You're lucky, that's not the only way to do it.

 

From your phone's browser, type www.blackberry.com/facebook and download it from there.  The facebook app is available to every country except China, however BlackBerry AppWorld is not available to many countries.  For that reason, it makes it difficult for many people to get access to it.  The link I supplied will get you around this problem.

 

Enjoy your new facebook app!  Smiley Happy

Re: Update For Facebook App on Torch

As per Bill's suggestion, you have to scroll down the page a bit in order to directly download the app from the mobile web site. The first link you come to will indeed take you to AppWorld, but if you scroll down further on the page, there should be a direct download link. Good luck!
