What's New in Version 27.0
Thanks for using Facebook! To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store every 2 weeks. You can update the app automatically (without checking back here) by going to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Automatic Downloads and turning on Updates.
Every update of our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As other new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.
FB Messages vs Messenger
I would like to see most recent posts in sequential order in my news feed without having to scroll through a menu to select that option as a temporary measure. I would also like to be able to send messages through the FB app without having to close FB and open messenger. I do not use messenger because when I installed it when it was initially introduced it was not user friendly. Having FB close so that messenger can open then closing messenger so that FB will open is not very fluid. Staying in the same app to send messages was more efficient for me. Privacy issues are not why I do not use messenger only the fact that one app has to close so the other can open. It seems almost as fast fore to just open the web version one phone and access my messages that way so this is what I do.
MOST RECENT update
I generally don't do reviews but...with the last WONDERFUL update done t Facebook I now cannot load my most recent news feed. It is literally stuck on stories from yesterday, I've closed out of the app, I've deleted it and re-downloaded it, it still shows the same thing. And yes I know the difference of top stories/most recent. I'm generally on Facebook quiet a lot being as I'm almost 1,000 miles away from family and with conflicting schedules this is how we keep updated on one another, as I'm sure I'm not the only one. Anywho, it would be nice if this problem was fixed ASAP and not 2 weeks from the last update, being as there's an update every 2 weeks. I try and go on through safari and when I try to upload most recent stories it tell me to find and look up friends, but I can look at my top stories with out a problem. So whether it's the app that's having a problem or just Facebook in general, FIX IT please!
Another update, another fail
Seriously, for all your pathetic attempts at updates that simply only erase negative comments, could you actually fix something in it. It's bad enough you ignore all of the comments you receive, but you make the app worse with every update. To the point now that my news feed is a cluttered mess with things you think I want to read and they repeat in the feed anyway.
"Every update includes improvements for speed and reliability"...yea, not so much. There's nothing improved or faster, as usual per every update it's slower, worse, and buggier than the previous version...so how about finally addressing some of the issues this app has had for the past two years that the users continue to point out yet you developers continue to ignore. The one star rating I'm forced to give this is way beyond more than it deserves.
