    My Samsung Galaxy S3 (Orange UK) keeps popping up a message saying "Facebook is not responding. Would you like to close it?", with buttons for Wait, Report and OK.

    No matter which I choose, the message will pop up again in a few minutes or hours.

    I've tried deleting both Facebook entries in the Accounts & Sync options on the phone, and I've tried deleting and re-installing the Facebook app from the Play Store. No luck.

    Running stock 4.0.4.

    Thanks

    My advice is delete the fb app, n use opera mobile. You will save loads of time as opera is fast n the fb app is slow. Lol

    Updating the application will solve this issue. Open up the play store app and tap on the 'My apps'. Choose the 'Update' option.

    Same issue here. Also, I cannot upload any photos as my status or onto my friend's wall through the Facebook app. Can you guys do it?

    Same exact problem on my S3 (TMOBILE). My phone has been having problems primarily with Facebook, but a few other apps start screwing up as well. Then the phone has some stability issues, but resolves itself.

    Also its completely up to date.

    Same for me from the minute I downloaded the new 4.0.4 update on HTC One X.

    Was fine before.

    Didn't that update come with that?
    Did read about Facebook update and just figured it was to do with the phone update as it started right after I downloaded that.

    Well I guess what I was trying to say is that the issues stem from the facebook app itself. Not the 4.0.4 update sorry about that. I don't know that the 4.0.4 update came with the Facebook update.

    If your Facebook app is not responding then try this

    - open your Facebook app (it will be blank as white paper)
    - turn off the WiFi immediately
    - press home button
    - "Facebook is not responding, do you want to end process?" prompt will appear, between 3 options (wait, report, kill/no) press "kill" or "no".
    - again open facebook app
    - turn on WiFi and when prompt appear again, press "wait".
    - wait for 2 minutes and your app will be working properly in a while.

    It worked for me, hope this will fix your problem too.
    Have a happy facebooking !!
