Default BB Curve 8300 - Facebook icon issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have a small Facebook icon with a "1" next to it on my email page, to the left of the icon showing how many unopened emails I have. There are no emails from facebook.

My issue is that I can't figure out how to get rid of the facebook icon. Any help would be apprecaited.

Thank you.

go into the Facebook app, and then to notifications.
read the notification and the icon will go away.

Are you sure it's a facebook icon?

Have you tried a battery pull?

If you go into your Facebook app > Notifications and press U, does it take you to a messages? or Press T, then press the Menu Key and select Mark Prior Open. Does either of those clear it up?
