There is a brand new page featuring Birthdays and Upcoming Events. When you click on an Events, you get the details of the event and then the RSVP for that Event! Pretty Cool i must say! 🙂 My only gripe for now with this app is the Facebook Chat Feature which is still missing in the app!

Steps to Download & Install Latest Facebook for Android on Xperia X10
If you are a Xperia X10 Owner, i would strongly suggest you to have this update for your phone. Your Xperia X10 won’t show the Update in the Android Market for some unknown reason. 🙁
So, you need to go to Android Market and search for ” Facebook for Android ” ( without quotes ) and then install the LAtest version on your Xperia X10. On Clicking the install version it will prompt you to replace the old Version V1.2.0 with the Latest Version V1.3.0. If it doesn’t prompt for the replacement, then perhaps you are not installing the Official Facebook for Android!
Although, chat is still missing in this App update, this update is a must have for all Android owners! 🙂
