Thumbs down Sending pics to Facebook

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
I set up recently BB policy in our company and I was asked to keep access to Facebook unblocked. After applying policy I am able to access FB via facebook app. The problem is that when I try to upload a picture from Image Gallery to FB, I get the message that admin blocked this option. If I go in to FB application on blackberry and click on upload picture button I get the same message.
Which option is responsible for unblocking this feature in the policy so our users are able to upload pics without sending them via email?
Please advise.
Thank you.

Do you BlackBerrys access the internet using the BIS Browser or your own internal Proxy Servers?

All the traffic goes via BES 5. It seems as this issue is more related to security policy which I set up. When I tested this problem on a device without policy, this works fine.
Thank you.

Hi all,
I found the guilty option There is something called 'Disable Public Photo Sharing Applications' in the Security section of blackberry policy. After changing this to 'No', uploading photos works fine for Facebook. Quite simple, isn't it?
