Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones updated to version


I'm not a big user at all, so this is an honest question, but what features in the current BB10 Facebook are missing that iOS and Android have?

1. Posting pictures in comments. (ok, I don't remember if iOS/Android can do this but I think they can)
2. Stickers in messenger.
3. Editing posts.

These are things I've found personally, meaning I'm sure there's more. Also iOS/Android seems to show more stories. I frequently find my BB10 version to be a blank screen until it loads and IIRC Android/iOS has the old stories displayed while you wait for it to update.

Do you remember how simple & less chaotic life was without facebook, twitter etc...Give it a break for a few months and you won't even miss social media.

There was a story on the main news here that said that Facebook is not too popular with the teens anymore because a lot of there parents use Facebook.

This would be a perfect time for BlackBerry channels to hit the market as a cool hip thing for the teens first.

Such strong language...."Unlike a page"!

There are some that I really unlike!

People want blackberry to be different from Android and iPhone yet still ask to have the same. Things they have I do understand

The FB update was causing an unhandled java exception error on my 9810 after the reboot. Once I deleted the app, the error disappeared. Anyone else experiencing this error?

I saw that too, and the Facebook icon was nowhere to be found. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and everything seems okay now.

Yeah--that's what it said when I tried to download it. Device not supported. Oh well, the current one is fine and the sideloaded Android one is awelsome.

They could stand to fix bugs still for BB10. I can't always see my foursquare check in when people like it and I never see comments when I get a notification that someone commented on my foursquare check in. Then again, the mobile site is lacking in this department too. Anyway, the BB10 browser handles the full facebook page adequately - not perfectly but close in my experience.

I use 8530 and no sound on FB notification, no problem on others, I tried delete and re-installed, battery pull, wipe handheld and re-installed OS. When I edit the profile and use the try button it sounds but still notification arrive with no sound. Anyone know the solution?

I always get this error "We cannot reach facebook server at this time". Unless I connect to wifi.. But I have BB service and always on 3G.
