My Facebook keep frezzing and saying Facebook has stopped running. I have a Note 4 .


1-Go to Settings > Application manager
(and scroll to the All tab. Find your Facebook app and tap Clear cache and Force stop).
2-Restart your Note 4, and see if the issue is resolved.
3-Check in the Google+ app. (Tap the three dots at the top right and choose Settings, then tap your name under Account Settings and choose Facebook).
4-Try unchecking Keep Facebook up to date.

Some people report that they resolved the issue by disabling Google+ or uninstalling updates for it.

The options can be found in Settings > Application manager > All > Google+.

From the Samsung GT-S5300 user manual -

Your device freezes or has fatal errors

If your device freezes or hangs, you may need to close applications or reset the device to regain functionality. If your device is still responsive and an application is frozen, close the application with the task manager. If your device is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold the Power key for 8-10 seconds. If this problem persists, perform a factory data reset. In the application list, select Settings ? Privacy ? Factory data reset ? Reset phone ? Erase everything.
