    This new app by Facebook is quick and very sleek, but on my Galaxy Nexus I am now continually getting network connection errors with the app.

    I jump to other apps to see if I am having an issue with my WiFi or carrier, but there's no issues anywhere else.

    The problem in Facebook seems to occur after looking through photos and albums. This morning I was going through contacts and seeing who didn't have a picture. Then via Facebook I'd find that person and use the "set as" feature.

    Just about every second time I did this, the network problem comes up. I've rebooted the phone but the problem finds its way back to me.

    Anyone experiencing this? Ideas?

    I am also, I sent an email to the app support via play store. While on 4g or wifi I get network error and the app won't refresh. On 3g it works quite well.

    Constant network errors on two Galaxy Nexus' that I own. I've found that if I kill the app it will work for a while.

    I've been using the app off and on all day on my tablet, and haven't had an issue. I should turn I off my radio on my Nexus and see if it's more reliable on wifi only.

    I get the exact same thing on my Nexus 4, but even when it says network error sometimes you just have to refresh and it goes away. Is anyone else having a problem with the twitter app when sending a tweet saying "tweet can not be sent saved to drafts"?

    The solution (crude though it may be) to the Network Error problem is to uninstall/reinstall Facebook.

    I've had to do this every few days on my Nexus 7 since their last update. Let's hope FB fixes this, pronto.

    The new Facebook app is great on my EVO, the best yet, but is almost completely useless on my Nexus 7. If I restart it will work for a minute, maybe, but there is no way I'm going to keep restarting or uninstalling and reinstalling.

    the only thing I suggest and it's what I did. I downgraded to 1.9.12. It's working fine. I was using the new one when it first came out and it worked great. I don't know if there was an update, that ruined it.

    It's happening on my Nexus, Nexus 7, Droid Bionic and Lenovo ThinkPad tablet.

    I figure it's a matter of time before we get notified by Facebook that for a donation they will fix it. They gotta make up their loss somewhere, right?

    I may have a solution for my Nexus 7 on JB...

    I removed the OS level Facebook account in Settings, cleared the Facebook app data and cache and voila... No more network connection error. I'm curious if any of you get similar results? Maybe the FB server side no likey too many/redundant connections from the same MAC address/ip? Doesn't seem to be an issue on the desktop though with multiple browsers and chat connections.

    The account does get recreated but I'm going on 4 hours without any connection errors.

    Never mind... Network errors have returned.

    After reading ppl who uninstall then reinstall to work for a few days lead me to try clearing out the data cache under androids settings. I did this and worked. For now..

    I'm having the same issue too. Even after the recent update. I usually just have to tap on the network error and it clears. Still annoying.

    Have even reset my phone o.O fix it FB

    i, too, am getting the same error. I use Pantech Vega S, and facebook doesnt seem to work properly since two days ago. I get notifications, but when i open my fb app it says "network error". Are there any solutions for this problem? I just hope that we are not being hacked

    I got this and have not installed the last update. Glad I got it though because when I checked the app settings, notifications somehow got turned back on and I did not do that. Sneaky little app!

    Seems to be an issue with the facebook app or servers.

    been looking around and the same issue is happening with iOS devices too.
