Update: Sunday morning, Facebook's Android app is still down for many users.

Is there a fix? Some Android Facebook users claim that if you delete, and then redownload the app, it will work as normal. Some other Twitter users have come up with another way to make the app work.

As of 10 a.m. EST Saturday, Facebook was still down for Android users and the company has not acknowledged the problem on its official Twitter account. The Down Detector outage maps shows most the reports coming from the U.K. and the East Coast of the U.S.

Update: As of 1:25 p.m. Saturday the Facebook app is still crashing or completely inaccessible.

"Giant software company: Let's release a major update on Friday! Everyone does this. Me: Suddenly my app doesn't work. *Crickets chirp noisily until Monday*," another Twitter user said.
