There's a big update to Facebook for BlackBerry 10 and it brings it to v10.4. We last saw an update towards the end of January 2014 which brought the ability to tag friends on status updates and comments. BlackBerry seem to be working to bring a better experience to Facebook users on BlackBerry 10 and here we see another update.
What's new in v10.4?
- Newsfeed Sorting – sort your newsfeed stories by ‘Most Recent’ or ‘Top Stories’.
- Emoji Support (Emoticons) – use your favorite Emoticons (Smiley faces and others) in your conversations.
- Screen Reader – photo tag support for photo carousel.
- Adding Map view to Check-Ins – now see a map of the location you are checking in from.
I'm very glad to see the option to sort the news feed. This has been something I have been looking for since the beginning. The update is making its way around the BlackBerry World servers so if you're not seeing it yet, just keep checking back.
