Re: Find friends from the Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones Application

Hello and welc:smileyhappy:me to the C:smileyhappy:mmunity

 

On my facebook and i have the latest version.... when I go to facebook, the only options I have to search friends is the 4th icon over on the top row.  It brings up a list of all my friends and I can search for the friend I want.

Re: Find friends from the Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones Application

Hi,

I read the article you provided and several others. I think we differ in interpretation.

 

"Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones is designed to allow BlackBerry smartphone users to add Facebook® friends to the Contacts application on the BlackBerry smartphone."

Add Facebook friends to the Contacts application on the BlackBerry smartphone

 

That is a well defined one way statement Facebook friends add to the BB contacts, in a one way transfer.

There isn't a provision for BB contacts who are not Facebook associates be stored on the Facebook application.

It wouldn't serve a valid  purpose as far as I can see. I have also not seen this request or reported as an error by

other users. It may be worth reconsidering.

Thanks,

Re: Find friends from the Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones Application

Not sure if this is what you are talking about, but when I set up the BB Facebook application, it asked me if I wanted to search through my BB Contacts to look for them on Facebook.  Came up with some wierd results, but it found a bunch that I was already friends with and added their facebook picture to my BB Contact, and then sent friend messages to those that I selected that I was not already friends with.  Is this the feature that you are trying to get to work?  It was pretty handy, mainly for adding pictures to contacts.  I have NO IDEA what I did to get this to run, however.
