Notifications and more...

Since a while ago I can’t see every notification posted. If I go to the tap, the notification disappears so I have to go directly to my profile, post, comment, like, etc. So, sometimes I don’t have enough time to see what was the notification exactly. Also, If I have a notification that a friend (because I’m following) posted something, the “post” looks empty so I can’t see it. Another point but not too important, I don’t like when you need to open the pictures completely to see it with all the quality. Plus the last 4 times that I was uploading photos from some events, with the captions and main message, the app reloaded so many times that I got exhausted and angry because everything got deleted before to be done and I had to start again many, many, many times. 😡

Another thing, I which I could have the option in the App Store to look only for the apps that I downloaded already and I don’t have it anymore. Long time ago was the option “Purchased”, but I can’t see it anymore. Had every app that you had before and you had to check the whole long list including all the apps that you have already installed. Will be good If you have an option where I can check for the old apps so I can download it again and no waste too much time. For some reasons I have to erase apps to download them again and It’s difficult to remember which exactly I had.



It is so annoying to have to update both this app and the messenger app every other week. I have very limited space on my phone and I’ve cut down everything I can to make storage without having to buy more space. But every other week I get a notification that I have to update the apps and every time I try to update them my phone tells me I don’t have enough space. I actually have to delete photos and videos of my kids to try and make room for these pointless updates. It’s incredibly obnoxious. If you actually seriously have some good solid updates and/or bug fixes then yeah, sure, shoot us an update. But having them every other week, finding superfluous things to update In the app just for the sake of a bi-weekly update, is obnoxious. If it weren’t for the fact that it’s the only way I have to see photos of my family members and their kids I would have deleted Facebook a long time ago. I update facebook and the messenger app far more frequently than I actually use them. Also what is up with the status box not being able to keep up with my typing? The cursor jumps around to the middle of the word to the previous word, then back to the very beginning of the text box, and then autocorrect tries to rectify all of those places that your cursor jumped around to and suddenly you have to retype the whole thing... SLOWLY. So done with Facebook.

There have been some privacy issues that I am getting tired of. One, why do people need to know if I am active? Why have the option for me to turn off my chat icon if it still shows me active. As someone said before, I would like to scroll through my news feed in peace. Two, why is it that if you have someone as you’re frond that they can call you on Facebook messenger. There are a lot of people that I do not directly talk to but I went to school with them or worked with them and we are friends on Facebook but I do not want them attempting to call me through messenger. Someone hacked one of my friends accounts and they called me at 217am. There should be an option on either who can call or to turn calling off altogether. As for regular issues news feeds are becoming annoying when they refresh on their own if I close my the app or my phone auto locks and I open it back up. I would like to continue where I left off. Another thing is why does it now show in order. I know there is a tab for that but it is like I have to go back and forth making sure my most recent is on and then that also goes away on its own and back to whatever you guys think is most relevant.
Facebook is great at making friends and family far away feel near but lately it has been annoying.
