Default Facebook for Android vs. HTC Facebook

I don't have my Evo yet.... but I've read that there are 2 facebook apps to choose from during setup.... Facebook for Android, and Facebook for HTC Sense.

1) - What is the difference between the 2? Should I choose one over the other, or does it not really matter?
2) - Can I use 2 different Facebook accounts? (1 for FBFA, 1 for FBFHTCS), and would it give me the option to choose which account I wanted, when I wanted to upload a photo, do a status update, etc....

Thanks for your help!

They're kind of redundant. If you want the actual Facebook app (Profile, Inbox, Notifications, Friends, etc) then get Facebook for Android. Facebook for HTC Sense only ties in facebook integration into contacts and when you share your photos

Weird thing is...when I ran Appbrain, it told me to update Facebook and now I seem to have both. Problem is that when I try to add certain facebook contacts to my favorites/speed dial widget, the list only goes like halfway through my contacts so some of them cant add facebook data. Not sure if I screwed up having both installed but even re-syncing hasn't fixed it. Might have to delete and then re-add the account under Sense Facebook.

I use both. The FB for HTC to provide pictures to my contacts and for the Friendstream. I use the app for heavy FB surfing and mail.

m.facebook.com is the best as far as I am concerned. It is basically the full site minus the margins. Most of the margin content is at the bottom of the page. It runs fast and has most of the content of the full site.

Does the facebook app let you comment pics? The HTC version is awful. You click someones new photo and rather than take you to that photo, it just takes you to all of them and you have to hunt thru them. You also cant comment one while looking at it. Is the app any better?

I was able to comment - it's in the menu button if I recall.

It let me put a separate account on each one (FB for HTCsense and FB for Android, the normal stock android app). It did exactly what was hoping it would do!

you just go to settings>sync accounts, or whatever, and then "add account", and it should allow to select which one you want. You can't add 2 accounts to each, though, you just have to log out and log back in with your other account if you wanna use 2-3 accounts on the same app. I'm no expert (just had this thing 24 hours now), but that's what I've found in my limited experience so far.

m.facebook.com is an app? Or is that just an alternate site you navigate to using browser?

I use both.

I have 2 facebook...A personal facebook for my friends, family and such
and then i have a modeling facebook completely dedicated to my modeling.

Facebook for android is used for my personal account...it allows me to reply to messages, allows me to comment on people's wall posts and write on their walls....
I also upload all the pics i've taken and trust me in the 2 days ive had an evo, ive taken quite a few pix of myself lol using the android app.

Only thing i hate is...1)No chat, 2)To see certain things someone posted a comment on it takes you to the browser.

Iphone app for android is the best i've seen but from my understanding i don't think the android facebook app is the official "facebook app" like iphone

FOr the htc facebook app, i sync my modeling facebook account to it to keep up with what the people are saying. It really doesn't do much except like ppl stated above sync facebook with your contacts and you can update your status.

I find it ridiculous that Facebook for Android sucks so much. Come on Facebook, get it together.

I finally found the 2 account FB solution. Use the Android FB app for your main account, and download BuzzDeck from the market. You can add a FB card and stay signed in to that. It won't sync up contacts or let you chat, but at least you can access both accounts.
The reason BuzzDeck seems to work is that it doesn't really on the browser. I used to use the HTC Sense version for my main account and the FB app for my other. Problem was, every time I'd need to click anything from my main account, it would take me to the browser, which was tied into the FB app, thereby showing me the wrong account info. Confused? Yes, so was I.
It's not perfect, but it helps me out, as I keep separate family and friends accounts.

Personally, I think that the HTC Sense version really just confuses things.

Please let me know if this info helps anyone else!

in the people app, click the persons contact card, then at the top right there is a link button. click that, then link it to the facebook account.

I got confused at 1st too having Facebook app on phone and the one for HTC sense. I still don't fully understand it. I do have Friend Stream open sometimes but usually I just go to the browser and to FB best way for me. Having this big screen and fast browser is great for me. But on my Touch Pro 2 when I commented or made a status it would say sent from mobile phone or HTC Sense. I commented from the web browser and from the app and noticed it didn't say that. Just curious cause I commented from my phone on break one night from work and someone thought I was on the work computer on FB.

But when you guys talk about Facebook app for Android that's the app that came with the phone right? Now a different one from the marketplace? I still like just going to the browser it takes you to m.facebook.com then mine goes to some touch facebook site. I do like the app that is on the phone though it's better than the one on my TP2. I don't think it's the same. But on my TP2 I mostly just went to the web browser to get there too. I had it set up as my home page.

root... It disappeared after I ran the the file someone posted that removed the sprint bloatware.

So.. Any suggestions on how to get it back, without having to crap the phone out.

I didnt do a backup.. Cuse I had nothing really to back up.

Not really a big deal, since all I lack is the facebook sync which was kind of anoying, mostly due to it placing duplicates and the fact some of my friends are ******ed and put numbers such as 867-5309..

Also don't forget...if you load the full page you get all the features. The browser is a better app than any of the dumbed down dedicated apps IMO.

Absolutely this. The apps are bloaty and dumb, and the touch site that the default facebook link that comes on the phone is equally ******ed. Only reason I would use the FB app is if I *really* needed to upload a photo and didn't know you could "share" directly to FB from the gallery.

alternate site. I've changed my bookmark to only point there.

edit: Also, if you really want FB chat, get meebo or ebuddy or something as mentioned above. Meebo has been pretty good to me so far.

could anybody explain if it's possible to DELETE a wall post, etc via any of the options available on android? I can't seem to figure it out on the Facebook app, friendstream, or the mobile site. The only way i seem to be able to do it is to switch the website to the full version and zoom in, and try to find the hidden "Remove" button (that would normally require a mouseover to view).

there has to be a better way...

I don't know i commented on someones wall post today and typoed and couldn't find a delete or remove anywhere.. But does it ever say sent from HTC sense or mobile when using your phone? My old TP2 did. Not that it matters but if I am on break from work and using my phone I would like it to say that. Guess I could just type it in. Someone said maybe it doesn't say that cause it goes from the m.facebook to the touch page. I don't know. But I was on FB today and just went to the browser. I never really FB chat anyway I am usually invisible when I am on from home.

I hate the Facebook App for Android. I stuck to using my browser and just added it to my favorites. I like the original look of facebook, not an app look.

I would love some help with this if anyone can figure out what's going on.

I have the FB for Android app installed. I am rooted with Bugless Beast. I was trying to add Fb as a sync account through settings->accounts & sync, but when I would click add->FB, nothing would happen. Then I logged out of the FB app, and my attempt to add a sync account would bring me to the login screen. I can log in, but the account doesn't show up in my list of sync accounts.

When I go to a contact, in the sync and gallery screens both say to log in to FB to link. In the sync screen, nothing happens. In the gallery screen, it pulls up a loading screen that stays up indefinitely.

I just want my pictures to sync. I've been using syncmypix, but starting earlier this week, it stopped being able to find any contacts. Not sure what's going on there. Twice, I have gone through and connected them all manually, but on the next sync, it loses all connections.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Just uninstalled and reinstalled FB app. I'm getting the same results still.

EDIT AGAIN: Just uninstalled and reinstalled SyncMyPix, and it was able to connect my contacts this time. I still would like to get the account sync up and running.

It seems that a lot of these comments are missing the OP's point, in that they needed easy access to 2 separate accounts.
All good tips though.

alternate site. I've changed my bookmark to only point there.

edit: Also, if you really want FB chat, get meebo or ebuddy or something as mentioned above. Meebo has been pretty good to me so far.
I agree. The preinstall fb app rarely works. My account sends me emails which send me directly to the mobile site--- i do everything i need from there. As far as chat, use meebo. Got rid of my Gtalk(still pops up after killing the widget, choosing not to have it autosign me in, etc) do all my chat on meebo...Waiting for Trillian to get out of beta!

I have both. My Facebook for HTC Sense takes up 35MB, all data, and Facebook takes up 20MB, 14MB of which is data.

I'm not in need of extra memory at the moment but when the time comes and I have to cut back something then I'll have to consider deleting the data on one or both of the FB apps...but what exactly could be taking up almost 50MB of data? More than just usernames and passwords I think!

I'm loathe to delete something and potentially screw things up when it's all working fine but freeing 50MB of space is tempting!

I have nothing to contribute but that was a epic sneak of a win! (now I got it stuck in my head though!)
