    hey all,
    I'm one of the last that have yet to root my Ally.
    Just not comfortable with it I guess.
    Anyway, my Facebook app is draining 25m of my internal memory.
    What can I do to minimize this?
    If I do clear data, what exactly does that do?

    Please no Root or buy I knew phone suggestions, for I know
    already that is my ultimate fix.
    But in the meantime... what can I do?

    Thanks again!

    Clearing data deletes your account. All you have to do is sign back in after wiping. You won't lose anything.

    WOW!
    By doing so, I just freed up 22M of memory.
    If it's not needed, why does the Facebook app store any info?
    It's running just as fast (faster actually because of the memory set free).

    Anyway, Thanks again Valkerie!

    I noticed Facebook doing that shortly after I got my Ally too. Unsure why it does it.

    I believe it might be storing everything as a cache. Like pictures you view and such.

    Agreed...clear out the Facebook data, I have also noticed that it saves a lot more than needed, and all you have to do is re sign-in. I cleared up about 25 MB!
