Facebook Messenger App for BlackBerry

Facebook has just released the BlackBerry version of its Messenger App. In case you forgot, this Messenger App was previously made available for iOS and Android. The app allows you to send messages to your Facebook friends easily even if any of your friends are not using an iPhone or Android phone. They will still be able to receive your messages via SMS, while your friends who own an iPhone or Android phone get to receive push notifications, chat messages and messages in their inboxes. The new BlackBerry Facebook Messenger app also brings in several new features not only to BlackBerry users but to users of other versions of the app. Specifically, the app will now let you see when a conversation partner is typing, view online statuses of your friends and quickly add your top Facebook friends to new or ongoing thread. The app also now supports additional languages. Facebook Messenger app is now available on the Blackberry App World as a free download. The new version of the app has somewhat brought it in comparison with the web-based version of Facebook chat.
