Re: putting facebook icon onto my home screen

 

Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Community Support Forums.

 

Scroll to the Facebook icon, don't click on it, but scroll to it.

Press the Menu key > Move to Folder > Homescreen.

Now, on your homescreen, scroll to it again > Menu key > Move and scroll it up to where you WANT it to reside on the homescreen and click on it to put it there.

Well, it does work, and since I don't know what you've tried, I answered your query.

 

IF you can explain what is not working, I can try to help. I don't think you're doing it right.

 

WHERE is your Facebook icon located now?
