Apple released iOS 6.0.1 to the world today for download. Just a quick PSA for those about to update–note this update causes Facebook to crash upon opening the app for a second or two. Reinstalling the app does not fix the problem. Looks like this is a Facebook issue and not iOS issue as it’s crashing for everyone.
So if you are a Facebook addict, stay away from iOS 6.0.1 until an update is pushed out for the latter, or stick to the mobile version at m.facebook.com.
Don’t worry. It’s going to get better.
Update: Looks like the crash is happening for some, but not others.
Update 2: Looks like this crash is for all versions of iOS–so iOS doesn’t look to be the blame. Updated the above.
@iPhoneinCanada Crashing on all versions, not just 6.0.1

Update 3: Facebook is back online. You can rest calmly now.
