As of March 31st, 2016 BlackBerry smartphone users will have to perform an update for the BlackBerry Facebook application in order to continue using Facebook. This comes weeks after WhatsApp (Owned by Facebook) announced that they will be halting support for BlackBerry and Nokia.
The current BlackBerry Facebook application will cease to work on BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS versions 7.1 and earlier.
Those wishing to continue using Facebook are encouraged to move to the web-based experience which will provide the most feature rich alternative.
To transition to the web based experience, users should visit BlackBerry World on their device and apply the available update for the Facebook application.
