If you're looking to try out a new Facebook on your BlackBerry OS device, you can log into the BlackBerry Beta Zone right now and grab the latest update. After you download the beta, you'll be on v188.8.131.52 and it includes quite a few changes, especially to the news feed views, user profile and more. You can jump below to see the full changelog or head on over to the BlackBerry Beta Zone and grab the download.

New look and feel for your User Profile:

Assuming this one passes all the beta testing, I'm sure it will see a public release soon enough. If you're hesitant about loading a beta, you can pass on this one and wait for the public release.
