While the goodies are fun, after this recent update, I can no longer switch between different Facebook accounts for image sharing. There are three of us who use Facebook on this iPad 2 along with this app and the login to Facebook via PS Express seems to be permantly stuck on the account of the last user who signed in prior to this last update. Bummed me out ... please fix.

Hi Fran,

To switch to a different Facebook account, you can sign out from the current account from the settings(Settings -> Sharing Settings -> Facebook Logout)

After you have logged out, you could try to sign in with the desired account.

(PS: If Facebook App is installed on your device and someone has already signed in from it, then those account details will be used, so you will need to sign out from that as well)

That is the issue - the new update no longer allows users to sign-in to different Facebook accounts. When you hit "log-in", it automatically signs in now, thus eliminating any choice. Why on earth would Adobe remove this feature?

(And, no, I do not use any Facebook apps. I use the browser and go directly through the website.)

Hi Fran,

I have noticed that when secure browsing in enabled on Facebook (this can be checked on Facebook website -> Account Settings -> Security), the logout function does not work correctly due to an issue with the Facebook iOS SDK.

This has been reported on Facebook as well: http://developers.facebook.com/bugs/3...

I'll get somebody from Adobe to follow this issue and come up with a workaround in the next release.

Meanwhile, can you confirm, if secure browsing is enabled for the account which is currently logged in,

Thanks.

Hi I have similar problem to Fran, I can't logout of Facebook account or when I do and then try to login again it doesn't give me this option it automatically logs me in again under same name. Checked the security browsing option it's off. Any suggestions as I can't use it.
