Facebook for Android software update addresses some random crashes with the app
Don’t you hate it when you write up a long post on Facebook for Android and you’re on the verge of clicking that post button, then suddenly out of nowhere, the entire thing inexplicably crashes and exits out? Needless to say, some people are simply programmed to automatically copy written text prior to hitting that post button, since they’ve probably been burned too often in the past, but for the rest of us, we’re left steaming with anger.

Luckily, it seems that those random crashes with Facebook for Android are being addressed in the latest software update for it. Available right now to download through Google Play, users can post with no worries thanks to this latest update. Specifically, it’s noted that this version “fixes crashes after logout and long period of app activity.”

Well, that’s pretty much it for this update, seeing there isn’t anything else new found with this one. Nevertheless, you can now post or do whatever with the app without the terror of it randomly crashing. So if you haven’t seen that notification just yet, head on over to Google Play and download the new update yourself.

ok so now i know that the facebook app isnt just bad for iOS. its honestly just easier to go through the browser and do it that way. the app takes for ever to load and ill have notifications that it wont let me see right away. really annoying.
