Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones 188.8.131.52 app is now available and addresses the following issues:
- Email Notification Improvements:
Previously, if you turned on email notifications using the Facebook.com website, then logged out and logged back into Facebook on your BlackBerry, your email notification settings would be turned off.
Now, with Facebook for BlackBerry, email notifications are left enabled if you change email notification settings using Facebook.com, then log out and log back in to Facebook on your BlackBerry smartphone.
- Background Polling:
Previously, if you set the background polling option to Never, then logged out and logged back into Facebook for BlackBerry, the polling setting would be set to 10 minutes instead of Never. This issue has been corrected so the background polling option will remain at the Never setting.
- Photo Upload Freeze Fix:
In the past, users may have seen their BlackBerry freeze when sending a photo to Facebook from the Media folder on their BlackBerry. This issue has been corrected by this maintenance release so no further freezing should occur.
To upgrade to the latest release of Facebook on your BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps:
- Open Facebook on your BlackBerry
- Press the Menu key and select Options
- Scroll down and select the option Check for Upgrade Now
