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

    I use both a Samsung s8 and the Moto z2 force and on both phones, whether I'm on wifi or data the videos on FB lag so badly. But when I pull up youtube fast and no buffering. It's been like this for me at least for almost 2 months and I don't know what the deal is. Of course I still use the app but it's gotten really annoying to watch any video on FB now.. Full Review

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

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

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

    Every update gets worse. Last update my notifications would scroll all the way to the bottom and I'd have to endlessly scroll all the way up just to click it or even see what it was. The update today. Horrible. WiFi or not nothing will load not even the little retry symbol with the tower when it's slow or half pages Just a blank white screen with the blue header. Go back to like 4 years ago. No extra stuff except for reactions and live videos Full Review

    Great app. The other reason I would rate a 3 star is because of the videos. When Facebook released the version where the videos play as you're scrolling, it worked great. Now I scroll past the video and it's still playing. I hit the home key. Not on Facebook anymore and the video still plays. I have to close the app completely. It's super frustrating Full Review

    I have received the upgrade every day this week from Facebook way too many secondly you can't unfollow a comment in your notification section anymore. Why? You had a good setup when everything was at the bottom but you got rid of it for some reason please make it one way and leave it alone Full Review

    Do we really need those annoying ads everytime we watch a video? I hate the layout in the comments section of a post. Half the screen is taken up with the write a comment box when sometimes I just want to look at the comments Full Review

    Latest update broke the notification panel. When you click the bell, it jumps to some date of it's choosing instead of going to your most recent notifications. You end up having to scroll for days to get to the top only to see notifications you've already reviewed. Full Review

    Crashes after liking pictures...when I like a photo the screen goes white, crashes the entire program. I can't comment on photos anymore without the same thing happening. This started about a week ago, so after a recent update. It's frustrating. So if I want to comment or like anything I have to go to a physical computer. Please find a fix. Full Review

    All the updates are all the same. App still crashes, is slow and the news feed reloads even if you're reading something interesting, then you have to look for it again and that could take some time. I think this bad programing... Full Review

    The latest update has screwed up playback of videos. Videos don't stop playing even when you scroll down to another video in the page or the feed and hence overlapping sounds exist. Please fix. Full Review

    Update is so bad it cured me if my facebook addiction on my phone. Can't edit or delete your responses to posts. Full of useless ads. Full of useless posts if who your friends have become friends with. Top part of screen blocked with menus. Whatever you do do not download this update. You will be sorry. Full Review

    Why do you guys don't listen? You refuse to fix this app. All you do is think up sucky layouts. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And instead you foul everything up. You make the like button animated when you press it, you add this really annoying symbol forcing you to go to landscape mode, nut to mention you added a speaker symbol on the side of the screen, and you add subtitles. Stop changing everything that dosen't need changing. I would be very happy if you change things back the way it was. Then fix the bugs on this app. Full Review

    Still can't unblock groups..... Pretty messed up feature and now it keeps saying that I'm posting things even though I posted whatever it was days ago. Update: now I can't back out of videos and go back to my news feed. I now have to exit completely out of the app and force close it so I can get back to my feed.... I will update when it is fixed. Even if it says the review is for an older version, as long as my review is up then it still has these problems. Update: videos now play sound even when you scroll past them.... Pretty annoying.

    My review got removed so here it goes again: New update is awful. 1) when you like a picture it instantly removes you from the screen and takes you back to news feed 2) too many ads 3) when you have notifications and click on them it doesn't take you to top if the page to new notifications and you have to scroll up Full Review

    Samantha fisher Published date: December 16, 2017

    This app keeps getting worse and worse with every update. It requires permissions it doesn't need - why does Facebook need my call records!?! And when I attempt to look at notifications it send me to notifications over a month ago and they have already been reviewed. Yes, I have the most recent update. No, I don't have a phone low on RAM. Becoming ridiculous to stay in touch with everyone. Full Review

    Get rid of "people you may know" it doesn't hide properly and it takes up too much space on my newsfeed. Why do all these suggested posts etc never hide properly? I'm beginning to think it's not just coincidence but rather it is deliberate. It is also very inaccurate because I do not know anyone it is recommending. This stupid nonsense has no reason to be clogging up my newsfeed. Get rid of the "did you know" feature it is stupid and pointless, nobody will ever use it, much like how nobody uses the "story" feature. Why can you no longer hide suggested items from market place, they fixed this and now they changed it back again Facebook is really starting to become pathetic because they are obsessed with not allowing us to hide all the suggested rubbish.
