Hey Another Facebook Update on Android!

An old changelog accompanies it, so who knows what we have to enjoy now. Go grab it though.

Market Link

Cheers Brian and sonnydroid!

    Pic was taken with a Droid 4 lol

  • Raven

    Still haven’t updated since they changed the UI.  Waiting for the market comments to finally be positive about an update.  I might be waiting a long time the way it seems.

       Never going to happen, no matter what they do, people are never happy with it.

    Maybe they should put some of that $5 billion into their own application. Seriously, both the Mobile web version and App are so slow. It’s almost painful to use it, as if Facebook wasn’t already painful.

    …..Looks at her Google+ and says,” Dont you worry, I’m not going to put that nasty FB on this phone”….

    • Nshawn43

      then CrazyoldBroad remembers that nobody is on google+ and installs facebook anyways lol

    And the old changelog still shows the non-existent push notifications.

  • Joe

    Still completely unusable on a tablet.

  • bionic

    I get every type of notification. Not sure if that’s a good thing though. Bionic

    Hope it fixes the huge lag I’ve been getting ever since the new design. Every time I click something it takes ages to load.

  • Tim L Lawson

    Broken can’t scroll below first screen

      Same

    I guess what screen that is. ROFL.
    I hate facebook with a passion.

    The right changelog is posted. Here’s the features:

    Navigate anywhere including groups, apps, pages and settings with a single press. 
    Look through friends, subscribers, apps and pages. 
    See your friends tags on picture and zoom: New photo viewing experience. 
    Faster notifications. 
    Play games and access your favorite apps on the go. 
    Access to mobile timeline (if you already have a timeline). 
    Access to friend lists and subscriptions.

    • KevinC

      that’s old

      • Spc Hicks09

        How is it old if it’s talking about Timeline?

        • Aaa

          Its old. I could see timelines on the last update.

  • Michael G

    I haven’t been able to use the official Fb app for over a year now.  It constantly force closes on me.  I use Friendcaster.

    • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

      Use the mobile site (m.facebook.com).  It’s very fast and looks and functions just like the app.

  • Michael Forte

    The Facebook app is so full of fail…why can’t they just get it right?

    • http://www.youtube.com/kimirPORTALS kimir

      cuz they stoopid

    • Michael Forte

      Hmm I figured out how to get push notifications. Download a Blackberry Emulator on your computer. Sign into the Facebook app on the emulator. Check that you want notifications. Let it load your news feed. Sign out of the Facebook app on the Blackberry. Make sure notifications is checked in the Facebook Android app. Voila! It works perfectly. I tested it and got notifications almost instantly. Sucks that iPhone and Blackberry have push notifications but we don’t, unless you do this work around.

      • Jeff Creemer

        Well, I’ll be damned… That does work!! Thanks!

  • Phunkyjoey

    actually getting fb notifications would be nice. they’ve been broken on my gnex for a while now

  • Lakerfan82

    Why does it say push notifications in the change log when there is no option for it in the settings?

    • http://www.youtube.com/kimirPORTALS kimir

      it’s default.

      • Annonymous

         I think it’s silly that you can’t get notifications for notifications other than event invites, friend requests, and messages. I would like to get a push when someone comments (optionally, of course).

        • Mikeboodoo

          Not true. The app notifies you for everything, including comments. If it’s not working for you then try the work around that was posted in the earlier comments.

  • Anonymous

    Honestly, if it wouldn’t be such an inconvenience trying to get in touch with friends, I’d give up facebook once and for all

    • Peter

      I’m the only one of my friends who has deleted their face book and the only problem I have found is seeing if the girls I meet at parties are actually as cute as I remember.. lol

    • http://quiklives.tumblr.com quiklives

      I’ll second this. I much prefer Google + for the long thoughts and interesting discussions, and Twitter for the witty comments and short observations. Facebook is good for neither, and increasingly full of idiots. I have 100 or so friends on there, but the truth is that there’s only a core group of about 20 people that I really care about staying in touch with, and if I could get those 20 people over to G+, I’d happily delete facebook from my life.

    Does she swallow?

    • Noyfb

      Facebook sucks worse than a loose hooker after  a bust weekend

    • Mike

       In Soviet Russia, facebook hates you.

    my best friend’s step-mother makes $83 an hour on the internet. She has been without work for 10 months but last montħ her income was $8373 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more on this site… ŁazyĆash5.ċom  

    • Matthew Fura

      That’s amazing!  How can “I” make that much money just working on the internet for a few hours???

    Maybe it will function at a decent speed on 3G/1x now. (Slow as hell on my GNex when not in wifi or 4g)

    • http://twitter.com/spdivr1122 Stephen

      same. its very annoying 

    • Anonymous

      Okay so it’s not just my Droid X. That’s pretty disheartening that it struggles on a brand new phone.

      • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

        It’s awful on every phone, even the new ones.  It’s horrible on my Galaxy Nexus on Wifi and 4G.

    • Anonymous

      agreed, it is absolutely terrible.  But I compared it to my gf’s iphone4 and hers was pretty slow as well(both on verizon).  So it made me feel a little better lol 

    • Anonymous

      It’s actually not just the data speed. The app is horrifically slow in general, especially when you compare it to what you get when you go to Facebook’s mobile site.

      I guess they just want everyone to use that instead of the app. If that’s the case, I’d rather they just put the mobile site in a HTML 5 shell and called it an app. That would be infinitely preferable.

      fb on my friend’s 4s run so smooth and load much faster than my sgn. 

  • Anonymous

    probably the mobile ads they promised

    • John

      It would explain the non existent change log this update

  • M1ghtysauc3

    I hope it turns my Nexus into an Atari.

  • Bewara2009

    Good, I never get notification anymore maybe this update will fix that, 

    • Aaron Abdis

      FriendCaster is a MUCH better app. Slightly less polished looking, but WAAAAAY more functional!

      • Anonymous

        I use both. Facebook for posting, pics, video, etc and friendcaster for notification and copy and paste.

  • Jordan Webb

    Still not allowed to touch my phone. I don’t miss it.

    Maybe it’s actually a new changelog…. and updating the facebook app uses Zuckerberg’s money and transports you back in time!!

  • Bakerbreaker123

    Cool Beans!

       must’ve been taken from a DROID 4.

        Hah

      • Bewara2009

        Just stop.

       Pow!

    • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

      Nope, it’s taken from the Galaxy Nexus.  The screen on the Gnex is pentile, but still looks gorgeous due to it’s high dpi.

    Yay?
