Annoying notifications
by CYNtiedan on 2019/04/24 22:56
I turned off all the unnecessary notifications yet I still receive 3-4 trash notifications each day.
Camera
by Dharper82 on 2019/04/24 22:49
I can not take pictures in comments... I have camera access and read and write permissions turned on but I still can’t take a picture to send in comments... I have to leave Facebook go to camera to take a picture and come back hoping it didn’t update the feed so I can send a picture.... FIX IT!!!
Facebook still the king Of making changes nobody wants.
by Lovepirate14 on 2019/04/24 22:48
The latest update has made navigating Facebook on an Iphone+ very annoying. They removed the ability to swipe up to get out of a picture/video and now I have to reach all the way up to the top left corner to physically hit a back arrow. Not sure why they feel the need to constantly tweek things that aren’t broken.
Groups glitches
by Mhew on 2019/04/24 22:38
I am an admin in a couple of groups. Since we no longer have the Groups app, I’ve been using the Facebook app to moderate. As of this past weekend (4/20/19) I could no longer turn off comments on member posts and my fee was not in order. This was all on mobile. Desktop seems to work fine, but I’m not always on a computer. Another admin complained of the same issue with her group feed on mobile. I could not find how else to report these glitches, so I’m leaving it here as a review, in hopes that this will be corrected soon. Thanks.
Similar items in my newsfeed
by Most Recent Viewer on 2019/04/24 22:27
Hey Facebook, how about just showing me what my friends are posting instead of having a suggested post every third post on my time line. If I wanted to see stuff you recommended, I would just go to the internet. On Facebook all I want to see is what friends post not what you think I ought to see.
Most Recent Button
by Jhoff1728 on 2019/04/24 22:23
For the last 3 weeks my Most Recent button doesn’t show my posts in chronological order. Same order as the Top Stories. I have deleted and re-added the app over 10 times. Very frustrating as seeing the stories where one is from 10 minutes ago and the next is from 3 days ago makes no sense.
Stop screwing with the settings
by Jigga225 on 2019/04/24 22:01
Why do I have to scroll down to read comments now ugh
The news feed shows old posts!
by Kayla325 on 2019/04/24 21:53
Even though I choose "most recent" it still shows stuff my like 3 hours ago!! Plus it doesn't move as fast as it used to!! Ugh!! (I use an iPhone 6s)
Not working
by cindyholguin on 2019/04/24 21:11
It’s not showing my friends and when I go to their profiles it says we’re not connected. I’m limited to just pages. Sent two messages about issue with no response.
Problem with videos
by Haley.i on 2019/04/24 21:01
Once I have posted videos I can’t seem to figure out a way to save them to my gallery. It only gives me a option to forward it to messenger and from there forward it to only people on messenger. It’s a frustrating conflict because I feel that there needs to be a better way to be able to download your posted photos and videos to your photos or gallery so that way they are in potential risk of becoming lost.
Ads have become a joke!
by noonecaresaboutfbusers on 2019/04/24 20:53
I’m all for advertising but to do it after a video has started to play has become more annoying than anything! I would rather suffer through a 30sec ad before the video starts rather than the video being interrupted 1/4 way through it. Out of the hundreds of videos that I’ve watched maybe a handful Of those I’ve watched the ad and continued the video otherwise I just scroll to another video.

by Kyanna978 on 2019/04/24 20:07
So over all the ads. Especially in videos now i wont even watch the whole video ill click out once the ad appears because it’s annoying and unnecessary. Also can we get a delete all friends option. I see people making whole new pages all the time just to start over I feel like a refresh, reset, or delete friends option should be available.

Latest update freezes Facebook, makes video and link process extremely slow.
by Helcha7 on 2019/04/24 19:28
Updated yesterday. Major disappointment. What was once an easy to access app has become a nightmare. Tap or click a link and the app freezes. Keep on tinkering and SOMETIMES you can get it to work. Not worth the trouble. Seriously. All was working fine until this update. Please, please, please fix this. And then leave well enough alone. Thank you.

Less a Than Wothless
by Damian Lewd on 2019/04/24 18:40
I was never big on FB, I’m a pretty private person. Eventually I got one about years in. I don’t use it that often and many of the folks I’m linked to I don’t really know. I went to log in after a long hiatus only to be asked to authenticate. I used previously used email to reset WP and logged on from 3 previously used devices FB still requires me to ask for help to log in from friends as I never gave a FB my phone. If I ever regain access I’m deleting my account. Even thought they lead you to believe it can’t be done. It actually can. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
New picture scroll feature isn’t working
by Littlerawer19 on 2019/04/24 18:07
Long time user. This week you’ve implemented a scroll to see more feature on images. When I open the image, a non cta button appears which isn’t clickable and lasts for a few seconds. I can’t click on the image to view more of it or scroll down. It’s frustrating as hell. Please fix this feature
Updates aren’t enhancing
by Cgh49 on 2019/04/24 18:02
For the past couple of days, every time I try to open a link in a post or continue reading an article, or click on an ad....FB freezes up!!! Immensely frustrating because I have to close FB and start over!!!!

it would be a lot better if i could edit which album i put things into after i posted them hopefully you guys will make that a thing
A lot of bugs!
by OhDonna479 on 2019/04/24 17:19
This update seems to have added a lot of bugs! Facebook please look into this matter! Not working smoothly as usual! I keep having to reload it too!! Please check and update it so it’s working great and smoothly again!! Thanks in advance!!

Crooks
by spectrumsuhx on 2019/04/24 16:47
Join with me in marking every ad spam or offensive. Facebook is selling your data for a profit. Don't let them also subject you to ads as well. Make them pick one or the other.
Freezing when opening links
by Nina T on 2019/04/24 16:37
The latest update makes clicking on links a nightmare. The whole interface freezes up for about a minute until the link *finally* opens. Usability disaster.
Decrease the size of the app
by Agnet Code on 2019/04/24 16:10
The more they update this app, the more space it consumes. Please make it light and fast. Thank you.
“Scroll to see more”
by jabzflores on 2019/04/24 16:02
U dont have to lock my screen when I open a picture just to tell me “scroll to see more” I’m not an idiot .. I know I can scroll down and if not I can figure it out myself easily . Why does it have to lock my whole screen for like 4 seconds to tell me that ???
Ads Everywhere
by Gunylu on 2019/04/24 15:57
I am seen more ads than my friends posts. If I start watching a video another ads pop up it’s insane.
Voiceover and accessibility issues
by etoiles_1 on 2019/04/24 15:50
Voiceover will not read pictures anymore. It will not even try to read text. Don’t know if this is a Facebook issue or not. None of the pictures can be read anymore. The only thing it will say to me now is, photo may include text. It used to read what the text was and now it won’t. Not on anything.
The new changes are horrible
by thatdudeovertheir111 on 2019/04/24 15:00
All I want to do is go to a page and be able to scroll through their photos, I DONT WANT SUGGESTIONS.

Arbitrary Blocks, Biased “Community Standards” No Customer Support
by TheRunAndGun10 on 2019/04/24 12:52
Myself and several friends have recently received blocks for 30 days with NO explanation, NO option for review, and NO way to contact Facebook for correction. DO NOT pay for advertising as you will be blocked for no reason and unable to respond to clients.
Annoying
by breedereeeeeeeeeeeeeeee on 2019/04/24 12:42
There seems to be a new update where being mentioned in a comment on a video it takes you to the video section and the video automatically plays out loud, comments get lost and I can’t find them. It’s dumb, it’s annoying change it back 🤦🏽‍♀️
Please fix

App freezes up
by 6783456 on 2019/04/24 11:07
App freezes up after recent update. You can scroll but if you click on a link the whole app freezes up. You have to leave the app and start over. It worked fine until yesterday. 4/19 update
Updates
by Namananananakakbsbw on 2019/04/24 10:05
Y’all are constantly doing updates to improve the app and make things easier for people, which is appreciated. Although change is hard at times, fb changes aren’t too drastic so that’s nice. HOWEVER, I frequently can’t use the app. It’s always up to date. I will click on it, it will open and show a black screen, and then it’ll exit out. The only way for the app to begin working again for me, is to delete it all together, and redownload. Annoying and a bit of an inconvenience. This happens almost daily on my phone.

Locks up when trying to open links in Facebook

Keeps crashing
by Sheaaydenjake on 2019/04/24 03:27
This app worked fine up until today and all it wants to do is crash. Haven’t been able to use it at all. I’ve had to use my browser to get on. Extremely frustrating and I don’t know how to fix it. Please fix this and I’ll download again.
Useless
by Gabblebabbi on 2019/04/24 03:22
Every time I get a notification for a comment I’m not tagged in, it just takes me to the page or group the post was on, not even the post, let alone the actual comment. I’ve updated my phone, I’ve updated the app, I’ve deleted it and reinstalled...this is facebook’s screwup and I came here after at least a week of this to write this, and it’s REALLY pissing me off. But it’s not like you read these reviews anyway.

Endless joke
by Annoyingrandomname25447 on 2019/04/24 01:43
Can’t maintain a constant experience across platforms (do your developers even talk to each other?), can’t tell us what changed with each release (do your developers even talk or record anything?), can’t figure out how to integrate messaging with a common app (do your developers even know how to code?) Perpetual joke platform and “updates”.

Terrible update with the photos!!!
by Tinypadfoot27 on 2019/04/23 23:33
WTH is the deal with clicking photos then being told to scroll down and the entire view just freezing. When I just want to click on the photo so that I can see it full view on the screen and save it if I want to. Why can’t you just leave it be??

WiFi
by shanuert on 2019/04/23 23:04
I honestly don’t understand why you have to have WiFi to download the app. That should be an option not a requirement. Not everyone has access to WiFi.

Slowed it down

Okay but unnecessary changes
by pazmeli95 on 2019/04/23 21:23
Love the app but so over all the updates. I don’t use Facebook watch so I don’t want it at the bottom as a shortcut. I would prefer to keep the marketplace there instead of having to go search for the marketplace. Also I have a new iPhone XS Max yet when I upload pictures or videos whether on WiFi or cellular data the quality on Facebook is so crappy. Also with the latest update whenever I comment on a picture/video/post whatever it leaves the comments twice or 3 times instead of the one time I actually meant to comment. Some things need to change.
Upcoming Birthdays...GONE
by Whatchamacallits on 2019/04/23 20:08
Get back to basics already. When exactly did FB decide to remove something as rudimentary as displaying upcoming birthdays under the Events section?? They’ve been missing for months now...seemingly on the iPhone only....and each update comes and goes without it being addressed. FB Help/Support section doesn’t address the issue, despite repeated questions from an angry user community who all seem to be having the same issue. FIX THE ISSUE!!!!
Gone Black Now
by M.L.Sipin on 2019/04/23 19:22
Since Facebook put on there Facebook Police to check every word we write about post and issues on there site, it is no longer worth reading! They are so worried about being Racist nothing can be said anymore about blacks? Truth or not it’s our opinions and that is what made it so much fun reading what others thoughts were! Facebook now has gone black, not worth reading!
FREEZES
by KayP8618 on 2019/04/23 18:48
UPDATE: October 16, 2015 constantly freezes, then crashes. Are you intentionally limiting the length of posts? Facebook has made itself "one of the (almost) necessary evils" in life. If I didn't have family all across the country using FB, I would delete it. I wish I could post negative stars. I got a notice that one of my reviews was removed because it did not "conform". If they want to do this, they should tell you what review was deleted so you know what they are talking about. And it's only on my desktop, not my phone. I hate that I can't view my News Feed in the order I want. I hate the constant videos playing. And it seems that if you don't provide enough personal information, your videos are found to be in violation of someone's copyright. I tried to post a video that I took of my cat sitting on my lap chewing on my buttons. After making it available for viewing, I got notification that it was removed for copyright violation. What? But you can post videos of people stomping animals and torturing. FB you are really screwed up!
Biased Moderators
by skittle.milk on 2019/04/23 18:18
I’ve been muted and banned too many times for having debates with people who throw out racist, trans/homophobic, r*pe and other profane topics and when I report them nothing is done. Yet I have been muted for weeks due to pointing out white men also contribute to crime. That’s not even biased it’s just a fact. Learn to follow your own community standards or just take them down if you’re not going to follow through.
Add split screen
by austin67823098 on 2019/04/23 17:31
It’s ridiculous that an app like Facebook can’t get its act together enough to offer split screen. When I’m using an iPad I don’t need ¾ of the screen taken up by white space so I can have an iPhone sized feed on the left side. It’s a joke that this hasn’t been fixed yet.
Constantly freezes
by NB/AB on 2019/04/23 16:22
Ever since I installed the last update FB has been completely freezing whenever I try to click on a story or link. I can’t scroll or do anything else until I close the app, wait a minute or two, and then reopen. I updated my OS just now and FB is still freezing.

Freezing up
by Chlknchs on 2019/04/23 12:30
Since the most recent update, the app completely freezes if you try to open a link or page within a post. Must close and reopen the app to be able to scroll. No problem opening posts to comments.
Marketplace

Broken
by CellaBellaBiz on 2019/04/23 10:50
I can’t turn off commenting in the groups that I am the admin of. I have contacted Facebook and they don’t have any answers and blame the app. It has slowly not worked and I was able to clear pages, shut it down, uninstall and reinstall, and still I can’t turn off commenting in my groups. Where it is very necessary in lost and found pet groups when a pet owner is found and the post doesn’t need to be continually bumped to the top by happy comments that the pet is home.
Where is MARKETPLACE?
by ImJustClorox on 2019/04/23 09:52
This new update is ridiculous. The Marketplace tab is completely missing. Not only that but the ads for every single video. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I try to log in to this Facebook app and everytime I keep creating a new Facebook password it’s still won’t let me log in like what the heck bro this is possibly me off but when I go on my tablet LG it goes thru it don’t make any sense why it won’t let me log in into my phone tho it’s pissing me off I guess Facebook is going to be shutting down or something they need to fix a lot of stuff including mine and other people situation.😡😡😡😡😡
Recent update kills FB on iPad
by Mwmwmwmwxxxxxxxxxxxx on 2019/04/23 08:24
Recent update (217.0) has killed the app on my iPad. Buttons for items such as “settings” no longer function. Hangs up when trying to access certain items (haven’t seen a consistent pattern). Ordering of “most recent” seems to ignore individuals and only show groups. Doesn’t allow access to all items, only the first dozen or so. Poorly tested upgrade.
Ridiculous
by facebooksucksihavenolife on 2019/04/23 05:06
you now limit how many posts I can share. That’s ridiculous.

Can you please fix this, every time I upload something the app freezes and I have to close it. I’ve uninstalled it and reinstalled and it still does it, and on my other iPad it does the same thing. I’ve updated the software thinking that would help and it didn’t either.
Facebook-Holiday/New Year Update FAIL,

Facebook’s continued updates seemed to be offering more functionality. Simplified options for utilizing the platform. I was optimistic that Facebook was actually dedicated to the multi-faceted task of continuing to build-out a global effort to provide a secure social platform with comprehensive security algorithms. For the average citizen end-user, a user-friendly interface, evolving with each update to provide tools for easier account monitoring. Thoroughly vetted add-ons for secure, professional, personalized features for creative communication. Facebook, the company that fought its way to become the dominant, essential tool of the digital age that every person could use to represent them, introduce them, to the world. Billions upon billions of dollars changing hands, billions of people who continue to use the platform, and while a few things improved, so much effort goes into adding the newest, most creative, up-to-date bells and whistles. That race to accommodate the superficial commercialized consumer is a horrendous failure. Facebook is not only on a perilous path operationally, instead of improved security, it has become a threat to every individual who uses it. If the present trend continues. Facebook will be nothing more than a means of access for those of ill intent, those whom we currently feel protected from because we lock our doors and windows.
Get it together fb!

This app gets worse with every update! Every time I get a notification, I click on the notification to open it and.... nothing. Just the wheel of death! On top of the many other ongoing issues. I would like to see my friends posts, like alllll of them. If I didn’t want to see them I would unfollow or just unfriend them completely. Same with business posts I follow them because I want to see their posts. I do not want to see the same old ads over & over. I would love it if the sort by “most recent” feature actually worked! I want to see the most recent posts first and then go back chronologically from there. NOT: 1 hr ago, 5 minutes ago, just now, 3 days ago, 2 hrs ago, last week, etc that we are getting now! I don’t need to see something over and over again every time someone new comments on it, if I have not commented or followed the post obviously I have moved on. Also I would like to choose what I get notified about. I know we can choose some things but not everything, ie. I do not want to be notified every time someone goes “live” or adds to their story! I love the idea of fb but you have users telling you all the improvements we want and we just get more things we didn’t ask for and half the time they don’t even work correctly.
Glitch Fixes Needed
by jlccourt on 2017/10/14 20:41
Developers need to fix two things: the first is releasing all new status background options to ALL users. I see other users get new background options on a regular basis, and yet, I have had the same 14 options for a long time now. The second thing developers need to fix is the perpetual number 1 on the badge app icon and within the app itself, even if there are no unread notifications. The app’s description in the App Store is that “To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly” and that “Every update to our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.” We’ll, “new features” as of late haven’t been made available to me, and the only “reliability” I’ve encountered lately is the permanent number 1 on my notifications. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on both my phone and tablet to no avail. The problems seem to be account-related as the issues affect my account when I use my laptop, where I don’t use an app. I’ve reported both the lack of status background options for my account as well as the notifications glitch. I’m not all that confident that developers will fix the problems. 🙁
Sad
by teacuptoni on 2018/12/05 05:37
Honestly Facebook has gone down the tubes within the past year or two. The fact that I have so many friends from high school and college and grade school, work ect, but only see about 8 of the same people is awful. The next thing is the fact it’s not only required to have the fb messenger app downloaded but updated as well. It won’t even allow safari to use it in the browser is so obnoxious. Then the fact that group will have so many members posting but yet the most recent of the ones are not immediately available. Even when the notification is clicked it shows posts from hours if not days ago. Appalling. It’s just so unorganized. So really the only way to view what actually notified you is to turn into the FBI agent you used to be when fb was still fresh top dog when MySpace became obsolete just to find the comment your friend replied to on a video in a group you guys are in. And of course last but not least of the downfalls is a video 45 seconds long gets interrupted mid sentence by a totally irrelevant ad or by something that was mentioned in a real life conversation which I just think is totally creepy. Sorry for all the rambling and riñón sentences but I’m just livid that apps force updates and crap when they’re crap and and making money from ads but then turn into their crappiest versions of themselves.
Deeply Disappointed
by nuanceovernovelty on 2018/04/29 12:11
Following the Cambridge Analytica fiasco I considered deleting my account, but decided against it as I use it too much for business. However, that decision was made for me after and my account of >10 years disappeared overnight. My account was hacked, some sort of rule violation occurred, and my account was subsequently disabled. At this point in my story I’m inconvenienced and a bit frustrated, but understanding of Facebook’s policies. As I jump through the requisite hoops to restore my account (verifying my name, contact info, identify, submitting evidence of a hack, and explaining my experience) I see for the first time the true nature of this company. I simply receive a boilerplate email saying my request to restore my account has been denied. There is no way to communicate with a human being, no phone number, no email, no chat support. For a company that prides itself on fostering an environment for open and reasonable communication their silence is deafening and the irony is ripe. Doing the right and decent thing appears to be too much to ask of Facebook. As it is now abundantly clear to me that Facebook’s actions reflect beliefs and values in automated decision making and blanket judgements by an isolated and powerful entity rather than transparency, care for their users/community members, and any sort of channel to truly interact and serve the people who they are obligated to.
Lizardman is Evil
by TigersEye6 on 2019/03/03 23:59
This needs less than 1 star. This whole app is just flat awful. Privacy is LITERALLY nonexistant, of course not only stealing data but also selling it, but that is something everyone already knew, on top of that though, the app just flat never works right. Videos are horrible, some posts load in about 10 minutes, and thats on a collages internet which averages about 2gb download speeds (and its not just on my phone, its on my laptop, and any desktop I use too). Then on top of that even, the videos have a load of ads, and even worse, sometimes when you try to close a video the screen just turns black and basically freezes so you have to restart the whole thing. And when it comes to security you love to argue “we do this to protect users from spam”, no, you are the spam. Everyone knows facebook gets the money from ads, and guess what spams people: ads. And guess who puts those ads there: facebook. You are a lying company. Literally nobody cares over there, you are all stupid, and if you are just a basic worker and actually have an issue with this maybe consider another job. I have no idea what anyone is doing at facebook hq but maybe if you could stop stealing users information and start caring about the quality of your horrible apps and website, that would be great, thanks.
Glitches
by Rickie archer on 2018/01/14 17:08
With a site so big glitches are expected, but I’m tired of going to most recent to see what my friends actually post just to see the same 3 friends’ posts. Typically I see 4 “new” posts (by New I mean ones I have yet to see not recent) then it shows me the highlights of my news feed or what people posted 3 weeks ago that I have yet to see. I have 60 or so friends, 10 don’t really use it, but I find myself only seeing posts from people I regularly talk to in messenger and that’s it. If I don’t talk to them in messenger Facebook doesn’t let me see their posts. I’ve even ensured I’m following them. The next thing is the ads. It’s great Facebook is free and directs people to products they might enjoy, but when I say something is irrelevant why is it continuously shown? “Want some weight loss pills?” Nope I’m ok with being obese thanks. “How about diapers for a baby even though you don’t have one?” Nope. “Oh we noticed you enjoyed that video about makeup maybe you have acne.” Even if I did I wouldn’t care. Some of the ads are depressing, my husband and I can’t have children yet I’m constantly berated by ads about babies, even after I say hide ad, irrelevant, don’t show this again, or hide ads like this. It’s like showing an old person an ad for a funeral home. Can we please at least listen when people say “DON’T SHOW THIS!”
Facebook Ruined by Facebook
by Byronic_Hero on 2019/03/06 14:03
I don’t use Facebook anymore. My declining use can be traced directly back to the day they introduced their ridiculous algorithmic feed and made the chronological feed increasingly difficult to access. My feed became increasingly dominated by a handful of accounts that Facebook thought I wanted to see above all else, for some reason. I have no idea why. I guess that’s what happens when you like a post. My fault I guess? I don’t know how their algorithm weights content and posts, but it does not in anyway align with what I care about or how I would weight things I want to see. All the ridiculous nonsense Clickbait posts that people unthinkingly share end up polluting my feed, drowning out thoughtful posts that take a little bit of time to digest and are thus less “popular.” It’s no wonder Russian trolls decided to use Facebook as a way to spread misinformation like wildfire. They know the algorithms are primed for precisely that kind of popular nonsense. What a shame. Facebook was so great. It helped me feel in touch with so many people after I moved cities. But the algorithm eventually kept them out of my feed. And probably me out of theirs. And I think none of them even post on Facebook anymore unless they want to share baby photos with grandparents. And thus, everyone I know essentially stopped using Facebook.
What the heck???
by QnA_Facts on 2019/01/07 03:28
... 🕕 ... 🕘 ... 😒 For a considerable length of time I've been reporting issue after issue and nothing has been done to respond or resolve any of the reported issues. What I do get is returned hurtful rhetoric that they know what the issue is, but refuse to acknowledge or fix the actual problem. What makes it worse is they continue to censor my voice and ability to utilize my device as I see fit denying my online and real life civil rights. This MUST be addressed and fixed ASAP, as I have done nothing wrong to violate the Terms & Services yet the App and Platforms are consistently violating my rights and utilizing my personal information for their own uses and benefits; all without proper attribution or credit to me. This is beyond acceptable and is severely hampering productivity and my right to peaceful enjoyment and use of services I have paid and continue to pay for. FIX THIS ALL IMMEDIATELY!!! I guess the Facebook organization and or developers have not heard of or don't care about ECPA (Electronic Communications Privacy Act) or the numerous other rules and laws that continue to violated against me. Never once have they indicated to me that I broke any rules, therefore it's unjust that my access and use be denied, subsequently provided erroneous, confusing, and misleading information about the information reported on a multitude of occasions.
Developers left me Disappointed
by audreys_mom on 2018/03/18 12:59
With every new update that comes out I hold my breath, just hoping this will be “the one” that will fix the hodgepodge of issues with Facebook. The one that bugs me most is Marketplace. I’ve emailed support multiple times with no response (except the auto-generated “thanks for your feedback” email, of course). Then finally, 2 weeks after what was my 3rd request in 3 months time, they responded by saying they received my report and that they appreciate my patience and while they can’t update everyone who submits a report, they’re using the report to make FB better - TICKET CLOSED... Really? Not only this but recently I also lost the option to view posts by “most recent”. FB Customer Service/Support and developers just don’t care what users want. They don’t respond to problem reporting in a timely fashion and it’s now been over a year that people have been complaining about not having access to Marketplace, not just me. Although mine hasn’t been gone that long, it’s ridiculous that this issue can’t be resolved! Especially when the ability to access it just disappears one day yet buyers can still see it and send you message about it but, as the seller, you can’t make changes to it and you can’t even view it! I’ve lost sales because of this. Disappointing Facebook!!
Invasion of privacy
by Jack mehoff! on 2018/02/02 07:25
Facebook has blocked my account until I send them proof of my identity. They’re asking to see either my drivers license or credit card with my name on it. Yea ok facebook👌🏻. Why would I share that information with you when I can just create another account with the same name without sharing my personal info? It doesn’t matter what Facebook does a user can always create another account thru a different cell phone. Facebook should just call it quits. they’ve shown they can’t control and often endorse the fake news their site puts out. Their employees are clearly out of touch with their peers and most of the country. It’s blatantly obvious they are over privileged and pretentious people that will never know a “hard days work” and think accountability is something their accountants do. As proof they won’t stop, they’ll continue to run it into the ground by listening to half-wit suggestions from people who are desperately trying to stand out from their coworkers rather than just accepting that the best wheel design is round. Facebook -constantly lowering the bar. Intelligent people know how easy it is to manipulate their lesser counterparts. Facebook doesnt understand this because they are not intelligent but rather inexperienced , self entitled, over confident and pretentious people. INTELLIGENCE CAN NOT BE LEARNED.
Take away the new Snapchat feature! It’s so dangerous!
by Mama's Not Impressed on 2018/08/23 03:19
I’m so frustrated! As a parent, Snapchat is on our list of apps we don’t allow. It was designed by a couple of college students who wanted to facilitate sexting. Fine for adults who are into that, but the problem comes when these platforms are significantly marketed to teenagers! We know cyberbullying and sexting cause psychological damage to teens... except now parents won’t be able to intervene because messages and pictures are able to automatically disappear in a few seconds!! As someone who suffered “predatorial grooming” at the age of four (being coached to trust a 15 year old who then molested me) you just don’t trust teenagers to make responsible choices with that much privacy. I realize people can manually delete messages, but this also takes away that personal choice to retain an abusive message for the purpose of reporting it. You’d have to think fast and screenshot it. Let’s not strip away one more layer of INTENTIONAL accountability. It’s not healthy. If I have to make the decision to delete something so I’m not going to get caught with it, there is a psychological process happening that is important. Knowing it will delete itself....well now it doesn’t matter anymore, does it? Let the mature adults sign up for these features on platforms marketed to adults.
Thanks fb 👎 FOR NOTHING!!!
by ckm556 on 2018/02/26 02:27
Been on for about a year. Started 2 guitar groups and one day about a week ago you decided that I didn’t need an acct anymore and deactivated my acct literally as I’m typing a post. I know what you’re going to tell me... you are going to tell me it’s because I didn’t use my given first name. Well if it was such a problem then you shouldn’t have gave it the ok after you blocked me when I opened it the first tome and I sent a pic of my ID and then you ok’d it. My fb name met the fb policy requirements when I opened my acct!!! Instead you waited until I spent time building my guitar repair business and had hundreds of contacts and spent hours on end building my groups. Now the groups are open with no admin or moderators to deal with anything. I opened another acct IN MY GIVEN NAME!!! and you disabled that in 15 minutes. I opened another acct using a different email address with my given name and you closed it down in about 30 minutes. I sent an appeal about my original acct and haven’t heard a thing. It’s impossible to contact anyone to actually help you get something done. I don’t post anything that is offensive, I rarely talk about anything other than guitar related topics and still I’m banned for no reasonable explanation. Your community help forum is a joke. Thanks a lot fb!!! FOR NOTHING!!!
Updates Ongoing Issues
by HollyL45 on 2018/10/09 19:53
I’m an IT professional, why aren’t your developers testing new development to ensure they haven’t broken previously working basic functionality before releasing a new update? You are ruining the FB experience for your users. Every time you release an update lately something that has always worked no longer works. If I wasn’t dependent on FB to keep up with my friends and family and my professional photography groups I would have deleted it long ago. Most of these marketed “new and improved updates” are anything but and basically useless to the majority of users. Also they are huge updates making it so FB is taking up most of the available space on my phone and I have an IPhoneX 256 GB, not an old phone. I shouldn’t have to delete photos of my family to make room for FB. Notifications still no longer work. This has been going on and repeatedly reported for months. If you want to update something fix what you broke your users would be much happier. Now when I type a comment and make a mistake it won’t let me go back and correct it. It starts deleting everything I previously typed instead of letting me insert additional text or deleted something I typed incorrectly. I have to erase everything and start all over. Very frustrating.
👎Facebook=ПРАВДА (PRAVDA)👎
by planeKrazy on 2018/03/30 05:44
Facebook has tolerance for everything that’s on the ‘left’ or ‘ultra-left’ spectrum of our political divide.. If you’re a centrist or lean somewhat to the ‘right’ you’re out of luck and your views WILL be suppressed through “smart measures”.. A good friend posted a 9/11 memo picture with caption to always remember. Within minutes his account was banned and he had to start a new one with the help of the trusted friends feature. I and several other of his trusted friends wrote to Facebook asking why his account had been shot down? (We had snap shots of the last message he posted). No response from Facebook. Frankly the seemingly ‘random’ erasing of peoples Facebook accounts is very worrisome. I say random but in reality their preferred “FB erasing victim” seems to be a conservative user, some of them have had their accounts for more than a decade. My friend was just such a case. No way to appeal, Facebook simply won’t respond to emails and messages. One day you have an account and the next day you don’t. Absolutely no way to appeal or even get an explanation as to why? Shocking.. Never thought an American company would be so vehemently anti-American. I recently sold all my shares of Facebook, I think this attitude will hurt their long term value.. ___ To “GIM8789” reviewer - I totally agree with you!
App keeps backing me out
by jlFinchmockingbird94 on 2018/07/13 22:48
Ever since the most recent update, there have been multiple occasions where the app will just back me out, taking me straight to my home screen without reason or warning. This usually happens within seconds of entering the app, and never happens just once at a time. Rather, it will happen every single time I try to re-enter the app, often continuing to do so repeatedly, until it finally decides to work normally again. It has proven to be impossible to predict when this problem will occur, and how long it will continue before returning to its proper functioning. At first I thought it was my WiFi and/or network connection, but I now know it can’t be attributed to either one, given that it has now happened on several WiFi networks AS WELL AS while using data. I also have the newest version of iOS, so it can’t be explained by not having updated software, and I have the app set to where I always stay signed in, so I know it has nothing to do with my login, either. I’m sure I can’t be the only one who has been experiencing this, even if I happen to be the only one writing a review about it. Please work on figuring out the cause of this issue and finding a solution, because it has made using the app a complete hassle and annoyance.
What is going on with the news feed???
by NicoleRose215 on 2018/09/12 05:50
Up until about a month ago, I never had a problem with the news feed. I’d open my app and I’d go to my Most Recent news feed and I’d see the most recent posts in order, starting with the newest post and then the one before that and so on. It was in chronological order. It made sense and it’s exactly what I wanted to view. Now when I go to my Most Recent news feed, I see something that was posted 2 mins ago, and then the next one is something from 6 hours ago, and then the next one is from 47 mins ago, and then the next one is from last night at 6:24pm, and then the next one is from Monday at 10:07am, and then the next one is from 3 hours ago and like what in God’s name is friggin happening here??????? I’d be better off just calling my friends and asking them to tell me what they’ve posted on Facebook lately because by the time I see it in my news feed, it could be week-old news! You know, sometimes certain pages post important things or time-sensitive information and if the most recent posts aren’t coming up correctly, that’s a huge problem. What’s the point of using this app if it doesn’t work correctly?? Get it together, Facebook!!

Account recovery
by Snuggles2012 on 2018/07/12 01:08
Recently got a new phone and tried to recover my account by phone number. Failed miserably. My account has automatically logged in on my phone for so long I couldn’t remember my log in. When trying to recover my account I was linked to and recovers an account that was not mine. Actually the account was of someone from another country that hadn’t been active since 2012. I no longer have access to old emails or phone numbers. I tried to contact the support team telling them I could provide pictures or personal info to prove that I was the owner of my account that I was trying to log into and have yet to have a response after 3+ days. I tried making a brand new profile on my pc ( with a new email that I have never used for fb before) and got as far as setting a profile picture and adding friends when I was printed with a security message . So now am also locked out of a brand new profile. I wished MySpace was still around because I would honestly just stop using fb . Fb is the main access I have to out of state family as well as uploaded pictures and memories that were not backed up anywhere else. I just want my account back. Why can’t fb have security questionnaire for recovery? Why can’t someone contact me to help me ?

Wish I could delete
by clcx43 on 2018/08/17 00:13
The only reason I still have facebook is because my school posts important updates at times. I get notifications constantly from facebook telling me so and so posted a picture or so and so commented on a post...things like that. These are usually people I don’t even interact with and I do not want these notifications. The only way to stop getting them is to completely unfollow the person, which then takes their posts out of my news feed as well, which I do not want to happen. And even when I unfollow people my phone continues to give me notifications of new people posting things that I don’t care about. The only reason I don’t turn off Facebook notifications all together is, like I said, so I can get important updates from my school’s groups. I’ve turned off every notification setting within the Facebook app that I can and continue to get these notifications on my phone. It is extremely annoying. I will also get badge app notifications saying I have 4 new notifications when I don’t actually have any. Extremely annoying and makes me think I have an important notification to check when I rarely actually do. Will delete my account as soon as I’m done with school if this isn’t fixed.
So seeing as others have the same issues
by SVas85 on 2018/10/19 15:41
I’m all for being able to connect with family and friends. Not everyone has the luxury of international calling, unlimited data/talk/text, etc. that being said, I’ve gotten to a point where I keep my account Deactivated, and my messenger active, I’m not a fan of the fact FB is breeding grounds for a Petri dish variety of BAD MEDIA - like the super negative stuff - that are put there intentionally for others to repost because it triggers them, or tempts them. I personally decided not to even have cable in my home, for the sheer fact that as a kid in the 90’s there was good news, as well as not so great news. Now, it’s all negative and bad. It gets old. Furthermore, I had the WORST issue trying to get away from a stalker that made a total of 8 false profiles to repetitively contact me, even after I blocked him every time. I DID file a report, and nothing happened. So I was forced to delete my account and make a new one with a false name. Whereas it’s convenient to use for communication, I’m not FBs biggest fan, due to the fact it’s been made into (as I said) a breeding ground for negativity. Just saying...
Ugh.
by Mdralfw10 on 2017/12/15 04:49
I had a previous review from years ago, but I figured I'd update it. This app still doesn't work right. I understand that there's bound to be an issue or two with any app, but the fact that it still crashes 10+ times a day, reloads while I'm reading something even if I've clicked on the status, doesn't load videos very well, and is glitchy. Facebook all together is starting to be worthless. I tried to upload a video of my 8 month old dancing to music on a cd of mine, and it wouldn't let me because there was music playing. That's fine, but then it blocked me from uploading videos all together even though it gave the option to discard or post the video. I chose to discard the post. That's not an app issue, but it's a Facebook issue. I see so many people get their posts taken down when there's nothing wrong with it, but by all means, keep letting the photos/videos of dead babies show up. I guess that's ok, but when you have live babies dancing, it's not. It also seems a little racist that if I put a video up of a Caucasian person singing/rapping it doesn't tell me I can't upload it, but when I try to upload a video of an African American singing/rapping it won't let me 💁🏼. Facebook seems to have their priorities backwards.
Facebook
by My Webster's Dic. on 2019/01/25 09:53
I have enjoyed Facebook for a solid 7-8 years now. There are a great many things I love about Facebook. But there are times when Facebook does fall short of that Knightly perfection we all expect to have 24/7. When that happens, we all come out like a pack of grizzly bears gnarling at the zoo keepers for not bringing our dinner on time or forgetting those play toys they promised. Non-the-less these interruptions sometimes seem to disrupt our lives right when we least expect it to right. Then our lives have been thrown all out of sync right? Well folks, instead of causing ourselves more problems and heartaches than a of us need or want.... how about we find a different approach? How about we create a new picture for this situation? What do you say!! Huh? Ok so Facebook is having some problems. So let’s give em some time and let’s go horseback riding, play a game of chess or Monopoly, wash the dog/dogs, go for a hike, or... Gather some friends and go help an elderly person. The point here is to get away from the computer and think about someone or something else. Facebook will be there when you get back. Ok?!? Good Luck! 👍🏼
I thought upgrades are supposed to fix “bugs”?
by Carrtunz on 2019/01/22 01:06
I am really getting tired of all the bugs in the Facebook app. I take every update available and my phone apps and operating system are always the latest available. But yet Facebook still gives me nothing but grief. My notifications very often won’t refresh and just freeze or it just keeps quitting and closing the app every 10 seconds, if I can get it to stay open for that long. No matter how many times Log out and log back in or delete the app and reinstall it, it doesn’t stop. No one at Apple can figure it out not can FB support. After a while it stopped for a few weeks and I thought I was home free! But NOPE! Now my entire Newsfeed and Notifications are quitting and won’t stay open or refresh! If I didn’t have so many school and work friends on FB I would get rid of it completely!!!! When the hell are you people going to fix all the bugs and let your users have a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying experience??? MySpace has less problems! You’ve made enough money off this app to fix it, Zuckerberg!!! Hoping a new and better social media app comes out soon! I’m disappointed and disgusted!
Racial Discrimination Against The Black Community On Facebook
by Rubies-Sapphire on 2018/11/28 04:19
Black people are finding that their attempts to create "safe spaces" on Facebook for conversation among themselves are being derailed by the platform itself. Non-black people are reporting what are meant to be positive efforts as hate speech, despite them often not violating Facebook’s terms of service. Their content is removed without notice. Accounts are suspended indefinitely. When these rulings are upheld with little recourse, it upends the communities of color Facebook claims to be supporting. It decreases the likelihood that people will continue to engage at the same level on our platform. Even high-profile figures who are plagued with these issues sometimes have to wait until it’s a major press story for it to be addressed. There is a prevailing theory among many black users that their content is more likely to be taken down on the platform than any other group. Even though the theories are mostly anecdotal, Facebook does little to dissuade people from this idea. Black people continue to use the platform because for many it is still their best way to connect directly with the causes they care about. Our communities should be able to trust that we have their best interests at heart.
Locked Out of Account
by MKaip on 2017/11/19 14:07
If I could give 0 Stars, I would.. Facebook has locked me out of my account for days, saying they need to review a photo of me. There is no one to contact or email to fix it. I have had my account since about 2005 so it doesn’t make sense.. The Help Page is of no help because it consists of regular people who do not have access to unlock accounts. Facebook needs to have a direct contact via Chat or email to assist their customers. When I was able to use the app, it had a lot of bugs and annoying features. It would randomly refresh on its own in the middle of me reading comments, have no rhyme or reason for organizing posts on the News Feed, and constantly suggest potential friends. Just because one friend of mine is friends with someone, doesn’t mean that I want to be. My biggest pet peeve with Facebook is how invasive it is with announcing to all of your friends any time you like a page or comment on a public post. I feel like I can’t comment on a news article without every one of my friends seeing it on their News Feed so I stopped commenting on things a long time ago. This app is terrible, and I can’t even go experience the awfulness that it is because my account is locked..
New update causing newsfeed to freeze
by Pikaboo09 on 2019/02/17 14:13
Didn’t have this problem until yesterday when the new update kicked in. Everything else works fine, notifications, clicking through group posts and whatnot. But as soon as I go to news feed before or after doing other things on the app it just freezes. I’ve reset the app, I’ve reset my phone, I’ve cleared all of Facebook’s caches, and I’m going to try uninstalling and reinstalling next. On another note, I was reminded after seeing someone else’s review about the group notifications as well. It’s rather annoying that Group notifications for new posts and what not see to be randomized. Sometimes I won’t get the notification for a new post, but suddenly I get one of a post that was posted hours or even days ago. The most annoying part about is when you go to the group and try to look at recent member posts, they’re randomized too, there doesn’t seem to be a way to set it to most recently posted, I don’t know what it’s set to but it’s not even most liked or most commented, it’s absolutely random and that boggles my mind.
The Facebook App imposes its own browser
by justsomeguy on 2018/04/27 14:08
According to the Moderator of a respected Geek discussion site, if you’re using the Facebook App to browse Facebook and you hit a link on the App, this opens up a different browser than your smart phone’s Chrome or Safari browser. Facebook’s App has its own browser, or, more accurately, its own web view (basically a browser control that uses the native web browser’s renderer but has its own session management, including its own cookies. The App Store description does not make this clear; nor does it explain why the FB App is designed this way; hence users have no info to help them decide whether to use or not use the App. I’m not saying the FB App is bad; it clearly does provide a richer user experience than simply logging into FB’s website via Safari. But it raises doubts, including what other manipulations or re-directions may be occurring without your knowledge when you skip the App and log in with your preferred, native browser.
Irritating App
by Diane Harris on 2017/10/10 19:38
The app has been driving me crazy for months now. If I stay on the Facebook page, it only blacks out once or twice per evening. If I want to read something (my cousin's newspaper article, for instance) posted by my friends, the app blacks out every time and if I want to continue on Facebook, I have to open the app all over again and hope I can find my place. I'm almost ready to delete the darn thing! Wondering if it's worth the frustration! I've written my problems to the staff through Facebook three times and have received no recommendations. Can the app be fixed? Well, it's about 2 ,months later and nothing has improved. The app still freezes and blacks out. If I try to move from a post to attached info it freezes. Moving down the page to more posts makes it freeze or it blacks out completely. Then I get to start all over opening the app yet again. This is really getting to be more trouble than it's worth. It would be nice if the it people would at least respond in some way. A lot of us are feeling ignored. Not good business practice!
Someone LIED to you
by So Done! on 2018/10/24 16:03
Whomever told you this latest update was a great idea, SHOULD BE FIRED. 1)When notifications come in that I’ve been tagged or someone has replied to a comment I made, it no longer takes you to the post, just to the comment. So if I commented last week and I get a reply today I have absolutely no idea what the original post was about. 2) A notification disappears after I look at it. So if I have to refer back to it for any reason, I have to somehow find the page of the original poster and then hunt for the post. STUPID IDEA 3) When going to some notifications, when you click on it it takes you to a blank post. I see the persons name, the time they posted and maybe if someone reacted to it, but absolutely no post at all. There’s even comments on it but I see no post at all. Yes I have access to their page, I haven’t been blocked and they call me to say “did you see my last post” and all I see is nothing. 3) Auto refresh is annoying. Someone posts an article and I take 2-3 minutes reading it and when I go to comment on it, you’ve refreshed my feed. Thanks for nothing. I’m sick of y’all. If I didn’t need this app to keep in contact with family around the globe, I’d delete it.
If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it
by Matti moo on 2018/12/03 20:37
Nobody wants a game page or a group page. It’s amazing how many different ways you want to send me push notifications, that I literally only click on so that it will go away. I went in to change my notification settings and it turns out you will not let me turn off all group notifications at once and I have to go through a list and manually select out of 100 groups which ones I want, the slider for all is greyed out. This is totally unnecessary, and nobody asked for this. Why do I have a notification for every time someone goes live? Anytime an event is added at a venue I checked into ONE TIME that’s across the world in a different country? Facebook notifications used to notify me when someone wanted to talk to me, and I’ve done my best to continually update my setting but it’s getting crazy. Now I’ll have 7 notifications and check it and not a single one is about a friend I have that was reaching out to me. Events, game page, so and so went live, so and so checked in safe, I have memories from 10 years ago to look at, so and so posted in this group, like I do. Not. Care. And I don’t need a red push notification making it seem like I should.
No notifications about my posts!
by Sheryl1468 on 2018/11/12 03:56
For the last 2 months, the notification settings in the app are a complete mess. The app will have the red number, but one of them are about my own posts. Any reactions or comments to MY posts don’t load in the list of notifications, so I have no idea about comments or reactions unless I actually go to the post itself. All I see are notifications about my friends’ posts. Further, while the news feed works fine, the list of notifications is limited to EXACTLY 20 notifications. When I scroll to the bottom, the page just jumps and doesn’t refresh to show any more than exactly 20. Maybe once a week I will scroll and be surprised to be able to scroll past 20, but it’s not because of anything I did or didn’t do. AND once I scroll back to the top of the list and scroll back down, I’m limited to 20 again. AND notifications for my posts still aren’t in the list. I have a brand new iPhone 6s Plus (3 months), so if Facebook doesn’t fix it soon, I am going to be convinced that the problems are a way to push people to upgrade their phones to the newest versions.
Getting worse instead of better
by CyndiB51 on 2018/01/27 16:23
I can see that rating the app makes no difference to the developers. The same problems I complained about last year still exist, and some pictures and GIFs never load. And now the notification that someone liked your post has to be clicked on to remove it from the notification list. So you end up having to go back to the post twice to remove the "like" notification and to read the comment they left. So useless. One thing these bad-to-worse updates are doing for me is helping me to break my FB addiction. 2017: The latest update (7/1) did nothing to make the slowness any better. I am spending less time on Facebook because of this crappy app. Clicking on a notification takes almost a minute to load, very aggravating. And please please bring back the option that allows us to choose not to see all our friends' likes. I had to hide several of my friends just because their likes flooded my newsfeed. The "I don't want to see this" option doesn't work for likes. Also, it randomly skips back to the top of the feed so that you lose your place when scrolling down. The people who update this app must never use it.
Shutting down
by Amyncosolo on 2017/10/03 06:32
I don't know why but lately Facebook app has been shutting down and going to my main screen while I'm reading something😡very annoying!!! Fix this bug please! It also refreshes on its own. That's really annoying too when you are going through comments and then back out wanting to continue where you were before going to the comments and it decides on its own "nope you were done scrolling" 🙄 Nothing has been fixed. It still does all of the above even tho there's been tons of updates. Seriously fix this issue it's annoying! Stars went down bc it still hasn't been fixed STILL REFRESHES ON ITS OWN! When will this be fixed??? In the middle of reading something in Facebook and go to my internet for a second and then back to Facebook and it decides I was done and refreshes and sends me back to the top! Very annoying and j lose posts I was in the middle of reading. Why won’t you fix this issue. Many people have the same issue yet you don’t fix it!! Stars went down yet again bc it’s not fixed. One 1 star to go and honestly if I could give it a 0 star I would! Fix the freaking problem already!!!
Seriously?!?!?! By Highnessty
by CAQueen on 2018/12/19 18:55
First, a note 2 all of u who r bothered by the “privacy issue”. FB IS NOT PRIVATE! If u do not want 2 b seen online... DON’T. GO. ONLINE. I don’t trust people who want 2 hide. Seriously. I have no issue keeping it simple & transparent. If I was online & some1 asks whether I was or not I tell them the truth. Feels much better than getting caught in a lie. Facebook is not a place of privacy/peace. Period. U want privacy & peace? Turn off your computer, phone, tablet, or @ least turn off your WiFi & go read a book or watch a movie. & if u do not want it on FB, how about, oh, I dunno... NOT POSTING IT ON FB?!?! There’s a nu idea. Now, this 1 is directly 2 FB; stop “fixing” 💩that isn’t broken! Jesus Christ on crutches! Just STOP already! Every time I get used 2 the nu format u change it! Second, I am legally blind. WHY DID U SHRINK THE PRINT & squeeze a bunch of stuff on my homepage/feed?!?! Now it looks 2 busy, like a newspaper. I stay away from newspaper 4 that very reason. I was overjoyed when the very first 📱 came out bcuz I could read my news in large print. Now that purpose is defeated. People, stop complaining about your “privacy”. & FB, please. 4 the love of all that is holy, get the large print format back. PLEASE.
So unfair
by nah fah on 2018/12/14 02:52
So I’ve been using Facebook for 5 years now and I thought I liked it or loved it. Everyone seem to moved on to new social media while I’m still using Facebook on Facebook I have so much memories a picture of my grandma who had passed away a voice clips from her and I thought connected with family and a lot of my grandma voice clip are left in Facebook when she passed a few week ago before I sleep I play that clips but then one night everything changed about what I thought about Facebook there were this dude who sent me nude and I told him to leave me alone he wouldn’t at a time I didn’t thought if reporting him cause it didn’t come across my mind I was too tired and when it came across it was too late the dude reported me before I reported him and the Facebook sent me an email saying my Facebook permanently been disabled and all it comes across my mind was I didn’t do anything I sending many many replied back and today it came bad and said that that’s their last email for me and I was crying cause all my messages from my grandma the memories and her voice clips I cried and now I feel like it’s unfair I’ll never thought of hating Facebook but now I can’t say the same sadly.
Posts not visible
by Catrophy2 on 2018/10/24 02:04
The latest update is a mess. The gifs are now shown in a different vertical format with the lowest ones not fully visible or clickable. Posts (your own and/or those of friends) are not showing up for hours to days. Some people can see them and comment while others see no post, only the comments. The app resets your privacy setting to default to showing your location so that FB can yet again bypass your own preference for PRIVACY and send you location-based ads and suggested events near you even though they PROMISED to respect your privacy from now on. DAYS have passed (close to a week) since the posts are not showing for everyone and no fix has yet been released. Worse, FB does not feel the need to tell you what’s in each update of the FB and Messenger apps so you have no idea whether you want to update it or not. Not to mention their selective censorship and removal of accounts they get political pressure to remove without offering any warning to the account holder or opportunity to save photos or posts before losing complete access. A very bad decision that is leading many loyal followers to leave FB.
Marketplace ratings.
by Westinian on 2018/07/03 01:11
I think the marketplace is probably the worst way to sell/buy things. Only because you can rate people without them actually buying anything. I found this out when someone rated me badly for no reason other then me telling him no that’s too low for an item he was trying to buy. It’s very unfair. Look at how other selling/buying apps do it. You CAN NOT rate anyone without them BUYING something first. But it’s “okay” because you’re just recommending the seller/buyer. But they can just hide there reviews so no one knows what you actually have. So there is no point in a rating system. And they can only rate you if you message back or they message you back. So if you try selling something and someone is just being mean they can go around messaging people after getting a reply then rate them badly. I know I’m not the only one who has this problem. But it is a BIG problem with the marketplace. It is very unfair and can impact seller and buyers. And personally I don’t think a social app should try to be a marketplace as well anyway. It kinda defeats the whole purpose of being sociable when the market place is full of people who just want to ruin your reputation.
Buggy
by imbeginningtohateapple on 2018/10/13 00:04
This app is very buggy and hasn’t been through enough testing. Thorough testing would show many bugs including not being able to see full photo sets from the Facebook feed without clicking on them one by one and then even when I click on the original post, it will only show me the preview photos and I am able to swipe through them (the first four or so), but not the rest. Secondly, there are menu issues that differ from the normal site which make it confusing and difficult to go to google for assistance in finding something. Lastly, to expand from the last point, some links are difficult to find. For example, an event I had just clicked “interested” on before leaving the page did not show up on the main events page. It took me searching the name of the event to find it when it could have been two clicks away. Efficiency is an issue with this app and it does have bugs, but I use it to avoid having to download messenger. I don’t use it often, but might start if they made it more user friendly (ha).
Does nothing but frustrate
by lilspiffy on 2018/12/11 06:31
The latest update makes every photo rotate to fit the screen no matter the orientation that’s locked on your device. The “most recent” page includes the most recent comments (seriously!?) and not just posts. So you have to scroll through posts from a month ago if a friend said “nice” on it today. The fact that you can’t turn off notifications for friend suggestions (Yes, suggestions!) finally had me turn off all notifications all together. Then it started notifying me anyway that a friend had commented on some random post to try to entice me into turning notifications back on. Really? You then notify me of something I do not want in order to convince me that notifications are great??... ugh. As if that weren’t enough, they created the “marketplace” and put the notification numbers on it. I hate those little numbers. This forces me to go to the marketplace tab to make it stop screaming little red numbers at me. Reddit gets it. Let us actually see what we want to see in the order in which it was received. If we don’t want to see political crap, let us block it and not the beloved family member who is driving you nuts with Trump posts.
So buggy
by JuliaK123 on 2018/05/07 17:15
I get I have an older iPhone with less storage, but 6 years of pictures taking up less space than this app? Really? I hate deleting and reinstalling, but why isn’t there another option? It consumes battery and memory like no other app. Also- what’s up with all the adds? I did the “see these people first” but instead I have to see a my post/rant regarding a traffic jam from 6 years ago and an add about some gel makeup or Walmart. I understand needing to make money via selling adds but there’s gotta be a better way of doing it. If every time I open the app for 2 weeks I’m presented with the same add- that eats up battery because it’s running music and video and my phone dies cuz it drained 7% of my battery in the process. How is that actually going to help sell the product? Maybe a small window on the side, so your friends posts- or at the very least “see first” can be seen first. Don’t make “go live” so easy to accidentally hit. Its constant and Im ready to throw my phone and run when it starts. How often does the avg person want to “go live”? Common sense: ease of accessibility should correlate to use.
Another update, another fail
by K_Dubbs77 on 2017/11/09 17:30
***I stick with my original review because it still very much holds true...and now after the latest “update”, any time you click on a post, all of the comments are blank. Get your act together fakebook Seriously, for all your pathetic attempts at updates that simply only erase negative comments, could you actually fix something in it. It's bad enough you ignore all of the comments you receive, but you make the app worse with every update. To the point now that my news feed is a cluttered mess with things you think I want to read, that repeat from days earlier, just now in an a more unappealing format. "Every update includes improvements for speed and reliability"...yea, not so much. There's nothing improved or faster, as usual per every update it's slower, worse, and buggier than the previous version...so how about finally addressing some of the issues this app has had for the past two plus years that the users continue to point out yet you developers continue to ignore, instead of adding pointless features that nobody cares about anyway. The one star rating I'm forced to give this is way beyond more than it deserves.
Enough with refreshing the newsfeed!
by Kristycake on 2017/11/06 15:58
I never write reviews, but these recent updates make me want to delete Facebook. 6 months ago, if I needed to pause my Facebook scrolling go do something else, I would just click someone’s picture and it would “hold my place” in my newsfeed. This was great. I’m a mom to a toddler and I oftentimes have to multitask. NOW, if I switch to a different app or put my phone down for 10 SECONDS to do something else, my newsfeed refreshes, and starts at the top. This is infuriating when I’m in the middle of reading an article or looking at an album of pictures. What is the purpose of this? Who is it benefitting? Certainly not your users. I find myself getting on Facebook less and less these past few weeks because I get more annoyance than enjoyment out of it. Do you not do any kind of market research before you implement these things? And please, get rid of the camera. Everyone and their brother has a camera on their phone. I think we’re set! I’m tired of swiping left to exit a post and accidentally hitting the camera which takes 10 seconds to load. I can’t imagine what your UI/QA teams get paid to “ok” these poorly planned “enhancements”.

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

Annoying notifications

I can not take pictures in comments... I have camera access and read and write permissions turned on but I still can’t take a picture to send in comments... I have to leave Facebook go to camera to take a picture and come back hoping it didn’t update the feed so I can send a picture.... FIX IT!!!
Facebook still the king Of making changes nobody wants.
by Lovepirate14 on 2019/04/24 22:48
The latest update has made navigating Facebook on an Iphone+ very annoying. They removed the ability to swipe up to get out of a picture/video and now I have to reach all the way up to the top left corner to physically hit a back arrow. Not sure why they feel the need to constantly tweek things that aren’t broken.
Groups glitches
by Mhew on 2019/04/24 22:38
I am an admin in a couple of groups. Since we no longer have the Groups app, I’ve been using the Facebook app to moderate. As of this past weekend (4/20/19) I could no longer turn off comments on member posts and my fee was not in order. This was all on mobile. Desktop seems to work fine, but I’m not always on a computer. Another admin complained of the same issue with her group feed on mobile. I could not find how else to report these glitches, so I’m leaving it here as a review, in hopes that this will be corrected soon. Thanks.
Similar items in my newsfeed
by Most Recent Viewer on 2019/04/24 22:27
Hey Facebook, how about just showing me what my friends are posting instead of having a suggested post every third post on my time line. If I wanted to see stuff you recommended, I would just go to the internet. On Facebook all I want to see is what friends post not what you think I ought to see.
Most Recent Button
by Jhoff1728 on 2019/04/24 22:23
For the last 3 weeks my Most Recent button doesn’t show my posts in chronological order. Same order as the Top Stories. I have deleted and re-added the app over 10 times. Very frustrating as seeing the stories where one is from 10 minutes ago and the next is from 3 days ago makes no sense.
Stop screwing with the settings
by Jigga225 on 2019/04/24 22:01
Why do I have to scroll down to read comments now ugh
The news feed shows old posts!
by Kayla325 on 2019/04/24 21:53
Even though I choose "most recent" it still shows stuff my like 3 hours ago!! Plus it doesn't move as fast as it used to!! Ugh!! (I use an iPhone 6s)
Not working
by cindyholguin on 2019/04/24 21:11
It’s not showing my friends and when I go to their profiles it says we’re not connected. I’m limited to just pages. Sent two messages about issue with no response.
Problem with videos
by Haley.i on 2019/04/24 21:01
Once I have posted videos I can’t seem to figure out a way to save them to my gallery. It only gives me a option to forward it to messenger and from there forward it to only people on messenger. It’s a frustrating conflict because I feel that there needs to be a better way to be able to download your posted photos and videos to your photos or gallery so that way they are in potential risk of becoming lost.
Ads have become a joke!
by noonecaresaboutfbusers on 2019/04/24 20:53
I’m all for advertising but to do it after a video has started to play has become more annoying than anything! I would rather suffer through a 30sec ad before the video starts rather than the video being interrupted 1/4 way through it. Out of the hundreds of videos that I’ve watched maybe a handful Of those I’ve watched the ad and continued the video otherwise I just scroll to another video.

by Kyanna978 on 2019/04/24 20:07
So over all the ads. Especially in videos now i wont even watch the whole video ill click out once the ad appears because it’s annoying and unnecessary. Also can we get a delete all friends option. I see people making whole new pages all the time just to start over I feel like a refresh, reset, or delete friends option should be available.

Latest update freezes Facebook, makes video and link process extremely slow.
by Helcha7 on 2019/04/24 19:28
Updated yesterday. Major disappointment. What was once an easy to access app has become a nightmare. Tap or click a link and the app freezes. Keep on tinkering and SOMETIMES you can get it to work. Not worth the trouble. Seriously. All was working fine until this update. Please, please, please fix this. And then leave well enough alone. Thank you.

Less a Than Wothless
by Damian Lewd on 2019/04/24 18:40
I was never big on FB, I’m a pretty private person. Eventually I got one about years in. I don’t use it that often and many of the folks I’m linked to I don’t really know. I went to log in after a long hiatus only to be asked to authenticate. I used previously used email to reset WP and logged on from 3 previously used devices FB still requires me to ask for help to log in from friends as I never gave a FB my phone. If I ever regain access I’m deleting my account. Even thought they lead you to believe it can’t be done. It actually can. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
New picture scroll feature isn’t working
by Littlerawer19 on 2019/04/24 18:07
Long time user. This week you’ve implemented a scroll to see more feature on images. When I open the image, a non cta button appears which isn’t clickable and lasts for a few seconds. I can’t click on the image to view more of it or scroll down. It’s frustrating as hell. Please fix this feature

A lot of bugs!
by OhDonna479 on 2019/04/24 17:19

Join with me in marking every ad spam or offensive. Facebook is selling your data for a profit. Don't let them also subject you to ads as well. Make them pick one or the other.
Freezing when opening links
by Nina T on 2019/04/24 16:37

“Scroll to see more”
by jabzflores on 2019/04/24 16:02
U dont have to lock my screen when I open a picture just to tell me “scroll to see more” I’m not an idiot .. I know I can scroll down and if not I can figure it out myself easily . Why does it have to lock my whole screen for like 4 seconds to tell me that ???
Ads Everywhere

Voiceover and accessibility issues
by etoiles_1 on 2019/04/24 15:50
Voiceover will not read pictures anymore. It will not even try to read text. Don’t know if this is a Facebook issue or not. None of the pictures can be read anymore. The only thing it will say to me now is, photo may include text. It used to read what the text was and now it won’t. Not on anything.
The new changes are horrible
by thatdudeovertheir111 on 2019/04/24 15:00

Arbitrary Blocks, Biased “Community Standards” No Customer Support
by TheRunAndGun10 on 2019/04/24 12:52
Myself and several friends have recently received blocks for 30 days with NO explanation, NO option for review, and NO way to contact Facebook for correction. DO NOT pay for advertising as you will be blocked for no reason and unable to respond to clients.
Annoying
by breedereeeeeeeeeeeeeeee on 2019/04/24 12:42
There seems to be a new update where being mentioned in a comment on a video it takes you to the video section and the video automatically plays out loud, comments get lost and I can’t find them. It’s dumb, it’s annoying change it back 🤦🏽‍♀️
Please fix

App freezes up after recent update. You can scroll but if you click on a link the whole app freezes up. You have to leave the app and start over. It worked fine until yesterday. 4/19 update
Updates
by Namananananakakbsbw on 2019/04/24 10:05
Y’all are constantly doing updates to improve the app and make things easier for people, which is appreciated. Although change is hard at times, fb changes aren’t too drastic so that’s nice. HOWEVER, I frequently can’t use the app. It’s always up to date. I will click on it, it will open and show a black screen, and then it’ll exit out. The only way for the app to begin working again for me, is to delete it all together, and redownload. Annoying and a bit of an inconvenience. This happens almost daily on my phone.

Keeps crashing
by Sheaaydenjake on 2019/04/24 03:27
This app worked fine up until today and all it wants to do is crash. Haven’t been able to use it at all. I’ve had to use my browser to get on. Extremely frustrating and I don’t know how to fix it. Please fix this and I’ll download again.
Useless
by Gabblebabbi on 2019/04/24 03:22
Every time I get a notification for a comment I’m not tagged in, it just takes me to the page or group the post was on, not even the post, let alone the actual comment. I’ve updated my phone, I’ve updated the app, I’ve deleted it and reinstalled...this is facebook’s screwup and I came here after at least a week of this to write this, and it’s REALLY pissing me off. But it’s not like you read these reviews anyway.

Can’t maintain a constant experience across platforms (do your developers even talk to each other?), can’t tell us what changed with each release (do your developers even talk or record anything?), can’t figure out how to integrate messaging with a common app (do your developers even know how to code?) Perpetual joke platform and “updates”.

WTH is the deal with clicking photos then being told to scroll down and the entire view just freezing. When I just want to click on the photo so that I can see it full view on the screen and save it if I want to. Why can’t you just leave it be??

I honestly don’t understand why you have to have WiFi to download the app. That should be an option not a requirement. Not everyone has access to WiFi.

Okay but unnecessary changes
by pazmeli95 on 2019/04/23 21:23
Love the app but so over all the updates. I don’t use Facebook watch so I don’t want it at the bottom as a shortcut. I would prefer to keep the marketplace there instead of having to go search for the marketplace. Also I have a new iPhone XS Max yet when I upload pictures or videos whether on WiFi or cellular data the quality on Facebook is so crappy. Also with the latest update whenever I comment on a picture/video/post whatever it leaves the comments twice or 3 times instead of the one time I actually meant to comment. Some things need to change.
Upcoming Birthdays...GONE
by Whatchamacallits on 2019/04/23 20:08
Get back to basics already. When exactly did FB decide to remove something as rudimentary as displaying upcoming birthdays under the Events section?? They’ve been missing for months now...seemingly on the iPhone only....and each update comes and goes without it being addressed. FB Help/Support section doesn’t address the issue, despite repeated questions from an angry user community who all seem to be having the same issue. FIX THE ISSUE!!!!
Gone Black Now
by M.L.Sipin on 2019/04/23 19:22
Since Facebook put on there Facebook Police to check every word we write about post and issues on there site, it is no longer worth reading! They are so worried about being Racist nothing can be said anymore about blacks? Truth or not it’s our opinions and that is what made it so much fun reading what others thoughts were! Facebook now has gone black, not worth reading!
FREEZES
by KayP8618 on 2019/04/23 18:48
UPDATE: October 16, 2015 constantly freezes, then crashes. Are you intentionally limiting the length of posts? Facebook has made itself "one of the (almost) necessary evils" in life. If I didn't have family all across the country using FB, I would delete it. I wish I could post negative stars. I got a notice that one of my reviews was removed because it did not "conform". If they want to do this, they should tell you what review was deleted so you know what they are talking about. And it's only on my desktop, not my phone. I hate that I can't view my News Feed in the order I want. I hate the constant videos playing. And it seems that if you don't provide enough personal information, your videos are found to be in violation of someone's copyright. I tried to post a video that I took of my cat sitting on my lap chewing on my buttons. After making it available for viewing, I got notification that it was removed for copyright violation. What? But you can post videos of people stomping animals and torturing. FB you are really screwed up!
Biased Moderators
by skittle.milk on 2019/04/23 18:18
I’ve been muted and banned too many times for having debates with people who throw out racist, trans/homophobic, r*pe and other profane topics and when I report them nothing is done. Yet I have been muted for weeks due to pointing out white men also contribute to crime. That’s not even biased it’s just a fact. Learn to follow your own community standards or just take them down if you’re not going to follow through.
Add split screen
by austin67823098 on 2019/04/23 17:31
It’s ridiculous that an app like Facebook can’t get its act together enough to offer split screen. When I’m using an iPad I don’t need ¾ of the screen taken up by white space so I can have an iPhone sized feed on the left side. It’s a joke that this hasn’t been fixed yet.
Constantly freezes
by NB/AB on 2019/04/23 16:22

Broken
by CellaBellaBiz on 2019/04/23 10:50
I can’t turn off commenting in the groups that I am the admin of. I have contacted Facebook and they don’t have any answers and blame the app. It has slowly not worked and I was able to clear pages, shut it down, uninstall and reinstall, and still I can’t turn off commenting in my groups. Where it is very necessary in lost and found pet groups when a pet owner is found and the post doesn’t need to be continually bumped to the top by happy comments that the pet is home.
Where is MARKETPLACE?
by ImJustClorox on 2019/04/23 09:52

Recent update kills FB on iPad
by Mwmwmwmwxxxxxxxxxxxx on 2019/04/23 08:24
Recent update (217.0) has killed the app on my iPad. Buttons for items such as “settings” no longer function. Hangs up when trying to access certain items (haven’t seen a consistent pattern). Ordering of “most recent” seems to ignore individuals and only show groups. Doesn’t allow access to all items, only the first dozen or so. Poorly tested upgrade.
Ridiculous

you now limit how many posts I can share. That’s ridiculous.

Facebook-Holiday/New Year Update FAIL,
by Owner"s iPhone on 2019/01/02 11:41
Facebook’s continued updates seemed to be offering more functionality. Simplified options for utilizing the platform. I was optimistic that Facebook was actually dedicated to the multi-faceted task of continuing to build-out a global effort to provide a secure social platform with comprehensive security algorithms. For the average citizen end-user, a user-friendly interface, evolving with each update to provide tools for easier account monitoring. Thoroughly vetted add-ons for secure, professional, personalized features for creative communication. Facebook, the company that fought its way to become the dominant, essential tool of the digital age that every person could use to represent them, introduce them, to the world. Billions upon billions of dollars changing hands, billions of people who continue to use the platform, and while a few things improved, so much effort goes into adding the newest, most creative, up-to-date bells and whistles. That race to accommodate the superficial commercialized consumer is a horrendous failure. Facebook is not only on a perilous path operationally, instead of improved security, it has become a threat to every individual who uses it. If the present trend continues. Facebook will be nothing more than a means of access for those of ill intent, those whom we currently feel protected from because we lock our doors and windows.

This app gets worse with every update! Every time I get a notification, I click on the notification to open it and.... nothing. Just the wheel of death! On top of the many other ongoing issues. I would like to see my friends posts, like alllll of them. If I didn’t want to see them I would unfollow or just unfriend them completely. Same with business posts I follow them because I want to see their posts. I do not want to see the same old ads over & over. I would love it if the sort by “most recent” feature actually worked! I want to see the most recent posts first and then go back chronologically from there. NOT: 1 hr ago, 5 minutes ago, just now, 3 days ago, 2 hrs ago, last week, etc that we are getting now! I don’t need to see something over and over again every time someone new comments on it, if I have not commented or followed the post obviously I have moved on. Also I would like to choose what I get notified about. I know we can choose some things but not everything, ie. I do not want to be notified every time someone goes “live” or adds to their story! I love the idea of fb but you have users telling you all the improvements we want and we just get more things we didn’t ask for and half the time they don’t even work correctly.
Glitch Fixes Needed
by jlccourt on 2017/10/14 20:41
Developers need to fix two things: the first is releasing all new status background options to ALL users. I see other users get new background options on a regular basis, and yet, I have had the same 14 options for a long time now. The second thing developers need to fix is the perpetual number 1 on the badge app icon and within the app itself, even if there are no unread notifications. The app’s description in the App Store is that “To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly” and that “Every update to our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.” We’ll, “new features” as of late haven’t been made available to me, and the only “reliability” I’ve encountered lately is the permanent number 1 on my notifications. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on both my phone and tablet to no avail. The problems seem to be account-related as the issues affect my account when I use my laptop, where I don’t use an app. I’ve reported both the lack of status background options for my account as well as the notifications glitch. I’m not all that confident that developers will fix the problems. 🙁
Sad
by teacuptoni on 2018/12/05 05:37
Honestly Facebook has gone down the tubes within the past year or two. The fact that I have so many friends from high school and college and grade school, work ect, but only see about 8 of the same people is awful. The next thing is the fact it’s not only required to have the fb messenger app downloaded but updated as well. It won’t even allow safari to use it in the browser is so obnoxious. Then the fact that group will have so many members posting but yet the most recent of the ones are not immediately available. Even when the notification is clicked it shows posts from hours if not days ago. Appalling. It’s just so unorganized. So really the only way to view what actually notified you is to turn into the FBI agent you used to be when fb was still fresh top dog when MySpace became obsolete just to find the comment your friend replied to on a video in a group you guys are in. And of course last but not least of the downfalls is a video 45 seconds long gets interrupted mid sentence by a totally irrelevant ad or by something that was mentioned in a real life conversation which I just think is totally creepy. Sorry for all the rambling and riñón sentences but I’m just livid that apps force updates and crap when they’re crap and and making money from ads but then turn into their crappiest versions of themselves.
Deeply Disappointed
by nuanceovernovelty on 2018/04/29 12:11
Following the Cambridge Analytica fiasco I considered deleting my account, but decided against it as I use it too much for business. However, that decision was made for me after and my account of >10 years disappeared overnight. My account was hacked, some sort of rule violation occurred, and my account was subsequently disabled. At this point in my story I’m inconvenienced and a bit frustrated, but understanding of Facebook’s policies. As I jump through the requisite hoops to restore my account (verifying my name, contact info, identify, submitting evidence of a hack, and explaining my experience) I see for the first time the true nature of this company. I simply receive a boilerplate email saying my request to restore my account has been denied. There is no way to communicate with a human being, no phone number, no email, no chat support. For a company that prides itself on fostering an environment for open and reasonable communication their silence is deafening and the irony is ripe. Doing the right and decent thing appears to be too much to ask of Facebook. As it is now abundantly clear to me that Facebook’s actions reflect beliefs and values in automated decision making and blanket judgements by an isolated and powerful entity rather than transparency, care for their users/community members, and any sort of channel to truly interact and serve the people who they are obligated to.
Lizardman is Evil
by TigersEye6 on 2019/03/03 23:59
This needs less than 1 star. This whole app is just flat awful. Privacy is LITERALLY nonexistant, of course not only stealing data but also selling it, but that is something everyone already knew, on top of that though, the app just flat never works right. Videos are horrible, some posts load in about 10 minutes, and thats on a collages internet which averages about 2gb download speeds (and its not just on my phone, its on my laptop, and any desktop I use too). Then on top of that even, the videos have a load of ads, and even worse, sometimes when you try to close a video the screen just turns black and basically freezes so you have to restart the whole thing. And when it comes to security you love to argue “we do this to protect users from spam”, no, you are the spam. Everyone knows facebook gets the money from ads, and guess what spams people: ads. And guess who puts those ads there: facebook. You are a lying company. Literally nobody cares over there, you are all stupid, and if you are just a basic worker and actually have an issue with this maybe consider another job. I have no idea what anyone is doing at facebook hq but maybe if you could stop stealing users information and start caring about the quality of your horrible apps and website, that would be great, thanks.
Glitches
by Rickie archer on 2018/01/14 17:08
With a site so big glitches are expected, but I’m tired of going to most recent to see what my friends actually post just to see the same 3 friends’ posts. Typically I see 4 “new” posts (by New I mean ones I have yet to see not recent) then it shows me the highlights of my news feed or what people posted 3 weeks ago that I have yet to see. I have 60 or so friends, 10 don’t really use it, but I find myself only seeing posts from people I regularly talk to in messenger and that’s it. If I don’t talk to them in messenger Facebook doesn’t let me see their posts. I’ve even ensured I’m following them. The next thing is the ads. It’s great Facebook is free and directs people to products they might enjoy, but when I say something is irrelevant why is it continuously shown? “Want some weight loss pills?” Nope I’m ok with being obese thanks. “How about diapers for a baby even though you don’t have one?” Nope. “Oh we noticed you enjoyed that video about makeup maybe you have acne.” Even if I did I wouldn’t care. Some of the ads are depressing, my husband and I can’t have children yet I’m constantly berated by ads about babies, even after I say hide ad, irrelevant, don’t show this again, or hide ads like this. It’s like showing an old person an ad for a funeral home. Can we please at least listen when people say “DON’T SHOW THIS!”
Facebook Ruined by Facebook
by Byronic_Hero on 2019/03/06 14:03
I don’t use Facebook anymore. My declining use can be traced directly back to the day they introduced their ridiculous algorithmic feed and made the chronological feed increasingly difficult to access. My feed became increasingly dominated by a handful of accounts that Facebook thought I wanted to see above all else, for some reason. I have no idea why. I guess that’s what happens when you like a post. My fault I guess? I don’t know how their algorithm weights content and posts, but it does not in anyway align with what I care about or how I would weight things I want to see. All the ridiculous nonsense Clickbait posts that people unthinkingly share end up polluting my feed, drowning out thoughtful posts that take a little bit of time to digest and are thus less “popular.” It’s no wonder Russian trolls decided to use Facebook as a way to spread misinformation like wildfire. They know the algorithms are primed for precisely that kind of popular nonsense. What a shame. Facebook was so great. It helped me feel in touch with so many people after I moved cities. But the algorithm eventually kept them out of my feed. And probably me out of theirs. And I think none of them even post on Facebook anymore unless they want to share baby photos with grandparents. And thus, everyone I know essentially stopped using Facebook.
What the heck???
by QnA_Facts on 2019/01/07 03:28
... 🕕 ... 🕘 ... 😒 For a considerable length of time I've been reporting issue after issue and nothing has been done to respond or resolve any of the reported issues. What I do get is returned hurtful rhetoric that they know what the issue is, but refuse to acknowledge or fix the actual problem. What makes it worse is they continue to censor my voice and ability to utilize my device as I see fit denying my online and real life civil rights. This MUST be addressed and fixed ASAP, as I have done nothing wrong to violate the Terms & Services yet the App and Platforms are consistently violating my rights and utilizing my personal information for their own uses and benefits; all without proper attribution or credit to me. This is beyond acceptable and is severely hampering productivity and my right to peaceful enjoyment and use of services I have paid and continue to pay for. FIX THIS ALL IMMEDIATELY!!! I guess the Facebook organization and or developers have not heard of or don't care about ECPA (Electronic Communications Privacy Act) or the numerous other rules and laws that continue to violated against me. Never once have they indicated to me that I broke any rules, therefore it's unjust that my access and use be denied, subsequently provided erroneous, confusing, and misleading information about the information reported on a multitude of occasions.
Developers left me Disappointed
by audreys_mom on 2018/03/18 12:59
With every new update that comes out I hold my breath, just hoping this will be “the one” that will fix the hodgepodge of issues with Facebook. The one that bugs me most is Marketplace. I’ve emailed support multiple times with no response (except the auto-generated “thanks for your feedback” email, of course). Then finally, 2 weeks after what was my 3rd request in 3 months time, they responded by saying they received my report and that they appreciate my patience and while they can’t update everyone who submits a report, they’re using the report to make FB better - TICKET CLOSED... Really? Not only this but recently I also lost the option to view posts by “most recent”. FB Customer Service/Support and developers just don’t care what users want. They don’t respond to problem reporting in a timely fashion and it’s now been over a year that people have been complaining about not having access to Marketplace, not just me. Although mine hasn’t been gone that long, it’s ridiculous that this issue can’t be resolved! Especially when the ability to access it just disappears one day yet buyers can still see it and send you message about it but, as the seller, you can’t make changes to it and you can’t even view it! I’ve lost sales because of this. Disappointing Facebook!!
Invasion of privacy
by Jack mehoff! on 2018/02/02 07:25
Facebook has blocked my account until I send them proof of my identity. They’re asking to see either my drivers license or credit card with my name on it. Yea ok facebook👌🏻. Why would I share that information with you when I can just create another account with the same name without sharing my personal info? It doesn’t matter what Facebook does a user can always create another account thru a different cell phone. Facebook should just call it quits. they’ve shown they can’t control and often endorse the fake news their site puts out. Their employees are clearly out of touch with their peers and most of the country. It’s blatantly obvious they are over privileged and pretentious people that will never know a “hard days work” and think accountability is something their accountants do. As proof they won’t stop, they’ll continue to run it into the ground by listening to half-wit suggestions from people who are desperately trying to stand out from their coworkers rather than just accepting that the best wheel design is round. Facebook -constantly lowering the bar. Intelligent people know how easy it is to manipulate their lesser counterparts. Facebook doesnt understand this because they are not intelligent but rather inexperienced , self entitled, over confident and pretentious people. INTELLIGENCE CAN NOT BE LEARNED.
Take away the new Snapchat feature! It’s so dangerous!
by Mama's Not Impressed on 2018/08/23 03:19
I’m so frustrated! As a parent, Snapchat is on our list of apps we don’t allow. It was designed by a couple of college students who wanted to facilitate sexting. Fine for adults who are into that, but the problem comes when these platforms are significantly marketed to teenagers! We know cyberbullying and sexting cause psychological damage to teens... except now parents won’t be able to intervene because messages and pictures are able to automatically disappear in a few seconds!! As someone who suffered “predatorial grooming” at the age of four (being coached to trust a 15 year old who then molested me) you just don’t trust teenagers to make responsible choices with that much privacy. I realize people can manually delete messages, but this also takes away that personal choice to retain an abusive message for the purpose of reporting it. You’d have to think fast and screenshot it. Let’s not strip away one more layer of INTENTIONAL accountability. It’s not healthy. If I have to make the decision to delete something so I’m not going to get caught with it, there is a psychological process happening that is important. Knowing it will delete itself....well now it doesn’t matter anymore, does it? Let the mature adults sign up for these features on platforms marketed to adults.
Thanks fb 👎 FOR NOTHING!!!
by ckm556 on 2018/02/26 02:27
Been on for about a year. Started 2 guitar groups and one day about a week ago you decided that I didn’t need an acct anymore and deactivated my acct literally as I’m typing a post. I know what you’re going to tell me... you are going to tell me it’s because I didn’t use my given first name. Well if it was such a problem then you shouldn’t have gave it the ok after you blocked me when I opened it the first tome and I sent a pic of my ID and then you ok’d it. My fb name met the fb policy requirements when I opened my acct!!! Instead you waited until I spent time building my guitar repair business and had hundreds of contacts and spent hours on end building my groups. Now the groups are open with no admin or moderators to deal with anything. I opened another acct IN MY GIVEN NAME!!! and you disabled that in 15 minutes. I opened another acct using a different email address with my given name and you closed it down in about 30 minutes. I sent an appeal about my original acct and haven’t heard a thing. It’s impossible to contact anyone to actually help you get something done. I don’t post anything that is offensive, I rarely talk about anything other than guitar related topics and still I’m banned for no reasonable explanation. Your community help forum is a joke. Thanks a lot fb!!! FOR NOTHING!!!
Updates Ongoing Issues
by HollyL45 on 2018/10/09 19:53
I’m an IT professional, why aren’t your developers testing new development to ensure they haven’t broken previously working basic functionality before releasing a new update? You are ruining the FB experience for your users. Every time you release an update lately something that has always worked no longer works. If I wasn’t dependent on FB to keep up with my friends and family and my professional photography groups I would have deleted it long ago. Most of these marketed “new and improved updates” are anything but and basically useless to the majority of users. Also they are huge updates making it so FB is taking up most of the available space on my phone and I have an IPhoneX 256 GB, not an old phone. I shouldn’t have to delete photos of my family to make room for FB. Notifications still no longer work. This has been going on and repeatedly reported for months. If you want to update something fix what you broke your users would be much happier. Now when I type a comment and make a mistake it won’t let me go back and correct it. It starts deleting everything I previously typed instead of letting me insert additional text or deleted something I typed incorrectly. I have to erase everything and start all over. Very frustrating.
👎Facebook=ПРАВДА (PRAVDA)👎
by planeKrazy on 2018/03/30 05:44
Facebook has tolerance for everything that’s on the ‘left’ or ‘ultra-left’ spectrum of our political divide.. If you’re a centrist or lean somewhat to the ‘right’ you’re out of luck and your views WILL be suppressed through “smart measures”.. A good friend posted a 9/11 memo picture with caption to always remember. Within minutes his account was banned and he had to start a new one with the help of the trusted friends feature. I and several other of his trusted friends wrote to Facebook asking why his account had been shot down? (We had snap shots of the last message he posted). No response from Facebook. Frankly the seemingly ‘random’ erasing of peoples Facebook accounts is very worrisome. I say random but in reality their preferred “FB erasing victim” seems to be a conservative user, some of them have had their accounts for more than a decade. My friend was just such a case. No way to appeal, Facebook simply won’t respond to emails and messages. One day you have an account and the next day you don’t. Absolutely no way to appeal or even get an explanation as to why? Shocking.. Never thought an American company would be so vehemently anti-American. I recently sold all my shares of Facebook, I think this attitude will hurt their long term value.. ___ To “GIM8789” reviewer - I totally agree with you!
App keeps backing me out
by jlFinchmockingbird94 on 2018/07/13 22:48
Ever since the most recent update, there have been multiple occasions where the app will just back me out, taking me straight to my home screen without reason or warning. This usually happens within seconds of entering the app, and never happens just once at a time. Rather, it will happen every single time I try to re-enter the app, often continuing to do so repeatedly, until it finally decides to work normally again. It has proven to be impossible to predict when this problem will occur, and how long it will continue before returning to its proper functioning. At first I thought it was my WiFi and/or network connection, but I now know it can’t be attributed to either one, given that it has now happened on several WiFi networks AS WELL AS while using data. I also have the newest version of iOS, so it can’t be explained by not having updated software, and I have the app set to where I always stay signed in, so I know it has nothing to do with my login, either. I’m sure I can’t be the only one who has been experiencing this, even if I happen to be the only one writing a review about it. Please work on figuring out the cause of this issue and finding a solution, because it has made using the app a complete hassle and annoyance.
What is going on with the news feed???
by NicoleRose215 on 2018/09/12 05:50
Up until about a month ago, I never had a problem with the news feed. I’d open my app and I’d go to my Most Recent news feed and I’d see the most recent posts in order, starting with the newest post and then the one before that and so on. It was in chronological order. It made sense and it’s exactly what I wanted to view. Now when I go to my Most Recent news feed, I see something that was posted 2 mins ago, and then the next one is something from 6 hours ago, and then the next one is from 47 mins ago, and then the next one is from last night at 6:24pm, and then the next one is from Monday at 10:07am, and then the next one is from 3 hours ago and like what in God’s name is friggin happening here??????? I’d be better off just calling my friends and asking them to tell me what they’ve posted on Facebook lately because by the time I see it in my news feed, it could be week-old news! You know, sometimes certain pages post important things or time-sensitive information and if the most recent posts aren’t coming up correctly, that’s a huge problem. What’s the point of using this app if it doesn’t work correctly?? Get it together, Facebook!!

Account recovery
by Snuggles2012 on 2018/07/12 01:08
Recently got a new phone and tried to recover my account by phone number. Failed miserably. My account has automatically logged in on my phone for so long I couldn’t remember my log in. When trying to recover my account I was linked to and recovers an account that was not mine. Actually the account was of someone from another country that hadn’t been active since 2012. I no longer have access to old emails or phone numbers. I tried to contact the support team telling them I could provide pictures or personal info to prove that I was the owner of my account that I was trying to log into and have yet to have a response after 3+ days. I tried making a brand new profile on my pc ( with a new email that I have never used for fb before) and got as far as setting a profile picture and adding friends when I was printed with a security message . So now am also locked out of a brand new profile. I wished MySpace was still around because I would honestly just stop using fb . Fb is the main access I have to out of state family as well as uploaded pictures and memories that were not backed up anywhere else. I just want my account back. Why can’t fb have security questionnaire for recovery? Why can’t someone contact me to help me ?

Wish I could delete
by clcx43 on 2018/08/17 00:13
The only reason I still have facebook is because my school posts important updates at times. I get notifications constantly from facebook telling me so and so posted a picture or so and so commented on a post...things like that. These are usually people I don’t even interact with and I do not want these notifications. The only way to stop getting them is to completely unfollow the person, which then takes their posts out of my news feed as well, which I do not want to happen. And even when I unfollow people my phone continues to give me notifications of new people posting things that I don’t care about. The only reason I don’t turn off Facebook notifications all together is, like I said, so I can get important updates from my school’s groups. I’ve turned off every notification setting within the Facebook app that I can and continue to get these notifications on my phone. It is extremely annoying. I will also get badge app notifications saying I have 4 new notifications when I don’t actually have any. Extremely annoying and makes me think I have an important notification to check when I rarely actually do. Will delete my account as soon as I’m done with school if this isn’t fixed.
So seeing as others have the same issues
by SVas85 on 2018/10/19 15:41
I’m all for being able to connect with family and friends. Not everyone has the luxury of international calling, unlimited data/talk/text, etc. that being said, I’ve gotten to a point where I keep my account Deactivated, and my messenger active, I’m not a fan of the fact FB is breeding grounds for a Petri dish variety of BAD MEDIA - like the super negative stuff - that are put there intentionally for others to repost because it triggers them, or tempts them. I personally decided not to even have cable in my home, for the sheer fact that as a kid in the 90’s there was good news, as well as not so great news. Now, it’s all negative and bad. It gets old. Furthermore, I had the WORST issue trying to get away from a stalker that made a total of 8 false profiles to repetitively contact me, even after I blocked him every time. I DID file a report, and nothing happened. So I was forced to delete my account and make a new one with a false name. Whereas it’s convenient to use for communication, I’m not FBs biggest fan, due to the fact it’s been made into (as I said) a breeding ground for negativity. Just saying...
Ugh.
by Mdralfw10 on 2017/12/15 04:49
I had a previous review from years ago, but I figured I'd update it. This app still doesn't work right. I understand that there's bound to be an issue or two with any app, but the fact that it still crashes 10+ times a day, reloads while I'm reading something even if I've clicked on the status, doesn't load videos very well, and is glitchy. Facebook all together is starting to be worthless. I tried to upload a video of my 8 month old dancing to music on a cd of mine, and it wouldn't let me because there was music playing. That's fine, but then it blocked me from uploading videos all together even though it gave the option to discard or post the video. I chose to discard the post. That's not an app issue, but it's a Facebook issue. I see so many people get their posts taken down when there's nothing wrong with it, but by all means, keep letting the photos/videos of dead babies show up. I guess that's ok, but when you have live babies dancing, it's not. It also seems a little racist that if I put a video up of a Caucasian person singing/rapping it doesn't tell me I can't upload it, but when I try to upload a video of an African American singing/rapping it won't let me 💁🏼. Facebook seems to have their priorities backwards.
Facebook
by My Webster's Dic. on 2019/01/25 09:53
I have enjoyed Facebook for a solid 7-8 years now. There are a great many things I love about Facebook. But there are times when Facebook does fall short of that Knightly perfection we all expect to have 24/7. When that happens, we all come out like a pack of grizzly bears gnarling at the zoo keepers for not bringing our dinner on time or forgetting those play toys they promised. Non-the-less these interruptions sometimes seem to disrupt our lives right when we least expect it to right. Then our lives have been thrown all out of sync right? Well folks, instead of causing ourselves more problems and heartaches than a of us need or want.... how about we find a different approach? How about we create a new picture for this situation? What do you say!! Huh? Ok so Facebook is having some problems. So let’s give em some time and let’s go horseback riding, play a game of chess or Monopoly, wash the dog/dogs, go for a hike, or... Gather some friends and go help an elderly person. The point here is to get away from the computer and think about someone or something else. Facebook will be there when you get back. Ok?!? Good Luck! 👍🏼
I thought upgrades are supposed to fix “bugs”?
by Carrtunz on 2019/01/22 01:06
I am really getting tired of all the bugs in the Facebook app. I take every update available and my phone apps and operating system are always the latest available. But yet Facebook still gives me nothing but grief. My notifications very often won’t refresh and just freeze or it just keeps quitting and closing the app every 10 seconds, if I can get it to stay open for that long. No matter how many times Log out and log back in or delete the app and reinstall it, it doesn’t stop. No one at Apple can figure it out not can FB support. After a while it stopped for a few weeks and I thought I was home free! But NOPE! Now my entire Newsfeed and Notifications are quitting and won’t stay open or refresh! If I didn’t have so many school and work friends on FB I would get rid of it completely!!!! When the hell are you people going to fix all the bugs and let your users have a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying experience??? MySpace has less problems! You’ve made enough money off this app to fix it, Zuckerberg!!! Hoping a new and better social media app comes out soon! I’m disappointed and disgusted!
Racial Discrimination Against The Black Community On Facebook
by Rubies-Sapphire on 2018/11/28 04:19
Black people are finding that their attempts to create "safe spaces" on Facebook for conversation among themselves are being derailed by the platform itself. Non-black people are reporting what are meant to be positive efforts as hate speech, despite them often not violating Facebook’s terms of service. Their content is removed without notice. Accounts are suspended indefinitely. When these rulings are upheld with little recourse, it upends the communities of color Facebook claims to be supporting. It decreases the likelihood that people will continue to engage at the same level on our platform. Even high-profile figures who are plagued with these issues sometimes have to wait until it’s a major press story for it to be addressed. There is a prevailing theory among many black users that their content is more likely to be taken down on the platform than any other group. Even though the theories are mostly anecdotal, Facebook does little to dissuade people from this idea. Black people continue to use the platform because for many it is still their best way to connect directly with the causes they care about. Our communities should be able to trust that we have their best interests at heart.
Locked Out of Account
by MKaip on 2017/11/19 14:07
If I could give 0 Stars, I would.. Facebook has locked me out of my account for days, saying they need to review a photo of me. There is no one to contact or email to fix it. I have had my account since about 2005 so it doesn’t make sense.. The Help Page is of no help because it consists of regular people who do not have access to unlock accounts. Facebook needs to have a direct contact via Chat or email to assist their customers. When I was able to use the app, it had a lot of bugs and annoying features. It would randomly refresh on its own in the middle of me reading comments, have no rhyme or reason for organizing posts on the News Feed, and constantly suggest potential friends. Just because one friend of mine is friends with someone, doesn’t mean that I want to be. My biggest pet peeve with Facebook is how invasive it is with announcing to all of your friends any time you like a page or comment on a public post. I feel like I can’t comment on a news article without every one of my friends seeing it on their News Feed so I stopped commenting on things a long time ago. This app is terrible, and I can’t even go experience the awfulness that it is because my account is locked..
New update causing newsfeed to freeze
by Pikaboo09 on 2019/02/17 14:13
Didn’t have this problem until yesterday when the new update kicked in. Everything else works fine, notifications, clicking through group posts and whatnot. But as soon as I go to news feed before or after doing other things on the app it just freezes. I’ve reset the app, I’ve reset my phone, I’ve cleared all of Facebook’s caches, and I’m going to try uninstalling and reinstalling next. On another note, I was reminded after seeing someone else’s review about the group notifications as well. It’s rather annoying that Group notifications for new posts and what not see to be randomized. Sometimes I won’t get the notification for a new post, but suddenly I get one of a post that was posted hours or even days ago. The most annoying part about is when you go to the group and try to look at recent member posts, they’re randomized too, there doesn’t seem to be a way to set it to most recently posted, I don’t know what it’s set to but it’s not even most liked or most commented, it’s absolutely random and that boggles my mind.
The Facebook App imposes its own browser
by justsomeguy on 2018/04/27 14:08
According to the Moderator of a respected Geek discussion site, if you’re using the Facebook App to browse Facebook and you hit a link on the App, this opens up a different browser than your smart phone’s Chrome or Safari browser. Facebook’s App has its own browser, or, more accurately, its own web view (basically a browser control that uses the native web browser’s renderer but has its own session management, including its own cookies. The App Store description does not make this clear; nor does it explain why the FB App is designed this way; hence users have no info to help them decide whether to use or not use the App. I’m not saying the FB App is bad; it clearly does provide a richer user experience than simply logging into FB’s website via Safari. But it raises doubts, including what other manipulations or re-directions may be occurring without your knowledge when you skip the App and log in with your preferred, native browser.
Irritating App
by Diane Harris on 2017/10/10 19:38
The app has been driving me crazy for months now. If I stay on the Facebook page, it only blacks out once or twice per evening. If I want to read something (my cousin's newspaper article, for instance) posted by my friends, the app blacks out every time and if I want to continue on Facebook, I have to open the app all over again and hope I can find my place. I'm almost ready to delete the darn thing! Wondering if it's worth the frustration! I've written my problems to the staff through Facebook three times and have received no recommendations. Can the app be fixed? Well, it's about 2 ,months later and nothing has improved. The app still freezes and blacks out. If I try to move from a post to attached info it freezes. Moving down the page to more posts makes it freeze or it blacks out completely. Then I get to start all over opening the app yet again. This is really getting to be more trouble than it's worth. It would be nice if the it people would at least respond in some way. A lot of us are feeling ignored. Not good business practice!
Someone LIED to you
by So Done! on 2018/10/24 16:03
Whomever told you this latest update was a great idea, SHOULD BE FIRED. 1)When notifications come in that I’ve been tagged or someone has replied to a comment I made, it no longer takes you to the post, just to the comment. So if I commented last week and I get a reply today I have absolutely no idea what the original post was about. 2) A notification disappears after I look at it. So if I have to refer back to it for any reason, I have to somehow find the page of the original poster and then hunt for the post. STUPID IDEA 3) When going to some notifications, when you click on it it takes you to a blank post. I see the persons name, the time they posted and maybe if someone reacted to it, but absolutely no post at all. There’s even comments on it but I see no post at all. Yes I have access to their page, I haven’t been blocked and they call me to say “did you see my last post” and all I see is nothing. 3) Auto refresh is annoying. Someone posts an article and I take 2-3 minutes reading it and when I go to comment on it, you’ve refreshed my feed. Thanks for nothing. I’m sick of y’all. If I didn’t need this app to keep in contact with family around the globe, I’d delete it.
If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it
by Matti moo on 2018/12/03 20:37
Nobody wants a game page or a group page. It’s amazing how many different ways you want to send me push notifications, that I literally only click on so that it will go away. I went in to change my notification settings and it turns out you will not let me turn off all group notifications at once and I have to go through a list and manually select out of 100 groups which ones I want, the slider for all is greyed out. This is totally unnecessary, and nobody asked for this. Why do I have a notification for every time someone goes live? Anytime an event is added at a venue I checked into ONE TIME that’s across the world in a different country? Facebook notifications used to notify me when someone wanted to talk to me, and I’ve done my best to continually update my setting but it’s getting crazy. Now I’ll have 7 notifications and check it and not a single one is about a friend I have that was reaching out to me. Events, game page, so and so went live, so and so checked in safe, I have memories from 10 years ago to look at, so and so posted in this group, like I do. Not. Care. And I don’t need a red push notification making it seem like I should.
No notifications about my posts!
by Sheryl1468 on 2018/11/12 03:56
For the last 2 months, the notification settings in the app are a complete mess. The app will have the red number, but one of them are about my own posts. Any reactions or comments to MY posts don’t load in the list of notifications, so I have no idea about comments or reactions unless I actually go to the post itself. All I see are notifications about my friends’ posts. Further, while the news feed works fine, the list of notifications is limited to EXACTLY 20 notifications. When I scroll to the bottom, the page just jumps and doesn’t refresh to show any more than exactly 20. Maybe once a week I will scroll and be surprised to be able to scroll past 20, but it’s not because of anything I did or didn’t do. AND once I scroll back to the top of the list and scroll back down, I’m limited to 20 again. AND notifications for my posts still aren’t in the list. I have a brand new iPhone 6s Plus (3 months), so if Facebook doesn’t fix it soon, I am going to be convinced that the problems are a way to push people to upgrade their phones to the newest versions.
Getting worse instead of better
by CyndiB51 on 2018/01/27 16:23
I can see that rating the app makes no difference to the developers. The same problems I complained about last year still exist, and some pictures and GIFs never load. And now the notification that someone liked your post has to be clicked on to remove it from the notification list. So you end up having to go back to the post twice to remove the "like" notification and to read the comment they left. So useless. One thing these bad-to-worse updates are doing for me is helping me to break my FB addiction. 2017: The latest update (7/1) did nothing to make the slowness any better. I am spending less time on Facebook because of this crappy app. Clicking on a notification takes almost a minute to load, very aggravating. And please please bring back the option that allows us to choose not to see all our friends' likes. I had to hide several of my friends just because their likes flooded my newsfeed. The "I don't want to see this" option doesn't work for likes. Also, it randomly skips back to the top of the feed so that you lose your place when scrolling down. The people who update this app must never use it.
Shutting down
by Amyncosolo on 2017/10/03 06:32
I don't know why but lately Facebook app has been shutting down and going to my main screen while I'm reading something😡very annoying!!! Fix this bug please! It also refreshes on its own. That's really annoying too when you are going through comments and then back out wanting to continue where you were before going to the comments and it decides on its own "nope you were done scrolling" 🙄 Nothing has been fixed. It still does all of the above even tho there's been tons of updates. Seriously fix this issue it's annoying! Stars went down bc it still hasn't been fixed STILL REFRESHES ON ITS OWN! When will this be fixed??? In the middle of reading something in Facebook and go to my internet for a second and then back to Facebook and it decides I was done and refreshes and sends me back to the top! Very annoying and j lose posts I was in the middle of reading. Why won’t you fix this issue. Many people have the same issue yet you don’t fix it!! Stars went down yet again bc it’s not fixed. One 1 star to go and honestly if I could give it a 0 star I would! Fix the freaking problem already!!!
Seriously?!?!?! By Highnessty
by CAQueen on 2018/12/19 18:55
First, a note 2 all of u who r bothered by the “privacy issue”. FB IS NOT PRIVATE! If u do not want 2 b seen online... DON’T. GO. ONLINE. I don’t trust people who want 2 hide. Seriously. I have no issue keeping it simple & transparent. If I was online & some1 asks whether I was or not I tell them the truth. Feels much better than getting caught in a lie. Facebook is not a place of privacy/peace. Period. U want privacy & peace? Turn off your computer, phone, tablet, or @ least turn off your WiFi & go read a book or watch a movie. & if u do not want it on FB, how about, oh, I dunno... NOT POSTING IT ON FB?!?! There’s a nu idea. Now, this 1 is directly 2 FB; stop “fixing” 💩that isn’t broken! Jesus Christ on crutches! Just STOP already! Every time I get used 2 the nu format u change it! Second, I am legally blind. WHY DID U SHRINK THE PRINT & squeeze a bunch of stuff on my homepage/feed?!?! Now it looks 2 busy, like a newspaper. I stay away from newspaper 4 that very reason. I was overjoyed when the very first 📱 came out bcuz I could read my news in large print. Now that purpose is defeated. People, stop complaining about your “privacy”. & FB, please. 4 the love of all that is holy, get the large print format back. PLEASE.
So unfair
by nah fah on 2018/12/14 02:52
So I’ve been using Facebook for 5 years now and I thought I liked it or loved it. Everyone seem to moved on to new social media while I’m still using Facebook on Facebook I have so much memories a picture of my grandma who had passed away a voice clips from her and I thought connected with family and a lot of my grandma voice clip are left in Facebook when she passed a few week ago before I sleep I play that clips but then one night everything changed about what I thought about Facebook there were this dude who sent me nude and I told him to leave me alone he wouldn’t at a time I didn’t thought if reporting him cause it didn’t come across my mind I was too tired and when it came across it was too late the dude reported me before I reported him and the Facebook sent me an email saying my Facebook permanently been disabled and all it comes across my mind was I didn’t do anything I sending many many replied back and today it came bad and said that that’s their last email for me and I was crying cause all my messages from my grandma the memories and her voice clips I cried and now I feel like it’s unfair I’ll never thought of hating Facebook but now I can’t say the same sadly.
Posts not visible
by Catrophy2 on 2018/10/24 02:04
The latest update is a mess. The gifs are now shown in a different vertical format with the lowest ones not fully visible or clickable. Posts (your own and/or those of friends) are not showing up for hours to days. Some people can see them and comment while others see no post, only the comments. The app resets your privacy setting to default to showing your location so that FB can yet again bypass your own preference for PRIVACY and send you location-based ads and suggested events near you even though they PROMISED to respect your privacy from now on. DAYS have passed (close to a week) since the posts are not showing for everyone and no fix has yet been released. Worse, FB does not feel the need to tell you what’s in each update of the FB and Messenger apps so you have no idea whether you want to update it or not. Not to mention their selective censorship and removal of accounts they get political pressure to remove without offering any warning to the account holder or opportunity to save photos or posts before losing complete access. A very bad decision that is leading many loyal followers to leave FB.
Marketplace ratings.
by Westinian on 2018/07/03 01:11
I think the marketplace is probably the worst way to sell/buy things. Only because you can rate people without them actually buying anything. I found this out when someone rated me badly for no reason other then me telling him no that’s too low for an item he was trying to buy. It’s very unfair. Look at how other selling/buying apps do it. You CAN NOT rate anyone without them BUYING something first. But it’s “okay” because you’re just recommending the seller/buyer. But they can just hide there reviews so no one knows what you actually have. So there is no point in a rating system. And they can only rate you if you message back or they message you back. So if you try selling something and someone is just being mean they can go around messaging people after getting a reply then rate them badly. I know I’m not the only one who has this problem. But it is a BIG problem with the marketplace. It is very unfair and can impact seller and buyers. And personally I don’t think a social app should try to be a marketplace as well anyway. It kinda defeats the whole purpose of being sociable when the market place is full of people who just want to ruin your reputation.
Buggy
by imbeginningtohateapple on 2018/10/13 00:04
This app is very buggy and hasn’t been through enough testing. Thorough testing would show many bugs including not being able to see full photo sets from the Facebook feed without clicking on them one by one and then even when I click on the original post, it will only show me the preview photos and I am able to swipe through them (the first four or so), but not the rest. Secondly, there are menu issues that differ from the normal site which make it confusing and difficult to go to google for assistance in finding something. Lastly, to expand from the last point, some links are difficult to find. For example, an event I had just clicked “interested” on before leaving the page did not show up on the main events page. It took me searching the name of the event to find it when it could have been two clicks away. Efficiency is an issue with this app and it does have bugs, but I use it to avoid having to download messenger. I don’t use it often, but might start if they made it more user friendly (ha).
Does nothing but frustrate
by lilspiffy on 2018/12/11 06:31
The latest update makes every photo rotate to fit the screen no matter the orientation that’s locked on your device. The “most recent” page includes the most recent comments (seriously!?) and not just posts. So you have to scroll through posts from a month ago if a friend said “nice” on it today. The fact that you can’t turn off notifications for friend suggestions (Yes, suggestions!) finally had me turn off all notifications all together. Then it started notifying me anyway that a friend had commented on some random post to try to entice me into turning notifications back on. Really? You then notify me of something I do not want in order to convince me that notifications are great??... ugh. As if that weren’t enough, they created the “marketplace” and put the notification numbers on it. I hate those little numbers. This forces me to go to the marketplace tab to make it stop screaming little red numbers at me. Reddit gets it. Let us actually see what we want to see in the order in which it was received. If we don’t want to see political crap, let us block it and not the beloved family member who is driving you nuts with Trump posts.
So buggy
by JuliaK123 on 2018/05/07 17:15
I get I have an older iPhone with less storage, but 6 years of pictures taking up less space than this app? Really? I hate deleting and reinstalling, but why isn’t there another option? It consumes battery and memory like no other app. Also- what’s up with all the adds? I did the “see these people first” but instead I have to see a my post/rant regarding a traffic jam from 6 years ago and an add about some gel makeup or Walmart. I understand needing to make money via selling adds but there’s gotta be a better way of doing it. If every time I open the app for 2 weeks I’m presented with the same add- that eats up battery because it’s running music and video and my phone dies cuz it drained 7% of my battery in the process. How is that actually going to help sell the product? Maybe a small window on the side, so your friends posts- or at the very least “see first” can be seen first. Don’t make “go live” so easy to accidentally hit. Its constant and Im ready to throw my phone and run when it starts. How often does the avg person want to “go live”? Common sense: ease of accessibility should correlate to use.
Another update, another fail
by K_Dubbs77 on 2017/11/09 17:30
***I stick with my original review because it still very much holds true...and now after the latest “update”, any time you click on a post, all of the comments are blank. Get your act together fakebook Seriously, for all your pathetic attempts at updates that simply only erase negative comments, could you actually fix something in it. It's bad enough you ignore all of the comments you receive, but you make the app worse with every update. To the point now that my news feed is a cluttered mess with things you think I want to read, that repeat from days earlier, just now in an a more unappealing format. "Every update includes improvements for speed and reliability"...yea, not so much. There's nothing improved or faster, as usual per every update it's slower, worse, and buggier than the previous version...so how about finally addressing some of the issues this app has had for the past two plus years that the users continue to point out yet you developers continue to ignore, instead of adding pointless features that nobody cares about anyway. The one star rating I'm forced to give this is way beyond more than it deserves.
Enough with refreshing the newsfeed!
by Kristycake on 2017/11/06 15:58
I never write reviews, but these recent updates make me want to delete Facebook. 6 months ago, if I needed to pause my Facebook scrolling go do something else, I would just click someone’s picture and it would “hold my place” in my newsfeed. This was great. I’m a mom to a toddler and I oftentimes have to multitask. NOW, if I switch to a different app or put my phone down for 10 SECONDS to do something else, my newsfeed refreshes, and starts at the top. This is infuriating when I’m in the middle of reading an article or looking at an album of pictures. What is the purpose of this? Who is it benefitting? Certainly not your users. I find myself getting on Facebook less and less these past few weeks because I get more annoyance than enjoyment out of it. Do you not do any kind of market research before you implement these things? And please, get rid of the camera. Everyone and their brother has a camera on their phone. I think we’re set! I’m tired of swiping left to exit a post and accidentally hitting the camera which takes 10 seconds to load. I can’t imagine what your UI/QA teams get paid to “ok” these poorly planned “enhancements”.

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