So the most recent update now adds a bunch of features to the list that pops up when you tap on the sub menu on the top right of a post. It used to be simple and could navigate it using one hand comfortably, and now that's no longer the case unless you have very long thumbs. The app is good, but that small change has made the user experience rather poor for me now. Full Review

When selecting picture to upload it shows all your pictures in one folder. Imagine scrolling through 1000+ pics. Bring my album view back so i can just select the album to upload. You managed to do it in the messenger. What prevents you from doing it in this app??? Oh and quit updating the main page when i come back to the post i was looking for and then tuck it in 400 scrolls later ...ugh Full Review

I have an idea though if you are going to change the layout of the app, or website you should give the billion or more people on Facebook a heads up so they don't complain. Personally I love it when it changes! It gives me a challenge! Thank you for creating this social media. I can keep in touch with lots of people that I wouldn't be able to otherwise! Since update my Facebook application doesn't work. If I use my Google Chrome browser it does on my phone. Full Review

Lately, when someone tags me, i can't click on it, i have to go to their page to see it. Every time i check my notifications, i have to scroll way up! You should put on Market Place a place where we can report no-shows so other people know not to meet with them. Hey that would be cool, if you could make a spot on marketplace for an auction but don't have to ship. How come when I scroll down in a group, it stops and won't let you go further down? can you make it so we can search our items on marketplace, so it's faster instead of scrolling and looking in our items please. Why does this keep happening? Everytime I tag someone on someone's page I'm following, it doesn't comment, instead it goes to that person's messenger! Full Review

Looks like i am not the only person who is having issues with this app. Release the previous version thst worked till this is fixed come on. Thursday 21 Dec 2017 1. The app does not allow me to edit my comments to posts any more. 2. When creating posts in the app can only add one photo or video at a time. 3. When sharing more than one photo from gallery or google photos app etc it would be nice to be able to reorder and delete photos 4. The 360 photo view has stopped working. Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Android 5.0.2 Please fix these errors. Will give 5 stars when these are sorted. Full Review

Facebook has gone way down hill. It started as a great way to keep up with family and friends, but now it's only videos and all the videos have ads in the middle of them. I was fine when the occasional sponsor video was there. I could just keep scrolling. But the ads in the middle of videos are what really killed it for me, just let me watch the video! I will no longer be using facebook because of thid Full Review

Disaster of an app. Cannot uninstall this spyware. Kills phone battery. Continuous notifications whenever anyone posts on their wall, I only need notifications if they post on mine. Also constantly creating a badge notification for a messenger alert that doesn't really exist. Now it is trying to be a store, this is not good at what it is meant to do, I would not trust it as a store. And it has now added a camera app to the app, like we don't already have one on our phone.

The newest update sucks. Reading comments is extremely irritating, and you can't even edit your own comments. Especially not if there's a picture in the comment because there stupid reccomend comments take up half the page and the picture blocks out your comment. Put it back the way it was before. And get rid of the stupid emoji things on comments too. It makes it a pain in to scroll through comments and eat popcorn. Full Review

This newest version sucks. It wouldn't load my notifications or let me see any pages. My news feed contained all old posts. I deleted and am trying to reinstall. Hopefully this will fix the problem. Also when trying to uninstall, my whole phone froze for a while then did this whacky stuff when it finally unfroze. I think there may be a virus in this new version or something. Please fix!

Unable to download photos from friends album. Disappointing Please provide coloured background and multiple images/videos uploaded options on Facebook pages too. Currently it's restricted only to user profile. Please provide option to upload multiple videos and photos from Facebook app to pages too. Missing the most essential feature. Images and videos not loading over WiFi but fine with mobile data. Please fix. Full Review

I still hate the fact that the app decides what see first. Also suggests friends from random idiots. When I tell it to remove they show up again further down the page. CRAP! Edit 9/17 Still get "People you may know" from random people. When I sent and remove the same people show up again and again and again. FIX THIS! EDIT 12/17- Still get the same deal. No changes. FB does not listen to input! Full Review

Nothing is more glorious on facebook, than it deciding I was done reading whatever post I was reading, and self-refreshes itself so that I can't finish reading what I was reading. Nothing is more satisfying than looking through posts, just to have something interesting come up, and facebook decided "this is a good time to refresh the home page" and I can't really even start reading what I wanted to read. Absolutely amazing feature. 10/10. Wish everything would hinder my online enjoyment. Full Review

This app is hot garbage. Every update renders it less and less functional. It crashes my phone (running Android 7.0) frequently. I can't use the search feature in the app. I can't comments on most posts. My notifications don't show up for days and when they do, they're in the most nonsensical order. I wish I could give it zero stars. Full Review

The last update is terrible. It bumps me back to the top of my feed all the time; read an article, exit out to my news feed, refreshed back to the top. Everything feels off and counterintuitive. JUST LIKE LAST TIME. Also, with this update, the aesthetics are different for no apparent reason. Why is this Android app always SO bad?? Full Review

As everyone else is experiencing. Everytime I click to review my notifications. It takes me all the way to the bottom and I have to scroll up plenty of times to see my most recent. Worst part also is the audio of the videos. For some reason: a video plays, I keep scrolling, I pass like 4 posts already and that first video is still playing! I even had a video play even after I had clicked to review my profile. So annoying. Please fix ASAP!!! Full Review

Keepa.crashing when you goto a live feed. You can hear the audio in the background. When your try to reopen the app it goes to the newsfeed and audio just keeps playing in the background. I've noticed it crash a lot lately. Then when you reopen the app it has a loading status bar that loads before the app actually reopens. Other than that, no complaints Full Review

For the last week or so the app crashes without being in use. I've had to uninstall then reinstall it about eight times now. If I could actually remove it from my phone I would at this point but maybe you guys could figure out how to not have it crash every other day for me. Full Review

Issues below fixed. However, new comment format blocks some reactions in replies. Will give 5 stars when that's fixed and no other issues arise. //// Current version; the share feature is only allowed via message, not to a profile/group/etc. Video playback is messed up. Will work for a little while, then it freezes, then the audio only plays from the start. Will update feedback when these issues are fixed. Full Review

Stop showing me 'notifications' that are Days old! So much for being current with what my folks are doing. Was that not the point of this tool? When I stop a video, I want to STOP THE VIDEO. so you should STOP the Sound! STOP FORCING THE ORIENTATION OF MY SCREEN! But gee thanks for all the extra ads... not. "Upgrade"? You need to look up the definition. Full Review

The app is mostly fine. It's just frustrating on two counts - the first is that the feed refreshes after you read an article, so you come back to share and then the link/post disappears. Secondly, with the most recent update, I receive random notifications on my device even though I've disabled all notifications. Full Review

I love being on Facebook and having it on my phone makes it easy to connect with family and friends... I just installed the update tonight and now my news feed won't even load... I was trying to figure out why my page had not had anything new since this morning, when I decided to install the new update. Now I'm still getting notifications, but I'm unable to get anything to load... it is frustrating!!!! Full Review

This review is for the latest update. My phone (galaxy s8+) auto updated last night and it's terrible. The app literally will not open at all. It stays on the blue Facebook logo screen with the loading bar. But when the bar gets to full, it won't open! Why have an update that won't let me open the dang app!? I used this app a lot too. I really liked it before the latest update. If this problem can get fixed, it would be 5 stars. Full Review

I have an HTC One A9 and this app isn't letting me edit my comments. I've tested it on multiple apps and editing comments works. On the website it works as well but it just isn't working on the app. I hope a future update can come out for this app and allow me to edit comments once again, then i will leave a 5 star review Full Review
