  • Turn device off.
  • 'Crash' it (battery out).
  • Destroy phone.
  • Delete Facebook account.
  • Uninstall Facebook app from phone.
  • Stop the application in settings > applications.
  • Download a Task Killer app and kill the app task.

Stop using the official Facebook app. Even Facebook admits it's terrible.

I use friendcaster much faster and less prone to crashing.
