I have been using the touch.facebook.com on my Lumia 920, and have to say it is the best facebook UI and performance than any other app or even the people hub. When I tried the touch.facebook.com on my Titan 2 last night for giggles, it was worthless. I am not sure of the changes with IE, but it works wonderful on my Lumia 920.
The only issue is: some pics are cut off and there is no way to view the pic.
I have the HTML5 app for facebook (touch.facebook.com) I have it pinned to my home screen. I just wish it had a live title instead of a copy of the webpage when I first pinned it.
What facebook app are you using?
The Microsoft Facebook,
HTML5 Facebook app within IE, (touch.facebook.com)
or another Facebook app.

A combination of the People Hub and the FB App is sufficient for me. I'd maybe like a bit more functionality on the FB App, but most of the time if I going to do larger things on FB, im on a laptop or desktop.
So those two things work for me.

People Hub + Facebook app does it for me. Makes fanpage management a thorn in my *** but it does the job otherwise.

Does nobody else use the full desktop site (facebook.com)?
The screen on my 920 is big enough. I can scroll around and zoom in to the central panel easily and quickly. There is a lot more options on the full site and everything just feels more familier, its almost like when I use my laptop.
I also have the touch site as a favourite, but I don't use it very often. Somtimes I also use the People Hub to scroll though whats new. The Microsoft App is also useful for notifications

The significant difference, IMHO, between the FB app and the facebook browser (including mobile) sites is that the browser versions all apply FB's "guess whose posts I want to see" logic whereas the apps generally show everything. This might not be evident until your friend count gets high enough but it's a substantial difference once it does.

Tbh, what I like about People Hub is the automatic notification filtering. Any and all game requests are automatically filtered.

I mainly use the People hub, but wind up using the vanilla MS Facebook app when I can't like something on the P-Hub (don't know why it lets you some times and doesn't at other times) or want to hit a facebook page of a "liked" company cause the People hub doesn't show liked organisations in your contacts list :'(

from your internet explorer go to touch.facebook.com, then hit the three dots at the bottom right and go down to pin to start screen. It isn't a live tile and it show a pic of the website that you are currently view when you pin it, unfortunately this never changes.
