    Hello guys. I have a problem using facebook from my phone. I have a Samsung galaxy s3 and everytime i post a comment or status update from my mobile it doesn't say "via mobile" any more AND it seems like my general location (etc. 26 January near London) has disappeared. I have tried everything, all settings are on (gps, location services) I have even uninstalled and re-installed the app but nothing seems to work. Can someone help me please? Its simply frustrating since a few days ago everything was working fine and I havent changed any settings. :thinking:

    Maybe a recent update killed the "via mobile" option? Otherwise you could try clearing your cache/data and try posting something and see what the outcome is. Then again I haven't used the fb app in several months, when I did use it, it never showed "via mobile" for me, wasn't that big of a deal to me anyway.

    For the location, I haven't the slightest clue lol I've tried getting it to show my location in posts but it never would and I never could get it figured out either lol.

    It's not app related, or phone related. FB updated (again) and that's not showing for anyone. Most of the people I follow post from mobile and it no longer shows for them either. iPhone or Android, just not there now.

    Thank you guys for your answers. The funny thing is, I tried to log in from another mobile, which has these features still and even from there nothing of the above mentioned was showing. Just because it was MY account :p Sooooo annoying!

    I am having problem with video download from Facebook since it's last update. Before when I'd click a video I'd open prompt pop-up to select the application to play video with or to download, but since Facebook's last updated videos get played automatically when I click on it. Can anyone help me please how to download videos from this new version of Facebook or to recover the previous version of Facebook?
