What's New in Version 36.1
Constant crashing has been mentioned but I will as well. The "trending" stuff needs to stop -- I don't care what people are posting on Twitter or how many times Cecil the Lion is mentioned. If people WANT to know what is "trending" then give them an option to see that or give an option not to see it. Likewise, with Messenger, I am not using it. I don't want or need another texting program that disturbs me. So if Facebook insists on a separate program, then they need to block people from sending Messenger messages to me -- someone trying to send me a message wouldn't be able to select my name.
I called this review "forced society" because FB seems to think that one size and one style fits all. I am not a Millennial. I am a 50 Something working parent who uses the app to keep up with friends who I don't have time to see or to look for a recipe or a knitting pattern. I don't want constant "trending" videos about Bruce Jenner or a lion. I don't want to know every time someone likes a picture. I absolutely do not want to quickly sign on through my phone and see 17 messenger messages that I won't read. Let each of us set how we want Facebook to work best for us.
No more "top stories"
I do not use this app anymore and haven't since fb made the "top stories" the default mode. I don't want to see posts from days ago, I want to see most recent and in order of post. I sincerely doubt anyone else like this either but you push out meaningless updates week after week. The only reason I can see you are forcing this on us is to cram more ads in our news feed. If you tried this on the web version, I am certain you would be history in a week. At least give us a real option of permanent choice on how we view our feed. Then we would all be happy. I had a choice to buy an IPhone but you offer no choice for your product. The splitting off of the messenger app was also a bad idea as I can see by the ratings.
Why didn't you leave it alone?
I was just fine with the way the app was before, especially since I could have the news feed set to Most Recent without having to go into a completely different area. Now everything is so messed up that I often find myself exiting out of the Most Recent feed since I'm used to backing out of posts that I read by hitting that arrow up in the corner. Just put it back the way it was before for iPad and stop thinking that you're doing us a favor.
