    This happens about every 1-2 months, at which point I delete it and reinstall it from my iTunes backup. I am using the older version of it as it allows me to still use the in-app messaging service.

    This time, however, it is not working. After deleting and reinstalling the problem persists. Any idea what is causing this crash? I assumed it had something to do with excessive data or cache which is why the delete/reinstall previously fixed it. But now I don't know.

    I am currently using the latest version and it is awful, lol. Aside from the inability to use the in-app messenger the overall layout of the app has declined dramatically. Anyone have any idea what might be causing this or any suggestions? Thanks!

    I should also note it works when I use the current version. I installed it briefly then reverted to the backup older version and it worked again for a short time then it began crashing again

    Your iPhones telling you to stop using Facebook. You should listen to it ;)

    Ok seriously... Delete all traces from your device. Reboot (power and home till you see apple logo) then install the latest version and download messenger. By using the old unsupported version of the app your just causing yourself a headache.

    I'm still on an older version as well. Not the most stable, but it certainly doesn't crash every time I open it. Running iOS 8.1.

    Unfortunately it sounds like using an outdated version can result in unexpected issues like the ones you might be experiencing.

    as the post above States. Your using an unsupported version of Facebook on your device. Issues are bound to crop up. I gave you the solution to your issue which is to update and live with the separate apps
