I tried multiple uninstallers, and the only one that even came up with it in it's list said it couldn't be uninstalled.
Is there a way to get rid of it? I made a point of not downloading any social networking stuff to the phone, and not this has appeared!
This is my first post as well, so here is my first shot at troubleshooting,
This is not too difficult. It is part of a system that you had enabled while using chrome.
Here are some things that you can do.
1. Go to the applications manager and disable this app, as you know it, its SNS Facebook. you will find it in "All" tab in the Application manager.
2. You can disable SNS through chrome. Basically fully reset chrome.
This will stop SNS from interfering with your connectivity and you won't be bothered again.
Hope that helped.
