What sort of phone do you have? Is it rooted?

No worries about the rooting thing, it's a level of customizing that you didn't do, and that may simplify the fix.


I'm not a Facebook user but I can try to pitch in until someone more knowledgeable than I can pitch in.

So was this a Facebook that came with, or you added? Because I am seeing in your first post that you uninstalled one but still have one. (Sorry if I am reading that wrong.)

And welcome to the forums!

If this is what it says in the Market, then you still have it installed. That just means that the permissions on the app have changed, and you need to accept them in order to install the update.

Click on the facebook app in the market.
Click the update button and you should be prompted to accept the permissions.

The Market makes you manually accept updates where permission's change to protect you from an app that you may install with no permissions autoupdating itself with access to everything.

I hope this helps.

Also, sometimes you may have to clear the cache in the market...
