We have recently heard that a new version of Facebook for BlackBerry is available via the BlackBerry Beta Zone, Facebook 2.0 (Facebook 2.0.0.19) has been developed by RIM and is a major improvement when compared to previous versions.

When you compare current versions of Facebook for BlackBerry to iPhone and Android versions you will realize just how much BlackBerry users are missing out on, however once you have installed Facebook 2.0 you will notice many significant changes which bring things up to scratch.

After installing Facebook 2.0 beta you will initially see a new login screen, once in you will see a completely new layout which allows for much more functionality, there will be Facebook Chat functionality built-in, enhanced integration with BlackBerry OS, the ability to see mutual friends and much more.

All in all this updated software version should give users a much richer Facebook experience, because let’s face it the current Facebook for BlackBerry applications are far from perfect.

You can find out more about the Facebook for BlackBerry 2.0 beta over at CrackBerry, you can even download it if you agree RIM’s long-list of licensing agreements (you have to register with the BlackBerry Beta Program), just remember that it is a beta release, therefore there may be some problems with it.

Have you installed Facebook 2.0 for BlackBerry? If so, are you impressed?
