    I just recently got a Samsung Galaxy GT S 5570 with Android 2.2.1 and it's all fine and except for one thing.

    Whenever I ve log in Facebook by 'mobile facebook Apps' downloaded from Android market is fine but if I comments or changed any status update its shows on wall something like updated 'via Mobile web' where as other product >Iphone,HTC shows 'via Iphone' / 'Via Android'. Why not this Samsung Galaxy GT S 5570.Anybody have any idea.

    My android is not rooted or anything, nor was it upgraded.

    Plz help!

    That line comes from the application itself and not dependent on phone.The Android facebook app is coded such that it displays "via Mobile Web". HTC android phones which show such a thing might be using some sense specific facebook app and not the one found on market.

    download "facebook for android" and upload your status from that app, it will show. I am using this app.

    I think the "problem" is with Facebook itself. Not only is "via Android" affected, but also "via iPhone" and "via Blackberry". I just checked it right now and saw that previous status updates / posts with "via iPhone" and "via Blackberry" were also affected too (changed to "via Facebook Mobile").

    Hope I helped.

    I've just bought my new Samsung Galaxy S II.. At first when i updated my facebook status, it appears Via Android. However, a few seconds later (I think around 10-15 seconds), it suddenly change to Via Mobile... I guess the facebook itself are having trouble in locating our phone type... It's a kind of frustrating right... Btw, hope it help.... Gues we just need to wait for the solution by facebook itself...

    you need to install an app called "Status Via" found on the android market, with that you can update your status and it will show "via android"

    I heard somewhere, it happened since google launched their google+, and facebook doesn't want to advertise google product..
