    Facebook 1.6 Going Live at 6PM Pacific Time (EDIT: It's Here!!!)

    Advertisement





    Well it was supposed to go live on May 28th, but that didn't happen, but according to BGR, Facebook 1.6 will go live at 6PM pacific time! Hopefully they postponed it to avoid some of the major issues users had after the initial release of 1.5. Fingers are crossed that 1.6 will be without major issues. Here is a list of some of the features to be expected:


    • Status updates and highlights on the home page – you can now view your friends’ most recent status updates right on the home page. Highlights like photo uploads and wall posts are just a click away and you can comment on a photo, poke a friend, etc right from the home page.


    • Wall access from within Facebook for BlackBerry – with one click on your friend’s profile picture from the home page, you can access their wall without having to go to the mobile site.


    • Photo viewing in a simple, easy-to-use slideshow format – check out your friends’ latest photo albums with improved photo viewing, and view albums in a simple and easy-to-use slideshow format. Just scroll back and forth through the thumbnails along the bottom to display the larger picture in the center of the screen.


    • Facebook for BlackBerry 1.6 will also support three new languages:
      • Thai
      • Indonesian
      • European Portuguese



    You can download it from the mobile.blackberry.com site and don't be surprised if the heavy traffic causes some delays in the download process.

    I didn't link my facebook app to my address book, calendar, or messages on 1.5 and won't on 1.6 either. No need for that at all!
