I've never seen that problem on any other handset with the Facebook app.
I tried a data clear with no joy. Then a data clear and uninstalled the app (system app), are installed from market and still the same problem.
A quick google search shows that many people have had this problem with the FB app from time to time. And they weren't on the G300.
In fact if J just type FACEBOOK ANDROID B into google it suggests "BLACK SCREEN" and "BLANK SCREEN" as the top two.

The app used to be great minus the few annoying bugs aka wouldn't always load pictures right. Now all I get is my connection times out with anything and everything can't even pull up my notifications let alone my news feed. This was the WORST update I have ever seen

Slow and glitchy
I have the lucid and as precious reviews said, its slow and awful. Black screen, blank screen, can't like or comment. I won't be using fb mobile anymore

I cant believe how bad this facebook app keeps getting.
I feel like everytime i get on this app something else wrong happens, and thats horrible cuz im on it everyday like 5 times a day. Sometimes it wont let me like any posts. Almost everytime i try to look at a picture it freezes up and wont load the pic so iback out hit it again and it only shows the tags in the picture then i back out hit it again and it finally shows the picture or it just crashes. App crashes at least 2 times a day running on a fully updated Evo 4g and on wifi so its not my internet. FixIt
Btw Firefox Android running Phoney Add On gives you a completely working Desktop FB if you can put up with zooming in and out everywhere. Telling FB to use the desktop version of the site in standard Android browser is buggy but using Firefox set to identify itself as desktop firefox works well for me.
