Facebook for BlackBerry PlayBook v2.0 adds on Places & Events features
Fortunately for any BlackBerry PlayBook owners out there, the official Facebook app for the tablet is being updated to version 2.0 and brings forth some exciting new features that further deepen its functionality.

Although it’s still very rare to find official tablet-optimized versions of the app on other platforms, PlayBook owners will now find popular features like Facebook Places and Events that further provide an engaging experience. With Places, users will be able to share locations with friends and even get directions to specific places with Bing Maps integration. Additionally, Facebook Events allows you to view and receive notifications of new invitations and get detailed information as well pertaining to the specific event.

Instead of seeing how many people “like” a certain post, you’ll now be able to actually view the actual names of friends who "like" it. And lastly, more control is given to the user seeing that there is now a new privacy control that allows you to maintain who can see each update users share.

If you haven’t done so already, you can download the update right now through the BlackBerry App World – or if you have a previous version, you’ll more than likely get a notification to update it.
