First you get the notification:
Then you get "Allow Access" even though Facebook is working fine.
Then the notification pops up again...
Which brings you back to the FB authorization page...
And round and round we go...
... until you clear your notifications bar without clicking the notification itself.
To get out of this click "Clear All" under notifications without clicking on the notification itself.
Three things bother me about this:
- This is designed to make sure you give "Samsung Galaxy" access to all of your Facebook content. It has nothing to do with your phone's ability to use the Facebook App!
- They make it circular (Notifcation -> App -> Notifcation) so they get as many people as possible to give them this information.
- They tell you absolutely nothing about what this information will be used for.
Samsung where all communication is done on their devices, do they really need your FB info to get ahead. At least make it optional to be totally at Samsung's mercy. Now I know there are other options on the market and that would give you an out when it comes to personal privacy, but come on guys. You have a good product and a good market share. Don't listen to the bean counters when they say "Hey, we can make a few extra bucks by mining FB data." Respond with, "Yeah, but why? What does that do for our customers?" And if they have a valid answer, let us know (the people who pay you monies).
