What's New in Version 75.0
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.
On the one hand, I like the various social reasons to enjoy Facebook, such as groups. Those are my favorite places to "haunt". I do like the live video feature, especially when you can share it in your groups. That's fun. I also enjoy being able to follow my favorite businesses & see what they have going on. On the other hand, there are some things that seriously irritate me. For one, you can't unhide pages or groups from your timeline. That is beyond annoying, especially when I thought I was going to be able to reverse it. For some reason, friend suggestions you X out of come back, but not stuff you hide. For another, I do seriously wish there was some sort of "history" feature (beyond My Activity) similar to what would a browser user would be able to see. Didn't like/comment/follow/whatever that photo you viewed? That thread you were reading? Well here's where you find it so it doesn't end up lost in cyber space. That would be great. Lastly, I am in the messenger separate app is just plain annoying. We have all sorts of random features i.e. videos & marketplace, but we can't read our messages?!? Oh & I loathe the fact that I cannot see "most recent" unless I jump through hoops to do it. It is beyond frustrating to see something & realize it was only pertinent yesterday.
The app works well and I use it all the time so I don't have to deal with my computer. That said, there are 3 pieces that really grind my gears.
1.) I have NEVER cared about top posts, but am stuck in a constant look of going into the app, enabling "most recent" and then scrolling through my feed. I'd love to have a setting that allows you to select one or the other as your main.
2.) The messenger app is completely separate and yet there is still the basic buddy list. Choose one or the other, make them the same app or separate them. I'm tired of accidentally sliding my finger and opening the messenger app (which takes time to load and screws up my flow).
3.) I don't know how long this has been going on, but it seems like it's more frequent over the past year or so. Almost every time I update all my basic settings are reset. The one that really drives me nuts is the "In-App Sound". This one seem to reset even just upon exiting and reopening the app. This really needs to be fixed as the sounds are annoying since they occur when performing almost all tasks of the app.
Again, overall the app works well, but there are these 3 items I'd love to see fixed or improved upon.
So Much Unnecessary Stuff
Why are there more unnecessary notifications now?? I don't care if a person who is a mutual friends with whoever I'm friends with liked and/or commented on the same post as I did. I don't care who goes live. I don't care about what I saved. What's with the live video section?? If I click on the 'I don't want to see this' tab, the next thing I don't want to see is 'You will see this less often' because it still comes up. I want to see it permanently gone! If you won't get rid of these, at least make a tab like you did for people who don't want to see any of their friends going live. Just slide the 'You recently saved this' notification, and then it should have the option of never seeing that stupid notification again. In fact, that should go for every single unnecessary notification you made if you refuse to get rid of them all. Why was the Messenger app created when we could have just messaged people in the app like we used to?? There is just so much stuff that was soo unnecessary for this app... What's the point of putting that 'People You May Know' tab on the news feed if we're just gonna click on the Friend Request page anyway...? ._. Please change these things (or at least these crazy notifications). It's so annoying!!! -_-
