Hi Shelly, congratulations on your new tablet and welcome to the forum. I'm moving your thread to the Zenithink ZT280 C91 & C91 Upgrade forum for you, where more people with your tablet are likely to join the discussion and try to help you. Good luck!

Facebook android app is not yet compatble with ICS 4.0 , you will soon discover a lpt of otther apps are stiil not compatible as of now. You ca solve the FB problem boolmarking it, it works just fine as the app.
Zenithink C91 is very popular now!
Draw something free now available !!!!
Google Play simply doesn't offer you the apps that are incompatible. I guess that's good, but this sometimes causes confusion... for instance, I was using twicca on my 2.3.4 phone. It's not available for my tablet under 4.0, but a bazillion plug-ins for it ARE available... making it difficult to discover that the base application isn't, in fact, on the list.
(I'm not crazy about tweetcaster, btw, but it appears to be the best available option)
On the other hand, there are things like "Let's Golf", which is available, but tells you right away upon launching that it's not compatible.
Netflix: everything about it seems to work except for the pesky problem of movies failing to run for more than a minute.
I know that's not really what you asked about (as I'm not a facebooker), but there's a couple of thoughts anyway.
Hi , the reason of the incompatibility is that our tablet does not support the GPS system, and Facebook requiere it, that's why he told you that you can't install it
follow this few steps and it will be good :
1 : go on settings - applications- all - and stop Google services Framework, and erase all data
2 : go on setting - applications - all - and stop the Play Store, and erase all data
3. Go on ES file Explorer - setting - enable "root explorer" and "mount file system"
4. extract this files xmlfiles.zip in /system/etc/permissions on your tablet
I have bought 3 of these (3rd on it's way) and I was able to download and install the Facebook app on both the ones that have arrived. The only problem I had was updating Maps which gave a message that the package wasn't properly signed and to unload the previous version.
Sadly this isn't possible as it's a preinstalled app.
Following advice from the supplier I reset to factory (no joy) then reinstalled the BIOS/OS, still no joy with maps, but now I can't install the Facebook (and other) apps.
So I imagine there has been some "post install" tweaking to allow Facebook and other apps to install and work that isn't part of the ROM file.
I can only assume yours hasn't been tweaked. I got mine from ebelking.
Didn't see your reply before I posted, I try that myself when I get home.
On another matter (since you seem to be knowledgable), do you know any way to allow me to update Maps?
As posted before I get a message saying the file isn't correctly signed and to uninstall the previous version, which I am unable to do.
