    since switching to the galaxy note lte, i have been experiencing an issue with the facebook app. when trying to tag friends in a status, or anywhere else friends may be linked to i assume, the friends list does not load. i receive an error message at the bottom saying something like,

    "can not retrieve the friends list; content too large. try again later. (length unknown [65000 application/json])"

    or something along those lines.
    i have about 1,000 facebook friends. i wouldn't say that's a lot considering you can have up to like 5,000 friends on a facebook account i believe. i switched to the note, currently running ICS, from an htc one x which was also running ICS that did not have any issue loading my friends. my old iphone 4 never had this issue either.
    it won't even let me just search for the specific friend rather than scrolling through the entire list its trying to load, like any normal person would do anyway. anyone else experiencing this? anyone know why? if it really is because of how many friends i have i'm rather disappointed, i use the tagging feature very frequently.

    update: did a facebook friends clean-out (which i was meaning to do for a long time but have been way too lazy because it's so tedious the way you need to delete friends from timeline) and went from the 1,000+ to about 450. the error has stopped appearing and friends list is loading quickly and smoothly when trying to tag. i am not complaining because i finally got around to that clean-out and have solved my issue, but i still find it lame that my one x and iphone did not have this issue even at my highest friend count.
