What's New in Version 62.0
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.
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.
Facebook's mobile app is ok. It works pretty good but sometimes there's glitches in the matrix. The app has lots of features and is very bulky. My biggest grip is the lack of landscape even after countless updates. I don't understand why they can't add support for it.
My not such a big deal, but is annoying is the removal of messenger. Even though it's been long gone, I still miss it. I don't like being told to download more apps I'm very sure it won't be back but I still would like a basic version of it.
If for some reason you're not already a member, I might not recommend joining. Facebook has community standard that are very vague and hardly enforced. Offensive content doesn't always get removed even after complaints are reviewed.
