What's New in Version 27.0
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.
For those who ask "what has changed, why the updates?" the answer is simple : it allows FB to access any and ALL of the information you have posted since the last time they accessed your account!
Ever since FB floated itself as a limited company, it has been worse than useless. I wouldn't use it any longer if you paid me.
They change the privacy settings so regularly that photos one thinks are private are suddenly showing up in Google search, you can no longer prevent nutters from messaging you (hey, they can even pay for the privilege of going straight to your inbox rather than the 'other' box nowadays - great, more nutters,more rubbish messages, more trash). You cannot prevent others from annoying you - I have great concerns over anyone who has been in a domestic violence situation who may wish to ensure their information really IS kept private (no longer possible unless you use one of those programs which wipes FB's updates from your computer - it's like a 'washer' program) and now their abusive ex's can pay to stalk them. It's disgusting and shameless.
So, why do they update every two weeks when there are no apparent changes - to gather your information. That's why. doh!
It keeps getting worse and worse
If I could give 0 stars, I would. The app keeps crashing and kicking me out - especially when I click on links. also, pop ups when I click on links... What's that all about?! This doesn't happen with my other apps, so it's definitely a fault with this one.
The automatic refresh keeps taking me back to to the top of my news feed so I've got to scroll down and try to find what it was I was reading. Really poor form, Facebook. If you're going to insist on doing two week updates, at least make them updates that improve the app's performance! As it stands each update just makes the app more and more frustrating to use!
This is really annoying now. Me and my friend both really like this artist and they posted something and I said something hilarious and witty in the comments and tagged my friend in the comment. When she liked and replied to that comment I'm having to search through thousands of comments to find it and I couldn't find it, I really likes how in the previous update when you get a notification for this kind of thing, it would highlight and take you directly to the comment but now I can't see how amazing she thinks I am😂 please fix this ASAP thank you x
