Default New Facebook Version 1.6

Please Login to Remove!

How do I update the current facebook app on my phone? I tried doing this through Desktop Manager but could not figure it out.

A more streamlined Facebook for BlackBerry | The Download Blog - Download.com

It's only been about a month and a half since RIM released the last update to Facebook for Blackberry (and then a fix to that update just after that), and BlackBerry's maker has already come out with a more streamlined version of the popular social networking app it codeveloped with Facebook's help.

Facebook for BlackBerry 1.6 folds its status feed content, originally in its own screen, right onto the home page. The result is immediate access to view your friends' status update, and a slightly quicker way to update your own status message. The same goes for poking a friend or commenting on their photos.

In addition, the app update removes some of the hassle in the previous version of getting to your pal's Wall. Instead of having to switch to the mobile site to view it in its glory, a click to your buddy's profile picture shows you their wall within the application itself. Facebook for BlackBerry 1.6 also shows photo albums in a modified slideshow ticker format. In the past, you needed to click on each thumbnail to see the image; now you can scroll.

The final change is added support for Thai, Indonesian, and Portuguese (European) languages.

Get Facebook for BlackBerry 1.6 for free on your BlackBerry--running version 4.2 of the operating system or higher--by pointing the mobile or desktop browser to BlackBerry - Facebook for BlackBerry Smartphones.

Okay I deleted my facebook via Desktop Manager and then went to blackberry.com/facebook to redownload the new version.... I guess I just thought there should have been an option to update version 1.2 to 1.6 without deleting/reinstalling but I guess not.

You do not need DM to delete applications off your phone.

Go to Options > Advanced Options > Applications > Delete [facebook]

Download facebook on your mobile browser

Restart

Viola!
