Bold 9900 facebook issue

Starting yesterday I began having trouble viewing FB notifications in my BB Message folder.  The notification comes in saying "Posted by Facebook User in 'Unknown Album'.  It has a date of December 31, 1969 7:00 PM.  This posts for all notifications.  I haven't changed a thing related to my settings.  It won't let me see the notification.  I uninstalled and reinstalled, but the problems continues.  Any suggestions?

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

By any chance have you installed the new beta Facebook app from BlackBerry BetaZone?

The one released yesterday?

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

JSanders:  No I didn't.  I've had the FB app on my phone for a while.  I've done updaes occassionally via the BB App World.  This just started happening yesterday "out of the blue".  I was wondering if this might be an app issue, since I didn't install or otherwise ammend anything on my device.

 

Thanks

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

Like chipstr1, I began having this issue in the last couple of days. It presents exactly like the original poster described. It is driving me nuts. I also have not made any changes to my phone or apps. It just began "out of the blue" as chipstr1 said. I was going to try to uninstall/re-install, but won't now knowing it was not successful. I'm guessing this is an app issue. :/

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

A google search of the issue led me to this blog archive from 2004...email and sms issues surrounding this exact date and time. Replies to the blog entry continued for years. More than a little odd.

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

I'm guessing this could be a virus or other type of issue. Since this isn't unique to my device, I'm going to ride this out and see what happens. Deleting and reinstalling does not fix it. Thanks for all the insight.

There is no virus yet created to affect BlackBerrys. That's not the problem.

 

Likely it's some bug in the app or the connection to the FaceBook servers. Facebook changes things, and the FaceBook for BlackBerry developers have to run to catch up and figure out what's the change, and make tweaks to the application, beta test, etc.

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

By virus, I kind of meant an app issue. I agree with your thoughts. We'll see if this clears up soon. Thanks!

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

ah, ok. A different definition for virus. That's such a dirty and alarming word, I wouldn't use it where you don't mean it.

 

Anyway, I do think this will clear up.

Re: Bold 9900 facebook issue

I think this may have already cleared up. So far, I've not had a problem this morning.
