    Default Facebook on Internet Connection Message

    On Wifi or T-Mobile, I frequently get a message at the top when it says loading that there is no internet connection. It's been going on for a few days now. Any one else have this also? Doesn't happen on my Nexus 7 on T-Mobile or WiFi or my iPhone either on AT&T, just the Nexus 4.

    Do you have it set to have it to load on data only, but happen to have your wifi on... therefore cutting your internet off?

    Happens to me all the time, but usually only for a second or two. Basically, Facebook is a lousy site and their app is buggy as hell.

    Yea, I was thinking it was just the app since it doesn't happen on anything else I use it on.

    I think my N4 has been doing this, since the native android FB app came out. If I open FB on the mobile web site, it works okay, but the app sometimes just refuses to update the news feed and says that there is no internet connection, or without any notification it just wont load. Both on wifi and 3g. I blame it on the app. They just dont give a about the android app. The iFacebook app is much better and fluent. : (

    it has nothing to do with the specific phone itself. It is the facebook app on android phones....I had an s3, note 2, and nexus 4 all do it. It still works and updates just fine, but that stupid banner comes up 50% of the time.

    I've been noticing it pop up more often myself. Usually it fixes itself within a few seconds. If I get the ever-spinning update circle, however, I usually have to close the app and restart it to get updates. As gone down south said above, the app is just a piece of junk.

    I notice that this message only appears when I have my GPS on?

    It happens to all of us. Read the app reviews, it is a very common problem.

    Never happens on iOS. One of the surprising things I have found moving from iOS to the N4 is how even big companies like FB, Paypal, etc have such very buggy apps on Android. These are simple bugs, how the hell can they not be fixed yet?!

    You are right. Once I turn off the GPS, the error message never shows up.

    Today's facebook update seems to have resolved the issue. Hope it's a permanent fix and the issue doesn't come back in the evening or in a couple of days.
