Social networking apps on BlackBerry 10 OSAttendees of BlackBerry Jam Americas conference had a sneak preview of what Research In Motion has for BlackBerry fans around the world.

RIM unveiled the apps that will be included in their BlackBerry10 OS when it launches sometime soon and during the Blackberry Jam Americas conference, those in attendance got a small preview of what RIM has in store.

Social Networking giant Facebook made its appearance on the conference. The Facebook app for the BlackBerry10 OS looks similar with that of the Facebook app for iOS, with shortcuts at the top and the navigation panel on the left portion of the screen.

Foursquare is also set to make a mark to BB users as Senior Software Engineer Pete Nofelt showed what the Foursquare app for BB 10 OS would look like. The great thing about the Foursquare app for BB10, and one that is unique to BlackBerry, is the BBM integration. This enables Foursquare members who use BlackBerrys to post updates to their BBM accounts and other social networks with the Foursquare app.

RIM also said that LinkedIn and Twitter are set to come up with apps for their BB10 OS, although they were not a part of the conference.
