Blackberry said it is “extremely disappointed” with Facebook’s decision to discontinue support for its app.

It means Blackberry users will have to use the mobile version of the website to log on to the social network.

It is not clear when this will come into effect.

Earlier this month WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, also announced that it would only continue to support Blackberry’s Android-powered Priv handset.

Whatsapp support for Blackberry’s own operating system will end at the end of 2016, the firm said.

“We fought back to work with WhatsApp and Facebook to change their minds, but at this time, their decision stands,” wrote Lou Gazzola, who works in developer relations at Blackberry, in a blog post.

“We have worked hard to ensure our end users have the best experience in light of this decision, and are continuing to search for alternate solutions.”

Mr Gazzola urged supporters to take to social media using the hashtag #ILoveBB10Apps.

“Hey @facebook and @WhatsApp #ILoveBB10Apps Please don’t kill’em *attempts puppy eyes*” tweeted Jo.

“I use BB10 because I wanted an alternative to Android and iOS devices, don’t stop offering people an alternative choice! #ILoveBB10Apps” tweeted Ed Hale.

Facebook has been contacted for comment.

  1. “Thanks for your suggestions. One thing really noticed is the fact banks plus financial institutions have in mind the spending practices of consumers as well as understand that many people max out there their cards around the holiday seasons. They properly take advantage of this specific fact and commence flooding the inbox and also snail-mail box using hundreds of 0 APR credit card offers right after the holiday season concludes. Knowing that if you’re like 98% of American public, you’ll jump at the chance to consolidate card debt and move balances towards 0 interest rate credit cards.”
