Glad I remove Facebook app from my android phone. Honestly if I want to get on Facebook, I just wait till I get home.

Geez, I'm just going to remove the stupid app. Its honestly the most broken app I ever downloaded, but it entertains me for ten minutes with its 2 day old updates.....

Tried everything, and the app is still a piece of crap... now its leaking information, so long Facebook.
