What's New in Version 76.0
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.
Biggest user of battery
I like the app but it really kills my battery fast! I also hate that if I click on a post, when I go back, it takes me to the top of the page every time instead of back to where I was. This is very time consuming and makes it difficult to read the posts at the bottom of the page. I usually just give up. I only have so much time. Plus I hate waiting for everything to load. I have deleted the app before because I don't have enough storage space on my phone.
Also, today when I wanted to reinstall Facebook app on my iPhone it wouldn't show up in the search in the App Store. I had to go to Featured Apps and social media to find it. There must be something wrong with the App Store today.
Can't Open Post In Notifications
I'm not sure what the deal is with Facebook the past month or so. I can't even open most posts in my notifications menu. It's almost like it says, "Hey, we've got something to tell you but you don't get to know what it is." Shouldn't that just be a basic function of the Facebook app? Did all of the other crap that they're adding almost daily somehow screw up one of the most important and basic functions of the app? And how come I can't view my archived messages anymore? I just want to go back to the basics with it. I don't need all of the bells & whistles that they've added lately. I have zero use for 99% of them. I do like the enhanced privacy settings though. I'm strongly considering just ditching it altogether. It's starting to become its own universe.
The last few updates have been trash...
A few updates ago I was unable to click on my notifications, now to turn off notifications is an added inconvenience to move to the bottom of the screen in a question. Swiping out of a photo has become so sensitive and it takes almost three tries to do it and you have to wait for the photo to reset. We were introduced to swiping out of a photo not that long ago why screw it up so soon. Market place is a pain still I'm not sure why after all the complains it's still there. Can't rearrange photos in a post. And the app size has gotten huge. It's just getting out of control. My husband already deleted his app and I'm thinking of following his lead. The app causes more frustration than good.
