    I updated to the latest Facebook iPhone app today and I cannot login. It says Login Error. An error occurred. Please try logging in again. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Turned my phone off and on. No luck. I can login fine on my laptop and from the mobile browser version on my phone. Any ideas?

    Hm, I didn't experience this problem. Are you also logged in globally in Settings? Did you try to log out of or delete the account from there?

    When I updated, there wasn't anything I had to do; I was able to keep on using the app without taking any action related to logging in/out.

    When I updated, my news feed was blank and it told me to add friends. I logged out and could not log back in. I am able to log in in iPhone settings but not the app.

    Me too. Same issue of adding friends then logging out and being unable to log back in. I get the following error

    I have tried deleting the app, and the account in general settings. No joy with either.

    I guess it was too hard for Facebook to release an update than even works. What a disaster, :(

    It seems to be a widespread problem. Twitter is full of similar complaints.... Hopefully it is a FB side issue they can sort without the need for a new app update.

    just tried the old version on my iPad, logged out and back in, deleted the account and set it up again. All worked fine, so it is something with the new version.

    Same problems here, updated, but my friend had been logged in, so I logged out, and then the ios single sign in didn't work, so I tried manually, and I get this error

    It's really frustrating that Facebook can't do anything right when it comes to mobile apps :mad:
