Still the same crappy app

1) default most recent posts 2) let me access messenger through the Facebook app not the "I will never EVER download" messenger app
Space Required
by JasmineKanin on 2015/06/03 05:11
Why does this app require so much space!?
I feel like the app gets worse each update
by Manicsubsidal01 on 2015/06/03 05:06
Today alone my diagnostic log shows Facebook exceeded the memory usage 89 times. The kicker is I wasn't using the app at all today. Not once. For even a moment. Facebook is also set to not use cellular and background app refresh is off. That being said, according to my battery usage, 33% is Facebook (background) How is it that an app in not using and isn't supposed to run in the background is using a third of my power consumption.
Crashes constantly.

Confused
by IG @_acmedina on 2015/06/03 03:50
I'm noticing that when I'm listening to music and browsing through my newsfeed on Facebook, my music would stop.. I thought nothing of it so I would just replay my music and browse through my newsfeed more.. The more I kept scrolling the more my music would pause and it's really annoying It only does it with the Facebook app.. I don't know if it's my iPhone or some bug..

Needs fixed!
by Littlechief79 on 2015/06/03 03:11
I'm being asked to log into the mobile app for iPhone. My username (email) is already filled in and when I enter my password a msg pops up that reads "there was a slight misspelling of my email and it has been corrected. Please re enter your password for security." When I re enter it the msg pops up again and again and again. I reset my password and doubled checked my username. Both are correct but I continue to get the msg. I can log into Facebook on my mobile browser just not the app.

Facebook scans private mailboxes for 'friends'
by NicknSF on 2015/06/03 02:03
When the push messages started appearing a few weeks ago, 'Do you know?' so and so...from confidential work mail..from 1 year ago. Class action suit would be appropriate. Alas, there are no privacy settings on your iPhone that Facebook has any respect for.
Fix this stuff
by Katisueisme on 2015/06/03 00:47
bring back the old share! and when I paste a link it should show a thumb clip.. the new version doesn't do that. also I should be able to share a link/thumb clip with a picture. can I please check my messages without messenger. I don't need the bubbles or anything, just let me old fashioned style check my messages.
New features needed
by Soccerfan1991 on 2015/06/03 00:46
This app really needs figertrip log in/ everytime we open the app. We really need privacy and we really need it! Please add that feauture!
Never works!!! Worthless after last update!!!
by MikPJon88 on 2015/06/03 00:40
After the last update my Facebook never works it is always saying "no stories to show" or network error either when on wifi or off of wifi. I have tried deleting and reinstalling with no improvement! This is a worthless app until Facebook comes up with a solution!

Still hate this app
by Soccertaxi on 2015/06/02 23:57
What is up with Facebook? Pretty lame app that won't utilize the rotate to landscape feature. How long has the iPhone been out? Every time I open this app my mantra? "I hate this app". Well FB is consistent with stupidity. Now they have taken away preference for recent posts viewing and I see I am not the only one with this preference. I use this app less and less. One of these days I will just delete.
Crashing playing videos
by Isolated_93 on 2015/06/02 23:31
I dont know what's really going on but you all need to improve more of this app to make it better
Annoying app
by James McGuire on 2015/06/02 23:28
invades privacy. they constantly make you download updates to wipe the bad ratings off the app store. Expect to have to update it every other day...

WolfDreamer5
by WolfDreamer5 on 2015/06/02 22:58
The newest update is horrible. As you try to scroll through the news feed, it jumps back up to the top, often times in the middle of reading a post. Good luck trying to find it again!! I'm seeing less and less of my friends posts and more posts of groups that I should join, people I may know and ads for things I have no interest in.
Fix Facebook app
by Alicia623a on 2015/06/02 21:22
Facebook have a lot of bugs that need to be fix. For starters on iphone it's always shutting out of the app by itself and when it's not it's always saying no network connection.
Same news feeds 2/3 times in a row
by Better4droid on 2015/06/02 21:00
So I'll see a status then within seconds see it again, then it happens again and again. Not a big deal I guess but everyday? Not a 5 star app
Well

Since the latest update every time i start a video the app force closes.

Facebook fails
by Shadowblastg on 2015/06/02 18:51
I have just gotten a new account on facebook. I had my phone connected to facebook so just in case of secruity i could text them back the confirmation code. But this has happened for 3 times so far! In 2 days! Now they had given me another one of that random word that i have to spell out correctly. I messed up once! Just ONCE and they block me on facebook without even texting me. They just poof do it! So now im blocked from talking in a group,liking and commenting! Even friend requesting! I am getting tired of this facebook! Ive been blocked now for 30 hours or 30 days!
Why so slow

Searching....

App crashes every time I try to watch a video or post anything
Mr.
by Michael Kittel on 2015/06/02 12:17
For such a widely used form of social media with a public worth that is staggeringly large, it amazes me how obvious it is that almost NO work has been put into the iPad app. Out of the dozens of apps that I use on a daily basis this one is the only one that crashes on an almost hourly basis. Yes, it is worth it as it's the only way to access your Facebook on an iPad, but if there were another I would download it in a second.
Terrible
by Ken36295 on 2015/06/02 11:24
Most of the time the posts and pages wont load. And forget skipping though a video, because if you do the app freezes.
Where is the notes?
by Elinwiji on 2015/06/02 11:06

SPYBOOK
by John C. Toasten on 2015/06/02 09:22
**update**Still spying. Still not telling you what's in the updates. Ask yourself: Why would a company continually change their app and never tell their user why or what has changed? Because their spying on you, that's why. They're sucking up everything they can about your family and friends and selling it to advertisers. Yet another shady update that adds more spying - Guaranteed. Why else would they not tell you what's in the update? Because it's bad. That's why. More undisclosed nonsense - without a doubt.
Videos don't okay
by Sayuri h. on 2015/06/02 09:00
And suddenly after the update, I can't watch videos anymore? When I click on them, they don't respond at all.

The app keeps refreshing itself in the middle of me scrolling down. Please fix this.
Can no longer download previous version to fix crashes
by GigaRat on 2015/06/02 06:35
Until today, when the app began it's cycle of incessant crashes, I used to be able to delete it and re-download the latest version that was compatible with my older iPhone to get it functioning again. Now it's trying to force me to update to an iOS that will slow my phone down something obscene, and I can no longer download the previously compatible version. I'm not jumping out of my chair to go buy a brand new phone that can run iOS 7 without slowing it down. And unless I can download the last compatible version until it starts it's temperamental crashing again, I guess the app will remain off of my phone. There's more than one way to skin a cat, just stick to the web for fewer crashes and less irritation. Forcing users to update when they don't need or want to is beyond obnoxious. Let us use the last compatible version again, and as long as it's stable, I'll be happy to revisit an updated review.
Phishy
by OMGITSTHATONEGUY on 2015/06/02 06:12
I don't even do the updates anymore. They never tell you what's actually being updated. Most people would like to know, instead of just installing something they may not want. Some of the updates I've passed up recently people talk of crashes too. Until I read of actual improvement that helps me, I'm not updating.
Stop changing things that work...
by CaliMichele on 2015/06/02 05:16
and fix things that don't. The new drop down pop up when a friend posts is annoying and unnecessary. The 5,000 friend limit is ridiculous if you play games (which you encourage), are a writer, a traveller, or someone who just likes meeting new people. One of the worst things is seeing yesterday's posts in the newsfeed, seriously. Why can't we see the most current posts first. Your app is tanking as fast as FB is.
Nothing bad to say

I'm not sure if I'm the only one having this problem, but when I try to post a status with emojis, they don't show up. I have to end up editing the post. Please fix

by Funk memo on 2015/06/02 03:45
The likes disappear after you like a posts, the comments disappear and has been happening for months , the videos don't play so I have to restart the app because it freezes the whole thing, also when you make a status it types it really slow! Please come out with a new update to fix these bugs

Who's giving this app good rating?
by HART-OF-SWARM on 2015/06/02 03:39
You know the constant updates are to hide user dissatisfactions. Horrible app. Front end is weak, backend is creepy. The FB employee reading this knows what I'm talking about.
Bad Update!
by Fairichi on 2015/06/02 03:13
This update is just plain bad. The app keep freezing up and making my phone hot.
Very slow
by Zuly_barrera on 2015/06/02 03:02
It's just not the same anymore, it's becoming very lousy and slow and I know it's not my internet because all my other social media works perfectly fine. Facebook is just very lousy and slow and not properly working. I am disappointed.
Ok, but needs more features.
by Melross84 on 2015/06/02 02:09
The app is fine, but it still shuts down periodically or freezes. The biggest problems are with groups. You can't add to the docs or search the group for past conversations like you can when you use a computer. Since most people use Facebook on their mobile device more often than a PC a lot of time time, it would be more convenient to have these features. You also need an option to delete multiple friends and open links without it crashing.
Video playback is bad
by Scilla500 on 2015/06/02 02:04
The video does not center when tapped to play. It is moved to the top when being played and the play pause button symbol interferes with video image play back on screen. Playback also causes problems with swiping to enlarge screen and exiting, since the symbols are white which are invisible on white video screen. It is not very user friendly for IPhone. The continuous playthroughs to related content is extremely inconvenient. Button symbol sizes should be reconsidered. Whole video layout needs to be redesigned to make the main video that is currently played-- more prominent. overall 2.

by NewToApples on 2015/06/02 01:03
Highly disappointed! Have you ever been scrolling down the 1500 post on ur page and this stupid app crashes or closes so then you have to start anew from the very beginning? Well it happens all to often and it is quite annoying! This app is far too unstable!! It has improved but I do not like, no I hate the fact this stupid app always starts from the top of the page in your timeline. I want to open the app and no matter what I want to pick up right where I left off. Not start at the top and have to fight with it to try to find where I was scrolling through. I want it to leave me the hell alone. So that I can read everything or scroll through what I want to see. The app should not get to choose where I start when I come back!!!
Well...
by Liz776634 on 2015/06/02 00:23
I love Facebook. But some problems I've been having is it automatically wants to go to the top of my feed when I'm in the process of reading something. I saw something that I agree with that we should be able to choose the percentage of posts we see from each page. A bug I've noticed is all my other apps seem to connect to the Internet with no problems yet Facebook I'm constantly getting a network error notification and it won't play some videos due to connection issues. But everything else seems fine. I'd like if these problems get fixed. Also I feel like the consistent need for updates with this app causes more problems and bugs than it solves. If it's fixed, don't try to fix it until you break it
Annoying
by Ellaeros on 2015/06/01 23:56
The app was working perfect until the recent update. Every time I'm reading an article within the app, it'll boot me out. Very annoying
Slow and crashes
by Lancealottt on 2015/06/01 23:56
Slow to respond and load. Gets good then bad quickly! Whoever is in charge of these updates needs to be fired! All it does is crash when I load the app or anything from the app. It's so weird that such a large company can't even master stability of an app
Show Most Recent
by jc18750 on 2015/06/01 23:43
Why do I have to change the news feed display from Top Stories to Most Recent practically every time I open the app? Why can't it remember my preference??? There are dozens of similar complaints in the reviews. Why isn't Facebook listening?
Favorites list "Chat On" side bar on mobile
by dianebobby on 2015/06/01 23:34
I'm trying to make my favorites list where I turn on my Chat On, so I can always have them there. For some reason lately it doesn't allow me to put my favorites in a favorite category. & in the past when I did have it, it would always change up the people. It's very annoying!! Fix that please!!!!! I want to be able to open my mobile app & when I slide my screen from right to left & see the people who are online or off.....I want to keep the same people on my list without anything changing. It's SOOOO ANNOYING!!!!! Fix that soon please!!!!!!!!
Unhappy
by Hoosiergal77 on 2015/06/01 23:29
Facebook's latest update has taken away the option of "most recent" for my newsfeed and I am UNHAPPY!! Now I am stuck seeing news that is hours and even days old! Not cool, Facebook, not cool.
Burying "recent posts" deeper and deeper. Terrible.
by English777777 on 2015/06/01 23:04
The big elephant in the room, that Facebook is patently ignoring, is that users simply want to see what their friends have posted, in the order that they posted it. For years. Facebook has been burying this option deeper and deeper, so that they force users to see their "top posts" version, i.e., the version in which THEY decide what you get to see, and in what order, according to their best interests and bottom line. When I opened this new, pointless version, I thought they had finally removed the "recent posts" option entirely, and was on my way to uninstall it. Another reviewer here kindly pointed out that it is still available, albeit buried one more level deeper. I'll go see if it's now three clicks away. If it is, I'll be uninstalling. Twitter has never been so appealing. (Update) well, today, I opened the app to find that they seem to have finally removed "most recent" ability. I will now be uninstalling. Facebook, you don't get to force-feed me whatever YOU decide I should see. Your arrogance is astounding. Bye bye.

Leave Well enough Alone
by Sketchbookbt on 2015/06/01 21:54
It seems like everything works the way it should and the developers have Togo and create a new update to screw us all over every time we manage to finally get comfortable with the old one. Now the app freezes all the time and crashes my iPad and I have to turn it off and back on regularly. I've tried deleting and reloading the FB app twice and am sick of it. The app worked just fine before the last update and now I tell my friends and family to just log into their account to through the regular internet browser instead. Leave well enough alone, guys. These updates are wholly unnecessary.

Just ridiculous
by jdm_ist on 2015/06/01 19:40
Every single video I ever try to watch at one point drops the volume all the way down then sloooowly fades back up. Also what's the point of even having a button to log out if it never fully logs you out? Fix that!

Why!!
by 1Sassin on 2015/06/01 17:43
I really enjoy using Facebook to see and talk to my friends and family that I haven't seen in a while, but on the iPhone when you syncing your photos you can not add them to your time line... Now how unimportant can a syncing photo can be those unforgettable moments that cannot be shared unless you download them again to your phone that's already full... (iPhone mistake)!! Fixit please......

App open
by Ldlucucjv on 2015/06/01 15:40
You should probably fix the stupid this that happens when you listen to music and open the app. I would be listening to music and when I open the app some times my music volume will get lower. Then I have to refresh the app to get my music back to normal.. It's annoying
Change log?
by __b on 2015/06/01 15:32
Every good software company puts detailed change information when they update their software. End-users want to know BEFORE updating what features are added/tweaked/removed. Why does Facebook think this is beneath them?

CRASH AND BURN! AGAIN!
by The Blonde Cookie on 2015/06/01 14:48
(Second revision of this review). Just bought an iPhone 6+, with IOS 8.3. I had been using an iPhone 4, and just dealing with crappy performance, figuring that since I had an old iPhone, that explained it. Before it froze up on me, and I had to reboot it a couple of times to work THAT out. Now it CRASHES on me. I'm adding to this review, which I previously sent, because it's STILL the same, obnoxious performance. And it's getting old, I'm (already) using Facebook a lot less than I used to. And searching out apps, AND web sites, that are more responsive to their users. Notification counter (looking from outside the app) is seriously MESSED UP - like by 20 notifications, sometimes MORE (it'll say I have 50-some notifications, and I only might have 20-some). Also, making edits to a post AFTER you have posted it is VERY obnoxious - getting it to STAY at the place you want it to, so you can get the cursor where you need to get it is SERIOUSLY ridiculous. You might consider copying the post, deleting it and posting it again (and make the change PRIOR to posting it - it's THAT level of STUPID). Also, the notifications might originally show, but as soon as I start going through them, they might (or might not, and I haven't figured out WHAT makes the difference) go away (meaning they look as though you've clicked through them). Which means you have to go through ALL of them AGAIN - top to bottom. And whatever IDIOT changed the notifications such that it now goes to "more notifications" (and you have to go to the "inside" section EVERY TIME, after EVERY notification, to see the rest of them - particularly if you're like me, and don't bother getting online as much anymore) - PLEASE cut that person's hands off! WHAT a SERIOUS pain! 😁🔫 So I guess my big question is this - WHO ARE YOU FOLKS DESIGNING THIS APP FOR? It freezes on the low end (iPhone 4, IOS 7.1 or something like that), and crashes on the high end (iPhone 6+ IOS 8.3). - HUH??? WHAT'S UP, FACEBOOK? At some point, folks are gonna say (if they aren't already), "the heck with this - it ain't really THAT much fun" (versus all the associated aggrevationS). And take their balls and go play elsewhere. You've been riding the tide…for now. But something else will come along. It always does. I've been online since '96. This is just ~another~ chat room, after all. People might get tired of it ~sooner~ than later. Like me. I don't spend NEARLY the time on it as I used to - WHY BOTHER? It's just aggravating. How does that translate into lost revenue? I'm guessing y'all are already feeling the crunch. It started out as a great idea. But I'll bet the numbers aren't as wonderful as they were even a year ago. I wonder why…
Changing Facebook profile name

Should have the ability to change my profile name whenever I want instead of waiting 60 days..!!! **Enable users to add characters/emojis to profile name!
So much better but....
by Colorado5533 on 2012/10/03 00:45
This update makes it SO much better. It is much faster than it used to be and crashes so much less often. It's only happened twice as compared to every single time I got on. It loads the news feed and people's pages quickly, and makes my post quickly without crashing as well. So all in all its pretty good. However, I can't change my profile or cover pictures, can't make a new album, I'd like to be able to customize more. Like who can see post or pics. Like you can on a computer, so only specific people can see it. Sometimes when I delete a post it still shows up in the news feed but when I click on it it says you can't find it. There is no share button and no way to save pics to your library anymore like there used to be so how am I supposed to share a pic or link with my friends. I can't delete a post directly from the news feed, I have to go to my page and do it, so it's just an extra silly step. And as I said before it doesn't actually delete it. And then it doesn't refresh. I pull it down to do so and it doesn't. I noticed because the time from people's posts have not changed. I've had to log out completely and re put in my password, which is long, I don't know If I'm the only one who has these little problems but overall this is much better than the previous version and is good to find friends and pages and see pictures and posts as well as make your own. I just can't customize anything or do much else than see what's going on with friends.
Facebook
by Lisadianeengels on 2013/07/15 13:51
I love the fact that I can keep in touch with friends all over the world. Lots of good stuff. I don't like that I can't take pictures off that I'm in if posted by someone else. I also have been spammed by people getting my info. The privacy settings need to be adjusted to accommodate to give permission for photos not approved by me or individual when posted on someone else's wall, etc. the events page says past but doesn't show past birthdays so I miss many birthdays by a day sometimes. Needs that function. Also when someone unfriends you, reasons should be posted... For understanding what happened. Facebook on IPhone shuts down many times when in the middle of something. Thats all for now. I absolutely love Facebook. This is how I keep in touch with my kids as well as friends. I love Facebook but there are many glitches. One when using my IPhone, which is where I use Facebook mostly, the instant text messages pull up my group but does not show the recent messages so I have been unable to be an active participant in my group. I am very frustrated with this because I am missing out in the conversations. I do love being able to keep posted in friends and family. I do not like the businesses in my Facebook. nor the likes I post so my friends see that I am reading their posts, I did not want my other friends to see my likes. That is my business not theirs. Makes me not want to use Facebook or post a like. I would like to make some of people's posts private.
Let 'me have it.

FaceBook? what a piece of cr......eative genius. There has never been an entity in World History that has captured global attention, curiosity, excitement and wonderment that is truly awe inspiring. There should be Rating button - how much do you enjoy FaceBook at this instance in time? "Hey what do you think?" Or "what are you doing?" Can now be answered according to the amount of courage and hutzpa you possess. In a way it Is the ultimate test of strength to the degree of loyalty you have regarding your religion and politics, the two topics which may get you banned or a following in the millions. Tempering one's remarks and enthusiasm again is how daring are you. Never-the-less it is the best instrument to see "what make's .you tick?" Those who want to be heard now can be. Facebook doesn't discriminate against social status, the most sad, most down, most lonely person in the world now can express what ever they want and have an equal chance as anyone to have it read. Many of us just wasn't our placed in the world to be noticed and respected. ThanK You FaceBook creators, you have given the world a remarkable cosmic string go use for the betterment of all. Sometimes only the right words have to be written to changes mind world Peace I wish one day all the people of the world can agree on what that means. If not being able to agree about it then at least being able to discuss it. Yea FaceBook you.'really ok in my little corner of the world
Great but one problem
by B'g Buy'r on 2009/09/02 03:21
I dowloaded the update the minute it came out. I was hoping for the landscape mode which I sorta got. When I'm in chat for instance in landscape mode and I want to swich to my news feed I go to the menu and it is in portrait. I was like okay... So I click news feed still holding my phone in landscape and it enters news feed in portrait and I have to wait a bit for the program to register the position of my phone and it changes. It isn't consistant without the whole program. Another thing I was hoping for was push notifications especially in the chat feature and for notifications and messages. I haven't seen that yet... A couple last things were facebook video capability and chat "errors". 1. Why show their are videos and a play button when you can't view them be cause they aren't compatible yet with the iPhones and iPod touches? 2. When sending chats and staying in the same place (not in the car and no change in serivice) I frequently get a message saying cannot send messages at this time and yet my friend is still messaging me. Resulting in having to close the program and opening it again. (which doesn't always work) despite these few problems I think that this application is a HUGE improvment in the previous version and if they fix these few problems I think we will have a perfect facebook app. There is "one last thing" as a Steve jobs would say, facebook is a lot more useful than Twitter. Twitter isn't worth your time!!
Long review and my solution to login issues
by TheRealBenji_IpodTouch on 2008/10/05 03:15
After the launch of facebooks first app I became very dissapointed with their lack of ingenuity, after flaunting with the idea of just closing my facebook account I decided to wait until the magic little 1 appeared on my app store icon for the update. Now after avoiding the little f button at the bottom of my screen for so long I'm happy to say I downloaded facebook app2 (at school, with their ultra-slow wifi) in hardly any time at all. Then I turned opened it and... It wouldn't login. Dissapointed, I figured it was because I was on campus, and hardly any of the schools I've been to allow access to myspace or facebook so no surprises there (who else resents having their devices limited by a fat techy in a chair?) anyway, after finding the same problem in by room I concluded that the site was busy and found I could login on my moms iPod Touch running 1.1.4 and the original app. I then preceded to turn off my iPod, turn it back on, and sync it to my laptop. Now it works just fine, and as my friends and I rarely turn our iPods off I think this may be the solution to others problems. Now the app works I have yet to come across a feature from the internet version (well at least on that is stupid) that is missing. Uploading, tagging, commenting, messanging and chatting are way easier than they ever were on the computer version. If you really want to know what the app is like, just download it. It's free so you have nothing to lose.
havent had much issues with it but..
by Clenzer1235 on 2012/01/15 04:46
ill have to say i dont understand what these ppl are talking about its been running fine for me and i havent had any complaints except a couple. When you go to someone pictures and view the comments on their picture then scroll to another picture u lose the ability to look at other peoples comments. That and this app needs to support ppl with other versions of facebook on here cause ive been chatting with people that are obviously online but it doesnt show them being online. It might not be the updates fault and might be a feature that i dont know about but it sure is annoying. In past versions my close friends tab has disappeared on me that was annoying dont know why that happen :/ . Also if you could make it to where we could play most of the games you offer that i can only play on my desktop that would be great but i know that requires flash :( . Alternatively you could make seperate apps for each of the major games ppl play on facebook so that we can login using our facebook login info and play our games anywhere we want. Also when i upload more than one picture to my account my friends only see 1 picture and not three at a time like others i have seen. I dont know if theres an option i need to turn on or if im doing something wrong but it is very annoying. You fix those things and honestly I wouldnt have really anything else to complain about. Im sure there are prolly more things that i am missing but i havent come across any
Version 3.4
by Zylluh on 2011/04/18 22:19
This update is terrible the app is very laggy and it crashes frequently. The notifications are also terrible I will be sitting on my couch watching tv and I will hear the ring and it says I have a wall post or other thing but it was from like ten or even a half-hour ago. Either that happens or you don't even get a notification. For example if friends comment on your status it sometimes won't show up. This update is also missing a TON of things that they could incorporate into the app. First of all they need push notifications for the chat instead of just the noise. The noise only happens when you are in the app and your Iphone/Touch is at the lock screen. They also need to add the ability to tag people in statuses. Oh there is also one more bug I forgot to mention. The app doesn't let you post pictures. Once they add these features and fix these bugs they need to do some other stuff. I've only had my iPod for about 2 years and I am going to update to the iPod touch 5g when it comes out but the app needs a new design. They need to make it like widgets and have sliding features. If you slide left it brings you to the news feed and if you slide left then it brings you to chat and have a pull down menu for other things. The only thing that could be left alone is the notifications bar. Once they fix these bugs and add those features/layouts the app will be perfect. P.S. I doubt the new layout will happen due to the fact it would basically kill the app with crashes.

Put back the change the timeline picture on iOS devices change cover photo on iOS back I can't log in I see my post on my wall but not on my stream I wish I can change my cover photo to the app Can you add and change timeline cover photos How do I change my cover photo on my iOS device? Adelante Adam and the app say what you were doing please It's not working on the app idea what you're right what you're doing Nothing is showing up on my newsfeed what's happening Underbite see what you doing at in the category for celebrities and on the pages today like the app crashes when I try to push timeline Adding the app say what you doing Write what you adumbrate what you are doing on the app like listening to drinking watching a movie or TV show eating and how are you feeling that would be awesome Under listening to Adanon automatically from your iPod library that would be cool I'm girl are listening to Adam and a microphone icon and what people are listening to under watching at in the camera feature to scan what people are watching on TV and movies and celebrities and Adam and topics under Schlitter you say what you're doing automatically under listening to watching beating you eating and playing automatically add those activities in from different apps that are requiring you to sign into Facebook that would be I can't download the update on my iPod touch cool and easier
After resisting updating the app for a while...
by bphing on 2013/07/30 18:04
..I finally caved. Seeing far fewer "sponsored" posts now is quite nice, but this update has reintroduced a baffling insistence on switching my news feed back to "Top Stories" mode every time I've been away from it more than a few hours. I don't know about you, but I will NEVER want to read posts in anything other than chronological order (aka "Most Recent"). So, that's pretty irritating and knocks off a star. However, I haven't had problems with crashing, and I appreciate the new "Copy Link" ability when viewing a web page in the app. Sometimes I can also copy a post for quoting purposes (but not always, which puzzles me). This is marginally helpful compared to the desired option: the ability to highlight portions of posted text for Copy/Define. New photo posting options are also more convenient and have some occasionally-useful filters. Haven't quite figured out yet if I can choose albums for them straight from my phone, which would be good. Overall, more functional than it used to be, and could be improved with a few more ease-of-use tweaks and the removal of that silly round, floating Messages icon which you have to drag to hide. (Its tiny collage of participant userpics doesn't help at all to identify the current message if you have multiple similar group messages going, and we already have an unobtrusive Messages icon in the top bar which doesn't need to be swatted out of the way like a fly after every use.)
Hmmm, what do I think of the FB app?
by -Misfit75- on 2013/06/05 18:49
Well, for the most part it's ok. It can be very useful to have it right on your phone and not have to use my phones browser. But I have problems with the messaging function! As I scroll to read longer messages the text disappears and reappears at will! It makes reading longer messages rather difficult! And when I tap a picture to get it to bring it up full screen it sometimes comes up quickly but other times it takes a long time! Sometimes so long that I have to close the app, reboot and restart it. So, what do I think? I think that FB is such a popular social network with so many employees that is now a publicly traded company and makes so much money that they really could do a better job with app development! And this new deal where it is setting goals for you, like "Adding 5 friends", and constantly pressuring you to list more information about yourself needs to go!!! I can set my own goals for what I want my page to be, I'm a grown man! And I can decide what information I want to share, again I'm a grown man! I'm sure they want you to add as much personal information as possible so they can sell it or target you for advertisements!!! And all this recommending pages or people I may know right there at the top of my timeline and news feed needs to go too !!! I don't want to see what you think I should do! I want to see what I added to my page!!! There! That's what I think about FB!!! HAPPY NOW?????!
Present review of FB
by Photo Crazy1 on 2014/12/04 09:44
Great way of reuniting and keeping in touch with friends and relatives. Do not need posts on news page of all the comments and likes of my friends' friends. Leads me to believe that a lot of privacy has been lost. Also too commercial now with all the ads inserted in main part. Also we used to be able to easily hide posts from friends without defriending permanently. In trying to find important posts from friends now it is much too time consuming to scroll past all the garbage. Used to love checking FB a couple times a day. Find myself looking at it less and less and much more discreet in personal comments. My comments haven't changed much. I do find when using phone or iPad app I have difficulty getting to settings to eliminate having their comments or likes of friends appear on my page. Ditto what I recently wrote. Since upgrading this app in Oct 2014, it has gone further downhill. When wanting to add a pic, I used to be able to go to an album in iPhoto, but now I can't. In other words, I would keep all the cute pics for birthdays in one album. Now I have to hunt for a picture. Also, there are ads covering up parts of articles and have trouble closing the ad so I can read the article. Some comments stay the same. Nice to have FB in phone especially when out or traveling. Don't like ads which are hard to close covering up articles. I'm one that is not interested and fast forward TV to skip commercials.
Let Freedom Ring! ...or shut it down.
by DEA3872 on 2013/02/14 15:00
You asked for a review so don't get mad if your chastised. There have been too many instances where people and friends have mentioned how some of their posts were deleted or just vanished because of their political context. I myself recently had a comment just disappear after posting it. It is becoming more and more apparent that certain political expression is discouraged through censorship. If this be the case, I expect you to be the ultimate example by staying clear of Freedom of Speech & Expression or when you suppress one, you do so for both major party's. Either We The People have the Right to Free Speech or Facebook becomes a "Big Brother", just another leftist media controlling platform deciding what people can or can not post about OUR elected officials or you become the frontrunner, ahead of EVERY News Source by staying clear of We The People and allow us to expose ALL the corruption and injustice that has gripped our great Nation! Facebook should encourage people to question and speak up about OUR government. After all it is our Duty as Americans to do so! But over all, of course I greatly like Facebook. It's an awesome social network, just as long as Facebook stays out of We The People's Right to express our likes and dislikes about how OUR elected officials, on both sides, are or are not doing the Will of the People! Thanks!

I really wish I could give the 5 Star Rating I used to think Facebook deserved! I do love the opportunities of connecting so many different people. To connect with my daughters in other countries is really nice, too. You can put family all together. But, OH, it's a big BUT! But too many things go wrong too often. The 3 that really bother me are reading a friend or family members Post, type out an answer---touch to Post------it DISAPPEARS! Where? I dunno. In the middle of reading, texting, anything, and it Drops me back to my APP Start Up. ???? I dunno. But the most frustrating, disappointing, irritating is when I open Facebook, reach to touch & open for a response, and it flips away before or just as I touch, and its an hour before I find it again! If I keep trying to. If I wait I may not. Today I opened Facebook, to my News Feed automatically, a beautiful child's face was smiling with her new hair style to start the school year. It flipped away. I don't know why or where. Or when I will see the pictures of a middle school granddaughter that only said my daughters name and she had posted 2 new photos. I think I need to just text or message and request that she do them over. I had waited on seeing those. In anticipation. I'm not mad. Or angry. I might have been a little irritated. But I know that I will get them again. Just a disappointed grandma. Now, you don't have to publish this. Just read it and see if you can fix it. Thank you.
Has room for improvement.
by Jesus Christ of Nazareth on 2012/03/23 05:08
Okay so first of all, facebook's mobile iOS app has improved over the years. Overall, I do enjoy using the mobile application as it runs fairly smoothly and does not usually have trouble updating me on what my friends are up to. However, there are several flaws that make this app a pain to use sometimes. The biggest annoyance I have with the application is its chat function. The chat itself runs pretty good. when I minimize my chat to scroll through the news feed, I get a message notification when my friend sends me a message through chat. When I open up my chat box to reply, the red message notification does not go away even after I have replied to their message which I find annoying. I have to go and tap the message notification icon and physically open the message I got the notification from to make the notification to away. That is the biggest issue I have with the app. Along with the chat notification issue, I also find it annoying that the notifications will fail to update you to your latest notifications if you leave your iPad in hibernation for a few hours. I had to completely close and relaunch Facebook in order to get up to date notifications on my iPad. Aside from that, the application works pretty well for me. I hope they update their photo gallery soon as they have done for their browser site as the images now look awful on the new iPad. Also, the icon is still pixilated on the new iPad, please update soon!!
Why can we still not tag?
by M Abercrombie on 2012/06/16 23:58
First, let me state that this app isn't bad. For the most part it gets the job done and it's much less cumbersome than trying to use the "mobile browser" version of Facebook. However, when I'm on a computer in a web browser I can hit the @ symbol while writing a post and tag a person/business so that their name shows up as a link to their profile/page. This is a highly useful feature which has STILL not been included in the iPhone app, despite being out for quite a long time now. What gives? In general, day-to-day, I use the app more than the browser version of Facebook. It is super annoying to have to wait until I can have access to a PC to be able to link to someone in a post. If I'm out at an event and want to "check-in" and tag a business represented at the event (like I was today), I'm out of luck. That business just lost my free advertising because this social app is missing a key social feature... And if I want to tag an artist in a picture that I took on my iPhone, I first have to email the picture to myself, get on a computer, go to the webmail portal, download my picture, then re-upload it on the browser version of Facebook... Running a recording studio, and wanting to tag bands in my pics, I run into this issue almost every day. Again, what gives? You would think that Facebook would think to add one of their most basic and useful features to their iPhone app, wouldn't you?
Some things need to change
by No1grandi on 2012/09/17 15:30
I've been on FB for quite some time. And while I believe in upgrading and moving forward, I do not like all of the changes on FB. If its not broken you don't need to FIX it. Change just for the sake of Change isn't always good. I would prefer to see all my friends personal status updates again... And not have to go to their page and mark that I want to see them. I have over 1,000 friends that I try to stay in touch with. It takes too much time to try to go to their individual pages and mark "close friend" just so I can see their daily updates. And even then, that doesn't always work. I've had to go back several times when I realize I'm not seeing someone on my page and mark that I want to see them on my newsfeed. I really wish that aspect could go back to the way it was before all the "updating FB" became so popular. I also loathe the fact that FB now allows all those "cartoon" pics to be added. I personally will disconnect from anyone that solely posts those things because that's not personal communication and it takes forever to wade thru them. While I will say some are amusing and I can see why some people post them to bring a smile.... Perhaps there could be an "update" where there is a separate page for these things just as there is for personal photos and let the newsfeed be just for personal status updates. I have written all this....realizing FB could care less what I think. Maybe my venting is at least therapeutic.
New update is much to be desired.
by Ewarren534 on 2013/03/27 06:06
Ever since I updated to the newest version, the app has crashed more times than it's worked. And when it does work, it freezes and I must tap links numerous times before it'll begin to load. The feed is INSANELY slow, and only goes back a minimal amount of posts before refusing to load more. Unacceptable. My notifications also take forever to load if they actually show up at all. And I've been getting phantom notifications when there isn't anything about which to be notified. As far as the new layout goes, why are you trying to inject the twitter layout with the icons for feed, messages, profile, and more on the bottom of the screen? The same icons are at the top. Having two is redundant and cumbersome. Pick one. I don't care which. I very much like how you can easily upload more than one picture at a time. Nice change. But pictures seem to be taking far longer to load in this new version as well. I do not use Facebook for the bells and whistles of the app. I use it to keep up with my friends and share my life with them. If I cannot easily do that with the app then it is useless to me, and I find myself drifting to twitter more often to interact with friends. My advice is to focus on what your customer needs most out of this product: speed of the app to enhance speed in communication, less APP and more us. I was much happier when the app looked more plain and actually worked correctly. This reboot should get the boot. And fast!
Pretty good but could be better
by Allaboutappleandapps on 2012/09/07 01:06
I wanted to love this app and give it 5 stars - I really did, mainly because I love Facebook. I am, like many others, addicted to it. SO it's absolutely wonderful to have an iOS app for Facebook. The problem is, the app is lacking several features. For example, users cannot update many parts of their own profile including "about me", likes/interests, and several other things. In an age in which people can live with an iPad or iPhone as their only technology, it would seem to me that the app ought to be able to do everything you can do in the web browser. Unfortunately this is not the case. Fortunately I also have computers, or I suppose you could use Safari on the iOS device, but why shouldn't the app do everything. For its part, everything the app does, it does very well. I like it and use it every day. I would have given it 4 stars rather than 3, except that the Facebook Team does not seem to have a direct way to actually get support and receive a guaranteed response. All the contacts result in either bug reports or feedback submissions which make no promise of any kind of response. If I didn't love Facebook, and if I were just judging this app as an app, I'd keep looking, since it lacks what I consider to be some essential capabilities, not the least of which is actual app tech support. Yet as I said, the app does work well, and it has become an essential part of my iOS devices and my life.
"BEST" Social Application in the World!!!
by Abercrombie10 on 2013/01/06 16:27
FB has brought about a few "positive" results for myself, as well as, for a couple of family members. I utilize this very App in the best fashion possible, such as, locating long, lost family & friends of which without this AWESOME App this very outcome would NOT have resulted as I attempted to locate in the past prior to the creation & development of FB and zero results came about. Similar outcomes resulted with a couple of family members, as well!!!!!!! It's all in how you utilize & engage in this social App, as occasionally, I will hear negative comments about FB and how it supposedly got them into trouble in some way or another??? Well, it's NOT FB that gets people into trouble, it's people who get themselves into trouble; they're NOT using FB in a smart way instead they're, no doubt, putting their lives right out there where everybody can view it, well, that's NOT FB's fault, rather, that's a bad decision and/or judgement call on behalf of that particular individual who is blaming FB versus blaming themselves(typical, though)!!!!!!! I LOVE FB but know & understand how to utilize for my "benefit" and the positive "benefit" of others, too but only with their prior approval, of course!!!!! "THANK YOU" FACEBOOK(FB) for developing such a social App(#1in the WORLD) that has brought many POSITIVE Outcomes & Results to many people's lives!!!!!!!!!!
Some good additions, some bad changes
by CoryD81 on 2013/04/30 23:36
First of all I like the new format of the news feed and being able to select different feeds from the top of the screen and the new chat heads on the iPhone are nice, but I have had more random crashes than ever before-even on initial startup, but also performing other simple functions requiring a change or refresh of the page. My biggest issue is with 'pages' I can no longer go on a page and read 'posts by others' which is huge for me on a certain page I contribute to frequently. I can still post to the page but I never see it until I get a notification about a comment or like of that post. Am I missing something with that? Or am I just screwed on this version until hopefully it changes back to have access to what other people post on pages. I also have some questions about the chat features that have always boggled my mind, I can see when people are online or how long it's been since they have except for one or two of my friends and they can see my time since being online until a few days after this update one of them randomly noticed that my 'time offline' disappeared without changing anything, and well after the update. Overall I like the news feed and how this works with friends, but I'm extremely disappointed with how 'pages' show up now and the lack of features and ability to see the entire content of them
I like it.

I had a horrible time downloading the update. first the app wouldn't load, so I restarted my iPod. that didn't work, so I deleted & reinstalled the app. still wasn't working so I restarted my iPod again. that time my ipod froze on the apple logo & I had to restore it >.< I think part of the freezing was my fault though, as I was really running out of space & may have not had enough for the update. anyways, the new interface is nice though I don't understand why one section is called "favorites" when I can't change them myself. I'd like another little thing like we had before where we could add a person & quickly go to their profile & everything. just more customization with it, really. opening links is a lot faster now which is great. I love being able to quickly see a notification or message & then jump right back into what I was doing. I am having some problems with a notification showing up when there is nothing new, though. that gets a little annoying but over all I really like the changes. I don't see why everyone has to get so upset every time Facebook makes a change... this app shouldn't have such a low rating. edit - okay nevermind. if people are have that bad of problems then it does deserve a low rating. xD please get another update out quickly.
Mostly Useful

How is it possible that with an iPhone 5 and LTE and wifi and 100 megabits per second download speeds the Facebook app still sometimes takes 30 seconds to load a photograph? Or doesn't update properly? Or doesn't delete messages when deleted? Or crashes? How is it possible that I have to refresh my messages several times sometimes before it shows me new ones? How is it possible that in 2013 I still cannot actually delete messages on the app but have to archive instead? Admittedly this app gets better and better to use and easier to use each time, and I am super excited about having direct implementation iOS 6, however there are things that have not been taken care of that in my opinion that should've been handled five years ago. Kind a like PayPal who doesn't have an iPad app yet… But the iPhone app has been out for years. Integration into the iPhone is nice, but you cannot tag people or mention peoples names, you can simply post or post photographs. Obviously at this point everyone in the world has the app it's not really a question of whether you download it or not so I hope that engineering just reads this and makes the necessary improvements, other than that, Facebook is a really great experience and very useful to grow my life and business on. It's an amazing tool to connect that truly has shaped this era.
How can you be good yet bad?
by Κunta Kinte your name is Toby on 2012/09/02 13:13
Well guys I have to say that the layout of the new Facebook app is wonderful and much easier to navigate. They have made it much more user friendly now which is a plus. Finally they have returned to the alphabetized friends list no longer this random friend list they would show you before so now it is much easier to find your friends. Sadly though with all the improvements they have also gone down by taking away certain key features. Such as the headache to delete messages. You may think you can not delete them but you actually can, just don't try it from the actual messages center there it won't let you. You have to go into the chat to actually delete well not delete actually archive them because Facebook seems to like to keep a record of all your conversations (don't say anything that can be used against you in a court of law). Another thing that bothers me is the inability now to change my cover photo from my phone. Seriously I have to wait to get on my PC to change it? So if I take a picture on my phone and I want to use that as my cover photo. That means I have to upload it to my PC or directly to Facebook then log into through my PC and change it there. Couldn't make it more of a pain guys. Overall some good changes but the bad bring it down so I give it a 3 out of 5. Which maybe still a Lil too much. Maybe 2 1/5 if we ha the option.
Great tool for keeping in touch......BUT.........!!!!!!!
by Their Nana on 2013/01/13 00:45
I love Facebook for finding people I have known and WANT to keep in touch with. I have stayed with Facebook for years, through changes, upgrades, etc. Lately it seems that changes aren't necessarily for the best, and make it more difficult to manage information and feel secure. MOST IMPORTANTLY, however, I found out recently that if you really have a major problem with Facebook, SUPPORT IS NON-EXISTENT. My Facebook account was attacked because I clicked on a link sent from a friend's account regarding tickets from Southwest Airlines. Facebook (rightly so) locked my account, as the attacker was accessing my friend list and spamming. However, although I asked REPEATEDLY for assistance, searched for help and answers, called every number I could find, I received only two replies from Facebook - one asking for verification of who I was (again, rightly so), and one email to advise that my account had been restored and my access granted. Not true - as I was NEVER able to access my account again, and NEVER received another reply from Facebook, although I emailed and called several times per day for days!!! I lost my account, all of my data, access to friends, pages, areas, etc., both free and purchased, that I had built up over the years. Also noted: "Help" information links do not necessarily contain correct information. NOT HAPPY!!!!!!! If my friends and I find another app to replace this, we will definitely try it!
Love/hate relationship
by Gracemomlett on 2013/07/10 12:58
Facebook is Facebook, an ever-changing forum that challenges the obsessively social members of society to conform to the learning curve. Why can't I treat my liked pages like friends and get notifications from the ones I choose? And if this is already an option, why does it require rocket science to figure out how to do it? Why must I restart the app when I click on stuff, sometimes? Servers in overload or is my ram the problem? And why does fb take me back to the beginning of my feed when I follow a rabbit trail? Is someone laughing maniacally at me every time I have to scroll back through it all to get back where I was? I understand the need for occasional updates, but can future changes involve less automatic availability of my info to the masses, and feature more emphasis on the protection of my privacy? And why can't I go back into my own posts and find stuff I put there? Sometimes I post things so I have easy access to them later. If you're going to erase stuff from my page, can you at least give me a heads-up first so I can back it up? Do I sound annoyed? I guess I could have continued on in frustration, a slave to my appreciation for all the good things about Facebook, but since you asked for my opinion...oh, and how many times should I hit Submit before my review is posted and the "Write a review" option goes away? We're you just waiting til I asked that question?
What happened?
by Alfonso Huerta on 2014/08/20 15:03
The idea behind Facebook is probably the best thing about it. Then the reality of making money has made it frustrating to use. I am not like the average user on Facebook. I use Facebook to stay connected with people I actually know in real life. I don't follow celebrities, organizations, or news sites. I don't like every single post that pops up on my almost useless timeline. Every time I log into the app, I have to switch to the most recent. I don't care for the "top stories". I just want to see all the new posts since the last time I logged in, not all the likes. How is that new information. I say useless because the same posts continue to appear on my timeline every time someone likes a post. I just want to see the latest post. I don't I care if someone liked someones post from a week ago today. I wished they would let people customize their newsfeed. I like that my own wife's posts don't appear on my timeline. What I started doing is going into my friends pages that don't appear on my timeline to see what they post. Also, why the hell would I want to use messenger. If people wanted to contact me they can do it on my Facebook wall or they can text me. I am not going to download another app that will have the same function as someone texting me or posting on my wall. I rarely post things and I don't share my personal information on social sites. I just basically use Facebook as an active address book.
Freezes, updates endlessly, shuts down without reason, hate the ads!
by alpha1me on 2013/05/23 12:48
*THIS IS AN UPDATE TO MY REVIEW FROM SEVERAL MONTHS AGO: Nothing has changed. It still freezes constantly, shuts down without reason, updates endlessly which prevents you from doing anything until it decides it's ready to quit wigging. And, I STILL HATE THE ADS! If I want to shop, I know where to go. I have enough of a brain to not need suggestions. Don't we get bombarded enough with that kind of stuff on TV? That is why I cut the cord from cable and do Netflix! Fix this thing! It's near unusable some days. Previous review: You know, if I wanted to shop I know where to go on the web to do so, or I can put on my shoes and go to a real store. I hate seeing ads or as you call them "suggestions" on my page. It is almost enough to make me leave once and for all. Get rid of the ads on my page! If you want them on the side bar as in the past so be it, but not on my page!!!!! Also, the app freezes up and/or shuts down constantly. At times it will attempt to update and get stuck in the updating status until I close the app. I can open it back up and it will still continue updating indefinitely. The only way to make it stop is to either uninstall and reinstall the app or shut my iPad completely off and the cut it back on. Can't say it's my WiFi strength, tested at 20+Mbps. OVERALL, I CAN LIVE WITH THE FREEZING, SHUTTING DOWN, CONTINUOUS UPDATING OVER THE DANG ADS!!!!!! GET RID OF THE ADS!!!!!
Too many modifications
by Meshell222 on 2013/08/02 13:31
So many updates so many modifications/upgrades are becoming overwhelming. Facebook constantly needs to be updated and its pretty annoying. Though it would b nice for bug fixes to not be necessary so often after updates that modify and upgrade the program. Though I personally liked FB better when it was simple with no timeline. I don't need to chat with anyone through my FB app. And I certainly don't need to be on FB 24/7 using all the fancy updates. I like to be able to quickly check in and see what my contacts r up to. My biggest pet peeve is the fact that u can't prevent anyone from posting embarrassing pixz. And Cyber bullying on Facebook is growing in large volumes an there seems to b no way to prevent it. Many young impressionable Tweens/teens are suffering the repercussion. FB needs to do something about it. In the meantime I am just going to stick with FB on my PC rather than my phone especially since I can't accidentally like something with my mouse. Added comment: One feature that is annoying is when hiding friend requests. They r hidden for a reason and don't need to be highlighted on the friends page. Now the friend suggestion is even more in your face and when u click on see more it takes u to the area where u can see all ur hidden requests. Please remove all of this. It's too much. Especially for people who want it simple and don't need to be constantly adding new contacts.
Too many glitches or bad programming
by Chief O on 2013/02/22 04:21
I don't like the program on a few areas. I setup to receive notifications when my wife makes posts but now I don't get them. Last couple months I would receive a text message notification and warn me to keep on I had to reply. I would reply every time per the instructions to keep on my messages and then it showed I would continue to receive messages. This happened many times within five days or less and then it would happen again. I did this multiple times. I recently went to my page on my PC and again turned on my notifications (15 Feb) but then again on 19 Feb it was off again. This is BS to keep making me and others keep turning on something I already turned on. Today, 22 Feb I see my wife did some posts but I have not received any notifications. I don't like that it only loads a few posts and then I have to select to load older posts. People should be able to preset a number of days to preload such as 30 or 60 days, not just 5 posts that were all done in less than an hour. My biggest problem is access to an account for a deceased person. The surviving person or police should have access granted based on a valid police report just like insurance companies or stolen cars with on-star. Last, I saw the story of the 104 year old woman and the fact she can't use her real age. Facebook MUST change to allow her to use her real age!
Crashes too often; doesn't deliver content; push notifications almost never send.
by autermatic on 2013/07/04 16:29
Developers, here's your moneymaker: The more on my newsfeed that I have to scroll through, the more ad content I'm willing to put up with. So; if the person is on my friends list, PUBLISH ALL OF THEIR STATUS UPDATES TO MY NEWSFEED. I only get consistent status updates from maybe four people on my friends list; either you've run everyone else away, or you're failing to deliver status updates from all my friends. (Oh and sometimes the App refuses to load any updates from more than just a day ago. Again: more content means more traffic for your business partners.) If I open a shared link halfway through my news feed, when I return I have to start loading all posts again from the very most-recent. Instead, I'll just stop using FB for the day. (You might have fixed this already, but since I've already almost given up on your App I wouldn't know. I'm sure you're not trying to lose even more consumers though. You'll notice every front-page review from recent dates - ALL of them - are one-star reviews.) Push notifications almost never send -- there is no discernible pattern to why they work sometimes and sometimes don't. When I move from the App to a different App, then re-open Facebook, it will just crash. This results in the previously-mentioned having to re-load all the data on my newsfeed which I've already seen, if I want to continue browsing. Instead I abandon FB for the day.
Privacy policies
by CookMom03 on 2013/10/21 14:39
I love the App and love Facebook! I'd say its perfect other than picture privacy settings! I believe your pictures should be able to be protected to the fullest extent!!! For those that don't care they don't have to put the settings in place, but for us that do care it would be so comforting to know that my pictures cannot be copied, or shared by anyone and can't be even seen by anyone who isn't a friend! I love to share my family events with those I love and with Facebook it's so easy but I worry so much about who can see my pictures through friends pages or by someone that may choose to stalk my page! I keep all settings as private as possible and instead if helping to protect our children and private family photos Facebook is doing the opposite by getting rid of more and more private settings!!! Facebook would get 10 stars in my book if they could make these simple changes that people like me could have the option to make our private life more private!!! There are tons of good people is this world and just as many bad! Child predators, people who steal your photos for fake profiles, people looking for personal information to steal identities, and so many more!! Please fix our Facebook so we can make our stuff more private and feel more secure!!! Not the other way around!!!
What are you talking about???
by Jazarrr on 2012/08/26 20:02
I have no clue what some people are talking about when it comes to some features. You can still save pics.. Just tap and hold the pic. You can still share pics... There is a little icon by the comment and and like buttons. You can search for people other than your friends and the search is much faster than before... Just type a random name and see. You can still delete posts by swiping them sideways. You can set profile pics... Just tap and hold and of your pics or one you're tagged in. You can update existing albums... Just go to album and tap the + in the upper right corner. You lose out on landscape view, but I dont know anyone who actually uses it. You can't update cover pic... But that makes sense because uploading a cover pic on your phone looks COMPLETELY different from when you update from PC. You lose out on being able to tag existing photos but you can tag any new photos you add. App is much faster. Pics are much better and faster to load. New gestures are very nice. You can leave conversations in your inbox (I love that they enabled that... Don't you hate it when someone adds you to some useless convo you don't wanna be in and you couldnt removed yourself till you got home?!). I'd say this is my favorite update thus far. The gain certainly outweighs the loss.
Posting to a friend's wall
by KCMadson on 2013/09/26 16:03
Is it just me or is anyone else having to go through six steps to be able to get to a friend's timeline to post on their wall?? I have no "Friends" list or icon other than by swiping the screen to the left. Then, when I do and find their name and touch it it takes me straight to the Messages screen vice their timeline. If I want to post to their wall I have to touch on their name at the top of the message screen which then tells me about them then I have to touch "More" to get the "View Timeline" option to pop up. Then I have to touch "View Timeline." Wow, finally to their wall! But, lets not forget, there is still one more step before finally being able post something...having to touch "Write Post" (which obviously is no different than before.) But what a pain!! Am I missing something? I realize I am still only operating on iOS6.2 but geez!! I have a handful of navigational icons at the bottom of the Newsfeed screen but none of them say "Friends" or "View a Timeline." Would rather have that than the "More" icon in that row!! Oh, and the other annoyance? ...after going through all those steps, when you're done and go back to the Newsfeed, the picture bubble of the person who's wall you just posted on is now on your screen. You have to do yet one more thing and slide their bubble to the bottom of your screen to make it disappear!! Frustrating!! Either tell me how to accomplish this with minimal steps like before or PLEASE FIX it!
Title
by Nickname17238893215 on 2014/06/24 20:08
This app has been making me very angry. Every time that I get on Facebook through this app, it will randomly go to my home screen. I can't use links because it does the same thing when I click on them. I don't enjoy having to scroll through my newsfeed over again to get to more posts when the app quits on me. Game requests- they are horrible. If I had any interest in playing them, I would have started playing them hundreds of game requests ago. I disabled many of the games I could be notified for, but I am not able to disable them all. Another thing that I dislike is other people liking things and what they liked showing up on my newsfeed. I really don't care if they liked some stupid Teenager Post that I have already seen ten times. Also, I dislike how the chat is set up on the app. Instead of saying which users are currently on Facebook, I have a favorites list. The thing with that list is, it is not based off of how often I message them. I would like to see which users are currently on Facebook, not a random list of people that are not. However, I do like Facebook, I just don't like the Facebook app. The website is amazing on a laptop, just not on most mobile devices. If I were to rate Facebook as a website and not an app, I would give it a higher rating. The app needs a lot of work. The creators of Facebook have almost perfected the website, but haven't perfected the app.
Keeps getting worse
by Thot_Killer7 on 2014/08/11 10:17
I have recently gotten my Facebook hacked and I'm sure it's not the last. I wanted to send my best friend a message on how to help me since I have never gotten hacked but I couldn't because I had to download the stupid Messenger app. I downloaded it. And then I saw my messages blow up and saw that my angry friends were telling me that they have received spam on comments and really weird messages from me that I have never sent. I told them I got hacked and told me it was ok. Then I messaged my friend and he told me to change my password which I did. Then I see that 2 people accepted friend requests I did not send. Then I checked that my hacker had sent over 100 friend requests!!! I had to delete them all and I got a notification that I got blocked from sending requests for a few weeks. Really?!?! I was already having a stressful day and I had to deal with this. The stupid hacker could have read all my messages and private things. Please fix with an antivirus or something like that to prevent future hacks. Another problem I have is with the messenger app. I don't want to download it but now it's MANDATORY to download it. I never had a problem with it as I used a tablet in the past and I would use the chat heads, no problem but I got a new iPod and it won't let me use chat heads. The chat heads were easier as I could stay on the Facebook app and still send messages. I don't want to go from Facebook to another app just to read my messages. Again please fix
Facebook review
by Holiday417 on 2013/02/20 03:56
I am extremely happy to have the Facebook app for on the go. It lets me view most everything. That is one problem, there are some things that do not show up on my news feed on my phone. I don't even know they are there unless I log on using a computer. Examples being birthday notifications and event invitations. Events cannot be made on this feature either. Nor can i modify or delete comments made by other people on anything on my timeline. This can be rather frustrating as people do not always post/comment things I want everyone to see, or that I care to see. Profile pictures cannot be changed on this app. And I'm not sure if it actual Facebook or my phone but I cannot turn my pone sideways to get a wider screen or keypad and I find it extremely frustrating to type on even smaller letters. And one general frustration with Facebook is the news feeds no longer show up in order. I can have a post from 3 days ago and then "just now" and then 3 minutes ago. No apparent order to how they show up. I am pleased with simplicity of adding photos with this app though. Also, upon reading other reviews I have realized the slowing down of the app must be the app itself. This is very frustrating a I cannot view pics or enlarge posts often. I thought it was my Internet, but given he common complaint i see that is not the case.
Some helpful suggestions
by Marisa HB on 2013/06/27 19:32
Easy to use, intuitive, convenient. The couple of areas I would improve upon would be: When a picture is uploaded it is not automatically made public. It's a huge bother to have to remember to go back & change the privacy settings on every single pic individually. I would suggest having an option in Privacy Settings where you can set a default of who can see any pic you upload, then if you wish to modify that, you can. Secondarily, I've noticed that on the mobile FB app you don't have the ability to delete a post. It would be nice to be able to do that. Thirdly, it would be great to be able to edit a status, rather than having to delete & repost. This is especially disappointing when the status already has likes & shares, because those are lost. Lastly, it would be a convenient upgrade if it were possible to add pics to an already posted status. Maybe a button named "add pics" or just use the existing pic icon. For instance, if you posted a status saying you we're somewhere or doing something, and then later on had some pics of that place or activity, it would be great to be able to upload those pics to that status as opposed to creating a new status to post the pics in. Thank you for reading/considering my feedback. :)
If I could give zero stars I would
by Tsurratt on 2014/12/02 11:12
This app, in all honesty, deserves at least three, maybe four stars. However, with the multitude of problems that users have with the management of the app from the removal of messages, the attempts to force a second app on us, the near removal of the most recent feature, and horrible loading and freezing times, I think that it's obvious what's going on. Ever since facebook went public, the company and its product has gotten worse and worse. Pages that have nothing wrong with them are flagged and blocked because some people don't like the message. Ads are everywhere, and facebook decided that ad space is more important than friend updates. This is no longer a social media site; its a social experimentation site. Facebook has been caught experimenting on users through newsfeed manipulation before, and I wouldn't be surprised if that's what all of this nonsense is. The problems that everyone has are easily circumvented, but it's a waste of time and space. Forcing people into a message app is an attempt to create more revenue. Removing the most recent and assaulting users with ads is an attempt to create revenue. I guarantee you mark zuckerberg doesn't use this app; he probably has the app we all want this one to be. As soon as another social media site comes out with the same features, and it will be soon, Facebook will start down the same road MySpace and the chat rooms from the old days went: into the archives.
Jumping the gun
by Stone Temple Pilot on 2013/07/15 02:42
It's a little slow to update when you re-open it on an iPad. I can't really use it at all on my phone, which is a Droid. It's still okay on my laptop. It would be nice if the interfaces were the same or at least a lot more similar to each other between devices, because some things I can do with the app on my phone (when it worked, anyway) I can't do with the iPad or laptop, and vice versa. Also, the only way to get rid of the number of "Close Friend" updates, I have to open the list with my laptop. I can see the list with my phone and iPad, but it doesn't "count" that I looked at it so it will still say I have X amount of updates I haven't seen. It's a crapshoot to look to see if there really is something new on there or not, plus the list doesn't refresh very well. The "chat heads" don't appear while I'm using another app on my iPad, nor do they hang around on the home screen until dismissed, so I have no idea I have a message until it's too late (I read on my iPad and nothing happens to notify me if I have a new message). Basically, Facebook seems to be adding all sorts of new things, but not making sure that whatever new option they made works and syncs across all platforms before throwing it out there. There should also be more games from Facebook available as apps that sync between devices like Candy Crush Saga and Bubble Witch Saga. Those are the only two that I know of that can synchronize progress between devices.
FB new update
by Miasavlei on 2014/12/20 00:05
I use FB daily usually & for the most part I enjoy it. I have a few issues with the constant blocking me from friend requesting just because a couple people may say they don't know me since you give them that option now so you think I'm spamming. Ridiculous! & block me from FB altogether sometimes & you say it's for 30 days but it ends up being closer to 60 or more. & if I choose to deactivate my account temporarily, you delete my photo album & other criteria & I struggle to get it all back again. & other glitches in your imperfect system. But regarding the new update, there are pros & cons, mainly sometimes it won't let you create a new photo album & upload to it. Sometimes it won't let you delete comments on threads. It won't let you do much of what you could before. The only positive thing I can say about it is that it gives you the option to speed back up to top to new posts in newsfeed & speed down to new comments on threads. Though you slide around too much viewing pics. Personally, my main complaint is that it won't let me see 'most recent' posts. Instead, it shows in my newsfeed what FB thinks I want to see. In turn, I miss tons of my friend's posts. I have to go to their page to see their activity. Just show us everyone, not just some people! More cons than pros but hey, FB is free huh? For now anyway. Peace!
It works, mostly.
by foold on 2011/05/20 00:38
For starters let me say that when the Facebook app works, it works well. With the small exception of not being able to tag people in posts (a feature that would be a GREAT addition) you can do most everything else that you could do on a regular computer. However, it only works 60% of the time. If its not being slow, laggy, or otherwise unresponsive, its randomly logging you out (and I do stress RANDOMLY, I can find no pattern in the log outs). Getting back in is just as difficult, involving quitting the app via the quick switch menu accessed by double tapping the home button, but only AFTER you have typed in your information and waited at least 10 seconds to make sure you don't receive the all to frequent "try again later" message. The notification system is poor at best, showing some notifications but not others. Looking at, and commenting on photos is a nightmare, don't even bother using the app for that. The one redeeming feature that makes the app worthwhile is the creepy-if-you-think-about-it-too-hard "check in" system, which works fairly well. For all it's flaws, however, the app remains superior to trying to use the iPhone browser, and in the end it IS a free app. If I were paying for it, I'd be outraged. But I'm not, so I'm not. I can only hope that they fix the bugs in the system especially the relatively recent one of randomly logging out.
New and recurring problems with every update
by Nefretari2 on 2012/04/14 00:37
With every update I keep hoping that it will get better, but I am consistently disappointed. The latest update, 4.1.1, is terrible! I get notification indicators, but I can't see my notifications, it's incredibly slow, and keeps crashing. I should not have to keep logging out then back in to make it work. I also should not have to keep deleting and reinstalling all the time either. Another complaint that I have has to do with the sorting of my newsfeed (all updates since the introduction of Timeline).I like seeing my friends' most recent posts, which is why I dislike that the default sort is Top Stories. I follow some news pages, and with the sort defaulting to Top Stories the post that I really care about, those posted by my friends, are buried way down at the bottom of my feed. I would prefer the default to be Most Recent, with the option to choose Top Stories. Especially since the app tends to freeze or crash before I can't scroll down to what I find important. I DON'T NEED FACEBOOK TO TELL ME WHAT'S IMPORTANT! I know what's important to me, and no matter how complicated of an algorithm is written, it will never be able to intuit that. I understand that this is a free app for a free site, but honestly, I would be willing to pay a couple of bucks for the app if it meant that the product was reliable and bug free. I also know that no one at Facebook will actually read this, but one can always hope.
Ok but needs some work
by fireflyhmk on 2012/11/17 16:57
There are several things going awry with this app. I have to go between the app and safari to get things done. It typically works better from safari for most things. There are such inconsistency's between the two. The app should be up to date and super awesome compared to the mobile site version. Some things I can recall are... The newsfeed isn't always up to date not to mention you can't stop following someone from your phone. As well it seems to zone in on the same ppl. Out of all my friends why do I only get to see a handful of them? I've missed engagements, births etc. Fb should reclassify what qualifies for "important". Picture tagging doesn't work. Events are a disaster. If you RSVP no, you can't write a post any longer. You can't share events with friends most times and it won't let you add invitees for events. Pretty sure you can't create an event from your phone unless using safari. (I get confused which one will do what!) and you aren't able to change the event picture at all. Also I think there should be a way to add event to your calendar. (google calendar would be great) Can't delete or edit post from app, have to go to safari for that. I don't have issues with it crashing as others have mentioned. Functions fine just has some user friendly things that would be helpful if improved.
READ VERY TRUE

ok it is good a little different than website and in a bad way website better but the app is still good but needs an update and I prefer the website I think you will because te website is way better and easier to use but if you are always on the go and just need to see what your friends are up to then this app is great but I think the app should use an update because can take a wile to load but with the latest update it has been a lot faster when loading but the app should be updated so if u are always at home use the website if u r always on the go the app will be fine I am giving it three stars because the website is better an this app can take some time to load but as I said with the latest update it is a lot faster than before but if u don't want to go through the trouble of looking up Facebook or something than this app is perfect oh and FYI Facebook is so last year if you want to be hip and cool get instagram it has never crashed on me and loads right away so check out instagram or twitter celebrities aren't on Facebook or never post so if all u want to do is keep track of celebrities then go on twitter which is kinda 6 months ago and instagram is def in and hip celebs are on both but NOT Facebook for all of u who read my review thank you I know it's long but at least it tells u what's in and what's out
Disappointed but hopeful
by Muzkwriter on 2013/01/19 11:16
I find it annoying that I am limited to Like and Comment, instead of being able to share pictures and statuses. Also I don't like that the feed is random rather than chronological. I think I preferred just going through the Internet, rather than the iPad app for Facebook. Well, FB asked me to rate it, but it already had this comment before I started. (It may be a comment I made sometime ago!) I do find that they have improved some opportunities to share, but it seems to be random. I prefer chronological and I do prefer making my own choices from a set selection. Still haven't figured out the privacy settings, too many questionable hoops to jump through. FB is such a big endeavor, I guess they are still sorting and developing. Categorizations: the Encouragers, the Crazies, the Lonely, the Moms trying to keep up with their families' lives, the Networkers, the Scalpers, the Wicked, the curious, and the bored kids. Love is needed, and I am thinking that only the perfect love of Jesus will do! Thanks FB for inventing this social media, trusting that you will keep improving! I think that the FB iPad app has improved, but keep working, because the iPad is fun, yet addictive. I never dreamed I could be a techie at 65. :-)

When there's an app (or 2 or 3 or 5) to access FB mobile, it might be a clue that brings to mind the Mother of Invention. "Quickly" allows you to change your header (but can't access photos from your mobile device). Then there's messenger, etc. Yeah, FB is fine, it's fun, but the app is soooo slow! I've yet to find info on how to make it faster. It's usually the app and very inconsistent. 1/6 of the time it's great. Not a good average in a world that asking us to move at light speed. I've finally started to explore Google+. It's geared more for adults. That said, 5 years in, I'll always love FB. Finally, my greatest concern is the lack of privacy. When you read mainstream articles about FB co-owners skipping town over taxes owed, or the gathering of personal info and trends, and when you you hear that employers are demanding your FB password, it tells you your living in a very creepy world. Marks great, and incredibly generous and a friend to the right side of history, so I do appreciate this powerhouse being socially responsible. However, anyone that thought FB was worth even 25% of what it went public for is an astronomical idiot. And please don't get me started in Billion Dollar Baby, INSTAGRAM. They alleged they don't technically own everything you post, but why else buy an app that filters are being mimicked left and right? Frankly in surprised Getry Images hasn't bought the lot. Signed, The Village Idiot.
Love my Facebook
by Wanda-hoondi hoonda-wandi on 2013/01/01 02:33
I am an original user... Signed up when it first came out to keep in touch with my friends overseas. It was great. We had used many formats to try to accomplish this. None had lasted or if they have, they weren't effective at keeping us in contact. Fb has been awesome. Then, just when I had found all the friends I thought possible, I came across an old school friend. It was like winning the lottery. Through this one friend, I found a jackpot of friends from long ago, and got to see how people were doing as well as their families. By this time Fb was on the move and people were signing up left and right. I found a whole new group of overseas friends who hadn't been on Fb originally. Then, alas, this last election season, I was able to meet people who share my ideas and have similar thoughts and take action on them. It's very exciting. I think the privacy is excellent! Children are not allowed, and when they get onto fb, their parents almost always know (which makes it a bad parent issue, not an Internet issue). I hope I have made my point. I hope Fb lasts. We love the free games, love the sharing of pics, status, bdays, it's better than sending emails. Thank u Zuck, I think you are doing fine.
FB = the next MySpace?
by Paying Customer 123 on 2013/03/19 16:29
SUGGESTION: Everyone must spend less time reading and writing these ratings and try sending constant direct messages to Facebook. That said, I have 60 seconds to waste now... I rarely take this much time to rate free apps, but this in not free for me, I use their paid services. It is appalling for a company to produce such terrible mobile apps after the IPO incident. They must never read these ratings or don't care. I wonder if even the direct contacts and suggestions make any difference. With all the competition springing up around them, FB may well be left in the dust. One well executed new service could turn FB into another MySpace quickly. It may be a free app for most, but the business ads/services sold (which I have now placed on hold), forced suggestions into the news feed, etc... are a major reason FB exists. Many say not to complain about a free app, but to use their paid services is quite expensive considering how unhappy my target audience is with FB and how many are leaving. Everyone knows how all the 5 star ratings that simply say "this is good" are built up to draw attention from the 1 star posts with long detailed messages like this and detailed complaints from "actual users" about specific items that need to be addressed. CONTACT FB DIRECTLY TO CLEARLY LIST THE SHORTCOMINGS THAT EVERY REAL USER AGREES MUST BE ADDRESSED. If not the same old complaints will roll through these ratings month after month, year after year.
Why Facebook, why?
by PrincessAlly45 on 2014/05/06 14:52
With all the brilliant people you have working for you why can't you make an app without all the useless bells and whistles that will load quickly, allow you to go back to where you left off on your newsfeed, photos, and groups? Please fix notification alerts after clicking one notification all of them appear as read, this results in many missed comments and posts. When you receive a notification on a post from a group it takes you to the group page not the post your notification showed you then you have to hunt through a lot of group post to find it, often it's lost forever. Why not directly link it like newsfeed posts. Please allow the user to choose top stories or most recent and don't keep changing it back to top stories every time you open news feed. And for the love of God stop continuously updating the news feed. It is incredibly annoying to be in the middle of a friends long winded post and the app decides to refresh and take you to the top of the newsfeed. Not a good feature at all. And for goodness sake make a dislike button. Oh and the emojis on the computer look awful. Why not allow the cool stickers you have on messenger to be used on all posts. All that money and genius behind Facebook and you can't make a beautiful fast, functioning app with cool looking emojis and a dislike button? Hire me as a product tester before releasing such crappy updates.

Space Required

Why does this app require so much space!?
I feel like the app gets worse each update
by Manicsubsidal01 on 2015/06/03 05:06
Today alone my diagnostic log shows Facebook exceeded the memory usage 89 times. The kicker is I wasn't using the app at all today. Not once. For even a moment. Facebook is also set to not use cellular and background app refresh is off. That being said, according to my battery usage, 33% is Facebook (background) How is it that an app in not using and isn't supposed to run in the background is using a third of my power consumption.

I'm noticing that when I'm listening to music and browsing through my newsfeed on Facebook, my music would stop.. I thought nothing of it so I would just replay my music and browse through my newsfeed more.. The more I kept scrolling the more my music would pause and it's really annoying It only does it with the Facebook app.. I don't know if it's my iPhone or some bug..

by Littlechief79 on 2015/06/03 03:11
I'm being asked to log into the mobile app for iPhone. My username (email) is already filled in and when I enter my password a msg pops up that reads "there was a slight misspelling of my email and it has been corrected. Please re enter your password for security." When I re enter it the msg pops up again and again and again. I reset my password and doubled checked my username. Both are correct but I continue to get the msg. I can log into Facebook on my mobile browser just not the app.

Facebook scans private mailboxes for 'friends'
by NicknSF on 2015/06/03 02:03
When the push messages started appearing a few weeks ago, 'Do you know?' so and so...from confidential work mail..from 1 year ago. Class action suit would be appropriate. Alas, there are no privacy settings on your iPhone that Facebook has any respect for.
Fix this stuff
by Katisueisme on 2015/06/03 00:47
bring back the old share! and when I paste a link it should show a thumb clip.. the new version doesn't do that. also I should be able to share a link/thumb clip with a picture. can I please check my messages without messenger. I don't need the bubbles or anything, just let me old fashioned style check my messages.

by MikPJon88 on 2015/06/03 00:40
After the last update my Facebook never works it is always saying "no stories to show" or network error either when on wifi or off of wifi. I have tried deleting and reinstalling with no improvement! This is a worthless app until Facebook comes up with a solution!

by Soccertaxi on 2015/06/02 23:57
What is up with Facebook? Pretty lame app that won't utilize the rotate to landscape feature. How long has the iPhone been out? Every time I open this app my mantra? "I hate this app". Well FB is consistent with stupidity. Now they have taken away preference for recent posts viewing and I see I am not the only one with this preference. I use this app less and less. One of these days I will just delete.

The newest update is horrible. As you try to scroll through the news feed, it jumps back up to the top, often times in the middle of reading a post. Good luck trying to find it again!! I'm seeing less and less of my friends posts and more posts of groups that I should join, people I may know and ads for things I have no interest in.
Fix Facebook app

Facebook fails
by Shadowblastg on 2015/06/02 18:51
I have just gotten a new account on facebook. I had my phone connected to facebook so just in case of secruity i could text them back the confirmation code. But this has happened for 3 times so far! In 2 days! Now they had given me another one of that random word that i have to spell out correctly. I messed up once! Just ONCE and they block me on facebook without even texting me. They just poof do it! So now im blocked from talking in a group,liking and commenting! Even friend requesting! I am getting tired of this facebook! Ive been blocked now for 30 hours or 30 days!

by Michael Kittel on 2015/06/02 12:17
For such a widely used form of social media with a public worth that is staggeringly large, it amazes me how obvious it is that almost NO work has been put into the iPad app. Out of the dozens of apps that I use on a daily basis this one is the only one that crashes on an almost hourly basis. Yes, it is worth it as it's the only way to access your Facebook on an iPad, but if there were another I would download it in a second.

SPYBOOK
by John C. Toasten on 2015/06/02 09:22
**update**Still spying. Still not telling you what's in the updates. Ask yourself: Why would a company continually change their app and never tell their user why or what has changed? Because their spying on you, that's why. They're sucking up everything they can about your family and friends and selling it to advertisers. Yet another shady update that adds more spying - Guaranteed. Why else would they not tell you what's in the update? Because it's bad. That's why. More undisclosed nonsense - without a doubt.

Can no longer download previous version to fix crashes
by GigaRat on 2015/06/02 06:35
Until today, when the app began it's cycle of incessant crashes, I used to be able to delete it and re-download the latest version that was compatible with my older iPhone to get it functioning again. Now it's trying to force me to update to an iOS that will slow my phone down something obscene, and I can no longer download the previously compatible version. I'm not jumping out of my chair to go buy a brand new phone that can run iOS 7 without slowing it down. And unless I can download the last compatible version until it starts it's temperamental crashing again, I guess the app will remain off of my phone. There's more than one way to skin a cat, just stick to the web for fewer crashes and less irritation. Forcing users to update when they don't need or want to is beyond obnoxious. Let us use the last compatible version again, and as long as it's stable, I'll be happy to revisit an updated review.
Phishy
by OMGITSTHATONEGUY on 2015/06/02 06:12
I don't even do the updates anymore. They never tell you what's actually being updated. Most people would like to know, instead of just installing something they may not want. Some of the updates I've passed up recently people talk of crashes too. Until I read of actual improvement that helps me, I'm not updating.
Stop changing things that work...
by CaliMichele on 2015/06/02 05:16
and fix things that don't. The new drop down pop up when a friend posts is annoying and unnecessary. The 5,000 friend limit is ridiculous if you play games (which you encourage), are a writer, a traveller, or someone who just likes meeting new people. One of the worst things is seeing yesterday's posts in the newsfeed, seriously. Why can't we see the most current posts first. Your app is tanking as fast as FB is.

by HART-OF-SWARM on 2015/06/02 03:39

by Zuly_barrera on 2015/06/02 03:02
It's just not the same anymore, it's becoming very lousy and slow and I know it's not my internet because all my other social media works perfectly fine. Facebook is just very lousy and slow and not properly working. I am disappointed.
Ok, but needs more features.
by Melross84 on 2015/06/02 02:09
The app is fine, but it still shuts down periodically or freezes. The biggest problems are with groups. You can't add to the docs or search the group for past conversations like you can when you use a computer. Since most people use Facebook on their mobile device more often than a PC a lot of time time, it would be more convenient to have these features. You also need an option to delete multiple friends and open links without it crashing.
Video playback is bad
by Scilla500 on 2015/06/02 02:04
The video does not center when tapped to play. It is moved to the top when being played and the play pause button symbol interferes with video image play back on screen. Playback also causes problems with swiping to enlarge screen and exiting, since the symbols are white which are invisible on white video screen. It is not very user friendly for IPhone. The continuous playthroughs to related content is extremely inconvenient. Button symbol sizes should be reconsidered. Whole video layout needs to be redesigned to make the main video that is currently played-- more prominent. overall 2.
Crashing

by NewToApples on 2015/06/02 01:03
Highly disappointed! Have you ever been scrolling down the 1500 post on ur page and this stupid app crashes or closes so then you have to start anew from the very beginning? Well it happens all to often and it is quite annoying! This app is far too unstable!! It has improved but I do not like, no I hate the fact this stupid app always starts from the top of the page in your timeline. I want to open the app and no matter what I want to pick up right where I left off. Not start at the top and have to fight with it to try to find where I was scrolling through. I want it to leave me the hell alone. So that I can read everything or scroll through what I want to see. The app should not get to choose where I start when I come back!!!
Well...
by Liz776634 on 2015/06/02 00:23
I love Facebook. But some problems I've been having is it automatically wants to go to the top of my feed when I'm in the process of reading something. I saw something that I agree with that we should be able to choose the percentage of posts we see from each page. A bug I've noticed is all my other apps seem to connect to the Internet with no problems yet Facebook I'm constantly getting a network error notification and it won't play some videos due to connection issues. But everything else seems fine. I'd like if these problems get fixed. Also I feel like the consistent need for updates with this app causes more problems and bugs than it solves. If it's fixed, don't try to fix it until you break it
Annoying
by Ellaeros on 2015/06/01 23:56
The app was working perfect until the recent update. Every time I'm reading an article within the app, it'll boot me out. Very annoying
Slow and crashes
by Lancealottt on 2015/06/01 23:56
Slow to respond and load. Gets good then bad quickly! Whoever is in charge of these updates needs to be fired! All it does is crash when I load the app or anything from the app. It's so weird that such a large company can't even master stability of an app
Show Most Recent
by jc18750 on 2015/06/01 23:43
Why do I have to change the news feed display from Top Stories to Most Recent practically every time I open the app? Why can't it remember my preference??? There are dozens of similar complaints in the reviews. Why isn't Facebook listening?
Favorites list "Chat On" side bar on mobile
by dianebobby on 2015/06/01 23:34
I'm trying to make my favorites list where I turn on my Chat On, so I can always have them there. For some reason lately it doesn't allow me to put my favorites in a favorite category. & in the past when I did have it, it would always change up the people. It's very annoying!! Fix that please!!!!! I want to be able to open my mobile app & when I slide my screen from right to left & see the people who are online or off.....I want to keep the same people on my list without anything changing. It's SOOOO ANNOYING!!!!! Fix that soon please!!!!!!!!
Unhappy
by Hoosiergal77 on 2015/06/01 23:29
Facebook's latest update has taken away the option of "most recent" for my newsfeed and I am UNHAPPY!! Now I am stuck seeing news that is hours and even days old! Not cool, Facebook, not cool.
Burying "recent posts" deeper and deeper. Terrible.
by English777777 on 2015/06/01 23:04
The big elephant in the room, that Facebook is patently ignoring, is that users simply want to see what their friends have posted, in the order that they posted it. For years. Facebook has been burying this option deeper and deeper, so that they force users to see their "top posts" version, i.e., the version in which THEY decide what you get to see, and in what order, according to their best interests and bottom line. When I opened this new, pointless version, I thought they had finally removed the "recent posts" option entirely, and was on my way to uninstall it. Another reviewer here kindly pointed out that it is still available, albeit buried one more level deeper. I'll go see if it's now three clicks away. If it is, I'll be uninstalling. Twitter has never been so appealing. (Update) well, today, I opened the app to find that they seem to have finally removed "most recent" ability. I will now be uninstalling. Facebook, you don't get to force-feed me whatever YOU decide I should see. Your arrogance is astounding. Bye bye.

Most Recent Posts
by Rickschleifer on 2015/06/01 22:26
Why can't I lock-in to view the most recent posts? So tired of having to go back and hit the most recent button again and again. Ready to delete and give up on Facebook.
Disappointed
by CattyBoss on 2015/06/01 22:26
Won't let me log into Facebook on the Facebook app.
Hate new update.
by El Greco 12 on 2015/06/01 22:26
You keep trying to bury both my friends posts and the "most recent" news feed. Yet this recent update finally killed both. Cmon FB.

Not even explaining the details of the update, immensely shady
Leave Well enough Alone
by Sketchbookbt on 2015/06/01 21:54
It seems like everything works the way it should and the developers have Togo and create a new update to screw us all over every time we manage to finally get comfortable with the old one. Now the app freezes all the time and crashes my iPad and I have to turn it off and back on regularly. I've tried deleting and reloading the FB app twice and am sick of it. The app worked just fine before the last update and now I tell my friends and family to just log into their account to through the regular internet browser instead. Leave well enough alone, guys. These updates are wholly unnecessary.

This new layout is HORRIBLE! I think I'm going to uninstall the Facebook app altogether and just use the browser version.
Worst version ever
by Is a xenia on 2015/06/01 21:08
This current version needs to be scrapped. Far too glitchy and crashes regularly. Please update!
Crashing issues

I've been experiencing constant crashing issues all day on Facebook today 6/1/15. It keeps crashing and throwing me out Facebook on my mobile phone.
Just ridiculous
by jdm_ist on 2015/06/01 19:40
Every single video I ever try to watch at one point drops the volume all the way down then sloooowly fades back up. Also what's the point of even having a button to log out if it never fully logs you out? Fix that!
Slow

I can't see my notifications... Very inconvenient... Would really like this fixed now or some kind of support to help me fix it
Why!!
by 1Sassin on 2015/06/01 17:43
I really enjoy using Facebook to see and talk to my friends and family that I haven't seen in a while, but on the iPhone when you syncing your photos you can not add them to your time line... Now how unimportant can a syncing photo can be those unforgettable moments that cannot be shared unless you download them again to your phone that's already full... (iPhone mistake)!! Fixit please......

I use to be able to drag certain friends to the top of my favorites in the chat bar for my iPhone but recently when I accidentally deleted fb I reinstalled it and when i tried to fix my favorites for the chat it wouldn't let me have anyone in my favorites. Please fix this.
Very good

I can't get it to download on my iPad it is just sitting there saying its waiting. And I can even get that to delete
App open
by Ldlucucjv on 2015/06/01 15:40
You should probably fix the stupid this that happens when you listen to music and open the app. I would be listening to music and when I open the app some times my music volume will get lower. Then I have to refresh the app to get my music back to normal.. It's annoying
Change log?
by __b on 2015/06/01 15:32
Every good software company puts detailed change information when they update their software. End-users want to know BEFORE updating what features are added/tweaked/removed. Why does Facebook think this is beneath them?

CRASH AND BURN! AGAIN!
by The Blonde Cookie on 2015/06/01 14:48
(Second revision of this review). Just bought an iPhone 6+, with IOS 8.3. I had been using an iPhone 4, and just dealing with crappy performance, figuring that since I had an old iPhone, that explained it. Before it froze up on me, and I had to reboot it a couple of times to work THAT out. Now it CRASHES on me. I'm adding to this review, which I previously sent, because it's STILL the same, obnoxious performance. And it's getting old, I'm (already) using Facebook a lot less than I used to. And searching out apps, AND web sites, that are more responsive to their users. Notification counter (looking from outside the app) is seriously MESSED UP - like by 20 notifications, sometimes MORE (it'll say I have 50-some notifications, and I only might have 20-some). Also, making edits to a post AFTER you have posted it is VERY obnoxious - getting it to STAY at the place you want it to, so you can get the cursor where you need to get it is SERIOUSLY ridiculous. You might consider copying the post, deleting it and posting it again (and make the change PRIOR to posting it - it's THAT level of STUPID). Also, the notifications might originally show, but as soon as I start going through them, they might (or might not, and I haven't figured out WHAT makes the difference) go away (meaning they look as though you've clicked through them). Which means you have to go through ALL of them AGAIN - top to bottom. And whatever IDIOT changed the notifications such that it now goes to "more notifications" (and you have to go to the "inside" section EVERY TIME, after EVERY notification, to see the rest of them - particularly if you're like me, and don't bother getting online as much anymore) - PLEASE cut that person's hands off! WHAT a SERIOUS pain! 😁🔫 So I guess my big question is this - WHO ARE YOU FOLKS DESIGNING THIS APP FOR? It freezes on the low end (iPhone 4, IOS 7.1 or something like that), and crashes on the high end (iPhone 6+ IOS 8.3). - HUH??? WHAT'S UP, FACEBOOK? At some point, folks are gonna say (if they aren't already), "the heck with this - it ain't really THAT much fun" (versus all the associated aggrevationS). And take their balls and go play elsewhere. You've been riding the tide…for now. But something else will come along. It always does. I've been online since '96. This is just ~another~ chat room, after all. People might get tired of it ~sooner~ than later. Like me. I don't spend NEARLY the time on it as I used to - WHY BOTHER? It's just aggravating. How does that translate into lost revenue? I'm guessing y'all are already feeling the crunch. It started out as a great idea. But I'll bet the numbers aren't as wonderful as they were even a year ago. I wonder why…
Changing Facebook profile name
by RichHomieQuan#1 on 2015/06/01 14:37
Should have the ability to change my profile name whenever I want instead of waiting 60 days..!!! **Enable users to add characters/emojis to profile name!
So much better but....
by Colorado5533 on 2012/10/03 00:45
This update makes it SO much better. It is much faster than it used to be and crashes so much less often. It's only happened twice as compared to every single time I got on. It loads the news feed and people's pages quickly, and makes my post quickly without crashing as well. So all in all its pretty good. However, I can't change my profile or cover pictures, can't make a new album, I'd like to be able to customize more. Like who can see post or pics. Like you can on a computer, so only specific people can see it. Sometimes when I delete a post it still shows up in the news feed but when I click on it it says you can't find it. There is no share button and no way to save pics to your library anymore like there used to be so how am I supposed to share a pic or link with my friends. I can't delete a post directly from the news feed, I have to go to my page and do it, so it's just an extra silly step. And as I said before it doesn't actually delete it. And then it doesn't refresh. I pull it down to do so and it doesn't. I noticed because the time from people's posts have not changed. I've had to log out completely and re put in my password, which is long, I don't know If I'm the only one who has these little problems but overall this is much better than the previous version and is good to find friends and pages and see pictures and posts as well as make your own. I just can't customize anything or do much else than see what's going on with friends.
Facebook
by Lisadianeengels on 2013/07/15 13:51
I love the fact that I can keep in touch with friends all over the world. Lots of good stuff. I don't like that I can't take pictures off that I'm in if posted by someone else. I also have been spammed by people getting my info. The privacy settings need to be adjusted to accommodate to give permission for photos not approved by me or individual when posted on someone else's wall, etc. the events page says past but doesn't show past birthdays so I miss many birthdays by a day sometimes. Needs that function. Also when someone unfriends you, reasons should be posted... For understanding what happened. Facebook on IPhone shuts down many times when in the middle of something. Thats all for now. I absolutely love Facebook. This is how I keep in touch with my kids as well as friends. I love Facebook but there are many glitches. One when using my IPhone, which is where I use Facebook mostly, the instant text messages pull up my group but does not show the recent messages so I have been unable to be an active participant in my group. I am very frustrated with this because I am missing out in the conversations. I do love being able to keep posted in friends and family. I do not like the businesses in my Facebook. nor the likes I post so my friends see that I am reading their posts, I did not want my other friends to see my likes. That is my business not theirs. Makes me not want to use Facebook or post a like. I would like to make some of people's posts private.
Let 'me have it.

FaceBook? what a piece of cr......eative genius. There has never been an entity in World History that has captured global attention, curiosity, excitement and wonderment that is truly awe inspiring. There should be Rating button - how much do you enjoy FaceBook at this instance in time? "Hey what do you think?" Or "what are you doing?" Can now be answered according to the amount of courage and hutzpa you possess. In a way it Is the ultimate test of strength to the degree of loyalty you have regarding your religion and politics, the two topics which may get you banned or a following in the millions. Tempering one's remarks and enthusiasm again is how daring are you. Never-the-less it is the best instrument to see "what make's .you tick?" Those who want to be heard now can be. Facebook doesn't discriminate against social status, the most sad, most down, most lonely person in the world now can express what ever they want and have an equal chance as anyone to have it read. Many of us just wasn't our placed in the world to be noticed and respected. ThanK You FaceBook creators, you have given the world a remarkable cosmic string go use for the betterment of all. Sometimes only the right words have to be written to changes mind world Peace I wish one day all the people of the world can agree on what that means. If not being able to agree about it then at least being able to discuss it. Yea FaceBook you.'really ok in my little corner of the world
Great but one problem
by B'g Buy'r on 2009/09/02 03:21
I dowloaded the update the minute it came out. I was hoping for the landscape mode which I sorta got. When I'm in chat for instance in landscape mode and I want to swich to my news feed I go to the menu and it is in portrait. I was like okay... So I click news feed still holding my phone in landscape and it enters news feed in portrait and I have to wait a bit for the program to register the position of my phone and it changes. It isn't consistant without the whole program. Another thing I was hoping for was push notifications especially in the chat feature and for notifications and messages. I haven't seen that yet... A couple last things were facebook video capability and chat "errors". 1. Why show their are videos and a play button when you can't view them be cause they aren't compatible yet with the iPhones and iPod touches? 2. When sending chats and staying in the same place (not in the car and no change in serivice) I frequently get a message saying cannot send messages at this time and yet my friend is still messaging me. Resulting in having to close the program and opening it again. (which doesn't always work) despite these few problems I think that this application is a HUGE improvment in the previous version and if they fix these few problems I think we will have a perfect facebook app. There is "one last thing" as a Steve jobs would say, facebook is a lot more useful than Twitter. Twitter isn't worth your time!!
Long review and my solution to login issues
by TheRealBenji_IpodTouch on 2008/10/05 03:15
After the launch of facebooks first app I became very dissapointed with their lack of ingenuity, after flaunting with the idea of just closing my facebook account I decided to wait until the magic little 1 appeared on my app store icon for the update. Now after avoiding the little f button at the bottom of my screen for so long I'm happy to say I downloaded facebook app2 (at school, with their ultra-slow wifi) in hardly any time at all. Then I turned opened it and... It wouldn't login. Dissapointed, I figured it was because I was on campus, and hardly any of the schools I've been to allow access to myspace or facebook so no surprises there (who else resents having their devices limited by a fat techy in a chair?) anyway, after finding the same problem in by room I concluded that the site was busy and found I could login on my moms iPod Touch running 1.1.4 and the original app. I then preceded to turn off my iPod, turn it back on, and sync it to my laptop. Now it works just fine, and as my friends and I rarely turn our iPods off I think this may be the solution to others problems. Now the app works I have yet to come across a feature from the internet version (well at least on that is stupid) that is missing. Uploading, tagging, commenting, messanging and chatting are way easier than they ever were on the computer version. If you really want to know what the app is like, just download it. It's free so you have nothing to lose.
havent had much issues with it but..
by Clenzer1235 on 2012/01/15 04:46
ill have to say i dont understand what these ppl are talking about its been running fine for me and i havent had any complaints except a couple. When you go to someone pictures and view the comments on their picture then scroll to another picture u lose the ability to look at other peoples comments. That and this app needs to support ppl with other versions of facebook on here cause ive been chatting with people that are obviously online but it doesnt show them being online. It might not be the updates fault and might be a feature that i dont know about but it sure is annoying. In past versions my close friends tab has disappeared on me that was annoying dont know why that happen :/ . Also if you could make it to where we could play most of the games you offer that i can only play on my desktop that would be great but i know that requires flash :( . Alternatively you could make seperate apps for each of the major games ppl play on facebook so that we can login using our facebook login info and play our games anywhere we want. Also when i upload more than one picture to my account my friends only see 1 picture and not three at a time like others i have seen. I dont know if theres an option i need to turn on or if im doing something wrong but it is very annoying. You fix those things and honestly I wouldnt have really anything else to complain about. Im sure there are prolly more things that i am missing but i havent come across any
Version 3.4
by Zylluh on 2011/04/18 22:19
This update is terrible the app is very laggy and it crashes frequently. The notifications are also terrible I will be sitting on my couch watching tv and I will hear the ring and it says I have a wall post or other thing but it was from like ten or even a half-hour ago. Either that happens or you don't even get a notification. For example if friends comment on your status it sometimes won't show up. This update is also missing a TON of things that they could incorporate into the app. First of all they need push notifications for the chat instead of just the noise. The noise only happens when you are in the app and your Iphone/Touch is at the lock screen. They also need to add the ability to tag people in statuses. Oh there is also one more bug I forgot to mention. The app doesn't let you post pictures. Once they add these features and fix these bugs they need to do some other stuff. I've only had my iPod for about 2 years and I am going to update to the iPod touch 5g when it comes out but the app needs a new design. They need to make it like widgets and have sliding features. If you slide left it brings you to the news feed and if you slide left then it brings you to chat and have a pull down menu for other things. The only thing that could be left alone is the notifications bar. Once they fix these bugs and add those features/layouts the app will be perfect. P.S. I doubt the new layout will happen due to the fact it would basically kill the app with crashes.

Put back the change the timeline picture on iOS devices change cover photo on iOS back I can't log in I see my post on my wall but not on my stream I wish I can change my cover photo to the app Can you add and change timeline cover photos How do I change my cover photo on my iOS device? Adelante Adam and the app say what you were doing please It's not working on the app idea what you're right what you're doing Nothing is showing up on my newsfeed what's happening Underbite see what you doing at in the category for celebrities and on the pages today like the app crashes when I try to push timeline Adding the app say what you doing Write what you adumbrate what you are doing on the app like listening to drinking watching a movie or TV show eating and how are you feeling that would be awesome Under listening to Adanon automatically from your iPod library that would be cool I'm girl are listening to Adam and a microphone icon and what people are listening to under watching at in the camera feature to scan what people are watching on TV and movies and celebrities and Adam and topics under Schlitter you say what you're doing automatically under listening to watching beating you eating and playing automatically add those activities in from different apps that are requiring you to sign into Facebook that would be I can't download the update on my iPod touch cool and easier
After resisting updating the app for a while...
by bphing on 2013/07/30 18:04
..I finally caved. Seeing far fewer "sponsored" posts now is quite nice, but this update has reintroduced a baffling insistence on switching my news feed back to "Top Stories" mode every time I've been away from it more than a few hours. I don't know about you, but I will NEVER want to read posts in anything other than chronological order (aka "Most Recent"). So, that's pretty irritating and knocks off a star. However, I haven't had problems with crashing, and I appreciate the new "Copy Link" ability when viewing a web page in the app. Sometimes I can also copy a post for quoting purposes (but not always, which puzzles me). This is marginally helpful compared to the desired option: the ability to highlight portions of posted text for Copy/Define. New photo posting options are also more convenient and have some occasionally-useful filters. Haven't quite figured out yet if I can choose albums for them straight from my phone, which would be good. Overall, more functional than it used to be, and could be improved with a few more ease-of-use tweaks and the removal of that silly round, floating Messages icon which you have to drag to hide. (Its tiny collage of participant userpics doesn't help at all to identify the current message if you have multiple similar group messages going, and we already have an unobtrusive Messages icon in the top bar which doesn't need to be swatted out of the way like a fly after every use.)
Hmmm, what do I think of the FB app?
by -Misfit75- on 2013/06/05 18:49
Well, for the most part it's ok. It can be very useful to have it right on your phone and not have to use my phones browser. But I have problems with the messaging function! As I scroll to read longer messages the text disappears and reappears at will! It makes reading longer messages rather difficult! And when I tap a picture to get it to bring it up full screen it sometimes comes up quickly but other times it takes a long time! Sometimes so long that I have to close the app, reboot and restart it. So, what do I think? I think that FB is such a popular social network with so many employees that is now a publicly traded company and makes so much money that they really could do a better job with app development! And this new deal where it is setting goals for you, like "Adding 5 friends", and constantly pressuring you to list more information about yourself needs to go!!! I can set my own goals for what I want my page to be, I'm a grown man! And I can decide what information I want to share, again I'm a grown man! I'm sure they want you to add as much personal information as possible so they can sell it or target you for advertisements!!! And all this recommending pages or people I may know right there at the top of my timeline and news feed needs to go too !!! I don't want to see what you think I should do! I want to see what I added to my page!!! There! That's what I think about FB!!! HAPPY NOW?????!
Present review of FB
by Photo Crazy1 on 2014/12/04 09:44
Great way of reuniting and keeping in touch with friends and relatives. Do not need posts on news page of all the comments and likes of my friends' friends. Leads me to believe that a lot of privacy has been lost. Also too commercial now with all the ads inserted in main part. Also we used to be able to easily hide posts from friends without defriending permanently. In trying to find important posts from friends now it is much too time consuming to scroll past all the garbage. Used to love checking FB a couple times a day. Find myself looking at it less and less and much more discreet in personal comments. My comments haven't changed much. I do find when using phone or iPad app I have difficulty getting to settings to eliminate having their comments or likes of friends appear on my page. Ditto what I recently wrote. Since upgrading this app in Oct 2014, it has gone further downhill. When wanting to add a pic, I used to be able to go to an album in iPhoto, but now I can't. In other words, I would keep all the cute pics for birthdays in one album. Now I have to hunt for a picture. Also, there are ads covering up parts of articles and have trouble closing the ad so I can read the article. Some comments stay the same. Nice to have FB in phone especially when out or traveling. Don't like ads which are hard to close covering up articles. I'm one that is not interested and fast forward TV to skip commercials.
Let Freedom Ring! ...or shut it down.

You asked for a review so don't get mad if your chastised. There have been too many instances where people and friends have mentioned how some of their posts were deleted or just vanished because of their political context. I myself recently had a comment just disappear after posting it. It is becoming more and more apparent that certain political expression is discouraged through censorship. If this be the case, I expect you to be the ultimate example by staying clear of Freedom of Speech & Expression or when you suppress one, you do so for both major party's. Either We The People have the Right to Free Speech or Facebook becomes a "Big Brother", just another leftist media controlling platform deciding what people can or can not post about OUR elected officials or you become the frontrunner, ahead of EVERY News Source by staying clear of We The People and allow us to expose ALL the corruption and injustice that has gripped our great Nation! Facebook should encourage people to question and speak up about OUR government. After all it is our Duty as Americans to do so! But over all, of course I greatly like Facebook. It's an awesome social network, just as long as Facebook stays out of We The People's Right to express our likes and dislikes about how OUR elected officials, on both sides, are or are not doing the Will of the People! Thanks!

I really wish I could give the 5 Star Rating I used to think Facebook deserved! I do love the opportunities of connecting so many different people. To connect with my daughters in other countries is really nice, too. You can put family all together. But, OH, it's a big BUT! But too many things go wrong too often. The 3 that really bother me are reading a friend or family members Post, type out an answer---touch to Post------it DISAPPEARS! Where? I dunno. In the middle of reading, texting, anything, and it Drops me back to my APP Start Up. ???? I dunno. But the most frustrating, disappointing, irritating is when I open Facebook, reach to touch & open for a response, and it flips away before or just as I touch, and its an hour before I find it again! If I keep trying to. If I wait I may not. Today I opened Facebook, to my News Feed automatically, a beautiful child's face was smiling with her new hair style to start the school year. It flipped away. I don't know why or where. Or when I will see the pictures of a middle school granddaughter that only said my daughters name and she had posted 2 new photos. I think I need to just text or message and request that she do them over. I had waited on seeing those. In anticipation. I'm not mad. Or angry. I might have been a little irritated. But I know that I will get them again. Just a disappointed grandma. Now, you don't have to publish this. Just read it and see if you can fix it. Thank you.
Has room for improvement.
by Jesus Christ of Nazareth on 2012/03/23 05:08
Okay so first of all, facebook's mobile iOS app has improved over the years. Overall, I do enjoy using the mobile application as it runs fairly smoothly and does not usually have trouble updating me on what my friends are up to. However, there are several flaws that make this app a pain to use sometimes. The biggest annoyance I have with the application is its chat function. The chat itself runs pretty good. when I minimize my chat to scroll through the news feed, I get a message notification when my friend sends me a message through chat. When I open up my chat box to reply, the red message notification does not go away even after I have replied to their message which I find annoying. I have to go and tap the message notification icon and physically open the message I got the notification from to make the notification to away. That is the biggest issue I have with the app. Along with the chat notification issue, I also find it annoying that the notifications will fail to update you to your latest notifications if you leave your iPad in hibernation for a few hours. I had to completely close and relaunch Facebook in order to get up to date notifications on my iPad. Aside from that, the application works pretty well for me. I hope they update their photo gallery soon as they have done for their browser site as the images now look awful on the new iPad. Also, the icon is still pixilated on the new iPad, please update soon!!
Why can we still not tag?
by M Abercrombie on 2012/06/16 23:58
First, let me state that this app isn't bad. For the most part it gets the job done and it's much less cumbersome than trying to use the "mobile browser" version of Facebook. However, when I'm on a computer in a web browser I can hit the @ symbol while writing a post and tag a person/business so that their name shows up as a link to their profile/page. This is a highly useful feature which has STILL not been included in the iPhone app, despite being out for quite a long time now. What gives? In general, day-to-day, I use the app more than the browser version of Facebook. It is super annoying to have to wait until I can have access to a PC to be able to link to someone in a post. If I'm out at an event and want to "check-in" and tag a business represented at the event (like I was today), I'm out of luck. That business just lost my free advertising because this social app is missing a key social feature... And if I want to tag an artist in a picture that I took on my iPhone, I first have to email the picture to myself, get on a computer, go to the webmail portal, download my picture, then re-upload it on the browser version of Facebook... Running a recording studio, and wanting to tag bands in my pics, I run into this issue almost every day. Again, what gives? You would think that Facebook would think to add one of their most basic and useful features to their iPhone app, wouldn't you?
Some things need to change
by No1grandi on 2012/09/17 15:30
I've been on FB for quite some time. And while I believe in upgrading and moving forward, I do not like all of the changes on FB. If its not broken you don't need to FIX it. Change just for the sake of Change isn't always good. I would prefer to see all my friends personal status updates again... And not have to go to their page and mark that I want to see them. I have over 1,000 friends that I try to stay in touch with. It takes too much time to try to go to their individual pages and mark "close friend" just so I can see their daily updates. And even then, that doesn't always work. I've had to go back several times when I realize I'm not seeing someone on my page and mark that I want to see them on my newsfeed. I really wish that aspect could go back to the way it was before all the "updating FB" became so popular. I also loathe the fact that FB now allows all those "cartoon" pics to be added. I personally will disconnect from anyone that solely posts those things because that's not personal communication and it takes forever to wade thru them. While I will say some are amusing and I can see why some people post them to bring a smile.... Perhaps there could be an "update" where there is a separate page for these things just as there is for personal photos and let the newsfeed be just for personal status updates. I have written all this....realizing FB could care less what I think. Maybe my venting is at least therapeutic.
New update is much to be desired.
by Ewarren534 on 2013/03/27 06:06
Ever since I updated to the newest version, the app has crashed more times than it's worked. And when it does work, it freezes and I must tap links numerous times before it'll begin to load. The feed is INSANELY slow, and only goes back a minimal amount of posts before refusing to load more. Unacceptable. My notifications also take forever to load if they actually show up at all. And I've been getting phantom notifications when there isn't anything about which to be notified. As far as the new layout goes, why are you trying to inject the twitter layout with the icons for feed, messages, profile, and more on the bottom of the screen? The same icons are at the top. Having two is redundant and cumbersome. Pick one. I don't care which. I very much like how you can easily upload more than one picture at a time. Nice change. But pictures seem to be taking far longer to load in this new version as well. I do not use Facebook for the bells and whistles of the app. I use it to keep up with my friends and share my life with them. If I cannot easily do that with the app then it is useless to me, and I find myself drifting to twitter more often to interact with friends. My advice is to focus on what your customer needs most out of this product: speed of the app to enhance speed in communication, less APP and more us. I was much happier when the app looked more plain and actually worked correctly. This reboot should get the boot. And fast!
Pretty good but could be better
by Allaboutappleandapps on 2012/09/07 01:06
I wanted to love this app and give it 5 stars - I really did, mainly because I love Facebook. I am, like many others, addicted to it. SO it's absolutely wonderful to have an iOS app for Facebook. The problem is, the app is lacking several features. For example, users cannot update many parts of their own profile including "about me", likes/interests, and several other things. In an age in which people can live with an iPad or iPhone as their only technology, it would seem to me that the app ought to be able to do everything you can do in the web browser. Unfortunately this is not the case. Fortunately I also have computers, or I suppose you could use Safari on the iOS device, but why shouldn't the app do everything. For its part, everything the app does, it does very well. I like it and use it every day. I would have given it 4 stars rather than 3, except that the Facebook Team does not seem to have a direct way to actually get support and receive a guaranteed response. All the contacts result in either bug reports or feedback submissions which make no promise of any kind of response. If I didn't love Facebook, and if I were just judging this app as an app, I'd keep looking, since it lacks what I consider to be some essential capabilities, not the least of which is actual app tech support. Yet as I said, the app does work well, and it has become an essential part of my iOS devices and my life.
"BEST" Social Application in the World!!!
by Abercrombie10 on 2013/01/06 16:27
FB has brought about a few "positive" results for myself, as well as, for a couple of family members. I utilize this very App in the best fashion possible, such as, locating long, lost family & friends of which without this AWESOME App this very outcome would NOT have resulted as I attempted to locate in the past prior to the creation & development of FB and zero results came about. Similar outcomes resulted with a couple of family members, as well!!!!!!! It's all in how you utilize & engage in this social App, as occasionally, I will hear negative comments about FB and how it supposedly got them into trouble in some way or another??? Well, it's NOT FB that gets people into trouble, it's people who get themselves into trouble; they're NOT using FB in a smart way instead they're, no doubt, putting their lives right out there where everybody can view it, well, that's NOT FB's fault, rather, that's a bad decision and/or judgement call on behalf of that particular individual who is blaming FB versus blaming themselves(typical, though)!!!!!!! I LOVE FB but know & understand how to utilize for my "benefit" and the positive "benefit" of others, too but only with their prior approval, of course!!!!! "THANK YOU" FACEBOOK(FB) for developing such a social App(#1in the WORLD) that has brought many POSITIVE Outcomes & Results to many people's lives!!!!!!!!!!
Some good additions, some bad changes
by CoryD81 on 2013/04/30 23:36
First of all I like the new format of the news feed and being able to select different feeds from the top of the screen and the new chat heads on the iPhone are nice, but I have had more random crashes than ever before-even on initial startup, but also performing other simple functions requiring a change or refresh of the page. My biggest issue is with 'pages' I can no longer go on a page and read 'posts by others' which is huge for me on a certain page I contribute to frequently. I can still post to the page but I never see it until I get a notification about a comment or like of that post. Am I missing something with that? Or am I just screwed on this version until hopefully it changes back to have access to what other people post on pages. I also have some questions about the chat features that have always boggled my mind, I can see when people are online or how long it's been since they have except for one or two of my friends and they can see my time since being online until a few days after this update one of them randomly noticed that my 'time offline' disappeared without changing anything, and well after the update. Overall I like the news feed and how this works with friends, but I'm extremely disappointed with how 'pages' show up now and the lack of features and ability to see the entire content of them
I like it.
by baayyliee on 2011/10/12 17:33
I had a horrible time downloading the update. first the app wouldn't load, so I restarted my iPod. that didn't work, so I deleted & reinstalled the app. still wasn't working so I restarted my iPod again. that time my ipod froze on the apple logo & I had to restore it >.< I think part of the freezing was my fault though, as I was really running out of space & may have not had enough for the update. anyways, the new interface is nice though I don't understand why one section is called "favorites" when I can't change them myself. I'd like another little thing like we had before where we could add a person & quickly go to their profile & everything. just more customization with it, really. opening links is a lot faster now which is great. I love being able to quickly see a notification or message & then jump right back into what I was doing. I am having some problems with a notification showing up when there is nothing new, though. that gets a little annoying but over all I really like the changes. I don't see why everyone has to get so upset every time Facebook makes a change... this app shouldn't have such a low rating. edit - okay nevermind. if people are have that bad of problems then it does deserve a low rating. xD please get another update out quickly.
Mostly Useful
by Tari Mannello on 2013/03/12 23:41
How is it possible that with an iPhone 5 and LTE and wifi and 100 megabits per second download speeds the Facebook app still sometimes takes 30 seconds to load a photograph? Or doesn't update properly? Or doesn't delete messages when deleted? Or crashes? How is it possible that I have to refresh my messages several times sometimes before it shows me new ones? How is it possible that in 2013 I still cannot actually delete messages on the app but have to archive instead? Admittedly this app gets better and better to use and easier to use each time, and I am super excited about having direct implementation iOS 6, however there are things that have not been taken care of that in my opinion that should've been handled five years ago. Kind a like PayPal who doesn't have an iPad app yet… But the iPhone app has been out for years. Integration into the iPhone is nice, but you cannot tag people or mention peoples names, you can simply post or post photographs. Obviously at this point everyone in the world has the app it's not really a question of whether you download it or not so I hope that engineering just reads this and makes the necessary improvements, other than that, Facebook is a really great experience and very useful to grow my life and business on. It's an amazing tool to connect that truly has shaped this era.
How can you be good yet bad?
by Κunta Kinte your name is Toby on 2012/09/02 13:13
Well guys I have to say that the layout of the new Facebook app is wonderful and much easier to navigate. They have made it much more user friendly now which is a plus. Finally they have returned to the alphabetized friends list no longer this random friend list they would show you before so now it is much easier to find your friends. Sadly though with all the improvements they have also gone down by taking away certain key features. Such as the headache to delete messages. You may think you can not delete them but you actually can, just don't try it from the actual messages center there it won't let you. You have to go into the chat to actually delete well not delete actually archive them because Facebook seems to like to keep a record of all your conversations (don't say anything that can be used against you in a court of law). Another thing that bothers me is the inability now to change my cover photo from my phone. Seriously I have to wait to get on my PC to change it? So if I take a picture on my phone and I want to use that as my cover photo. That means I have to upload it to my PC or directly to Facebook then log into through my PC and change it there. Couldn't make it more of a pain guys. Overall some good changes but the bad bring it down so I give it a 3 out of 5. Which maybe still a Lil too much. Maybe 2 1/5 if we ha the option.
Great tool for keeping in touch......BUT.........!!!!!!!
by Their Nana on 2013/01/13 00:45
I love Facebook for finding people I have known and WANT to keep in touch with. I have stayed with Facebook for years, through changes, upgrades, etc. Lately it seems that changes aren't necessarily for the best, and make it more difficult to manage information and feel secure. MOST IMPORTANTLY, however, I found out recently that if you really have a major problem with Facebook, SUPPORT IS NON-EXISTENT. My Facebook account was attacked because I clicked on a link sent from a friend's account regarding tickets from Southwest Airlines. Facebook (rightly so) locked my account, as the attacker was accessing my friend list and spamming. However, although I asked REPEATEDLY for assistance, searched for help and answers, called every number I could find, I received only two replies from Facebook - one asking for verification of who I was (again, rightly so), and one email to advise that my account had been restored and my access granted. Not true - as I was NEVER able to access my account again, and NEVER received another reply from Facebook, although I emailed and called several times per day for days!!! I lost my account, all of my data, access to friends, pages, areas, etc., both free and purchased, that I had built up over the years. Also noted: "Help" information links do not necessarily contain correct information. NOT HAPPY!!!!!!! If my friends and I find another app to replace this, we will definitely try it!
Love/hate relationship
by Gracemomlett on 2013/07/10 12:58
Facebook is Facebook, an ever-changing forum that challenges the obsessively social members of society to conform to the learning curve. Why can't I treat my liked pages like friends and get notifications from the ones I choose? And if this is already an option, why does it require rocket science to figure out how to do it? Why must I restart the app when I click on stuff, sometimes? Servers in overload or is my ram the problem? And why does fb take me back to the beginning of my feed when I follow a rabbit trail? Is someone laughing maniacally at me every time I have to scroll back through it all to get back where I was? I understand the need for occasional updates, but can future changes involve less automatic availability of my info to the masses, and feature more emphasis on the protection of my privacy? And why can't I go back into my own posts and find stuff I put there? Sometimes I post things so I have easy access to them later. If you're going to erase stuff from my page, can you at least give me a heads-up first so I can back it up? Do I sound annoyed? I guess I could have continued on in frustration, a slave to my appreciation for all the good things about Facebook, but since you asked for my opinion...oh, and how many times should I hit Submit before my review is posted and the "Write a review" option goes away? We're you just waiting til I asked that question?
What happened?
by Alfonso Huerta on 2014/08/20 15:03
The idea behind Facebook is probably the best thing about it. Then the reality of making money has made it frustrating to use. I am not like the average user on Facebook. I use Facebook to stay connected with people I actually know in real life. I don't follow celebrities, organizations, or news sites. I don't like every single post that pops up on my almost useless timeline. Every time I log into the app, I have to switch to the most recent. I don't care for the "top stories". I just want to see all the new posts since the last time I logged in, not all the likes. How is that new information. I say useless because the same posts continue to appear on my timeline every time someone likes a post. I just want to see the latest post. I don't I care if someone liked someones post from a week ago today. I wished they would let people customize their newsfeed. I like that my own wife's posts don't appear on my timeline. What I started doing is going into my friends pages that don't appear on my timeline to see what they post. Also, why the hell would I want to use messenger. If people wanted to contact me they can do it on my Facebook wall or they can text me. I am not going to download another app that will have the same function as someone texting me or posting on my wall. I rarely post things and I don't share my personal information on social sites. I just basically use Facebook as an active address book.
Freezes, updates endlessly, shuts down without reason, hate the ads!
by alpha1me on 2013/05/23 12:48
*THIS IS AN UPDATE TO MY REVIEW FROM SEVERAL MONTHS AGO: Nothing has changed. It still freezes constantly, shuts down without reason, updates endlessly which prevents you from doing anything until it decides it's ready to quit wigging. And, I STILL HATE THE ADS! If I want to shop, I know where to go. I have enough of a brain to not need suggestions. Don't we get bombarded enough with that kind of stuff on TV? That is why I cut the cord from cable and do Netflix! Fix this thing! It's near unusable some days. Previous review: You know, if I wanted to shop I know where to go on the web to do so, or I can put on my shoes and go to a real store. I hate seeing ads or as you call them "suggestions" on my page. It is almost enough to make me leave once and for all. Get rid of the ads on my page! If you want them on the side bar as in the past so be it, but not on my page!!!!! Also, the app freezes up and/or shuts down constantly. At times it will attempt to update and get stuck in the updating status until I close the app. I can open it back up and it will still continue updating indefinitely. The only way to make it stop is to either uninstall and reinstall the app or shut my iPad completely off and the cut it back on. Can't say it's my WiFi strength, tested at 20+Mbps. OVERALL, I CAN LIVE WITH THE FREEZING, SHUTTING DOWN, CONTINUOUS UPDATING OVER THE DANG ADS!!!!!! GET RID OF THE ADS!!!!!
Too many modifications
by Meshell222 on 2013/08/02 13:31
So many updates so many modifications/upgrades are becoming overwhelming. Facebook constantly needs to be updated and its pretty annoying. Though it would b nice for bug fixes to not be necessary so often after updates that modify and upgrade the program. Though I personally liked FB better when it was simple with no timeline. I don't need to chat with anyone through my FB app. And I certainly don't need to be on FB 24/7 using all the fancy updates. I like to be able to quickly check in and see what my contacts r up to. My biggest pet peeve is the fact that u can't prevent anyone from posting embarrassing pixz. And Cyber bullying on Facebook is growing in large volumes an there seems to b no way to prevent it. Many young impressionable Tweens/teens are suffering the repercussion. FB needs to do something about it. In the meantime I am just going to stick with FB on my PC rather than my phone especially since I can't accidentally like something with my mouse. Added comment: One feature that is annoying is when hiding friend requests. They r hidden for a reason and don't need to be highlighted on the friends page. Now the friend suggestion is even more in your face and when u click on see more it takes u to the area where u can see all ur hidden requests. Please remove all of this. It's too much. Especially for people who want it simple and don't need to be constantly adding new contacts.
Too many glitches or bad programming
by Chief O on 2013/02/22 04:21
I don't like the program on a few areas. I setup to receive notifications when my wife makes posts but now I don't get them. Last couple months I would receive a text message notification and warn me to keep on I had to reply. I would reply every time per the instructions to keep on my messages and then it showed I would continue to receive messages. This happened many times within five days or less and then it would happen again. I did this multiple times. I recently went to my page on my PC and again turned on my notifications (15 Feb) but then again on 19 Feb it was off again. This is BS to keep making me and others keep turning on something I already turned on. Today, 22 Feb I see my wife did some posts but I have not received any notifications. I don't like that it only loads a few posts and then I have to select to load older posts. People should be able to preset a number of days to preload such as 30 or 60 days, not just 5 posts that were all done in less than an hour. My biggest problem is access to an account for a deceased person. The surviving person or police should have access granted based on a valid police report just like insurance companies or stolen cars with on-star. Last, I saw the story of the 104 year old woman and the fact she can't use her real age. Facebook MUST change to allow her to use her real age!
Crashes too often; doesn't deliver content; push notifications almost never send.
by autermatic on 2013/07/04 16:29
Developers, here's your moneymaker: The more on my newsfeed that I have to scroll through, the more ad content I'm willing to put up with. So; if the person is on my friends list, PUBLISH ALL OF THEIR STATUS UPDATES TO MY NEWSFEED. I only get consistent status updates from maybe four people on my friends list; either you've run everyone else away, or you're failing to deliver status updates from all my friends. (Oh and sometimes the App refuses to load any updates from more than just a day ago. Again: more content means more traffic for your business partners.) If I open a shared link halfway through my news feed, when I return I have to start loading all posts again from the very most-recent. Instead, I'll just stop using FB for the day. (You might have fixed this already, but since I've already almost given up on your App I wouldn't know. I'm sure you're not trying to lose even more consumers though. You'll notice every front-page review from recent dates - ALL of them - are one-star reviews.) Push notifications almost never send -- there is no discernible pattern to why they work sometimes and sometimes don't. When I move from the App to a different App, then re-open Facebook, it will just crash. This results in the previously-mentioned having to re-load all the data on my newsfeed which I've already seen, if I want to continue browsing. Instead I abandon FB for the day.
Privacy policies
by CookMom03 on 2013/10/21 14:39
I love the App and love Facebook! I'd say its perfect other than picture privacy settings! I believe your pictures should be able to be protected to the fullest extent!!! For those that don't care they don't have to put the settings in place, but for us that do care it would be so comforting to know that my pictures cannot be copied, or shared by anyone and can't be even seen by anyone who isn't a friend! I love to share my family events with those I love and with Facebook it's so easy but I worry so much about who can see my pictures through friends pages or by someone that may choose to stalk my page! I keep all settings as private as possible and instead if helping to protect our children and private family photos Facebook is doing the opposite by getting rid of more and more private settings!!! Facebook would get 10 stars in my book if they could make these simple changes that people like me could have the option to make our private life more private!!! There are tons of good people is this world and just as many bad! Child predators, people who steal your photos for fake profiles, people looking for personal information to steal identities, and so many more!! Please fix our Facebook so we can make our stuff more private and feel more secure!!! Not the other way around!!!
What are you talking about???
by Jazarrr on 2012/08/26 20:02
I have no clue what some people are talking about when it comes to some features. You can still save pics.. Just tap and hold the pic. You can still share pics... There is a little icon by the comment and and like buttons. You can search for people other than your friends and the search is much faster than before... Just type a random name and see. You can still delete posts by swiping them sideways. You can set profile pics... Just tap and hold and of your pics or one you're tagged in. You can update existing albums... Just go to album and tap the + in the upper right corner. You lose out on landscape view, but I dont know anyone who actually uses it. You can't update cover pic... But that makes sense because uploading a cover pic on your phone looks COMPLETELY different from when you update from PC. You lose out on being able to tag existing photos but you can tag any new photos you add. App is much faster. Pics are much better and faster to load. New gestures are very nice. You can leave conversations in your inbox (I love that they enabled that... Don't you hate it when someone adds you to some useless convo you don't wanna be in and you couldnt removed yourself till you got home?!). I'd say this is my favorite update thus far. The gain certainly outweighs the loss.
Posting to a friend's wall
by KCMadson on 2013/09/26 16:03
Is it just me or is anyone else having to go through six steps to be able to get to a friend's timeline to post on their wall?? I have no "Friends" list or icon other than by swiping the screen to the left. Then, when I do and find their name and touch it it takes me straight to the Messages screen vice their timeline. If I want to post to their wall I have to touch on their name at the top of the message screen which then tells me about them then I have to touch "More" to get the "View Timeline" option to pop up. Then I have to touch "View Timeline." Wow, finally to their wall! But, lets not forget, there is still one more step before finally being able post something...having to touch "Write Post" (which obviously is no different than before.) But what a pain!! Am I missing something? I realize I am still only operating on iOS6.2 but geez!! I have a handful of navigational icons at the bottom of the Newsfeed screen but none of them say "Friends" or "View a Timeline." Would rather have that than the "More" icon in that row!! Oh, and the other annoyance? ...after going through all those steps, when you're done and go back to the Newsfeed, the picture bubble of the person who's wall you just posted on is now on your screen. You have to do yet one more thing and slide their bubble to the bottom of your screen to make it disappear!! Frustrating!! Either tell me how to accomplish this with minimal steps like before or PLEASE FIX it!
Title
by Nickname17238893215 on 2014/06/24 20:08
This app has been making me very angry. Every time that I get on Facebook through this app, it will randomly go to my home screen. I can't use links because it does the same thing when I click on them. I don't enjoy having to scroll through my newsfeed over again to get to more posts when the app quits on me. Game requests- they are horrible. If I had any interest in playing them, I would have started playing them hundreds of game requests ago. I disabled many of the games I could be notified for, but I am not able to disable them all. Another thing that I dislike is other people liking things and what they liked showing up on my newsfeed. I really don't care if they liked some stupid Teenager Post that I have already seen ten times. Also, I dislike how the chat is set up on the app. Instead of saying which users are currently on Facebook, I have a favorites list. The thing with that list is, it is not based off of how often I message them. I would like to see which users are currently on Facebook, not a random list of people that are not. However, I do like Facebook, I just don't like the Facebook app. The website is amazing on a laptop, just not on most mobile devices. If I were to rate Facebook as a website and not an app, I would give it a higher rating. The app needs a lot of work. The creators of Facebook have almost perfected the website, but haven't perfected the app.
Keeps getting worse
by Thot_Killer7 on 2014/08/11 10:17
I have recently gotten my Facebook hacked and I'm sure it's not the last. I wanted to send my best friend a message on how to help me since I have never gotten hacked but I couldn't because I had to download the stupid Messenger app. I downloaded it. And then I saw my messages blow up and saw that my angry friends were telling me that they have received spam on comments and really weird messages from me that I have never sent. I told them I got hacked and told me it was ok. Then I messaged my friend and he told me to change my password which I did. Then I see that 2 people accepted friend requests I did not send. Then I checked that my hacker had sent over 100 friend requests!!! I had to delete them all and I got a notification that I got blocked from sending requests for a few weeks. Really?!?! I was already having a stressful day and I had to deal with this. The stupid hacker could have read all my messages and private things. Please fix with an antivirus or something like that to prevent future hacks. Another problem I have is with the messenger app. I don't want to download it but now it's MANDATORY to download it. I never had a problem with it as I used a tablet in the past and I would use the chat heads, no problem but I got a new iPod and it won't let me use chat heads. The chat heads were easier as I could stay on the Facebook app and still send messages. I don't want to go from Facebook to another app just to read my messages. Again please fix
Facebook review
by Holiday417 on 2013/02/20 03:56
I am extremely happy to have the Facebook app for on the go. It lets me view most everything. That is one problem, there are some things that do not show up on my news feed on my phone. I don't even know they are there unless I log on using a computer. Examples being birthday notifications and event invitations. Events cannot be made on this feature either. Nor can i modify or delete comments made by other people on anything on my timeline. This can be rather frustrating as people do not always post/comment things I want everyone to see, or that I care to see. Profile pictures cannot be changed on this app. And I'm not sure if it actual Facebook or my phone but I cannot turn my pone sideways to get a wider screen or keypad and I find it extremely frustrating to type on even smaller letters. And one general frustration with Facebook is the news feeds no longer show up in order. I can have a post from 3 days ago and then "just now" and then 3 minutes ago. No apparent order to how they show up. I am pleased with simplicity of adding photos with this app though. Also, upon reading other reviews I have realized the slowing down of the app must be the app itself. This is very frustrating a I cannot view pics or enlarge posts often. I thought it was my Internet, but given he common complaint i see that is not the case.
Some helpful suggestions
by Marisa HB on 2013/06/27 19:32
Easy to use, intuitive, convenient. The couple of areas I would improve upon would be: When a picture is uploaded it is not automatically made public. It's a huge bother to have to remember to go back & change the privacy settings on every single pic individually. I would suggest having an option in Privacy Settings where you can set a default of who can see any pic you upload, then if you wish to modify that, you can. Secondarily, I've noticed that on the mobile FB app you don't have the ability to delete a post. It would be nice to be able to do that. Thirdly, it would be great to be able to edit a status, rather than having to delete & repost. This is especially disappointing when the status already has likes & shares, because those are lost. Lastly, it would be a convenient upgrade if it were possible to add pics to an already posted status. Maybe a button named "add pics" or just use the existing pic icon. For instance, if you posted a status saying you we're somewhere or doing something, and then later on had some pics of that place or activity, it would be great to be able to upload those pics to that status as opposed to creating a new status to post the pics in. Thank you for reading/considering my feedback. :)
If I could give zero stars I would
by Tsurratt on 2014/12/02 11:12
This app, in all honesty, deserves at least three, maybe four stars. However, with the multitude of problems that users have with the management of the app from the removal of messages, the attempts to force a second app on us, the near removal of the most recent feature, and horrible loading and freezing times, I think that it's obvious what's going on. Ever since facebook went public, the company and its product has gotten worse and worse. Pages that have nothing wrong with them are flagged and blocked because some people don't like the message. Ads are everywhere, and facebook decided that ad space is more important than friend updates. This is no longer a social media site; its a social experimentation site. Facebook has been caught experimenting on users through newsfeed manipulation before, and I wouldn't be surprised if that's what all of this nonsense is. The problems that everyone has are easily circumvented, but it's a waste of time and space. Forcing people into a message app is an attempt to create more revenue. Removing the most recent and assaulting users with ads is an attempt to create revenue. I guarantee you mark zuckerberg doesn't use this app; he probably has the app we all want this one to be. As soon as another social media site comes out with the same features, and it will be soon, Facebook will start down the same road MySpace and the chat rooms from the old days went: into the archives.
Jumping the gun
by Stone Temple Pilot on 2013/07/15 02:42
It's a little slow to update when you re-open it on an iPad. I can't really use it at all on my phone, which is a Droid. It's still okay on my laptop. It would be nice if the interfaces were the same or at least a lot more similar to each other between devices, because some things I can do with the app on my phone (when it worked, anyway) I can't do with the iPad or laptop, and vice versa. Also, the only way to get rid of the number of "Close Friend" updates, I have to open the list with my laptop. I can see the list with my phone and iPad, but it doesn't "count" that I looked at it so it will still say I have X amount of updates I haven't seen. It's a crapshoot to look to see if there really is something new on there or not, plus the list doesn't refresh very well. The "chat heads" don't appear while I'm using another app on my iPad, nor do they hang around on the home screen until dismissed, so I have no idea I have a message until it's too late (I read on my iPad and nothing happens to notify me if I have a new message). Basically, Facebook seems to be adding all sorts of new things, but not making sure that whatever new option they made works and syncs across all platforms before throwing it out there. There should also be more games from Facebook available as apps that sync between devices like Candy Crush Saga and Bubble Witch Saga. Those are the only two that I know of that can synchronize progress between devices.
FB new update
by Miasavlei on 2014/12/20 00:05
I use FB daily usually & for the most part I enjoy it. I have a few issues with the constant blocking me from friend requesting just because a couple people may say they don't know me since you give them that option now so you think I'm spamming. Ridiculous! & block me from FB altogether sometimes & you say it's for 30 days but it ends up being closer to 60 or more. & if I choose to deactivate my account temporarily, you delete my photo album & other criteria & I struggle to get it all back again. & other glitches in your imperfect system. But regarding the new update, there are pros & cons, mainly sometimes it won't let you create a new photo album & upload to it. Sometimes it won't let you delete comments on threads. It won't let you do much of what you could before. The only positive thing I can say about it is that it gives you the option to speed back up to top to new posts in newsfeed & speed down to new comments on threads. Though you slide around too much viewing pics. Personally, my main complaint is that it won't let me see 'most recent' posts. Instead, it shows in my newsfeed what FB thinks I want to see. In turn, I miss tons of my friend's posts. I have to go to their page to see their activity. Just show us everyone, not just some people! More cons than pros but hey, FB is free huh? For now anyway. Peace!
It works, mostly.
by foold on 2011/05/20 00:38
For starters let me say that when the Facebook app works, it works well. With the small exception of not being able to tag people in posts (a feature that would be a GREAT addition) you can do most everything else that you could do on a regular computer. However, it only works 60% of the time. If its not being slow, laggy, or otherwise unresponsive, its randomly logging you out (and I do stress RANDOMLY, I can find no pattern in the log outs). Getting back in is just as difficult, involving quitting the app via the quick switch menu accessed by double tapping the home button, but only AFTER you have typed in your information and waited at least 10 seconds to make sure you don't receive the all to frequent "try again later" message. The notification system is poor at best, showing some notifications but not others. Looking at, and commenting on photos is a nightmare, don't even bother using the app for that. The one redeeming feature that makes the app worthwhile is the creepy-if-you-think-about-it-too-hard "check in" system, which works fairly well. For all it's flaws, however, the app remains superior to trying to use the iPhone browser, and in the end it IS a free app. If I were paying for it, I'd be outraged. But I'm not, so I'm not. I can only hope that they fix the bugs in the system especially the relatively recent one of randomly logging out.
New and recurring problems with every update
by Nefretari2 on 2012/04/14 00:37
With every update I keep hoping that it will get better, but I am consistently disappointed. The latest update, 4.1.1, is terrible! I get notification indicators, but I can't see my notifications, it's incredibly slow, and keeps crashing. I should not have to keep logging out then back in to make it work. I also should not have to keep deleting and reinstalling all the time either. Another complaint that I have has to do with the sorting of my newsfeed (all updates since the introduction of Timeline).I like seeing my friends' most recent posts, which is why I dislike that the default sort is Top Stories. I follow some news pages, and with the sort defaulting to Top Stories the post that I really care about, those posted by my friends, are buried way down at the bottom of my feed. I would prefer the default to be Most Recent, with the option to choose Top Stories. Especially since the app tends to freeze or crash before I can't scroll down to what I find important. I DON'T NEED FACEBOOK TO TELL ME WHAT'S IMPORTANT! I know what's important to me, and no matter how complicated of an algorithm is written, it will never be able to intuit that. I understand that this is a free app for a free site, but honestly, I would be willing to pay a couple of bucks for the app if it meant that the product was reliable and bug free. I also know that no one at Facebook will actually read this, but one can always hope.
Ok but needs some work
by fireflyhmk on 2012/11/17 16:57
There are several things going awry with this app. I have to go between the app and safari to get things done. It typically works better from safari for most things. There are such inconsistency's between the two. The app should be up to date and super awesome compared to the mobile site version. Some things I can recall are... The newsfeed isn't always up to date not to mention you can't stop following someone from your phone. As well it seems to zone in on the same ppl. Out of all my friends why do I only get to see a handful of them? I've missed engagements, births etc. Fb should reclassify what qualifies for "important". Picture tagging doesn't work. Events are a disaster. If you RSVP no, you can't write a post any longer. You can't share events with friends most times and it won't let you add invitees for events. Pretty sure you can't create an event from your phone unless using safari. (I get confused which one will do what!) and you aren't able to change the event picture at all. Also I think there should be a way to add event to your calendar. (google calendar would be great) Can't delete or edit post from app, have to go to safari for that. I don't have issues with it crashing as others have mentioned. Functions fine just has some user friendly things that would be helpful if improved.
READ VERY TRUE
by Lola lowsen on 2012/11/22 21:56
ok it is good a little different than website and in a bad way website better but the app is still good but needs an update and I prefer the website I think you will because te website is way better and easier to use but if you are always on the go and just need to see what your friends are up to then this app is great but I think the app should use an update because can take a wile to load but with the latest update it has been a lot faster when loading but the app should be updated so if u are always at home use the website if u r always on the go the app will be fine I am giving it three stars because the website is better an this app can take some time to load but as I said with the latest update it is a lot faster than before but if u don't want to go through the trouble of looking up Facebook or something than this app is perfect oh and FYI Facebook is so last year if you want to be hip and cool get instagram it has never crashed on me and loads right away so check out instagram or twitter celebrities aren't on Facebook or never post so if all u want to do is keep track of celebrities then go on twitter which is kinda 6 months ago and instagram is def in and hip celebs are on both but NOT Facebook for all of u who read my review thank you I know it's long but at least it tells u what's in and what's out
Disappointed but hopeful
by Muzkwriter on 2013/01/19 11:16
I find it annoying that I am limited to Like and Comment, instead of being able to share pictures and statuses. Also I don't like that the feed is random rather than chronological. I think I preferred just going through the Internet, rather than the iPad app for Facebook. Well, FB asked me to rate it, but it already had this comment before I started. (It may be a comment I made sometime ago!) I do find that they have improved some opportunities to share, but it seems to be random. I prefer chronological and I do prefer making my own choices from a set selection. Still haven't figured out the privacy settings, too many questionable hoops to jump through. FB is such a big endeavor, I guess they are still sorting and developing. Categorizations: the Encouragers, the Crazies, the Lonely, the Moms trying to keep up with their families' lives, the Networkers, the Scalpers, the Wicked, the curious, and the bored kids. Love is needed, and I am thinking that only the perfect love of Jesus will do! Thanks FB for inventing this social media, trusting that you will keep improving! I think that the FB iPad app has improved, but keep working, because the iPad is fun, yet addictive. I never dreamed I could be a techie at 65. :-)

by SeanZillaSF on 2013/02/06 13:59
When there's an app (or 2 or 3 or 5) to access FB mobile, it might be a clue that brings to mind the Mother of Invention. "Quickly" allows you to change your header (but can't access photos from your mobile device). Then there's messenger, etc. Yeah, FB is fine, it's fun, but the app is soooo slow! I've yet to find info on how to make it faster. It's usually the app and very inconsistent. 1/6 of the time it's great. Not a good average in a world that asking us to move at light speed. I've finally started to explore Google+. It's geared more for adults. That said, 5 years in, I'll always love FB. Finally, my greatest concern is the lack of privacy. When you read mainstream articles about FB co-owners skipping town over taxes owed, or the gathering of personal info and trends, and when you you hear that employers are demanding your FB password, it tells you your living in a very creepy world. Marks great, and incredibly generous and a friend to the right side of history, so I do appreciate this powerhouse being socially responsible. However, anyone that thought FB was worth even 25% of what it went public for is an astronomical idiot. And please don't get me started in Billion Dollar Baby, INSTAGRAM. They alleged they don't technically own everything you post, but why else buy an app that filters are being mimicked left and right? Frankly in surprised Getry Images hasn't bought the lot. Signed, The Village Idiot.
Love my Facebook
by Wanda-hoondi hoonda-wandi on 2013/01/01 02:33
I am an original user... Signed up when it first came out to keep in touch with my friends overseas. It was great. We had used many formats to try to accomplish this. None had lasted or if they have, they weren't effective at keeping us in contact. Fb has been awesome. Then, just when I had found all the friends I thought possible, I came across an old school friend. It was like winning the lottery. Through this one friend, I found a jackpot of friends from long ago, and got to see how people were doing as well as their families. By this time Fb was on the move and people were signing up left and right. I found a whole new group of overseas friends who hadn't been on Fb originally. Then, alas, this last election season, I was able to meet people who share my ideas and have similar thoughts and take action on them. It's very exciting. I think the privacy is excellent! Children are not allowed, and when they get onto fb, their parents almost always know (which makes it a bad parent issue, not an Internet issue). I hope I have made my point. I hope Fb lasts. We love the free games, love the sharing of pics, status, bdays, it's better than sending emails. Thank u Zuck, I think you are doing fine.
FB = the next MySpace?
by Paying Customer 123 on 2013/03/19 16:29
SUGGESTION: Everyone must spend less time reading and writing these ratings and try sending constant direct messages to Facebook. That said, I have 60 seconds to waste now... I rarely take this much time to rate free apps, but this in not free for me, I use their paid services. It is appalling for a company to produce such terrible mobile apps after the IPO incident. They must never read these ratings or don't care. I wonder if even the direct contacts and suggestions make any difference. With all the competition springing up around them, FB may well be left in the dust. One well executed new service could turn FB into another MySpace quickly. It may be a free app for most, but the business ads/services sold (which I have now placed on hold), forced suggestions into the news feed, etc... are a major reason FB exists. Many say not to complain about a free app, but to use their paid services is quite expensive considering how unhappy my target audience is with FB and how many are leaving. Everyone knows how all the 5 star ratings that simply say "this is good" are built up to draw attention from the 1 star posts with long detailed messages like this and detailed complaints from "actual users" about specific items that need to be addressed. CONTACT FB DIRECTLY TO CLEARLY LIST THE SHORTCOMINGS THAT EVERY REAL USER AGREES MUST BE ADDRESSED. If not the same old complaints will roll through these ratings month after month, year after year.
Why Facebook, why?
by PrincessAlly45 on 2014/05/06 14:52
With all the brilliant people you have working for you why can't you make an app without all the useless bells and whistles that will load quickly, allow you to go back to where you left off on your newsfeed, photos, and groups? Please fix notification alerts after clicking one notification all of them appear as read, this results in many missed comments and posts. When you receive a notification on a post from a group it takes you to the group page not the post your notification showed you then you have to hunt through a lot of group post to find it, often it's lost forever. Why not directly link it like newsfeed posts. Please allow the user to choose top stories or most recent and don't keep changing it back to top stories every time you open news feed. And for the love of God stop continuously updating the news feed. It is incredibly annoying to be in the middle of a friends long winded post and the app decides to refresh and take you to the top of the newsfeed. Not a good feature at all. And for goodness sake make a dislike button. Oh and the emojis on the computer look awful. Why not allow the cool stickers you have on messenger to be used on all posts. All that money and genius behind Facebook and you can't make a beautiful fast, functioning app with cool looking emojis and a dislike button? Hire me as a product tester before releasing such crappy updates.
