Checking in with facebook

Can anyone help me with checking in with fb? Whenever I have tried, I have got an error message saying my location cannot be found and to try again later. I presume this is something to do with gps and that I need to tick a box somewhere, but I don't know where or how! . . . HELP. . .

Re: Checking in with facebook

Hi! You can resolve the error by setting application permission for GPS so that Facebook can detect your location, follow these steps:

 

  • Swipe down from the drop bezel to access the BlackBerry Playbook Options menu
  • Scroll to "Security" on the left hand side
  • Application Permissions
  • Tap Facebook
  • [this opens the Facebook permission options]
  • Enable GPS location by selecting "Allow" or "Prompt"

Thats it. Your issue should be resolved.
