    Now as many of you probably read or noticed, the Facebook app is finally updated. Read the full article here if you haven't : Facebook for BlackBerry 10 has been updated, but you're not going to like it | CrackBerry.com

    So now, as the app stops working on 31st March or when updated before, there's 3 options what to do:
    A) use the browser (pretty much what I'm doing now, but at least I saw my messages popping up in the Hub- fairly good I have to say)
    B) use a third-party app
    C) who needs fb anyway..

    So as I liked the Hub integration, I looked out for those 3rd-party apps. I found 2 to be interesting : F5 and Face10.
    The latter seems to be widely known compared to the other (Insta10 or whatever the name is is another app from that dev). I'd like to know which one of you uses one of these apps and would like to share some impressions and experience. Reading the 'reviews' is kind of superficial and usually consist of 1 to 8 words, not as helpful as some may think.

    Thanks!

    F5 is basically a Web based interface as well. The only one that is hub integrated is Face10 by Nemory Studios. It's pretty good, but you'll have to use his Messenger app as well with it.

    How do I make sure that I won't lose most of my contacts at the end of the month? I'm so torn over this.

    Loss of the contact sync is going to kill me along with messages in the hub without the messenger app.... sighs

    Thanks for the feedback so far. If you want to save your contacts, try to copy them to local or to any other account or sync them with another account. 50/50 chance it works

    Thanks. I never thought I can add my account again. Contact photos are the only reason I'm not deleting Facebook even though Face10 came out.

    I don't think will lose the contact images when March 31 comes. I just think we won't have updated Facebook profile picture for our contacts.

    I don't wanna be rude, but is anyone reading the messages when installing something? When I did the update it said clearly that if I proceed with the update all my account details and contacts will be remove.

    Yes we read it. But do we have a choice? Yes, we can wait until March 31 but after that we'll lose all those things.

    So don't say that we don't know what we're doing when we update the app. Because sooner or later the update will be forced to us even if we want to or not.

    Telling people what will happen after the update won't make people less angry.

    This Face10 thing doesn't really work very well. I buy the Pro version and restart the app a million times and it still doesn't recognize the fact that I upgraded to the Pro version. No Hub integration either.

    No restarts for me. Pro version is active. Full hub integration.

    Full Hub integration? I got partial integration (only the messenger) and that thing is hella slow. It doesn't register my own outgoing messages until I hit refresh. Bizarre program.

    in face10 app drag down from top of screen, click settings, then on bottom bar press "restore purchase". Hope this helps!

    Hello Everyone -

    I just joined these boards after this ridiculous facebook update! Lost a few contacts because of this crap too! Contact integration all gone. It's a complete mess. Hopefully, they may learn from this negative feedback and fix this problem.

    Good thing I saved all those contacts to my Sim. All I have to do is a little leg work to get contact pictures (which is what I was afraid of).

    Other than that I don't miss the old native facebook app at all. Face10 pro still has hub integration that is better that the old app. I deleted the old app yesterday no use of waiting. I'm not a big fb user either.

    A combination of the fb mobile site on my home screen with face10 and I'm good. I will stick it out on the passport a little longer before I jump to the Priv.
