    Imho every icon should be the size and shape of the wikipedia app in bb10, except fully flat.

    Looks like the gradient is still there, but less visible because of your background image.
    Yes I confirmed the gradient remains for FaceBook and other applications. My BlackBerry Q5 wallpaper is a partial computer keyboard in grey-scale.

    I just noticed after reading through the entire thread that some icons have rounded corners and other icons have square corners.

    So it's a preview of what 10.3 icons will look like ? Maybe even the grey box will go.

    The Facebook logo has nothing to do with BlackBerry.

    Don't over think it.
    "By BlackBerry Limited" they developed the BB10 app... they changed the logo aesthetics.

    From all of these new apps being pushed to flat with rounded corners, who knows. Maybe BlackBerry will change the icons to just that.

    It could be good

    Foursquare makes the app...not BlackBerry?

    Unless BlackBerry publishes it under foursquare's name (which they don't for the Facebook app)
    Oh you're right, Foursquare does publish their own app for BB10. My mistake.

    It looks like they changed their icon to be the same on all platforms.

    Yes. Just open up BlackBerry Express to get an idea of where BB10 is probably headed. I don't mind as long as it doesn't have that cartoon look Apple went with. I played around with my brothers IPhone on the weekend and it almost looks dated to me now. Nothing against Apple, but I feel they've destroyed the simple classic look it once had. Now it's a simple child like look.

    No, Facebook controls what their brand looks like no matter who writes to app. That's how companies work their branding - period.

    Facebook actually changed their logo to this look last April, as mentioned in this Mashable article:

    http://mashable.com/2013/04/19/facebook-logo-update/

    It's just taken a while for them to filter it out.

    BBW simply still shows the old logo.

    OP was a keen observer I guess, this thread may say it all as it's subject implies, let's see what BlackBerry had in its pocket.

    I noticed the change in the appearance of the FB app, but not the icon until I read this.

    logo background flattered and rounded (that's FB choice and any app publisher can do), yet shadow (BB10 managed) is still gradient.

    You're not getting it. It doesn't matter who develops the app, Facebook has brand guidelines for use of their logo. Facebook has given BlackBerry the right to use their API in full to develop the Facebook app for BlackBerry which is why BlackBerry's name is on shown as development. But BlackBerry still has to follow the Facebook brand book. If they don't, they can't legally call it Facebook.

    Take Whine and iGrann for example. Those developers do not have permission to use the brand name and logo of the real app. Nor have they given full permission to develop an app for the respective companies.

    I know this from experience in marketing and advertising. Using the brand name and logo is taken seriously.

    BlackBerry may have selected to use the flat option but it was not altered by BlackBerry for the purpose of using a flat design.

    Lol. So much debate about an icon, just look at the Android and iOS Facebook icons, they're the same. Same with the Foursquare icons. Let's just be realistic here, anyone who has a flat icon on iOS will push that icon across the board eventually.

    Just posting ^ again so people could come to their senses. This has gone too far. Lol.

    And then there's a thread about having layered icons to create depth.

    People, BlackBerry does not create non BlackBerry proprietary app icons. It's out of their control.
