Another Blow For BB As Facebook Discontinues Support For All BlackBerry Devices

On daily basis, BlackBerry users should know that really their device is on the blink of being totally useless. Guys, is sad I have to announce to you guys that our lovely social media app, Facebook will no longer work on blackberry phones starting from March 31, 2016.

You can recall that just last month, WhatsApp announced it plans to Discontinue WhatsApp application on blackberry and some other devices at the end of 2016

Imagine using a phone without WhatsApp and Facebook installed on it at this technology age. Chai!!! I pity those that still stick with BB devices. In fact very soon, BlackBerry will be totally useless and even the BlackBerry CEO said they will no longer produce new phones

See a statement from blackberry about this

"The app landscape continues to evolve, and in ways that are not always within our control. Recently, Facebook made the decision to discontinue support of their essential APIs for BlackBerry and WhatsApp announced they would end support for BlackBerry 10 and BBOS at the end of 2016.
We are extremely disappointed in their decision as we know so many users love these apps. We fought back to work with WhatsApp and Facebook to change their minds, but at this time, their decision stands (but let them know how you feel on social media, using the hashtag #ILoveBB10Apps). Despite this, we have worked hard to ensure our end users have the best experience in light of this decision, and are continuing to search for alternate solutions..."


To all the BlackBerry users reading this, if you really like your phone and you would like to retain the Facebook app on it, then don't try and install any update to the current version you are using right now or kiss Facebook app Goodbye.

However, all blackberry users, can protest this by going viral on social media, let Facebook know your feeling with this hastag #ILOVEBB10Apps on social media.
