4. Clear cache (for Android)

Android starts storing data since you have started using it and usually doesn't clear all the cache after using, which leads to sluggish app performance or even misbehaving. Therefore, clearing cache is very useful to regain userspace or to fix an app that doesn't work properly. You can use some apps to clear cache or you can go to Settings > Application, tap into Facebook, and then tap the "Clear cache" button, but make sure that you understand what it means to set the app to default.
