Facebook pulls out social media apps from Blackberry

BlackBerry has been dealt a heavy blow as Facebook pulled support for its social media apps from the mobile platform. It will be recalled that last month, WhatsApp, a social media app owned by Facebook, announced that it would discontinue its Blackberry 10 and BBOS apps by the end of the year. This means, BlackBerry owners will have to use Facebook’s website if they will like to access the social network.

“We are extremely disappointed in their decision. As we know so many users love these apps. We fought back to work with WhatsApp and Facebook to change their minds, but at this time, their decision stands. Despite this, we have worked hard to ensure that our end-users have the best experience in light of this decision, and we are continuing to search for alternate solutions,” said Lou Gazzola, BlackBerry’s senior marketing manager for developer relations.

Currently, its remains unclear at what point Facebook plans to do this, however, users went to twitter to vent their frustration at the social networking company’s decision to discontinue support for the Blackberry 10 and BBOS apps.
