    Anyone that updated their Facebook app can see how the icon image has changed. They removed the gradient and also rounded the corners.

    It's small news but the app is made by BB so it could be what's upcoming in a new updated to the UI

    Do you have a screenshot? Mine still has the gradient and rounded corners after the update.

    I'll clarify. The gradient is reversed, and the corners are rounded, but it is a new icon.

    Download Noted, my 5-star rated, native BB10 notepad app.

    It looks like no gradient. Especially compared to Twitter ans Slicktasks

    Looks like the gradient is still there, but less visible because of your background image. Swap the Twitter app and Facebook app locations & you'll be able to see the gradient better.

    Nope...BlackBerry has designed the FB app so whatever changes we get aren't from Facebook

    the LinkedIn app is flat with filleted edges too. Does this mean that BB is going down this route again?
    Did BlackBerry have anything to do with the new FourSquare app? That too has become more flat with filleted corners...

    I don't think it's so much a hint about UI as it is about matching how the Facebook logo looks on other platforms.

    Regardless who builds the app, Facebook has set guidelines for using their brand and assets.

    True, but it's interesting that BlackBerry rounded the Foursquare icon on their new update, when it was straight edged before. Facebook's own brand guidelines shows their new icon as rounded, but Foursquare's has the sharp corners according to those guidelines. But BlackBerry still went out of their way to make them both rounded.

    LinkedIn's has been rounded and flat though. Branding Guidelines | LinkedIn Developer Network

    Foursquare makes the app...not BlackBerry?

    Unless BlackBerry publishes it under foursquare's name (which they don't for the Facebook app)

    The Facebook logo has nothing to do with BlackBerry.

    Don't over think it.
