    For whatever reason FB app has always stunk on Android. I'd like to know why the FB apps for iphone are so much better than what we have available to us on Android.

    Are you running the latest version? I had the same issues in the previous version before this last update a Week or so ago.

    The only way I've found to delete the old conversations is to log out of facebook in the app. When you log back in they should be deleted.

    While it certainly is not perfect, once you experience the flakey iPhone version and the downright awful Blackberry version, the Android version of FB seems pretty freaking awesome! LOL!

    You are so right. I came from a Storm 1 and used FB on it. This version is a dream.

    If you are using the market fb app, when you install it asks if you want to

    >sync all fb contacts
    >sync existing fb contacts (sync only with the contacts already in your phone)
    >no contact syncing.

    The htc fb doesn't give you these options, only to sync or not sync and i beleive you have to go into setting>accounts & sync> fb for htc sense to be able to unsync.

    The only thing I miss about WebOS (other than WebOS notifications.. dreamy) is the FB app.

    Damn that, the truth is just the truth. The android facebook app is simply terrible. Its the only versions that doesnt give true notifications for everything. I mean unless you count the "push notifications"... thats if and when they actually work.

    Of course I'm serious. None of them really work right (which I think part of the problem may actually be FaceBook), but I've found the Android version to be the best of the three. On the BB the notifications would stop completely every now and then and the only way to fix it was to reinstall the app. On the iPhone version the notifications sort of work at random. It gets most of them, but not all. The Android version (so far) has sent all my notifications (I think), but sometimes actually viewing what I'm notified of is wasted time looking at something blank.

    Again, they all need work. on a 1-10 scale with 10 being best, I would probably rate them:

    BB - 5
    iPhone - 7
    Android - 8

    When it really comes down to it though, FB is almost a complete waste of time and life anyway, so I really don't give a rip about it. I'm not going to die if I don't get a notification or something and it's really not worth getting worked up over...lol!

    Open up the conversation > menu > close conversation.

    One bug does not make a terrible app

    Your other option is to use the browser and go to the mobile site. I find the app more than useful.
