Annoying app, but also essential.
Nothing special about the app, it's just an essential for most people. I've not experienced any glitches, but I do get annoyed with the constant updates. This app alone takes up the most space on my iPad out of every app I have and I've always wondered why.
I still hate the fact that you have to download the Messanger seperately to view your messages, what a pain in the A. I don't having to use two different apps for the something that used to work just fine in one. Anyway, I haven't experienced any bugs or gliches on my iPad so that's a plus. Oh, another gripe I have is how they changed the Trending Topics. I used to view the news on Facebook every morning while checking my newsfeed but it's now become a hassle because I have to hover over every title to see a summary of the article. Yes, that extra three seconds causes me to not even bother reading the topics anymore, it's such an inconvience. So work on that, because I don't think most people give a flying flip about how many people are talking about a topic as much as they do about knowing what they're actually going to be reading.
Photos look terrible
Update: The new trending news section on the right hand side is horrible. Either you just see a trending topic, no summary, or if there is a summary it sounds like it was written by Entertainment Tonight. Facebook took a major step backwards with that move. It just doesn't make any sense.
Very frustrated that Facebook compresses your photos when you upload them. I have some stunning shots that I wanted to share and once they're uploaded they become grainy, even though I'm using an HD camera. I have my Facebook settings set on 'upload HD' and that makes no difference. You would think with Facebook being the biggest social media platform they would have the ability to have your photos look just as nice as they do on your computer or camera roll. It's so disappointing to me because I'm really trying to showcase my photos on here and instead they look like any other photo taken on a low res camera. Please change this!
It seems to have been awhile since the last update. Here lately I have had a few frustration that have forced me to delete then reload the Facebook app. One of the issues was while watching a video on the app there was an alert that popped up on my phone that said I had won money and the only thing I could do was click "Ok". Not knowing where this alert came from I did not feel it was safe to click "Ok" and had to exit out of Facebook and delete the app. Again this happened three times and because of it I no longer watch videos through this app. The other issue that has been happening is this app will completely freeze not allowing me to do anything with it at all. This also forces me to delete the app. Needless to say I am no longer going to use this app because I am tired of deleting and reloading it. Time to find another way to get my daily dose of social media.
