The predominant theory as to why the current Facebook app for iOS is so sluggish is that the app: suffers from its heavy use of JavaScript in a UIWebView component which does not currently benefit from the "Nitro" Javascript engine which is available to Mobile Safari is poorly designed The app uses very little native code, and thus most of your ...

The Facebook integration wasn't available when this question was asked - it was added in OS X 10.8.2 in September 2012. To activate Twitter and Facebook sharing, you must first configure at least one Twitter and / or Facebook account via System Preferences -> Mail, Contacts & Calendars -> Add Account -> Twitter (or Facebook). Once you've ...

Honestly I don't see any benefit in removing the Twitter/Facebook libraries. It may break the installed version as well as lead to problems when upgrading to 10.8.1 etc. If you want to be sure that nothing you do is ever ending up in Twitter or Facebook just don't log in to these services in Preferences.

These steps fixed the problem for me: Disable the account. Check 'Automatically find server and port'. Enable the account again.

First, this is a really good question. Wow. I've been trying for days to figure out how to attack this one. I set up "Charles Web Debugging Proxy" on my Mac and set up my iPhone to hit it. First, it hits http://api.facebook.com/restserver.php, which spits this back: <chat_connect_response xmlns="http://api.facebook.com/1.0/" ...

Facebook updated its chat system, breaking Adium's support. You can still connect to Facebook but you need to setup the account as a Jabber account. Your username will be Your_Facebook_Username@chat.facebook.com. The server is chat.facebook.com. The port is 5222 and you should not use SSL.

You cannot re-share posts from the iOS Facebook app. You can re-share posts if you: Browser to https://www.facebook.com/ in mobile Safari Log in Click the three bar icon in the upper left hand corner to bring up the side bar Scroll to the very bottom of the side bar Click the "Desktop Version" link at the very bottom of the side This will give you ...

There were some bugs in the FB app for notifications, but you should be able to disable the notifications on an app-by-app basis in at the iOS level from Settings -> General -> Notifications (or Settings -> Notifications ... I don't have an iOS 4 device handy to double-check).

This was covered by MG Siegler over at Paris Lemon last week, the explanation of how it does it is here. Basically, iOS provides it's own Keychain functionality and if you know the Keychain key, then you can save and read data between apps that you write. In this case, the Facebook Camera app is reading data saved by the Facebook app.

Just of note that Facebook is notorious for being extremely flakey when delivering notifications of any kind (whether they be system wide through the home screen icon, or even in-app). If you have Push enabled on both devices, the problems could lie within Facebook. Also note that it may (read: should) be the case that when you check your account on one ...

Did you setup your account using the "Facebook chat" wizard? If so, you can delete this account, it's not working anymore since Facebook enabled to Jabber access. You should try to create a Jabber-type account and enter those informations: Username: your_facebook_username@chat.facebook.com Password: same as your Facebook profile Server: chat.facebook.com ...

Unfortunately, the Facebook for iPad app does not allow this in the native app. One way to do this on the iPad is to log into Facebook from Safari and share a post as you would from any web browser. Another possibility is the Friendly Plus for Facebook app. I'm not sure if it allows sharing of posts, but it does say in the release notes for version 3.5.3 ...

Try uninstalling the app, restarting your phone, and reinstalling it from the App Store. This should resolve the issue.

If there is something FaceBook is good at, it's in bothering it's users :) So make sure you've unchecked those items: Make sure you've switched the Notification Center-slider to off and the Alert Style to none in such a way FaceBook is listed in the Not In Notification Center. And if you go to Settings < FaceBook, make sure you're Push ...

I think that iPhoto would not give you a choice of photo resolution. Just upload the photos through the Facebook app for iPad.

There is an easier option. Go to the contact that has been merged. Click edit. Click the minus icon next to the Facebook card at the bottom of the contact. The two cards will spring apart and you will have two contacts. Hit save.

You can change vibration settings by opening the Settings.app and selecting the "Sounds" option. The two first options are "Vibrate on Ring" and "Vibrate on Silent". Turn these off to disable all vibrations. However, this will disable vibrations system wide for all apps, not just Messages. To get as close as possible to disabling vibrations for just the ...

It only deletes from the phone. It will not delete the Facebook account from Facebook.

There are two, both from Facebook. It's available in the Messages section of Facebook app, as well as the standalone Facebook Messenger app. The standalone app uses a denser interface, and would be an improvement if you were going to use this heavily, but the section of the complete app isn't much worse.

Your question is really confusing but let me try to answer it the best I can. Let me start by mentioning that this is why I hate Facebook contact syncing. People (like myself) don't use their real info and when you sync data you end up with a mess in your address book. I personally would suggest that you don't do it that way. My contacts that I set up ...

Turns out I was wrong; you can configure this on iPhone. As the guide on this page taught me: Open Settings Scroll down to the application list and select Facebook Choose Push Notifications Now, in my case it was probably Nearby Friends that I mostly wanted to disable. I ended up turning off some others too:

When you add a Facebook to your mac, iPhoto can be set it to auto sync new photos. To disable it change your Facebook password or search the iPhoto settings / Facebook permissions to disable auto sync. Alternately, removing the Facebook account from iPhoto or the OS (in the Mail, Contacts, Calendars preference pane) would do the trick as well.

Sadly, unless you have a computer with that accounts signed version of the old Facebook app, you can't get the old version from the iTunes Store. Deleting the app should have removed all preferences, so you can only make sure the crashes are being reported to Apple and hope the app is popular enough to get a bug fix rapidly. To restore the old app from a ...

Facebook will actively terminate your connection if you log-in from any other client like the Facebook web, or your mobile phone. Even with just one client logged in, you should expect Facebook to close the connection anyway. This happens with everything I've tried, libpurple based clients (Admium, Pidgin on Linux...) gets disconnected now and then. Those ...

Open up your contact card that is linked to your autofill Change the label on your facebook email to 'other' or something else and change the label on the email that needs to be auto filled to 'email' or 'home' if 'email' is not available. If that doesn't work unlink facebook and link facebook again. Facebook should now be at the bottom. Autofill should ...

Log into Facebook, click on the Gear for Preferences, then go to Account Settings, then choose Security. Under Security, you can create App Passwords, which are application specific passwords you can use where two step authentication won't work. Create a new one for Messages, then use that as your Password to log into Facebook in Messages.

I had this problem too. Turns out the PandaBar app was to blame. It had overridden the Control-Command-F keyboard shortcut for posting to Facebook what I was listening to. Go into PandaBar Preferences -> Shortcuts and change or clear the "Post to Facebook" shortcut. Then the full screen shortcut will work as expected in all your other apps, without ...

You can either leave one of the apps open at night so it will refresh or get something like Boxcar, which would be a solution more fitting to your needs. Boxcar will push notifications from facebook and Twitter, and then you can launch Boxcar to see the updates.
