    I don't know about anyone else, but I have not received the failure notification since I updated the app. I hope this is the case for everyone else also.

    This actually seems to be an ongoing issue with ICS and Facebook on the Rezound, the best luck getting around this has been disabling Facebook for HTC Sense in Settings-Apps-All, it is not needed for normal use... I recommend clearing all FB accounts first.

    1) Delete all Facebook account in Settings-Accounts&Sync
    2) Remove Facebook app in Settings-Apps
    3) Disable Facebook for HTC Sense
    4) Reboot
    5) Install latest Facebook app from Play Store and setup accordingly (add account via this interface)
    6) Do not use the "Logout" function as an Exit button, it is different
    7) Enjoy not being prompted for authorization all the time

    This works for 4 out of 5 people, not sure why it doesn't work all the time, the issues are coming from the "stock" Facebook Sense client, not the actual FB app (not trying to say it's a good app, just that it doesn't seem to be the cause of THIS issue).

    I noticed when I disable the Facebook for HTC Sense it will not give option to sync calendar and news feed anymore....only contact list. Then when I enabled Facebook for HTC Sense again the options were back again to sync calendar and news feed.

    Hmmm.... Just tried it, and they were there until I deleted my Facebook account then re-added it back in, then the Calender was indeed gone (Newsfeed sync shouldn't be relevant unless you use FriendSteam) and I am still v1.9.7, so this is telling me that is has little to do with the actual version of the Facebook app, and more something behind the scenes. Just checked my Calendar app and indeed now all Facebook events, birthdays, and other calendar stuff is gone. Will play around and investigate further and see what I can find out.

    EDIT: OK, got it all working, took a few steps and trial and error though:

    1) Goto Settings-Accounts&Sync and remove all Facebook accounts
    2) Goto Settings-Apps Facebook and Force Stop, Clear Data, then Uninstall Updates
    3) Goto Settings-Apps-All and re-enable Facebook for HTC Sense (and FB Chat, not sure if this is necessary)
    4) Go to Settings-Apps-All-DNLAMiddleLayer and Force Stop then Clear Data
    5) Reboot (Fastboot off, or remove battery after power off and reinsert)
    6) Go to Play Store and download latest FB App
    7) Go to Settings-Accounts and Sync, and Add Account for Facebook (FB app will open)
    8) Log in with your credentials, choosing to sync contacts with at least on option (I used sync to existing contacts only)
    9) Allow FB to open and newsfeed to load, then exit
    10) Go back to Settings-Accounts&Sync-Facebook and you should see the three Sync services, either in process of synching or complete!

    Hope that helps!!!
