Hi there, and welcome to JustAnswer

 

This is because its using the credentials from your laptop, and these are lost when your friend logs in.

 

you will either need to log into your facebook again when they have finished, or disconnect the tether and have the Droid phone connect directly to facebook and your emails without going through the laptop (if you have an internet plan on your phone contract).

 

Please let me know if you require any additional information.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
