    Facebook pictures not showing up.

    Hello!

    My Droid Charge is not showing any pictures that are on my Facebook newsfeed, it just shows a blank box. I can see profile pics and if I go into albums, I can see the album but if I click on pic to make it bigger, it won't display. Anyone have any suggestions??

    Thanks so much!!

    First off welcome!

    Well ultimately the issue lies with Facebook app. It got remarkably better with an update a while back but it's still a horrible app Imo. It happens on all of my devices what you're describing. Best thing I can offer is to log out then log back in. If that doesn't fix it, clear the data.

    To clear the data go to settings (phones settings not fb's) and go to applications, manage applications and under the "ALL" tab locate the Facebook app and select. Clear the data, restart the phone and log back into the app. If you've had specific settings in Facebook app you'll need to re set those back up.

    Awesome!

    it really is a bad app. News feeds get distorted, pics that won't load, etc. You can try an alternate app like Friendcaster. Although not perfect, it's more reliable than the FB app. The downside to apps like friendcaster is you won't see all your friends' posts. THere's settings in facebook privacy to allow or decline access to third party apps (such as friendcaster). That's why I ended up going back to the actual FB app.

    I use FB, but typically keep it frozen, as it tends to be super slow and drain my battery. When I want to use it, I typically unfreeze it and go to town. Usually once every other day. So if you use it more than that, the freeze/defrost process may be too much of an inconvenience.

    That's what makes this all the more horrifying.
    Facebook reveals Home launcher for Android* - GadgetBox on NBCNews.com

    The FB app is poor enough. Something as overarching as a launcher being written by them...yuk! I can already hear all the non tech folks saying "Android sucks" when they don't even realize it's the damn launcher they loaded (or was loaded by their carrier). Sorry, I just don't see them puling it off correctly.

    Yeah I saw that adobe. Crazy, sounds like it'll be a bunch of crummy glitchy apps instead of just one lol. We'll see though, I'm going to at least give it a try.

    I have read into how much hacking techniques it took to get Facebook working on all phones, and working as smooth(?) as it does now is a miracle. I really don't blame them too much, though it is their app. Making the app for iPhones and iPads was a lot easier than Android. That

    All that being said, their app is slow, and I'm really not looking forward to the methods they had to use to get a working app implemented into a Launcher that has so much more access to your phone.
