Default Facebook for HTC Sense - connection error

I have Facebook for HTC Sense setup in my "Accounts & Sync" section. When I hit the SYNC NOW button there, it seems to sync ok.

However, when I open the PEOPLE program, and select the ONLINE DIRECTORIES and then select FACEBOOK (I assume this is the HTC Sense facebook integration), it says connection error.

Is there some setting I'm missing somewhere?

I also get this when I try and access my Facebook photos - exactly the same error message.

I'd be interested to know if anyone else has the same problem, and if there is any fix?

Default Possible Fix?

The way I fixed the issue on my phone was as follows:
1. Go into the Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications
2. Go into Facebook for HTC and just Facebook and Force Stop, then clear all data
3. Restart phone

I'm not sure if that'll fix it for everyone, but it worked for me.

I have the same problem. Facebook App - works; Friendstream - works; Online Directory (in "people") - "Connection error.

Tried removing and re-adding the account, restarting the phone several times in between as well as stopping both apps and clearing all data and cache. Nothing works...

You know what, I'm willing to bet that this is a facebook error. I have also began
experiencing this issue today. So have some people on diferrent forums I checked too. Before today everything worked perfectly.
