Facebook for Android Updated with Chat and Push Notifications

Some of you Android users out there may have noticed that the Facebook application has been updated in the Market. What new features does it include? Well, push notifications for when you get a new wall post or direct messsage, and real-time chat with your friends who are online. Chat is a huge addition, and long-awaited by many users; now that both iPhone and Android have official Facebook chat support, one can only hope that BlackBerry isn’t far behind.  The last significant update to this particular client was the introduction of the Places check-in service which leaves me wondering what else there is to add to the app. Anything you’re really hurting for?

If you haven’t already gotten the notification, you can download the updated Facebook for Android here.
