Another bad stroke for BB10: Facebook app killed off

It is a tough period for BlackBerry 10. Just after WhatsApp announced a discontinuation of their BlackBerry apps, another app is dropping off. As of March 31st, the current BlackBerry Facebook application will cease to work on BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry OS versions 7.1 and earlier.

This is because the app is being discontinued and will be replaced with a web app. Those wishing to continue using Facebook are encouraged to move to the web-based app. So, BlackBerry users are not entirely cut off. There’s a web app for them. So, as it is, the app is currently on life support. Don’t forget: on March 31st, the plug will be pulled.

  1. For me and probably some that updated the facebook app recently, the app has already been pulled.
    I updated the app this afternoon and as I clicked to see what changed, it opened the mobile browser. Tsk!
