What's New in Version 36.0
Thanks for using Facebook! To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store every 2 weeks. You can update the app automatically (without checking back here) by going to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Automatic Downloads and turning on Updates.
Every update of our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As other new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.
"See less from" feature does not work. I still see every status update and liked posts from the people who I have selected to see less from. Top stories in newsfeed is made up of the people I interact with the least...the updates I want to see don't show on my newsfeed. My top stories consist of 2-3 day old posts.
Comments take a long time to load up and quite often I don't bother to wait.
The app seems to regularly lose internet connection despite being connected to strong wifi signal and being able to access internet on other apps and through safari.
The option to approve being added to a group would be helpful. I keep getting added to groups by friends hoping to win competitions. Facebook haven't even sent a notification to say I am part of this group. My employer is quite active on Facebook and I worry that I don't have control over this!
The ads on my newsfeed are ridiculous! What happened to ads from brands we trust? The ones appearing on my newsfeed are click bait headlines or scam weight loss methods. Scrolling through your newsfeed is not the experience it used to be. Come on Facebook, let the users decide what they want to see and stop dictating what you think we want.
The app still needs some performance improvements.
Update v36.0: The same issue still remains as below. Other than that, it's a good app.
Update v13.1: The app works perfectly nowadays, however the app loses one star because the events do not show who declined the event. I can see that on the desktop version but I cannot on the mobile version. I organise a lot of events on Facebook so seeing who declined the event is very important to me. I hope this feature gets added to the mobile app at some point.
No Push Notifications
Since this new update to version 36 I get no push notifications, I have signed out the app, turned off notifications and background refresh, uninstalled app and the reinstalled , signed in and turned everything back on, checked all the settings on iPad and iPhone but nothing. And also very slow updating feeds. Actually had a message back from Facebook asking me what issue is so maybe sort at next update as I had same issue since update to version 35.
