Sony European Product Manager Mayumi Donovan has announced new features today for the official PlayStation Vita Facebook application as outlined below.
To quote: As many of you will know, PS Vita has loads of social features and apps available so you can keep in touch with your friends wherever you are. If you haven't checked them out then what are you waiting for?
We are really excited about some great new features coming to one of our most popular apps - Facebook for PlayStation Vita.
With the latest update, available now, you will be able to search for new friends and pages, check in to places and upload photos to your wall using PS Vita's front and rear cameras. Plus, you can now post photos to your friends' walls too.
All this, coupled with many general improvements, results in a faster and smoother Facebook experience on the PS Vita. Download the latest software update to start using the new improved Facebook app now.
If you haven't tried out any social apps on PS Vita yet, head to PlayStation Store now to download them for free. You can share your favourite photos using the Flickr for PlayStation Vita app, find out where your friends are hanging out with foursquare, catch up on the latest gossip with friends and family via Skype and update your followers or find out what's happening all over the world with LiveTweet.
What's more, if you want to check out the latest funny videos, you can pick up the YouTube app.
We'll be announcing further updates later this year, so watch this space for the latest on the social gaming revolution on PS Vita.
