Facebook Threw Another Heavy Bone To Users Of BlackBerry Devices

Facebook recently announced that they won't be available on blackberry operating systems soon and later compounded the issue by also stating that WhatsApp will no longer be available to BlackBerry users also.

Remember Mark Zukerberg is the owner of both Facebook and WhatsApp so he is carrying out the decision at the same time. This has made so many BB users to drop their phone already and run to Android and iOS devices.

After many yarns and cries on the internet by blackberry users for Facebook to withdraw the planned action, they were given another blow but for me I think it's better than non. Facebook will now make a web base Facebook for BlackBerry users in place of the normal Facebook Android app.
Meanwhile, only latest BlackBerry Priv is allowed to continue using Facebook app.

According to the statement
“The experience will be slightly different, but you’ll still get the same Facebook features you love. And, of course the full Android Facebook app is available on the Priv by BlackBerry.

Our fans are fighting for us (#WeAreBlackBerry), and we love their support (#ILoveBB10Apps). That’s why we have worked hard with Facebook to address some technical challenges and the best solution was to move forward with a Web-based app.”

Like I said, half bread is better than non. So my BB friends, kindly manage the web base Facebook.
