Default Facebook Update?

Okay guys, so yesterday I started receiving a notification telling me that facebook has downloaded a new update and I should install it.

Only problem is that it's not updating inside of Google play, which I'm not sure but just kinda caught me off guard, and threw up some red flags in my head. I haven't actually accepted the update yet, but it literally shows right back up in my notifications if i clear it.

I have uploaded some screen shots as. I go threw each of the steps, which all looks normal for side loading apps. The very last picture is where I usually press cancel.

Anyone else getting this update? And is it safe, am I just being parionoid? Lol.

Thanks for any help.

I haven't gotten that one yet, but I did get an update for the People application a few days ago.

That definitely looks odd. I haven't gotten any notification yet. Apps shouldn't update that way.

Is there a Facebook beta? That's the only time I've seen an app update like that, when it downloads new beta versions inside itself. But I've never seen FB do that.

I have no clue, but at least other are puzzled by it as well. I just trying to make sure it isn't malware or something along those lines. But that notification is getting mighty annoying lol

Uninstall the app, then install the official one from the Play store. That way you can be sure the app is legit.

you are not the only one getting this, as this has also been reported on here

It looks like something facebook is stating to do, but it might take a bit for everyone to start seeing it
