Another great update...just kidding
Well Facebook has done it again. Everytime I see there is an update I cringe wondering will this actually fix anything or mess up even more than before.
Well it's messed things up even more for us. Want to read a news article? Great the app will let you get 1/4 of the way through and then kick you completely out of the app, no worries though when you reopen Facebook you will be nowhere near that article you were watching.
How about watching a nice video, ya it'll let you start it sometimes, only sometimes as more than half the time you can't click on any links or videos, hell even a long post...anyways if you are able to click and open the video don't get to into it because this will also kick you out of the app, and surprise again when you reopen Facebook it's not where you left off at.
Add to this the fact that you have to tell it everytime you want the most recent not the most popular. Didn't we leave cliques behind in high school, not with Facebook app they'll only let you see the cool kids posts because everyone else is just a loser...I can pick my own friends Facebook and if I added them as a friend I actually want to see their posts thank you.
Oh and with all of these updates you still cannot do a simple copy and paste within the Facebook app.
There are other problems, but these are some of the big ones.
Good luck. I just suggest using Facebook page itself and save the headache of using this @#%! app.
Review of Facebook
Generally speaking I love Facebook! I can keep up with people I have not seen in years. However, I am not pleased with Facebook jumping to the conclusion that I am sending requests to people that I do not know! Ask me first before jumping to conclusions! I only send out requests to people I know. After about a month if I have not gotten a reply. I then rescind the invitation. If somebody doesn't want to be my friend, I will respect their wishes!
Same as above! I think it is rather rude of Facebook to once again send a warning about this when in fact I DO NOT send requests to people I DON'T KNOW!! Once in a great while I may hit a wrong button when reviewing suggestions! But that is usually because Facebook freezes! Also sometimes people don't reply right away! There were times it was as much as 3 weeks before some people accepted my requests! Otherwise, the App is Fabulous!
It's okay, but a few things need fixing...
My main problem right now is that both the "messenger" app and the Facebook app buzz and alert me when I have gotten a message. It's incredibly annoying. So while I'm typing to someone on messenger, when they reply I get one buzz and the Facebook app notifies me that I've gotten the same message. In a previous version, tapping "messages" down below took the user to the "messenger" app if it was installed. Additionally, if messenger was installed, Facebook didn't bother notifying the user if they received a message. I preferred that way - maybe others preferred a different way, so what I propose is having an easy to reach on/off switch somewhere, maybe within the "messages" section of the Facebook app the first time the updated app is open. If the issue has already been fixed, I apologize!
Other concerns would just be its tendency to run slow, freezing up, shutting down etc. - I've noticed less of these problems as of late, but maybe I'm just used to them! Thanks!
