In other words it wanted to use your BES/MDS connection, if you had one, and if not, it would browse from the device. Since BES users get this sevice book by default, a lot of people were getting around it by deleting the Desktop [IPPP] service book.
The 188.8.131.52 version doesn't try to browse through BES/MDS, even if your browser defaults are set to use it.
So there should be no more instances of "Error: could not contact facebook" due to corporate firewalls blocking your BES from talking to facebook.com
On the other hand, RIM also released IT policy updates which allow your BES admin to deny "social network application" (read: facebook) functionality, if they so desire it.
