Installed Facbook app v.1.8, but there is no Facebook

Hello,

 

I installed Facebook v1.8 on my Blackberry Curve 8330, but there is no Facebook.
There is no icon or anything that says Facebook in which to access it.
I made sure the my bberry met the System Requirements before installing:

 

System Requirements:

To use Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones, the following is required:

  • A data service plan from your wireless service provider
  • A BlackBerry smartphone with 64 MB of memory
  • 1.3 MB of available device memory
  • BlackBerry® Device Software v4.5 or later (to find your software version, click Options on the smartphone Home screen, then click About)
  • Access to Browsing Service.

I checked my applications and it shows it as installed.
I uninstalled it, and then re-installed it.
I also did the remove battery while bberry on to reboot trick.  Nothing.

 

Any help or adivce would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Installed Facbook app v.1.8, but there is no Facebook

I'm having exactly the same problem with my BlackBerry Curve 8330.


It worked easily until just a couple of weeks ago, then unexpectedly it just stopped. I can read messages, etc, but the Facebook for BlackBerry® smartphones app no longer works on my 8330.

 

Have tried to reinstall it a couple of times now. Have removed the app, then reinstalled it, but it just doesn't work at all.

 

Anyone have any ideas, hints or real solutions to make it work again? Thanks!

Re: Installed Facbook app v.1.8, but there is no Facebook

It should be in your "Applications" folder.  After you download it, when you're on the home screen, press the "bb" button (or whatever it's called) to bring up the entire list of icons and folders.  Look first in your "Applications" folder.  In my case, it's directly underneath the BlackBerry App World icon.  If you don't see it there, while you have the Applications folder selected, hit the "BB" button again (the one with the BlackBerry logo), and select "Show all." to make sure the logo isn't hidden.
