    It's working well for me, but it doesn't terminate properly when you back out of the app. You have to kill it.

    well I'm not about to kill it as I shouldn't have to, you'd think an app that is native to our phones would be coded well enough to actually sleep properly, I never saw this issue before.

    hmm i seem to not have any problems that you guys are talking about and i actually think it is great, the only think i dont like is when you tap on a notification, it saends you to the web but other than that i have no complaints

    Have you checked your Partial Wake time with BatteryHistory or SpareParts?

    It's easy to revert back to the old version. Just uninstall in the market downloads section and it will revert back to the old version.

    It's better than it used to be but there's no reason why I click a notification that it forces open FB on my browser. Stuuuuuuupid lol.

    What Rom do you use? I flashed darchdroid over the weekend and even after the FB update, I rebooted, but that didn't fix a thing.

    OK, I'm puzzled. I saw the info about the update on Facebook. What the heck is this? Asked a co-worker who is very savvy about the Hero and he didn't know either. How is Facebook for Android any different than just using a browser like Opera or Skyfire?
    Also, I can't seem to locate it in the market - I'm still on 1.5, could this be the reason?

    Thanks!

    I don't think it was native on 1.5 like it is in 2.1 but I believe you can still download it from the market.

    greenfields: FWIW, I'm still on 1.5 and I'm not even sure what Facebook for Android is - I don't think it's available for 1.5 - I simply use a browser to access FB. But I also stopped receiving FB notifications a few days ago - I wonder if this is a FB issue then.

    The marriage between Facebook and Android really needs to shape the F*ck up! I am getting sick of the SHIT-ass apps that FB puts out on the market.

    :(
    I'm left with 18000 duplicate entries. Seems like every contact was duplicated 80 times.

    Glad I don't update or use the shitty FB app for our phones. the website will suffice until they actually put out something good. lol
