Hi guys. I'm really, REALLY frustrated. I've been having this annoying problem for weeks now, and it really keeps me from doing a lot of things.
Every time I try to link my fb account to any other app (Candy Crush, FriendCaster, Flipboard, you name it) I get this damned error:

It really is keeping me from doing plenty of things, and I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling facebook, I have tried clearing the cache, I have tried it on 3G and on WiFi, I have tried rebooting my phone, I've tried everything.

Please, please, help me out here, I'm truly out of ideas.

Thank you for your time.

Hey MosbyF,

Facebook depends on cookies and when you have too many built up it can cause it to run slowly or crash.

Please try the following:
Go into settings, safari, clear cookies and data. Then close the Facebook app from the multitask menu (double tap the home button, hold your finger on one of the apps, press the cross in the corner). When you reopen Facebook you should have to log in again but it should all reload from scratch.

Let me know if that helps.
