It's an application package not a webpage.

Quoted from Quora:
Question:Facebook: Why is the Facebook package name in Android called katana (com.facebook.katana)?Does this refer to the Japanese sword Katana?Answer:Charles Wu, Program Manager @twitterVotes by Alex Wu, worked at Facebook for >4 yrs.,S?awek Biel, Software Engineer at Facebook, Anonymous, Alon Amit, Former Facebook Product Manager, Anonymous, and 364 more.I was the one who named the package Katana as the first ProgramManager/Product Manager of the first official Facebook for Android app so I'll share a little history.After internal beta period and we were prepping to upload to "Android Market" (not Play at the time), it turned out that we could not call the package com.facebook.facebook for reasons that escape me now. So we needed sometime that would identify it over time.I received the change request while I was eating dinner at sushi restaurant called "Katana". Though that wasn't the first name that came to mind. The original idea was calling the package "Cortana" which was the name of the tasks application used at Facebook at the time (and has ended up being the core of Asana). Cortana comes from Halo.That name was pulled on the remote chance that we ended up publishing a front end for the tool on Android so we decided against that. There might have been some concern that it would have issues with copyright too, but that I don't remember. Since I was at the restaurant, "Katana" sounded close enough to "Cortana" we decided to use that after thinking about the meaning of katana and what it represented.Katana has the symbolic association of being something sharp and would cut through what it encountered and additionally that the app had multiple layers similar to how the katana sword is created by repeated folding an pounding creating thousands of layers.For those reasons, I and the lead developer went forward with calling the package com.facebook.katana when it was submitted.

Facebook community page - Facebook forced my page to a Community page. Others can only see one post of three from the other day. When on my community page I was able to see those posts. Today I posted...

Check to make sure that members don't have edit/delete permissions. Someone may have removed them by accident. Just navigate to your profile settings and check permissions for the community page. Set it to allow no one to delete your posts.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Trying to set up Facebook tells me you dont have permission to open the page market id =com.Facebook.katana

Uninstall and re-install the Facebook app. The katana process is a key part of the app and it is probably hung up with some sort of de-fragmentation, this happens sometimes for whatever reason. From what I have read a re-install usually does the trick!

Trojan virus's are rooted very deep and are nearly impossible to be removed. Most tech representatives say you should just swipe your hard drive and start from scratch.

Can not access my facebook page

You are not alone.

Start fresh by pasting this address into your browser address window

I do not know the reason this works but it does. I also do not know why Facebook's own links to itself discontinue to work but it is frustrating.
