Facebook’s most recent update — you know, the one that enabled friend tagging in status updates — also came with one unwanted feature for some: endless app crashes requiring users to force close nearly every time Facebook is launched. The problem led to a sever backlash in the apps Android Market ratings, and that was enough for the Facebook team to notice.
An even newer update has been pushed to the Android Market with the sole purpose of reigning in app instability. For users experiencing force close issues, the issue should be cleared up. If you have been finding Facebook unusable since the last update prior, you’ll want to make sure you get this new version (1.5.4) installed ASAP.
