Facebook will not run on Yoga Book Tablet

I have a Yoga Book (YB1-X90F) running Android 7.1.1. Facebook had been working fine until recently, it started posting messages, Facebook has stoppped or Facebook keeps stopping. the app never completely starts.  I have uninstalled and re-installed the latest version of the app. I have tried older versions of the app but get the same results. I performed a factory reset and tried installing, but it still fails, with the latest version and an older version. I am able to install Facebook Lite and run it without the problem. I don't really like this version of Facebook. After the factory reset, I didn't install any other apps to eliminate any conflicts. I am at a loss for what to try next, does anyone have any ideas?

Sorry, can't offer any help as I'm suffering from the same problem. I'm glad I saw your post though before I wasted time doing a factory reset.

Following, to see if there is any help with this.

Re: Facebook will not run on Yoga Book Tablet

Hi there! When you click on the app, was there any error message? Have you tried logging in Facebook using the browser? Did it work?

Certainly in my case, I can only access Facebook via the browser or using Facebook Lite. No error message other than the generic app has stopped working one. Restarting the app makes no difference. If you clear cache and memory it does take a little longer to crash.

Re: Facebook will not run on Yoga Book Tablet

I was able to get the Facebook app to work on my tablet. I had to find a version that supported Intel x86_64 processors. It appears that Facebook dropped Intel processor support in the newer releases. I had that to happen with some other applications but the developers responded to email request and fixed it. Facebook support has not responded. I'm good with running version 215.0.0.45.98,

Brilliant! Thank you.

Installing that version worked for me too.

Well done for figuring out what the issue was.

Re: Facebook will not run on Yoga Book Tablet

Yes, the one posted above.

Get the APK from here and use it:

https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/facebook-2/facebook/facebook-215-0-0-45-98-release/

Make sure you disable automatic updates for Facebook or it will just install the newer, non-working version.

It does keep pestering you to update though.
