What's New in Version 36.0
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.
Too many ads
Too many ads. Not enough control over who sees your posts. They've even made it difficult to set the audience for a post to specific members.
iPad version is buggy and frequently disappears from the screen.
Some admin functions cannot be accomplished on an iPad and can only be done on a PC.
The screen refreshes while viewing posts and it's difficult to get back to where you were as the order of everything changes.
Admins need to see posts in the order they were posted so we can review them - instead, every time a reply is made to a post, it's brought to the top.
Jan 5, 2014 update is bad - don't load it.
Facebook won't load since I applied the update and I see others have the same problem.
I see the update is back. Fooled me once, shame on you.... I'll wait a few days before I let you fool me again.
THE OBAMACARE TEAM DID THE CURRENT UPDATE FOR FACEBOOK !!!
DONT INSTALL THE NOVEMBER 8/9 UPDATE.
It won't load but screws up your current version & you'll need to access Facebook through Safari.
The app needs some work and it displays too many ads.
The biggest problem is that the news feed sort doesn't work. Old items are shown at the top. Some new items aren't shown at all. Many times items that are weeks old move to the top for no reason. Doesn't mater which option you use to sort - it's still wrong. Very annoying.
Buggy - often closes when going to a notification.
Listen to your users!
I use Facebook a lot. I've tolerated the incessant updates that you claim improve the experience of the app (most of them don't). Just when I get used to a format, it changes. For the worse. The new comments layout is awful. And inconsistent. When I access comments through notifications, they appear as they used to (yay). When I access comments off of a thread posted, it's this new huge thing that lets me know these are the COMMENTS and the likes are teeny tiny (boo). And the original post is hidden behind them. Also, when I used to tag my friends, I could backspace and just refer to them informally by their first name. Now I must refer to all of my friends and family by their full proper names, which makes me feel ridiculous. Calling my brother by his first, middle, and last name when I'm trying to tag him in a sarcastic funny post just doesn't have a good affect.
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.
