    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!

    I currently have a HTC Desire and the Facebook App for Android is decent. It's very simple, clear and precise.

    However, the downside is that you can't access your messages or events from the Android App. When you receive a notification and click the link, it takes you to the Facebook internet site, rather than continuing in the Android App.

    The above seems to be the main complaint about the Android App.

    OK, well, one day into this on the EVO now, I've figured a few things out.

    So far, the Android App seems to be much more full featured, but the HTC Facebook app is one where you can do simple things (like sharing photos, etc...) more efficiently.

    Yes, it does seem that I can use one account for HTC Sense facebook, and the Android FB app for my other account. Pretty slick.

    Loving this EVO.
