Facebook-Holiday/New Year Update FAIL,

Facebook’s continued updates seemed to be offering more functionality. Simplified options for utilizing the platform. I was optimistic that Facebook was actually dedicated to the multi-faceted task of continuing to build-out a global effort to provide a secure social platform with comprehensive security algorithms. For the average citizen end-user, a user-friendly interface, evolving with each update to provide tools for easier account monitoring. Thoroughly vetted add-ons for secure, professional, personalized features for creative communication.
Facebook, the company that fought its way to become the dominant, essential tool of the digital age that every person could use to represent them, introduce them, to the world.
Billions upon billions of dollars changing hands, billions of people who continue to use the platform, and while a few things improved, so much effort goes into adding the newest, most creative, up-to-date bells and whistles.
That race to accommodate the superficial commercialized consumer is a horrendous failure. Facebook is not only on a perilous path operationally, instead of improved security, it has become a threat to every individual who uses it.
If the present trend continues. Facebook will be nothing more than a means of access for those of ill intent, those whom we currently feel protected from because we lock our doors and windows.

Get it together fb!

This app gets worse with every update! Every time I get a notification, I click on the notification to open it and.... nothing. Just the wheel of death! On top of the many other ongoing issues. I would like to see my friends posts, like alllll of them. If I didn’t want to see them I would unfollow or just unfriend them completely. Same with business posts I follow them because I want to see their posts. I do not want to see the same old ads over & over. I would love it if the sort by “most recent” feature actually worked! I want to see the most recent posts first and then go back chronologically from there. NOT: 1 hr ago, 5 minutes ago, just now, 3 days ago, 2 hrs ago, last week, etc that we are getting now! I don’t need to see something over and over again every time someone new comments on it, if I have not commented or followed the post obviously I have moved on. Also I would like to choose what I get notified about. I know we can choose some things but not everything, ie. I do not want to be notified every time someone goes “live” or adds to their story!
I love the idea of fb but you have users telling you all the improvements we want and we just get more things we didn’t ask for and half the time they don’t even work correctly.

Deeply Disappointed

Following the Cambridge Analytica fiasco I considered deleting my account, but decided against it as I use it too much for business. However, that decision was made for me after and my account of >10 years disappeared overnight. My account was hacked, some sort of rule violation occurred, and my account was subsequently disabled. At this point in my story I’m inconvenienced and a bit frustrated, but understanding of Facebook’s policies. As I jump through the requisite hoops to restore my account (verifying my name, contact info, identify, submitting evidence of a hack, and explaining my experience) I see for the first time the true nature of this company. I simply receive a boilerplate email saying my request to restore my account has been denied. There is no way to communicate with a human being, no phone number, no email, no chat support. For a company that prides itself on fostering an environment for open and reasonable communication their silence is deafening and the irony is ripe. Doing the right and decent thing appears to be too much to ask of Facebook. As it is now abundantly clear to me that Facebook’s actions reflect beliefs and values in automated decision making and blanket judgements by an isolated and powerful entity rather than transparency, care for their users/community members, and any sort of channel to truly interact and serve the people who they are obligated to.
