Facebook 1.7 Released – Improved Caching & More

Facebook1.7 I was out with a nasty virus for the last few days and missed this little update from RIM. They have updated the official Facebook application to version 1.7.0.18.

You can pick up the update at m.facebook.com or www.blackberry.com/facebook and also in the App World.

New in this version:

  • News Feed Support – The ability to set the News Feed as the landing page
  • News Feed Filters – The ability to toggle between ‘News Feed, Status Updates, Photos & Links’
  • Caching Improvements – The application uses the device memory more efficiently.
  • Feed Pre-fetching – The user will not be required to wait while their Facebook Feeds are updated
  • View Profile Menu Option – Clients may easily view their own profile by selecting ‘View my Profile’ from the menu. "

Thanks to Kinjalkumar, Nick, & DavidH for sending this one in!

  1. I am not noticing to much difference here, but have really been relying on Socialscope for my facebook updates since it handles my tweets and facebook in one, we do need more facebook functionality though

  2. The only reason I use FaceBook on my Bold is for the mobile photo uploads, otherwise, I’d drop it to create memory space!

    Sparty1216 = Twitter

  3. Why i keep disconnected when trying to login with 1.7?

    Anybody has the same problem?

  4. @Frederick Just in case, do you have any other app in your BB connecting to facebook like SocialScope or IM+? It could be more than one app is fighting to login to your account.

    Hope this helps
