Contacts application
