    I have a hero and had the same problem. Not sure if this will work on the droid, but I went to settings, applications, manage applications, chose the Facebook app and chose force stop. After that it started updating again.

    Having the same issue here. The widget is stuck on november 30th for me and refuses to update. I have googled this over and over and have not been able to find a solution. I cannot find settings for the widget itself, only the app. Anyone have a solution?

    in fact, it won't even update, manually. I can tap on it, and it launches the full facebook app, and THAT updates just fine, just not the widget on the home screen.

    also, I tried the above suggestion, however the facebook app and widget do not show up under "Manage Applications."

    The Facebook app is rather disappointing coming from a BlackBerry (I was able to open notifications from my Messages folder, and have the application automatically remove those emails from my gmail inbox.)

    Then again, Facebook isn't that important to me, so I can manage.

    Is anyone else having this problem? The latest status update I am seeing on the Facebook widget is from 6 hours ago. If I go into Facebook, I can clearly see a bunch of status updates between now and 6 hours ago.

    I changed my "update interval" from 1 hour, to 30 minutes... but still, 1 hour is a lot less than 6 hours. That still didn't solve the issue anyways.

    Has anyone else had this problem and figure it out?

    Edit>> I'm actually have a similar problem with the Weather and Flip Clock widget I purchased... it was 11:30am and the clock still said "11:00am" on the widget. Am I missing a setting somewhere that is stopping my widgets from updating?

    Edit 2>> Facebook widget just updated on the home screen now... go figure. The second I finally make a post about it. Is it possible I killed whatever needs to run in the background for the widget to update? I did do "KILL selected apps" on EVERYTHING a couple of times with Advanced Task Killer. I'm thinking this might have been my problem. I'm such an Android noob.
    Concerning the Weather and Flip Clock widget I have found if you have a task killer that I was having this problem after I killed all my apps, so if you add the widget you your ignore list so it doesn't get killed with the rest of the apps you should be ok, it solved the problem for me.

    As for the facebook widget I gave up on getting it to work and just have been going to facebook via the browser and that is working for me.

    I decided to just forget the widget.

    Another widget that doesn't seem to be working is the calendar widget. Even though I manually set Christmas day as an event, and a friend's birthday on the 21st, it still shows that I have no upcoming events.

    I'm just convinced that most of Droid's widgets are broken. Oh well, they were ugly and used up too much of your space, anyway.

    I've completely given up on the Facebook apps to be honest and just have links to the mobile site saved in a links folder on my home screen. Works every time, and no wondering when it will start working properly. I tried the native app, as well as Bloo - and they both lived up to Bloo's name (as in, they blew!)

    I agree, they need to get the app's bugs worked out. Its not like they haven't had time to address these issues with the other Google phones.

    I removed the widget like a day after I had it. Both the widget and the app need a lot of work...it was one of the only things I was disappointed in when coming over from my Storm.

    It may just be me but since Thomas OS update my Facebook widget is working dang well. The app however still sucks though. I do wish they would mirror the UI of the blackberry app. I really liked it.

    Forget Facebook, they add new features all the time but it never works right, Facebook hates Google and android. They just like ,Apple ruin competition so they don't have to do their jobs well or be innovative cuz there no other option, where ya gonna go MySpace? Kinda like Apple releases one phone a year, and disables features so they can rape the inexperienced user to pay for stuff that should be free ie Bluetooth file transfer, why would u want to share pics and ringtones etc when u can buy them on itunes, just use ur unlimited atm card right? I have a solution. GOOGLE PLUS, FORGET FACEBOOK AND MAKE IT THE NEXT MYSPACE, FORGET APPLE AND JOIN ANDROID WHERE USERS ARE TREATED LIKE MORE THAN ATMS. Tell ur friends, next upgrade, choose an OS that let's u use he features u pay for and promotes competition, cuz in the end Apple bad for smartphone users, unless u only want one phone to choose from a year and have same phone as everyone around u. BTW its crazy expensive and u can only use the features Apple let's u use for the way they want u to use it.
