How long does it take crashes to load? Kidding.

I think you need to update to iOS6 as facebook is now integrated into the platform. I don't think you can use the pre-6 app and I'm quite sure of this as when they stopped support for the FarmVille app it would not work. This may be the case with the facebook app as well.

If you've jailbroken (not judging but ) have you tried going to facebook via Safari? I have and you won't miss much doing this in lieu of iOS6 and the included app.

Hope this helps.

Everyone in this house had that problem the other day, but it's cleared. I reloaded the FB app and fixed it immediately when I first had the issue.

What you need to do is update your iPhone to IOS 6, then your Facebook app to 5.1.

You can only download and install the most recent release of iOS which is iOS 6.0.x.

If my old 4 was chugging hard on iOS 6, that is going to murder a 3GS.

It may be because I'm comparing it to an old computer (IBM w/W2K) but my 3GS with iOS6 is pretty fast.

Yup Boys , That worked fine .However I"m unable to locate the Contact Icon with IO6.
Is it supposed to be hidden within the Phone App?

It's still a separate app too in iOS 6.
