    Default Facebook News Feed Flashing on and off?

    Anyone else experiencing this issue with their Incredible? When I went to the newsfeed on my facebook app, it never fully loads, it just flashes on and off. I asked a friend that has a T-Bolt and he's not experiencing this problem.

    The Facebook app for Android is always a constant source of complaint. I've never been fully satisfied with it.

    Neither have I. The widget never works properly and the UI is horrible.

    Mine just started doing it today, ran fine for a few days but this was after I upgraded to 1.6.

    This is on a Thunderbolt BTW, so it's not just phone specific.

    UPDATE: If you clear Facebook's cache under the application settings, then log back it, it appears to fix it.

    My wife's Incredible did the same thing. I uninstalled the app and then re-installed it and it fixed the problem. That worked for about ten days and it started doing the same thing. I uninstalled/re-installed it again and that fixed it. It will be annoying if I have to do that every ten days.

    The problem is Facebook, and likely always will be.
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    There's still a way to get to the old version of the feed. Just create a Facebook widget, and then tap the Facebook icon on the top-left of that widget and it should take you to the old style.

    So glad you added that update Bierich, it worked perfectly. My OG Droid started flashing the News Feed section on and off a few days ago, annoying as hell. Clearing the cache then logging off & back on fixed it. Thanks for the tip!
