Ok, so not only is the most recent Facebook update loading slow, but now it wont post new posts created from the phone OR the new tab. I just now had to go to the browser to post an important message on Facebook.
I would think that suggesting an alternative would be. No help that I can offer would fix how bad the official FB app is. It has been well documented from the minute they launched it that it is cruddy.
Up until the last two updates I never really had a problem with the native FB app. Yeah it wasn't the greatest, but it got the job done. Now I've noticed that if I change networks in lose all connectivity in the app. Sorry but rebooting your phone so one lousy app can have connectivity just doesn't sit well with me
I pretty much uninstalled the update to the official FB, since I am not rooted yet, I can't get rid of it completely..and I put in Friendcaster...it's very very fast. I had Tweetdeck, but eh, it's okay not great. I will only use Tweetdeck for Twitter.
The only reason I haven't switched to friendcaster is because I've noticed that friendcaster doesn't show some (important) friends that the facebook app does. Probably related to some sort of privacy setting facebook but it's why I don't go to friendcaster or some alternative.
