Still getting worse
Video autoplay and almost random moves to top of stream, as well as hiding the stuff I was just trying to read is just plain annoying now.
If I could give this app a zero rating I would.
While the app was improving, its performance is once again degrading with each update. While text view is fine, pictures can take several minutes to open, and the app is completely unresponsive.
Still missing a link to the Pages View, and since FB isolated most pages to this view last year, it is becoming impossible to view some parts on news feeds.
FB's insistence on reseting preferences to TopStories rather than peoples chosen option of MostRecent every other week, or more often, is annoying to the Nth degree.
Plenty more changes and 'features' to complain about, and no way of saying no to he same advert for things your not interested in - variety would be nice, rather than the same advert for an app or page your not interested in, and never would be.
FB's insistence on logging every click and view on there servers as a live dynamic can only degrade performance further, and when your on a connection slower than normal causes yet more performance issues, even viewing data that has already been downloaded and cached on your device.
On the whole, use a browser, unless you want to put up with the crap.
Notifications & Freezes
It appears to me that the guys at FB have lost the plot on why they have so many users. They've lost where they came from.
I'd like to see all my friends posts please. Get rid of the follow thing and have the opposite, a flag for not following. Then people who add randoms for use I games etc can hit that.
And what's this crap that people who like my page don't see my posts? Over a thousand likes and only 30-40 people see a post. That's less than 5%! You're driving people and businesses elsewhere. And we will go. Even to Google+ as pointless as it is now, FB seems to want to help it work.
Why the continuous reloading of newsfeed? When I post, when I share, when I leave or renter the app. Don't you want me to see posts?
You're ruining the point of Facebook. If I didn't use FB for work, I would have deleted my account it's that annoying. So few pro's, so many cons...
Also, with same settings on iPad and iPhone, I get different news feeds. Why?
An app that is worthy for the real thing
People don't know what they are talking about.
Welcome to the facebook generation.
The app is perfect. Stop whining...
The only issue is the video autoplay on news feed and timeline. Not only is it annoying, but it's extremely harmful!!!
Think of the users with tight data plan. Autoplay is eating up their data and no way to stop it.
