Hey guys, Ive been trying out a few things on my blackberry like uploading pics straight to facebook while out etc.

Anyhow I uploaded them last night and looking at my phone this morning I noticed something odd.

The facebook `f` logo in blue is on the top left of my blackberry screen where the Text alert usually is.

Theres also a number that is changing constantly. It was at 9 this morning now its at 19 ?

Any idea what this is and how to get rid of it (e.g. to get rid of the text alert you just open the text/email)

Also any other qwerky little gimmicks I might not know about using facebook with my BB would be nice so share the knowledge

Lastly I was trying to do the same with Twitter but my phone doesnt have the "Send picture to twitter option" like it does with "Send picture to facebook/myspace"

Thanks in advance.

Go into the facebook app, go to notifications
I bet you there will be items that are in bold, such as comments, wall posts, etc.

This is the notification that you have a message/comment etc.
Emails that come from facebook about such notifications are intercepted by facebook and alert you by the f icon in the home screen header.

also, with twitter, you must have a twitter client installed, that supports twitpic, and install via the twitter app. I have ubertwitter installed and it does give the option in the menu to "send to ubertwitter" though i never got it working.

?
If you have the facebook notification i.e. an F with a number next to it, it means you do have facebook installed.
The facebook notification is NOTIFYING you of messages.
Do you have a facebook icon in your app screen? possibly in downloads or applications folder?

You dont seem to understand how the app works.

I thought it was installed when in actual fact it wasnt.

Sending a pic for the first time last night got it installed properly and I fully understand it now

Just trying to get myspace and twitter sorted now :

There doesnt seem to be a proper application though for twitpic :(

Right! good. so you know that when you see an F icon with a number, you have a notification, you need to go into the app, notifications and view!

erm, I know of ubertwitter, twitterberry for BB.
From googling it would appear twitterberry is your best bet for twitpic support.
