RIM announced yesterday on their Facebook page that they have launched a new Facebook app to add your BlackBerry Messenger PIN barcode to your Facebook profile page. This might be the first step of the “Exciting things” RIM has promised for BlackBerry Messenger. I am not sure why you would want to do that but it does raise awareness about the QR BlackBerry Messenger barcode feature.
You can add the BB_Generator Facebook app to your profile at this link. You simply enter in your BlackBerry PIN and the app will generate a barcode for your PIN. You can then make it you Facebook profile page or feature it on your Facebook page. I am not sure why you could not just put your PIN number in the profile page but it cant hurt to have options. 🙂 The irony is that this feature would have probably fit in better with RIM’s own MyBlackBerry social network.
