    When you sign into Facebook through your web browser, make sure you're online on the chat. If not, it won't work through the iPhone app.

    chat problems - no error msg.

    so my problem is a little diff. My chat status on the regular facebook chat is online but when I try to send a MSG on the iPhone app. It won't send anything. Nothing happens when i press send. My msg doesn't even show up. And I don't get any try again later MSG either. Used to work fine. Its really strange. I tried re-installing it but still get the same problem. If anyone could help, please reply. Thanks!!!

    Facebook's new site has caused chat to function weirdly. Sometimes when you're on the computer chatting, it won't let you send because the person has gone "offline". Refresh the page and they're back online, but try sending it again and they're "offline". Sometimes you have to wait a bit before you're able to send.

    This carries over to the iPhone Facebook Chat unfortunately.

    I've found the fix to chat problems,,
    Just follow the steps exactly::::
    When you're facing problems in chat,
    download SbSettings froms cydia>Go offline in chat> logout from fb app> close the app still active in multitasking>slide your finger along the top bar in order to open sbsettings> select respring> once respringed, open fb , sign in and wait for everything to load up once (this is important, have tried) > go to chat, go online..... And WALA!!!! Chat must work now...!!!

    Note:::: evrytime you press the home button and try to go back to the chat, the same thing starts again

    Bugs in New Facebook app

    I have similar problems with my iphone 4s ever since I installed new Facebook app. It doesn't rotate the screen anymore. It doesn't show the bottom line displaying messages, offline and online when I open messages. It doesn't allow me to delete a chat as when I slide finger on any online contact, delete icon doesn't appear. The whole thing is exasperating. Anyone?

    on the facebook topic, i thought i'd share an app i use to post future facebook messages. i'm someone who's pretty forgetful and it doesn't help that i maintain several different social media accounts. this has helped me make sure i don't forget to post something out

    the app is called schedaroo :)
