This answer is from a public API point of view. Jailbreaking will obviously change this. The permissions are clearly from Android where apps have much more 'free' access to the device—this is what the permissions translate to from an iOS point of view for this site. Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity Not going to happen. Apps ...

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 ...

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.

The article is talking about the Android version of the app. A number of these permissions are not available on iOS. And where they are available they require user intervention. That said, the article is to a certain extent link bait.

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.

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 ...

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/" ...

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

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

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.

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 ...

This is currently not possible with the standard iOS calendar sync. Signing in to Facebook on your iOS device and showing the events on your calendar will synchronise the entire calendar from the server on your device, including events to which you have not accepted. Calendar on iOS or OS X does not respect the response which you have given for the ...

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 ...

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 ...

Probably the best way is to do it through Safari. As far as I know Safari doesn't change the size or quality of uploaded images. Keep in mind that max size in pixels of an image on Facebook currently is limited to 2048x2048px. If you try to upload a bigger image Facebook will resize and reencode it automatically and the result will not be optimal.

Nothing is allowed until you poke holes in the app sandbox. iOS requires apps to request permission to access data outside their sandbox. Open the settings app and look at privacy on iOS to see what your iOS and app have negotiated. Most people expose far more data to Facebook by entering their credentials in the Internet Accounts section of the iOS ...

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 ...
