    Anyone notice (or I'm missing something) that touch.facebook.com doesn't always show current information. If I pull up my browser and go to facebook I get something completly different than what I get on my eris facebook screen.

    If you press home on the eris touch.facebook.com, you get random postings. Strange..

    use m.facebook.com

    It's what I use instead of touch.facebook and the official facebook app for android.

    the official app by facebook would be ok I guess but I use messaging on facebook far too much, the fact that that isnt implemented really makes the app worthless IMO.

    I don't really expect the app to be as good as the iPhones but they really need to at least add that, I'd also like a feature to quickly go to my most visited friends pages but it's all wishful thinking.

    Any word on a possible update to the facebook app?!
     
  8. yeah i dont even hardly use my phone for fb.. if i am within range i goto my ipod touch. the facebook app there is a gem

    by the way bloo loads pretty fast for me.

    they will update as needed. if you would have tried to use it 2 months ago you would know it was REAL bad then, it is considerably better now, and i expect it to continue to become more useful.

    many people think the bad blood between FB and GOOG is the reason the official FB app is lacking, i think it is just a new platform for FB to develop on, as time goes on and FB recognizes android isnt going anywhere it will certainly improve.

    sounds like a cache issue, what browser are you using?

    Try lite.facebook.com . pretty sure it allows chat as well in a java pop up within browser. (make sure it's enabled)

    If you scroll to the bottom of the touch site you can click view full site or mobile site.
