    I spent all day trying to find out what this was. Kept deleting the download and searching online for any info. Once I got home and my wi-fi was on it downloaded without me noticing. ARGH!!!! I deleted all of Facebook just for that and now I found this article on Engadget: Facebook allegedly skirts Google Play store with latest update, adds auto-download of newest versions

    This is not acceptable for me. No more FB on my phone!

    Well, I was also facing the same problem for last 20+ hrs.
    I did following things to stop it..
    I use Samsung Galaxy phone.
    I went to Downloads>> Other Downloads
    There I found the Facebook Build 141046 downloading. I selected it and clicked on CANCEL.
    It worked out.
    Hope, this will help you.

    I did the same as you, delete facebook and manually delete the download, but now the store play does not work and I can not download facebook again.

    It never finishes downloading to actually see what it is. It just keeps "downloading". It's been doing it for 3 days now and I've tried everything. Just "force stopped" my download manager per above. Hopefully it doesn't kick back in or I'll have to factory reset.

    Forget the official Facebook app... Friendcaster puts it to shame. The link is for the free version. I'm using the paid.

    I like friendcaster... but I didn't like how it didn't send me notifications right away... and it didn't show the latest posts in my newsfeed.

    The same thing has been going on with my galaxy s3 on Tmobile for the past day or more. Restarted my phone, force closed downloads, and it just started going again. But I connected to wifi and it almost instantly went away. Guess that's the fix! That's really strange though. Anyone know why that would stop like that? I was thinking maybe there's a bug in the build update that has trouble with cellular connections.

    Settings / security / uncheck "unknown sources"

    Apparently this update is only for those who allow sideloading of apps (it wouldn't be possible without that, since it's circumventing the Play Store).

    Every time I cancelled the update, it would just pop up again...disabling sideloading stopped it. I considered just installing it and being done with it...but I would rather force Facebook to play nicely and not allow this sneaky move.

    I uninstalled Facebook then turned on Wifi and connected to a network. It stopped after that. I then reinstalled Facebook. What a mess.

    I have a Revolution, by the way.

    Damn Facebook. Like everyone else I force stopped the download then when it started again I force stopped and uninstalled it from the play store so it wouldn't be tempted to start back up again. I figured I could always go back and install it later after I find out what all this facebook sneakiness is about. I thought the problem was solved unitl I tried to go to the play store today and it crashed, and continues to crash every time I open it even after a couple of restarts and a battery pull. I'm also getting the error "Unfortunately, the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped." I did a android central search and found that most people could resolve that issue by going to applications manager and making sure that downloads is enabled but mine already is enabled. Any ideas? Do you think the facebook and gapps issue are related?

    i have a kyocera rise and it was doing it on mine as well, until i WiFi-ed it and it completed pretty quick. I had already tried uninstalling facebook and forcing stop on download manager. It was even trying to download app after I uninstalled FB and then rebooted my phone, so there was no application available to update too. Weird
