warning!! links to contacts in your phone!
I downloaded this app after not being on Facebook for a couple of years once I did, I realized people that were showing up in my "people you may know section" were people that I knew but only did business with and never communicated with otherwise and did not have the same friends. this happened with about six different people, a couple of them I haven't done business with in several years and don't even live in the same town or state as them! it dawned on me that the only way Facebook would have known I even knew them was if FB had access to my contacts in my phone. I NEVER gave Facebook my phone number or clicked anything allowing them access to my contacts. it took a long time before I even allowed Facebook to access my photos on my phone so I could post a couple of them. I deleted the app and started using Facebook through Safari now however, suspiciously I am not able to log into my Facebook account using Safari on my phone. I think this must be a sneaky way for them to force me to download the Facebook app again. I just don't trust it, I feel like Facebook is taking advantage of people and invading their privacy. since I have used Facebook on my laptop I can only imagine what liberties they have taken there with invading my privacy.
You TOOK AWAY Clean screenshots ON Fb LIVE! :(
A LOT of people take screenshots during live video because video takers will show products, info, pictures etc up close so we can screenshot. BEFORE today you could get away from the cluttered live comments & floating everywhere "like" icons by going into landscape view. It was an AWESOME highly valued more peaceful & clean way to view & screenshot live videos. SUDDENLY ITS GONE & the landscape view is now 2x more cluttered than the regular view!! RESTORE the uncluttered, clean landscape view PLEASE! Screenshot-ting & a clean live view are 10x more valuable to users than making both views have same features. Awesome would be if we could hide fluttering icons &/or comments in all views, but until then please restore the clutter-free screen where we can take screenshots. Ps I stopped getting notifications 2 weeks after live came out. OBVIOUSLY being notified is the MOST CRUCIAL feature to be working with a LIVE video. iPhone 6s, Its been months & I've tried turning the feature on/off & every other fix that has worked for others, but NOTHING has worked. First 2 weeks it worked great. Please fix! Thank you, Molly
Nearly unusable since latest update
I'm an avid user of Facebook (daily, for multiple hours), and the majority of my usage takes place via this app. Until the latest update, all was well. Now, however, I can hardly even use the app. When I try to "Like" or "React" to a post, my like doesn't seem to happen. Sometimes I have to press four or more times just to get my like/reaction to register. It's even more likely to not show up if I choose a "Reaction" instead of the typical like. Liking comments causes the same problem. I have to press maybe three or four times for the like to actually happen. Another big issue is that posts don't update well. If I edit any post I've made, when I go to my timeline, the edited version will display for a split second before reverting to the original version. In addition, the app is slower to refresh. These problems happen whether I'm on data or my 25 MBPS wifi, so it's not a network error. Really looking forward to the resolution so that I may use Facebook again without frustration.
