    Almost daily, I get a popup on my Bionic stating that "Facebook is not responding" and asking me if I want to close the program. This happens for many other programs as well. Usually if I hit "wait", it'll just unfreeze on its own. I don't usually have many apps running simultaneously.

    This is a launch Bionic, never rooted, and currently on ICS. It has been very sluggish after the ICS update, and I already factory reset the phone after updating (I also cleared the cache).

    I'd really rather not factory reset again if I can avoid it. Is there anything else I can do to fix this? I am almost to the point where I'll buy a new phone, even though I'd rather wait until the summer when some newer models (with hopefully better battery life) will launch

    While it may not be a real fix, you might use another FB app like FriendCaster. It's very quick on loading. You could also clear the cache again.

    I remember reading about 6-9 months ago on a study of the most resource using apps on Android and iThings of the top 100 apps. The worst offender was Facebook. It used an insane amount of battery power, used alot more data than it needed to, and wasn't optimized to minimize CPU usage. The other bad one I can think of off the top of my head was Angry Birds.

    The article recommended ditching the Facebook app for FriendCaster, but the article said that even switchings apps doesn't solve the inherent problem with the Facebook framework. Facebook apps really require constant calling home to stay up to date, and as more features are added to Facebook you can only expect this to get worse.

    I refuse to use any Facebook apps or Angry Birds(the others were stuff I had never used and never would so I didn't bother to remember them) because they're such problem laden apps.
