Re: No Facebook profile pics?

It is a known issue on Facebook for Playbook. RIM is aware but I don't know when a fix will be implemented.

Re: No Facebook profile pics?

Facebook often change their API's with little or no notice. In fact, from a development standpoint FB is quite unstable. They frequently break other peoples apps Then it may start working again for "no reason" after a few weeks or months once they get round to fixing the bugs.


As the problems didn't start after a FB app version update, I suspect FB is the cause, not RIM.

Re: No Facebook profile pics?

I have the same issue with the profile pictures on Facebook.  I rang Blackberry Playbook support yesterday and they said "it is a known isse and they are working on it but don't know when it will be sorted!"  The advised that, in the meantime, " if you search for Facebook in your Browser and sign in to Facebook all your Account information is there, including all your Profile Pictures etc".  That is what I do now and it is brilliant - I only had to sign in the first time I did that.    It would be GREAT if this issue was sorted - and I think they should get it sorted out SOON but this is good to know in the meantime!!!
