I was starting to write an article about the Facebook for BlackBerry app when I headed to their application page on Facebook. The first thing that I noticed was that the application is being actively used by over 18 million users a month. Pretty impressive right?
Then I noticed something else…
It seems like people from all over the world are posting their BlackBerry PIN numbers on the Facebook for BlackBerry wall. You would think there would only be a few but every minute another pops up. I guess the wall has become a pretty popular BBM meeting place!
This got me thinking into how RIM could capitalize on this. Imagine if RIM would let you setup a profile just like AOL back in the day with their chat rooms. You could then find like minded individuals who are bored just like you… What do you think? Should RIM add a “Find me a friend” option in BBM? How about public chat rooms?
