Why no Facebook App Update?
It's been months (more than 5 months) that we seen any update for the Facebook App on the Playbook. This is just ridiculous!
The Facebook App for BB Smartphones gets an update almost every month. Even in the Blackberry Beta Zone, the app is updated at least every 2 weeks. WTF???
While we get like two updates in a year for the Playbook.
There would be times when you can't even view some of your notifications on it; you have to go the the browser and log in to Facebook instead.
Instead of focusing on the quantity of apps, how about we focus on updating some of the apps that are widely used and hasn't been updated for months!
Ex: Evernote, Facebook, Adobe Reader, Music App (Official), and much more...
RIM needs to make sure that developers continue updating their apps and provide the best experience that everyone can enjoy, even if it is a paid app or not.

I wish it was Facebook
But I agree with the OP. Some PB native apps are miles (many many updates) behind their iOS/Android versions.
I know in most cases it's the developer to blame. But in cases like FB or Adobe Reader (developed by a strategic partner), I am unsure who to put the blame on.
And I am not even talking about the stock/OS apps, such as the browser that has been missing a few very basic but widely demanded features for more than a year.

It's such a slow and cumbersome app that probably too much work is required to update it. However, you'd think that because it's obviously going to be on BB10, and because it's such a popular app (generally), they'd at least make an effort.
