Can anyone help with clearing the drop down status menu?
When I upload a photo to Facebook, the ONGOING list in the drop down menu shows 0% permenantly, even when the final result shows 100% complete below it. The only way I can clear the 0% status is to clear the app cache.
What am I missing or doing wrong?

Reinstall the app. Ive had this happen on other devices and a reinstall fixed it. Update to the latest app version too.

I updated the app and it cleared the menu but did the same when I uploaded another picture.
Then uninstalled and reinstalled and still the same problem.

Next up is an email to facebook.

Hi,

I am still not able to upload using my S3.. it is a real shame. It works some time and 90% just fails. It just stuck in the notification area, sometimes at 0%, sometimes at 40% (not sure why). and I can't tell what is the actual error. Could it be the image size? I am uploading a photo taken by the 8M S3 camera (but i think the size is much less than 8M since I zoomed in when I took the photo)

How come such an error is never fixed? how many people have had this problem for long? This has been the case every since my S2 from 1 year ago..

If it is not Android or Samsung problem, then it makes me wonder (and frustrated) that Facebook never tried to do anything about this, and I think it is widely reported

It's not just you
The facebook app for Android doesn't seem as well put together as the IOS one. It's running a boat load of services and still wants a separate app for messenger, runs slowly and fails to post pictures and videos regularly for me.

You can fix it by clearing the app data and/or doing a reboot. They both resolve the issue until the app flakes again.
