Motorola Droid X :: Facebook Live Feed - REAL Facebook Page On Droid X
Aug 5, 2010
I'm sure this isn't news to any of you veterans, but this is my first android device so please bare with me. I'm using the facebook app and have noticed that neither the app itself or the widget show the actual facebook live feed or provide a way to access it....
Of course my next thought was "well what if I just use the facebook page in a browser window". Turns out that's not as simple as I thought! Apparently facebook not only has a mobile page, it also has a "touch" page that it likes to route you to. Neither the mobile or the touch facebook pages have a way to access the live feed either....
When I purchased my droid a month ago, all the pics on facebook for the live/news feed were showing up perfectly. About 2 weeks ago, none of the pictures display. They only have a "x" next to the update. At the bottom of my profile page, there is an option that shows: Photos: Off - On - Max. The setting is set to On.
When I go to www.touch.facebook.com, the default view is the news feed. When you click on the news button, it changes to live feed. However, after I comment on someone's status or picture, etc, and then I click the back arrow to go back to the live feed, it defaults back to news feed. Also, if I am on live feed and click on the home button, it again defaults to news feed. Is there a way to permanently keep live feed on all the time?
This is the first problem that I have had with my droid. Actually I dont even consider it a problem just curious if anyone else has run into this. This morning my news feed wouldnt load any of the older posts. Then I uploaded a picture this morning 12/24 and it showed the date I uploaded it was on tuesday the 22nd at 4:28 PM.
For some reason, my Facebook App doesn't show the News Feed anymore. It worked this morning, but not anymore. When I click the News Feed button, it just says "Loading User Info" and then it shows my info.Anyone know how to fix this?
Is there any way to access a Facebook non-user page (ex: Musician, Product, etc) through an API through Android? I saw that there is a Facebook Android SDK but I haven't been able to figure out if this can be done.
Recently did some kind of update on my Hero. Now, when I click on my Facebook icon, and then the News Feed, all I get is "no content". How do I get my content to show on my Hero screen like it used to?
my facebook app wont load the news feed it keeps saying error occured while fetching data i have restarted the phone several times and cant uninstall the app its not listed in the app list I can still view my friends and post but I cant see the news feed.
I was trying to remove all the damn Facebook birthday's from my Google Calendar on my Galaxy S3. When I finally managed to do that, I now have a new app called "cover feed" and something called "Home" displaying stuff from Facebook on my lock screen!!!!
How do I get rid of this? I didn't download it, or okay it, or turn it on via my settings and now it's just making unnecessary steps every time I want to unlock my phone.
Like everyone who's updated to 2.1, I'm experiencin the same bugs with Facebook (i.e. all my FB contacts show up in my dialer and my txt msgs). Anyways, I was toolin around in Accounts & Sync under Settings. Right now, the accounts I have set up are Google, Weather, and Facebook for HTC Sense. When I click Add an Account, there's something called just "Facebook," in addition to the "Facebook for HTC Sense."I've always known there were two Facebook apps (or whatever you wanna call them) on my phone, cause when I want to share a pic I take, I can do it using either "Facebook" or "Facebook for HTC Sense." I always share the picture using "Facebook" because it allows me to post a comment as well.Anyways, getting back to Accounts & Sync, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on how these two apps differ. Maybe if I choose to sync the "Facebook" account as opposed to "Facebook for HTC Sense," that could solve some of these issues we're all having? I have no idea, but I'm hesitant to do anything for fear of clogging up my phone's contact list with Facebook friends.
Has anyone figured out the difference between syncing Facebook for HTC Sense in the account syncing section vs. plain Facebook? I am trying to figure out if the one I'm using (Facebok for HTC Sense) is using up too much memory.
My phone memory is around 33% whereas my husband's memory is 64%! He has very few contacts and I'm wondering if the syncing with Facebook is taking up all my phone memory (vs SD Card memory which is fine).
friend's need help on posting the feed in facebook when string contains double quote,at the time facebook haven't accepting. for example if the content is something like this, Help on posting "feed" in facebook for android. suppose i need to post above at the time the feed title is getting null because of double quotes,how can i replace it with the same i have to post.
I am probably reposting, but i can't find the exact answer im looking for (if you know the thread, please link it).
Facebook for HTC Sense is a POS. We all know that. But what is killing me is that I can set up a "sync" my HTC Eris with Fb for HTC Sense (that doesnt actually sync) but not for the standard Facebook app.
The HTC Sense Facebook App does a terrible job of syncing contacts w/ the phone, so I am trying to do it thru the Facebook for Android App.
I) Should I just keep on trying with the HTC App even tho its not fully working or syncing?
When I go to Menu> Settings> Accounts&sync>Add account (after removing sycing w/ FB for HTC Sense) I can add an account for: Facebook -or- Facebook for HTC Sense.
But, when I try to click on Facebook, nothing happens. Fb for HTC still works and I can add the account to that, but I wont get the contacts again. (I think).
II) What is going on w/ my Facebook for Android app? (I have updated it, too).
Im have trouble merging my facebook contacts and my phone contacts. I have changed the names so that they correspond with each other but for some reason they still appear on my list as two separate contacts. How do i merge them?
Has anyone found a way to take someone's facebook photo and add it to the Droid contact list? When I open my contacts, most of them have photos, which have been pulled from FaceBook, but 3rd party apps, such as Handcent SMS, only pull the images I have set for my contacts.Has anyone found a workaround to this issue?
Just in case anyone's missed the Facebook Live announcement,the most interesting thing for me so far has been the updated Android App.It's live in the Android Market now, if it doesn't show up straight away, go to Settings - Applications - Market - Force Stop & Clear Cache then look again.Apologies if this has already been posted, I looked in a couple of boards and couldn't see anything.
Has anyone been having issues with the facebook app today? I can look at my friends, my wall, my friend's walls. But for some reason, when I go to look at my news feed, it returns with a [null] error and displays "No Content". I've already both rebooted the phone and cleared out the cached app data via "manage applications". Any more suggestions or is anyone else in the same boat?
As I wait for my Droid X to arrive (in a few days) Im concerned about some banter I saw on another forum about Droid X integration with Facebook / Contacts' and that it was "bad"
I currently have HTC Hero and love how facebook and gmail contacts integrate. You can choose which contacts are linked and it doesnt merge FB people if i dont have them in GMAIL. Like the facebook photos populating the contact and access to FB albums and statuses for my gmail contacts. It works really well.
But this banter I heard on Droid X indicated the motorola ver of this social integration is not so ellegant. That it merges all facebook contacts and something about if you use backup manager it saves new contacts to the phone NOT to Gmail!
This concerns me as I love the elegance of all contacts being in GMAIL. Can someone with a droid x who perhaps came from HTC Sense explain how contact management with facebook is different? Is it "Bad"?
Ok so I just flashed JRummy's remix last night and since then I haven't been able to get my Facebook account to sync... I do the Settings>Accounts and sync>Add Account>Facebook and all it does is go back to the add account page... I had this problem before I used JRummy's so I don't think it is the ROM... (that time I just kept hitting facebook and it eventually worked).
Why can't i get any notifications from facebook? I have it set so the notification refreshes every 30 mins, but that doesn't work either.. someone commented on my wall and even after 2 hours, i didn't get any notification. is this just how the facebook application is? if it is, are there any other (better) facebook app for droid?
Is it the app itself or the DX? Also I have gone through the browser and clicked "full site" and still get the "touch site" which appears the same as the app version. It doesn't always update and/or my post's won't go through. Also it doesn't show birthdays, which is annoying. Can you get the full site or is there a better FB app out there?
