Facebook wants to be everywhere, except BlackBerry - CNET

Going full circle -- unitasking with email...

"After heady days as the phone of choice for the likes of Hillary Clinton, BlackBerry has faced a decline in recent years. While Android and Apple account for 58 percent and 39 percent of smartphone sales in the US (based on recent figures from Kantar Worldpanel) BlackBerry falls under the unfortunate "other" category, which accounts for 0.1 percent of sales.

With sales growth at rock bottom, one of the few things going for BlackBerry is its existing user base of faithful customers. But now that support for the world's most popular social media and messaging apps is gone (like WhatsApp, Facebook also has the over-the-top messaging app, Messenger), there are fewer reasons for rusted-on users to stay."
