    I have never encountered this before. It was happening everywhere that I saw this popup but now it's just when I open the Facebook app. I went to settings and it said Facebook was taking up 37.4 GB! How is this possible, and is there any way to clear it?

    Cached videos and pictures? Alas, aside from deleting the app and re-installing, I have yet to find another fix.

    I didn't know how too before and had to restore my iPad Air 2 to clear "Other."

    What if I don't want the most current version of Facebook, can I delete it and reinstall the app from backup in iTunes?

    That's crazy talk. Might as well just leap off a cliff.

    I believe so.

    Mind, last time I did something similar was back on iOS 4/5. Didn't want to upgrade the iPod Touch 4th gen to iOS 5 but the latest version of the Stanza app didn't work properly on iOS 4.

    as long as you still got the old Facebook IPA on your iTunes u can still synch that version yeah. back up the ipa just in case cuz iTunes may overwrite it with the latest and u will have to manually replace it with your backed up older version

    It has to be cache. Do you have the HD video setting enabled?
    Maybe your iPhone is just full of HD video from Facebook.
    Delete and reinstall the app, it will take a minute

    Yikes! Just checked, FB is sucking up 5G on my phone. Luckily I have room to spare. Still, time to delete and reinstall.
