    The stupid Places is updated. Seriously, the app still sucks, I wish they'd fix it. I'm also sick and tired of trying to use a browser to browse and then get sent back to the app - I don't want to use the app at all. I want browser functionality or just leave me alone with the browser.

    I totally agree. I don't understand why with the last 2-3 updates they couldn't implement it in. Could it be that hard????????????

    The changes are:
    Fixed a bug to improve Places.
    Added higher resolution uploads (I don't need that as Facebook for HTC Sense does that already).
    Various bug fixes.

    A problem I am having with the app that I can't get resolved and is very annoying is that when I update my status or mobile pictures it does not update to my friends' news feeds. This has been happening for about a month now. Others have had this problem as well and has been brought up here: Wall posts not updating on NewsFeed | Facebook

    Anyone have any advice?? Thank you in advance!

    Notifications are my only problem. I love how it has all of my messages unlike the BB app. Just give me push notifications and I'm golden!

    If you or anyone else wants real time fb notifications sent to your phone download an app called "f plus".

    I was about to install Facebook for Android for the first time today, but saw it wanted read/write contact data permissions.

    Anyone know why that is?
    I don't want to sign in then suddenly get all my phone contacts added to facebook or vice versa.

    It finally doesn't send you to the facebook mobile or touch site when selecting a notification. It keeps you in the app now and makes the app much more useful.
