Facebook IS Not Gone Yet – On Blackberry Anyway

I don’t know if anyone else who has the application has noticed this too, but what happened to RIM’s promise to get rid of the enforced “is” from Facebook status updates? I received an email from RIM a few weeks back prompting me to download an update to the “Facebook for Blackberry” application, with the only “new feature” listed being the removal of the enforced “is” on status updates. This would have brought them in to line with the rest of Facebook’s user, and made me very pleased having complained about this (admittedly tiny) issue many a time. But having downloaded and installed the update, I don’t see any change at all. Have I done something wrong??
