Where is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn?

I've got the dev alpha B and got the BB10 update on it. For some reason I can't find the Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn apps anywhere. They aren't in the Blackberry World, or anywhere in my hub.


Anyone have any idea? Not sure if this is the right forum to post in but I can't find a relevant one, or any related problems on google.

I was able to download the Facebook app from BB World, but it just hangs at the "add an account"-screen

Re: Where is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn?

Unfortunately the Dev Alphas do not have Facebook or Twitter integrated support and currently there are no plans to change this.

Re: Where is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn?

Dev Alphas were meant to test the apps you make for it, not be a fully functional BB10 device.

Re: Where is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn?

Why you say that BB alpha can't be a full functional? I think that couple of users set this to be ok
