New posts feature

Facebook needs to fix the new post feature! It always says no one has new posts.
Why don’t my Facebook have the story feature

Update Fix = Fail
by Yo Sakic on 2019/05/22 05:08
So the latest update makes it nearly impossible to type. No caps lock. The “cursor” jumps around and suddenly you’re typing a new word RIGHT in the middle of another word you typed already. Fix this. God. Please.
Get it under control
by NasiaDaP😍😘 on 2019/05/22 05:06
My videos for Facebook story uploads slow & my timeline always says error no matter how many times I refresh it it stays with the same 4 people everyday. I tried deleting & reinstalling it but it doesn’t work still 🤬🤯😤😤😤
Frustrated
by religious facebooker on 2019/05/22 04:59
I was excited to update this app until I did and now I only get one post on my news feed at a time . I have to refresh to get one more then refresh to have three and do on. It doesn’t let me just scroll through my newsfeed. Very disappointed .
Friends list completely gone.
by saxy87 on 2019/05/22 04:22
Suddenly my entire friends list vanished. I have 10 friends now. They are the last 10 people I became friends with only.
Hate facebook
by Unruly Pain on 2019/05/22 04:18
Why is facebook burying settings that enable me to unfollow? Seems like much of the quick settings have recently been reformatted into more obscure locations with too many extra steps to tinker with. Another stupid update on a social platform I wish would finally die.
STOP LISTENING TO ME
by Perfectly Simple on 2019/05/22 04:00
I’m so sick of having private conversations with friends or my partner, in person, out loud, and then seeing ads for whatever we were talking about on FB. For effs sake STOP. This is disgusting. I want any possible alternative to FB.
Facebook ruined my life
by OverthrowThe2PartySystem on 2019/05/22 03:46
I downloaded Facebook 10 years ago at the young, impressionable age of 13, naively thinking “this will be a fun way to post song lyrics online and virtually poke people I have a crush on without ever having to talk to them in real life”. Well everything was going smoothly, I was successfully avoiding human interaction and faithfully tending to my fake vegetable garden when all of a sudden Russian agents in the Kremlin’s employ took advantage of Facebook’s advertisement logarithm/privacy invasion policy and bought $100,000 worth of campaign ads, undermining the (previously flawless) American “democratic” system and landing us with a racist human Cheeto for president. Since then I have spent every day crying hysterically about the state of our country. Also, the app takes up too much space on my phone. 0/10 would not recommend to a friend, especially near election season
WTH

Keeps crashing
Wish it worked
by Disappointed is already taken. on 2019/05/22 03:20
As many people use this app you would think it would be better then it is. All we see is ads after ads for sponsors and retail stores trying to get you to buy stuff. Every time it’s update stuff stops working. Market place hardly ever works and if you hide the ads they just come back something different.
Birthday

Nazi Facebook the killer of free speech
by silentmajority123 on 2019/05/22 03:15
Facebook is sharing your personal information. They need to be sued. The silence certain political views. The morons running this site must be some serious weird cafe latte enema receiving idiots. Their teams are slow to review what their stupid bots pick up. Someone needs to give them some competition. Unless that goes against NSA facially profiling everyone and documenting their lives illegally. They get one star.

Friends list keeps deleting friends
by jay .t on 2019/05/22 02:20
Please fix this bug. My friends show up one day and the next day they’re gone and the next day they come back. Many people have told me that their Facebook is doing the same thing so can you please fix this
make the follow button more visible
by миколяяяяяя on 2019/05/22 01:39
There should be an official customer service 24. It is in urgent need. And please make the follow button more visible!!!!!
I dislike Facebook it's not worth the time anymore
by Books are awesome. on 2019/05/22 01:38
I've been on Facebook since 2014 and now because they just 'now' created a rule, my post from years ago are getting me blocked. They should count the new ones I post not from months or even years ago. I'm very disappointed.
STOP
by kjroberson745 on 2019/05/22 01:24
STOP trying to make swipe pictures happen. It's NOT happening. Nobody that I know likes it and I use Facebook every day. Keep it how it is where I can see thumbnails of the first 3-5 pictures of a photo post without having to click or "swipe" them. It was cute that way and it actually worked and didn't have a spasm every time you tried to look at the pictures. Give your users the few simple things they've actually asked for and stop trying to make "improvements" that only make the app frustrating to use. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
Things are going along ok, but
by Helmet.Head on 2019/05/22 01:21
When I’m watching a video or even readings postings and comments. The app crashes?? It closes and I loose track of where the video ended up. I have to retrace my steps to posts??
Won’t finish installing the update. And now I can’t use my app at all.
by Sundial76 on 2019/05/22 00:38
The app has not finished updating all day and now I can’t use it. This blows. Normally it finishes within minutes.
Missing marketplace

Your community standards are bull crap
by Mrs.Jacki Scott on 2019/05/22 00:28
Your community standards are total bull crap. They allow stuff they shouldn’t and they block things they shouldn’t. I am a grown adult that should not be blocked from my account which I have made and you’ve made money off of. To treat adults like they are children is total bull crap. You have people trolling other people yet they don’t get marked for abusing your standards. But yet if their victim tells them to F off and posts proof of they’re harassment for others to avoid these people. The victim is then marked for abusing community standards. Your community standards are total bull crap and need to be recalibrated. How is it that you guys allow porn pics even when they are abusing your standards. You allow people to post things that kids shouldn’t see like porn, murders and people getting beat up. But you won’t let allow two adults to hash it out through words??? Your standards need to change to where adults are not being blocked from their pages for mundane crap. I am going to gather a boycott against Facebook for treating adults like children after you have made so much money from us all by selling our info to other companies. You have no right to treat adults like children by blocking them from their pages and allowing trolls to harass people. Change your algorithm for your standards!!
Latest update blows

by Robin Marie Tyler-Williams on 2019/05/21 23:16
I’m always looking for Wi-Fi and getting very tied of it...I hope to leave FB soon I’m just sick of having to do this every other day!! Ugh just spent 2 hours and still not boot it up... I have better things to do with MY LIFE besides constantly seeking Wi-Fi Thanks!!
“Updates”
by wizard202 on 2019/05/21 22:35
If I wanted to see the post react options as android emojis then I would’ve bought an android. Quit “updating” an app that doesn’t necessarily need an update. 😤
Dog sh*t
by motomx58 on 2019/05/21 22:18

Old Facebook settings
by Myraj4life on 2019/05/21 21:10
So, I have been updating this app for awhile and I still have the same old Facebook layout. Other People I know have a completely different layout then me , like the pictures on the app page, but I don’t. I even deleted the app and reinstalled it again and nothing.

Still clumsy UI to stop videos
by VadMK on 2019/05/21 20:51
This has been an issue for some time now. Starting a video in the News Feed is easy, stopping it ain’t, because you can only stop it by targeting a minuscule x sign in the bottom left corner. Clicking anywhere else in the windows doesn’t work unlike stopping a video on YouTube, for example. I give you three stars for that minus one star for ignoring this UI issue. This is not the first time I raise
I hate ads
by Roxxy-Kee on 2019/05/21 20:37

Awful
by Leann Ashley on 2019/05/21 19:39
The most recent update has royally screwed up my notifications. I haven’t gotten a single one from any of the group posts I was active on, or any of my own posts. In order to see if someone responded, I have to go find the post. Please fix this!!!!
Ugghhhh😡😡😡😡

Ads every 3-4 posts! Enough is enough!
by MyName5555 on 2019/05/21 19:29

New update bugs
by Garfield_Cat on 2019/05/21 19:26

Incompetence
by BigThelonious on 2019/05/21 18:23
You half-wits ruined the background colors. Doesn’t surprise me any, smarts has never been a trait anyone who works on Facebook has EVER had anyway. Quite the opposite in fact.
App won’t open
by Hellur123 on 2019/05/21 18:18
Every time I click the app to open it, it just closes. It won’t open at all so I have to access Facebook from a browser.
No pics unless you give your whole camera access to Facebook
by Triballs on 2019/05/21 18:00
The new update is horrendous. Facebook wants access to your whole camera. Before you could just upload photos from you saved photos
Stop Breaking Things

Continues to fix things that aren’t broken and let broken things stay broken
by TreyAldermen on 2019/05/21 17:26
With this update when you go into portrait mode it cuts off half the screen for a chat window. I’m not sure ANYBODY asked for that. How about you fix things like comments not loading when following a notification and things like that instead of adding in features people don’t want. At the very least give me the option to go full screen or have the chat window.
Comment section broken
by KassidyNicole on 2019/05/21 17:05
I can’t ever read the comments! It won’t let me click “load more” or even like, or 30 seconds after I try it will finally work and scroll me all the way back up. Anybody else having this problem?!
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it
by suck_it_easy on 2019/05/21 17:03
All my stuff freezes up and it made my phone bug out
If it’s not broken don’t try to fix it!
by Ginnypear on 2019/05/21 16:54
You guys keep doing updates, that are redundant But NOW, these updates have wayyyy to many cliches Takes to long to load anything on to your NEW AND IMPROVED” I was trying to talk / text a family member.... then the update kicked in and now we can’t even see each other’s reply’s This is crazy I really wish you all would just STOP and leave it alone!!! So you get 2 stars, if I could have given you a 1/2 you’d have gotten 1 & 1/2 that’s how bad Facebook has become
PLEASE ADD DARK MODE LIKE MESSENGER
by Savage T.R. on 2019/05/21 16:53
You guys added a Dark / Night mode to messenger. Can you please do that for the Facebook app? Also, WHY does the app need to take up so much space on my phone ? These are iPhones. They have limited space capabilities. Why does the Facebook app use so much data compared to using the web version on google chrome? ITS THE SAME THING!

Locked out
by bjedi76 on 2019/05/21 16:33
I have been locked out of my Facebook and messenger. There seems to be no help for me. No customer service. I just keep getting routed in a loop. It asks for a four digit code that I’ve never done, then it asked to verify my identification. I have requested the passcode to my phone but it never arrives. I managed to get it to send me an email code, but as soon as I enter the code it sent to me, it tells me it needs to verify my identification again and I’m back where I started. Does Facebook just not want me to have a page anymore..?
Notification and dictation

Fix Birthday posts
by Stone804 on 2019/05/21 14:57
Can you please bring back regular birthday posting? I don’t need to be so obnoxious about posting a big banner post on my friends page, so now I have to wait a day to post “recent birthdays” until I get the regular posting option back, or post ahead of time when you get the option for “tomorrow” birthdays. I have a lot of friends so it’s too much extra work to go to their individual pages every day to circumvent this ridiculous obnoxious “personalized card” option. I just want to acknowledge their birthdays without all the extra fluff

by Stevenrck on 2019/05/21 13:34
It isolates you from real connections between family and friends it’s been proven to spy on you oh and every time they make a new update it works so much less than before it updated so if you need a new addiction to take the place of something more important then this is a great app for you
stupidest blocking rules
by kimpurrlee on 2019/05/21 13:18

Cant mute push notifications
by V Justin V on 2019/05/21 13:16
I accidentally turned on Push Notifications. I cannot disable them through the app, only mute them for up to 8 hours. You could put the option to permanently mute them, but you didn’t. Makes absolutely no sense, except to lure people in to get stupid notifications from dying Facebook. I knew eventually I’d be done on here but I didn’t think so soon. 0/10 un-useable app.

🤬What the Hell🤬
by IhatePeople13 on 2019/05/21 11:42
Either people are snitching on me, or Facebook is spying on me. I thank a one-star reviewer for explaining what happened to them, because I’m convinced I’m being tracked. That’s a complete invasion of my privacy. I should be able to post my blunt opinions to only my very few fb friends without getting banned for 3 days. I’m permanently deleting my accounts after figuring out how to keep in contact with my loved ones. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾
Posting/Page Rolls issue on business page
by Aimers55 on 2019/05/21 10:50
May 21st - cannot post as the business again. Worked for like 3 days and then went back to same situation below. WTH? This is clearly an app issue because I none of these issues apply when on my laptop or another app called FaceBook Pages. As of May 9th, I can’t post on my business page as the business. It will only let me post with my personal FB account. I have Admin rights and can see all those tools, can share to the page as the business, can also like/comment as either the business or myself. Can post as business from laptop. I added an Admin this morning and that person doesn’t have this issue. Have removed and reloaded app more than once. Removed myself as admin and added back as well
None
by Max2325 on 2019/05/21 09:09

Multiple photos post
by hi mkm on 2019/05/21 06:09
If someone is posting a post with multiple photos in it Its hard to know that !!! The first photo is taking all the screen and i need to swipe left to see the other photos !! But how can i know if there is other photos ??!! The sign which shows (for example 1/12) goes very quickly that i don't see it alot U should give a clear sign that there is more than 1 photo in the post
Just keeps going downhill
by Gerineli on 2019/05/21 06:06
This app has many amazing features that I love, however the most recent updates have made it impossible to utilize them. Every time I attempt to use these features the app shuts down on me. It is so frustrating! There’s too many bugs that need to be worked out for an app that’s been around for a decade.
Facebook update promble
by Nicolebrezzyyyyyy on 2019/05/21 05:53
Please stop updating automatically. it’s really annoying like somedays it will automatically have the download. symbol under it and i would have to be near wifi to update it which is so dumb before. we could download Facebook with no problem without wifi now in order. to use it again we have to update it again on wifi I’m not understanding. can y’all please change it to be more easy instead of downloading it back on wifi and let us download it without wifi freely.

If I use marketplace (cars) much more than 10 minutes it's doesn’t load and I must reload the app. After reload I can use marketplace only 10 minutes.

You’re just going to keep screwing up your app huh?
I’d give it less if I could

Everything you do now has a stupid ad. Ruins most of the content on this site. Absolute bulls&$t
You are the product

If you don’t pay for a service, then you are paying with your privacy. You are the product. I use Facebook as little as I can get away with.
Get it together fb!
by Nickname80391 on 2019/01/14 20:40
This app gets worse with every update! Every time I get a notification, I click on the notification to open it and.... nothing. Just the wheel of death! On top of the many other ongoing issues. I would like to see my friends posts, like alllll of them. If I didn’t want to see them I would unfollow or just unfriend them completely. Same with business posts I follow them because I want to see their posts. I do not want to see the same old ads over & over. I would love it if the sort by “most recent” feature actually worked! I want to see the most recent posts first and then go back chronologically from there. NOT: 1 hr ago, 5 minutes ago, just now, 3 days ago, 2 hrs ago, last week, etc that we are getting now! I don’t need to see something over and over again every time someone new comments on it, if I have not commented or followed the post obviously I have moved on. Also I would like to choose what I get notified about. I know we can choose some things but not everything, ie. I do not want to be notified every time someone goes “live” or adds to their story! I love the idea of fb but you have users telling you all the improvements we want and we just get more things we didn’t ask for and half the time they don’t even work correctly.
Glitch Fixes Needed
by jlccourt on 2017/10/14 20:41
Developers need to fix two things: the first is releasing all new status background options to ALL users. I see other users get new background options on a regular basis, and yet, I have had the same 14 options for a long time now. The second thing developers need to fix is the perpetual number 1 on the badge app icon and within the app itself, even if there are no unread notifications. The app’s description in the App Store is that “To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly” and that “Every update to our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.” We’ll, “new features” as of late haven’t been made available to me, and the only “reliability” I’ve encountered lately is the permanent number 1 on my notifications. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on both my phone and tablet to no avail. The problems seem to be account-related as the issues affect my account when I use my laptop, where I don’t use an app. I’ve reported both the lack of status background options for my account as well as the notifications glitch. I’m not all that confident that developers will fix the problems. 🙁
Sad
by teacuptoni on 2018/12/05 05:37
Honestly Facebook has gone down the tubes within the past year or two. The fact that I have so many friends from high school and college and grade school, work ect, but only see about 8 of the same people is awful. The next thing is the fact it’s not only required to have the fb messenger app downloaded but updated as well. It won’t even allow safari to use it in the browser is so obnoxious. Then the fact that group will have so many members posting but yet the most recent of the ones are not immediately available. Even when the notification is clicked it shows posts from hours if not days ago. Appalling. It’s just so unorganized. So really the only way to view what actually notified you is to turn into the FBI agent you used to be when fb was still fresh top dog when MySpace became obsolete just to find the comment your friend replied to on a video in a group you guys are in. And of course last but not least of the downfalls is a video 45 seconds long gets interrupted mid sentence by a totally irrelevant ad or by something that was mentioned in a real life conversation which I just think is totally creepy. Sorry for all the rambling and riñón sentences but I’m just livid that apps force updates and crap when they’re crap and and making money from ads but then turn into their crappiest versions of themselves.
Glitches
by Rickie archer on 2018/01/14 17:08
With a site so big glitches are expected, but I’m tired of going to most recent to see what my friends actually post just to see the same 3 friends’ posts. Typically I see 4 “new” posts (by New I mean ones I have yet to see not recent) then it shows me the highlights of my news feed or what people posted 3 weeks ago that I have yet to see. I have 60 or so friends, 10 don’t really use it, but I find myself only seeing posts from people I regularly talk to in messenger and that’s it. If I don’t talk to them in messenger Facebook doesn’t let me see their posts. I’ve even ensured I’m following them. The next thing is the ads. It’s great Facebook is free and directs people to products they might enjoy, but when I say something is irrelevant why is it continuously shown? “Want some weight loss pills?” Nope I’m ok with being obese thanks. “How about diapers for a baby even though you don’t have one?” Nope. “Oh we noticed you enjoyed that video about makeup maybe you have acne.” Even if I did I wouldn’t care. Some of the ads are depressing, my husband and I can’t have children yet I’m constantly berated by ads about babies, even after I say hide ad, irrelevant, don’t show this again, or hide ads like this. It’s like showing an old person an ad for a funeral home. Can we please at least listen when people say “DON’T SHOW THIS!”
Facebook Ruined by Facebook
by Byronic_Hero on 2019/03/06 14:03
I don’t use Facebook anymore. My declining use can be traced directly back to the day they introduced their ridiculous algorithmic feed and made the chronological feed increasingly difficult to access. My feed became increasingly dominated by a handful of accounts that Facebook thought I wanted to see above all else, for some reason. I have no idea why. I guess that’s what happens when you like a post. My fault I guess? I don’t know how their algorithm weights content and posts, but it does not in anyway align with what I care about or how I would weight things I want to see. All the ridiculous nonsense Clickbait posts that people unthinkingly share end up polluting my feed, drowning out thoughtful posts that take a little bit of time to digest and are thus less “popular.” It’s no wonder Russian trolls decided to use Facebook as a way to spread misinformation like wildfire. They know the algorithms are primed for precisely that kind of popular nonsense. What a shame. Facebook was so great. It helped me feel in touch with so many people after I moved cities. But the algorithm eventually kept them out of my feed. And probably me out of theirs. And I think none of them even post on Facebook anymore unless they want to share baby photos with grandparents. And thus, everyone I know essentially stopped using Facebook.
What the heck???
by QnA_Facts on 2019/01/07 03:28
... 🕕 ... 🕘 ... 😒 For a considerable length of time I've been reporting issue after issue and nothing has been done to respond or resolve any of the reported issues. What I do get is returned hurtful rhetoric that they know what the issue is, but refuse to acknowledge or fix the actual problem. What makes it worse is they continue to censor my voice and ability to utilize my device as I see fit denying my online and real life civil rights. This MUST be addressed and fixed ASAP, as I have done nothing wrong to violate the Terms & Services yet the App and Platforms are consistently violating my rights and utilizing my personal information for their own uses and benefits; all without proper attribution or credit to me. This is beyond acceptable and is severely hampering productivity and my right to peaceful enjoyment and use of services I have paid and continue to pay for. FIX THIS ALL IMMEDIATELY!!! I guess the Facebook organization and or developers have not heard of or don't care about ECPA (Electronic Communications Privacy Act) or the numerous other rules and laws that continue to violated against me. Never once have they indicated to me that I broke any rules, therefore it's unjust that my access and use be denied, subsequently provided erroneous, confusing, and misleading information about the information reported on a multitude of occasions.
Developers left me Disappointed
by audreys_mom on 2018/03/18 12:59
With every new update that comes out I hold my breath, just hoping this will be “the one” that will fix the hodgepodge of issues with Facebook. The one that bugs me most is Marketplace. I’ve emailed support multiple times with no response (except the auto-generated “thanks for your feedback” email, of course). Then finally, 2 weeks after what was my 3rd request in 3 months time, they responded by saying they received my report and that they appreciate my patience and while they can’t update everyone who submits a report, they’re using the report to make FB better - TICKET CLOSED... Really? Not only this but recently I also lost the option to view posts by “most recent”. FB Customer Service/Support and developers just don’t care what users want. They don’t respond to problem reporting in a timely fashion and it’s now been over a year that people have been complaining about not having access to Marketplace, not just me. Although mine hasn’t been gone that long, it’s ridiculous that this issue can’t be resolved! Especially when the ability to access it just disappears one day yet buyers can still see it and send you message about it but, as the seller, you can’t make changes to it and you can’t even view it! I’ve lost sales because of this. Disappointing Facebook!!
Invasion of privacy
by Jack mehoff! on 2018/02/02 07:25
Facebook has blocked my account until I send them proof of my identity. They’re asking to see either my drivers license or credit card with my name on it. Yea ok facebook👌🏻. Why would I share that information with you when I can just create another account with the same name without sharing my personal info? It doesn’t matter what Facebook does a user can always create another account thru a different cell phone. Facebook should just call it quits. they’ve shown they can’t control and often endorse the fake news their site puts out. Their employees are clearly out of touch with their peers and most of the country. It’s blatantly obvious they are over privileged and pretentious people that will never know a “hard days work” and think accountability is something their accountants do. As proof they won’t stop, they’ll continue to run it into the ground by listening to half-wit suggestions from people who are desperately trying to stand out from their coworkers rather than just accepting that the best wheel design is round. Facebook -constantly lowering the bar. Intelligent people know how easy it is to manipulate their lesser counterparts. Facebook doesnt understand this because they are not intelligent but rather inexperienced , self entitled, over confident and pretentious people. INTELLIGENCE CAN NOT BE LEARNED.
Take away the new Snapchat feature! It’s so dangerous!
by Mama's Not Impressed on 2018/08/23 03:19
I’m so frustrated! As a parent, Snapchat is on our list of apps we don’t allow. It was designed by a couple of college students who wanted to facilitate sexting. Fine for adults who are into that, but the problem comes when these platforms are significantly marketed to teenagers! We know cyberbullying and sexting cause psychological damage to teens... except now parents won’t be able to intervene because messages and pictures are able to automatically disappear in a few seconds!! As someone who suffered “predatorial grooming” at the age of four (being coached to trust a 15 year old who then molested me) you just don’t trust teenagers to make responsible choices with that much privacy. I realize people can manually delete messages, but this also takes away that personal choice to retain an abusive message for the purpose of reporting it. You’d have to think fast and screenshot it. Let’s not strip away one more layer of INTENTIONAL accountability. It’s not healthy. If I have to make the decision to delete something so I’m not going to get caught with it, there is a psychological process happening that is important. Knowing it will delete itself....well now it doesn’t matter anymore, does it? Let the mature adults sign up for these features on platforms marketed to adults.
Thanks fb 👎 FOR NOTHING!!!
by ckm556 on 2018/02/26 02:27
Been on for about a year. Started 2 guitar groups and one day about a week ago you decided that I didn’t need an acct anymore and deactivated my acct literally as I’m typing a post. I know what you’re going to tell me... you are going to tell me it’s because I didn’t use my given first name. Well if it was such a problem then you shouldn’t have gave it the ok after you blocked me when I opened it the first tome and I sent a pic of my ID and then you ok’d it. My fb name met the fb policy requirements when I opened my acct!!! Instead you waited until I spent time building my guitar repair business and had hundreds of contacts and spent hours on end building my groups. Now the groups are open with no admin or moderators to deal with anything. I opened another acct IN MY GIVEN NAME!!! and you disabled that in 15 minutes. I opened another acct using a different email address with my given name and you closed it down in about 30 minutes. I sent an appeal about my original acct and haven’t heard a thing. It’s impossible to contact anyone to actually help you get something done. I don’t post anything that is offensive, I rarely talk about anything other than guitar related topics and still I’m banned for no reasonable explanation. Your community help forum is a joke. Thanks a lot fb!!! FOR NOTHING!!!
Updates Ongoing Issues
by HollyL45 on 2018/10/09 19:53
I’m an IT professional, why aren’t your developers testing new development to ensure they haven’t broken previously working basic functionality before releasing a new update? You are ruining the FB experience for your users. Every time you release an update lately something that has always worked no longer works. If I wasn’t dependent on FB to keep up with my friends and family and my professional photography groups I would have deleted it long ago. Most of these marketed “new and improved updates” are anything but and basically useless to the majority of users. Also they are huge updates making it so FB is taking up most of the available space on my phone and I have an IPhoneX 256 GB, not an old phone. I shouldn’t have to delete photos of my family to make room for FB. Notifications still no longer work. This has been going on and repeatedly reported for months. If you want to update something fix what you broke your users would be much happier. Now when I type a comment and make a mistake it won’t let me go back and correct it. It starts deleting everything I previously typed instead of letting me insert additional text or deleted something I typed incorrectly. I have to erase everything and start all over. Very frustrating.
👎Facebook=ПРАВДА (PRAVDA)👎
by planeKrazy on 2018/03/30 05:44
Facebook has tolerance for everything that’s on the ‘left’ or ‘ultra-left’ spectrum of our political divide.. If you’re a centrist or lean somewhat to the ‘right’ you’re out of luck and your views WILL be suppressed through “smart measures”.. A good friend posted a 9/11 memo picture with caption to always remember. Within minutes his account was banned and he had to start a new one with the help of the trusted friends feature. I and several other of his trusted friends wrote to Facebook asking why his account had been shot down? (We had snap shots of the last message he posted). No response from Facebook. Frankly the seemingly ‘random’ erasing of peoples Facebook accounts is very worrisome. I say random but in reality their preferred “FB erasing victim” seems to be a conservative user, some of them have had their accounts for more than a decade. My friend was just such a case. No way to appeal, Facebook simply won’t respond to emails and messages. One day you have an account and the next day you don’t. Absolutely no way to appeal or even get an explanation as to why? Shocking.. Never thought an American company would be so vehemently anti-American. I recently sold all my shares of Facebook, I think this attitude will hurt their long term value.. ___ To “GIM8789” reviewer - I totally agree with you!
Icon/app update
by llogg28 on 2019/05/11 18:40
No. First, this new app icon is AWFUL. The design is absolutely terrible. It’s in a weird balance, uses the space in an uncomfortable way, and I HATE that one side of the crossbar in the “f” is slanted while everything else is vertical. It’s just bad. It looks flat lazy. Stop trying to fix things. It’s not innovative to fix your icon when literally nothing was wrong with the other one. Especially when this was a serious downgrade. Second, I am tired of your freaking newsfeed algorithm. When I open the app, I want to see things from that day...I don’t want to see posts from 5 days ago mixed with posts from 5 minutes ago. It’s awful and messy and misleading. You’ve mostly left Instagram alone (thank god) but seriously...everything I see is old news. Contests, important posts....they all end up being seen too late. I shouldn’t have to go “star” or “see first” every single company or group or friend that I want to see in my feed. Just show me a normal, consecutive line of posts. I promise we’ll all catch what we want and need. I really don’t think any of your users are explicitly asking for this and it’s not innovative, it’s cumbersome. Please take time to review the feedback people are giving. This is just not good.
What is going on with the news feed???
by NicoleRose215 on 2018/09/12 05:50
Up until about a month ago, I never had a problem with the news feed. I’d open my app and I’d go to my Most Recent news feed and I’d see the most recent posts in order, starting with the newest post and then the one before that and so on. It was in chronological order. It made sense and it’s exactly what I wanted to view. Now when I go to my Most Recent news feed, I see something that was posted 2 mins ago, and then the next one is something from 6 hours ago, and then the next one is from 47 mins ago, and then the next one is from last night at 6:24pm, and then the next one is from Monday at 10:07am, and then the next one is from 3 hours ago and like what in God’s name is friggin happening here??????? I’d be better off just calling my friends and asking them to tell me what they’ve posted on Facebook lately because by the time I see it in my news feed, it could be week-old news! You know, sometimes certain pages post important things or time-sensitive information and if the most recent posts aren’t coming up correctly, that’s a huge problem. What’s the point of using this app if it doesn’t work correctly?? Get it together, Facebook!!

App keeps backing me out
by jlFinchmockingbird94 on 2018/07/13 22:48
Ever since the most recent update, there have been multiple occasions where the app will just back me out, taking me straight to my home screen without reason or warning. This usually happens within seconds of entering the app, and never happens just once at a time. Rather, it will happen every single time I try to re-enter the app, often continuing to do so repeatedly, until it finally decides to work normally again. It has proven to be impossible to predict when this problem will occur, and how long it will continue before returning to its proper functioning. At first I thought it was my WiFi and/or network connection, but I now know it can’t be attributed to either one, given that it has now happened on several WiFi networks AS WELL AS while using data. I also have the newest version of iOS, so it can’t be explained by not having updated software, and I have the app set to where I always stay signed in, so I know it has nothing to do with my login, either. I’m sure I can’t be the only one who has been experiencing this, even if I happen to be the only one writing a review about it. Please work on figuring out the cause of this issue and finding a solution, because it has made using the app a complete hassle and annoyance.
Account recovery
by Snuggles2012 on 2018/07/12 01:08
Recently got a new phone and tried to recover my account by phone number. Failed miserably. My account has automatically logged in on my phone for so long I couldn’t remember my log in. When trying to recover my account I was linked to and recovers an account that was not mine. Actually the account was of someone from another country that hadn’t been active since 2012. I no longer have access to old emails or phone numbers. I tried to contact the support team telling them I could provide pictures or personal info to prove that I was the owner of my account that I was trying to log into and have yet to have a response after 3+ days. I tried making a brand new profile on my pc ( with a new email that I have never used for fb before) and got as far as setting a profile picture and adding friends when I was printed with a security message . So now am also locked out of a brand new profile. I wished MySpace was still around because I would honestly just stop using fb . Fb is the main access I have to out of state family as well as uploaded pictures and memories that were not backed up anywhere else. I just want my account back. Why can’t fb have security questionnaire for recovery? Why can’t someone contact me to help me ?

Wish I could delete
by clcx43 on 2018/08/17 00:13
The only reason I still have facebook is because my school posts important updates at times. I get notifications constantly from facebook telling me so and so posted a picture or so and so commented on a post...things like that. These are usually people I don’t even interact with and I do not want these notifications. The only way to stop getting them is to completely unfollow the person, which then takes their posts out of my news feed as well, which I do not want to happen. And even when I unfollow people my phone continues to give me notifications of new people posting things that I don’t care about. The only reason I don’t turn off Facebook notifications all together is, like I said, so I can get important updates from my school’s groups. I’ve turned off every notification setting within the Facebook app that I can and continue to get these notifications on my phone. It is extremely annoying. I will also get badge app notifications saying I have 4 new notifications when I don’t actually have any. Extremely annoying and makes me think I have an important notification to check when I rarely actually do. Will delete my account as soon as I’m done with school if this isn’t fixed.
So seeing as others have the same issues
by SVas85 on 2018/10/19 15:41
I’m all for being able to connect with family and friends. Not everyone has the luxury of international calling, unlimited data/talk/text, etc. that being said, I’ve gotten to a point where I keep my account Deactivated, and my messenger active, I’m not a fan of the fact FB is breeding grounds for a Petri dish variety of BAD MEDIA - like the super negative stuff - that are put there intentionally for others to repost because it triggers them, or tempts them. I personally decided not to even have cable in my home, for the sheer fact that as a kid in the 90’s there was good news, as well as not so great news. Now, it’s all negative and bad. It gets old. Furthermore, I had the WORST issue trying to get away from a stalker that made a total of 8 false profiles to repetitively contact me, even after I blocked him every time. I DID file a report, and nothing happened. So I was forced to delete my account and make a new one with a false name. Whereas it’s convenient to use for communication, I’m not FBs biggest fan, due to the fact it’s been made into (as I said) a breeding ground for negativity. Just saying...
Ugh.
by Mdralfw10 on 2017/12/15 04:49
I had a previous review from years ago, but I figured I'd update it. This app still doesn't work right. I understand that there's bound to be an issue or two with any app, but the fact that it still crashes 10+ times a day, reloads while I'm reading something even if I've clicked on the status, doesn't load videos very well, and is glitchy. Facebook all together is starting to be worthless. I tried to upload a video of my 8 month old dancing to music on a cd of mine, and it wouldn't let me because there was music playing. That's fine, but then it blocked me from uploading videos all together even though it gave the option to discard or post the video. I chose to discard the post. That's not an app issue, but it's a Facebook issue. I see so many people get their posts taken down when there's nothing wrong with it, but by all means, keep letting the photos/videos of dead babies show up. I guess that's ok, but when you have live babies dancing, it's not. It also seems a little racist that if I put a video up of a Caucasian person singing/rapping it doesn't tell me I can't upload it, but when I try to upload a video of an African American singing/rapping it won't let me 💁🏼. Facebook seems to have their priorities backwards.
Updates are getting ridiculous.
by makdaddy5000 on 2019/05/09 04:00
Sometimes trying to stay up to date is not beneficial. It’s getting seriously hard to keep track of where things are on the app. As soon as you get used to things they change again. What about older folks who use the app? They usually can’t keep up as well and will lose interest. No wonder Facebook is on the decline. First off, searching has gotten harder. I used to be able to look someone up and the person I was thinking of would almost always pop up due to mutual friends. Search results used to be ordered that way. Now it’s almost completely random and very unorganized. When I try to search for a post in particular I am just given the option to look up what year it was posted, it would be nicer to select the month. Also, I’m sick of ads in the middle of videos. You may think it’s a good idea and I get it it’s how businesses make money but usually I cut off the video and find it elsewhere because it’s just annoying. Also leads me to lose interest in Facebook. It used to be really good but soon something will probably replace it.

I am really getting tired of all the bugs in the Facebook app. I take every update available and my phone apps and operating system are always the latest available. But yet Facebook still gives me nothing but grief. My notifications very often won’t refresh and just freeze or it just keeps quitting and closing the app every 10 seconds, if I can get it to stay open for that long. No matter how many times Log out and log back in or delete the app and reinstall it, it doesn’t stop. No one at Apple can figure it out not can FB support. After a while it stopped for a few weeks and I thought I was home free! But NOPE! Now my entire Newsfeed and Notifications are quitting and won’t stay open or refresh! If I didn’t have so many school and work friends on FB I would get rid of it completely!!!! When the hell are you people going to fix all the bugs and let your users have a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying experience??? MySpace has less problems! You’ve made enough money off this app to fix it, Zuckerberg!!! Hoping a new and better social media app comes out soon! I’m disappointed and disgusted!
Racial Discrimination Against The Black Community On Facebook
by Rubies-Sapphire on 2018/11/28 04:19
Black people are finding that their attempts to create "safe spaces" on Facebook for conversation among themselves are being derailed by the platform itself. Non-black people are reporting what are meant to be positive efforts as hate speech, despite them often not violating Facebook’s terms of service. Their content is removed without notice. Accounts are suspended indefinitely. When these rulings are upheld with little recourse, it upends the communities of color Facebook claims to be supporting. It decreases the likelihood that people will continue to engage at the same level on our platform. Even high-profile figures who are plagued with these issues sometimes have to wait until it’s a major press story for it to be addressed. There is a prevailing theory among many black users that their content is more likely to be taken down on the platform than any other group. Even though the theories are mostly anecdotal, Facebook does little to dissuade people from this idea. Black people continue to use the platform because for many it is still their best way to connect directly with the causes they care about. Our communities should be able to trust that we have their best interests at heart.
Locked Out of Account
by MKaip on 2017/11/19 14:07
If I could give 0 Stars, I would.. Facebook has locked me out of my account for days, saying they need to review a photo of me. There is no one to contact or email to fix it. I have had my account since about 2005 so it doesn’t make sense.. The Help Page is of no help because it consists of regular people who do not have access to unlock accounts. Facebook needs to have a direct contact via Chat or email to assist their customers. When I was able to use the app, it had a lot of bugs and annoying features. It would randomly refresh on its own in the middle of me reading comments, have no rhyme or reason for organizing posts on the News Feed, and constantly suggest potential friends. Just because one friend of mine is friends with someone, doesn’t mean that I want to be. My biggest pet peeve with Facebook is how invasive it is with announcing to all of your friends any time you like a page or comment on a public post. I feel like I can’t comment on a news article without every one of my friends seeing it on their News Feed so I stopped commenting on things a long time ago. This app is terrible, and I can’t even go experience the awfulness that it is because my account is locked..
New update causing newsfeed to freeze
by Pikaboo09 on 2019/02/17 14:13
Didn’t have this problem until yesterday when the new update kicked in. Everything else works fine, notifications, clicking through group posts and whatnot. But as soon as I go to news feed before or after doing other things on the app it just freezes. I’ve reset the app, I’ve reset my phone, I’ve cleared all of Facebook’s caches, and I’m going to try uninstalling and reinstalling next. On another note, I was reminded after seeing someone else’s review about the group notifications as well. It’s rather annoying that Group notifications for new posts and what not see to be randomized. Sometimes I won’t get the notification for a new post, but suddenly I get one of a post that was posted hours or even days ago. The most annoying part about is when you go to the group and try to look at recent member posts, they’re randomized too, there doesn’t seem to be a way to set it to most recently posted, I don’t know what it’s set to but it’s not even most liked or most commented, it’s absolutely random and that boggles my mind.
The Facebook App imposes its own browser
by justsomeguy on 2018/04/27 14:08
According to the Moderator of a respected Geek discussion site, if you’re using the Facebook App to browse Facebook and you hit a link on the App, this opens up a different browser than your smart phone’s Chrome or Safari browser. Facebook’s App has its own browser, or, more accurately, its own web view (basically a browser control that uses the native web browser’s renderer but has its own session management, including its own cookies. The App Store description does not make this clear; nor does it explain why the FB App is designed this way; hence users have no info to help them decide whether to use or not use the App. I’m not saying the FB App is bad; it clearly does provide a richer user experience than simply logging into FB’s website via Safari. But it raises doubts, including what other manipulations or re-directions may be occurring without your knowledge when you skip the App and log in with your preferred, native browser.
Irritating App
by Diane Harris on 2017/10/10 19:38
The app has been driving me crazy for months now. If I stay on the Facebook page, it only blacks out once or twice per evening. If I want to read something (my cousin's newspaper article, for instance) posted by my friends, the app blacks out every time and if I want to continue on Facebook, I have to open the app all over again and hope I can find my place. I'm almost ready to delete the darn thing! Wondering if it's worth the frustration! I've written my problems to the staff through Facebook three times and have received no recommendations. Can the app be fixed? Well, it's about 2 ,months later and nothing has improved. The app still freezes and blacks out. If I try to move from a post to attached info it freezes. Moving down the page to more posts makes it freeze or it blacks out completely. Then I get to start all over opening the app yet again. This is really getting to be more trouble than it's worth. It would be nice if the it people would at least respond in some way. A lot of us are feeling ignored. Not good business practice!
Someone LIED to you
by So Done! on 2018/10/24 16:03
Whomever told you this latest update was a great idea, SHOULD BE FIRED. 1)When notifications come in that I’ve been tagged or someone has replied to a comment I made, it no longer takes you to the post, just to the comment. So if I commented last week and I get a reply today I have absolutely no idea what the original post was about. 2) A notification disappears after I look at it. So if I have to refer back to it for any reason, I have to somehow find the page of the original poster and then hunt for the post. STUPID IDEA 3) When going to some notifications, when you click on it it takes you to a blank post. I see the persons name, the time they posted and maybe if someone reacted to it, but absolutely no post at all. There’s even comments on it but I see no post at all. Yes I have access to their page, I haven’t been blocked and they call me to say “did you see my last post” and all I see is nothing. 3) Auto refresh is annoying. Someone posts an article and I take 2-3 minutes reading it and when I go to comment on it, you’ve refreshed my feed. Thanks for nothing. I’m sick of y’all. If I didn’t need this app to keep in contact with family around the globe, I’d delete it.
It’s free
by MikeBlueRealEstate on 2019/05/10 09:51
I had to write this review...not because I love this app, but because I feel the other reviewers are just bitter. So let me make a few things clear, Facebook isn’t a born right. You have a choice to come here and download it. You also have a choice when you enter your personal information, upload family photos, give your play by play of your daily tasks. Yet so many complain about “security” and “you need to do this”. Folks it’s free, and unless your an advertiser all you have invested in FB is time and finger swipes. The threats you are going to delete it will never happen. The demands to the free app to add this and do that are pretty hilarious as well. It’s like a homeless person wanting food, getting it and then asking “ well maybe next time you can bring me something better” for free of course. To sum it up, if you don’t like it delete it, otherwise go back to posting about your kids lunch, what your terrified of, and why things are so bad for you.
If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it
by Matti moo on 2018/12/03 20:37
Nobody wants a game page or a group page. It’s amazing how many different ways you want to send me push notifications, that I literally only click on so that it will go away. I went in to change my notification settings and it turns out you will not let me turn off all group notifications at once and I have to go through a list and manually select out of 100 groups which ones I want, the slider for all is greyed out. This is totally unnecessary, and nobody asked for this. Why do I have a notification for every time someone goes live? Anytime an event is added at a venue I checked into ONE TIME that’s across the world in a different country? Facebook notifications used to notify me when someone wanted to talk to me, and I’ve done my best to continually update my setting but it’s getting crazy. Now I’ll have 7 notifications and check it and not a single one is about a friend I have that was reaching out to me. Events, game page, so and so went live, so and so checked in safe, I have memories from 10 years ago to look at, so and so posted in this group, like I do. Not. Care. And I don’t need a red push notification making it seem like I should.
No notifications about my posts!
by Sheryl1468 on 2018/11/12 03:56
For the last 2 months, the notification settings in the app are a complete mess. The app will have the red number, but one of them are about my own posts. Any reactions or comments to MY posts don’t load in the list of notifications, so I have no idea about comments or reactions unless I actually go to the post itself. All I see are notifications about my friends’ posts. Further, while the news feed works fine, the list of notifications is limited to EXACTLY 20 notifications. When I scroll to the bottom, the page just jumps and doesn’t refresh to show any more than exactly 20. Maybe once a week I will scroll and be surprised to be able to scroll past 20, but it’s not because of anything I did or didn’t do. AND once I scroll back to the top of the list and scroll back down, I’m limited to 20 again. AND notifications for my posts still aren’t in the list. I have a brand new iPhone 6s Plus (3 months), so if Facebook doesn’t fix it soon, I am going to be convinced that the problems are a way to push people to upgrade their phones to the newest versions.
Getting worse instead of better
by CyndiB51 on 2018/01/27 16:23
I can see that rating the app makes no difference to the developers. The same problems I complained about last year still exist, and some pictures and GIFs never load. And now the notification that someone liked your post has to be clicked on to remove it from the notification list. So you end up having to go back to the post twice to remove the "like" notification and to read the comment they left. So useless. One thing these bad-to-worse updates are doing for me is helping me to break my FB addiction. 2017: The latest update (7/1) did nothing to make the slowness any better. I am spending less time on Facebook because of this crappy app. Clicking on a notification takes almost a minute to load, very aggravating. And please please bring back the option that allows us to choose not to see all our friends' likes. I had to hide several of my friends just because their likes flooded my newsfeed. The "I don't want to see this" option doesn't work for likes. Also, it randomly skips back to the top of the feed so that you lose your place when scrolling down. The people who update this app must never use it.
So unfair
by nah fah on 2018/12/14 02:52
So I’ve been using Facebook for 5 years now and I thought I liked it or loved it. Everyone seem to moved on to new social media while I’m still using Facebook on Facebook I have so much memories a picture of my grandma who had passed away a voice clips from her and I thought connected with family and a lot of my grandma voice clip are left in Facebook when she passed a few week ago before I sleep I play that clips but then one night everything changed about what I thought about Facebook there were this dude who sent me nude and I told him to leave me alone he wouldn’t at a time I didn’t thought if reporting him cause it didn’t come across my mind I was too tired and when it came across it was too late the dude reported me before I reported him and the Facebook sent me an email saying my Facebook permanently been disabled and all it comes across my mind was I didn’t do anything I sending many many replied back and today it came bad and said that that’s their last email for me and I was crying cause all my messages from my grandma the memories and her voice clips I cried and now I feel like it’s unfair I’ll never thought of hating Facebook but now I can’t say the same sadly.
Shutting down
by Amyncosolo on 2017/10/03 06:32
I don't know why but lately Facebook app has been shutting down and going to my main screen while I'm reading something😡very annoying!!! Fix this bug please! It also refreshes on its own. That's really annoying too when you are going through comments and then back out wanting to continue where you were before going to the comments and it decides on its own "nope you were done scrolling" 🙄 Nothing has been fixed. It still does all of the above even tho there's been tons of updates. Seriously fix this issue it's annoying! Stars went down bc it still hasn't been fixed STILL REFRESHES ON ITS OWN! When will this be fixed??? In the middle of reading something in Facebook and go to my internet for a second and then back to Facebook and it decides I was done and refreshes and sends me back to the top! Very annoying and j lose posts I was in the middle of reading. Why won’t you fix this issue. Many people have the same issue yet you don’t fix it!! Stars went down yet again bc it’s not fixed. One 1 star to go and honestly if I could give it a 0 star I would! Fix the freaking problem already!!!
Seriously?!?!?! By Highnessty
by CAQueen on 2018/12/19 18:55
First, a note 2 all of u who r bothered by the “privacy issue”. FB IS NOT PRIVATE! If u do not want 2 b seen online... DON’T. GO. ONLINE. I don’t trust people who want 2 hide. Seriously. I have no issue keeping it simple & transparent. If I was online & some1 asks whether I was or not I tell them the truth. Feels much better than getting caught in a lie. Facebook is not a place of privacy/peace. Period. U want privacy & peace? Turn off your computer, phone, tablet, or @ least turn off your WiFi & go read a book or watch a movie. & if u do not want it on FB, how about, oh, I dunno... NOT POSTING IT ON FB?!?! There’s a nu idea. Now, this 1 is directly 2 FB; stop “fixing” 💩that isn’t broken! Jesus Christ on crutches! Just STOP already! Every time I get used 2 the nu format u change it! Second, I am legally blind. WHY DID U SHRINK THE PRINT & squeeze a bunch of stuff on my homepage/feed?!?! Now it looks 2 busy, like a newspaper. I stay away from newspaper 4 that very reason. I was overjoyed when the very first 📱 came out bcuz I could read my news in large print. Now that purpose is defeated. People, stop complaining about your “privacy”. & FB, please. 4 the love of all that is holy, get the large print format back. PLEASE.
Posts not visible
by Catrophy2 on 2018/10/24 02:04
The latest update is a mess. The gifs are now shown in a different vertical format with the lowest ones not fully visible or clickable. Posts (your own and/or those of friends) are not showing up for hours to days. Some people can see them and comment while others see no post, only the comments. The app resets your privacy setting to default to showing your location so that FB can yet again bypass your own preference for PRIVACY and send you location-based ads and suggested events near you even though they PROMISED to respect your privacy from now on. DAYS have passed (close to a week) since the posts are not showing for everyone and no fix has yet been released. Worse, FB does not feel the need to tell you what’s in each update of the FB and Messenger apps so you have no idea whether you want to update it or not. Not to mention their selective censorship and removal of accounts they get political pressure to remove without offering any warning to the account holder or opportunity to save photos or posts before losing complete access. A very bad decision that is leading many loyal followers to leave FB.
Marketplace ratings.
by Westinian on 2018/07/03 01:11
I think the marketplace is probably the worst way to sell/buy things. Only because you can rate people without them actually buying anything. I found this out when someone rated me badly for no reason other then me telling him no that’s too low for an item he was trying to buy. It’s very unfair. Look at how other selling/buying apps do it. You CAN NOT rate anyone without them BUYING something first. But it’s “okay” because you’re just recommending the seller/buyer. But they can just hide there reviews so no one knows what you actually have. So there is no point in a rating system. And they can only rate you if you message back or they message you back. So if you try selling something and someone is just being mean they can go around messaging people after getting a reply then rate them badly. I know I’m not the only one who has this problem. But it is a BIG problem with the marketplace. It is very unfair and can impact seller and buyers. And personally I don’t think a social app should try to be a marketplace as well anyway. It kinda defeats the whole purpose of being sociable when the market place is full of people who just want to ruin your reputation.
Buggy
by imbeginningtohateapple on 2018/10/13 00:04
This app is very buggy and hasn’t been through enough testing. Thorough testing would show many bugs including not being able to see full photo sets from the Facebook feed without clicking on them one by one and then even when I click on the original post, it will only show me the preview photos and I am able to swipe through them (the first four or so), but not the rest. Secondly, there are menu issues that differ from the normal site which make it confusing and difficult to go to google for assistance in finding something. Lastly, to expand from the last point, some links are difficult to find. For example, an event I had just clicked “interested” on before leaving the page did not show up on the main events page. It took me searching the name of the event to find it when it could have been two clicks away. Efficiency is an issue with this app and it does have bugs, but I use it to avoid having to download messenger. I don’t use it often, but might start if they made it more user friendly (ha).
Does nothing but frustrate
by lilspiffy on 2018/12/11 06:31
The latest update makes every photo rotate to fit the screen no matter the orientation that’s locked on your device. The “most recent” page includes the most recent comments (seriously!?) and not just posts. So you have to scroll through posts from a month ago if a friend said “nice” on it today. The fact that you can’t turn off notifications for friend suggestions (Yes, suggestions!) finally had me turn off all notifications all together. Then it started notifying me anyway that a friend had commented on some random post to try to entice me into turning notifications back on. Really? You then notify me of something I do not want in order to convince me that notifications are great??... ugh. As if that weren’t enough, they created the “marketplace” and put the notification numbers on it. I hate those little numbers. This forces me to go to the marketplace tab to make it stop screaming little red numbers at me. Reddit gets it. Let us actually see what we want to see in the order in which it was received. If we don’t want to see political crap, let us block it and not the beloved family member who is driving you nuts with Trump posts.
So buggy
by JuliaK123 on 2018/05/07 17:15
I get I have an older iPhone with less storage, but 6 years of pictures taking up less space than this app? Really? I hate deleting and reinstalling, but why isn’t there another option? It consumes battery and memory like no other app. Also- what’s up with all the adds? I did the “see these people first” but instead I have to see a my post/rant regarding a traffic jam from 6 years ago and an add about some gel makeup or Walmart. I understand needing to make money via selling adds but there’s gotta be a better way of doing it. If every time I open the app for 2 weeks I’m presented with the same add- that eats up battery because it’s running music and video and my phone dies cuz it drained 7% of my battery in the process. How is that actually going to help sell the product? Maybe a small window on the side, so your friends posts- or at the very least “see first” can be seen first. Don’t make “go live” so easy to accidentally hit. Its constant and Im ready to throw my phone and run when it starts. How often does the avg person want to “go live”? Common sense: ease of accessibility should correlate to use.
Another update, another fail
by K_Dubbs77 on 2017/11/09 17:30
***I stick with my original review because it still very much holds true...and now after the latest “update”, any time you click on a post, all of the comments are blank. Get your act together fakebook Seriously, for all your pathetic attempts at updates that simply only erase negative comments, could you actually fix something in it. It's bad enough you ignore all of the comments you receive, but you make the app worse with every update. To the point now that my news feed is a cluttered mess with things you think I want to read, that repeat from days earlier, just now in an a more unappealing format. "Every update includes improvements for speed and reliability"...yea, not so much. There's nothing improved or faster, as usual per every update it's slower, worse, and buggier than the previous version...so how about finally addressing some of the issues this app has had for the past two plus years that the users continue to point out yet you developers continue to ignore, instead of adding pointless features that nobody cares about anyway. The one star rating I'm forced to give this is way beyond more than it deserves.
Enough with refreshing the newsfeed!
by Kristycake on 2017/11/06 15:58
I never write reviews, but these recent updates make me want to delete Facebook. 6 months ago, if I needed to pause my Facebook scrolling go do something else, I would just click someone’s picture and it would “hold my place” in my newsfeed. This was great. I’m a mom to a toddler and I oftentimes have to multitask. NOW, if I switch to a different app or put my phone down for 10 SECONDS to do something else, my newsfeed refreshes, and starts at the top. This is infuriating when I’m in the middle of reading an article or looking at an album of pictures. What is the purpose of this? Who is it benefitting? Certainly not your users. I find myself getting on Facebook less and less these past few weeks because I get more annoyance than enjoyment out of it. Do you not do any kind of market research before you implement these things? And please, get rid of the camera. Everyone and their brother has a camera on their phone. I think we’re set! I’m tired of swiping left to exit a post and accidentally hitting the camera which takes 10 seconds to load. I can’t imagine what your UI/QA teams get paid to “ok” these poorly planned “enhancements”.

I used to love this app because I never had a flaw with it, but in the past year, with all the updates I keep having issues with laying videos on my phone. I have an iPhone XS Max on AT&T and I never have any issues loading video or media on any other app. But for some reason now I always have problems when I’m watching videos. I mostly watch videos on Facebook so it’s quite annoying that I have to kill the app EVERY time I open it. When I try to watch a video it will load the first ten seconds and will stop. When I press play it will play the last second and stop at the same exact time. After a few tries of playing it, the message “Unable to play video. Check the strength of your connection and try again.” Comes up on the screen. Then I’m forced to scrub at least 10-15 seconds more into the video last that point, while missing vital information of the video. And then it happens again at a different time in the video! Soooo annoying. Every time I use Facebook this happens. No matter what update it is. And I know it’s the app because I used to have the regular iPhone X and it used to do it on that phone to! FACEBOOK HAS GONE DOWNHILL.
Unwanted sounds. Huge unusable app.
by TamaraMonkey on 2018/09/05 22:03
I kept hoping Facebook would stop switching in app sounds back on and that they would also do away with trying to force me to create a passcode, but the undoing of my preferences by the app has become relentless. I have to switch off the app sounds daily. It’s obnoxious! I never wanted them in the first place. How many times will I have to inform the app that I want the sounds shut off for good? It is unpleasant to hear cheesy clicking and clacking sounds as you simply move from post to post on Facebook. Horrible idea. It’s not only that. This is the largest most bloated battery sucking app there is. It bogs down my phone. What others have said about the updates consuming all of their storage is absolutely true. I wasn’t going to write a negative review even for the constant unnecessary toggling on of the app sounds, but every time there’s an update for this app there is no room for it on my phone. I have almost nothing on my phone. How is this app mobile friendly in any way? It’s a behemoth. I’m going to collect my personal photos and documents from it and delete it. I’ll happily find other places to socialize on the Internet. Sorry.
Facebook Messenger
by changemessenger on 2018/10/12 05:51
Please find a way not to show all your friends when you’re on FB. I sometimes like to zone out on FB just to pass the night. It is very very annoying to receive pop-ups in the wee small hours of the night from people (most often men) whom I barely know. There are no boundaries on Messenger. What I mean by this is that anyone can Message or even call anyone else whether they are friends or not. I have been harassed and annoyed in this manner also by a man who was drunk and didn’t want to take no for an answer in the middle of the night, calling on Messenger over and over again. I had to threaten to call police. How did he know I was awake and alone? Messenger! It can also bring up trust issues with people in relationships who don’t know if their significant other is live chatting with a side piece or playing FarmVille in the wee small hours of the night. I’m a private person who likes to keep my business to myself. Find a way, please, to let the user decide whether or not they want to let anyone or no one pop up and interrupt their lives with Messenger. I regularly install and then uninstall, when it could just be so easy to fix it. Please do.
Nothing loads anymore
by cevans172 on 2018/08/18 11:35
I’ve been a faithful Facebook user for years. It is my go to social media platform and I love it. However for the last couple months I’ve noticed it won’t load random things. Images, comments, and video will stop loading if I’ve been scrolling for a minute or two. Sometimes I’ll be just hopping on and comments won’t load for something. It doesn’t matter if I’m on WiFi or data. I’ve even gone as far as to uninstall it and reinstall it twice this week, which worked for that night and stopped the next day. I never used to have this problem until after I got the iPhone X. My husband just switched phones to the iPhone X like me (got mine on Mother’s Day) and now he experiences it too, and we have friends who say they noticed it as well on this phone but when they switched phones, it was all good. Is there possibly a compatibility flaw between Facebook and the new iPhone? I hate not being able to use it like I used to. Hopefully this can be fixed so we can keep using it.

New posts feature

Facebook needs to fix the new post feature! It always says no one has new posts.

Update Fix = Fail
by Yo Sakic on 2019/05/22 05:08
So the latest update makes it nearly impossible to type. No caps lock. The “cursor” jumps around and suddenly you’re typing a new word RIGHT in the middle of another word you typed already. Fix this. God. Please.
Get it under control
by NasiaDaP😍😘 on 2019/05/22 05:06
My videos for Facebook story uploads slow & my timeline always says error no matter how many times I refresh it it stays with the same 4 people everyday. I tried deleting & reinstalling it but it doesn’t work still 🤬🤯😤😤😤
Frustrated
by religious facebooker on 2019/05/22 04:59
I was excited to update this app until I did and now I only get one post on my news feed at a time . I have to refresh to get one more then refresh to have three and do on. It doesn’t let me just scroll through my newsfeed. Very disappointed .
Friends list completely gone.
by saxy87 on 2019/05/22 04:22
Suddenly my entire friends list vanished. I have 10 friends now. They are the last 10 people I became friends with only.
Hate facebook
by Unruly Pain on 2019/05/22 04:18
Why is facebook burying settings that enable me to unfollow? Seems like much of the quick settings have recently been reformatted into more obscure locations with too many extra steps to tinker with. Another stupid update on a social platform I wish would finally die.
STOP LISTENING TO ME
by Perfectly Simple on 2019/05/22 04:00
I’m so sick of having private conversations with friends or my partner, in person, out loud, and then seeing ads for whatever we were talking about on FB. For effs sake STOP. This is disgusting. I want any possible alternative to FB.
Facebook ruined my life
by OverthrowThe2PartySystem on 2019/05/22 03:46
I downloaded Facebook 10 years ago at the young, impressionable age of 13, naively thinking “this will be a fun way to post song lyrics online and virtually poke people I have a crush on without ever having to talk to them in real life”. Well everything was going smoothly, I was successfully avoiding human interaction and faithfully tending to my fake vegetable garden when all of a sudden Russian agents in the Kremlin’s employ took advantage of Facebook’s advertisement logarithm/privacy invasion policy and bought $100,000 worth of campaign ads, undermining the (previously flawless) American “democratic” system and landing us with a racist human Cheeto for president. Since then I have spent every day crying hysterically about the state of our country. Also, the app takes up too much space on my phone. 0/10 would not recommend to a friend, especially near election season
WTH

Keeps crashing
Wish it worked
by Disappointed is already taken. on 2019/05/22 03:20
As many people use this app you would think it would be better then it is. All we see is ads after ads for sponsors and retail stores trying to get you to buy stuff. Every time it’s update stuff stops working. Market place hardly ever works and if you hide the ads they just come back something different.

Nazi Facebook the killer of free speech
by silentmajority123 on 2019/05/22 03:15
Facebook is sharing your personal information. They need to be sued. The silence certain political views. The morons running this site must be some serious weird cafe latte enema receiving idiots. Their teams are slow to review what their stupid bots pick up. Someone needs to give them some competition. Unless that goes against NSA facially profiling everyone and documenting their lives illegally. They get one star.

Please fix this bug. My friends show up one day and the next day they’re gone and the next day they come back. Many people have told me that their Facebook is doing the same thing so can you please fix this

I dislike Facebook it's not worth the time anymore
by Books are awesome. on 2019/05/22 01:38
I've been on Facebook since 2014 and now because they just 'now' created a rule, my post from years ago are getting me blocked. They should count the new ones I post not from months or even years ago. I'm very disappointed.
STOP
by kjroberson745 on 2019/05/22 01:24
STOP trying to make swipe pictures happen. It's NOT happening. Nobody that I know likes it and I use Facebook every day. Keep it how it is where I can see thumbnails of the first 3-5 pictures of a photo post without having to click or "swipe" them. It was cute that way and it actually worked and didn't have a spasm every time you tried to look at the pictures. Give your users the few simple things they've actually asked for and stop trying to make "improvements" that only make the app frustrating to use. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
Things are going along ok, but
by Helmet.Head on 2019/05/22 01:21
When I’m watching a video or even readings postings and comments. The app crashes?? It closes and I loose track of where the video ended up. I have to retrace my steps to posts??
Won’t finish installing the update. And now I can’t use my app at all.
by Sundial76 on 2019/05/22 00:38
The app has not finished updating all day and now I can’t use it. This blows. Normally it finishes within minutes.

Your community standards are bull crap
by Mrs.Jacki Scott on 2019/05/22 00:28
Your community standards are total bull crap. They allow stuff they shouldn’t and they block things they shouldn’t. I am a grown adult that should not be blocked from my account which I have made and you’ve made money off of. To treat adults like they are children is total bull crap. You have people trolling other people yet they don’t get marked for abusing your standards. But yet if their victim tells them to F off and posts proof of they’re harassment for others to avoid these people. The victim is then marked for abusing community standards. Your community standards are total bull crap and need to be recalibrated. How is it that you guys allow porn pics even when they are abusing your standards. You allow people to post things that kids shouldn’t see like porn, murders and people getting beat up. But you won’t let allow two adults to hash it out through words??? Your standards need to change to where adults are not being blocked from their pages for mundane crap. I am going to gather a boycott against Facebook for treating adults like children after you have made so much money from us all by selling our info to other companies. You have no right to treat adults like children by blocking them from their pages and allowing trolls to harass people. Change your algorithm for your standards!!
Latest update blows

I’m always looking for Wi-Fi and getting very tied of it...I hope to leave FB soon I’m just sick of having to do this every other day!! Ugh just spent 2 hours and still not boot it up... I have better things to do with MY LIFE besides constantly seeking Wi-Fi Thanks!!
“Updates”
by wizard202 on 2019/05/21 22:35

Dog sh*t

Old Facebook settings
by Myraj4life on 2019/05/21 21:10
So, I have been updating this app for awhile and I still have the same old Facebook layout. Other People I know have a completely different layout then me , like the pictures on the app page, but I don’t. I even deleted the app and reinstalled it again and nothing.

Still clumsy UI to stop videos
by VadMK on 2019/05/21 20:51
This has been an issue for some time now. Starting a video in the News Feed is easy, stopping it ain’t, because you can only stop it by targeting a minuscule x sign in the bottom left corner. Clicking anywhere else in the windows doesn’t work unlike stopping a video on YouTube, for example. I give you three stars for that minus one star for ignoring this UI issue. This is not the first time I raise
I hate ads

Awful
by Leann Ashley on 2019/05/21 19:39

New update bugs
by Garfield_Cat on 2019/05/21 19:26

Incompetence
by BigThelonious on 2019/05/21 18:23
You half-wits ruined the background colors. Doesn’t surprise me any, smarts has never been a trait anyone who works on Facebook has EVER had anyway. Quite the opposite in fact.
App won’t open
by Hellur123 on 2019/05/21 18:18
Every time I click the app to open it, it just closes. It won’t open at all so I have to access Facebook from a browser.
No pics unless you give your whole camera access to Facebook
by Triballs on 2019/05/21 18:00

Continues to fix things that aren’t broken and let broken things stay broken
by TreyAldermen on 2019/05/21 17:26
With this update when you go into portrait mode it cuts off half the screen for a chat window. I’m not sure ANYBODY asked for that. How about you fix things like comments not loading when following a notification and things like that instead of adding in features people don’t want. At the very least give me the option to go full screen or have the chat window.
Comment section broken
by KassidyNicole on 2019/05/21 17:05
I can’t ever read the comments! It won’t let me click “load more” or even like, or 30 seconds after I try it will finally work and scroll me all the way back up. Anybody else having this problem?!
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it
by suck_it_easy on 2019/05/21 17:03

You guys keep doing updates, that are redundant But NOW, these updates have wayyyy to many cliches Takes to long to load anything on to your NEW AND IMPROVED” I was trying to talk / text a family member.... then the update kicked in and now we can’t even see each other’s reply’s This is crazy I really wish you all would just STOP and leave it alone!!! So you get 2 stars, if I could have given you a 1/2 you’d have gotten 1 & 1/2 that’s how bad Facebook has become
PLEASE ADD DARK MODE LIKE MESSENGER
by Savage T.R. on 2019/05/21 16:53
You guys added a Dark / Night mode to messenger. Can you please do that for the Facebook app? Also, WHY does the app need to take up so much space on my phone ? These are iPhones. They have limited space capabilities. Why does the Facebook app use so much data compared to using the web version on google chrome? ITS THE SAME THING!

Locked out
by bjedi76 on 2019/05/21 16:33
I have been locked out of my Facebook and messenger. There seems to be no help for me. No customer service. I just keep getting routed in a loop. It asks for a four digit code that I’ve never done, then it asked to verify my identification. I have requested the passcode to my phone but it never arrives. I managed to get it to send me an email code, but as soon as I enter the code it sent to me, it tells me it needs to verify my identification again and I’m back where I started. Does Facebook just not want me to have a page anymore..?

Fix Birthday posts
by Stone804 on 2019/05/21 14:57
Can you please bring back regular birthday posting? I don’t need to be so obnoxious about posting a big banner post on my friends page, so now I have to wait a day to post “recent birthdays” until I get the regular posting option back, or post ahead of time when you get the option for “tomorrow” birthdays. I have a lot of friends so it’s too much extra work to go to their individual pages every day to circumvent this ridiculous obnoxious “personalized card” option. I just want to acknowledge their birthdays without all the extra fluff

by Stevenrck on 2019/05/21 13:34
It isolates you from real connections between family and friends it’s been proven to spy on you oh and every time they make a new update it works so much less than before it updated so if you need a new addiction to take the place of something more important then this is a great app for you
stupidest blocking rules
by kimpurrlee on 2019/05/21 13:18

Cant mute push notifications
by V Justin V on 2019/05/21 13:16
I accidentally turned on Push Notifications. I cannot disable them through the app, only mute them for up to 8 hours. You could put the option to permanently mute them, but you didn’t. Makes absolutely no sense, except to lure people in to get stupid notifications from dying Facebook. I knew eventually I’d be done on here but I didn’t think so soon. 0/10 un-useable app.

🤬What the Hell🤬
by IhatePeople13 on 2019/05/21 11:42
Either people are snitching on me, or Facebook is spying on me. I thank a one-star reviewer for explaining what happened to them, because I’m convinced I’m being tracked. That’s a complete invasion of my privacy. I should be able to post my blunt opinions to only my very few fb friends without getting banned for 3 days. I’m permanently deleting my accounts after figuring out how to keep in contact with my loved ones. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾
Posting/Page Rolls issue on business page
by Aimers55 on 2019/05/21 10:50
May 21st - cannot post as the business again. Worked for like 3 days and then went back to same situation below. WTH? This is clearly an app issue because I none of these issues apply when on my laptop or another app called FaceBook Pages. As of May 9th, I can’t post on my business page as the business. It will only let me post with my personal FB account. I have Admin rights and can see all those tools, can share to the page as the business, can also like/comment as either the business or myself. Can post as business from laptop. I added an Admin this morning and that person doesn’t have this issue. Have removed and reloaded app more than once. Removed myself as admin and added back as well

Multiple photos post

If someone is posting a post with multiple photos in it Its hard to know that !!! The first photo is taking all the screen and i need to swipe left to see the other photos !! But how can i know if there is other photos ??!! The sign which shows (for example 1/12) goes very quickly that i don't see it alot U should give a clear sign that there is more than 1 photo in the post
Just keeps going downhill
by Gerineli on 2019/05/21 06:06
This app has many amazing features that I love, however the most recent updates have made it impossible to utilize them. Every time I attempt to use these features the app shuts down on me. It is so frustrating! There’s too many bugs that need to be worked out for an app that’s been around for a decade.

by Nicolebrezzyyyyyy on 2019/05/21 05:53
Please stop updating automatically. it’s really annoying like somedays it will automatically have the download. symbol under it and i would have to be near wifi to update it which is so dumb before. we could download Facebook with no problem without wifi now in order. to use it again we have to update it again on wifi I’m not understanding. can y’all please change it to be more easy instead of downloading it back on wifi and let us download it without wifi freely.

You are the product

If you don’t pay for a service, then you are paying with your privacy. You are the product. I use Facebook as little as I can get away with.
Get it together fb!
by Nickname80391 on 2019/01/14 20:40
This app gets worse with every update! Every time I get a notification, I click on the notification to open it and.... nothing. Just the wheel of death! On top of the many other ongoing issues. I would like to see my friends posts, like alllll of them. If I didn’t want to see them I would unfollow or just unfriend them completely. Same with business posts I follow them because I want to see their posts. I do not want to see the same old ads over & over. I would love it if the sort by “most recent” feature actually worked! I want to see the most recent posts first and then go back chronologically from there. NOT: 1 hr ago, 5 minutes ago, just now, 3 days ago, 2 hrs ago, last week, etc that we are getting now! I don’t need to see something over and over again every time someone new comments on it, if I have not commented or followed the post obviously I have moved on. Also I would like to choose what I get notified about. I know we can choose some things but not everything, ie. I do not want to be notified every time someone goes “live” or adds to their story! I love the idea of fb but you have users telling you all the improvements we want and we just get more things we didn’t ask for and half the time they don’t even work correctly.
Glitch Fixes Needed
by jlccourt on 2017/10/14 20:41
Developers need to fix two things: the first is releasing all new status background options to ALL users. I see other users get new background options on a regular basis, and yet, I have had the same 14 options for a long time now. The second thing developers need to fix is the perpetual number 1 on the badge app icon and within the app itself, even if there are no unread notifications. The app’s description in the App Store is that “To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly” and that “Every update to our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.” We’ll, “new features” as of late haven’t been made available to me, and the only “reliability” I’ve encountered lately is the permanent number 1 on my notifications. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on both my phone and tablet to no avail. The problems seem to be account-related as the issues affect my account when I use my laptop, where I don’t use an app. I’ve reported both the lack of status background options for my account as well as the notifications glitch. I’m not all that confident that developers will fix the problems. 🙁
Sad
by teacuptoni on 2018/12/05 05:37
Honestly Facebook has gone down the tubes within the past year or two. The fact that I have so many friends from high school and college and grade school, work ect, but only see about 8 of the same people is awful. The next thing is the fact it’s not only required to have the fb messenger app downloaded but updated as well. It won’t even allow safari to use it in the browser is so obnoxious. Then the fact that group will have so many members posting but yet the most recent of the ones are not immediately available. Even when the notification is clicked it shows posts from hours if not days ago. Appalling. It’s just so unorganized. So really the only way to view what actually notified you is to turn into the FBI agent you used to be when fb was still fresh top dog when MySpace became obsolete just to find the comment your friend replied to on a video in a group you guys are in. And of course last but not least of the downfalls is a video 45 seconds long gets interrupted mid sentence by a totally irrelevant ad or by something that was mentioned in a real life conversation which I just think is totally creepy. Sorry for all the rambling and riñón sentences but I’m just livid that apps force updates and crap when they’re crap and and making money from ads but then turn into their crappiest versions of themselves.
Glitches
by Rickie archer on 2018/01/14 17:08
With a site so big glitches are expected, but I’m tired of going to most recent to see what my friends actually post just to see the same 3 friends’ posts. Typically I see 4 “new” posts (by New I mean ones I have yet to see not recent) then it shows me the highlights of my news feed or what people posted 3 weeks ago that I have yet to see. I have 60 or so friends, 10 don’t really use it, but I find myself only seeing posts from people I regularly talk to in messenger and that’s it. If I don’t talk to them in messenger Facebook doesn’t let me see their posts. I’ve even ensured I’m following them. The next thing is the ads. It’s great Facebook is free and directs people to products they might enjoy, but when I say something is irrelevant why is it continuously shown? “Want some weight loss pills?” Nope I’m ok with being obese thanks. “How about diapers for a baby even though you don’t have one?” Nope. “Oh we noticed you enjoyed that video about makeup maybe you have acne.” Even if I did I wouldn’t care. Some of the ads are depressing, my husband and I can’t have children yet I’m constantly berated by ads about babies, even after I say hide ad, irrelevant, don’t show this again, or hide ads like this. It’s like showing an old person an ad for a funeral home. Can we please at least listen when people say “DON’T SHOW THIS!”
Facebook Ruined by Facebook
by Byronic_Hero on 2019/03/06 14:03
I don’t use Facebook anymore. My declining use can be traced directly back to the day they introduced their ridiculous algorithmic feed and made the chronological feed increasingly difficult to access. My feed became increasingly dominated by a handful of accounts that Facebook thought I wanted to see above all else, for some reason. I have no idea why. I guess that’s what happens when you like a post. My fault I guess? I don’t know how their algorithm weights content and posts, but it does not in anyway align with what I care about or how I would weight things I want to see. All the ridiculous nonsense Clickbait posts that people unthinkingly share end up polluting my feed, drowning out thoughtful posts that take a little bit of time to digest and are thus less “popular.” It’s no wonder Russian trolls decided to use Facebook as a way to spread misinformation like wildfire. They know the algorithms are primed for precisely that kind of popular nonsense. What a shame. Facebook was so great. It helped me feel in touch with so many people after I moved cities. But the algorithm eventually kept them out of my feed. And probably me out of theirs. And I think none of them even post on Facebook anymore unless they want to share baby photos with grandparents. And thus, everyone I know essentially stopped using Facebook.
What the heck???
by QnA_Facts on 2019/01/07 03:28
... 🕕 ... 🕘 ... 😒 For a considerable length of time I've been reporting issue after issue and nothing has been done to respond or resolve any of the reported issues. What I do get is returned hurtful rhetoric that they know what the issue is, but refuse to acknowledge or fix the actual problem. What makes it worse is they continue to censor my voice and ability to utilize my device as I see fit denying my online and real life civil rights. This MUST be addressed and fixed ASAP, as I have done nothing wrong to violate the Terms & Services yet the App and Platforms are consistently violating my rights and utilizing my personal information for their own uses and benefits; all without proper attribution or credit to me. This is beyond acceptable and is severely hampering productivity and my right to peaceful enjoyment and use of services I have paid and continue to pay for. FIX THIS ALL IMMEDIATELY!!! I guess the Facebook organization and or developers have not heard of or don't care about ECPA (Electronic Communications Privacy Act) or the numerous other rules and laws that continue to violated against me. Never once have they indicated to me that I broke any rules, therefore it's unjust that my access and use be denied, subsequently provided erroneous, confusing, and misleading information about the information reported on a multitude of occasions.
Developers left me Disappointed
by audreys_mom on 2018/03/18 12:59
With every new update that comes out I hold my breath, just hoping this will be “the one” that will fix the hodgepodge of issues with Facebook. The one that bugs me most is Marketplace. I’ve emailed support multiple times with no response (except the auto-generated “thanks for your feedback” email, of course). Then finally, 2 weeks after what was my 3rd request in 3 months time, they responded by saying they received my report and that they appreciate my patience and while they can’t update everyone who submits a report, they’re using the report to make FB better - TICKET CLOSED... Really? Not only this but recently I also lost the option to view posts by “most recent”. FB Customer Service/Support and developers just don’t care what users want. They don’t respond to problem reporting in a timely fashion and it’s now been over a year that people have been complaining about not having access to Marketplace, not just me. Although mine hasn’t been gone that long, it’s ridiculous that this issue can’t be resolved! Especially when the ability to access it just disappears one day yet buyers can still see it and send you message about it but, as the seller, you can’t make changes to it and you can’t even view it! I’ve lost sales because of this. Disappointing Facebook!!
Invasion of privacy
by Jack mehoff! on 2018/02/02 07:25
Facebook has blocked my account until I send them proof of my identity. They’re asking to see either my drivers license or credit card with my name on it. Yea ok facebook👌🏻. Why would I share that information with you when I can just create another account with the same name without sharing my personal info? It doesn’t matter what Facebook does a user can always create another account thru a different cell phone. Facebook should just call it quits. they’ve shown they can’t control and often endorse the fake news their site puts out. Their employees are clearly out of touch with their peers and most of the country. It’s blatantly obvious they are over privileged and pretentious people that will never know a “hard days work” and think accountability is something their accountants do. As proof they won’t stop, they’ll continue to run it into the ground by listening to half-wit suggestions from people who are desperately trying to stand out from their coworkers rather than just accepting that the best wheel design is round. Facebook -constantly lowering the bar. Intelligent people know how easy it is to manipulate their lesser counterparts. Facebook doesnt understand this because they are not intelligent but rather inexperienced , self entitled, over confident and pretentious people. INTELLIGENCE CAN NOT BE LEARNED.
Take away the new Snapchat feature! It’s so dangerous!
by Mama's Not Impressed on 2018/08/23 03:19
I’m so frustrated! As a parent, Snapchat is on our list of apps we don’t allow. It was designed by a couple of college students who wanted to facilitate sexting. Fine for adults who are into that, but the problem comes when these platforms are significantly marketed to teenagers! We know cyberbullying and sexting cause psychological damage to teens... except now parents won’t be able to intervene because messages and pictures are able to automatically disappear in a few seconds!! As someone who suffered “predatorial grooming” at the age of four (being coached to trust a 15 year old who then molested me) you just don’t trust teenagers to make responsible choices with that much privacy. I realize people can manually delete messages, but this also takes away that personal choice to retain an abusive message for the purpose of reporting it. You’d have to think fast and screenshot it. Let’s not strip away one more layer of INTENTIONAL accountability. It’s not healthy. If I have to make the decision to delete something so I’m not going to get caught with it, there is a psychological process happening that is important. Knowing it will delete itself....well now it doesn’t matter anymore, does it? Let the mature adults sign up for these features on platforms marketed to adults.
Thanks fb 👎 FOR NOTHING!!!
by ckm556 on 2018/02/26 02:27
Been on for about a year. Started 2 guitar groups and one day about a week ago you decided that I didn’t need an acct anymore and deactivated my acct literally as I’m typing a post. I know what you’re going to tell me... you are going to tell me it’s because I didn’t use my given first name. Well if it was such a problem then you shouldn’t have gave it the ok after you blocked me when I opened it the first tome and I sent a pic of my ID and then you ok’d it. My fb name met the fb policy requirements when I opened my acct!!! Instead you waited until I spent time building my guitar repair business and had hundreds of contacts and spent hours on end building my groups. Now the groups are open with no admin or moderators to deal with anything. I opened another acct IN MY GIVEN NAME!!! and you disabled that in 15 minutes. I opened another acct using a different email address with my given name and you closed it down in about 30 minutes. I sent an appeal about my original acct and haven’t heard a thing. It’s impossible to contact anyone to actually help you get something done. I don’t post anything that is offensive, I rarely talk about anything other than guitar related topics and still I’m banned for no reasonable explanation. Your community help forum is a joke. Thanks a lot fb!!! FOR NOTHING!!!
Updates Ongoing Issues
by HollyL45 on 2018/10/09 19:53
I’m an IT professional, why aren’t your developers testing new development to ensure they haven’t broken previously working basic functionality before releasing a new update? You are ruining the FB experience for your users. Every time you release an update lately something that has always worked no longer works. If I wasn’t dependent on FB to keep up with my friends and family and my professional photography groups I would have deleted it long ago. Most of these marketed “new and improved updates” are anything but and basically useless to the majority of users. Also they are huge updates making it so FB is taking up most of the available space on my phone and I have an IPhoneX 256 GB, not an old phone. I shouldn’t have to delete photos of my family to make room for FB. Notifications still no longer work. This has been going on and repeatedly reported for months. If you want to update something fix what you broke your users would be much happier. Now when I type a comment and make a mistake it won’t let me go back and correct it. It starts deleting everything I previously typed instead of letting me insert additional text or deleted something I typed incorrectly. I have to erase everything and start all over. Very frustrating.
👎Facebook=ПРАВДА (PRAVDA)👎
by planeKrazy on 2018/03/30 05:44
Facebook has tolerance for everything that’s on the ‘left’ or ‘ultra-left’ spectrum of our political divide.. If you’re a centrist or lean somewhat to the ‘right’ you’re out of luck and your views WILL be suppressed through “smart measures”.. A good friend posted a 9/11 memo picture with caption to always remember. Within minutes his account was banned and he had to start a new one with the help of the trusted friends feature. I and several other of his trusted friends wrote to Facebook asking why his account had been shot down? (We had snap shots of the last message he posted). No response from Facebook. Frankly the seemingly ‘random’ erasing of peoples Facebook accounts is very worrisome. I say random but in reality their preferred “FB erasing victim” seems to be a conservative user, some of them have had their accounts for more than a decade. My friend was just such a case. No way to appeal, Facebook simply won’t respond to emails and messages. One day you have an account and the next day you don’t. Absolutely no way to appeal or even get an explanation as to why? Shocking.. Never thought an American company would be so vehemently anti-American. I recently sold all my shares of Facebook, I think this attitude will hurt their long term value.. ___ To “GIM8789” reviewer - I totally agree with you!
Icon/app update
by llogg28 on 2019/05/11 18:40
No. First, this new app icon is AWFUL. The design is absolutely terrible. It’s in a weird balance, uses the space in an uncomfortable way, and I HATE that one side of the crossbar in the “f” is slanted while everything else is vertical. It’s just bad. It looks flat lazy. Stop trying to fix things. It’s not innovative to fix your icon when literally nothing was wrong with the other one. Especially when this was a serious downgrade. Second, I am tired of your freaking newsfeed algorithm. When I open the app, I want to see things from that day...I don’t want to see posts from 5 days ago mixed with posts from 5 minutes ago. It’s awful and messy and misleading. You’ve mostly left Instagram alone (thank god) but seriously...everything I see is old news. Contests, important posts....they all end up being seen too late. I shouldn’t have to go “star” or “see first” every single company or group or friend that I want to see in my feed. Just show me a normal, consecutive line of posts. I promise we’ll all catch what we want and need. I really don’t think any of your users are explicitly asking for this and it’s not innovative, it’s cumbersome. Please take time to review the feedback people are giving. This is just not good.
What is going on with the news feed???
by NicoleRose215 on 2018/09/12 05:50
Up until about a month ago, I never had a problem with the news feed. I’d open my app and I’d go to my Most Recent news feed and I’d see the most recent posts in order, starting with the newest post and then the one before that and so on. It was in chronological order. It made sense and it’s exactly what I wanted to view. Now when I go to my Most Recent news feed, I see something that was posted 2 mins ago, and then the next one is something from 6 hours ago, and then the next one is from 47 mins ago, and then the next one is from last night at 6:24pm, and then the next one is from Monday at 10:07am, and then the next one is from 3 hours ago and like what in God’s name is friggin happening here??????? I’d be better off just calling my friends and asking them to tell me what they’ve posted on Facebook lately because by the time I see it in my news feed, it could be week-old news! You know, sometimes certain pages post important things or time-sensitive information and if the most recent posts aren’t coming up correctly, that’s a huge problem. What’s the point of using this app if it doesn’t work correctly?? Get it together, Facebook!!

App keeps backing me out
by jlFinchmockingbird94 on 2018/07/13 22:48
Ever since the most recent update, there have been multiple occasions where the app will just back me out, taking me straight to my home screen without reason or warning. This usually happens within seconds of entering the app, and never happens just once at a time. Rather, it will happen every single time I try to re-enter the app, often continuing to do so repeatedly, until it finally decides to work normally again. It has proven to be impossible to predict when this problem will occur, and how long it will continue before returning to its proper functioning. At first I thought it was my WiFi and/or network connection, but I now know it can’t be attributed to either one, given that it has now happened on several WiFi networks AS WELL AS while using data. I also have the newest version of iOS, so it can’t be explained by not having updated software, and I have the app set to where I always stay signed in, so I know it has nothing to do with my login, either. I’m sure I can’t be the only one who has been experiencing this, even if I happen to be the only one writing a review about it. Please work on figuring out the cause of this issue and finding a solution, because it has made using the app a complete hassle and annoyance.
Account recovery
by Snuggles2012 on 2018/07/12 01:08
Recently got a new phone and tried to recover my account by phone number. Failed miserably. My account has automatically logged in on my phone for so long I couldn’t remember my log in. When trying to recover my account I was linked to and recovers an account that was not mine. Actually the account was of someone from another country that hadn’t been active since 2012. I no longer have access to old emails or phone numbers. I tried to contact the support team telling them I could provide pictures or personal info to prove that I was the owner of my account that I was trying to log into and have yet to have a response after 3+ days. I tried making a brand new profile on my pc ( with a new email that I have never used for fb before) and got as far as setting a profile picture and adding friends when I was printed with a security message . So now am also locked out of a brand new profile. I wished MySpace was still around because I would honestly just stop using fb . Fb is the main access I have to out of state family as well as uploaded pictures and memories that were not backed up anywhere else. I just want my account back. Why can’t fb have security questionnaire for recovery? Why can’t someone contact me to help me ?

Wish I could delete
by clcx43 on 2018/08/17 00:13
The only reason I still have facebook is because my school posts important updates at times. I get notifications constantly from facebook telling me so and so posted a picture or so and so commented on a post...things like that. These are usually people I don’t even interact with and I do not want these notifications. The only way to stop getting them is to completely unfollow the person, which then takes their posts out of my news feed as well, which I do not want to happen. And even when I unfollow people my phone continues to give me notifications of new people posting things that I don’t care about. The only reason I don’t turn off Facebook notifications all together is, like I said, so I can get important updates from my school’s groups. I’ve turned off every notification setting within the Facebook app that I can and continue to get these notifications on my phone. It is extremely annoying. I will also get badge app notifications saying I have 4 new notifications when I don’t actually have any. Extremely annoying and makes me think I have an important notification to check when I rarely actually do. Will delete my account as soon as I’m done with school if this isn’t fixed.
So seeing as others have the same issues
by SVas85 on 2018/10/19 15:41
I’m all for being able to connect with family and friends. Not everyone has the luxury of international calling, unlimited data/talk/text, etc. that being said, I’ve gotten to a point where I keep my account Deactivated, and my messenger active, I’m not a fan of the fact FB is breeding grounds for a Petri dish variety of BAD MEDIA - like the super negative stuff - that are put there intentionally for others to repost because it triggers them, or tempts them. I personally decided not to even have cable in my home, for the sheer fact that as a kid in the 90’s there was good news, as well as not so great news. Now, it’s all negative and bad. It gets old. Furthermore, I had the WORST issue trying to get away from a stalker that made a total of 8 false profiles to repetitively contact me, even after I blocked him every time. I DID file a report, and nothing happened. So I was forced to delete my account and make a new one with a false name. Whereas it’s convenient to use for communication, I’m not FBs biggest fan, due to the fact it’s been made into (as I said) a breeding ground for negativity. Just saying...
Ugh.
by Mdralfw10 on 2017/12/15 04:49
I had a previous review from years ago, but I figured I'd update it. This app still doesn't work right. I understand that there's bound to be an issue or two with any app, but the fact that it still crashes 10+ times a day, reloads while I'm reading something even if I've clicked on the status, doesn't load videos very well, and is glitchy. Facebook all together is starting to be worthless. I tried to upload a video of my 8 month old dancing to music on a cd of mine, and it wouldn't let me because there was music playing. That's fine, but then it blocked me from uploading videos all together even though it gave the option to discard or post the video. I chose to discard the post. That's not an app issue, but it's a Facebook issue. I see so many people get their posts taken down when there's nothing wrong with it, but by all means, keep letting the photos/videos of dead babies show up. I guess that's ok, but when you have live babies dancing, it's not. It also seems a little racist that if I put a video up of a Caucasian person singing/rapping it doesn't tell me I can't upload it, but when I try to upload a video of an African American singing/rapping it won't let me 💁🏼. Facebook seems to have their priorities backwards.
Updates are getting ridiculous.
by makdaddy5000 on 2019/05/09 04:00
Sometimes trying to stay up to date is not beneficial. It’s getting seriously hard to keep track of where things are on the app. As soon as you get used to things they change again. What about older folks who use the app? They usually can’t keep up as well and will lose interest. No wonder Facebook is on the decline. First off, searching has gotten harder. I used to be able to look someone up and the person I was thinking of would almost always pop up due to mutual friends. Search results used to be ordered that way. Now it’s almost completely random and very unorganized. When I try to search for a post in particular I am just given the option to look up what year it was posted, it would be nicer to select the month. Also, I’m sick of ads in the middle of videos. You may think it’s a good idea and I get it it’s how businesses make money but usually I cut off the video and find it elsewhere because it’s just annoying. Also leads me to lose interest in Facebook. It used to be really good but soon something will probably replace it.
I thought upgrades are supposed to fix “bugs”?
by Carrtunz on 2019/01/22 01:06
I am really getting tired of all the bugs in the Facebook app. I take every update available and my phone apps and operating system are always the latest available. But yet Facebook still gives me nothing but grief. My notifications very often won’t refresh and just freeze or it just keeps quitting and closing the app every 10 seconds, if I can get it to stay open for that long. No matter how many times Log out and log back in or delete the app and reinstall it, it doesn’t stop. No one at Apple can figure it out not can FB support. After a while it stopped for a few weeks and I thought I was home free! But NOPE! Now my entire Newsfeed and Notifications are quitting and won’t stay open or refresh! If I didn’t have so many school and work friends on FB I would get rid of it completely!!!! When the hell are you people going to fix all the bugs and let your users have a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying experience??? MySpace has less problems! You’ve made enough money off this app to fix it, Zuckerberg!!! Hoping a new and better social media app comes out soon! I’m disappointed and disgusted!
Racial Discrimination Against The Black Community On Facebook
by Rubies-Sapphire on 2018/11/28 04:19
Black people are finding that their attempts to create "safe spaces" on Facebook for conversation among themselves are being derailed by the platform itself. Non-black people are reporting what are meant to be positive efforts as hate speech, despite them often not violating Facebook’s terms of service. Their content is removed without notice. Accounts are suspended indefinitely. When these rulings are upheld with little recourse, it upends the communities of color Facebook claims to be supporting. It decreases the likelihood that people will continue to engage at the same level on our platform. Even high-profile figures who are plagued with these issues sometimes have to wait until it’s a major press story for it to be addressed. There is a prevailing theory among many black users that their content is more likely to be taken down on the platform than any other group. Even though the theories are mostly anecdotal, Facebook does little to dissuade people from this idea. Black people continue to use the platform because for many it is still their best way to connect directly with the causes they care about. Our communities should be able to trust that we have their best interests at heart.
Locked Out of Account
by MKaip on 2017/11/19 14:07
If I could give 0 Stars, I would.. Facebook has locked me out of my account for days, saying they need to review a photo of me. There is no one to contact or email to fix it. I have had my account since about 2005 so it doesn’t make sense.. The Help Page is of no help because it consists of regular people who do not have access to unlock accounts. Facebook needs to have a direct contact via Chat or email to assist their customers. When I was able to use the app, it had a lot of bugs and annoying features. It would randomly refresh on its own in the middle of me reading comments, have no rhyme or reason for organizing posts on the News Feed, and constantly suggest potential friends. Just because one friend of mine is friends with someone, doesn’t mean that I want to be. My biggest pet peeve with Facebook is how invasive it is with announcing to all of your friends any time you like a page or comment on a public post. I feel like I can’t comment on a news article without every one of my friends seeing it on their News Feed so I stopped commenting on things a long time ago. This app is terrible, and I can’t even go experience the awfulness that it is because my account is locked..
New update causing newsfeed to freeze
by Pikaboo09 on 2019/02/17 14:13
Didn’t have this problem until yesterday when the new update kicked in. Everything else works fine, notifications, clicking through group posts and whatnot. But as soon as I go to news feed before or after doing other things on the app it just freezes. I’ve reset the app, I’ve reset my phone, I’ve cleared all of Facebook’s caches, and I’m going to try uninstalling and reinstalling next. On another note, I was reminded after seeing someone else’s review about the group notifications as well. It’s rather annoying that Group notifications for new posts and what not see to be randomized. Sometimes I won’t get the notification for a new post, but suddenly I get one of a post that was posted hours or even days ago. The most annoying part about is when you go to the group and try to look at recent member posts, they’re randomized too, there doesn’t seem to be a way to set it to most recently posted, I don’t know what it’s set to but it’s not even most liked or most commented, it’s absolutely random and that boggles my mind.
The Facebook App imposes its own browser
by justsomeguy on 2018/04/27 14:08
According to the Moderator of a respected Geek discussion site, if you’re using the Facebook App to browse Facebook and you hit a link on the App, this opens up a different browser than your smart phone’s Chrome or Safari browser. Facebook’s App has its own browser, or, more accurately, its own web view (basically a browser control that uses the native web browser’s renderer but has its own session management, including its own cookies. The App Store description does not make this clear; nor does it explain why the FB App is designed this way; hence users have no info to help them decide whether to use or not use the App. I’m not saying the FB App is bad; it clearly does provide a richer user experience than simply logging into FB’s website via Safari. But it raises doubts, including what other manipulations or re-directions may be occurring without your knowledge when you skip the App and log in with your preferred, native browser.
Irritating App
by Diane Harris on 2017/10/10 19:38
The app has been driving me crazy for months now. If I stay on the Facebook page, it only blacks out once or twice per evening. If I want to read something (my cousin's newspaper article, for instance) posted by my friends, the app blacks out every time and if I want to continue on Facebook, I have to open the app all over again and hope I can find my place. I'm almost ready to delete the darn thing! Wondering if it's worth the frustration! I've written my problems to the staff through Facebook three times and have received no recommendations. Can the app be fixed? Well, it's about 2 ,months later and nothing has improved. The app still freezes and blacks out. If I try to move from a post to attached info it freezes. Moving down the page to more posts makes it freeze or it blacks out completely. Then I get to start all over opening the app yet again. This is really getting to be more trouble than it's worth. It would be nice if the it people would at least respond in some way. A lot of us are feeling ignored. Not good business practice!
Someone LIED to you
by So Done! on 2018/10/24 16:03
Whomever told you this latest update was a great idea, SHOULD BE FIRED. 1)When notifications come in that I’ve been tagged or someone has replied to a comment I made, it no longer takes you to the post, just to the comment. So if I commented last week and I get a reply today I have absolutely no idea what the original post was about. 2) A notification disappears after I look at it. So if I have to refer back to it for any reason, I have to somehow find the page of the original poster and then hunt for the post. STUPID IDEA 3) When going to some notifications, when you click on it it takes you to a blank post. I see the persons name, the time they posted and maybe if someone reacted to it, but absolutely no post at all. There’s even comments on it but I see no post at all. Yes I have access to their page, I haven’t been blocked and they call me to say “did you see my last post” and all I see is nothing. 3) Auto refresh is annoying. Someone posts an article and I take 2-3 minutes reading it and when I go to comment on it, you’ve refreshed my feed. Thanks for nothing. I’m sick of y’all. If I didn’t need this app to keep in contact with family around the globe, I’d delete it.
It’s free
by MikeBlueRealEstate on 2019/05/10 09:51
I had to write this review...not because I love this app, but because I feel the other reviewers are just bitter. So let me make a few things clear, Facebook isn’t a born right. You have a choice to come here and download it. You also have a choice when you enter your personal information, upload family photos, give your play by play of your daily tasks. Yet so many complain about “security” and “you need to do this”. Folks it’s free, and unless your an advertiser all you have invested in FB is time and finger swipes. The threats you are going to delete it will never happen. The demands to the free app to add this and do that are pretty hilarious as well. It’s like a homeless person wanting food, getting it and then asking “ well maybe next time you can bring me something better” for free of course. To sum it up, if you don’t like it delete it, otherwise go back to posting about your kids lunch, what your terrified of, and why things are so bad for you.
If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it
by Matti moo on 2018/12/03 20:37
Nobody wants a game page or a group page. It’s amazing how many different ways you want to send me push notifications, that I literally only click on so that it will go away. I went in to change my notification settings and it turns out you will not let me turn off all group notifications at once and I have to go through a list and manually select out of 100 groups which ones I want, the slider for all is greyed out. This is totally unnecessary, and nobody asked for this. Why do I have a notification for every time someone goes live? Anytime an event is added at a venue I checked into ONE TIME that’s across the world in a different country? Facebook notifications used to notify me when someone wanted to talk to me, and I’ve done my best to continually update my setting but it’s getting crazy. Now I’ll have 7 notifications and check it and not a single one is about a friend I have that was reaching out to me. Events, game page, so and so went live, so and so checked in safe, I have memories from 10 years ago to look at, so and so posted in this group, like I do. Not. Care. And I don’t need a red push notification making it seem like I should.
No notifications about my posts!
by Sheryl1468 on 2018/11/12 03:56
For the last 2 months, the notification settings in the app are a complete mess. The app will have the red number, but one of them are about my own posts. Any reactions or comments to MY posts don’t load in the list of notifications, so I have no idea about comments or reactions unless I actually go to the post itself. All I see are notifications about my friends’ posts. Further, while the news feed works fine, the list of notifications is limited to EXACTLY 20 notifications. When I scroll to the bottom, the page just jumps and doesn’t refresh to show any more than exactly 20. Maybe once a week I will scroll and be surprised to be able to scroll past 20, but it’s not because of anything I did or didn’t do. AND once I scroll back to the top of the list and scroll back down, I’m limited to 20 again. AND notifications for my posts still aren’t in the list. I have a brand new iPhone 6s Plus (3 months), so if Facebook doesn’t fix it soon, I am going to be convinced that the problems are a way to push people to upgrade their phones to the newest versions.
Getting worse instead of better
by CyndiB51 on 2018/01/27 16:23
I can see that rating the app makes no difference to the developers. The same problems I complained about last year still exist, and some pictures and GIFs never load. And now the notification that someone liked your post has to be clicked on to remove it from the notification list. So you end up having to go back to the post twice to remove the "like" notification and to read the comment they left. So useless. One thing these bad-to-worse updates are doing for me is helping me to break my FB addiction. 2017: The latest update (7/1) did nothing to make the slowness any better. I am spending less time on Facebook because of this crappy app. Clicking on a notification takes almost a minute to load, very aggravating. And please please bring back the option that allows us to choose not to see all our friends' likes. I had to hide several of my friends just because their likes flooded my newsfeed. The "I don't want to see this" option doesn't work for likes. Also, it randomly skips back to the top of the feed so that you lose your place when scrolling down. The people who update this app must never use it.
So unfair
by nah fah on 2018/12/14 02:52
So I’ve been using Facebook for 5 years now and I thought I liked it or loved it. Everyone seem to moved on to new social media while I’m still using Facebook on Facebook I have so much memories a picture of my grandma who had passed away a voice clips from her and I thought connected with family and a lot of my grandma voice clip are left in Facebook when she passed a few week ago before I sleep I play that clips but then one night everything changed about what I thought about Facebook there were this dude who sent me nude and I told him to leave me alone he wouldn’t at a time I didn’t thought if reporting him cause it didn’t come across my mind I was too tired and when it came across it was too late the dude reported me before I reported him and the Facebook sent me an email saying my Facebook permanently been disabled and all it comes across my mind was I didn’t do anything I sending many many replied back and today it came bad and said that that’s their last email for me and I was crying cause all my messages from my grandma the memories and her voice clips I cried and now I feel like it’s unfair I’ll never thought of hating Facebook but now I can’t say the same sadly.
Shutting down
by Amyncosolo on 2017/10/03 06:32
I don't know why but lately Facebook app has been shutting down and going to my main screen while I'm reading something😡very annoying!!! Fix this bug please! It also refreshes on its own. That's really annoying too when you are going through comments and then back out wanting to continue where you were before going to the comments and it decides on its own "nope you were done scrolling" 🙄 Nothing has been fixed. It still does all of the above even tho there's been tons of updates. Seriously fix this issue it's annoying! Stars went down bc it still hasn't been fixed STILL REFRESHES ON ITS OWN! When will this be fixed??? In the middle of reading something in Facebook and go to my internet for a second and then back to Facebook and it decides I was done and refreshes and sends me back to the top! Very annoying and j lose posts I was in the middle of reading. Why won’t you fix this issue. Many people have the same issue yet you don’t fix it!! Stars went down yet again bc it’s not fixed. One 1 star to go and honestly if I could give it a 0 star I would! Fix the freaking problem already!!!
Seriously?!?!?! By Highnessty
by CAQueen on 2018/12/19 18:55
First, a note 2 all of u who r bothered by the “privacy issue”. FB IS NOT PRIVATE! If u do not want 2 b seen online... DON’T. GO. ONLINE. I don’t trust people who want 2 hide. Seriously. I have no issue keeping it simple & transparent. If I was online & some1 asks whether I was or not I tell them the truth. Feels much better than getting caught in a lie. Facebook is not a place of privacy/peace. Period. U want privacy & peace? Turn off your computer, phone, tablet, or @ least turn off your WiFi & go read a book or watch a movie. & if u do not want it on FB, how about, oh, I dunno... NOT POSTING IT ON FB?!?! There’s a nu idea. Now, this 1 is directly 2 FB; stop “fixing” 💩that isn’t broken! Jesus Christ on crutches! Just STOP already! Every time I get used 2 the nu format u change it! Second, I am legally blind. WHY DID U SHRINK THE PRINT & squeeze a bunch of stuff on my homepage/feed?!?! Now it looks 2 busy, like a newspaper. I stay away from newspaper 4 that very reason. I was overjoyed when the very first 📱 came out bcuz I could read my news in large print. Now that purpose is defeated. People, stop complaining about your “privacy”. & FB, please. 4 the love of all that is holy, get the large print format back. PLEASE.
Posts not visible
by Catrophy2 on 2018/10/24 02:04
The latest update is a mess. The gifs are now shown in a different vertical format with the lowest ones not fully visible or clickable. Posts (your own and/or those of friends) are not showing up for hours to days. Some people can see them and comment while others see no post, only the comments. The app resets your privacy setting to default to showing your location so that FB can yet again bypass your own preference for PRIVACY and send you location-based ads and suggested events near you even though they PROMISED to respect your privacy from now on. DAYS have passed (close to a week) since the posts are not showing for everyone and no fix has yet been released. Worse, FB does not feel the need to tell you what’s in each update of the FB and Messenger apps so you have no idea whether you want to update it or not. Not to mention their selective censorship and removal of accounts they get political pressure to remove without offering any warning to the account holder or opportunity to save photos or posts before losing complete access. A very bad decision that is leading many loyal followers to leave FB.
Marketplace ratings.
by Westinian on 2018/07/03 01:11
I think the marketplace is probably the worst way to sell/buy things. Only because you can rate people without them actually buying anything. I found this out when someone rated me badly for no reason other then me telling him no that’s too low for an item he was trying to buy. It’s very unfair. Look at how other selling/buying apps do it. You CAN NOT rate anyone without them BUYING something first. But it’s “okay” because you’re just recommending the seller/buyer. But they can just hide there reviews so no one knows what you actually have. So there is no point in a rating system. And they can only rate you if you message back or they message you back. So if you try selling something and someone is just being mean they can go around messaging people after getting a reply then rate them badly. I know I’m not the only one who has this problem. But it is a BIG problem with the marketplace. It is very unfair and can impact seller and buyers. And personally I don’t think a social app should try to be a marketplace as well anyway. It kinda defeats the whole purpose of being sociable when the market place is full of people who just want to ruin your reputation.
Buggy
by imbeginningtohateapple on 2018/10/13 00:04
This app is very buggy and hasn’t been through enough testing. Thorough testing would show many bugs including not being able to see full photo sets from the Facebook feed without clicking on them one by one and then even when I click on the original post, it will only show me the preview photos and I am able to swipe through them (the first four or so), but not the rest. Secondly, there are menu issues that differ from the normal site which make it confusing and difficult to go to google for assistance in finding something. Lastly, to expand from the last point, some links are difficult to find. For example, an event I had just clicked “interested” on before leaving the page did not show up on the main events page. It took me searching the name of the event to find it when it could have been two clicks away. Efficiency is an issue with this app and it does have bugs, but I use it to avoid having to download messenger. I don’t use it often, but might start if they made it more user friendly (ha).
Does nothing but frustrate
by lilspiffy on 2018/12/11 06:31
The latest update makes every photo rotate to fit the screen no matter the orientation that’s locked on your device. The “most recent” page includes the most recent comments (seriously!?) and not just posts. So you have to scroll through posts from a month ago if a friend said “nice” on it today. The fact that you can’t turn off notifications for friend suggestions (Yes, suggestions!) finally had me turn off all notifications all together. Then it started notifying me anyway that a friend had commented on some random post to try to entice me into turning notifications back on. Really? You then notify me of something I do not want in order to convince me that notifications are great??... ugh. As if that weren’t enough, they created the “marketplace” and put the notification numbers on it. I hate those little numbers. This forces me to go to the marketplace tab to make it stop screaming little red numbers at me. Reddit gets it. Let us actually see what we want to see in the order in which it was received. If we don’t want to see political crap, let us block it and not the beloved family member who is driving you nuts with Trump posts.
So buggy
by JuliaK123 on 2018/05/07 17:15
I get I have an older iPhone with less storage, but 6 years of pictures taking up less space than this app? Really? I hate deleting and reinstalling, but why isn’t there another option? It consumes battery and memory like no other app. Also- what’s up with all the adds? I did the “see these people first” but instead I have to see a my post/rant regarding a traffic jam from 6 years ago and an add about some gel makeup or Walmart. I understand needing to make money via selling adds but there’s gotta be a better way of doing it. If every time I open the app for 2 weeks I’m presented with the same add- that eats up battery because it’s running music and video and my phone dies cuz it drained 7% of my battery in the process. How is that actually going to help sell the product? Maybe a small window on the side, so your friends posts- or at the very least “see first” can be seen first. Don’t make “go live” so easy to accidentally hit. Its constant and Im ready to throw my phone and run when it starts. How often does the avg person want to “go live”? Common sense: ease of accessibility should correlate to use.
Another update, another fail
by K_Dubbs77 on 2017/11/09 17:30
***I stick with my original review because it still very much holds true...and now after the latest “update”, any time you click on a post, all of the comments are blank. Get your act together fakebook Seriously, for all your pathetic attempts at updates that simply only erase negative comments, could you actually fix something in it. It's bad enough you ignore all of the comments you receive, but you make the app worse with every update. To the point now that my news feed is a cluttered mess with things you think I want to read, that repeat from days earlier, just now in an a more unappealing format. "Every update includes improvements for speed and reliability"...yea, not so much. There's nothing improved or faster, as usual per every update it's slower, worse, and buggier than the previous version...so how about finally addressing some of the issues this app has had for the past two plus years that the users continue to point out yet you developers continue to ignore, instead of adding pointless features that nobody cares about anyway. The one star rating I'm forced to give this is way beyond more than it deserves.
Enough with refreshing the newsfeed!
by Kristycake on 2017/11/06 15:58
I never write reviews, but these recent updates make me want to delete Facebook. 6 months ago, if I needed to pause my Facebook scrolling go do something else, I would just click someone’s picture and it would “hold my place” in my newsfeed. This was great. I’m a mom to a toddler and I oftentimes have to multitask. NOW, if I switch to a different app or put my phone down for 10 SECONDS to do something else, my newsfeed refreshes, and starts at the top. This is infuriating when I’m in the middle of reading an article or looking at an album of pictures. What is the purpose of this? Who is it benefitting? Certainly not your users. I find myself getting on Facebook less and less these past few weeks because I get more annoyance than enjoyment out of it. Do you not do any kind of market research before you implement these things? And please, get rid of the camera. Everyone and their brother has a camera on their phone. I think we’re set! I’m tired of swiping left to exit a post and accidentally hitting the camera which takes 10 seconds to load. I can’t imagine what your UI/QA teams get paid to “ok” these poorly planned “enhancements”.

by #1Beyoncefan on 2018/11/16 09:05
I used to love this app because I never had a flaw with it, but in the past year, with all the updates I keep having issues with laying videos on my phone. I have an iPhone XS Max on AT&T and I never have any issues loading video or media on any other app. But for some reason now I always have problems when I’m watching videos. I mostly watch videos on Facebook so it’s quite annoying that I have to kill the app EVERY time I open it. When I try to watch a video it will load the first ten seconds and will stop. When I press play it will play the last second and stop at the same exact time. After a few tries of playing it, the message “Unable to play video. Check the strength of your connection and try again.” Comes up on the screen. Then I’m forced to scrub at least 10-15 seconds more into the video last that point, while missing vital information of the video. And then it happens again at a different time in the video! Soooo annoying. Every time I use Facebook this happens. No matter what update it is. And I know it’s the app because I used to have the regular iPhone X and it used to do it on that phone to! FACEBOOK HAS GONE DOWNHILL.
Unwanted sounds. Huge unusable app.
by TamaraMonkey on 2018/09/05 22:03
I kept hoping Facebook would stop switching in app sounds back on and that they would also do away with trying to force me to create a passcode, but the undoing of my preferences by the app has become relentless. I have to switch off the app sounds daily. It’s obnoxious! I never wanted them in the first place. How many times will I have to inform the app that I want the sounds shut off for good? It is unpleasant to hear cheesy clicking and clacking sounds as you simply move from post to post on Facebook. Horrible idea. It’s not only that. This is the largest most bloated battery sucking app there is. It bogs down my phone. What others have said about the updates consuming all of their storage is absolutely true. I wasn’t going to write a negative review even for the constant unnecessary toggling on of the app sounds, but every time there’s an update for this app there is no room for it on my phone. I have almost nothing on my phone. How is this app mobile friendly in any way? It’s a behemoth. I’m going to collect my personal photos and documents from it and delete it. I’ll happily find other places to socialize on the Internet. Sorry.
Facebook Messenger
by changemessenger on 2018/10/12 05:51
Please find a way not to show all your friends when you’re on FB. I sometimes like to zone out on FB just to pass the night. It is very very annoying to receive pop-ups in the wee small hours of the night from people (most often men) whom I barely know. There are no boundaries on Messenger. What I mean by this is that anyone can Message or even call anyone else whether they are friends or not. I have been harassed and annoyed in this manner also by a man who was drunk and didn’t want to take no for an answer in the middle of the night, calling on Messenger over and over again. I had to threaten to call police. How did he know I was awake and alone? Messenger! It can also bring up trust issues with people in relationships who don’t know if their significant other is live chatting with a side piece or playing FarmVille in the wee small hours of the night. I’m a private person who likes to keep my business to myself. Find a way, please, to let the user decide whether or not they want to let anyone or no one pop up and interrupt their lives with Messenger. I regularly install and then uninstall, when it could just be so easy to fix it. Please do.
Nothing loads anymore
by cevans172 on 2018/08/18 11:35
I’ve been a faithful Facebook user for years. It is my go to social media platform and I love it. However for the last couple months I’ve noticed it won’t load random things. Images, comments, and video will stop loading if I’ve been scrolling for a minute or two. Sometimes I’ll be just hopping on and comments won’t load for something. It doesn’t matter if I’m on WiFi or data. I’ve even gone as far as to uninstall it and reinstall it twice this week, which worked for that night and stopped the next day. I never used to have this problem until after I got the iPhone X. My husband just switched phones to the iPhone X like me (got mine on Mother’s Day) and now he experiences it too, and we have friends who say they noticed it as well on this phone but when they switched phones, it was all good. Is there possibly a compatibility flaw between Facebook and the new iPhone? I hate not being able to use it like I used to. Hopefully this can be fixed so we can keep using it.
