To be honest, I don't think most users really think about it though. Most users are on BIS/BES data plans, so the use of TCP is not really an issue. It is there mostly as a backup, or for situations where certain apps will only work that route. Especially if your carrier charges for it's use. Unlimited data plans are the way to go IMO. In my opinion, most users of the BlackBerry platform would say that having a BlackBerry without a data plan is like having a BMW riding on training wheels... You just don't get the full experience.
With that said, I believe there is no way to tell this unless you install the app yourself, and test it out. There are no obvious settings in options to see the transport settings. If you are in the same situation as Dudemaaan, you can always extract your code files for v1.6, try out the new version, and if it doesn't work, just delete it and reinstall v1.6 again. No harm, no foul. I also think (and someone correct me if I am wrong), if you get the .cod files and look into them yourself, you may be able to see what venue the app uses. But I truly don't know, because as I said, I think most users take it for granted that it works. Whether by TCP, or BIS/BES which we all really should have for such a device.
There are probably many people here smart enough to know what transport settings FaceBook uses already, so maybe one of them could chime in.
