What's New in Version 73.0
Thanks for using Facebook! To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly.
Every update of our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.
Messenger Mandatory Thing
Alright, this app comes with its own set of messenger system. I like that, but obligating us to download another app for do the same thing is just not right! It just pisses me off. First you FACEBOOK PEOPLE came up with the idea of bringing full of junk news feeds about people commenting on things or somebody liked this and all. Frankly, we do not care what tey commented on or what tey clicked LIKE for. What we would care is what they intentionally posted or shared. And also yall should have an option for us to enable and unable a certain feed. For example, we should be able to unable the feeds about people liking things or commenting on things or even sharing or getting tagged. I may just want to see what the person posted; nothing more. A status or a pic. You even should make us able to unable the feed from status or a pic. I might be a person who only likes to see pictures that my friends posted; nothing else, not even just a status. If I could do that, that would be great. Or else all the things that you FB HQ people are doing are making us find it difficult to actually enjoy this site. You want to be left out like MySpace or Hi5? Because what you all are doing with your system is exactly how you get yourselves left out like them. Make it happen!
Can no longer open articles in safari😭😭
Update- every day I have to go to settings and turn off in-app sounds! I had a 5S and it was doing that and now I have a six and it's doing it!! Nearly every morning my Facebook is making a sound with everything I do again so I go to settings then I go to sounds and the in-app sound button is back on again.
One of my favorite Facebook features was being able to open in Safari in the top right-hand corner of an article. I could open an article in Safari and then put it in reader version so I could see it in larger print!! That feature has now been replaced with the share button. The top right-hand corner used to have several options when you tapped it now you can ONLY share. Why would you DOWNgrade to that when you're doing an UPdate? I really miss that and will not be using the Facebook app now because the articles are too small for me to read. Way way too much trouble to copy the website and open Safari and paste it and then put it in reader version! This is very unfortunate and then I hope you change it.
New update is pretty weird
Really my two biggest problems are the placement of the messenger icon and the friend request and suggestions list mixed with the notifications. The messenger app is just dumb to have next to the search bar since it disappears when you scroll down. Makes it harder for me to know when I got a message because I have to constantly be scrolling back up to see if I got a notification on the icon since I've turned my push notifications off. And then there's the friend request icon that disappeared. It's a hassle to have to click over and over again to see all my notifications. It's simpler to click the notifications icon and be able to scroll down all the notifications every time you go back to it. Not have to click on the icon and then click another button to see the rest of the notifications and do that repeatedly as I'm going down looking at all my notifications. 😑😡
