Facebook Places comes to BlackBerry

Facebook Places comes to BlackBerry

The Facebook for BlackBerry app has been updated to version 1.9 and comes with Places.

BlackBerry users now have more reasons to annoy people in their vicinity, as Facebook Places, a location-based service similar to Foursquare and Gowalla, has arrived on BB smarties enabling users to broadcast their current location to friends and stalkers alike.

Thanks to Places, BlackBerry owners will be able to use the handsets’ built-in GPS/A-GPS functionality to publish exactly where they are and who else is with them.

Aside from Places, the update also improves the built-in search, which now allows users to search for contacts and pages without leaving the app

The update requires handset be running BlackBerry OS 4.5 or higher. It is available for download right now from the BlackBerry App World applications marketplace.
