What's New in Version 48.0
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 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.
Without a doubt the worst app going!
For some reason facebook feels the need to do updates every 2 weeks which make no difference other than making it more annoying, there was nothing wrong with the old facebook a few years back and now to send messages we have to download another app to do that. Always have problems with it not opening comments, kicks me out, posts get mixed up constantly, I can have posts from 2 hours ago with posts from the previous day all mixed in,and now with the latest update I now can't comment on posts because of the serious lag and it kicks me off the app! please stop changing it otherwise people will eventually stop using it.
The Facebook app is useful, but it loads slowly and lags sometimes. I have found the constant bi-weekly updates as more pointless. There is no explanation as to what it added or changed. I find the need to have another app for messages that just use memory and battery as a pain. I recently removed the FB and FB Messenger apps. I have found my battery last longer even in Standby. I never used the FB app much anyway. The only thing I can assume is that the FB App works even when not given permission.
I am still using FB but with a different app now.
