    The regular Android Facebook app really sucks on a tablet. Does anyone have a suggestion for a better app to access Facebook from my A500?

    Oh, I already tried Friend Me for Facebook when I tap on "Add new account", it flashes to another page for a second and then returns to the original screen.

    If you're not happy with the facebook app, how about using the web version? I have it bookmarked as one of my favourites! :)

    You can try out Seesmic. I didn't really like it, but I know many people do.

    there is really nothing suitable for facebook for tablets :/ i could log onto Friend Me... but its pretty much the same as Friendcaster... they have some major flaws...
    @agent, agreed...
    and the problem i have found with using the normal site is that it doesnt really like the new layout and crashes every now and then... and it can get a bit annoying trying to press the right links sometimes...

    so really, we are at a stalemate with facebook on our Iconia's for the moment... I use the official app... which works (when it wants to :p) but i think they should make a tablet optimised version :)

    From a security standpoint, I'd rather use the Facebook app or the web version. I didn't even link to my Facebook account in Sense on my TB.

    Fair enough... it was only an idea!

    Yea, its ok... but one of the things i found is that when you use facebook on the browser it takes forever to catch up when you type... but you can go to the mobile site... that seems to work...

    Yeah, good question.

    I have an ASUS TF101 and the original facebook app really sucks - I can't even share wall posts. Sad thing is that using facebook via the stock browser in desktop mode isn't being ideal either, but it's the best way I have found so far. I'll be checking Seesmic.

    I finally found a better Facebook app for tablets... Facedroid. It's not perfect, but it is miles ahead of the standard Android Facebook app. Plus, the author of the app is constantly making improvements and listens to and responds to error reports and suggestions from users. :)
