    Has anyone noticed that the facebook app appears to be broken since the update to 2.2. It doesn't seem to update things properly and the chat function no longer works with incoming messages not being received?

    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.
    oh no this sucks!!!! i haven't used the app yet (i just upgraded last night), but i am a fb addict so i know it will bother me to no end! i hope they come out with an update soon!! with several other alterations that bother me to no end!! (like notifications of a person commenting on a picture should go to the PICTURE, not the person!)

    Haven't used it much since updating, but hopefully they will fix the clock at some point so that the times things happen are correct.

    Everything works mostly fine for me. Haven't tried chat, but mine updates fine. Every once in awhile things go white, and simply closing out and reopening fixes it. Hopefully an update will be coming soon.

    Yep. It's completely screwed after 2.2.

    It's definitely been very buggy since the 2.2 upgrade.

    I use FB everyday, and the white screen does pop-up every once in awhile. I'm checking on Chat right now...:eek:

    UPDATE: Sorry, can't seem to Chat with anyone right now, but I'll check tomorrow morning.

    you mean chat actually works for some people? it's never worked for me. i used to get "could not be delivered at this time, try again later". i tried since 2.2 and now i'll type a message, hit send, and it'll do nothing. it wont appear as sent text, no error message, nothing. has anyone in the UK on O2 managed to use the chat feature?

    Definitely working for me, as always. I would take a screenshot, but I'd have to XXXX out my friend's name and my PS is on my other computer.:eek: My friend is in Thailand and she's my only Friend that was online, but she was texting back to me in a matter of seconds once she responded...

    UPDATE: I've attached a pic and edited in Preview

    maybe its an O2/UK thing. i could never get it to work. be it wifi, edge or 3g. i used to get the same error message every time before 2.2. i've only tried once since i updated so i should give it another go i guess.

    Mine's been screwy too. White screens when you scroll through friend lists, feeds not updating properly.

    I have a 2G Non JB 2.2 iphone and the Facebook app appears to work OK apart from the usual update times being wrong and I have noticed that it doesn't tell me all the updates but its close enough.

    Have fun

    I noticed I had issues uploading pictures the other day while on edge (would get a failure message even though everything else in the FB app worked) and had to wait for 3G coverage to upload.

    Thought it was a network issue but might be a update issue ....

    It doesn't crash on mine but it doesn't always work as it should. I have to jump around a bit (from one notification to another) to force it to update statuses.

    The new update certainly has done something with facebook
    My friends section/status etc. Is all white.
    Thanks Apple!
    Ps. Back up took 1/2 hour before I could install.

    My backups are taking forever now too. It has been slow for the past two weeks and I don't know why. :(

    I've been having so many problems with my Facebook app since updating my iPod touch to 2.2.

    First there's the stupid timestamp issues which have affected the app itself since the last update...the developers really have to fix that because it's been weeks already.

    Then, after the 2.2 update:

    - Chat barely ever works.
    - If I'm on a page for a relatively long amount of time (say, five minutes), when I go to move up or down none of the content appears - it just comes up with white rectangle boxes where the content SHOULD be. If I scroll back the other way to where I was viewing, that content will also now be gone (it disappears as soon as it moves off the screen).
    - Updating things like Notifications and Statuses can take FOREVER. I know it isn't my Wi Fi because I can open Safari or another web application and they'll work flawlessly, then I reopen Facebook and it refuses to load anything.

    Since the 2.2 update it has also crashed A LOT. I remember on 2.0 when opening many apps would reset the iPod itself, I haven't had that problem since and have experienced absolutely no other crashes (yes, including Safari), since updating. It's really annoying moving through tabs or trying to reply to someone and as soon as I press "post" or "send"...black screen -> home screen. Incredibly annoying.
