What's New in Version 154.0
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.
This app is really useless. Facebook made it so messy and complicated that it's constantly crashing. Every time you go to play a video, it just freezes up after a few seconds of watching. Comments don't load and/or take forever to load. My newsfeed should show ALL my friends' events and postings in the order that they are posted, not in the order that Facebook thinks I should view them. I don’t want to see posts from a week ago. I'm also really tired of the new camera feature that pops up and gets stuck on screen every time I accidentally swipe my finger a bit in the wrong direction. All these swiping actions need to go bye-bye. They ruin the whole Facebook experience because it's impossible to not accidentally swipe one way or the other and lose your place in what you were trying to view. If you turn your head to do something else for a few minutes and try to go back to reading your newsfeed, it has automatically returned to the beginning every time. Extremely annoying. It should stay in the position that I left off. And what moron decided that users need an entirely separate app to send messages? Facebook and Facebook Messenger should be integrated into one app. Also, stop with all the useless updates every other day. In conclusion, this app is a total mess. It looks like something a 3rd-grader with OCD designed. Get back to simplicity, so maybe the app can handle the basics, without crashing all the time.
With a site so big glitches are expected, but I’m tired of going to most recent to see what my friends actually post just to see the same 3 friends’ posts. Typically I see 4 “new” posts (by New I mean ones I have yet to see not recent) then it shows me the highlights of my news feed or what people posted 3 weeks ago that I have yet to see. I have 60 or so friends, 10 don’t really use it, but I find myself only seeing posts from people I regularly talk to in messenger and that’s it. If I don’t talk to them in messenger Facebook doesn’t let me see their posts. I’ve even ensured I’m following them.
The next thing is the ads. It’s great Facebook is free and directs people to products they might enjoy, but when I say something is irrelevant why is it continuously shown? “Want some weight loss pills?” Nope I’m ok with being obese thanks. “How about diapers for a baby even though you don’t have one?” Nope. “Oh we noticed you enjoyed that video about makeup maybe you have acne.” Even if I did I wouldn’t care. Some of the ads are depressing, my husband and I can’t have children yet I’m constantly berated by ads about babies, even after I say hide ad, irrelevant, don’t show this again, or hide ads like this. It’s like showing an old person an ad for a funeral home. Can we please at least listen when people say “DON’T SHOW THIS!”
Not easy to join Facebook in 2018!
I’ve tried to sign up a few times this month but each time I do my account gets disabled within a few hours. Which is frustrating because I spent hours setting things up the way I want just to get locked out. It asks me to provide a selfie, which I do, then my account gets completely disabled! I submit an appeal via the online form provided and upload several government IDs. Today my account was turned back on for a few minutes but then it locked me out again asking for yet another selfie. I’ve read a lot of articles and blogs about many users having the same issue of being repeatedly locked out, asked to provide selfies, IDs, and then being disabled. ***There’s something seriously flawed with Facebook‘s automated security algorithms*** and they make it impossible to talk to an actual human employee. I’m literally just trying to sign up for an account. I need one for work. It’s a shame that Facebook controls how connected we are with the world. They have a complete monopoly and are now making it very difficult for people to join and keep their accounts.
