Blackberry Torch and RSS Feeds

I see that there are only Twitter and Blackberry Messenger options to show feeds in the Social category (among other IM apps).  Is there a way to add Facebook to that and maybe change Twitter to UberTwitter instead?  Please let me know.

I've got the same problem. From what I've read in both the help files and other documentation, Facebook is supposed to show up but it doesn't on mine, even though I have it installed and it's open in the background.

Yep, that is what is going on with me.  There are so many other social networking apps as well that aren't listed or available.  I am hoping someone can shed some light on this real soon!

Re: Blackberry Torch and RSS Feeds

Ok, thanks to @BlackberryHelp onTwitter, this is what they said to do to get Facebook back and then add to RSS Feeds:

 

"Try to go through the following clean application load process: http://bit.ly/cKy9A0 Also make sure you test before restoring any backup ^PM"

 

I did this and then once it was rebooted, I had to go back into Desktop Manager 6.0 (that is what I have installed, it will work with latest 5.x version as well) and clik on Applications.  Once in there, I selected to reinstall Facebook and it worked.  I went into Setup - Feeds on my Torch 9800 and set up Facebook as a feed and it works AWESOME!!
