Facebook 2.1 for BlackBerry PlayBook adds groups functions

The Facebook application for the BlackBerry PlayBook has been bumped up to version 2.1 today, and includes the ability to interact with groups, including posting on the wall, uploading pictures, and viewing members. This is a great addition, considering the BlackBerry smartphone Facebook app still doesn’t do that. Viewing pictures posted by friends has also been tweaked, but really, the big thing is groups. The last big update was over the summer, which included place check-ins and events.

Facebook on the PlayBook was a bit of a big deal when it first came out, since it was the first tablet-optimized app for the ubiquitous social network. Since then, Facebook has since launched an iPad app, and though we’re still waiting on an Android Honeycomb version, third parties have stepped in and provided decent alternatives.

You can snag the updated version of Facebook in the BlackBerry App World.
