Facebook FAQ

What are the differences Between Facebook for HTC Sense and Facebook for Android Application?

Facebook for HTC Sense is not a standalone application. It is integrated into People, Friend Stream, and
Gallery to give you up-to-date information about your Facebook contacts (their status updates and new
photos) in these applications.

The Facebook for Android application is a standalone application. Use this application to do most of the
things that you would do when you’re using your computer’s Web browser to access your Facebook
account, such as adding a friend and adding captions to photos you upload.

The two do not share the same login credentials. Signing in to Facebook for HTC Sense does not sign you
in to the Facebook application and vice versa. If you want to use the same Facebook account for both,
you’ll have to sign in to both using the same login credentials.

status updates, and look through photo updates from your Facebook, Twitter, and other social network
