I just installed face2face, a cross platform, location aware, social networking client from Promimate Global that combines Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter networks into a single client as well as ads consolidated chat between face2face users, on my BlackBerry, and, although I’ve only played around with it for about 5 minutes, it seems to be a pretty slick app thus far.
face2face is a location-aware smartphone app that solves the problems of privacy and safety that have become synonymous with social networking – so that more people can benefit from the advantages that come from knowing which friends are nearby.
I probably won’t enable any of the location aware aspects of face2face, and I will probably keep using a dedicated Twitter client on my device, however, face2face could be a candidate to replace Facebook for BlackBerry and LinkedIn for BlackBerry. I can’t say for sure just yet, however, I am impressed with speed and the interface of the app and if it allows me to effectively git rid of Facebook which is slow, and replace LinkedIn which is large, face2face, my find a permanent home on my BlackBerry Storm 9530 which is memory starved.
face2face is a free BlackBerry application as well as free for the iPhone and Android devices. You can download face2face for BlackBerry by visiting http://face2face.ws/downloads/bb/.

In my case, this is the best ALL-IN-ONE social network Combine, this Apps is simply AMAZING… or Should I say Genious!!! BRAV,O BRAVO..
I just downloaded this app, and pretty unimpressed. As a hard social networker/promoter for the the nightlife in the Seattle scene-this app just doesn’t cut it. Once its downloaded, there are few options as far as usability to increase its initial scan of your friends on twitter, facebook and myspace. It accessed my facebook, found no friends (of 1.300+ friends) found only my top 20 on myspace and found none on my twitter. A LOT of the menus tell there are friends, and can be highlighted, but when you click on them, it does nothing, and the app logs into the website version of myspace, fb, and twitter, which defeats the whole purpose of a social app that is designed to blend all three together on one screen. The updates screen hasnt updated since two hours ago. Also, on the feeds, like facebook for example, it shows that people “like” your comment and have commented-but it has no capability of clicking on these standard pieces of information. All in all a pretty weak app. I’m probably gonna delete it. Good Idea, but executed poorly.
Really like the UI and the functionalities. One of the very few good apps for BB.
Good app because its all in one, but doesn’t alert you when someone comments, or sends you a message or anything. I had to find out someone commented by refreshing & seeing my status had a comment! What’s the point. I feel like a stalker just reading statuses making comments but don’t reply back to when others comment. :/
