    The additional data downloaded is stored on the phone memory instead of on the SD card causing the "phone is running low on memory" message to constantly pop up. I have to clear data and relogin about 4 or 5 times a day. The separate app "messenger" is required for Facebook messages even though there is a fully functional messenger built into the Facebook app. This is no reason to require another app and double the amount of space required for messages Full Review

    Gone backwards. Let us choose the default order. And not as screen overlayed on the order you want us to use. And now I can't see the notifications tab from the 'Most recent' screen. And now it ignores my 'open links externally' preference for some sites. Tapping on a friend's comment highlighted beneath a long thread doesn't take me to the comment. Now not always getting notifications when a 'close friend' posts. Even prioritising a 'close friend' doesn't guarantee I'll see their posts in the news feed. Full Review

    Best Social media out there!. I just will love an update that would let me view who shares and views my videos and pictures. In addition, I would also love an update that can let me put a check mark to let people know that is my official page. Please, please this update! I hope I can hear from you. Moreover, why is it that in the Facebook app I can't see my videos while in the web I can? Also in the Facebook app you can't tag facebook pages and in the Web you can? Full Review

    I don't understand. Its like this app gets worse after every update. Updates are meant for improvements but older versions are even better. My app now freezes coupled with its slow speed and being unable to edit my posts and even closes while you are using it. This is poor. Full Review

    Every update you're lucky if they fix previous issues & don't create more. New issue: can't edit a comment. The edit screen comes up, but I can't move the cursor or type anything. If I hit the space bar the update button becomes active, but the comment never actually can change. Deleting this monstrosity from my phone once again. LG G3. Full Review

    Shortcut notifications feature is a fail, Galaxy J7. Always says there is at least 1 notification. Chasing it leads me to messenger with nothing new. I fear that app is pulling the old click bait scheme. If there were a built in, light weight messaging feature, I could understand getting notified here, but there is not. When will you being rolling out a notification to let me know that I am not currently viewing facebook? Full Review

    This app officially sucks! Whatever zuckerburg did to change what is shown in the feed that keeps what you want to see from you is screwed up. It should prove to be the end of this app except for his dumbass followers. If FB controllers don't like what you say or read, they will make your use of the app very frustrating. Full Review

    Hey Facebook, you know what's extremely annoying? Having to scroll up through hundreds of notifications from the past week just to be able to see your new notifications, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. YOU HAVE A NEW NOTIFICATION.... Remember how fb was about a year or 2 ago? Make it like that again, these new updates are trash. Full Review

    It's a good app. But it has a lot of bugs. Example: I've been tagged in videos that my sister and mother have shared, and it doesn't show up in my news feed or notifications, even if I go to their page it will not show up there either. I've reported this problem a few times and nothing has been fixed about it. I used to not have a problem with the gif button until i updated the app. now i can only post one gif and then it stops all together Full Review

    Feed refreshes way, way, way too much. If I click on an article, read it, and then go back, the feed has already refreshed and now I can't go back into the comments section. Allow for the user to manually control the refresh. I don't understand your logic here. It's horrible. Update: still doing it Full Review

    Constant random closures, cannot click on pictures reliably, decides to jump back to the top at random times. It's pretty much the core function of the app and you cannot get it right..... 5 months on. Still exactly the same. You inept idiots. 😂 Full Review

    Takes up too much space, needs to update too often and contains too many ads. It's also rather slow and I run into bugs quite often. It seems they didn't spend a lot of money creating this app. Full Review

    Switched from iPhone to Android. I don't know if these issues are related to that or not, but yeah. When I am loading comments on a post, when I get to the top i always swipe the whole section away because you swipe down to close it. But all I want to do is get to the top of the comments. It's pretty frustrating. Any time I leave the main feed, when I go back to it it's all the way back at the top. Also, with the most recent update, the app sometimes won't even load. It just shows a blue screen with a loading bar forever. Full Review

    I'm giving you one star because I have to, but facebook doesn't even deserve one. I keep getting locked out of my account. I've reported it. I've had to make probably 4 accounts in the last 3 weeks. All I know is they're reviewing my account for suspicious activity. I'm not making another account. But now I've lost all those contacts. It's been hell on facebook this month. I'm done. Full Review

    I used to really like facebook. I don't understand why Android has to deal with super pixelated videos whether I click on the HD option or not. Watching videos on Facebook is POINTLESS. I'm watching in 144p and on top of that, the middle of the video is bombarded by ads! Full Review

    The new update is a joke... why would you make the videos looks like you're watching it on YouTube when the older version was perfectly fine??? They're clearly two different apps for a reason. Will deffinetily be using Facebook much less because of this. Full Review

    A lot of us have pages years old, with a ton of posts. Our pages need tabs for memes, vids, pics, articles, etc. Where we can drag and drop so we can look up different categories fast and easy instead of having to scroll forever to find them. Can be an option setting for those who want or don't want the feature. Sure would make managing our pages a lot easier and be mutually beneficial. Full Review

    It hasnt been too bad however, the videos always have ads! I will always find something interesting that a friend has shared, and within 1min30secs a ad is shown. Such a waiste of time. I will be on instagram where there are no ads. I am on facebook maybe once a day because of this and on instagram an unstoppable amount because of the videos. Almost everyone i know has gotten instagram and i am so glad Full Review

    19/1/18. Latest updates seem to have removed the ability to edit any comments. Suggestions: 1. fix bugs before adding new features. 2. Test product thoroughly before release. 3. Make a tablet landscape mode version ××××××××××××× Last few updates have messed up facebook. With latest version, fb does not display correctly in landscape mode on a phone. Some comments on posts appear to come and go and comment count is incorrect. Timeline appears completely screwed. Notification of comments appear days after the comments have originally been made. Messenger notifications persist even after reading the message in the Messenger app. Full Review

    The app tries to be everything you need in a social media platform. Which is another way of saying its harder to navigate it due to the complexity. I hope search function can be improved to include specific filters for example by time or in the market place by price range. Full Review

    Rohan Chauhan Published date: January 19, 2018

    The apps developers have no concerns as the requests/complain of the users falls on deaf ears. The app hasn't improved and has so many issues. Infact, it has deteriorated. Instead of bringing new features to the app, focus on solving so many current issues faced by the app which keeps on multiplying after each update. The app still keeps on hanging/freezing up when i try scroll down on any facbook page. It still randomly quits the page or video in play and takes you to notification screen or some other screen sometimes. The comments still can't be edited. The videos downloaded offline are deleted on their own after few days. There is no option to view the time of the posts in time and date format instead of hours (for current day posts) There issues with reacting on live videos. The reaction bar keeps sliding to the right on the screen while tapping on reactions. Full Review
