    Ever since i "updated" the app it's not showing me the emojis in its normal image and colors.. It's like this black & white copies of emojis and it sucks! It's supposed to be an upgrade not a downgrade! i tried to delete it and have the last update installed again but it's no use it's ruined forever thanks a lot.. I'm being generous with the 2 stars 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. 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. Rarely get notifications of comment replies either Full Review

    I have another account on my older hp and one on my tablet. The older account had been upgraded with few additional features which is awesome. But the one on the tablet, purchased recently, the facebook is different..it hasn't upgraded automatically or been upgraded by the app's maker organisation. The app on my hp, beginning a month or more ago, gives more options of sharing with individual friend's timeline, any friends or public group, messenger (individual or a number of individuals sent separately) and I wish very soon the options for external sharing like via twitter, whatsapp, wechat, instagram and many more will come around. So, why is the facebook on my tablet with same android ie 7.0 and above version as my hp (only upgraded from version 6 to 7.1.1 rather recently) doesn't have same features as the hp? I hope you could answer this.. Thank you. I love facebook. Full Review

    Though not a lover of Facebook, I appreciate how it can take over yer life!! So Ive limited it to as few friends as possible, but as many interests as can be easily followed without being overwhelmed The app itself is clean, well designed and easy to use with some fairly tight integration with Messenger and Instagram though both can be used independently. Well done Facebook, I might learn to love you more!! Full Review

    Would be nice if I could actually comment twice in a row without the second one taking 15 minutes to post. And it would be nice if I wouldn't have to close the app every time I wanted to load new comments on a thread. For a multi billion dollar company your app is actually a huge joke Full Review

    Is there any way that i can install the version prior to this new update?? This update is very slow it is taking forever to load pictures, just pictures and previews of vids. But videos works just fine when you play them. I have a very good internet comnection as I can play videos without lag. Full Review

    This app only gives you an illusion if managing your personal page. I was able to delete an old nickname, wasn't able to set a new one, decided to click around other options such as adding family or a high school or job, nothing happens when you do this. What's the point of adding those options and not allowing us to actually use them? Update- still can't edit nickname, this app is almost useless. Full Review

    Had it all of a month and it blocked me twice, forcing me to give government id to get back in the first time, and wouldnt let me get back in the second despite the dozens of codes it sent through mobile to let me back on. Blocked me for suspicious activity every time i used my browser instead of my mobile. Complete data mining and scummy. Never again, this is why i avoided facebook for so long despite the massive user population. Full Review

    The app keeps crashing. Also have up to 4 windows open for Facebook on my phone. It opens a new one every time I switch pages and it started a couple updates ago. It's extremely annoying to use this app now as if Facebook was even decent to begin with. Please get it together. You're supposed to be the most common social medium out there. Please act the part.

    I hate seeing notifications the most. Whenever I logout, I make sure I opened all of my notifs. But when I exit the app, there are still notifs. I hate seeing them. It makes me login once again just to check them when actually there's nothing nee. Check this out, just please.. Thank you anyway for the service! God bless facebook! 😊 Full Review

    Most recent update will only show me the same 4 posts from my news feed. Mobile and desktop sites with a browser display everything properly. Trying to show 'most recent' only shows a sad cloud icon with a tap to reload button. Combine that with the app listening in on conversations and targeting ads based on those conversations, and this is a good app to stay away from. Full Review

    I don't know what is going on but I log into Facebook this morning and all the threads where photos are posted in the comments are shrunken to the size of thumbnails and you can barely see them. I had not done any update and it just changed overnight. I decided to check for an update hoping it would fix it and it has not. This is not the first time our photos practically shrink into microscopic Clips in the comments. Please fix this. Full Review

    Still 1 star. I do not want to have a list of friends to easily share a post with. The stupid bar cuts off the bottom comment and I have to keep closing it to read the comment. I do not want to be asked about sharing photos. Make a way to disable or I am done with Facebook. Still have not fixed this issue either. When scrolling messages or comments it constantly asks if I want to copy them. Too sensitive or too quick to highlight text. Full Review

    I've switched over to the Pixel from iPhone and noticed quite a few things missing such as date tags on photos. Someone could have posted a photo 10 yrs ago but I'd have no idea. Among other things I think equality between apps should be fair. Full Review

    Karen Varas Gonzalez Published date: February 17, 2018

    Reasons for the 1 star... Problem #1, When I read an article then go back to comment, I lose the article because Facebook decided it was a good idea to scroll me up to the top of all their new F- ing stories. I'm unable to comment unless I remember who posted the article. Problem #2. Why can't I enlarge photos without them returning to original size immediately? Problem #3. The page will decide to refresh while I'm reading! Honestly I'm not enjoying my time on Facebook anymore. Do they even read these reviews? I'm not the only one complaining about these things?!?!!

    I work on an Asus Zen 10 tablet. All of a sudden I can no longer do a search within a group page. Working with multiple lost and found pet groups I often do a search of a name, location or breed of dog to find posts specific to my search. As of at least Sunday 2/11/2018 I can't do these searches on the app. If I want to do a search I have to go through Chrome. Another person who also works on a tablet doesn't have the search option anymore either. On the group pages you now see an info icon in the upper right corner. I am extremely disappointed!!!

    It is a useful tool for staying in contact or finding lost family and friends. I wish there was a more streamlined version. Or a version that could be personalized. As I find the app to be to jam packed with stuff (useful and useless) but not much along the lines of customization. Full Review

    Latest update for my Samsung won't allow me to respond to people's birthdays. Thanks Facebook for telling me, but then not working. From Nov 17: Huge problems, two here: Timeline Review. How do you get there???? Then that page doesn't scroll. Never notified about most of what's there, and I can't get to it. Notifications. Many Notifications won't take me to links, saying, "You must login first" which I am, that's where I clicked from! Then it offers me to "download Facebook for Android" which then shows 2 options: Open or Uninstall. Open takes me back where I started ... might try the UNINSTALL option next, that's sounding better all the time. Full Review

    Using all versions of this app. I would like you to bring back the old action when you press back key it would say "Do you want yo exit" because now it brings you to the top when you accidentally press it. It is very annoying to scroll down again to resume where you were at and of. Course you lose the topic you wanted you to see. Plz fix this key for god sake. Full Review

    This app now notifies me twice, for a notification. One when it first happens and then a second usually around 10 minutes later for the same notification. The second one will have the timestamp on from the initial notification so this is obviously a bug. Also I find it a bit crazy that Facebook developers have not figured out a way to continually load content after the source of internet has changed i.e. from Wi-Fi to Mobile Data. In such case, the app always needs to be stopped and restarted for it to work and this goes for MESSENGER too!! It's the only app I know of that can't handle changes of internet source without being restarted (and Messenger of course). This issue has been in existence for many years it ain't something new, why can't it be fixed? Full Review
