Facebook Session keeps expiring
It's getting extremely annoying, every 10 min or so my facebook sync account expires and I have to log in again. I disabled the sync account created by the facebook app and deleted it and created one manually within accounts and sync that also syncs the fb calendar along with contacts. When I look in groups sometimes it'll show all 525 of my fb contacts then they randomly start to drop and now it's showing 509 contacts??? what gives?

This started happening a week ago. Very annoying, yes.
I haven't pinned the cause down but here's a few guesses...
When the phone is in a low/no coverage area for long periods - it seems to want the Facebook login again and again.
Even though it asks for the login, the Facebook app still works. So I believe it's asking for the login for sync purposes only (contacts, calendar).
As long as I'm in a good coverage area, it asks for the login once per day at the exact same time (my Facebook is set to sync four times per day). But if I'm in a low coverage area, I think it will ask for the login if the phone tries to sync and then is unsuccessful.

The same thing was happening to me. Go to settings > applications > manage applications > Facebook. Click 'uninstall updates", restart your phone and re-login to Facebook.
For some reason the last Facebook app update was causing my issue.Tina T
