Forced to upgrade from BETA FB

I had FB BETA 3.3.0.09. I got a notice this AM that I was to install a newer FB. I went to BB BETA site and the number they were showing was the 3.3.0.09 . So I went to BB. App world and I reinstalled the no. BETA FB App.
That was listed there. It ended up being 3.3.0.11. It is a newer FB version. The main issue here is they locked my BETA App. Where FB would not open.

Re: Forced to upgrade from BETA FB

Hello,

What you describe I think is quite normal. Once they release from BETA (as they did with 3.3.0.11), they close out the BETA version as it's then out of date, and no longer needing any BETA testing. Rest assured that they likely will have yet another BETA in the future...but keep watching for it (and keep discussions about it) solely in BETA Zone.

Good luck!

Ok. Didn't realize I was violating anything with BETA. In the past you had time to install the released copy.

Re: Forced to upgrade from BETA FB

You're not violating anything with Beta. As mentioned, when they put out a release version they force the update from the beta version. No biggie. I did notice that I got the message when i attempted to open Facebook this morning and it took me to another download link. Downloaded it, rebooted, and all good.

They have always done this with beta versions.
