    I logged out of Facebook and recieved that message that tells you it will remove all the Facebook data from your phone if you log out. I decided to be lazy and not look up what would happen, so I logged out anyway. When I logged back in about ten minutes later, I went to my friends and none appeared. I then tried Facebook chat and it said no friends were available to chat.
    Does anybody know how to get it all back and working again? :thinking:

    Are you referring to the official FB app? That is strange. I do that all the time since I use FriendStream for FB. I log into with the FB only when I need a feature not available on FriendStream. But if you log in again with your username and password it will recover all your data again.

    Like Ral i've never had this happen when I logged out of FB.

    Have you tried syncing via "Accounts"? If that doesn't maybe uninstall and reinstall the app?

    Many other apps use FB data. For example, Go SMS Pro downloads all the friends profile pics to use when they text you. If you log out of FB, you lose all that data. However, the next time you log in, it should go and fetch all of that data again.

    The problem with the FB app, is that it will collect more and more data everyday until it fills up your phones storage. So I delete all the data using the app manager about once a month or else my phone really starts to lag and I get limited disk space errors (even using app2SD).

    Yes, I have encountered this.
    And yes, logging in again "solved" it.

    Ral: Yeah I am. And no, I logged back in, that's how I found out it's not working.
    Goreygirl: I tried syncing it, no change.
    Clubsteeler: My data hasn't been deleted, it just wont let me view friends and chat never loads.
    AngryHatter: I guess I'm just the unlucky one then? :/
