Facebook App for iPad - removing account from login screen

When I open the Facebook App on my iPad, a blue screen appears with the profile picture and name of several accounts. On the bottom of the screen I have the options to click on a small cog icon, which lists each account and the login settings, click on the text "Log Into Another Account", or click on the text "Sign Up For Facebook". What I want to know is how can I remove one of the accounts from the login screen?

Facebook for iPad updated

I made another attempt at checking the cog wheel icon on the bottom of the login screen on the Facebook app and, much to my surprise, the option to "Remoce account from iPad" is now listed as an option. Problem solved.

Good to know.

I hadn't seen that option before.

Answer
The only way I've seen this happen

Is to uninstall the Facebook App and then reinstall it giving it a fresh start.

If you find another way, please share it.

Uninstall/Reinstall doesn't work

This is the first thing I tried and it doesn't work. I've uninstalled the Facebook app, shut down my iPad, restarted my iPad, reloaded Facebook for iPad and the multiple accounts are still displayed.

My bet

Is Facebook is keeping that info on the web and not your paid. Time to ask them directly how to clear it out.
