Nobody else seems to be keen on answering this question, and it was starting to bother me.
So I looked in preferences and found that under the "Web" tab, there is "Automatically check for newly published albums" setting, checked by default.
Looks like you can un-check it and the problem goes away. Of course that feature does, too, but since I do all my photo publishing through Aperture it doesn't bother me.
I suspect the problem is an intermittent connection with Facebook, but I'm a little surprised since Facebook has always been one of the web's most reliable sites, and whatever's happening isn't impacting my regular Facebook browsing at all.
Hope that helps.

Yep - same problem, very annoying. Have used the above advise and will hope for the best. I expect Aperture 4 to have resolved this issue and should hopefully be more tune with the social media world as I find Aperture 3 a little dated having come from using iPhoto for many years.

I now no longer seem to have the problem - I don't even know when it stopped. But I suspect an update covered it. Are your updates up to date?
At present I'm finding Aperture is taking ages shutting down "updating preview sharing"

Yes, I've got the latest updates. The slow shut-down happens ocassionally, it seems to occur mostly when linked to iPhoto libraries so for me the two working together doesn't seem efficient. Its probably much better to import and convert to Aperture libraries although I still prefer iPhoto for speed.

HI there I'm also haveing this problem. Just unable to connect to Facebook. Constantly getting this error whilst trying to connect to my Facebook account for the first time: "unknown error occurred: please try again later". I am accessing this via Aperture > prefs > Web > 'add an account' and also trying via the toolbar > share > Facebook.
I am using Aperture 3.3.2 (connected to the web). Have checked my passwords are correct. I did have a previous connection with Aperture and FB, this was removed from FB > Apps.
Under the web tab, I have no accounts, so there is no ability to uncheck "automatically check..."
With thanks in advance too for any assistance.
