    Was on holiday and shared my phone to check facebook. My friend used it once and I've logged them out but have been getting all of their facebook notifications since then.
    I can't read the actual content, but I do get the notification on my top left corner to say they have new stuff. Am using htc desire.
    Sorry if this has been answered somewhere but I didn't find anything so started this new one. Any help appreciated! :thinking:

    Hey, On the home screen press the Menu button, then Go to Settings > Accounts & Sync... then you should see some accounts... Now if you have your facebook on there and theirs there will be two accounts for facebook and if its only theirs there will be one but anyhow.. find theirs, it will be a blue facebook logo with their e-mail address next to it for example 'someone@gmail.com' and under that will be 'Sync is ON'... Tap that facebook icon or their e-mail address and then tap remove account at the bottom of the screen and remove their account from your phone. Hope I was able to help :)

    When I get to the home page I can click settings, but there is no option of accounts and sync. Your plan sounds like it will work if I can just get to it!!!

    If you have 2 facebook apps, you may need to clear data on both to ensure both are logged out.

    Okay, well my original idea did not work. So, I have gone to apps; opened facebook and told it to clear data. It's only seeing one facebook by the way. So, then when I went to use facebook I had to re-login with my username and password. Fingers crossed....:eek:

    Facebook has had a few recent updates. Maybe in manage apps where you cleared data you could uninstall updates (or completely uninstall if it lets you) then reinstall/update from the market. That may get it out of whatever funk it's in??

    i think the HTC help woman has given up her latest suggestion was to hard reset, which i do not really want to do, so if anyone knows a solution it would be fantastic.

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to let you know that I think my friend and I have found a solution!
    I logged into FB on her HTC and she's been getting my notifications ever since even though I'd logged out etc. We'd tried everything above with no luck... In the end I decided to try deactivating my entire Facebook account from my laptop and then reactivating it straight away and it seems to have worked! I haven't lost anything from my account and she's not getting my notifications :) I hope this works for you as well!
