    I just tried to take a photo from within the Facebook app on my 3GS and the camera just hanged at the shutter. Has anyone else had the same problem?

    I blame facebook. Is anything they make reliable? They haven't had an update since 3.0 so it's probably something to do with that.

    Does it on my 3G too - looks like a problem with OS 3.0 compatibility rather than the 3G S

    I think Facebook needs to update the app for 3.0

    For now, put photo into camera roll, and then upload. Sure fix's for lots of apps will be coming.

    You guys might be surprised, Facebook probably won't be in a hurry to release video. Youtube is already hundreds of millions of dollars in the red because of bandwith costs, and Facebook isn't always headed up in the charts, they're having to deal with bandwith as well, and having a ton of people uploading videos could spell trouble. I think even Youtube was worried, I mean look how many people uploaded simple "iPhone 3GS video test" videos, when hundreds of thousands of people do it, it really adds up and costs them money, so Facebook might avoid it so that some person won't upload practically every video they take.

    Good point. Oh well I am fine with pictures for now :) I'm just glad they released a fix so quickly.
