If you’re addicted to Facebook, as millions upon millions of people are these days, the odds are pretty good that you don’t want to be detached from your precious Facebook messages each time you step away from your computer. Smartphone users can enjoy a mobile app on several different platforms such as BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows Mobile, but what about the rest of the masses? Sure there’s a semi-usable mobile site but it won’t provide you with any type of notifications when it’s not open in your browser… What’s an addict to do? Emoze announced earlier this year that it expanded its offering to support standard java-enabled devices and now the company is pushing the envelope once again. Today Emoze announced the addition of Facebook messaging support on all platforms currently covered by its application – Symbian, Windows Mobile and perhaps most significantly, nearly any handset that supports java applications. The app will allow users to instantly read, reply and send messages, and it even auto-populates friends lists. As of today, only Symbian users can enjoy the newly updated app by hitting from their handsets, but Emoze will make the new Windows Mobile and java clients available this week. There you have it people – now the unparalleled time-suck that is Facebook can continue to whittle away the hours of your life no matter where you are. Sweet!
