Facebook on Torch - no login/flood of junk

Trying Facebook on the Torch (just bought - Oct 10, 2020). Doesn't ask for a login and I get flooded with huge amounts of stuff from people I don't have as friends. etc.

 

No option in facebook setup for login, etc....

 

At a loss....

Re: Facebook on Torch - no login/flood of junk

Facebook most definitely does ask for a login but only once.  You can always logout of it if you want.  Nothing comes into your FaceBook BB app that doesn't come into Facebook on the PC.

Re: Facebook on Torch - no login/flood of junk

On first use of facebook was never asked for credentials.

 

Uninstalled, reinstalled and was prompted - now works as expected.

 

Was amused that the download site from a search on Blackberry.com to reload the facebook app resulted in a 404....

Re: Facebook on Torch - no login/flood of junk

If Facebook was already logged in when you got the phone then the phone was NOT new and/or someone else logged in and left it logged in. 

 

There was no reason to uninstall it.  You simply needed to go into Facebook >Options >Logout as I posted above. 

 

The download for Facebook is simply www.blackberry.com/facebook
