    Welcome to the forums, lucylucy.

    If you're attempting to view the pics in one of the stock apps and having no luck, it wouldn't hurt to go in to Market and try a few of the apps available for that purpose. Many are free.

    I've moved your question to the Xperia X10 forum for you; perhaps others will chime in here.

    I always prefer to use the full-site when browsing Facebook. But since they (facebook) have changed the way pictures are displayed, it is a pain in the arse viewing them and you can only look at them zoomed out and it's very fiddly on the X10. Grrrr!

    Perhaps this update (done by facebook) has affected your facebook app too, and it (the app) needs an update to cope with the new way that facebook displays pictures. Maybe that update isn't ready for your particular app, so you could try another.

    I wonder how long it will take for them to sort out browsing the full facebook site properly.

    When i try to view photos they ttemp to load and then I get a icon appearing with a triangle and a blue exclamation mark!!! So frustrating.

    Any ideas????
