    Its the RFS. Apparantly the facebook application has quite a bit more I/O operations than other applications. At first I thought the facebook software was not mature/behind the curve compared to other devices. After applying RyanZA's OCLF, the facebook application went from unusable to really good. Just sharing what I have learned. Samsung really gimped the phone with RFS. I wonder if a future ROM will forgo RFS for something more with the times.

    Yep, the Facebook app sucks! The time it takes to load pictures is unacceptable.

    That's not what I'm saying though. It's not the facebook application, its the File System on the phone. Once you apply the lag fix to work around the lack of an I/O buffer on the RFS, the facebook application flies. Did you read my post?
