    I hate the 6/21/17 update! It keeps crashing on me! And I can't click in pictures in posts with multiple pictures, instead it just freezes. Also, my notifications page isn't showing my latest notifications even though I just received a push notification for new ones. The app is a total mess now. I also don't like that the friend request tab is gone and is now lumped in with the notifications. And get the damn People You May Know out of the Notifications page! It was fine in the home feed. It is such a nuisance now. Grrr I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no improvement. Fix this Facebook! I've already sent you to reports already! Full Review

    My greatest regret with this is when I started updating this app. It was all good until I updated it. I tried to update it everytime in hope that the errors will be fixed but the more I update, the more it screws up. The chat list, video search and some other features disappeared, I can no longer open my activity log; when I scroll my newsfeed and open a link or post, the newsfeed automatically goes back to top when I click on "back" and I have to scroll down again to go back to where I left. It's very frustrating. Right now I prefer opening facebook through browser than this app. I hope this will be fixed soon. Full Review

    I don't like Facebook to begin with I use it for keeping up with family. I wish the posts were in order and didn't reload automatically. And messanger shouldn't be a sperate app. Takes too much space for what it is. Also Marketplace keeps crashing on me has wrong location and won't let me change location or radius does this on more then one device. I've reported it Full Review

    News feed has turned to junk. It was bad enough when it started injecting new posts while scrolling through olderposts. Now it just keeps repeating the same 6 or so posts. And half of them are recurring ads. Please quit updating this app if you're only going to screw it up. May have to just swear off Facebook. Full Review

    Bug riddled, obnoxious. With each update it becomes more and more unstable. Almost any action can cause it to crash. I really don't need to have a of recommended friends every time I look at notifications nor do I need to be harassed constantly about adding featured pictures. So tired of having features and add-ons shoved in my face. Full Review

    Another update and another frustration. Why create those updates at all? Lost a lot of good and useful features. Please fix, because it's not getting any better. Direct photos option is useless in my opinion. News feed is not working, can't see comments even though it says that there are numerous. Please reverse this to previous version or it's time for me to uninstall for good. Full Review

    If I could give a lower rating than 1 star, I would without thinking twice. This piece of garbage gets worst by the version. You need to do videos, text messages, all on separate apps and they all takes up so much space and memory! And this latest update keep cannot n installed properly, it makes your play store keep telling you to update and download the app over and over again. I really don't understand how a big company's only line of product is so badly develop that I think a bunch of college kids can do a better job. You should all be jobless for the sake of this company. Full Review

    The last couple updates have been the worst! When the notifications are working which is almost never anymore, it only goes back so far so I'm missing a ton of things that I don't want to miss. I don't know what happened to the notification part because it works rarely and then just stops showing any I open it because I know I have some and it will say just now on the top notification then the next one is from the last time it worked... I've uninstalled and reinstalled and it doesn't do any good? Please fix this is getting old! Not that you guys care I'm seeing post after post in the reviews about this and there hasn't been a fix yet!! Full Review

    Here is what annoys me with your app. I read articles that send me to a browser within your app. But when I back out of the article to either share or save the link I am automatically pushed back to the top of my newsfeed and then I would have to locate the article again by scrolling through the feed. Sometimes I can't even locate it anymore. Also, while going through my news feed there are repeated posts that I have already seen on the newsfeed. 😤 Full Review

    It is apparent you guys don't care about the people who use your platform. I don't know how many times we have to demand you put the most recent posts back in our main feed. But that isn't the concern of this. *EDIT* Why are you sending out new updates every three days? Especially when they do nothing but *EDIT* Break the app? Facebook used to be great but now it seems you would rather sell our information than make your app semi decent. Also why am I getting a notification for messenger when there is literally nothing there? I check every single tab in it yet when I back out half the time there is a random notification. Quite annoying. Also why is it all of a sudden you are capping how many notifications I can see? I have friends in different time zones all across the world that post when I am asleep and now I can't see them because all of sudden it caps it. Thing it is different every day, sometimes I can go back to four in the morning and other times I can only go back to seven. Either way that is between Four and Seven Hours of notifications I am missing. Full Review

    I think the app is broken. Ever since the last 2 updates, I only get to see like 5 to 10 posts in my news feed and then it keeps repeating endlessly. It makes the app practically unusable. Tried to reset my account, but apparently that's impossible. Fix please? Oh, and it's ridiculously slow. Using a Nexus 6P. Full Review

    All these updates and whats new only says improving reliability and speed, itd be nice to actually know whats being changed in the app each time we have to update it. Each time a 52mb update file and for what? The look of the news feed doesn't even have one consistent look to it, the updates can appear quite often but nothing really seems to change and the app has a bug of thinking that i always have 1 notification even though i don't.

    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. Full Review

    Why everytime clicking on comment opens keyboard automatically. Everytime to read comments first we needs to click back to close keyboard.Fed up of this. This app is Battery drainer. With every update its size increases.News feed in trending has become worse.You have to open a parricular posts in trending to view comments. We can't open comments of posts in trending by not opening particular post. So I need to open every post of particular trending topic to view comments. Full Review

I uninstalled than tried to install and it won't. Thanks for nothing.I wish I could rate it lower. Every new update screws things up why can't you just leave it alone. Now it shuts off everytime I try to post a pic. Every other day 35 mb update.really? Full Review

    Something is obviously wrong with my status update box on my very front page. Inside the box where it says "What's on your mind?" CONSTANTLY KEEPS FLASHING these SENTENCES "Write something..." then rolls up and says "Add a photo or video..." then rolls up and says "Start a live video..." It's been doing this for two weeks now. The constant flashing is annoying & distracts me while I'm trying to think about what to post in that box. My other Facebook friends doesn't do that, just mine so something is OBVIOUSLY WRONG. FIX IT & RESET IT BACK TO NORMAL Please to where it only says "What's on your mind?" I even reported this to Facebook and sent snap shots and no help to reset it back to normal. FIX IT Please. Thanks. Full Review

    Very very good....BUT some complaints... 1. Even when i know a person n send him/her a friends request, FB stops me saying i should send to only the ones i know... How can FB stop me...? It is on the person to whom i have sent a request, to accept my request or not... It is he/she who knows me n not FB. 2. Have a user friendly way of downloading good videos from FB wall of friends, n it be saved in SD CARD. Full Review

    Notifications aren't working. I have to log into the mobile site or desktop site to see my notifications. This has been going on for days now. Comments under posts are jumbled and not showing in order, making it hard to follow the comment thread. I want the option to have Most Recent as the default time line (I don't use top posts, ever). And Most recent should show ALL posts not just the ones Facebook thinks I want to see. These relevance algorithms are trash. Full Review

    I am permanently deleting this app. The most recent updates have completely ruined the app. Any 5 star rating should be highly suspect. No one can possibly like what has happened to facebook. It is nearly all spyware, adware or manipulation ware if some sort. You have no control of anything on the site anymore. I'm done. Full Review

    Facebook. Stop with the updates. You undated like a week ago. On my cell phone now in the groups I follow the album's are on the home screen of the page. But when I click on albums it's not showing all the files in that album. I'm in a lot of groups that sell things on Facebook and I can't see everything in the album. It was like this with 2 updates ago then it went back to normal and now it's happening again. Please put the album's back under the info button on the groups homepage so I can see everything in the album's. And enough with all the updates. Full Review

    It always jolts back up when your trying to read stuff in your timeline also doesn't have a recent button like on the laptop which is definitely the better way to use Facebook, it's always says I have notifications when I don't, takes to long to load stuff, when I try to zoom in or look at a picture it freezes all in all there's always new updates but the complaints or suggestions never get listen to so that's why it's 1 star till this stuff starts getting fixed Full Review

    Buggy and cumbersome Takes way too much space on my device and requires me to force stop it constantly for freezes. The input detection as far as reacting and anything that requires swipes, scrolls, or hand movements is also buggy. The app didn't always have this many issues so I'm under the impression these issues are occuring because FB has made the app too bogged down with unnessecary and sometimes annoying features. Should have a "Facebook lite" for phones like mine. Full Review
