    Lost FaceBook Widget - ProblemI think the FaceBook widget is the best widget out there for checking status' randomly. As I was configuring my layout I seemed to have lost the widget. And yes, I do know how to retrieve the widgets, but when I go into HTC widgets or Android widget (not sure what one it was under) the facebook widget is no longer there as an option.

    Also, I tried to revert back to an older screen configuration, which I know has the widget on it. Now in place of where it is supposed to be is the text "Problem load gadget."

    Any suggestions on how to get the widget back would be helpful.

    Also sorry, I posted this as well on the other HTC Hero not noticing the one specifically for Sprint HTC Hero's.

    How would I go about uninstalling and reinstalling a widget that came automatically with the phone?

    I checked on the market place and I don't see it on there.

    I thought I tried all the facebooks on the market, but apparently I did not. Just found the one I uninstalled and everything is good now.

    I lost mine when doing the latest ROM upgrade, and now I can't find it for the life of me. I know which one you're talking about, the widget that was 4x2 and allowed you to scroll through all of the FB statuses?

    Can you point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    Update - I found it. It's called Facebook for Android, and is free in the market. Nifty little widget, but I still prefer to use m.facebook.com for more complex FBing.

    Not sure why this didn't come up before. I simply repeated my search in the Android market, and the sort order was different, bringing this to the top. Hope this helps!
