    I've posted this on several other forums and basically been told who cares about this problem because you shouldn't be using facebook anyway.

    I would like to use Facebook. It is a primary way I use to keep in contact with friends. There is no easy replacement. There is viable alternative. I can't convince everyone on my Facebook to try out some other service.

    At the moment and for the last 2 months, through several updates and versions, the android Facebook app crashes why I try to add a status, add a picture, checkin. Basically all I can use the app for is the view messages, view newsfeed. I can reply or post comments or post a status. All that causes the app to crash.

    It has also been pointed out to me that I can add a status through the website. But I can't easily add a picture or checkin. It is kind of a pain in the ass the use the full Facebook website on the phone in general.

    Is anyone else even have this same problem? I can't even seem to get that out of anyone. Is this a problem unique to my phone? I've found a lot of crashing threads, but they all date to before about May it seems and most say that problem is fixed.

    So is this a known, common problem? Is there a fix? Is there a way to go back to an old version of the app that worked?

    I have app version 1.8.1 and firmware 2.3.6.. Should go without saying that I am using a Samsung Droid Charge.

    Try going to settings - applications - manage applications - all - go to the facebook app and clear cache. I have a DROID x And not having the issue you have but there has to be a solution. Try above fix.

    From my rooted, bricked, sbf'd, rooted again and flashed DROIDX

    Yup, me too. Funny part is, I had the problem before. It resolved itself. I reflashed Liberty 3 and am now having the issue. Cleared data, cache, reinstalled, everything.

    It resolved itself a few days ago but came back. Now its just a reader for me at the moment until the next update Facebook makes.

    I had cleared cache and no success...

    I've been using the app Friendcaster. Better IMO but downside is that I can't send messages to my friends, gets an error message.
    Overall I think its better than the stock fb app
