    There is a bug in this app. When first installed it extends to the entire width of my tablet (Samsung Tab A), but then it shrinks to a narrow column. The column is so narrow it obcures the sides of many posts, so I need to click on them to read them. Not ok. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling this app several times, but the same thing keeps happening. Other reviews make it clear this is a common problem. The app is now uninstalled for good until this problem is fixed.

  2. Anita Rana-avatar

    aktie Don't know what's happening! For a few months, this app is not opening in my phone. It runs for a few minutes, then stops refreshing. It shows "Can't connect", "Tap to retry", where the data is on and other apps are running smoothly! Even the facebook lite has been working, and I have to use only lite now! Please do something about this. This is an Android set, Infinix, XOS.

  3. Krystal Morrow-avatar

    löschen Not happy what so ever. When I like or comment on posts, or even view comments, half the time I get a "sorry there's something wrong" or "the post you are trying to comment on has been removed" or something along those lines, when the post is still there and active. The app won't load photos have the time, and it's getting really frustrating as I run a business through Facebook!!!

    app This recent update has made it impossible for me to scroll my feed for more than 5 seconds. If I go into a comment section of click on a picture, it sends me right back to the very top of my feed. Every. Damn. Time. I haven't been on facebook for longer than 5 minutes in 3 days because it's impossible to get it to work now. Absolutely ridiculous and horrible, and I don't even know what this update was for!!

    messenger Intrusive ads on videos can be tolerable to some degree. On live streams though? Where you cankot pause and resume where you left off? Instead you get audio from the live stream muted whilst an annoying ad plays. Heck, I wouldn't mind if this were like the TV where there is allotted time for the show to play commercials, which does not interrupt the show itself, or if this were a normal video where you can just pause or resume where you left off.

    deaktivieren After many years of opening FB from chrome on my smartphone, I figure I would give their app another try when I got my new phone. Same things that drove me away are still going strong... inability to use Facebook when I want to use Facebook. Settings to silence notifications seem to not actually accomplish their objectives, and worse there's so many elements needing management on the platform I'd need to spend significant time adjusting things as they come up. Facebook is bloated, it's only getting worse, and their intrusion into the phone and my life is unwelcome. I like using it to stay in contact with people and groups, and that's it. Back to using the web version through Chrome. To no one's surprise, immediately the nags disappear.

  7. Eric Miller-avatar

    business manager This app, much like FB on the desktop, sucks. You can't see things tagged in unless you go on the computer, you get notifications hours to days late. And if you post a quote that's from a show or movie they delete it regardless. They're quick to block your stuff but won't do anything about things that are truly "offensive" especially when they're posted by right wingers. I use to log into FB daily, but why, it's all the same thing and never updates properly.b

Its randomly doing this off and on for the last week. My internet is working perfectly(I've tried connecting through phone internet and my houses wifi, which is not through cell company). Still same problem, wont let me log in and connect. It's just the facebook app, if I get my lap top out, it conects and does fine.

    marketplace Can you just make new platform. This one will never be bug free. Comments takes hours to find, from notification takes you not directly. Videos seems off with sounds. And yo u watch a video change to notifications tab and yoz can't go back. Its just too big, and to much updates. Just delete it and make a new platform already please, its been like 10 years

    namen ändern Works okay. The only complaint....that sound when someone is posting in a busy discussion. Who the hell thought that was a good idea?! Sounds like someone tongue-clicking and then swallowing while inhaling and snorting. I can't even read discussions with the app, because that sound is utterly disgusting; I must use a browser on a computer. Facebook, please fix this. Turning the volume down doesn't mute it. Only choice is to avoid discussion in the app.

  11. Jessica Thomas-avatar

    New update has made the app on phone completely unusable. Used to take 2 seconds to load, now takes around 5 minutes on my S10. Most of the time not at all, it just crashes. The new loading screen looks lovely but not lovely enough for me to stare at it for that long. Luckily the Facebook business pags app has saved my business as I struggle to get on the main app half the time.

  12. Riska Moon-avatar

    Support sucks! I have been unable to log in for several weeks now. I have tried everything! I have filled out the damn form, sent a message via a friend's account, etc. One star because I can't do zero until someone freaking help me solve this issue! Update. Still can't get the damn code or any assistance at all from this ridiculous company! If I could give a negative 10 rating I would. This is freaking ridiculous!

  13. Chris Tchaik-avatar

    I am genuinely and whole-heartedly tired of Facebook and the official app altogether. Not only it's extremely battery consuming but the lite version is so buggy that it's not worthy of consideration. I also get the exact same notification over and over again throughout the day which requires me to almost constantly to swipe them out. The so-called spam/hate speech filter is also out of control and goes haywire as seen through my kind loving friends.

    I'm tired of installing Facebook on my phone. Each time I do, anytime I have to restarty phone for whatever reason, it disappears from my phone. I have reinstalled so many times and it's so frustrating. I downloaded last night and this morning, its no more on my phone Now I'm being forced to manage with the lite version

  15. T Cruz-avatar

    I know I am not the only one having so many issues with fb lately. I don't get notifications on time, I had a bot post scam stuff using my acct which caused me to get booted off group WHILE my acct was temporarily deactivated while I mourn a loved one, sometimes video sounds still play while I'm no longer watching a video, at times have trouble uploading, then later it shows up like I posted the same thing 2x, it will tell me when I open my app as if I'm using fb for the 1st time to add friends

    I don't know what is going on with this app now, but since the last update it has been running my battery down more than ever. I check the battery consumption list and Facebook is at the top, it consumes more power than any other app I have, even uses more battery than my screen does. Please fix this!!

  17. Devon Hinojos-avatar

    Ok what's going on? Idk if it's Facebook or messenger but when I try to share something via messenger, it takes me directly to the "Switch Account" page of the messenger app. Why?? I only have ONE logged on this phone. I removed the only other one to try to fix the problem and it is still doing it. I tried a few other things and nothing is fixing it. Also, Facebook isn't showing me all of my notifications. I was tagged in something and was never notified.

  18. Jaza Domingo-avatar

    There's a bug which I can't share any posts with my friends via message. My account was logged in, same as my messenger. But when I click "Send in Messenger" the switching account was popped out while my account in Messenger was totally logged in. I tried to uninstall this then install again but nothing happened. Please fix this bug. Thanks!

    This app is very strange. I REALLY don't like the ads and a lot of times ill come across ads of something that I was just thinking about. I said THINKING about.... What in the Nanobots is goin on here? I understand my phone is listening to me but how does Facebook know what I'm thinking? For example, I was at work thinking about having pizza for dinner. Never once did i speak or text about it. Five minutes later a Domino's ad shows as I'm scrolling down. Also I'm locked out of my account...

  20. Pinky Parmar-avatar

    I used to love this app but after the new update, i hate this app. It's new facebook version i don't like it. When i opened my account in laptop on mozilla firefox and chrome it's showing new facebook. There is no "switch to classic facebook" option, whyyyyy, why did you vanished that option from my account. I am not liking it. It's a humble request pleaseeee pleaseee add switch to classic facebook option in my account otherwise i will be deleting my facebook account.

  21. Martha Brann-avatar

    It used to be a fun place to connect with family and friends...but now it's all ads...3-4 day old posts, and even after updates you have to scroll through old posts to see newer ones...just using facebook until something less political driven and more user friendly comes along. Not sure what is going on, but now I can't access my photo albums....I've reported this several timed and nothing....down one more star.

  22. J Willie-avatar

    Ever since the late June 2020 update, my Facebook dating is wonky. The page will flicker and then gray squares everywhere then loads. I've also noticed "take a break" messages no matter how long I wait. Everytime I like a user it comes up and then the page acts all wonky and flickers then the next person pops up. Uninstalling the app and reinstalling or cache clear doesn't work either. Why do you have to fix something that was never broke to begin with? Very disappointed.. Please find a fix.

  23. Amayaa-avatar

    I like old version apk than recently updated versions. I think they were way more beautiful & easy. Fonts, reaction buttons are beautiful & really colorful in Facebook lite than Facebook. I would also like if you guys make some changes in page settings. As a page admin , I don't feel comfortable with my page settings. For members, it's ok but for me, I'll say I don't feel good when I visit my own page. Make it simple. I don't really like resent updates of Facebook. Overall Good Job!

  24. Drrahz Wadi-avatar

    I hate the new update. I go on live in my group but I cant see all the comments , it doesn't appear on my live, so frustrating, I tried basic troubleshooting , restart uninstall even restart my modem I have fiber optic connection with 16mbps speed and only use 2 phones facebook only and the other one is just for music. Now I hate the update. Whats wrong then? Pls fix it.thanks

  25. MJ Morrison-avatar

    Notifications don't work right. They'll change to show I looked at them then when I go back to see other ones all the old ones are showing that I haven't looked at them. I know it's not a big deal but it's been like that for months and sometimes goes back to clearing them and showing I already looked at them but then it goes back with the next update. Just gets to be very annoying for me especially if I'm trying to pay attention to certain post and notifications.

  26. Johny Pallatt-avatar

    This app keeps getting worse and un usable now for me. So many features don't work and if they do they don't work correctly. I don't even have the create rooms feature. I believe most of the problems are not the app itself but with individuals accounts at FB end, especially the older accounts as I've been with FB since day one. When a new account is open everything works correctly. Come on FB fix it back. WHY doesn't FB ever read feedback or problem reports. They've never answered me once.

    I'm not sure what has happened to your app but I now can't get the thing to open on my phone. According to other reviews you've recently updated and its making the app buggy, I'm not even getting the app to open so can't tell at all, just a white screen with the blue and white F logo. Please fix

  28. Zayd Nouaitti-avatar

    At this point it really feels like the app will simply never be 100% bug free. I genuinely cannot think of a time when the app was perfectly running on one of my devices. There are problems with video player (sometimes the audio keeps playing even if I leave the video) and now I'm experiencing problems with lanching the app (it freezes at launch)

  29. Akshay Darji-avatar

    From last many days, I am facing an issue with watching video's, it is like when i started enjoying the video will automatically get closed and take me to the home page. This issue is not only for me but I have asked the same question to my friends and they are also facing such issue. So i thing this is the bug in last update which you need to resolve ASAP... And yes, i have update the latest version on my phone.. even I am facing this issue in my laptop also..just fyi...

  30. Matthew G-avatar

    I do not understand why you limit how many times you can change your profile cover that makes no sense whatsoever, it does not affect anyone else in any way shape or form. It was never an issue in the past, now I can't change my background no matter what I do. I'm a photographer so I change it on a regular basis, sometimes a couple times a day and now I'm blocked from changing anything? I will be deactivating my Facebook account. The social media app Vero is way better anyway.

  31. Meril Wilson-avatar

    What is happening to this app? A few weeks back everything was fine. Now it doesn't work at all. It doesn't open up. All i can see is a blank screen. Sometimes 3 hours after opening a notification the screen opens up. Then if i close it it doesnt work again. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. It worked fine for 1 day. Then started doing the same thing again.

  32. Ben White-avatar

    Groups not working correctly. Says interacting as my profile yet posts come through as my pages profile. Interactive choice has stopped showing who I'm interacting as after that. I've uninstalled the app and reloaded the whole app again from scratch. Can't upload new group photos for at least two of the groups I admin. I can do it from computer but not the Google pixel 3. Last downloaded the app new onto my phone tonight 28 June 2020.

  33. rohit chilkoti-avatar

    Useless aap and too late working , loading , picture , video, no good updated version only say for updates but not working properly it's bad to use this aap , I'm going to say all people's to don,t use this types of aap which only use your data but don't give any facilities , it's working speed is weak and redicilous ,use same more software or version to update it and to work fast and easily , that everyone can use it and have no network problem to use this aap and have fun and enjoy in using .

  34. Kaycee Sebeela-avatar

    This app used to be great but the updated one is terrible. Everytime I log in it doesn't want to refresh the page, I have uninstalled it a few times but the same things happen. Every time I want to login it gives me a blank page then I would have to uninstall it again

    App is almost always buggy and useless, nothing loads properly (except ads, big surprise there), wall routinely refreshes itself to the top while i am in the middle of reading something. It also really bothers me how often ads pop up for things I've spoken about in person but never mentioned online. Overall this is pure garbage but since its the only way to get in touch with most of the people I know..

  36. Danail Vasilev-avatar

    " This app may not be optimized for your device" The last update doesn't start at all, if this is your strategy to force people to buy newer and newer devices.. it sucks.. now I have to you some f*****g Lite version, that works only in portrait mode.. loads poor and there are some missing features, that people normally use (memories for instance ) ... Also.. facebook page runs sh***y in chrome.. so.. you destroyed it all everywhere.. I hope some of you " developers " get to read those reviews !

  37. Derek Cloutier-avatar

    Your 2 step verification process is broken and there's no way to generate a code to access the app to get to the suggested code generator with in the app. There is no technical support, no customer service, and I have a business that many veterans rely on for mental health support. I can not access my account and your form doesn't work, codes don't get sent and results in no action. Horrible. Update: Stay absolutely no response or support and my business is affected everyday.

  38. Bryan Cooper-avatar

    Please fix the bugs! I had trouble uploading a video today. I would get stuck cancelling and restarting the upload, each time somehow closing all my background apps in the meantime. Also, anytime I back out of an article or comment thread, the news feed jumps back to the top, losing my place in the news feed. Very frustrating.

  39. ja nice-avatar

    avoid updating too much and focus fixing the bugs only, bring back the old featured photos, no one likes it it stories whats the highlights for??? ive been a fan of facebook ecer since and i have no compliments except this, ik you guys are updating to see if it suits better the the old one but please hear me out, we like the how the old featured photos was made leave it there pls

  40. Ryan Moores-avatar

    App now broken, no longer launches. I guess I should be happy. Original review: So many bugs there's no point listing them, because Facebook don't acknowledge them. Made even worse by the fact Samsung preload the app, so it cannot be deleted, only disabled, but that isn't enough.

    The social media aspect is great but the marketplace is trash. Its horribly slow and freezes up constantly. And I waited to see if it was maybe just a bug but many updates later the obvious problem is still there. All my devices have had this issue over the past couple years so it has to be the app.

  42. Mark Blackmon-avatar

    Just curious as to why we can't see the captions for the pictures in the dating part of the app when matches share their Instagram photos or why there can't be captions for the photos in general...those are opportunities to show personality, allow the person to point out which one of their 5 friends in the photo she is, or provide explanations for various other things.

    They make lots of money on people using this app. They don't care about privacy. They provide zero customer support. They don't care about the user. My account was shut down for no apparent reason and I can't even speak with support about it. I read online that 40 to 50% of blocked accounts are done to innocent people. To top it off they don't delete your data after blocking you from your account. Oh, don't ever use FB as your login to other services. It is a pain if FB locks you out. This will also affect access to those services. I have over 12 years of memories logged on my account and now that is gone. This company has zero compassion. I would rate them negative stars if I could. I look forward to the day FB declines and something more customer focused is available.

    Horrible! -- The app no longer goes past the *NEW* presentational screen (where FB boasts with all of its *acquired* brands)... moreover, the app drains the phones's battery like crazy! Heck, It's not even actively opene !!! FB's engineers really did a good job of screwing the app this time... goog job, monkeys! Have a banana😑

    I will absolutely give you my experience on Google facebook. I have had no problem with it. My problem comes when another network gets unto my Google account. I can only believe they come through the back door. They just say facebook. It is during set up that something does not seen right. If you don't catch it, you lose friends, information and all your important things. Believe me when I say Google is the best. Stay with them and don't let Samsung or Galaxy. Hijack you from Google. ☆☆☆☆☆.

    Since this update 2 days ago, it is chewing up my battery, even after making changes in settings. Keep getting alert saying Facebook is draining battery and won't let my phone sleep. Restarting phone stops app running for a short time. Will uninstall if it keeps happening. Please fix. Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

    Bring back 'Discover' section in the app, while clicking three dot menu, above the profile section. In Discover, we could see posts, related to music, travel, cooking and many more. What was wrong with that feature? Why did you take it away from us????

  48. Dea Della Dorr-avatar

    This apps getting worse. Even after I installed the updates, it still didn't work. I didnt get any notifications, I cant view my own profile (it keeps telling me to reload the page) & my home is always blank (always asking me to "tap to retry" & it never works).

    It keeps you up-to-date with what people are posting about. It's great for watching videos and storing your media, the only downside to this app s that it reduces the picture quality when you upload. So as a photo fanatic that's a huge disappointment.

  50. Phillip Daniel-avatar

    This used to be a good app. Now, I would give it a negative Stars if I could. I start to look at a posting and all of a sudden the app erases it and then erases the previous posting, etc. If you can't fix these bugs, then just get rid of the app.

    It works now and then, but everytime they update it, it doesnt, then you wait on more patch updates, annoying. Dont fix it if it isn't broke. Go figure, there was an update, now market place options and filters aren't working, and market search results are super pathetic slim. No where near the real number of vehicles in your filtered options that are actually out there. Just doesn't work well.

  52. Lila May-avatar

    Update: The older review still stands true but now the number of ads I'm seeing is unbelievable. About every four posts on my time-line is an ad. And they are all irrelevant and all over the place. I also haven't changed my ad settings. Used to be fine but the last few months things won't load up or show up at all. I'm constantly having to force stop the app just to get it to kind of work better. My notifications rarely show up unless refreshed. I'd expect better from such a large company.

  53. Jon Russell-avatar

    The latest update has caused the app to stop working. I just get a white screen with a FB logo. I've tried killing it, deleting cached data, deleting all data. Nothing fixes the problem. The app sometimes works if I get a notification with a deep link to an article, but launching the app normally doesn't work anymore. I've had to switch back to web until it's fixed. I've tried emailing support but I'm not holding out much hope of ever getting a response:-)

    Suddenly view on tablet is the same width regardless of landscape or portrait view. Photos and memes are too big for the viewing area. To view you need to open them in another window. There is also suff missing to the left and right, such as birthdays. Marketplace is also too big for the screen, especially when viewing a single listing. The one thing you want to see, the price, is off of the screen.

  55. Rick Smith-avatar

    Facebook has become really bad since the first couple of years. A lot of fake news (multiple countries and languages), and if you want to like multiple pages within short period of time, you get capped, and there is no way to know how many likes is capped. There should be no cap at all, like Twitter or Instagram. Deleted and uninstalled.

  56. Daniel Ranoco-avatar

    The app is good but theres still problem you need to fix like for example i have been scam,my acc was scammed but i have gmail address on that acc and i can't retrieve it!!! Like,seriously i can't recover my acc even i have gmail on my side? You should fix this soon and i hope i have a reply with the developers

  57. Sidónio Sousa-avatar

    If you chose to see your timeline by "most recent" (as it should be!!!), as soon as you open a link and go back then it reloads... If you click on a video and it takes you to "Watch" go back and everything reloads so now you have to scroll to where you were before. It drives me nuts. I installed the Life version and it doesn't have this problem.

  58. Robin S-avatar

    And I did not think that they could make this worse, for my tablet, but they did. The gray bars now cut off news feed content. Unusable! Why did the latest release put a gray bar down the right side, so that I cannot read most posts? Might just uninstall and use my browser. Would save on the bloat of this app. Edit: now it has gray bars down both sides, so that I cannot read anything in the marketplace.

  59. Arno Schroyen-avatar

    Lately the feed doesn't display over the entire width of the screen anymore. Resulting in not seeing everything anymore. If I delete the app data it is normal again for a short while but then the issue comes back... I have this issue on my tablet but not my phone

  60. Ethan Coghlan-avatar

    Facebook marketplace and messenger were working fine until out of the blue, I was not allowed to contact sellers because I had to confirm my phone number. Everytime I try, however, it won't send me the code! It is infuriating. Don't waste your time, my high school stem team could design a better app.

  61. Derek Blaney-avatar

    Don't know what the hell you have done now but ever since you did the update I can't get on to my Facebook now!!! I try to log in it says an unexpected error occurred please try again!! I've been trying again for 5 days now and it's still doing the same!!? SORT IT OUT NOW!!! 🤬🤬

  62. Rosanne Joy-avatar

    I really wish they'd stop messing about with. I loved the old Facebook of a few years ago. But since then there have been two major rewrites of the site and it's very disconcerting. Especially as each time it has been made more complex and less simple to use and enjoy. The whole thing with stories and archives and timelines (I can never find mine!) is a big time waster. Message to Facebook management: Hey guys: If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!!

  63. Levi Leonard-avatar

    I thought y'all do auto updates, I've had to use the chrome FB for a while cause the app was horrible. Never refresh and notification are always on even though I've read them. Plus there should be an option to mark them all has read. Edited (09 Jan 2020) still haven't come back to me yet with the problems I am faced with. You want me to use your app but can't fix some interface problems. 26 June 2020 Still problem not resolved, so much for the big tech company that runs the universe.

    I have had fb for atleast 10 years. Same account with my real name. 4 days ago i was logged out & my account was disabled saying i was ineligible to have fb & to send id to confirm my identity so i sent an email with my id. I still have not received anything back from fb my account it still disabled & i can not start a new fb. Disappointing i have 10 years of memories i can not get now because my account is completely gone. Id love for fb to email me back. Anybody else with this issue?

  65. Raine Foster-avatar

    I am receiving notifications on the app but apparently, I'm not receiving any notifications from my friends or pages to notify outside of the app. It has lots of bugs in it. I tried uninstalling, clear storage, clear cache & everything was still on. Nothing! Very disappointed & hope this will be fixed.

  66. Alaura Davis-avatar

    Forgetting that it's social media and this filled with all things annoying. The application its self works well enough. Though, I gave it 1 star because: I have had the same account for 12 years. I log out of the app regularly because of current angry potlical rants filling my news feed. Well, I went to log in one day and it was I didn't have an account. I tried to reset password and it said that it could not prove that I was really me. I had to create a whole new Facebook, losing everything.

  67. Mahmood Amr-avatar

    I've been using Facebook since approximately 2003-2005 and it has always been my main social site but lately the Facebook app and site keeps getting worse, useful features keep getting removed like the calendar, the app keeps getting buggier and loads slower with so much useless stuff and getting more complicated with every update, so please try to focus more on stabilizing the app instead of changing or upgrading something that was already fine and perfectly working, thank you.

    Something wrong with Facebook Marketplace. I've noticed these past few days. Can't even search items there. Buttons are unresponsive. Not loading items for sale. Filter isn't working. I went here to check if there's an update because Facebook right now has issues. But nope. No update still. PLS. FIX. THE. MARKETPLACE. If you're going to add that on FB, make sure it WORKS. smh

    What happening with the app now sometimes it open and most of the times it doesn't it all happened after the last update I have send numerous send feed back messages along with data still no reply or rectification if you can't right give us the old stable version till then so that we can be in our account. I would have given you 5 star but tired and sick of waiting

  71. Cristy Fix-avatar

    The last few updates make Facebook not work well with tablets. Marketplace is impossible to navigate with the left side cutoff and prices non-existent. I like using my tablet, why does every app think the whole world only operates on a phone? The previous versions worked fine for phones but now don't work for tablets. What a pain.

  72. Megan McFeeter-avatar

    Marketplace never works! For A YEAR it has been freezing completely when I click on items, even after updates. I have no choice but to close down facebook completely, and go back into marketplace. I can look at maybe two or three things before it does it again. It's just marketplace. I would really like to be able to use it though. Marketplace is the main reason I use the app.

    Horrible for tablets..... (1) Facebook will not allow you to see anything if you turn your tablet sideways. (2) on my tablet they chop half the screen off you cannot read anything on Marketplace...... (3) I keep hoping that they will fix this problem that they created all of 2018 and early 2019 I had no issue now I have an issue I have constantly sent them emails and tried to get them to fix it and they will not even respond I'm deleting the app again.....

  74. Isaac-avatar

    I have one gripe with this app. Events. My friends and I use it FB for creating events as it's a great tool. What annoys me is the layout of Events in the app. For example my friend creates an event that I'm going to. If I want to access this event to check details I have to go through 4 sub menus: Home Menu Events Calender It just too far down I think. This is my friends event, its what gives FB the most value to me. It should be right on the home page, or at least a lot closer.

  75. Zoya Alexandra-avatar

    Facebook has plenty of glitches as is, but I recently created a facebook blog page and now all I get is trouble. My page says I have notifications when I don't, it glitches when posting, saying the post can't be uploaded. I rely on this page for publicity purposes and it's a hassle to even run my page! I cannot add pictures onto my posts on the blog page either, which causes me to have to take down the entire post and repost with the picture. Please, please fix this, Facebook.

    This is a very good app. It works very well. The only things I don't like about it are you have to update your number for any account you make now, back in the day you didn't need your number to verify your account and the second thing is FB pay. FB pay is a way for people to have your money stolen from you. I put my chase Bank info with the intension of making a FB event, donation type thing on FB, so I put my account info on there and low and behold, my money was gone

    I like using this app but I usually put a lot of videos in my story. As the video is longer it is cut into 26 seconds which I don't have a problem with but after sharing it once played thr audio is played way before its significant video. The difference is atleast 6 to 10 seconds. They are not in sync.

  79. A Google user-avatar

    Buggy and unreliable. The huge amount of ads should be providing enough revenue to fix it but clearly not. Reporting issues is pointless. Even basic functions don't work any more. April 2020. Newsfeed doesn't update. Notifications don't work. Reporting doesn't work. No point even having this app now. Newsfeed is nonsensical jumbled, cannot set to show most recent.

  80. A Google user-avatar

    With every update keeps getting slower... its not the network traffic because I constantly use it and is the same all the time. No wonder other "competitor" social platform are rising quickly. Its the update alone, and took 13.2min to download 75% of 42.36MB, then a message came up on the screen saying there was "a problem that needs fixing". I asked an app developer friend of mine, he said my phone is not the problen, neither my network... Its the developers fault.

  81. Colin Shaper-avatar

    Forced to waste bandwidth updating for no discernible reason before I can even try it. Latest 'update' seems to be an ad for a different app 20/7/19. Same non-info still showing June 2020. Facebook updates forced on me, even when auto update is off. Don't use the app anymore, but cannot uninstall it. Figured out how to stop it auto updating, but it still shoves notifications at me for the non-updates

    I don't know if this is just a problem with the Android version of this because I never seemed to experience these with my iPhone, but this app sucks now. If I am writing a comment and hit the home button it will throw me somewhere random and not save the comment when I go back to the thread. If I'm writing a comment and go back to the main thread to look at the article or the main comment it will put me up to the top and shuffle the feed and the thread will be gone. Also, 90% of ads are scams.

    Way too many issues lately! Shortcut bar keeps changing on its own and I have to reset my preferences daily, posts from friends loading days after they were originally posted, unable to see posts more than a few hours old, search fearure not working peoperly, group page posts not showing up. The list goes on. FB help is NO help. Uninstalling and reinstalling isn't a fix either! Ready to give up. It's become more trouble than it's worth! Please fix this app!

    Change is horrible! I use my tablet for viewing Facebook! It now appears in the center of the screen and you cannot see the whole picture without tapping on it.

    The app keeps freezing itself. I get the same newsfeed all day and old ones from past days. If I read something then for instance I get a message on WhatsApp, when I come back it takes me back to the top of the feed. Is really frustrating. Also when I am uploading a video or a post on my page, the message " finishing up", stays there for ever. What the heck is happening Mr Zuckerberg???

  86. dena murray-avatar

    It is IMPOSSIBLE to get back your account once a hacker has taken it over with their email. All the computer prompts lead you nowhere. You go through the process over and over and over again, hours upon hours spent, only to get to the end of the process and find out that for some UNKNOWN reason, the app won't authenticate you. THERE SHOULD BE PHONE CUSTOMER SERVICE! There isn't. And Zuckerberg could be employing hundreds of people at this time by adding this CRITICAL service!

    this is really disappointing. after i updated to the latest version, i was logged out of facebook and when i tried to log back in, this stupid two way authentication malfunction and i never received a login code. i already sent an ID because facebook ask me for it but still no response!

    Never wrote a review for the Facebook app until now, but I have been incredibly frustrated with it the past few days. App updated and now marketplace is completely broken. Freezes up, only shows the first few listings, and if I try to search it will show maybe 4 items while showing the loading icon. If it even allows me to click a listing, it will get stuck and can't go back, then have to force stop the app to restart. Rest of the app seems to work ok. Would love to see it fixed, very annoying.

On top of it the story feature doesnt work, and they severely limit what youre allowed to do. They deacticate your account, but its still up and running??? I think Facebook needs to fix their bugs abd start paying attention to their app! Not pkeased and am only giving you one star because google says i have to give you one.

    I only use Facebook for Marketplace, but the app is layed out horribly and difficult to use. It took me months to figure out how to search under the motorcycle category. The option was hidden under the keyboard... Then, when I try to search in that category it automatically searches everything, not just that category. Now, after the most recent update, when is search for anything it only shows four results and doesn't let me click on anything. I like Facebook Marketplace, but this app is trash

  96. Caleb ORegan-avatar

    Okay. Same ole stuff different day. This application is good so you can see family and friends. There life stories through pictures and posts. The layout of this app could be updated and then changed for an upgraded version of Facebook. You know like every few years or something. I like the facts there is a module that lets you send money to and from friends. This can be really useful. I'm still in the process of blocking some of these unwanted posts from different pages. Just pestie posts.

    I have been using the Facebook app for a few years and, for the most part it has been problem free. However since the latest update I am unable to access Facebook via the app, all i get is the Facebook logo on a white background for about 30 seconds after which it closes itself. The same issue also occurs with the Facebook messenger app. I am using a Samsung galaxy a51.

    I never get the updates that everyone else gets.. just like this new avatar. My fb updated 4 months ago and my task bar moved to the bottom of the screen.. this month when everyone elses tool bar moved to the bottom and they got an avatar option. Mine went back to the old way.

  99. Mike Perry-avatar

    Buggy. Constantly have to close the app, if that doesn't work force close, and if that doesn't work I have to clear data on the whole app. Marketplace isn't very good either; every time you change your search it opens up a whole new search (clears all filters) and to get back to the Facebook home screen you have to go back as many searches as you did.

    The newest update has made it to where nothing on my app is renewing itself. I'm having a hard time getting notifications, it just isnt giving me the notifications at all. I tried to log out and back in and it didnt fix anything sadly. Didnt happen last week at all.
