    That's a new feature. The carriers paid Facebook a lot of money so that you will use up more expensive cellular data.

    Seriously, no idea. Try logging out and back in. If that does not work, try clearing the app data and cache.

    That's something I wouldn't be all to surprised about.

    I uninstalled updates and it didn't correct the issue so I cleared all the data and cache still nothing so I uninstalled and reinstall still same issue. I have also rebooted the phone

    If you uninstalled and reinstalled you ended up with the new version. Looking at the recent comments on the app it seems others are having issues with very slow loading. Suggest you use the "report a problem" function in the app and also mention it in a review in the Play Store.

    I suspect a problem with the Facebook Apps latest update - send a bug report and check the latest comments on the Play Store to see if similar problems are occurring for other users.

    Facebook has a history of poor updates, or inability to update.
    You can try to uninstall then reinstall. Most likely you will have to wait for FB to find a fix.

    I am having the same problem at home. Both my iPhone and my GF's vodafone smart 2 have stopped working over wifi.

    My phone network is with 3 Ireland and so is my Internet (wifi dongle).

    Everything works while connecting over 3G but as soon as i turn on wifi and all facebook apps fail to log in. If i log in over 3G then switch to wifi and the apps work fine so I believe there is an error with the facebook app login.

    Maybe if I can get an old apk for facebook and install that it might show if its a network error or the app itself? I can get an ipa for my phone too.
    I have gone through my network settings and nothing has been changed either.

    Ugh. This was truly irritating me...Having to turn off wifi on my phone while at home in order to get my facebook and instagram to load. Using up my precious 4g data. Found a fix. Disabling IPV6 on my router did the trick. I have a D-Link DIR-601. Logged into my router, went to advanced and changed the IPV6 connection to 6 to 4. Did the trick for me.

    I was having the same problem, and didn't find any info online. I started changing settings in my router. Eventually I got to a setting that let me pick between wireless standards. I originally had my wifi router set to "auto" for the wireless mode. Changing the wireless mode to "N/AC mixed" fixed Facebook. Now I can use FB on wifi at blazing AC speeds. So long as you have mostly newer gear, setting the mode to "N/AC mixed" will work, but it may kill your wifi on legacy equipment that uses only a/b/g standards.

    In case you don't know, there are many wireless mode standards out there. The TLR version is that AC is the newest and fastest, but may not be compatible with all legacy devices. Older standards include 802.11a/b/g/n. Do a web search for wifi standards for more info if you're curious.

    For immediate result, you can disable ipv6 on your wifi router settings. But it's not an ideal solution. Disabling ipv6 makes your wifi connection less protective. It's happening to many other android phones. I think this prblm should be fixed.
