    New issues for me with this update (Sammy Fascinate)
    - My GPS is always Pinging on start-up
    - I don't get the notifications within the app anymore (the red number at the bottom of the home area)
    - I still don't get push notifications.


    Basically, just a mess. Any thoughts on how to at least get the in app notices back? I've already uninstalled and re-installed.

    I stopped using this app awhile ago. After the update I love it on both evo 3d and galaxy tab.

    I love the 1.7 & 1.7.1 updates. I never tag photos though, so I can't speak to that working or not.

    As far as people who aren't getting push notifications...have you ever tried this fix?

    It worked like a charm for me. All I did was log into the Facebook app on my brother's Blackberry & post a status update onto my wall. I have been getting INSTANT push notifications ever since. Apparently having permissions for "Facebook for Blackberry" on your account solves the problem (it did for me at least) because I NEVER got a single notice pushed to my Droid X before I tried the fix. I had previously relied on Gmail to notify me of Facebook comments & have since disabled all email notifications from Facebook.

    The only issue that I had with both 1.7 & 1.7.1 was that initially, the pull down to refresh option didn't work but all I did was clear the app data & cache in the settings menu & once I logged back in everything has been flawless.

    As far as the GPS pinging, I only had that the first time I logged in. Since then I haven't seen it once. But I do disable my location from my posts & never "check-in" anywhere so that may have something to do with it.

    I haven't tried it because I don't have a friend near by w/ a blackberry, nor do I want to bother them with my phone issues. Why can't it just work... Like it's supposed to. The GPS usage is pointless, and consumes battery. I love using android, but it's times like this when I really wish I had a phone that just worked....and that I didn't have to "work" to get working. What a hassle.

    If you are just noticing the limitation of FB notifications being sent to your Android device and / or Computer, this isn't the result of the FB for Android app recent update(s). Facebook has once again taken the initiative to limit the amount of notifications that are sent to its users. Luckily, this settings is preset as a default setting - which can be change back to your preference. To change the default settings from your desktop, laptop, or full version of facebook from your android phone...click or tap on settings - then notifications and simple follow instructions to change the default setting to your own preferences. You can either choose notifications by Email or Text Msgs via mobile.

    As for the Facebook for Android recent update(s), it's obvious from reading all those bad reviews on the market, that many users are anything but please with this update(s). Personally, the two problems I'm having with this application is - first, the lack of not having the option to Copy & Paste. Developer(s) seriously, in these times - not being able to Copy & Paste is not acceptable. Second, since the recent update.. it's now annoying to like or comment on friends posts. Why? Lets say your in "news feed", usually you could just tap/click on the plus sign (+) across from someone's post - now the plus sign is exactly on the profile pic of your friend's post. And what makes it even worse, the plus sign doesn't work anymore. I would rather pay $$ for a good Facebook application - than to have to be disappointed with a free app that seems to get worse with each update(s).

    I'm sure they (App Developer(s)) are aware of all those bad reviews left on their Facebook page & on the Android market. With a great platform like Android, one would have thought that we would've an awesome Facebook application.

    I disabled the locations from showing up in my posts, but that doesn't stop the Facebook app from pinging my GPS location to Facebook in android. I tried using the app Permission Denied to disable the Facebook app's access to the GPS location, but doing so makes the Facebook app force close immediately on start up.
