Lollipop problems with Facebook and Words with Friends (Nexus 5)

Since installing Lollipop, I cannot update my Facebook feed and Words with Friends does not load games in progress - just a plain black screen. I can see the first few Words screens, but when I click on a game, it goes black. Ideas?

Well Facebook has always been a problem, loading slow and taking up memory, but it's not any worse on Lollipop. At least it works just like before for me.

Uninstall / reinstall words. That should take care of the problem you are having..

OMG - you are right! I was so afraid I would lose all my games and preferences. I finally sat down this morning and ceremoniously uninstalled and reinstalled - BAM! All better!

Just a heads up for anyone else having this problem : you don't need to reinstall. I was able to fix it by clearing the app data and restarting the app.
