    Hi, have recently upgraded facebook app to latest version 1.9. App will not even load newsfeed and after a while of loading, will announce 'connection lost'. I have tried with wi-fi and 3G. Have cleared data and cache, have uninstalled and reinstalled updates from Google Play. Also I will say that this problem has been here since I bought the phone not just after the update. Does anyone have any idea what to do?

    Starting Friday, April 27th 2012, I have not been able to access the "News Feed" in Facebook for Android. Everything else; other Favorites, Groups, Apps, etc. seem to work. Have switched between WiFi & 4G and occurs on both. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Facebook for Android but still doesn't fix it. My smart phone is the htc Thunderbolt. I have no problems accessing the "News Feed" in Facebook on my laptop. So I feel that it has to do with something happening to Facebook for Android about Thursday/Friday, April 26th/27th 2012.
    Any Ideas on how to fix this?

    Unfortunately FB app is notoriously buggy and some updates are more buggy than others. I had to give up on the last update for the reasons mentioned above which I couldn't resolve via the usual methods (clear cache/data, un install etc) and use the mobile site instead.

    It updated again yesterday and it seems to be a bit more stable since.

    FB App started playing up again on me last night similar to the issues outlined above.

    I checked my quick settings and it had both wifi and mobile network ticked.... turned off mobile network and it's working fine again... might be worth checking?

    Goerygirl - Where do I find "quick settings". I've been having this connection lost for the past week! Ugh! I don't find a reference to it in facebook settings or normal settings but maybe I haven't dug far enough. Thanks for the help!

    Quick settings of the phone not FB app; drag down the bar from the top of your phone screen and there you should be able to see if you have wifi and mobile ticked at same time? I find that with the recent FB app updates instead of prioritising wifi over mobile the two settings seem to fight each other.

    I think so but my problem is when i uncheck the wifi and i wanna use mobile data the problem occurred and i can't even open any other website. I really wonder now cos of my phone or cos fb app? if the problem come from the app i will remove it cos it's annoying i have to active or disactive airplane mode several time in other to make them work again (browser and fb). If anyone has any idea about this problem please share...

    The Android FB app is so buggy awful and power hungry it should never have been released, just my opinion of course :D

    FB should get their finger out as they could loose a massive market in a mobile future ;)

    Hello and welcome to the forums - thanks for jouning :)

    Have you tried clearing the cache for the Facebook app? I know that the app itself can be a little buggy... it could be worth switching to the mobile site... it's another option at least :D
  14. yes i tried doing that but its of no use....mobile site sucks...i want the app to run smoothly...is there any specific version for desire hd???
  15. Set the language to English and restart the phone.
