Uninstalled the app, started using FB via browser. For my low intensity usage it's still perfect. Also links to click and youtube embeds work seamlessly now.
Got no messenger installed too.
A thousand times this. The line for me was when my recent camera pics popped up in the app with a caption "do you want to post these to Facebook"? Uhh, fuck no Facebook and stop rifling your grubby mitts through my pics without asking me TYVM (Dropbox, Twitter, Google+ all have similar functionality but have an explicit settings for this).
This is also a weakness in Android permissions IMO: many apps ask for USB access to store their own data but that means they can read everything under /sdcard including photos.
Now I use the mobile site, plus Slice if needed. The only drawback is that apps which require Facebook to login now require an OAuth web dialog where I have to log in again, whereas before the Facebook app showed the confirmation with no re-auth required.
