    Take a look at the FB App page on Facebook, there are plenty of posts about this as well as the poor performance.

    The FB android app is a very poor performer ... and it's a shame too. So much potential ...

    They are working on an update but the main guy behind Facebook phone apps is an Apple Fanboy. Read an article about him in which he trashes Android. I would say this is one of the main reasons for the lack of progress we are seeing. Now that Android is picking up steam, we should see improvement sooner rather than later.
