What's New in Version 62.0
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.
New update - no change?
Latest version, then: seems exactly the same as before.
It's really pointless leaving any feedback here isn't it? An update with no noticeable changes every fortnight then I post the same review. First day after the update shows a stream of one star reviews with the same concerns and these are then buried as we approach the next meaningless update. Weird. Anyway - here's my usual review that lists the same problems (and the same problems everyone has) every two weeks...
Latest news stream is worse than ever - totally out of sync with 'Most Recent' (the option everyone seems to want) and full of days old nonsense.
Separate Messenger app uses needless memory on my phone and I could really do without it.
The main app caches so much data I regularly need to delete it and reinstall when it approaches half a gig - my phone doesn't have the memory space to sustain this.
The fortnightly updates are a great wheeze - all the negative reviews get archived once a fortnight and so anyone reading them doesn't see the complaints about being forced to install Messenger, regular crashes and a stupid news feed system that makes it hard to use FB the way you want (ie 'Most Recent').
A cynical strategy from a cynical company. Shame users wishes aren't listened to... and are now archived once a fortnight to start afresh. This just isn't a company that seems to listen to it's user base.
Useless for business, too many errors
What can I say but it feels like a concerted effort to push business to a desktop, tagging on mobile is utterly useless I can't even tag my own business yet fine on desktop. And the like, comment, share as simply doesn't work. Shows as sharing as my page yet actually just shares it as me. And don't get me started on the "lack of news feed" I can open FB and my news feed still shows me the same set of posts it did 3 days ago yet go into settings, feeds, recent and there's sometimes 200 plus new posts from friends that FB decided I didn't want to see. You even get the option of setting most recent as your default feed bug it just ignores you and carrys on showing 3 day old irrelevant posts instead. 90% of my clients visiting FB are mobile users yet the mobile user experience has gone very very backwards and not forwards...
I had this app before along with messenger which goes with the Facebook app. After about 3 months of having it on my phone it started going onto my home page on its own every so often. It's not my phone as it doesn't do it with any other app. On the day of the latest update, I tried going on it and it wouldn't let me, it kept on going back onto my home screen on its own. Messenger makes me sign into the app everytime I go on it. I tried deleting the apps and downloading again. After at least 5 failed attempts it tried doing them 1 by 1. Wouldn't work. I deleted some of my other apps thinking it was my storage. Still wouldn't work. It says waiting for about 10 minutes. I then signed out and back into my Apple ID. Still won't work!!! HELP!!
