    I don't like Facebook to begin with I use it for keeping up with family. I wish the posts were in order and didn't reload automatically. And messanger shouldn't be a sperate app. Takes too much space for what it is. Also Marketplace keeps crashing on me has wrong location and won't let me change location or radius does this on more then one device. I've reported it Full Review

    News feed has turned to junk. It was bad enough when it started injecting new posts while scrolling through olderposts. Now it just keeps repeating the same 6 or so posts. And half of them are recurring ads. Please quit updating this app if you're only going to screw it up. May have to just swear off Facebook. Full Review

    Bug riddled, obnoxious. With each update it becomes more and more unstable. Almost any action can cause it to crash. I really don't need to have a of recommended friends every time I look at notifications nor do I need to be harassed constantly about adding featured pictures. So tired of having features and add-ons shoved in my face. Full Review

    If I could give a lower rating than 1 star, I would without thinking twice. This piece of garbage gets worst by the version. You need to do videos, text messages, all on separate apps and they all takes up so much space and memory! And this latest update keep cannot n installed properly, it makes your play store keep telling you to update and download the app over and over again. I really don't understand how a big company's only line of product is so badly develop that I think a bunch of college kids can do a better job. You should all be jobless for the sake of this company. Full Review

    Here is what annoys me with your app. I read articles that send me to a browser within your app. But when I back out of the article to either share or save the link I am automatically pushed back to the top of my newsfeed and then I would have to locate the article again by scrolling through the feed. Sometimes I can't even locate it anymore. Also, while going through my news feed there are repeated posts that I have already seen on the newsfeed. 😤 Full Review

    I think the app is broken. Ever since the last 2 updates, I only get to see like 5 to 10 posts in my news feed and then it keeps repeating endlessly. It makes the app practically unusable. Tried to reset my account, but apparently that's impossible. Fix please? Oh, and it's ridiculously slow. Using a Nexus 6P. Full Review

    All these updates and whats new only says improving reliability and speed, itd be nice to actually know whats being changed in the app each time we have to update it. Each time a 52mb update file and for what? The look of the news feed doesn't even have one consistent look to it, the updates can appear quite often but nothing really seems to change and the app has a bug of thinking that i always have 1 notification even though i don't.

    Gone backwards. Let us choose the default order. And not as screen overlayed on the order you want us to use. And now I can't see the notifications tab from the 'Most recent' screen. And now it ignores my 'open links externally' preference for some sites. Tapping on a friend's comment highlighted beneath a long thread doesn't take me to the comment. Full Review

    Why everytime clicking on comment opens keyboard automatically. Everytime to read comments first we needs to click back to close keyboard.Fed up of this. This app is Battery drainer. With every update its size increases.News feed in trending has become worse.You have to open a parricular posts in trending to view comments. We can't open comments of posts in trending by not opening particular post. So I need to open every post of particular trending topic to view comments. Full Review

    Why must this take so much space and grow and grow between this and messager it's just greedy and ever expanding. It sucks.and now it messed up my phone with last update. I uninstalled than tried to install and it won't. Thanks for nothing.I wish I could rate it lower. Every new update screws things up why can't you just leave it alone. Now it shuts off everytime I try to post a pic. Every other day 35 mb update.really? Full Review

    I just don't understand why and what are the updates that happen regularly and add 50 MB stored data to my phone. It's annoying. Restrict it. And make the app more stable as regards the way in which the app appears, yesterday it showed Friends Tab within Notifications Tab and today it was displayed separately next to News Feed Tab.

    Hey i've used FB for years but, uh, this morning my FB app had an update and now it keeps rebooting just after whenever i pressed the icon. I will really appreciate it if you'd fix it. Oh FYI, i just reset my phone to factory setup and tried to reinstall the app before so. So please dont tell me it has something to do with my phone (Sony Xperia Z1). Thanks guys! Full Review

    Very very good....BUT some complaints... 1. Even when i know a person n send him/her a friends request, FB stops me saying i should send to only the ones i know... How can FB stop me...? It is on the person to whom i have sent a request, to accept my request or not... It is he/she who knows me n not FB. 2. Have a user friendly way of downloading good videos from FB wall of friends, n it be saved in SD CARD. Full Review

    Notifications aren't working. I have to log into the mobile site or desktop site to see my notifications. This has been going on for days now. Comments under posts are jumbled and not showing in order, making it hard to follow the comment thread. I want the option to have Most Recent as the default time line (I don't use top posts, ever). And Most recent should show ALL posts not just the ones Facebook thinks I want to see. These relevance algorithms are trash. Full Review

    I am permanently deleting this app. The most recent updates have completely ruined the app. Any 5 star rating should be highly suspect. No one can possibly like what has happened to facebook. It is nearly all spyware, adware or manipulation ware if some sort. You have no control of anything on the site anymore. I'm done. Full Review

    Matthew Arredondo Published date: June 21, 2017

    Please stop having the app refreshed the news feed? Or add in scroll anchoring? So close for this app to be perfect. Will give 5 stars once that feature is added. Cause how else will people keep looking at the stuff they want without losing their place while reading? Full Review

    It always jolts back up when your trying to read stuff in your timeline also doesn't have a recent button like on the laptop which is definitely the better way to use Facebook, it's always says I have notifications when I don't, takes to long to load stuff, when I try to zoom in or look at a picture it freezes all in all there's always new updates but the complaints or suggestions never get listen to so that's why it's 1 star till this stuff starts getting fixed Full Review

    Buggy and cumbersome Takes way too much space on my device and requires me to force stop it constantly for freezes. The input detection as far as reacting and anything that requires swipes, scrolls, or hand movements is also buggy. The app didn't always have this many issues so I'm under the impression these issues are occuring because FB has made the app too bogged down with unnessecary and sometimes annoying features. Should have a "Facebook lite" for phones like mine. Full Review

    It's good, but uses too much storage space and ram. It shows whatever personal pictures you took in your profile, which can be accidentally posted. I was showing something to a friend and some personal pictures popped up which I didn't want to show. Who thinks of these useless features at Facebook? Full Review

It would just move and come pop back up after a couple minutes. Full Review

    Ever since yesterday's update, the app has become completely unstable on my phone. Up to this point, it was only minor annoyances, like not being able to view a full article, or my feed repeating itself after a handful of posts. But now, my phone displays a crash message every few minutes, even if the app is not open. Full Review

    Idk what the hell the developers are doing. I keep sending reports that it randomly jumps back to the menu. They keep releasing updates. The issue never gets fixed... And apparently I'm not the only one having the issue. It's always something with this app. Too worried about shoving the latest "feature" down our throats, and not enough emphasis on fixing bugs.

    Raymond Ellis Published date: June 22, 2017

    For starters, the app, even after the last several updates, refuses to open pictures on any buy and sell groups. I'm constantly drowning in videos, which I'm aware is partially because of my friends, but with the stacked order that Facebook has chosen to go with, rather than chronological order, it's also on their algorithms. Seriously, if you're going to implement market style areas in the app, fix them. Full Review

    I keep getting stupid 3 day old posts. Between these useless posts the "recommended for you" and adverts it is becoming increasingly hard to keep track of what my friends are up to. The app is getting worse by the update, sad... I really wanted to use it for what is was originally made for, silly me. Switched to 1 star, every other post is the same (including ads) I don't need to see the same post 4 times! Full Review

    Mukuka Mulenga Published date: June 22, 2017

    The app most of the time is fine. My only and major complaint is that you can't set a default view and when you do open up most recent feed and then go out of the app for more than maybe 30 seconds the entire feed refreshes and takes you back to the op. That along with not being able to access the notifications or basically anything else is frustrating. You can't even leave a link through a post open for too long before it snaps out out of the feed altogether. Full Review
