It just appeared in my notification blind saying that it was downloading Facebook (build 132866). It's not downloading from the Play Store. If I check the App Info (hold on the notification and click App Info), it's the Download Manager, not Play Store. According to the Play Store, I have the latest version of Facebook and I don't have automatic updating on it. Clicking this download doesn't open anything. I tried restarting my phone and it was the first thing to appear on my phone, even before the launcher finished loading!

It's been downloading forever and I don't know how to stop it! Any ideas what to do with it?

SOLVED! Connect to a WiFi and it'll download instantly.

Facebook (Build 132866)
I had the same issue you had. For me, it took about 24 hours for the application to actually begin to download, then it asks you to install it. I did because I wanted to see what happens, but as far as I can tell it didn't do anything. I still have the newest version of Facebook (2.2.1), nothing on my phone was modified or removed.

I'm not sure if it makes a difference but I'm with WIND Mobile, I have a friend who's with Sprint who's had the same issue as well. I'm the only one out of all my friends that this has happened to. So if anyone else has a good explanation as to why this happened please share

UK too
Not that this helps anyone, but it's happening in the UK too. I'm on H3G, just about to tweet them and see if they know anything about it (they probably wont) seeing as this is happening on both sides of the pond, on different networks, it looks like it's an HTC fail. It's been downloading on mine for about 17 hours now

Seeing the same thing for a couple of hours now on my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3. I've tried a reboot as well as a power down/power up and it keeps coming back after reboot. Maybe I'll do a battery pull and see what happens -- or turn on my WIFI to see if it completes quicker.

Oh thanks for the idea! I turned on my WiFi and it downloaded straight away. I guess this is an update directly from the Facebook app and not a phone specific thing.

Downloaded and installed, was stuck downloading also until I turned on wifi. I do not notice anything new or different. I am wonder why this is being pushed out like this instead of a market update. I did a Google search to see if Facebook or anyone else has announced this update, but didn't find anything other than posts like this one.

I'm seeing this too my my T989. I didn't know that the Facebook app could update itself outside of the Play Store. Not very happy about it.

Even after uninstalling Facebook and Facebook Pages Manager, it is still there trying to download!

Update: Killing Download Manager app removed it from my notification bar.

Update 2: Now it is back, even with all Facebook apps uninstalled!

Here is a solution someone posted and it worked for me, I have a galaxy note 2. Go to the downloads folder and you will probably see two entries of this file trying to download. Delete them both. No more hanging download.
