Feature photos missing etc


I deleted all my feature photos to start them over where I wanted to put them and now the option is gone I really liked that and now I can’t use it. I don’t want to post a feature album that posts to my friends news feed! I want to change things on my profile with out the world knowing it! There should be a option if I want to change my profile picture or post a picture in a album to not post it in the newsfeed! The fosnapchat slide mode has got to go! It dosent work it freezes when you accidentally slide left. AND WHAT EVERY OTHER FACEBOOK USER HAS SAID AND BEGGED FOR SHOW EVERY SINGLE PERSONS POST IN ORDER! Or give us the setting to make our own set that way!!! I shouldn’t have to click “see in order” every time! I don’t want the forecast for the day from 3 days ago! Or Kroger’s 2 day weekend sale on Monday or the band I really wanted to see at a local bar playing on Saturday on Sunday! If there are certain people I want to see first like my kids and best friends I’ll set them to that! I hate having people come into work and say “did you see the picture I posted of my grandkid? no sally sue I didn’t because we don’t talk much on Facebook so Facebook chose not to show it to me!!!!!!! I wish someone would come up with a new site that wasn’t about keeping up with the Jones’s. Facebook was #1 for a reason I use to use Instagram more but not as much now because they are doing the same thing and now Snapchat guess we all need good old steady twitter



This app is really useless. Facebook made it so messy and complicated that it's constantly crashing. Every time you go to play a video, it just freezes up after a few seconds of watching. Comments don't load and/or take forever to load. My newsfeed should show ALL my friends' events and postings in the order that they are posted, not in the order that Facebook thinks I should view them. I don’t want to see posts from a week ago. I'm also really tired of the new camera feature that pops up and gets stuck on screen every time I accidentally swipe my finger a bit in the wrong direction. All these swiping actions need to go bye-bye. They ruin the whole Facebook experience because it's impossible to not accidentally swipe one way or the other and lose your place in what you were trying to view. If you turn your head to do something else for a few minutes and try to go back to reading your newsfeed, it has automatically returned to the beginning every time. Extremely annoying. It should stay in the position that I left off. And what moron decided that users need an entirely separate app to send messages? Facebook and Facebook Messenger should be integrated into one app. Also, stop with all the useless updates every other day. In conclusion, this app is a total mess. It looks like something a 3rd-grader with OCD designed. Get back to simplicity, so maybe the app can handle the basics, without crashing all the time.

Enough with the ‘Friends You May Know’ Nonsense

Rose Mairi

I haven’t been having any serious problems with this social media platform, but the only thing I’d say I do have a problem with is the ‘Friends You May Know’ part. I’m just curious why I’m being recommended people that are from the same town and area that most of my friends are, who don’t have mutual friends with me. I thought that was the whole point of this, anyway. Anyway, you guys need to mellow out on the ‘Friends You May Know’ thing, you’ve been going crazy lately with that, giving me a bunch of random people, or even the same, repetitive people, a lot. I’m actually so tired of seeing the recommendations that I just hide it every time it pops up in my notifications. Please fix this problem. UPDATE: Messenger has been recently acting odd. I can’t send pics to my friends because they don’t see it, however, I can, that is, until I leave the app and come back. When I return to the app, you can see the outline of where the pics are supposed to be, but they’re not there. However, they’ll be moved around in the chat into places I didn’t put them, and some of the pics are still visible, but only to me. I don’t know what’s going on, but this didn’t happen until just now. Please fix this problem.
