Its probably the app error, its either not compatible with your device or the update aint working and needs fixing, id suggest to go to Google play, and leave a comment about your problem hoping it'll be taken into account, in a mean time id suggest to maybe uninstall the update?

How do you uninstall the update?

by

you go to Google play store, find the app you looking for and just tap on the uninstall button, that is if you have an internal Facebook app in your phone i mean if it came with your phone. Theres also an alternative option, you can download one of the "fake" Facebook apps, they are a lot smaller in terms of how much space they occupy on your phone, they aren't the real thing but at least they are user-friendly and you can still use Facebook :)

I also downloaded the update, now I cant get e-mails or internet. It hangs for a few seconds and then goes back to main screen. Its not an App problem, its the Samsung Update. Can't find a way to uninstall.

Just spoke to Samsung.....Facebook's app is the culprit - it is not compatible with the tablet's newest update. Contact Facebook to see when they will provide an update for their app. In the mean time go through your internet browser on your tablet to access facebook.

System updated my tab3 yesterday, as tab message requested I do so......... now facebook is not working properly. Whenever I try to go into notifcations facebook just hangs with a white screen for a couple of seconds then takes me straight out of facebook and back to my home screen! Have tried all the same things, as other people on here, to rectify the problem but nothing works?.......have also tried accessing via internet but still unable to easily access my notifications...........hate this new system update, wish I hadn't bothered as everything was running just fine before I did it.........feeling so frustrated and cross, facebook has now been rendered absolutely useless!!!!!!!.........if anyone knows how this problem can be rectified I would be very interested to know your solution........... : (

Mine now has the same problem. If you select facebook, it opens, then hangs, then goes back to the tablet homepage. Hope there's a solution soon. I have tried all the uninstall/reinstall, go back to a previous version, restarting everything, and nothing works. Commented on the facebook proram page, but heard nothing. Driving me crazy. Heeeeelllllllllppppppppp :-)

Try googling for an older version of facebook. Version 3.5 works. Once installed, go to google play and make sure auto update isnt selected

Installed the latest update for Facebook a couple days ago and since then I cannot open up the account. When I click on the icon, it goes black and stalls my phone. I have to power off and restart my phone.
