BlackBerry Playbook Facebook app gets Groups update

RIM has introduced a new update to the Facebook app for its BlackBerry Playbook tablet, adding Facebook Groups and improving video and photographic capabilities.

Facebook for BlackBerry PlayBook version 2.1 is available for the PlayBook tablet and includes the following improvements:

Facebook Groups – Share and interact with groups on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. View groups you are members of; post updates, photos and videos; view profiles of group members and send messages; get notified of new group posts and interactions.

Improved Media Access – Easily view friends’ photos and videos from users’ Profiles with the added new photo and video buttons. The photo and video uploading capabilities are also now more apparent on the Photo tab. Simply click the Photos or Videos button to upload the corresponding media type.

You can download Facebook for BlackBerry PlayBook v2.1 from the BlackBerry App World, although RIM has confirmed it may take 24 hours for the app to appear.
