What's New in Version 8.0
• A simple way to see and choose a photo album's audience
• An updated design that makes it easier to post and share on iPad
• Improvements for reliability and speed
Even after this update, the first and the third still stand - I'm unsure about the second.
First, comments that I've made on others' post aren't refreshing past mine. I'll get the notification, tap it, and no new content. Meanwhile I'm getting 70 emails where I can read these new comments, yet none of them show up on the app. This continues when I manually close the app and reopen it and also when I power down and restart my phone - shows the same last comment as before.
I also hate the news feed. I want to be able to scroll through my friends' posts, click on a link, and then come back WHERE I LEFT OFF instead in some random place like it's doing now. How hard is that really? Having posts appear in the order they're posted without Facebook deciding for me what I'd like to see would be nice too, but this may be bordering on having satisfied consumers and we all know they can't put us first.
It's also incredibly difficult to manage group settings. Is it that much to ask that all of the settings be accessible from the app? I'm not near my computer all that frequently throughout the day and moderating the group is extremely difficult from my phone. I thought the app was about accessibility?
And a general comment - it's ridiculous that you can't add non-friends to a closed group, iPhone or computer. I'd really appreciate that this be changed.
Do this to fully log out...and review
Okay, in order to fully log out, you need to go to your settings and in your Facebook app, remove your password. Or, just use safari to go to Facebook and not use the app altogether.
I wish the posts would remain in chronological order. I don't need posts with new comments popping back in the feed. If I commented, I will get a notification to go check out new comments. I also wish Facebook wouldn't decide for me which posts I want to see. If my friends posts 4 statuses in a row, show me all 4! Not just one! And stop leaving people out of my feed. Some of my friends think I'm rude cause I never comment or like any of their posts...well kinda hard if I NEVER SEE THEM! I also would like to see all "25" pics posted to an album, not just the first "8" without clicking on the album name. (Numbers just hypothetical, but you get my point, you're scrolling through the pics and they stop and you're like, I didn't look at "25" pics yet...)
Overall, it's a good app; time waster, status update conclusion jumper, spying on your frienimies, relationship destroyer, you know, the norm. Lol.
Can't fully log off
I've come to deal with all the little quirks and work around them, except I cannot fully log out of FB with the app. When I hit 'log out' it goes to the blue home screen and says 'logged in as...so and so'. If I tap continue it goes right back into the app with out asking for my password. If I tap 'not you' it asks for my email and password....which it should. But if I lock my phone or go to another app or go to my phones home screen and THEN go back to FB it goes back to saying 'logged in as....so and so'. Until I can figure this out, I have to delete the FB app from my phone when I am done using it and then go the App Store and re-download it when I want to get back on. My husbands phone has done this ever since he got the app. Mine just started doing this about 2 weeks ago. Please fix immediately because I like the app more than going to safari and getting on FB that way. Thank you!
