    my facebook account on my laptop and my desktop shows the new version of facebook that a lot of people dont like. Yet my gtab shows the older version, what's up with that? I tried clearing the cache but still old version. I'm not using a facebook app, using internet program.

    When you access it from the tablet browser it is detecting that version and reverting to the format that they know works. The newest version of FB looks for Chrome, Safari, IE and Firefox, but if you have a different browser you don't always get the most recent version. Also, if you like to have the older UI, if you set your language default to English-UK you still get the old layout.

    Hope that clarifies

    Using my Xoom, I get the new facebook layout, which seems rather weird. But i only use it due to the app being rubbish
