    Hi! Often such behavior is caused by not keeping apps updated? have you updated the Facebook app recently? Tom

    I can't give you a fix or a reason, but I can suggest a work-around that's helped me with some other Apps.

    Try deleting the app from your iPhone (hold the icon until they all start jiggling around, select the "X" for the Facebook app, accept the prompt to delete with all data).

    Then, sync the iPhone to iTunes once.

    Next, go to the "Apps" page in iTunes and from the list of apps on the left hand side apply a tick back to re-install the App onto the iPhone. You can put it on the right page etc at this time.

    Sync to re-install the App.

    ...This has fixed some crashing app behaviour for me with e.g. Layar, although I haven't specifically tried it with the Facebook app. It works by deleting all cached App data on the phone allowing it to be re-created on re-install.
