Why is it that when a software update is done, all of my Facebook messages / notifications previously received and showing in my messages are no longer available. I wanted some of those saved and available on my phone and now they're gone! If this is what happens every time, I don't want the updates. Can I not accept them?
That is a problem with the Facebook app. I have found that to be a problem too. I make sure I backup my stuff pretty regular just in case. If you want, you can ignore updates. To get rid of the little red star that tells you that you have an update, click on the update and select cancel. Hope that helps.
