No more of Facebook on BlackBerry 10

Walking dead platform BlackBerry 10 got another jab in the kidneys as Facebook has decided to stop support of the platform. WhatsApp, a subsidiary of Facebook, will also pull support from BBOS at the end of the year.

Ever since BlackBerry introduced the Android-powered Priv phone, the company has been inching slowly away from actively developing its own homebrew. Representatives have said that it’ll be Android-only moving forward. And third-party developers are taking notice.

The INSIDE BlackBerry blog says that Waterloo remains committed to BB10 and that its dev community is “creating thousands of apps every month.” So, the company has decided to curate a periodical list of twenty “Great Apps on BlackBerry” in the World Carousel.

And yes, it is encouraging reaction to Facebook and Whatsapp through the social media hashtag #ILoveBB10Apps.
