    While I am browsing the FB and FB messenger, the app is crashing. I restarted the device and also cleared all cache.. installed a new app too... still the problem persists. The version of iPhone is 10.3.1

    Tell us about your device. What model, how much memory is free? What else is running in the background.

    You try deleting the FB App and then reinstalling it?
    Do any other apps crash or the device running unstable?

    Weird, I'd also suggest a restore via itunes to see if that fixes it maybe.

    You could try deleting the apps, restarting the phone, and then re-installing them...

    I still think 10% free storage is still the minimum. Not enough even then for iOS update - unless using iTunes - and even then is low.

    700mb is a lot but still awful low and could be part of the problem.

    Its hard sometimes with 16GB devices.
    And once you run out of storage or run very low then the device will start running crappy.
    Even if you go and delete a bunch of stuff after it will continue run buggy.
    If that's the case I'd go for an itunes restore, setup as new and leave yourself plenty of available storage so you dont have such issues in the future.

    Applejuiced pretty well summed it up.

    You might have to make hard choices and delete some stuff you think you got to have so your phone runs better. Apple's OS likes lots of headroom and I am betting that FB is causing the problem.

    Yes, and the FB app can use up lots of available storage.
    My FB app currently lists that it uses 1.3GB's of my storage/usage section.
    Its the highest amount out of everything else I have installed on my 32GB 7 Plus.

    Likely the same on my phone when I had it installed. I deleted my account and the app on my phone almost a year ago and have to say I no longer miss it, not even a little.:)

    I missed it a lot at first, not the selfies, but just keeping up with what is going on. It just got a bit out of control and I realized I need to channel that time into more profitable time. Two of my friends did the same and they also have no regrets.
