    hello guest,

    there is a high possibility that the app was not properly installed.
    firstly uninstall the app.

    go to main menu and tap on google play store
    when app opens, go to search option and search "facebook"
    tap on desired result and hit install.
    facebook app will be downloaded to your device.

    and check whether you have a valid data connection or not. without data connection app will not be able to communicate with the servers.

    update the app if it is available.

    Re: Facebook App not working Properly

    There are three major causes of this problem
    1.your data connection consuming too much traffic and down srever from the app
    2Maybe your email id and password get encrypted with app
    3.the important data or preferences of app is mistakenly deleted.
    Try these solution
    1.uninstall and download again from market
    2.try the upgraded or downgrade version if u found anywhere in the internet
    delete the facebook data folder from sd card or system before downloading new version.
    not sure for these solutions

    Hello Dear,

    A lot of sites are nowadays providing various FACEBOOK apps. They design it specifically for a particular handset.

    The facebook app that you are using may not be fully compatible with your phone.

    Their might be another possibility that your application got crashed or not properly installed.

    Virus presence may also result in barring the functioning of your app.


    To get rid from this problem i suggest you to first scan your phone with a good ANTI -VIRUS like McAfee or Quickheal.
    These anti viruses are available in play store.

    Then, uninstall your app and again install it. If it is again not working properly then you should DELETE it and go to
    MARKET or PLAY STORE and download & install facebook app which is compatible with your phone.

    Happy to help you.............

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software or virus regarding issue to must have to reset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.
