    Hi guys, I'm new here and already have a burning question. I've heard that installing facebook onto the blackberry is not recommended, now that the new facebook layout is permanent. I'm scared to try it out myself on my brand new blackberry so I was wondering if anyone can confirm whether it is actually safe or not.
    Thanks and I'm addicted already

    Welcome! I use the facebook app and I haven't had any problems but I have seen a couple of posts about it. Some are having problems with it draining the battery. Look around and see what you come up with. I'm sure you will find the answers.

    Welcome to CrackBerry!
    I myself don't use facebook, but I'm sure a quick search of the forums here will turn up some info on the subject - Google is helpful too.

    Speaking of help, don't forget to visit the "newbies tab" up top there. Quite a mass of information for new users - I found it helpful when I picked up my own BlackBerry.

    Have fun, and welcome once again!

    I use Facebook for the iPhone and have had no issues. For the BB, haven't heard anything. Google around and see if anything comes up.

    I haven't noticed any issues with the Facebook app. I don't get a lot of updates/wall posts/messages/etc. these days though so it doesn't really get used that often.

    I've used facebook on all of my blackberries I have had and I've never had a problem with the app. Works perfectly fine. I get my notifications. If your still having doubts just google or search the forums. Welcome to Crackberry!

    I had a problem the first couple days with the facebook app not working properly. It wasnt receiving messages or notifications. I thought it was strange but after a couple days it just started working. Dont know what changed but I am sure if there is an issue someone has discussed it here.

    i'm also new to the BB, just got my first one earlier this week (sprint, BB curve 8330). one of the applications already available on it is facebook...and i do use it regularly on my laptop, so i went ahead and installed on my BB as well. i haven't had any problems with it.

    Thanks guys for all the replies
    I think i'll go ahead and take the plunge and install it. If it doesn't work correctly or does something to my battery I'll just uninstall it. No worries.

    Also, this might be a stupid question, but do you think it matters what version Curve I have regarding this app?
