Ever since this latest and greatest update the other day I can no longer click on an event that I plan on going to in the future and have it sync directly to my iPhone 6 or my Google Calendars... It also wiped my calendars clean of all the near future events I had set up as well as deleting the events that I've already gone to that I like to leave on the calendars as past events.. I deleted both calendars as well as fb and reinstalled then twice to see if it was just a glitch when the installation process initially took place, but no such luck... I would really appreciate a quick fix for this or if someone knows if I'm maybe doing something wrong but really it doesn't take a genius to hit the "I'm going" button for an event that fb thinks you might be interested in, really though what's the point of fb keeping you informed of the going-on's in your town if they won't even allow you to store it in your calendar so you don't forget,.,please hurry and fix this as I rely on that sync for a lot of weekend things that I plan for my family and that's how I learn of entertainment I wouldn't have known about otherwise!
Too many issues
Video playback was fine, it was GREAT just the way it was. Don't fix something that isn't broken. The new interface for video playback is so stupid. There is no place to see how long the video is or to pause it or do anything. And now we have to swipe down to close out of videos because of we swipe up like we are used to the we scroll through a bunch or videos we may or may not care anything about. Also, I've had this issue for a LONG time: if I have Facebook open in the background but I'm trying to listen to music via headphones or my car or a Bluetooth speaker, it will play normally and then suddenly play very quietly. So then I have to close out of Facebook, ONLY Facebook, and suddenly my music will begin playing at normal volume again without fail. I can close out of 4 other apps and nothing happens but as soon as I close Facebook the volume shoots back up. I assume it has something to do with Facebook loading video playback while it's not open on my phone but this never used to happen until a few months ago.
notifications are ridiculously sporadic
Please fix the notifications. The badge on the app shows a certain number of notifications, but when I open the app, a different number of notifications shows up. Then when I click on the notifications, a completely different number of them are actually shown. And they don't show up in order (for example, I might have a notification from yesterday now show up until today, and it's way down on my list, as if it wasn't checked, when in fact it wasn't there yesterday). This has been an issue for some time now. I keep waiting for one of these updates to fix it, and it just hasn't happens. It's so frustrating!!! Please fix it!!
Truth be told, notifications are weird on the webpage also (A notification will pop up as if it just happened, but when you click on it, it says it's from 53 minutes ago, for example). Maybe the problems are related? Either way, it's annoying.
