What's New in Version 44.0
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.
Why do you hate small businesses?
I have been blocked from posting adverts on the buy and sell pages, and all my adverts have been deleted. I am a small business trying to reach out to new customers. Not once have I received a complaint about my adverts because I am putting them where they NEED TO BE, and I have had many people benefit from the adverts by finding the service they are after.
You already made it so that even the people who follow and like your page don't see all the posts, but now you've even taken away our way of reaching out to new customers through marketing. All because you want to make small businesses pay for you to 'boost' certain posts. Even though I have paid hundreds for this and all boosted posts no longer show up on my timeline, and not one person is responding to my emails about this in the 'support centre'.
Do yourself a favour, don't bother downloading this all. Facebook is just a way for the richest of people to money-grab from people who are working hard to make a living. Disgusting.
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.
As a social network Facebook has to be the best in the world. As a popular app this has to be among the worst. I have never seen such a resource hogging phone application. People complain about the battery life on the iPhone which is usually a complaint easily sorted by deleting this app.
Facebook admitted that the had an issue with their app being power hungry and an update improved the issue but since then the app has slipped backwards again.
If you want a dead battery get this app. If you want a usable phone delete it, you never know you may improve your productivity!
