We’ve been receiving reports that the Facebook app for Android has been acting a bit fussy today, with users unable to access News Feed items and the app having trouble retrieving data all around. It seems to be partially working at least (I have been able to access my latest notifications just fine), but for the time being the official VZW support twitter account is recommending users stick with the browser to access Facebook content.
Reported that Android users are having issues with the Facebook application. Recommend using browser for now. #Verizon #Droid #Android
I guess that really isn’t too big of a difference from using the app, as Facebook seems to kick you out to the browser for just about everything you click on anyway. No word on what the exact issue is that is causing the problems, but we’ll let you know if we dig anything else up.
[NOTE]: This issue apparently isn’t exclusive to Verizon, as users from all carriers and on several different devices are reporting similar issues.
