taylorboyer - Functional, But Needs a Major Design Change
Facebook is an average social media app that is nice for communicating with friends and family for free (via Messenger). But, with that being said, it is time for Facebook to release a major design update for the mobile app. Often, when I am checking the reactions to my posts on Facebook, the reactions never load, are miscounted, or not updated. This is example number one of why Facebook needs to seriously upgrade. One thing that a lot of Facebook mobile app users have been waiting for is a dark mode for the app! It has been released across multiple platforms, including instagram, which is owned by Facebook. They released a dark mode for desktop users & the Messenger app, and it is beyond time for the mobile users to have the option for dark mode on the Facebook App. One last example of something that Facebook needs to update is it’s variety. Messenger only having a few color-themed backgrounds to choose, for example. Other than a design update, the app is very useful for communication, businesses, memes, inspiration, etc. It is also a good way to pass the time.
HollyL45 - App is useless
Facebook had become basically unusable for months. Many users repeatedly post the same issues without any response or resolution from Facebook. I’m an IT professional it appears the app is incapable of keeping up with the volume, maybe server issues. The app freezes constantly and crashes. Isn’t working at all while on wireless have to turn off my wireless to have any hope of being able to review my notifications. Anytime I get a new notifications it throws me out of where I am and back to the beginning of my notifications. Then I have to start all over again paging through the hundreds of notifications I receive to try to find where I previously left off which is next to impossible due to the endless freezing and crashes. Notifications I previously reviewed continue to show unread making it impossible to figure out which ones I’ve reviewed. The app has gotten totally frustrating to use to the point it’s taking me several hours a day just to get through notifications, there aren’t enough hours in the day to deal with Facebook which is slowing becoming a full time job to deal with. It’s a good thing it’s free because no one would pay for software that doesn’t work and provides no customer service or issue resolution. They constantly make so called updates that break previously working functionality. The updates are unwanted by the users, what we want is a reliable app not a bunch of bells and whistles that do nothing to improve the user experience.
Lynzee89 - A lovely wretched book to put your face in
I am 40 yrs old. I am not a big social media person but since Im old I’ve been more akin to facebook. I was astounded when I was able to send a private message on Instagram and have the capability to delete it prior to the person reading it!!! Facebook has the advantage and disadvantage of offering the capability to find/reconnect with old friends. I wasnt on myspace or facebook during the year of my 10 yr highschool graduation so I didnt get an invite to that, luckily I was on facebook for my 20th...(I guess that’s just the way things are now...but alot of people miss out because they aren’t into social media and, most likely is a decision they won’t regret. Lol I remember when I first found out about facebook, it was prob 2005, after I graduated university, my younger friend/roommate from college was telling me Facebook has as this college social networking place, but it was only for students, undergrads..She went on and on about it..I thought it sounded great and was really surprised she was into such a thing. Ha! As soon as facebook became what it became, she deleted her account and continues to want no part in facebook ever since...I remember why she said to me, “Lindsey, this was a company that truly had something really great and then they trashed it, they ruined it.” Course I wouldn’t know, took me until 2011 I think before I would commit to joining. I is a lovely and wretched book to put your face in.
Brulygirlnow - You’re not allowed to be yourself anymore
Facebook used to be a fun place to connect with old school friends and family..a place where I could freely express my unique self. You used to be able to post anything you wanted whether it was true or not, just because you felt like it and nobody really cared! Some things opened up great discussions! Now, everything you share or comment is scrutinized by behind-the-screen random, ghost people. These people have their own opinions and when you freely express yourself like before, your posts or comments will be taken down, blocked or hidden, and all of your audience will be notified that your opinion or posts just happens to be something they personally disagree with. I did a test and posted 2 polar opposite opinions on an issue just to see what they would do, both of them were false news. The fake news I posted about current and political events had 2 distinct viewpoints. The one the ghost person disagreed with, was covered up and labeled as false with a link to an article for my audience to click proving their viewpoint. The other one that was also fake news, fit their personal viewpoint and they never touched it. I personally disagreed with both things I posted but found out quickly what the viewpoint was of the ghost robots behind the screens reading everybody’s personal stuff. Facebook is NOT a good thing!!
JulesDaBoss - Fascistbook !
Most bias social network. They promote an atmosphere that allows bullying. They have community standards they hide behind while promoting an atmosphere that lets people harass you like sending video recordings or video calls and vulgar bully remarks via messenger. Dirty delete game is rampant with instigators on FB especially those with an agenda to push. It’s gotten really pathetic and many people are moving to Parler and mewe. FB on the other hand won’t allow links to either of those social media networks be put on messenger! They have algorithms kicking back messages with links per many people opening accounts with their competitors. It’s no longer a place to have your own opinions. Just had a suspension for telling off a wack job harassing me for no reason other than telling a poster to ignore her she’s probably a HS student. That resulted in this woman sending me recorded messages on messenger all screwed up high as a kite slurring making racial remarks and threatening me. She then tried to video call and when I took pic of the correspondence and posted it stating I wouldn’t tolerate it she then began posting remarks and sending more comments to my messenger. She dirty deleted when I wrote to her to go do her dope got suspension but this person I get rejected reports doesn’t go against standards?! I’m guessing my conservative cover photo was the cause of their decision making.
LadyA- - Gross people
Not only does the app crash consistently, removing posts and comments or simply failing to save a post or comment before a crash, they coddle to racists and internet trolls to an obscene degree. For example, a person can call you a discriminatory phrase based on your race, religion, gender, or sexual preference but if you report them after they’ve edited the post, FB will rule in their favor and threaten to freeze your account for making the complaint, as if the rest of the world can’t see what was said in the revision/edit history. More over, a college friend of mine passed years ago while we were in school during my undergrad degree. Her account was hacked by someone who changed the name on the account but posted raunchy pictures of another young woman, requesting money and gift cards in exchange for nudes. I tried reporting the account along with our former college advisor but no category fit. We each explained the situation in followup complaints and via email with zero replies to all. We received a generic response saying the content wasn’t a violation of fb rules, never addressing the fact that we were upset by the stealing of the account by a hacker making money from our dead loved one. We were warned not to submit any more complaints about that account as well by some generic response. Don’t expect them much from them.
EzRylder - Twitter here I Come
I hate Facebook. If I could give Zero stars I would. It’s like school popularity all over again for adults. Only reason I have to have it is cuz I sign into apps with it and I’m so far committed to these apps it would be a huge hassle to start a different account.
I’ve been cyber bullied/harassed/threatened countless times on here but as soon as I respond (fire with Fire), I’m always getting banned/restricted. It’s unreal. Like I seriously hate Facebook and everything it stands for at this point. I can’t wait until a different Social Media provider takes down Facebook. Instagram over Facebook all day any day. Bring back MySpace but FB can get bent for all I care.
Edit: it’s funny I see a lot of the same complaints. Something tells me FB won’t be around for 2030. Ding dong the witch is dead. Facebook doesn’t realize it yet, probably cuz they are full of themselves, but y’all on the downhill swing of things. Enjoy your last run. 1 star reviews are piling up and y’all don’t care. Bullies. But I think it’s time I finally take the plunge and create a Twitter as my primary and use that for my app accounts. Facebook, you had your chances and your nothing but a bully yourself that allows bullies to thrive while restricting the people who simply defend themselves from these bullies, hence, your ALSO A BULLY.
Diane Harris - Irritating App
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!
Rave Smoove - Fb Account “hacked” suspended
Facebook I’m reviewing your App Store, as a result, of 1-star rating because my account was wrongly accused of ” My Post goes against our Community Standards on nudity or sexual activity ” over a gift feed I shared to my feed of a couple just (kissing ) was a result of my account being ”temporarily” banned/kicks me out of my account without any warning from Facebook U.I settings itself telling me it goes against their actions. Which is completely ridiculous/B.S I'm not the only one who goes through this process more than thousands of users is getting this same effect trying to reach out to you from Twitter even your Headquarters calling ya did nothing about it. I even try using Facebook again on my safari showing me I have an option to remove this issue out of my Facebook feed which leads to another error it couldn't be discarded. Also, Your Previous updates have Facebook and Instagram connection into one not only I'm kicked out of FB so as my Instagram account Instagram replied ” Thanks For Providing Your Info” ” We” ll review your info and if we can confirm it, but you'll also be able to request a review in the Help Center within approximately (24 HOURS) I didn't receive anything Please fix your app.
Donnie Digital - Keyboard support, less hostile video playback
Hi there! So I’m addicted to the FaceFeed as anyone else, and I’ve a couple of suggestions for the iOS/iPadOS app. Currently using FaceBook in the Safari browser is better for me because of keyboard support. It seems crazy to me that there isn’t at least support for scrolling through the feed with arrow keys on Bluetooth or otherwise connected keyboards. Commands for search and home and refresh, etcetera, would be nice too- but man, the scrolling thing kills me. Also, I doubt I’ll see a change here as the way videos are currently presented seems designed to keep people watching them, but it feels awfully user-hostile to have to figure out different swipe patterns and do it quickly to dismiss a video before another one plays. Also, the relegating of Airplay options to that sub-menu alongside Chromecast options basically broke proper Airplay support. It never seems to want to stream to my AppleTV properly now, always have to give up and go with the less than ideal screen mirroring system-wide option. Cheers.
So Done! - Someone LIED to you
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.
Matti moo - If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it
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.
Sheryl1468 - No notifications about my posts!
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.
Amyncosolo - Shutting down
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!!!
Yup23765 - Why are you continually making it harder to sync my events to my iCalendar?!?!
Seriously!?!? I want my whole schedule in ONE place, home, work, fun, and that’s not going to be the Facebook events tab, so if you think I’m going to keep using that to setup, find or advocate for using events, you better go back to making it easier to sync with the iFamily of computing. It used to just automatically sync everything from FB to iCal, no problem. Then about 8-9 months ago, that stopped, and I had to either manually sync events one by one from my phone, or go to a web version of FB, find my calendar, and manually tell it to sync all. And even that doesn’t update any events, which is a pita. 😠 My main device is an iPad. Do you understand the PITA it is to convince safari to fun a web based version of a site?
Now you’ve gone and “improved” your surfing experience, AND I CAN NO LONGER FIND THE OPTION TO SYNC MY CALENDAR AT ALL. I have already started using other programs to schedule events for my activities that are more user friendly to all OS’s. And I will be recommending to others to do the same. You really need to not make people intertwining FB into their lives in ways they want it harder.
jeetaboo - They have taken the freedom away!
So much has changed about fb when I first downloaded the app I absolutely loved how you can stay connected with family and friends but somehow the very core of that has gone missing. Now you have to pay to be seen ! On both Instagram and fb !! I see the same 7 ppl on my timeline but some how I have 5000 active friends. I can post daily and won’t be seen how can a small business even be seen without the burden of coming out of pocket just to still not be seen unless you come out of pocket daily! As an African American I definitely feel RED LINE when using this app ! And I definitely don’t feel like it’s equal opportunity on all the major social media especially this one . When we try to “ pull ourselves up by the boot straps “ we are constantly systematically STOPPED speaking from my own experience! and I’m rarely one to speak on things like this but however it did prompt me to leave a review. Hopefully things can change for the better. To think an app that was supposed to connect us with family and friends are doing everything in their power to stop us from connecting
Jean in Tennesee - App won’t open on iPad Mini 2 running iOS 12
The Facebook app shows that it was updated today, and now it will not open on my iPad Mini 2, which cannot run iOS 13. It worked fine yesterday. Please remember many people are using older devices - which really aren’t that old; I’ve only had this iPad for 3 years - and make sure your app works with the previous version of iOS as well as the current one. UPDATE: After reading other reviews, the app evidently doesn’t work on the newest iOS 13, either. This app needs to be fixed ASAP! If you can’t fix the bug by tomorrow, please roll us back to the previous version! UPDATE 2: My phone has now installed the new version of the app and it still opens, so evidently only certain devices are affected. This is still a big problem and needs an emergency fix! UPDATE 3: I followed the advice of another reviewer and deleted the app and reinstalled it; that fixed the problem and it’s working again. Evidently the data was overloaded. Why does this app store so much data? There’s no need to accumulate data on my devices except to save the login cookies and maybe a few login cookies and form info for the built-in browser.
Jhnyyyysaaadh - Biased and doesn’t allow human Rights organizations to speak up
One star and I’m being generous !!!!!
Face book is an application that purposefully removes any press reports of news or of human rights organizations that speak on behalf oppressed Palestinians in the occupied Palestine by the illegal armed settlers of whom attack and threaten the safety of the indigenous Palestinians, stealing their homes and lands by putting hand on, terrorizing families to forcefully flea their lands and homes. The so called Israeli Army ( mob) demolishes people’s homes and destroys agricultural land to terrorize the Palestinians and place hardships on their survival.. people ( including children of age 5 years can be placed in prison without a fair trial and in many cases with no reason, to pressure families to give up their rights and ownership. Crimes of war take place in the occupied territories on daily basis, but still biased Face book shushes the voices of freedom to express their support and call for justice on its platform. Not only that, they suspend accounts if they express or even broadcast what’s happening behind doors.
I expect that from a plat form that’s owned by a guy that gave up his American nationality /citizenship to get away from paying American money taxes, for the millions of dollars he made!!!!
tutifruitti22 - It gets worse with each update!!!!
When I updated last time, the orders of how the comments or messages show up are all weird. It shows up as “most relevant” first and in no particular order. And even when I change to “newest first”, it still shows the “most relevant” first. I cannot rearrange the messages to show up in order of oldest to newest or vice versa. Please fix this!
I updated the app hoping this will help the problem above. But with this new update, not only the problem above persist, I now have a new problem. When uploading pictures, I can no longer have the option to look up my pictures in the albums/folders I created. I can only look through the camera rolls, where things are in no particular order. I belong to buy and sell groups and sell things on Facebook. So I created these albums/folders to increase efficiency when looking for items to post to save my sanity and not have to look through thousands of pictures in the camera rolls. Now there is no options to go to the albums/folders. Please fix this ASAP or your app will becomes useless soon. Please help us becomes more efficient, not less. So frustrated!!!
Kristycake - Enough with refreshing the newsfeed!
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”.
The lord is exceptional - Following the prompts doesn’t work at all
I have follow all the necessary prompts that i am suppose to take and every since i got my new phone but it won’t let me get back into the app at all when i have repeatedly taken four selfies on yesterday with me whole up different numbers and i have taken some other selfies with me whole up different other numbers today as well but by me repeatedly doing this i am putting myself at risk repeatedly doing the same thing over and over again and if you are a new user to Facebook don’t trust it if you get log out and can’t get back in because you switch mobile companies and you don’t have your old phone number or old mobile phone and if you more than Facebook post they won’t take that down neither once putting you at risk for hackers so if you are a new Facebook user don’t trust it if don’t be put at risk for haveing more than one Facebook page and post i will not give Facebook any type of ratings for haveing my identity expose in a manner in which i just stated in this paragraph it’s wrong and will be getting in touching with the Federal Trade commission center since i no way to deactivate all my pages and post.
Homanomana - Little details make a big difference
Here recently videos have started displaying this keep watching button right in the middle of the video. If I’m just scrolling through my newsfeed and want to watch a video in it’s entirety then I should be able to do that!! Not only that but then I also have to deal with the ads in the video too! It’s frustrating and makes the app not very enjoyable to use! Also, the back/forward arrows on a webpage need to be put back where they were at the bottom of the page. It’s too easy now to hit the X button to close a webpage when all I really wanted to do was go back a page. Very frustrating when you’ve been looking at something for a long time only for it to close and then the newsfeed refreshes and you’ve lost the link you were looking at originally. None of the other apps (Pinterest, Instagram) do this. Their back/forward buttons are at the bottom of the screen, away from the “X” button so you don’t risk closing your page. It’s little thing like this that make or break an app. And right now Facebook, you’re on the verge of falling apart.
Allymations15 - Seriously?
Okay so well I love the app. I get to talk to my family and join groups specifically the ones about animals and anime’s I like/have.
But there’s just one thing that makes me mad. You guys took away my market place, I’ve contacted help and support so many times about it. I’ve gone to that stupid webpage that tells you steps and none of that stuff is even on my page like to request a review.
I did nothing wrong. I sold antique dolls my mom got when she was younger, I sold a model helicopter and a skateboard. That’s it. That’s all I was selling. And I was completely transparent in telling people the damages they had and pricing them reasonably. So I know I didn’t break any of your rules. I saw that it could be cause I was inactive. Sense I have become a lot more active. I’m on everyday, I update my profile picture all the time, I joined groups and I’m always talking in those. I even like and comment of some of my friends and families post so I know that being inactive isn’t the problem anymore. I also know that marketplace is in fact active where I live cause I’m in Texas! ALSO the entire icon is gone and hasn’t returned.
TamaraMonkey - Unwanted sounds. Huge unusable app.
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.
skyfall randomness - This is more about a hacking group
I would really appreciate it if you could put hacking as one of the things your not allowed to do on Facebook because I reported these two groups who hack peoples groups and accounts for money and there was no hacking thing for me to report them for (it would be awesome if you could make it so we can give a personal report) so I reported them for doing sales that weren’t allowed and in the message back they just completely ignored the fact that the group was hacking, like what the heck?!?!? I mean no hate this is one of the best apps I own but those hacker groups might mess things up a bit one of the groups I’m in is doing some shutting down stuff as well as not letting new members join because of the hackers! It would be great if you could do something about it!! The group name is “black hat hackers” and actually when you look that up you find a few more hacking groups too please do something about it this really is not good thank you if you do!
Staciafriction - Latest update hurts my heart
In the latest update, the app no longer has the “share” button when you try to share a post to a group. You must individually look up and share each group, which is cumbersome and takes far more steps/time. My child is a brand Rep, and it used to be so convenient to make our promotion post and share in 5-10 groups with a few quick taps. Now, I have to individually share the post to each individual group. I understand it is probably some kind of safety feature to prevent hackers and bots and bugs, but it has really made it more difficult for us.
Also, the new layout on the computer (not the app, but the physical website) has me all sorts of lost and confused. I’m a pretty tech-y person, but when you move everything from its relative location, it makes it much more difficult of an interface to use.
Love the new avatars though!!! They are super fun and cute!!! Also, the new and updates privacy settings on groups are lovely!
changemessenger - Facebook Messenger
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.
Xavier Wolfen - Not worth it, borderline violates freedom of speech
They’re run almost completely by bots it seems and you can be banned from posting for the most ridiculous things. Wasn’t like this before, but either they’re under new management or their bots are now hypersensitive. I didn’t even get told what I did wrong, only that I posted something offensive in one of the many groups I’m in (I’m in a group for people to share offensive opinions, so yeah I’m going to post something there that may be construed that way because that is what that group is for!) and that I’m blocked from posting until April 1. April 1 came and I tested it out, still blocked until 8:22 the morning they said. It’s 8:58 now and I’m still blocked, but no explanation this time. I’ve had posts taken down before that don’t break any laws or advocate breaking any laws, but are simply funny memes that I share to specific groups so I don’t offend anyone who is outside of that group and not wanting to see it. Even been banned just for posting my opinions, no threats, no attacking people, just operating my right to freedom of speech! They shouldn’t call themselves a public platform if they can’t uphold the rights of the public.
cevans172 - Nothing loads anymore
I’ve been a faithful Facebook user for years. It is my go to social media platform and I love it. However for the last couple months I’ve noticed it won’t load random things. Images, comments, and video will stop loading if I’ve been scrolling for a minute or two. Sometimes I’ll be just hopping on and comments won’t load for something. It doesn’t matter if I’m on WiFi or data. I’ve even gone as far as to uninstall it and reinstall it twice this week, which worked for that night and stopped the next day. I never used to have this problem until after I got the iPhone X. My husband just switched phones to the iPhone X like me (got mine on Mother’s Day) and now he experiences it too, and we have friends who say they noticed it as well on this phone but when they switched phones, it was all good. Is there possibly a compatibility flaw between Facebook and the new iPhone? I hate not being able to use it like I used to. Hopefully this can be fixed so we can keep using it.
DuckieDeb - Learn How to "Keep it Sold"
Updated review Nov 2019. Stop messing up the app. Fix the bugs, but stop tweaking it. Once again, when I go to Groups, I know longer see the Groups I belong to. This feature has gone away before; I reported it and it was restored. Now, after the latest update it’s gone again.
A basic business adage is to "keep it sold" which means taking care of your current customers while you also develop new ones. You've already got millions of us sold on Facebook, so quit screwing around with the app and just give us a stable, reliable feed. Let the users decide what they see in their wall and in what order. I understand you make money from ads, so go ahead and put them out there, but let us manage our own content and interaction with our own friends, groups and pages. The more your developers keep tweaking with the app, the less appealing it becomes and the more unstable. Now it keeps freezing and quitting, making it difficult to post. Do you even ask your users what kind of changes they want before messing with the app & your stupid algorithms?
Pokey+ - I really hate Facebook right now
I can’t remember when I liked Facebook in a LONG TIME! When they decided to to play Judge and jury over what games we were playing ( which included many many Facebook people who wanted to take over Facebook with selfish selfies and Hey Look at me so called bible authorities which included nothing nothing I ever read in the Bible??? Why? Bc it was new age Christian or whatever that wiped all their sins away and still let them let them cast stone’s at others with sin to people who they didn’t like anymore! Hypocrite Bible studies and Fake selfies pushed all of the fun and and entertaining that people used to enjoy! Plus I cannot see all of my friends that I follow or all of my favorite entertainment that I like and follow! I get 2 or 3 friends that I follow and 1 entertainment ( Steve Harvey) to be exact that I follow! I can’t even share my children’s pictures bc they say it’s in my settings! I follow Facebook instructions and it NEVER works! Nothing in my Facebook settings ever works and I do have the Facebook app also ! I recently just stopped using Facebook at all bc of all of the troubles I have had and now I can rest more easily! Thanks Fakebook !
KatieMa3113 - Facebook is horrific
So CBSnews posted an article how ICE was still detaining immigrants and immigrants were getting Covid. I said how that’s horrific, some white dude replies to my comment and I was the one who got reported for saying we all come from immigrants unless you’re Native American. My comment was reported and now it’s going to active on my page for a year. That’s incredibly messed up, where was the due process there? And now I can’t reach anyone about my issue. I would just delete it but unfortunately i try to check up on how friends are during this pandemic so that’s my only reservation and that the big bad wolf of Facebook might win. Oh wait, my account might be locked for criticizing Facebook, even though Trump can post hate speech. I guess if you’re making deals with President than you don’t get a metaphorical leash around your neck. Shame on you Facebook, you clearly support anti-immigrants because I was sticking up for them and you didn’t bother to read that or let me have a rebuttal. But got it, I’ll implore your methods. I will no longer comment on awful things, just report the awful things to you. Since you’re the dictator apparently
Tazzie637 - Um, what?!
I have an idea!! Instead of pretending your app is perfect, how about make a place where people can actually report issues with the programming?? Like false information!! If I put someone on ignore and have their messages go into the spam folder, why can they still call me thru messenger?? Why am I getting the notification that they are calling when it clearly states they will NOT be able to call?? Fix that.. Also, I loathe that when I pause a video and put my phone down, the video starts playing again.. That makes absolutely no sense at all.. Why have a pause button?? It seems like the “updates” that happen every two weeks are just adding more minor inconveniences and prohibiting more and more options, like changing your name.. Also, why are people I have on my blocked list placed on the list of people to share posts with?? I went to share a post on a specific persons page and two people I have on my blocked list were on that list of people to share with.. WHAT?! Makes so sense!! Please fix the real issues and stop adding garbage to the app.. Sound good?? You have the resources, your facility is huge enough..
Keetgi - Updating the App into Uselessness
I am a member of a lot of groups and rely on my email notifications to decide which posts to actually read and which to ignore. Unfortunately, FB made that impossible several months ago when, during an update, my email notifications suddenly became two lines instead of the full post. I’m assuming that was to force me to visit FB more often. What’s worse, is that in a recent update, when I click on the “view on Facebook” button in the email notification, instead of taking me directly to the post I want to read, FB now takes me to a random video in the FB watch tab. Presumably to get me to watch more videos. But all it’s doing is frustrating me to no end. Now, the latest, is when I manually try to find the post I want to read by looking at my notifications tab, the post doesn’t show up until I refresh the group page, which never used to be the case. It is all a downward spiral that makes me wish I could just stop using FB and try something else. Stop updating the app to make it less convenient for users!
LemonElephant04 - Decent social media but website is TERRIBLE
When it works, it’s really noce to be able to connect with people and see and share posts:) bit very disappointing when it doesn’t let you use it ever again and locks you out forever.:( Ok so I made an account on here and followed all and only the directions they gave me to set it up. When I finished, a random thing popped up and said that it saw “suspicious activity” from my account and made me send in a picture of myself to verify that it was really me. Then it said that my account would be disabled until they reviewed my submission. A month and a half later, it still says the same thing, so I tried making a new account. At first all was fine, but it did the same thing only five minutes after I completed the setup! I have no idea why it’s doing this. I did absolutely nothing wrong and the only reason I was making an account was so I could use Facebook marketplace. If anyone has any tips on how to fix this, please let me know!
asmileforjenna - Nothing loads anymore...
When I open the app I can only see a handful of posts from days ago. When I scroll to the bottom, the app doesn’t load any more posts. Refreshing does nothing. I don’t get any error messages. On the posts that do show up: 1. comments don’t load at all 2. videos freeze after max 10-15 seconds 3. when I react to or comment on something it never actually posts it; next time I load the app and see the post I commented on, my both my comment & reaction don’t show up.
Today it got to the point that when I opened the app, it just says “network error, tap to retry” and of course tapping “retry” does nothing.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app multiple times. The first time seemed to fix it but the next day it was acting up again. The second time it started acting up within a few hours. This time it went from “tap to retry” to just acting buggy. The app keeps degrading to the point where I literally cannot use it on my phone which is my main source of using Facebook; I rarely if ever go on Facebook on the computer. This needs to be fixed so I can actually use your product.
Dylan Hamill - ZERO SUPPORT
Used Facebook for my business never posted anything bad hardly ever used it until I launched my business and page. Shortly after doing so my account ya been locked starting on June 9th. Every time I log in I’m told to finish securing my account with only the option to send a picture of my ID which I did on the 9th and here it is the 29th I’ve sent in way to many pictures of my ID. I am allowed to change my password but still unable to log in I get updates via email all the time about how my page is doing. I can’t respond to new customers my business has been at a halt literally a day after launch. If someone would actually open my account or take the time to respond I would gladly rate higher. But for a Major app to have no phone support and no email support or a live chat is sad. They don’t care enough to help or respond in any way. Just want back into my account. Never had this much of an issue with any app ever. What makes it worst is I use Instagram but can’t even market and promote on there as I need to be connected to a Facebook. I would be amazed if I actually got a response. Poor poor service.
yainara - Worst App ever
I am literally hating facebook so much! Every update to “make facebook better” is a scam! Everything gets changed every 2 week and that’s not to mention such a trashy algorithm. For starters I am being charged $25 on my new page for ads when I have never run an add on this page. However it still telling me my card is not going trough and I’m just soo confused as to why am I being charged, thankfully I have never put down my card information. Tried contact them and see why it’s saying I owe $25 dollar but no response... customer service is just trash and non existent. Every time I upload a video or a prerecorded storie it takes several hours and sometimes days to actually upload ... that’s ridiculous!!
My all time favorite was instagram but now facebook owns instagram too and little by little instagram is becoming trash too. To upload a video is taking longer than ever.. and now the inbox messages are blue? Eww
Honestly so over this 2 app I honestly wish someone else comes up with a better social media app and I promise id be deleting these 2 soo fast. Everything they do they just make everything worse
Tootsdm - Most frustrating app ever
I have been a holdout since Facebook started. I finally gave in so I could see what was going on with family. This has been the most stressful annoying experience ever. No tech support while developer Mark is a billionaire. I also several times a week only have about 6 items and the feed ends. Log out and back in. Did setting for a couple people to be on the top of my feed. Never are. My daughter is trying to Like things and gets a ‘this action is blocked ‘ reply and tells it 20 times that it’s a mistake and then it happens again. Then it locked her account. Then you have to identify 5 people who are friends to convince FB that you are still really you. Then she had to change password two different times in two days and she’s an expert at this app. Ruining my vacation trying to post our things and encounter glitch after glitch. Oh log out AGAIN!!!! Try AGAIN!! By the volume of all these crappy reviews I would think the boss would want to fix these bugs and actually be an above standard app. Guess you don’t care anymore once you get really rich. Hate this app.
Raerae8513 - So many issues with the app
7/3/18 new review: I can’t go 5 seconds without this app kicking me out of it. Also, what happened to the feature where when you went to post a pic, if you tapped and held the pic you could edit it before posting? Seriously over this app. I’m about to delete it and just use safari, because it’s got so many issues and just not worth it anymore. I now have the 8 plus and have had nothing but issues since I updated the other day.
Old review: So my FB app was working fine until I updated it. I have an iPhone 6 Plus and I use the app to upload photos of my daughter. Well after I updated it I went to upload photos and the app closed out on me, it freezes when I try to go back on it, it won't let me upload more that 40 photos/videos at a time, it's sluggish when it will let me on, and no matter how many times I turned my phone off or uninstalled the app and reinstalled it it's still doing the same thing. I'm over it. When the app is running better and won't kick me off of it while trying to upload photos let me know, but until then I'm deleting it and using safari.
Rob124103 - Censors information based on political & social bias
Facebook has an algorithm that will try to bury any person that has a differing opinion on certain public issues or global emergencies/pandemics. Facebook has been doing this for the past few years and their censorship has only gotten worse over time.
I used to love using Facebook to communicate with friends and family, and share info/memes/videos and other content respectively and responsibly,But now if I share any informative articles or info that is different from what is going viral, my posts get buried and sources that I was formally subscribed to get buried due to facebook’s algorithm to push a specific issue or agenda.
As vague as this all sounds, to put it simply anything that opposes or is used to address certain issues that are going viral get buried and result in facebook even suspending accounts for posting factual information they don’t agree with.
This platform isn’t what it used to be and I am highly disappointed in the people that are running this platform because they are suppressing information they don’t agree with and that will be this platform’s downfall.
Put it back!:( - Facebook please listen
Facebook would be 100% more comfortable in my opinion if the messaging system was in the ACTUAL Facebook app. I mean come one think of storage??? Also it’s just annoying every time it takes me to the other app. It’s just as acting like Snapchat and it doesn’t do the best job. I would also recommend having the settings be a little more comfortable and less confusing for everyone thank you. I would also recommend NOT having soooo many “suggestions” it’s so annoying and it’s so crowded. I would also like my feed to NOT RESET every time. it is VERY difficult to find a post when almost nothing is in order and TOO MANY suggested posts appear!! I would also like an option to be able to delete EVERY SINGLE post. It would also be MORE comfortable(in my opinion)to have the RESHARED POSTS be on a different category to posts I ACTUALLY made. Because seriously it doesn’t make sense!!! My feed is a mess and honestly idk if it’s because I haven’t been on the app much but please being on the app is sometimes is irritating. Thank you have a great day.
Craigbiz - Privacy Wanted
I am a very private individual. I keep my friends list very limited to under 20 people tops (mostly family and not even friends & co-workers) so that I can share video and photos with them about life events. I also post news commentary. I know about the NSA thing with Snowden. This is not what has upset me. Now, Facebook is publicly threatening that instead of just the algorithm and a relatively small team of content curators based out of Facebook's HQ, they are planning to hire an army of up to 20,000 human content police! I have real fears that one of these 20,000 strong may end up being a nosy neighbor down the street. I don't like the idea of having 20,000 people capable of seeing my posts that I don't even know who they are. The NSA is in Maryland, Facebook is in California. I was not worried about people from either of those groups being a neighbor living next door to me that I do not want to have access to my information! I am very weird in what I post (ufo stuff). Im sick of having to worry if my neighbor might happen to be a Facebook mod, like those in the website Nextdoor in which I am constantly tearing up snail mail invites for.
dont have to put one - New on Facebook
I haven’t been able to see anything about my account other than Facebook fake pages put on by hackers! Asking for me to open my account for me to sign in with email address password over and over. I don’t believe that it’s real please take them down. I’ve put my email and personal password for the? Whoever said that is what fb has you do?? I have had my identity stolen from someone I have turned in a lot of times has used it to get in my account! I sure I did things when I got back on Facebook my mistake please text me on what to do! My husband is going to ask me to close my account and I really enjoy see old friends have pictures I want but not all the trouble I keep getting. So Dear Facebook let me know if you have an answer for me to keep my account or close now it keeps asking me for a nickname I don’t have one so I’m sure you will never get this send
kala kar - What happened???
Something must have been updated or changed because the app on my iPhone is completely useless now. Cant even have a conversation with someone in a larger setting because comments don’t show up in order. Switching to a different order only makes it worse. “Top comments” get sorted in the most inefficient way and your option to change that are two other useless options. Notifications have been broken for over a month. Good luck trying to turn on notifications on a certain post, it literally does nothing. Doesn’t tell you if someone replied or tagged you. Not to mention everything on my main news feed is from 2-3 days ago!! News, family posts, videos...everything. The point of using this app daily is to keep up with current events. Not things that happened last week. I shouldn’t have to sort and rearrange the set up every single time I go on just to see new posts. For a company that makes billions, you’d think you be able to run an efficient app...or at least fix problems as the happen.
Desiwhit - My account is hacked, FB will not help
I have now lost all my FB access as I can not be recognized by email or searching to find my account by name- I have circled for two days the HELP CENTER they tell you is the ONLY MEANS OF SUPPORT as they do not offer ANY SUPPORT whatsoever for this app. I tried notifying them in the beginning my account was being messed with as I had messages being posted through messenger Sending out porn spam to my friends, and then the next morning after hours of trying to loop the useless help info which all circles to the same pages of information that DOES NOT HELP if you have NO access!!!!!!! My account is now inaccessible to me. I HAVE TWOOOOOOOO BUSINESS PAGES linked to this profile which I have NO ACCESS TO anymore and NO HELP! How can FB be a multi billion dollar company and have “the best hackers and technical security” and yet HAVE NOOOOO AND I MEAN ABSOLUTELY NOOOOOOOOOOOO HELP to recover a hacked account. Now my businesses suffer as well as all of my pictures and personal info GONE!
Out of reach! Online there are thousands of complaints of the same thing I’m stating now! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH FB! This is TERRIBLE AND I CANT BELEIVE I SPENT MONEY WITH YOU FOR MY BUSINESS!
Nivescici - What the heck
So today Facebook decided it would block me from blocking ads. I don’t want to see your ads, so I block them. Then I get a message that says, “It looks like you were misusing this feature by going too fast. You’ve been blocked from using it.” I am not misusing anything. I’m blocking the ridiculous amount of ads you suddenly put on my feed. How dare you force advertisements upon me by not letting me block them. That is absolutely ridiculous. Every third post there’s an ad. I don’t care about the trash you’re trying to force me to buy. I don’t want to see it. I didn’t have a problem before today. I only ever saw my friend’s posts. I have 2,700 pages blocked because I don’t want to see ads. I use your service to connect with friends. I am so disgusted by this. What point is there in blocking me from hiding ads?
Another problem I have is that the, “Most Recent” button is completely broken. Every single post on the most recent feed is in exactly the same order as the regular feed. That is not the most recent stuff. I’m deleting this app. I can’t even understand the foolery.
kayknit2 - Blacking out of Facebook while trying to access since iOS 11.4 update
I’m reposting as this blacking out of Facebook and/or not being able to get feeds is just maddening, to say the least. Even after system rebooting and deleting Facebook and reinstalling and working w/Apple this problem continues, as a matter of fact this post has taken me 3 times in order to complete my typing - please advise! I’ve even written Facebook but have not gotten a response. 😡 Oh and yes it happens on my iPad Pro, so it has to be Facebook after the new iOS update to 11.4.
This was my first post - I also sent a note to Facebook around June 22, no response—
Since updating to iOS 11.4, whenever I’m on Facebook with my iPhone8+ (well most the time), when commenting, reading or watching videos, it automatically goes back to Homepage — I lose comment, have to retype, and, of course, lose place in the article I’m reading or video I’m watching!! I’ve called Apple and they couldn’t help but said to delete fb app and reinstall; I did but still have the problem — Anyone else?? Please let me know and what you did to solve the problem, thanks
Rk1990312 - Duplicate names and fake accounts
First of all this app is good.. but i dont know why i think that i still miss most of my friend’s post. And about duplicate fake accounts. I think Facebook needs to implement a system that avoids the use of Same names . Because personally i even found one of my photos being uploaded to someone’s timeline.. Even though that didn’t annoyed me.. But facebook should provide strong control over the user’s photo.. so that i wont be downloaded in other devices. Even though some of pic may be screenshot. Facebook should also implement a system like face identifying AI to identify the use of multiple photos of same user over different account. I mean to say to have new kinds of notification and alerts if some . Even if some people decide to make backup account their previously used mobile number to verify, the creation of account of same user allowing to upload the photo signifying its really the same guy...
Spotteddog367sweet - Facebook sometimes listens to my cell phone calls
A few times I have been talking to friends on my cell phone about a product a friend likes or I like. Minutes later I see ads for the same product. One time a friend said she would like one of those walk in bath tubs because she was afraid of falling. I hung up the phone and checked my Facebook wall only to find an ad for the walk in tubs AND for one of those "I've fallen and I can't get up" services. Facebook searches through my private address book and suggests that I might want to "friend" people they find. There is so much fake news that shows up on my wall. Some of the ads are so obviously fake and they show up everywhere on FB. Ones about alive celebrities where the ad says so and so died and no one knew she died. Others that say things like Joy Behr is quitting the View because she uses a certain face cream. Our president spends all his waking hours lying to the American public. I don't want to be bombarded with more lies. I wish I could trust Facebook. I like being in touch with friends of my choosing. I don't like being manipulated by Facebook. They are very invasive.

Hope you get it fixed - Probably the most unstable update yet!!!
Since the last update which was days ago, whenever I’m looking through my newsfeed, I can see a glimmer of the photo feed on the left hand side of the screen. Also, when looking at pics, you have to open them individually. So if someone has posted 6 pics, you can only see the 3 but nothing beyond the + sign.
I’m also a moderator in a group of over 375k people. Most of which want to post pics to the group and as they have to be filtered, it takes so much longer when the pics you have either approved or declined come back up about a minute later. Making the whole process painful and exhausting. If someone could fix these things, that would be fantastic. Thank you 🙏🏼
WhyDoMeLikeThat:( - Unexpected Error
Before today I would have given 5 stars BUT-
Every time I try logging in on the Facebook app on my phone it comes up with “An unexpected error occurred. Please try logging in again”. I tried deleting and re-downloading the app, turned my phone off and on and it’s still coming up with the unexpected error message. I can only log in on the Facebook website on the internet but then when I try use messenger I get the exact same message “An unexpected error occurred. Please try logging in again”.
Also when I woke up this morning, my account had been disabled and nothing will tell me what for, or for how long. When I search my name on my sisters account, I cannot find it. So it’s not just disabled but it’s deleted? I’ve been disabled before and this has never happened. I’ve had people asking me why I’ve deleted Facebook when I haven’t, so I’ve had to make a new one. And also my Instagram account that was connected to my Facebook that got disabled, had 300+ photos of my babies that are now gone. I don’t know what’s going on but over the 9 years I’ve had Facebook this has never happened to me. If someone can try retrieve my account back I would really appreciate that...
sillemc - Facefail
Like a lot of other users my Facebook no matter what I have tried will not group my feed in chronological order.
I have re-installed the app, logged out, reset my phone, updated the app etc etc but seems to be a larger issue (it also happens on my laptop)
It seems like this only happens to certain people. My partner can select “Most recent” and it will group all posts as you would expect but alas not for me.
I’m sure Facebook would be aware of this issue but nothing has changed in months, my feed just randomly decided to not group in chronological order over 2 months ago.
It just jumps around all over the place, 6 hours ago, 10 minutes ago, yesterday at 10pm... what the hell?!
I also have another problem where if I am scrolling my feed on my iPhone and accidentally swipe right a series of menus opens and then I cannot scroll back left to get rid of the menu instead I have to select “Most recent” again and it brings me right back to the start of my feed! Super frustrating if I am trying to check a few hours of posts.
Now I’ve tried fixing this issue also with no success. I have enabled and disabled certain “camera” settings still no go. I have upgraded my phone and am sure all my issues are software related as once again myself and my partner have the exact same phone but I seem to be the only one suffering with these issues.
Now I am not usually the person to write reviews or rant but maybe it’s time we all go back to MySpace.
susanhawkins - I can’t seem to be logging in from my phone ?
After I deactivated, I wanted to log back in from my phone but it showed. “ Log in error. An unexpected error occurred. Please try logging in again.”
So I tried from another phone’s app and it worked and I tried logging in from the web of my phone , that too worked but my phone’s app. I thought it was my phone’s problem or the app’s problem given it’s only happening here. I tried deleting the app, restarting my phone, deactivated my account and then tried reactivating again and I even reset my phone for that. Then I started thinking if it’s just my account but it’s not , it showed the same for the other accounts as well. So since it didn’t work after reset or network reset either, I’m thinking if it’s the app’s problem here. Can someone help me with it ? I searched the internet and Facebook help center but in vain. I’d really appreciate a way out from this problem as I’ve been stuck out for a month now.
Tinkerbell's BIGGEST fan! - Thank you!
I just wanted to say thank you very much for creating FaceBook and bringing everyone closer together and basically everyone in the world uses this app, it’s the best. Not just contact aswell but to find out what goes on in the world and warning us about important events, the marketplace etc is all very important and handy! Some people spend too long on this app (I’m not that person) and should value the greatest things in life like spending time with family and friends is by far more important than FaceBook, so maybe if FaceBook was open for some parts of the day or if people generally stopped using it so often, they might open their eyes and realise they have a life. But other than that, amazing app to keep in contact with everyone and find out what everyone is up to! 😃💖 xoxo - Molly.
khyle atkinson - Ads, Ads and more Ads
This social media platform has become hands down the most annoying and advertisement loaded platform in recent times. All I want to do is have a scroll though my posts and see what my friend and family are up to but no. Almost every fourth Post is now an Ad and it is really annoying and not called for. Myself and a lot of other users to not want to be bombarded with 500 force feed ads a day. Don’t get the me started on the video content. Can’t even enjoy a whole video with out some ad that shows 5 seconds into the video that then shows more time on screen than the video it’s self. Also I am sick of seeing stuff that myself and my friends talk about then just “randomly appearing on my posts. We don’t mind some ads but please cut then back to being static and non invasive ones that allow us to enjoy a video or 2 before you show a quick 5 second ad instead of a 35second that cannot be skipped. That just shows fast food that I couldn’t care for.
Sabaphoenix - Constant Updates More Issues!
It would be great if Facebook actually made an update that would improve the functionality of the app!
It’s nice to have this social media platform that allows us to interact, but the most recent update is annoying that doeesn’t allow me or others to do it with ease.
Now that they have added an up and down vote option on Pages. You can’t like a comment anymore, instead there is the “upvote” option and the person whose comment your liking won’t know it’s you because its anonymous. Sorry, this is ridiculous!
However, in Facebook groups, people can like others comments which is good. Please bring back the old way of liking comments across Facebook and and a dislike link as an option to “dislike” someone’s comment.
On Pages, it would nice to be able to switch between the admin profile and my personal profile when liking posts. This continues to frustrate me!
Please bring back the method of being able to jump to different years of your timeline with ease. If I want to look up posts, for example 10 years ago, I shoud be able to find on a side bar a way to do that & be able to navigate across different years easily. It is a TIMELINE afterall!
I could rant on forever about the bugs and annoying issues...! Please make an update that makes sense and doesn’t complicate things further.
Bryce Bell - New updates
The latest updates for Facebook have completely ruined it. For some reason Facebook takes more time than it ever did to load a video, whereas Instagram loads videos instantly, even when I’m using the same network. It’s not only the loading time but also the ads within the actual video that suddenly come up, and force you to watch the advertisement. This new advertisement feature is probably the worst way to advertise within a social media platform, you might want to take a few notes from Instagram, for example, they have advertisements that rarely show up in your time line that are easy to skip. Unlike the advertising structure in Facebook where you have to watch the whole ad that interrupted your video. It would be tolerable if you changed the video adverts to individual posts that you can swipe past, however you haven’t integrated this style within the Facebook app making it an annoying and unfriendly user experience.
Marijke Groothuis - Removal of # of Likes is ill-conceived!!!
Latest update has added more disfunction to an already disfunctional app for iPad's. If you keep going like this it will be very easy to just cut the umbilical cord in the end, because there will be nothing worthwhile left.
Your change to how Likes etc are displayed has taken a feature away from Groups who use it precisely for the reason you state for the change, name "popularity". The popularity of pieces of art work to be precise. By all means, make it an option to have it or not, but don't FORCE this change in people. What your intentions are when you created the feature, was taken out of your hands the moment you made it public, and to now try and control it for the reasons you started is pure arrogance. Unfortunately I am in Australia where we are having to deal with your ill-conceived because we were "chosen" as a testing ground. Why not think things through instead of foisting it on us?!
SailorMerp - Listen to the people
☠️Firstly I’ll start by saying the lack of ability to have newsfeed set out in chronological order irks me. I am missing the important things in my friends lives and the businesses around me. Incase it’s not obvious, these are the things I have Facebook for.
☠️Facebook watch has suddenly vanished and I can’t find it in my shortcuts selection settings, no one else has the issue and google seems to think it’s still available?
☠️Market Place radius zone shows me things in a different city before it shows me everything matching in my town, kinda defeats the purpose!
☠️Ads every 4th post is excessive and I stopped buying anything from Facebook since they became so frequent!
☠️Reporting videos always yields a “does not breach fb community standards and won’t be deleted” result but I certainly don’t go on Facebook to see a dog get skinned or person killed... is this ok? While girls nipples get blocked and accounts deleted the platform still allows brutality and cruelty? I’m about done.☠️☠️☠️
Fyffhtdxghvxdgcxgc - Ordering Posts!!!
Bring back chronological order!! Why the heckinbob would you choose to have posts randomly displayed in news feed?! Why even call it a newsfeed? It’s old news. Whoever decided to do this is an idiot. If there’s a sale on, I might as well miss out because “today’s specials” show up on my newsfeed 3 days later. businesses who want to use Facebook to market their products would be stupid to do so. Need a weather update or emergency warning? Better not rely on Facebook to get your message out there because people aren’t gonna see it until days later. I honestly spend a very little amount of time on Facebook these days because there’s no point going there if I get posts shown days after they’re posted. It’s old news to me. Is Facebook trying to dig itself a hole and turn people away? Certainly seems like it. If I need to contact people via Facebook, I just use messenger. What’s the point of even having the Facebook app anymore? It’s become irrelevant
Qquppw - What???
I’m writing this on behalf of my mother. The most recent update for Facebook has made everything smaller on her iPad screen. She is legally blind with the ability to see somethings as long as they are big enough for her too see.
With the update making everything smaller, she is extremely frustrated so I would like to request a ‘viewer settings’ tab where you can personalise how an individual wishes to view the app. If someone wants to enable a feature where they can zoom in on any given area of the page they’re viewing, that they can. Or being able to adjust the setting to view in a night or day mode (night being where the background is dark while the writing is white and the day mode being the current version).
I feel like this may make it easier for people with lesser eyesight like my mother and it would also be easier to adjust to the brightness of a persons Facebook app if they were to open Facebook at night.
Mattoz20 - Worthless
Facebook has gone down the drain alongside its reputation to be a formidable company. Not only do the updates impede the efficiency of the app but the marketplace option has more flaws than a dog has fleas. Why bother setting a radius of 20km from your location when it’s still going show you items that are 180km away!?! Why bother listing anything when Facebook won’t even show it publicly?! Don’t worry about typing in your location, if you can write more than 4 letters without Facebook completely wiping your text, good on you!! But last but not least, I’ve written to facebook about 12 times and the only reply I’ve gotten was some generic jargon of thank you for your response, we'll take it into consideration. FACEBOOK DOES NOT KNOW CUSTOMER SERVICE! All they value is ads that pay for the upkeep, MONEY MONEY MONEY that’s all they care about. That’s how Facebook originated anyway, because someone stole someone’s idea because of greed!!! Very unhappy, would not recommend!
Miiikaykay3 - Photo Albums
I’m not a big Facebook user, mostly I use my account to upload photos and to keep in touch, via messenger, with friends overseas.
I have just been overseas myself and have uploaded lots of photos to an album specifically for the holiday. I see that there is a button so that selected people can also upload photos to that album, but I believe it could be even better! The idea I had is having the album also show up on the selected persons profile as well as your own; kind of like Facebook events how you can choose a co-host but still be the host yourself so you’re able to delete anything you do not wish to have in that album. I believe this could be a great improvement, and would be very beneficial so we don’t all have to upload the same photos!
bl33dingh3art - Inaccessible & flawed
While the main, longstanding systems work there are major problems still present.
The reporting system doesn’t function as it should. I’ve seen plenty of instances where myself or others have reported things that break community standards (hate speech, violence, etc) and yet those posts/pages are allowed to remain up, while at the same time harmless content within community standards gets removed.
There is no functionality for adding image description for people who use screen readers. I want to be able to describe what is in an image without putting it in the main text of my post. While doing it this way still allows content I post to be accessible to people who use screen readers, it isn’t the optimal format for screen reading. On top of this, when there’s no in-built system to add image description it’s easy to forget which means people are going to miss out. Take a page from what Twitter does.
~Ashman83~ - Attn: Noticed a bug in the app
Hello Mark & Facebook team, Ive noticed a problem with the Facebook app since either the last update or since the most recent iOS update where you select the app it loads to a black screen for a split second then goes back to the home screen of the iPad where as on my iPhone the app works just fine so it’s clearly either the app needs an update to make it function with the most current iOS.
Please also look into on a side note could you make a way where it’s faster to get to the “most recent” news tab as it’s kinda irritating to have to go down to more then in that listing then choose “most recent” just so I can see my posts in actual correct order of timeline.
Thank you for your time!! :)
the-trash-chronicles - In-App Notification Glitch
I’ve always had a lot of issues with the Facebook app but the bug to do with in-app group notifications specifically had been annoying me to no end. Despite having the latest iPhone and always updating my app, any time the Facebook app tells me that there’s been a new post made in a group page and I tap it it will show me a post from several days ago, often refusing to show me the new post even when I refresh the page several times. In the reverse of this, sometimes the app will tell me that there’s been a new post however when I tap it I discover that it was actually made over a month ago and I missed it when it was still relevant. I’ve been waiting patiently for this in-app notification bug to be resolved however after several months nothing has been done. I have discussed this with other iPhone users and all experience the same bug
kvrsq1 - Keeping international family connections
Facebook is brilliant! I also use many other apps but Facebook suits our family, relatives and friends. I started a closed home page and invited all my relatives and close friends from around the world to join. We now have over 200 relatives in several countries as members. The younger generation show the older generation what we are all doing. This also allows us to update our family tree which is growing every day with some incredible information. Facebook has allowed us to connect showing everyone what we do and how we live on a daily basis with interesting stories from the past and today. Thank you Facebook
Misskritt - Change the algorithm
I wanna see my newsfeed as it happens. Change the algorithm so I can view my newsfeed in chronological order!! I’m so sick of seeing posts from 2,3,4 days ago for the first time, today!!
What you think is important to me isn’t at all!! Just put it back to chronological order and I can guarantee you’ll get the hint of what’s important to me then, as I’ll be able to see the posts as they’re posted and respond in real time.. not 3 days later!!
Additionally.. I’m also seeing the same old post over and over again too, but missing out on something that, after newsfeed refreshes is gone and never to be seen again, unless I happened to catch who posted it so I can go and search it manually! For example, lost n found animals, emergency posts, just to name a couple.
Just put it back to how it used to be in the good old days.. and stop trying to guess what I wanna see!!
是枪林弹雨 - Not happy with the Facebook app not a good customer service
Why is Facebook not replying back on the report a problem this system like reporting a problem it’s a rob system which does not send straight to the IT personal to update the app or email the customer back this service is already in a bad position where Facebook company is not responding back to other customer support service center this not good enough at all I have already made a second complete to Facebook an they never even like to email me back which I’m really going to take legal action on Facebook which it will happen soon an this is like a bad app not a happy customer it’s a 0 out of 0 bad customer support the staff at face have not ever help me out at all so if you wanna to get a good rating have a good system in place an a contact number which we can call for apps an other things IM NOT HAPPY WITH THE APP AT ALL BOTH FOR FACEBOOK APP AN MESSENGER APP TO
facebook can suck - Idiots!!!
Facebook can be very frustrating especially when trying to access an old account, I have contacted the people working at Facebook so many times trying to tell them that I have old accounts and they need to be closedown...But they just sit there 🤷♂️
I’m sure many other people have the same problem...
Also I have created a new account, and tried to add the same phone number as my old account however I can’t add my phone number because it’s saying that I have used it on another account???
So what am I supposed to do... Do you think people can go around changing their phone numbers all the time just to please Facebook???
And another thing, you can’t even access the market place straight away when you create a new account, you have to wait for up to 4 months before you can even start selling things, because Facebook is so worried about people selling stolen goods...But what about the people that are not selling stolen goods and need to start selling straightaway???
I have decided to start selling things on Ebay at least I can start selling straightaway. And they are a far better market place. 🤷♂️
Oh that reminds me, why am I able to sell things on gumtree and Craigs list straightaway but on Facebook I’m not...It doesn’t even make sense...Idiots!
CindyBuk - App Vs Web
I very rarely use FaceBook via the web, I have my mobile device and access/use FB via these mobile devices 99% of the time. The ONLY reason I use the web version is because the App doesn’t have the same features! In the web I can view the videos for groups that I’m in easily - in the app I’ve got to hunting for them; I can create collections of my saved content in the web - this doesn’t even appear in the App!! Please align the two a bit more - it is frustrating to have to use two different options to access content!! Now there is a Units feature in my Facebook phone app - nothing in for my iPad. I’m doing a training program via Facebook and this is making life so incredibly difficult!
qbationn - Very very mad and disappointed!
Okay I have problems: I download this app and I try to log in my old Facebook acc but my email does not match on Facebook so I decided to make new one because I’m very very sad I lost all my friends and family also I want to create my own page on Facebook I have to follow what I have to do then I take pic myself because it say Please take pic yourself so that we know it is your Facebook and I did. After that I can’t log in my Facebook!!! 😡 again!! And my messenger ahhhh!! PLEASE PLEASE IM SO TIRED TO MAKE ANOTHER FACEBOOK ACC AGAIN WOULD YOU PLEASE FIX THIS APP OR FACEBOOK BUSINESS!!!
1 things can u please bring old Facebook acc back ? NOOO it is allllll GONE !! My art pages, friends, family, pictures and everything’s I didn’t save on my laptop that why I’m very MAD I lost everything’s !! I cried every night because I lost friends name or family’s name or Pictures or art pages 😞😞😭
King brewww - Broken now with the update
I have an iPad Pro. A update or two ago when I click on a notification for a photo I’ve posted to a group that someone else has now commented on on or a photo someone else has posted in a group that I commented on and now someone else has commented, when I click on the notification for either it doesn’t take me to the comments on the photo. It instead takes me to the wall of the page the photo is on. Yes the photo is still there because I have to manually go they their posts and find the photo which is there and so is the new comments I got the notification for. If someone likes the photo I posted that notification leads me to the photo properly still by the way. Only with likes tho. The rest is broken. Please fix it’s VERY annoying
SpaceGhost16 - Buggy and in need of an update
It’s fine for lightweight users but if you are a page admin vs a normal user and use Facebook across devices you quickly see the inconsistencies, features on some platforms missing from others, basic features not available at all (eg. reorder albums, group select of photos, etc), other features randomly change or removed without acknowledgement (eg. View As selected user, exclude group in permissions, etc). It becomes frustrating as hell but sadly there isn’t any competition for Facebook to improve. Community posts and the standard “post a report” response to which nothing changes lays it all bare for years of neglect. What do all the FB programmers actually do? Do they even use their own product and have pride in it still? All the focus is on advertising tools and the core product has been left to rot.
jono133 - Freedom of Speech has gone
FB has become so PC that it is destroying freedom of speech to pander to a few whets. Look cyber bullying etc is disgraceful but losing the ability to express ones opinion through being censored by some PC cretin is worse. I don’t object to folk being able to express their opinions providing it does not proactively incite real violence and clearly the arbiter at FB has a very low tolerance level - if someone states they think that white people are to blame for people trafficking- I have no issue with it, they have a right to an opinion
As soon as the freedom of speech and opinion is lost so to is real democracy and the antifa become stronger and ironically more repressive the very thing they sate they are against. As usual with these sort or movements if an issue is pro then it’s ok, if it’s against them it has to be censored and banned
Ask Adolph or Winston they both understood
tiger22000 - No push notifications working for anything important
Hi I am Not receiving any push notifications from anything Facebook related other than “Live” video notifications and “Friend suggestions” for over a year now? Everything else under my notification settings is enabled, and I have tried turning it off and on numerous times now. I am not being notified about upcoming events, friend requests, reminders, tags, birthdays, friends post updates or even comments people write on my timeline or comments I may be following?? I have an iPhone 6s Plus that is indeed up to date and works perfectly, and have tried reinstalling the Facebook app several times as well as reporting this to the Help section a few times now? Please Please Please fix this annoying and frustrating bug!!
j4yell3 - Annoyed
I am not angry with the app itself never have any problems with it what I am annoyed by however is the fact that u have to be connected to wifi to download it! I understand that it is a big file however I would at least prefer to be given the option to still download this app even if I am not connected to or near wifi! I know how internet usage works and I personally do not mind downloading such big files on my phone data as I have a large number of included gigabytes in my plan and I am well aware of how many gb this app will use in order to download it! I think you should really consider allowing the users who wish to purchase this app the have more then one option! Not happy
Tinochui - Lost post
I’ve been seeing so many advertising & unnecessary posts on Facebook and not actual updates from my friends. Which I can tolerate.
However I’m so annoyed that 2 of my most favorite posts of my traveling photos to Hong Kong and Paris are missing. I can see them on my own wall. But any of my friends try to click on my page cannot see them, they can see other posts i share previously in the same album (with the same privacy setting) but not the ones I just mentioned. Please help me bring this back as they hold sentimental values to me and I really want to share it with my Facebook family & friends.
Also, why can we only post only 40 pictures at a time now? Sometimes we’d like to add more into one post as it’s too annoying for others to see them in multiple posts, it would appear on their wall too many times.
Blocker95 - How many updates?!?!
I’m quite satisfied with Facebook. I don’t have anything particularly negative to say about the actual app itself.
Updates are becoming an issue. Don’t get me wrong, I love improvements and innovations. But being asked to download a nearly 300MB update what seems like every few days is getting ridiculous.
My internet downloads cap is put under enough strain as it is with Microsoft and their 50GB game updates and Apple with their nearly 3GB iOS updates, so you can understand my frustration that more and more organisations seem to be under the impression that the populace is okay with this new format of doing things and able to download terabytes of data at will. It’s not good enough...
Aussieinsunshine - A bit heartbroken
Facebook used to be a wonderful social revolution. Clean and all about connecting you with friends. This has steadily diminished since around 2010, to the point where we have a “social network” that fewer and fewer of us are dealing with. The messenger app is a great way to connect with overseas friends. However, I really miss the days when my Facebook feed wasn’t messy and full of marketing. When Facebook was all about connecting friends, keeping up to date with old friends and connecting with acquaintances.
People used to equate Facebook with friends and community; something really beautiful and no doubt hard to achieve. Having to satisfy shareholder greed has ruined it for most of us. It will continue to wither away without a fundamental change that I’m hopeful will come.
Flat Cat Designs - Irrelevant and unwanted newsfeed. Needs marketplace tweaking.
I now see so much advertising and less of the things and people I want to follow. Organising my groups of friends so I can post relevant information to each group or keep things private from the likes of co workers seems to have been changed yet again.
Can’t see marketplace easily on my iPad. Which is the best device to use due to size of screen. Marketplace should integrate a payment method to stop the amount of no shows for items. If they have no tangible consequences they have no reason to show up. And the feedback needs tweaking as once someone messages you they can leave negative feedback even if they have purchased nothing. And if you message direct from a sales group there is no way to leave feedback.
Akira_007 - Unfair bans
I find that Facebook is unfairly banning my posts. I have checked every post that made me banned, and none of them were abusive or harassing anyone, despite Facebook telling me it is. And then when I submitted to get the posts to be reviewed, Facebook still tells me it is against some policy, and doesn’t bother explaining why. Not only that, but the person I was in a debate with was the one calling me names.
I am highly disappointed in the fact that Facebook bans you from posting without any kind of warning first. I am also disappointed that the ban, for some reason, also applies to messenger, so I am unable to message anybody for 3 days simply because of a comment Facebook deemed inappropriate despite the fact I checked and made sure it didn’t break any rules to begin with.
Linusbronhill - Improvements not an improvement and not working? Snowflakes?
If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it! Changes and updates which don’t work or which create a less efficient system are pointless?
Please.. can we get back to times when posts were listed chronologically. A time when we didn’t have to search for something we have seen but not then unable to find it? A time when one can delete their posts of now obsolete or outdated without the system hanging! A messenger system which used to be part of FB but went independent so it seems and changes same where one cannot easily delete prior conversations once read and tedium in doing so? Messenger app requiring separate download. If FB cuts this then provide an alternative as part of their system?
mahalobins - Aghast at lack of support or communication
It has been six weeks that I have been locked out of my Facebook account due to a very puzzling error or slip of the finger indicating that I was under 13 years of age! I have never had a problem with Facebook but suddenly due to a possible typographical error when checking my personal data, this block occurred.
I Immediately sent in their required ID to prove who I was, plus a photo and submitted it to them. Heard nothing. So far I have submitted my ID 6 times over the past month - Something that should’ve been amended very quickly. Instead, just silence and each time I tried to answer it I’m told to submit my ID.! I don’t know what else I can do – appealing does nothing as there is totally no communication or acknowledgement. I am fed up and disgusted with the lack of customer support.
2hy-0w1 - Notifications
Since I updated it with the most recent update (did it about two days ago) my Facebook App has been playing up with the Notifications. I’ll go to tap the notification that comes up in the notifications section and instead of taking me to the post it's on about it’ll take me to the group that the notification is on about (only playing up with group notifications; probably should have mentioned that earlier but oh well). It's very annoying as I need to be able to find the specific post easily for the kind of groups I'm in and with this, it becomes very very difficult to find the post the notification is trying to notify me about.
Shaz at play - What’s going on?
What’s on my mind, FB asks? I open up fb this morning, and all I see are adverts and news items - 25 in total, before I see a friend’s status. 25!!!! And none of these news items are from news pages that I actually liked and followed!!!!
I don’t have time to scroll thru them all to find out what everyone’s been up to..... when I open up fb I want to read what’s there and then carry on with life. I don’t go looking, if someone has posted a status, it should be there for us to read- in date and time order (and if someone’s comments on their status, and it jumps ahead of others, that’s fine).
Just putting it out there.... 😮🙄🤔
Isafrizz - Pages & People You Follow/Liked Are Not Private
Currently, liked/followed pages you have on Facebook can be seen by anyone, with no way of keeping those settings private. (I know this because I’ve done my research).
This is an extreme breach of privacy in terms of the information people who stalk a Facebook account, whether it be colleagues, employees, family members, friends and regular acquaintances who may be making inaccurate judgments about you based on the people you follow.
For example, I follow a political commentator who I disagree with on many points, but my reason for following her is because I like certain other points she has and sometimes the good she does. I have lost a lot followers (particularly who share my political views) and they haven’t explained why they unfriended me, but I know it has something to do with pages and people I follow. This is not fair to anyone, and should not be the Facebook standards that anyone should have the mistake of creating an account have to suffer the consequences of. I thought Facebook was a safe and community based network that was created to allow people who are different, yet know each other to come together and share posts that reflect their external life?
Cailenrachael - Bad re-designing
I'm usually okay redesigning the app but these last few updates have been disgusting. Moving the notification button to the far left of the screen, is very hard for a right handed person to have easy access to a common used feature. Also moving the button to quick access messenger to the top of the screen is ridiculous, you either have to extra the app or scroll up till the search bar pops up to press this button. It should be switched with the marketplace button. Marketplace isn't an everyday use section. Why not put it at the top and move messenger access back to the bottom or make the top search bar stay on the screen when scrolling.
Very frustrated with new update.
lorrai55 - FB/marketplace/upgrade/address
I don’t have access to wifi.
Your demand that I upload 150mg isn’t possible until I go to App Store in CBD PERTH WA! grrrr
Trying use marketplace. However when I need to see the ad again after initial contact it send me back to FB marketplace but I have to search ALL OVER AGAIN EVERY AD TO FIND THE “”see details”” of the offer to sell.
ADDRESS DEFAULT “PERTH” Are you having a laugh at sellers and buyers expense??
I give up gumtree at least gives you correct address where FB offers it to be entered but the suburb won’t set. It REVERTS to Perth-totally USELESS programming element.
I can’t afford drive 50km nor is the savings on a marketplace product worth a 100km round trip in fuel to buy UNLESS ONE KNOWS THE SUBURB. 🤪🤪🤪🤪
Please review THREE problems
1. Upgrade not allowing FB access without signing in on EVERY click...grrr high FB group page user...give up fighting the marketplace...gumtree far better programming for user.
2.Set address of seller instead of default Perth (useless)
3.at least when potential buyer wants to review the ad (or ads) send them back, relocate them back to ACTUAL ad. Not just to the homepage for buyer to BEGIN SEARCHING AGAIN in total frustration. Get it together or go home.
Glenndingo - Show comments in order and stop auto refreshing newsfeed
No wonder people can’t discuss things on social media. The comments appear out of order based on user response such as likes or who you know rather than discussion order. Despite a few sort options there is no ability to choose “posting order”. This renders the comments on a post useless and no true discussion possible. Please fix this.
It is so frustrating when looking at a post, switch to another app or close phone momentarily and when I return to FB the newsfeed refreshes. Sometimes I have no idea who or what page posted the update I was reading. Other times I simply want to scroll through the feed rather than getting a new set of updates. Please remove this annoying, frustrating, unnecessary “feature”
Pop Russell - slow, cumbersome and insecure?
Heaven forbid if your device is more than 2 years old, the app runs like a lame dog. Updates come and old problems are reintroduced, functions are moved from one area to another for no apparent reason than someone wants a change. Then all of a sudden despite the specific choice of no on facial recognition my photos are being facially recognised on other posters pages?? The much vaunted privacy and security😳. Yeah right, in your dreams. Then there are the adds and posts that they think their software is clever enough to figure out what I want to see. Really! I’m glad Zuckerberg is so rich. It keeps the dream alive that a clever idea, no matter how bad the implementation can make you a success. Is this negative? Probably, but it’s my humble opinion.
Beastwhisperer - Needs a user bias instead of the “sponsor@ bias.
Hey, there’s much about Facebook I like, but...
I was recently scammed by persistent advertisers on Facebook. I was unable to directly inform Facebook through any link. Even the Australian Federal Police said they were unable to get Facebook to pull advertisements from scammers. Irate comments by scammed customers were continually deleted so others were uninformed of the trap. And ads from them are STILL appearing about two months after biting me.
AND, I’d like to see improvements on “Market-place”. I need to be able to view original posts and comments from the gallery views. Many groups rely on open “Sold” & “NIL” comments to prioritise buyers so this inability to get to the original post hampers sales and access to due processes.
JazM07 - Is it too much to ask to just be able to see your news feeb by most recent?!
I’m so over the Facebook app! You can’t tailor things to the way you actually want to consume them. You have to go through and ‘prioritise who you see first.’ No Facebook, I don’t want to have to say I want to see Becky last, it’s a ‘news feed,’ no a ‘popularity feed.’ Recently there were fires and wind storms in my area, but do you think I could actually see posts that were important and breaking news? No, because if I wanted to see ‘Canberra news’ first, I’d have to freaking prioritise them in my news feed - and then I’d just get spammed with their most popular stories and miss out on the other stuff going on. For now, I think I’m just going to quit the app.
Dueraincloud - Newsfeed dejavu
Please Facebook, stop “refreshing” older posts to the top of newsfeed every time someone comments or “likes”. Just leave posts in chronological order so I am not missing new posts from my friends as they are buried way down the list below older posts I have already seen time and again, as well as “suggested” posts. If anyone comments on a seen post, I will find it via notifications. I do not need it put back up the top of newsfeeds yet again!
Also, please make it easier to turn off unwanted features, like everyone on my friends list being notified if I comment or “like” a post.
Please Facebook developers, listen to your users and do not assume everyone wants the same features. Just because you would like something does not mean everyone else does too.
whitewvlf - Facebook sides with abusers
I posted a screenshot of a horrific comment on my personal Facebook that someone posted to me on one of my statuses. I stated above the screenshot picture that this kind of abuse was unacceptable and this person should be ashamed. This person reported my status and I was banned for 24 hours.
How can Facebook ban someone for standing up for themselves? Did they not even see the picture of the screenshot comment and the abhorrent things this person had said to me in that comment?
Facebook sides with abusers and bullies, and silences anyone who wants to stand up for themselves. Wrong, wrong, wrong. I am disgusted. Their algorithm for banning is disgraceful. They cut off a vulnerable person at a vulnerable time from their lifeline of literally life saving communication at the request of a bully. This issue needs more light and support.
Orange Jellies - please reeead
lol i knew there was a reason why facebook was rated this low >~< its user interface, customer support, and most importantly the frustration it makes u feel is overwhelming. Ive had facebook for five years and it hasnt improved a bit, except for visual upgrades. But its same extremely buggy page and upload system just adds frustration onto frustration- ok its just bad. I upload a post: facebook deletes it and it just disappears. Sometimes the post is birthday posts and it contains precious messages that just ends up being deleted for no reason. The frustration it makes you feel is UNREAL. this happened AGAIN TODAY and THATS WHY im writing this review. This is exactly the reason why i dont post on facebook anymore. Its design and interface just cant get any better than a one star rating.
ScottiJT - iPad screen rotation bugs, app is now annoying.
Newest version is horrid, if you have your iPad (in my case, air2) locked in landscape orientation, everything is fine until you click a photo or video whereby the app ignores rotation lock and displays the photo or video in portrait orientation (even if iOS settings have locked to landscape to prevent rotation). Have submitted bug report numerous times and it’s just getting worse to the point the app is annoying to use. Facebook should not over-ride selected iOS settings, and I don’t feel like I need to play iPad tumble just to view some friends and family photos. Fix your app Facebook, these constant “improvements” without details are just annoying and need better bug testing.
started great times two - Frustrating App
I used to love this app but it is just awful to use now. News feed doesn’t scroll down and I have tried all the forum suggestions. Cleared my cache. Changed web browsers. Killed the app then downloaded again. It’s just constantly like this and even shorter news feeds since the recent update. Nothing is in order, go from 1 hr ago to 5 days ago. Has got ridiculous. No wonder the app rating is so low! With all the ads you post in the news feed you would think you have plenty of money to keep your software at decent level and Facebook support?? What support? When you tell them you have tried their fix suggestions they suddenly disappear and no longer respond. Extremely disappointing in today’s technology advancements
Ft Ginga - BRING BACK LIKES
You’re just making this app worse and worse. No wonder why the younger generation don’t even use it, it’s useless. Likes gives us an idea of what article or post is good. The reactions tell us how the general public feel, like WHY would you take that away?! I get it, mental health is an issue but stop trying to fix something that’s isn’t broken. Taking away the number of likes isn’t going to fix it, the person whose mental health youre all concerned about will still see the number of likes, hence what’s the point?! They’ll still feel dissatisfied if they don’t get whatever number they want. But fine. Understandable, hide peoples likes BUT WHY GROUPS AND PAGES?! Omg it’s a public page, that’s the point - to see how people react! Are they angry, sad, is the article funny? Now you don’t know.

Where’s dark mode?
Dan16392 - Freezes up
When looking at people's pictures, the app freezes up and you have to close the app 100% to use it again!! Only since new update yesterday!!
hrd4mud - Crashes regularly after last update
Every time I view a pic it crashes. Scrolling the feed is ok but click to view a pic and it crashes have to close app manually and restart it at the top of the feed again. Happens every single time after the last update. Don't release an update until it's tested !!!! How can I go back a version ?
Jshssj - Notification glitches
Keeps telling me I have 9+ notifications even after I’ve checked them all, it will even say I didn’t look at them in the Notification Center. Messenger is saying I have 1 unread message but I don’t. Please fix this.

Little God's Child - App freezes after looking at a pic
This is a piece of junk. App freezes after I open a picture. I had to shut down my phone to restart it. I think I will stay off this till it is fixed. What a waste of time. Does FB think we have nothing better to do than to keep restarting our phones?! I closed the app to reopen but didn't work. Ugh!
LexJacksonBlack - Terrible
If there was another site similar to Facebook I would jump ship in a heartbeat, this is the worst app around. I start scrolling on marketplace and then my entire iPad crashes. Now you can’t even send messages. But they are always “updating” to make the app even worse. Stop updating, just fix the problems, don’t add more! Also there is absolutely no help on this site if you have a problem or get hacked, they just refer to a website that has all the “answers” and it just asks if you have the latest version of the app, not actually answering the question. They also don’t allow you to post something for sale because it “goes against their policies” but allows people to post scams, and have big ads that slander public figures. In conclusion if the developers out there come up with a better, different app, I predict that Facebook will probably go out of business, after all a site that has this many problems is not untouchable.

Facebook is a racist application that supports the Israeli occupation state .It prevents the free people of the world from defending the Palestinian people and their rights. It systematically and purposely removes and suspends accounts of those who tell the Palestinian narratives of events or defend their right of freedom and self determination.

gutted1957 - NO HELP AVAILABLE FOR HACKED ACCOUNT
My FB account was hacked and I have completed lost it. The email I used to set up the account years ago is now obsolete and a phone number was not required. FB does not have any contacts to help. I suspect the hacker is still using my account and FB does not have any info on how to shut the account for me. So scary and disappointing. I guess they have enough users so they just don’t care!

laly_g - Double standards
I’m extremely disappointed in Facebook, as for last months I noticed it has openly been supporting double standards. It’s quite obvious Facebook is against justice and openly takes sides of criminals and bullies. Shame on You, Facebook. Your team is a bunch of hypocrites who is trying to silence people telling the truth and is supporting the low mannered, intolerant and dangerous psychopaths. “Great job”, #MarkZukerberg.
Eey0u - Lots of scams!!

Hazeldad - Slower
The last time I wrote a review for Facebook, I had an iPhone 4S; now I have an iPhone 10 S. I would say that overall the app has improved, but I think our expectations have also increased, so I continue to give it three stars.
Personally, I am not having a lot of glitches where the apps shuts down, or post failed to upload. It really is a wonderful way for people to connect with one another, share their experiences, and debate social issues.
My biggest complaint is that when I am writing a new post, I can only see two lines of text at any one time. It is incredibly difficult to know whether I’ve made a mistake, or not, so I end up submitting the post, and then going back to edit it at which time I can see at least an entire paragraph. It seems to me that when one is making a new post. The text box should occupy the majority of the screen.
One feature I would like to see is the ability to mark all notifications as read as one can do on a laptop version.
I would also like to find someway to ensure that people can be exposed to different points of view. I fear that we all will be getting posts that we agree with if the feed is filled with posts that are similar to ones that we have liked in the past. This may be fine for some people, but I really appreciate getting contrary points of view to consider. Perhaps that could be an option in preferences somewhere.
Dead Kenny B - Junk App
Facebook updates regularly and adds or adjusts features but never seems to fix actual problems. Of course, Facebook is feedback-aversive. A new issue has popped up - when you share a post and select “Write” so you can add notes, the predictive text doesn’t work properly. If you’re typing and then click on the completed word and hit space afterward, it actually backspaces and erases the last letter of the word that was just put there. If you don’t catch it and retype the last letter and hit space and start typing the next word, you end up with one long word instead of two. This is is s new glitch that Facebook hasn’t bothered to fix in its many updates since the glitch started. Also now when I open the app, I have maybe two or three posts and it will not scroll down any further. I guess Mark Zuckerburg is too busy helping Trump and fascism to really give a rat’s behind about what’s going on with the app. (You can catch a thirty day ban if you insult a snowflake Republican, but by all means start a white nationalist page that openly promotes sedition because that’s okay according to Facebook.)
Zildjiancat - Too many stupid rules
What the heck has happened to this once serviceable app? Seems it’s now run by people with their own agenda. Anything that doesn’t fit their liberal narrative is promptly removed. It locks up, locks out, picks and chooses what I get to see, etc. and enough with the idiotic bi-monthly updates! It’s constantly being updated for no apparent reason other than to shove more useless advertising in our faces and make it harder to see ALL comments (default is to “relevant” - I should get to decide what I deem relevant - NOT Facebook police - and yet I cannot change my settings to ALL; I have to constantly change it for every single post. Ridiculous!) from whoever on my friends list Facebook seems I should be able to see. Last time I checked, this was the United States, where freedom is the underlying principle. We should be able to make our own choices as to what we see and read. Most of us are adults and can handle trolls. And all of a sudden, we have to dig up our stupid passwords just to get into the site. I was on this morning with no problem. Now I need to dig up my password. Aggravating.
More like FaceBroke - Facebroke
It’s obvious the developers don’t read the reviews here. Otherwise, they’d actually address the problems. People are only able to see a few posts before they can’t scroll any further. Weeks old posts are labeled as recent. Comments on posts either don’t appear, or you have to keep clicking “most relevant” then “all posts” to get them to appear. The flagging algorithm is a total mess. Anyone can be accused of “hate speech” and will be punished for it, even when nothing remotely resembling hate speech was said. Meanwhile, someone can make one racist comment after another, get reported, and nothing happens to them. Pictures showing no nudity or sexual content get flagged for “violating community standards” while pictures actually containing nudity, are allowed to stay. Typing is becoming nearly impossible. The space button either doesn’t work, inserts “.”, or completely changes the typed words into gibberish. Using predictive texting results in more gibberish. I could go on and on. Fix your app/website, before you end up going the way of Tom, and his Space. Because that’s where you’re headed.
unhappypat - Char Broil grills
I am sending this with one star rating because it won’t let me send zero star rating. A $450 Grill I ordered arrived at my home today. I am 74 and have health issues which makes me high risk for corona virus. Since I could not buy it at a store because of the virus for the first time I bought directly from Char Broil’s web page. I was shocked to return from a doctor’s visit to find a 140 pound box dumped in the middle of my driveway blocking the steps to my deck and side door. I called Char Broil and explained why I needed to return the grill. I thought it would be partially assembled. They refused to take it back because I should have known how it would be packaged. They did not care about any health concerns I had about shopping in a store and were not responsible for how Fed Ex delivered it. They said it was my responsibility to find someone to move it to my deck and put it together. For the past 20 years I have had nothing but Char Broil Grills at my home but I always bought them from Walmart’s or Lowe’s with a return policy. I have learned a hard lesson. If you buy a Char Broil Grill DO NOT BUY IT DIRECTLY FROM CHAR BROIL but buy it from a vendor.
Mr.stevie1000 - Marketplace searching
Facebook is single handily creating the fastest way to destroy there user base. Every time the app updates it might "fix" one thing but breaks another. I am tired of there "fixes" apparently there is not testing department there anymore they use the public to test. The marketplace searching now stopped working with the latest update. Does not matter what I search for nothing shows up no matter how far out I look. I can see the items and search for the title of the items I see still nothing. The recent posts I want to see what happened with my friends since the last time I was on and that is a total joke. It worked perfect then they "fixed" that also maybe so they could put more adds on my wall or something but either way all it is doing is driving there users away in droves. I have started to follow my family and friends on other apps because so many of them have chosen other paths for there social media. Facebook you had the keys to the kingdom but just as my space is gone so shall you if you don't start to listen to your reviews and users!
LadyCiCi86 - Last update is buggy
Newest update has caused me to no longer receive notifications on the platform itself (not just push notifications/alerts), but I receive no notification at all. I realized this was happening a few days ago after seeing posts from friends to my timeline, comments and mentions whilst scrolling through timeline but noticed that I’d never gotten any alert to the activity. I’ve even watched my husband send me invitations and tag me in comments on posts and received nothing in my end.
The last update was released 4 days ago and I’ve had this active issue for 3... I’ve logged out and back in, deleted and reinstalled the app, rebooted my phone, checked my account elsewhere in a new browser window, double checked my notification settings... all to no avail.
I use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, especially now, so it’s even more irksome that I’m missing out on anything that may be being shared with me and the possibility that I may never see/know if I missed anything. Very frustrating.
This is a basic feature - please fix it ASAP.
LadyRaevyn - I loved it....once
I use Facebook a lot. I run a group where I am a big advocate of scheduled posts. I post about 15 times per day using this method and schedule my posts out a month at a time, and then go in and move things around as needed. Sometime between the last time I managed my groups posts a week ago and today the scheduled posts option in the group disappeared. Now I have to go on the desktop site on my computer, scroll through about 200 posts, reschedule a single post, the page refreshes, and then I have to scroll through 200 posts again to edit the next one. Previously the app would allow me to make all of my edits, and then refresh all at once and check to make sure everything was good. I could edit 100+ posts and only refresh and scroll through all my posts once or twice. This update just killed my group because now I’m no longer interested in scheduling the posts, and I don’t have time to make the posts daily which is why I scheduled them in the first place. I downloaded the new Facebook creator studio and it only supports pages, not groups.
RJLHB92 - Worst social media
Facebook use to be so fun and exciting. Now it just trouble, they literally block you for everything you do and don’t tell you how long you block. You can’t ask them to review your profile to lift the block. Every day it just tell me I’m temporarily block but don’t say for how long or anything. I didn’t post or share anything offensive. I was playing the omg game right before bed. I woke up the next day to a temporarily block, I tried to contact support on multiple occasions no one ever got back to me. It’s super annoying, that I can’t even connect with my family or friends because Facebook block me for posting, sharing, sending or receiving friends request, and I can’t send message on messenger for posting to many things at a short time according to they policy. I don’t understand isn’t that the point of social media to post and interact with others. I can post on Twitter, Snapchat and instagram all day without getting block. How y’all suppose to be the world great social media app when you treat the people who use your app constantly like trash. Fix this problem Facebook.
Bill2go - Garbage
I know that writing a review is pointless because, for years I’ve watched Facebook members complain about the same problems, over and over but, Facebook doesn’t listen. Facebook does it their way regardless of what its members request. The only reason Facebook has this review section is because Apple requires it. Facebook has never listened to its members, and never will. This app continues to be the most unreliable, complicated, cluttered mess I’ve ever seen. The news feed shows what Facebook wants you to see, instead of what your friends post, in the order it was posted. There are so many irrelevant advertisements on your timeline and you can’t even watch any videos without Facebook forcing you to watch another irrelevant commercial they’ve inserted into the video. Also, this is the most invasive app in the App Store. Facebook mines your personal information 24/7. The app uploads the contacts from your phone without you knowing and shares the information with everyone. **there are many more problems with this horrible app but, I’m out of time. I’ll be back to write more later**
Yama Yaka Yama - No HD Option for Videos and Bias Censorship is Nuts
The only resolution options for watching videos on an iPad Pro in this app are 240 to 480. There is no longer a 720 or 1080 option. The same videos can be set to 1080p in Safari.
Also the bias in your company is insane. Blocking pages, posts, kicking people off of the site (FaceBook Jail) for non threatening viewpoints your admins don’t agree with, and showing biased counter articles to liked articles are just a few examples. Did you know the companies you employ to weed out “Hate Speech” and “Fake News” are in theirselves well known extremely biased Fake News and Hate Speech perpetrators? I’m sure you do know this, as it seems the large majority of your employees are also extremely biased.
FaceBook used to be a great place for family and friends to connect, and it still is to a large degree. So many oversized companies such as yours are committing suicide by becoming hyper political. You have become another arm of the biased media pushing your agenda. Stay out of politics, it’s not your purpose. You did this. You can stop it.
dreadgawd - Ridiculous at this point(updated)
I’m really annoyed that u can get blocked FROM SHARING TOO FAST OR TOO MUCH!!! Literally that’s the dumbest update ever plus it doesn’t tell u how long you’ll be blocked for. On top of which Facebook won’t let me change my name back to my nickname. So ridiculous. It’s a thumbs down for me until developers remove such unnecessary feature.
Idk what’s been going on with my Facebook but it’s been tweaking. When I write a status it’s blank until I view it on my page n even sometimes it’s still blank now I can’t even react to anything. This app was fine before you people add things when there’s nothing else to fix then open up a whole new set of problems.
Update: it’s horrible. Why is Facebook telling me I have no internet connection and acting as such when I’m using it?? Because I have both WiFi and data so there’s no reason why my whole Facebook won’t load a thing or let me post anything. This needs to be fixed I’m just about tired of all these “new” trash features that come with a whole new set of problems. Developers?? Do you even listen to feedback?
Killerbcode - This app is awfull
Organizing events with the friends is the only reason I keep this app around. Otherwise I would delete it and my Facebook account as well. The app constantly fails to load. It will show three post in my feed and just end or just show a failed to load message constantly. I keep turning off specific notification in the app and they keep seeming to turn on or the app just ignores the fact they are turned off. I’m constantly getting notification telling me that someone I don’t care about commented on some other person I don’t care about status or notifications that so and so updated there status. It’s basically spam I can’t seem to turn off unless I unfriend everyone witch at that point I might as well delete the app. I would turn all notifications off in Notification Center but again I might as well just delete the app at that point. These are just the problems I have constantly encountered with the app itself. I haven’t even touched on all the issues with Facebook as a platform but most of you probably already know about all that from the new.
iBimmer27 - Account removed without notification!
I have been a Facebook user for over 9 years and had great memories shared with friends along with photos and all removed with no notification! Was on Facebook 5 days ago now one morning from watching a video on Facebook watch then 10 minutes later I was logged off without notice! I tried logging back onto my account and was asked to present Identification, I sent it and no response back whatsoever to this day. Currently it states “information received, due to the Covid situation they have fewer staff and may be unable to review the account”! I’m very disappointed in this app! it also removed my account along with my instagram account and messenger app, it’s so devastating to a person that absolutely never done anything to violate the Facebook community policy! 😔I guess we are to blame for even putting so much trust in Facebook. Until Facebook make changes I will not be back, I will not make a new profile or give you all any advertising! Mark Zuckerberg I hope you make the proper changes, it’s a real shame when MySpace looks better right about now 🥴
dog.mom.af - I hope I’m not the only one complaining.
I’m not sure what’s going on but for about a month now I’ve been having this issue where I can watch a video and then it stops halfway through and shows the play button. When I press the play button it starts over about three seconds before the video stopped and then does it again at the same point. Not only that, but my news feed refuses to load anything more than about three status updates or ads and you can’t refresh it what so ever. This is getting incredibly annoying. I don’t know if anyone else is having the same issues but it’s frustrating when I can only see three post from hours ago along with only half of a posted video. Also, it’s not my service because this happens with my data and over WiFi. It’s complete garbage. Another thing is the whole friend suggestions, I get you guys are trying new things but that’s about as annoying as you suggesting that I would like posts in the marketplace that I never even use. The last update was complete crap and I really hope someone looks into this.
cayates94 - Random Features Not Working???
So I’ve used Facebook for a long time, like most people writing a review. Recently I’ve had these random glitches or difficulties with certain things? The most recent being this—if I’ve commented on a status, and then in turn another friend did as well, I can’t see the comment. I’ll click on the notification and get taken to the status, but it won’t show me any comments.
With the start of these random glitches, I thought that maybe I needed to update the app. Nope. All up to date. And it seems like there’s a new issue popping up each week. Like I can’t search for posts in a group I’m in (like in the search bar) so that I can revisit the post. It won’t let me select it. If someone likes a comment, it doesn’t show up (but the notification that it happened does). So, not sure what’s going on, but I’m getting more and more annoyed with this particular platform. If it weren’t for the fact that it’s the only platform my friends and family use, I would be switching to something different.
Gmus1 - Stickers and videos
Ok. I don't really like the new bubble format on the comments, but I'll live. But I just accidentally typed a laughing face sticker with it's tongue hanging out where it was totally inappropriate. And now I can't figure out how to remove it. I could on the previous update, but can't with this one. And I really don't like that if you so much as tap a sticker it posts without any warning. If you can remove stickers, please let me know how because I don't want my friend thinking I'm an insensitive jerk because I hit a wrong button. Thank you.
And now videos play with sound automatically???? I’m a caregiver for my grandmother on hospice. I have to hear my phone ring in case I am needed by my parents or her nurse, but sitting in there with her wakes her up if sound plays. I know there are ways around this, but I can’t put earphones in because she might need me and despite what it says on your little pop up message, you can’t disable it in apps. So, I guess I just won’t use Facebook even though I need to for my job. You’ve probably also upset mothers with sleeping littles.
STOP FIXING WHAT ISN’T BROKE!!!
GeminiCraze - Unfair muting
I got muted for typing a nursery rhyme
“Boy are rotten made out of cotton...” like who does that? Then I got muted for calling a cyber bully a troll for troll me. A troll is someone who comes in the internet and just looks for people to start an argument with. So then I reported someone that made the same comment and Facebook didn’t mute that person- the message said that person didn’t violate community guidelines. So now I’m thinking something is prejudice about this. 2 commenters same comment but only myself gets muted. You guys have unfair practice. A whole group allows people to bully and call people white trash and the admins don’t do anything when you report it. That group should be shut down! Soul Food Foodies. I have reached out to them several times because a member kept harassing me and other members. That group needs to be shut down for allowing racism and bullying, everyday. I shouldn’t be muted because I called someone out for trolling me. That’s what a troll is. Not the monster, the person that randomly harassed people on the internet is called a troll. So unfair and you have no way to tell yourside if the story.
grumpyBlueFox - My account was disabled with no reason provided
I am very frustrated because my account, which I’ve had since middle school, was disabled with no given reason. It wanted me to provide my ID to confirm that I am indeed me, however, its been 3 days already and still nothing. Unfortunately I cant even access the email associated with my FB account because I created it the same time I joined FB, so I cant even guess my security question or remember any passwords that I’ve used for that email in the past. I thought I did connect it to another one of my personal emails, but none of those worked in helping me recover my account. I am very disappointed that my account was deactivated even though I haven’t posted in months. I have used messenger (and also Instagram) quite frequently to connect with all my friends and family for years until this happened.
In desperation I tried to create two new accounts with new emails but even those were disabled. FB, please - if this ever gets reviewed, long time users like me deserve an explanation as to why our accounts were suddenly disabled.
Koyance - Trash I’ll just go to IG
I deleted(not deactivated but fully deleted) my previous account to take a break from social media. Recently, my business has taken off, so I created a new Facebook. It marked my account a fraud and disabled it after I added family members. I appealed it and everything and they revoked my usage. So I tired again, I went through this process several times submitting all types of required sensitive and personal information. Facebook asked for my ID to verify it’s authenticity yet the fine print stated they cannot even accurately determine if a ID is real or not. Y’all have the audacity to store my personal document without given the option of perm enamor deletion. This feels like an invasion of privacy and a scam to get more data to sale.
The worst part is they didn’t even let other users know it was disabled. I had clients and family contacting me to ask why I blocked them. Imagine trying to convince someone your account was disabled when Facebook gives them the same visual as if they was blocked.
Y’all should be ashamed of your customer service and tech support.
MJMiello - Too manipulative to use.
I’ll try to separate the mobile app from the service itself. I had to delete the app for two reasons. First it is nearly impossible not to slide into the camera which I don’t want at all. It creeps me out every time I inadvertently see my surroundings on the screen. Second, the new video feature (I guess their attempt to be more like you tube) is too easily accessed and there are very disturbing videos on there. Without really choosing to I found my watching videos that were not appropriate (a woman getting run over by a car) and I said “what did I just watch and when did I decide to watch that? It wasn’t even posted by someone I know. There were no effective settings whereby I could say, “never show me something like that again.” Sure I could block the random account that posted it but what good would that do? There are tons of trashy accounts. It is just easier not to use the mobile app. The desktop version is far mess manipulative (for now). We have given Facebook too much trust and time and time again they abuse it. And for what?
813g - A big joke
Was recently blocked from Marketplace for violating Commerce Policy. All I have or ever done was post pictures from my store to sell Mattresses. I’ve emailed them countless times but keep getting the same automated answer. NO HELP, I can’t even Find out what I supposedly did to violate or get proof for that matter. So know my family & daughter (in college) have to suffer and do without because my main stream of revenue was they MARKETPLACE. As I did research I found that a lot of ppl have had this problem as well & get no answer. REASONS FB MIGHT DISABLE UR ACCOUNT: not using ur real name, scraping the site, joining to many groups (which happened on my new account), posting offensive content, sending to many messages, “poking to may ppl”, sending the same message to many times. Many of these are aimed at spammers. To me FACEBOOK is erring on the aggressive side of enforcing Its policies. Needless to say a reason, proof, or how to correct the problem should be implemented in the system so innocent people’s lives don’t come crashing down because of some FB BOT. They make millions of dollars selling our likes & what nots but treat us as dirt.
ThatOneGamerKid - The app ISN’T as good as it used to be anymore!
Haven’t been on Facebook for like a month or two now, just have been busy. K that doesn’t matter, I know. The point is, I love this app, but I’m the past I remember creating pages for my profile. I’d create pages to advertise things such as my business and sales on our merchandise. Unfortunately, I think the app has been updated since I haven’t been on for a while. The reason I think this is because I can no longer create pages now! I click the “pages” button, and it brings me to a blank screen! Idk, it pisses me off. I want to be able to create pages from my phone without any problems. I don’t want to go up to my PC to do it every time, because I’d rather do it on my phone. Facebook needs to do a better job with their bug fixes, and keep improving the app every single day, making sure all bugs are erased. I want to have a CLEAN app without any interruptions!
lxmonadx - Haven’t been able to access basic tabs in OVER A MONTH.
Month or so ago, some important pages just stopped loading completely. I have no access to profile information unless someone has their join date in their public information, and I can’t access the settings page at all. Every time I try to open either of those, the app shows a loading icon for about a second before giving me the “An unexpected error occurred. Please try again later.” message, and nothing I do fixes it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, which didn’t fix anything. I’ve tried restarting my phone, and I’ve All it did was initialize app settings, which means I have the god awful app sounds on with no way to turn them off. I’ve reported the issue to Facebook MULTIPLE times, but obviously nothing has been done. Two basic but important functions of the app are just completely broken, and the it seems like the devs are refusing to fix it. I’m going to keep reporting the issue until it gets fixed, but considering how long it’s been going on, I’m not holding my breath.
GAMINGMAMA69 - The app gets worse and worse
Today, Buttons are missing with the latest update. I’m showing 48 notifications on the app badge. When I only have one. When I go into my notifications list within the app… I have well over 48 new notification showing and they are all out of order. Nowhere near chronological order one will be from a day ago that I’ve already open six times… And another will be from five minutes ago and then another one from 37 minutes agoAnd yet another one from 16 hours ago… It’s just ridiculous unable to figure out what the heck happened. By the way the Covid button from the menu bar at the bottom of the iOS app is now gone and it’s only in the menu which is totally fine by me. I really wish that we were able to choose which buttons we wanted at the bottom of our Facebook main application because I would prefer to have a button that lets me see everything in the newest order I would like more control over my main views and views within each sub menu as well
FunkyFish25 - New update is buggy
I'm not going to be as mean as some of the reviewers I've seen. I used to like the app before the recent update. But now it's really slow when scrolling. I'm not sure what I think about the side bar interface. And the new "grouping" feature on my latest updates page just make it cluttered and hard sift through. I recommend going back to the old model, it worked a lot better. Do that and I bump the review from 2 stars to 4, if you don't, I delete the app and close my profile.
Update: I’ve apparently not deleted the app in the years since I posted this, at this point 2 star rating is dropping to 1 star. A new complaint, we need to be able to turn off the auto-refresh feature on iPhone, even if it is an old model 6. Sometimes I’ll close out the app to do something else but would like to continue from where I was at when I closed, but when I go to open the app it auto-refresh's and lose whatever post I was reading and my page is cluttered with a buttload of more non-sense.
Slim Jaee - Bring back the old days
Facebook is getting out of pocket trying to compete with the next application. Facebook stories are stupid and get in the way when I'm scrolling, they irritate me when I'm on the messenger app and the Facebook app, AND I hate when every time I add someone on Facebook I get dumb "You and --- are now connected in messenger." DUH that's obvious if we're Facebook friends! I wish there was a way to turn all this message off. The app also uses your location and basically stalks you. It’s no coincidence that every time I visit s store like walmart or target I see an ad for it on facebook. If I talk about a website my phone shows me ads for it on facebook. This is creepy. I use my phone at work a lot and a guest came in and somehow found my facebook even though i didn’t tell him my name and my facebook name isn’t similar to my government name. Give us back our privacy! Lastly, every time it updates I lose the facebook marketplace which is where i sell and buy most items.. I just want everything back to how it was!
G.Parish - Features are always breaking.
Seems like with every update, some tried and true feature breaks. I use an iPad primarily to go on Facebook, and I’m really bummed with a recent change. It used to be that if you got a notification that someone replied to a comment you made on a post (in a group), you could click the notification, and it would take you to that post- even right to the comment. Now, it only takes you to the group main page. There is no indication what post or comment the notification is talking about. You would have to scroll through and think what you might have commented on that someone might have replied to. I cannot find the posts I’m being notified about, in other words.
When I click on a notification, it should take me right to the place it’s notifying me about. But it doesn’t.
I just did the latest update today, in hopes this would be fixed, but no luck. This is so frustrating a stupid. Why notify me if I can never find the post or comment? Please fix this!! It worked fine before, but not for the last two weeks.
wrw1962 - Being booted off unfairly
My son and his girlfriend was fighting she made a post about me and I reposted and blocked from Facebook! This trashy girlfriend said some awful things about me on my sons phone. I put up with it for 2 days then the topper I had to repost. This stupid girl threatens me called me every name in the book and then some and I was the one that got booted of FB this is so wrong! You have no clue what I have put up with
Today I was right in the middle of talking to some one about getting a Maine Coon kitten and I could not finish the conversation because this stupid Girl had me blocked said I threaten her life and done nothing but harassed her. Well I got pictures of the conversation but FB don’t want to see them!
Been on here since they first started and no problems until this girl got in my sons life!
After they blocked me I can no longer play games, I am missing some very important phone numbers. I have no way to get ahold of my mom she’s ill and in Az and I’m in Iowa!
Sad FB allows people gettin no killed, molesters, animal abuse, but I say something to stick up for myself and I get booted! Time to find a lawyer!
Collinsbg - A+++
LOVEEE ittt! 😍 #itisthebest #longtimemember #itsamazing 👯♀️
Honestly, they couldn’t have made a better social media site to stay in touch with family and friends! I have tried pretty much all of the social media sites out there, and I have to say, this one is BY FAR the absolute BEST.
However, there are some things that I’d LOVE to see added on/changed. Facebook has already made some ahhmazing changes and “add-ons”. I mean, I really can’t complain but I would love to see some new things (i.e) like.. (1). maybe they could add some blogging to the mobile site. (2). They could allow more than the set limit that they have as far as is many “friends” you can have without exceeding a certain limit. (3). I think it would be REALLY awesome if they could add some “color themes” to choose from for each individual page. (4). I think it would be great if we could choose from a particular set of “FONTS” to type with? Yes, I know there are different types of “apps” to choose from to download on our phones for that- BUT not everyone can read them due to having different types of phones. So yeah, “FONTS” that we can all choose from where everyone could see would be GREAT! 👍🏼
Other than that, Facebook ROCKS! 🤘🏼

mollyollymc - INCLUDE ORIGINAL POST.
Update August 2020: Drop the “ask for more photos” in the marketplace picture slideshows. We’re not stupid, we know how to message people if we need more pictures. It just wastes everyone’s time scrolling through a pointless extra picture your developers added. I’m able to include original post again tho, thank you guys so much. I’m adding two stars because that’s amazing.
UPDATE June 2020: We are unable to “include original post” when sharing others’ links. Much of the commentary is lost in this way. Probably done intentionally, as there are no accidents here. Please fix, because you’re killing important discussions.
Whatever the last update was, it broke our activity logs. I rely on Activity Log to go review where I’ve commented before. YOU CAN NO LONGER click your activity to go to the source. Also, the COMMENTS’ *REPLIES* are displaying out of order. Please back to CHRONO ORDER on replies. Thank you.
Silista - Disappointed
While Facebook is great at allowing connections with people we may not otherwise have the chance to, I’m constantly frustrated with the app.
You ask for my location and where I live. I post stuff and check into things in the area I live in, yet some how you’re always advertising events not in my area. I live in VA and yet the events that always show up are in PA. I shouldn’t have to allow you access to the location of my phone for you to be able to get this right. You know what area I live, post and mainly check in at. You have the ability to create an algorithm that will show me events actually in my location. If you don’t have that ability, then you should at least have it set so we can easily change and set the location for the events it shows us. A setting that stays that way.
I’m also concerned that you’re constantly talking about censorship. You want to censor information from the media, but you won’t sensor out scammer advertising. I along with others have seen advertising for items, gone onto the website and purchased items, for them to never show up and the company be non contactable. This is an increasingly annoying issue. You have to go google search these items now if you’re interested so you can buy them from an actual reputable company.
You want to focus on miss information, focus on the things that are actually negatively impacting your users, rather than if something fits your agenda or not.
Franciscomega117 - You made Facebook worse
Facebook used to be cool years ago. I don’t know what you did to the app, but you screwed it up!!! There is NO WAY to see ALL THE POSTS of the people I am friends with, and the pages I liked. Why am I going to be friends with somebody, or hit “like” to a page if FACEBOOK IS NOT GOING TO SHOW ME THEIR POSTS. The worst thing is that, THERE IS NO WAY TO SEE ALL THE POSTS OF YOUR LIKED PAGES AND FRIENDS. Facebook only shows me people and pages I don’t care. And don’t reply me back saying “you can fix that by following them and going to “watch first””. I have a limit of 10 friends and pages I can “watch first”, which is the only stupid option Facebook let the users to watch all the posts. It does not matter if you follow people, Facebook WILL NOT SHOW their posts. You made Facebook WORSE. That’s why I use instagram, which you are trying to turn into a Facebook with that useless thing of “IGTV”. Since you bought instagram you made it worse. The same with Facebook. Why would you send me to “IGTV” on instagram or send me to “Facebook Watch” on Facebook ? I DONT WANNA GO SOMEWHERE ELSE JUST TO WATCH A FULL STUPID VIDEO.
Infantryblue - Seriously disappointed
As of late, I have become deeply disappointed with Facebook as a whole. Ive been on Facebook for quite a few years now, and I have seen some really ridiculous changes recently. I’ve been banned from using Facebook a few times, some of which I can definitely say “yeah. I probably had that coming”. However. I have left many groups and pages that were negative and have made absolutely sure not to post anything that was offensive intentionally. Yet I still get a 30 day ban. For what, you ask? Well. I couldn’t tell you. Reason being, Facebook didn’t tell me. Even when I requested a review, they said I posted something that violated community standards, (which, by the way, are a complete joke). They’ll allow terrorist support groups, and groups that encourage violence against others that oppose a certain political spectrum, yet label people and ban them. It’s absolutely ludicrous. The ONLY reason I haven’t disabled my account and given Facebook the middle finger, is because it’s the only way I have to keep in contact with many buddies from the military.
Peanuttty888 - Marketplace - not available for everyone!
Have been trying to get marketplace on my phone with no success. I have tried everything 2X over. From the research I have done, Facebook offers this feature to whom they so choose, when it should be a feature available to everyone. What’s better than not offering features to one that you offer to another is they are completely wasting people’s time, offering solutions you and they both know won’t work. Facebook is doing absolutely nothing to resolve this issue but tell people to do things they’ve already done, or send them to a link for the marketplace that shuts down the whole app and restarts it. The only reason I am on Facebook is because I am the admin for not one, but two pages, one non profit and one business. The blatant disregard for loyal Facebook users not having full access to all features is appalling. The business page I run isn’t able to reach its full potential due to this issue. It’s almost as if no one is maintaining the site at all, Facebook has seriously gone down hill. So unfortunate!
literally get any other app - I wish I could give it 0 stars
Facebook has become my most hated and hard to navigate app. I get useless notifications every day when a random person posts in a group I forgot I was apart of, and to turn it off I have to go through 6 different screens and turn off 3 options to not get notified when something irrelevant happens on the app. The only reason I keep it is because I use it to log onto other applications and to remember birthdays, which it doesn’t always do. Why is there an option to get reminded of somebodies birthday that has already passed? This conglomerate of a company ruins everything it touches, and with each new app acquisition it continues to ruin others. Do not download this cesspool of an app, if you do your feed will be filed with an endless amount of fake news, bigotry, racism, sexism, and unchecked political ads that only cause more political divide. The dumbest people I’ve ever met have been on this app, it’s very clear from the comment sections of nearly every post, and I can’t help but wonder if it’s because they’ve spent too much time on this foul app.
atp34c3 - Our accounts are hacked by an ip address in Michigan
My husband and I have had our individual accounts for a pretty long time, and his account recently was hacked and he was completely kicked off of Facebook. And today, seeing that my own Facebook was a little glitchy, I looked at my login locations. It said I’m logged in, in Michigan (we’re located in mid MN). So, I logged out from that location, changed my password and went to work on getting his Facebook up and running for him again. I went to his login locations and he was logged in in Michigan also. So, I copied and compared the ip addresses, they were identical! Not only that but i looked at my login locations again and the IP address IS STILL CURRENTLY THERE AND I CANT GET IT LOGGED OUT!!! Not only that but I’m almost positive that I can’t get my husband’s account to confirm due to that same IP address! We sent his ID and everything and it will not budge!!
I did everything possible to get it working again and all the menus are played out. I’ve tried everything at least four or five times! I can get an actual person to help either!!
cheme75 - Too much stupid stuff
Constantly adding idiotic “enhancements” - a floating bar hovering toward but not at the flush bottom of a feed blocks text so makes reading a royal pita. The concept of a clean, easy to read display seems like a lost art. I hate the new stuff being forced down our throats with no option to enable or disable as desired. Take the gif icon, it’s a royal pita being inside the comment box, especially with the touch keyboards - hard to avoid with a finger tip when editing a comment. Come to the end of a line and try to edit it, it’s hard to avoid hitting the stupid thing. Make it optional! I will never ever use a gif in a comment. Plus I do not want to see them, so let us block gif comments. New bells and whistles are meaningless and continue to make FB the number 1 consumer of battery life. I do not use background refresh but it still horrible. I now keep it closed most of the time to try and limit it from sucking down my battery.
Kris-t-chaos - Trash
Facebook will soon be as unwanted and unused as Myspace with the bs they're doing. First off, what happened to being able to start off on most recent, why do I want to see old posts again from days ago. I like to see things in chronological order and I don't want to have to go to settings every time to do so. Second, why does there have to be a timestamp showing the last time in was on Facebook or messenger and why can't I hide the fact that I'm on there now? I don't always want everyone to know when I'm on or the last time I was on. And third, really?..with the ads mid video? What the hell is that about? We should all start writing the companies telling them that they will no longer recieve business unless they ask Facebook to stop advertising in the middle of a freaking video!!! That is just ridiculous! Can't believe what Facebook has turned into when it used to be about socializing, finding old friends and like people posts. It's no longer user friendly, just a cold out of touch app that doesn't care about what the people want anymore.
EpicRunning - Worst app in 10 years - a disaster of nonfunctionality
Search doesn't work at all, notifications list (within app, not push notifications) don't work at all, save function isn't there. All of these functions are gone. When I click red notification alert, the notification list doesn't come up at all and there's no way I've found to get around this. Search can literally never find a result, including search for friends' names Even a search for "Trump" found no results on FB. Also, "stories" feature, at top of newsfeed page, doesn't work - it's just empty rectangles! And whenever a foreign language is used in a post, it's not there on my screen (The tipoff it should be there is "Rate this translation").
All this is a disaster as it makes FB mostly unusable on my phone and I just want an older functional version again. I wonder if it's happening because I'm using an old iOS but they should have blocked it from downloading if that was a limitation. Now I mostly have to use my laptop for FB - this is the worst app problem I've ever had in 10 years.
DaisyHippie35 - App issues
I don’t get my notifications most of the time. People have to go out of the live feeds and come back in due to Facebook cutting sound off, or delaying the sound. Had to do it 6 times the other day. Is it because Facebook can’t place ads in people’s live feeds? I think so! Also, please stop pushing one political party of your choice on people via your ads, also a lot of your ads are scam or fake news. It would be nice to see all my friends posts in my feed Facebook allows people to see maybe 2 and ads. I want to see current posts. My timeline is usually a re-run from a week sometimes 2 weeks ago!
This spying on people via their devices is getting old. I was in a waiting room and a man was talking about His medical condition, and when I got home and opened Facebook my timeline was full of ads pertaining to the gentleman’s medical condition. I now have to turn my phone off in settings of that nature.
Try to fix your issues, instead of catering to those who want to invade your users privacy.
Dissatisfied Customer 808 - Still buggy and there seems to be even more ads
When a post is saved, the message stays on the screen WAY too long and sometimes doesn’t even disappear at all, forcing me to restart the app. Also, when reposting, why does each choice such as when selecting audience to post to, cause the location of the selection to move up and down the screen instead of staying in the same location? It forces you thumb to move all over the place, not easy when you’re holding the phone with one hand!
Also, there seem to be even MORE ads than ever before...this is so irritating, especially when these constantly appear while content from people you want to see disappears and you can’t find it again. This forces me to have to repost something I want to see later to myself (posting only to me) since the save feature is quirky and not easy to go back through, but then I get messages saying my account is temporarily blocked for posting TO MYSELF! Very irritating; fix your algorithms!
Bring Back Myspace - Not happy!!! I miss MYSPACE!!
I am constantly having to update the app....Literally every other day it tells me to update when I just updated it. Like seriously?! Half of my friends have 6 featured photos but I can only have 5 no matter how many times I update??? What gives?! You can’t do half the stuff you used to do. Most of my family and friends posts I don’t even get to see anymore because it won’t show them or either they are from days before! Some of my friends show up on my friends list and then others don’t when I know we are friends on it because I can search their name and there they are as friends. I only started using FB because everyone else was changing to it so to keep up with family I changed; but I’m really really starting to miss MYSPACE more and more now!! At least on there I could choose who appeared on my friends list as featured friends when my profile was being viewed. FB really needs to do better, doesn’t help the app freezes when watching videos either.....
Coolout - I'm just so tired of the notifications not working.
I'm sure it's been over a year now. I've updated a zillion times. Now I have to specifically "hide notification" or that same one will show FOREVER no matter how many times I click on it! And it *acts* like it's updating, so if I try to scroll all the way to the bottom (it only goes down about two screens' worth now) it "glitches" as though it's adding new notifications and I lose my place and it takes forever to get the notifications hidden and sometimes even then they still take up all the space in the notification list. I miss *everything*. People say they tag me in stuff, poke me, put stuff on my wall... I will never see it! I guess now we just wait til whatever the thing is that takes over from fb. All I want is something that works. It worked FINE before. I have no idea why people are still messing with it! 😠
Oh - and have I mentioned sometimes I *still* can't post pics in subthreads? It just plain won't open the pics for me to post so I have to start a whole new thread. What the heck?!
Stress-filled Person - Update crashed app
First of all, I really feel like the app doesn't need to update every two days.
Secondly, I just tried to update the app's latest update, and it has been failing to respond for five days. The app will not open no matter what I try, and I can't even uninstall it. I have tried turning my phone all the way off and then back on after a while (multiple times), and then when I tap on it, it just says "waiting...", and will not change unless I restart my phone, in which case it just dims the Facebook icon and then doesn't change unless I tap on it and it says "waiting..." again. I use this app when I don't have access to the computer, but I like the website better when I have my computer. I have had this app for quite a while, and even though updates usually take a while and are much too frequent, this is the first time I haven't been able to use the app after an update. Very annoying, especially since I can't just uninstall and reinstall or anything.
Faith . Smith - Kinda annoying
Okay so over all it’s a good app but it’s kind of annoying like why did you change the profile picture shape from square to circle I HATE THIS PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK! it cuts out most of the picture and you can barley move it to which parts you want to show this is frustrating! also I should be able to block and unblock people as I please not wait a certain amount of time to block people after unblocking that’s kind of dumb too and when I report someone for being offensive or rude I expect them to be removed immediately not wait until they offend multiples. these are my thoughts and opinions PLEASE FIX THIS NOW!!! I also keep getting blocked out of my account and ppl are reporting for things that I should definitely not be reported for and it’s locking me out of my account I have had to make a new account because of this only to be blocked by Facebook and I have been for 2 days now I HAVE NOT posted anything wrong at all this is very frustrating and annoying if this keeps happening I will delete the app and never use it again fix this NOW!!
mijaresg - bullying
I submitted a 2 star instead of 1 because I do love Facebook to see my friends & family & sharing the pictures. But I was in multiple mom & small shop groups & these ladies literally bully & harass other moms & I reported the page for bullying. There was no reason for such mean & awful behavior. We’re moms, ADULTS. These women are 30 & 40 years old being mean girls just because people have different opinions & different taste. Facebook got back with me & said “although we are aware there are some bullying content on this page, it does not break our Facebook rules/guidelines” ...I was furious. Does it take a person(s) to take their life due to bullying before a page is taken down?? I have a 0% bullying tolerance. & believe it should not be allowed AT ALL. Yes, people can have different opinions, but to put someone down over small shops/what you choose to do as a mom?? No. I’ve lost too many people to bullying & it should NOT be accepted.
Be better, Facebook. Bullying should never ever be okay. We are all human.
DrGizmore - Photo Fail!!!
I can do almost anything now on the Facebook app. I can look for a job, send and request money, buy movie tickets, see the weather, get recommendations, participate in town halls, see what’s happening and find local things to do, play games, find WiFi, discover people, participate in fundraisers, check in when there is a crisis, find nearby friends, buy and sell stuff, and watch videos. But I can’t see my photo albums? What is going on?
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
Out of all the updates, this one actually WORKS!!! I am very satisfied withe the improved performance and reliability of the update. It's great to see you can now like all comments including photo comments! That is a great way to acknowledge that you saw a comment! The only problem I have with this update is that it removed the ability to create a new album :( . That was a useful feature that has been removed! I would like to see added in a future update is the ability to share a post like you can on the desktop version and the ability to create albums again.
hunnibinnuh - This is a real honest yet petty review!!!!!
To be honest, I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS! This will be petty!
Facebook is a good (not great) tool for communicating, event planning, and marketing. However the lack of aesthetics is ridiculous. It seems they just don’t care how it flows to the user or how it looks especially on desktops. Also, I have tagged Facebook in numerous posts due to my lack of background colors (YES , BACKGROUND COLORS)! I am a simple person and nothing brings me more joy than decorating and pretty things. So when this feature became available for other users I’m friends with, I wasn’t sure how to utilize it at first. It wasn’t the easiest feature to locate. Once I finally figured it out, I noticed that while all my other friends had seasonal backgrounds, or really trendy and cute backgrounds. I barely had any with patterns or prints. No matter what I do, they are not available to me. I’m starting to become convinced it’s personal and honestly it’s making me pretty sad.
Once this is resolved I’m sure I’d enjoy this app and rate it better.
mmm.a.s - Convenient but somewhat annoying
I turn off everything I can to make sure Facebook doesn’t pull information for adds and whatever else. Honestly I think they get too much information about people and share it to openly with companies and advertisers. Even with these shut off, I still get ads for something I google searched. I have been having to constantly turn off notifications for random people. Every day the past several days. If I want notifications set for people, then I will set them! I don’t want to be notified every time someone I hardly talk to posts something.. I also am not very fond of the new app interface or the fact that I can’t scroll through my newsfeed to watch videos I come across anymore. I have to press on the video and open it all the way to continue watching the full video, and I have to watch ads all the time now. I honestly skip videos now when I see an ad pop up. I am not spending as much time on it anymore, which wasn’t much to begin with.
