    So I just finished watching a video put out by my company on 'social Networking'. It was made for my company by 'Future Point of View.'. It is a video more geared for our sales force, but was assigned to the Tech force to watch too.
    I was watching this video which the presenter talks about being up on latest technology and using social media to be in contact with everything and everyone..and he states... '"I know people that still use BlackBerry Phones, all you can do on those is get email. You need a smartphone for todays technology and social media"... WHAT??. your up on Technology?

    Yes, I'm just venting. I know this is nothing new. but now I will have to hear from all my co-workers about this! UGH ha!!

    I did send an email to the video company, who made it, to use technology and do some research!

    Ignorance knows no bounds. When it comes to the masses and BlackBerry, it's endless.

    Well fb app is nowhere near the android version. Chat doesn't even work for me anymore. Twitter etc always sucked as well...

    Well if he was talking about BB10 he was correct. Maybe he just isn't aware of the Priv which is shocking considering the awesome ad campaign that BB put together for it

    Age of the video? When was it filmed?

    For all you know it could have been made in 2012 or sooner, and referenced BBOS phones, so it wouldn't be that far from the truth!

    A lot of people obviously don't know smart phones from dumb-*** phones. A ton of inane apps doesn't a smartphone make.

    No, he wasn't. That's preposterous.

    If he was talking about BBOS he may have a point but even then likely not since they did more than just email. If he was talking about BB10 he is way off. Obviously it does much more than email.

    Sadly he was probably talking about legacy BlackBerries since BB10 is still such an unknown OS.

    Just saying BBOS 7 has Facebook and Twitter.

    I don't understand people.

    If they do social media they should probably check what they are talking about before they say it.
    They are all about technology and they don't even know what current technology is apparently.

    Semi-OT warning !

    Reading this type of comment for months, I thought I would be all ouhh-ahhh-wow with FB on my brand new Priv.
    Well, despite the obvious bugs in BB10 (answer to answers, etc) I found it (Android app) to be quite pathetic, as well ! That's still a poor job and I keep relying on the web view to get a correct experience.

    P.s: FB messenger will go to trash as soon as I've finished my test period. No chance FB will be anything else than general delivery. PM is fine, IM: no, thanks !

    A) The video makers obviously don't know what they are talking about, so there are likely other problems as well
    B) Your company paid to have the video made, so collect up a whole set of valid criticisms and try to convince them to chose a different company to make videos in the future.

    Meh cant argue against opinions.
    Such is why it is our job to continue to support OS10.
    Because there IS enough space for four ecosystems.

    Not if they're losing money though, that is the issue. If BB10 had made a better appearance from the start, things could be much different.

    Lots of ignorance Out there about blackberry. When I first posted on Facebook, asking people what they thought one guy said that getting a blackberry Would be the biggest mistake I would like ever make. When I asked why he said outdated tech. I don't think he had taken a look at blackberry sense they only did email.
