Yes The Update button does not appear, but Open, this generally means that you already have the latest version and therefore no other update is available. However, it could be the case that there is a new version for Google Play that has not yet refreshed the list of apps with updates. To do so, go to My apps and games and then tap the button to search for updates.


If it still does not appear that there are Facebook updates available, that is that you are already using the latest version. Sometimes updates take hours, days or even weeks to spread to all users, so you will have to be patient or read on to install the latest version of Facebook from its APK.
