Woz

April 2022 - Still I have to keep updating the settings to change from dark to light setting. Why can’t the app keep the settings as I set it and stop keep reverting back to dark when I haven’t got it set to adjust itself? Please fix it.

Jan 2022 - why do I have to update the “dark” setting every single day - sometimes more than once a day. I don’t want to use the dark setting but FB is trying to force it on me. If I set to off why doesn’t it stay off? Dec 2019 - Please can you fix the app as it is not showing recent feeds when I select “most recent”. I can only see the most recent feeds amongst old feeds when I scroll through “news feeds”. As if the app wasn't annoying enough before when I had to keep re-selecting "most recent" to filter to what I want to see, now I don't have the option. I don't want to see posts from 27 hours ago mixed in with posts 10 seconds ago. Sort it out FB!! August 2018 - now it’s even worse! Even if you select “most recent” you get posts from over 24 hours ago! Come on Facebook, you are meant to be the benchmark for social networking, you should be improving with time, not declining!! November 2020 - why do I have to hunt through a long list to get to the most recent button? This should be the default! And please stop keep changing the order of the large buttons too!

Terrible

I was on Facebook for 15 years, to keep in touch with family when I moved to the other side of the country. I shared photos of my kids, holidays, and I joined some local groups to make some new friends. I also had my business page which is linked to my personal account. One day I wake up to find my account has been suspended, I try to appeal, as obviously I have never done anything other the than use facebook for it’s intended purpose, i.e, post family photos for my relatives to see and update my business page (I sell storage baskets, so nothing offensive!). Facebook wouldn’t let me appeal, and won’t speak to me at all. No one has answered any of my emails, nothing! Now my page is permanently disabled with no communication from Facebook as to why. Subsequently my business page has gone, effecting my sales & business. I tried to set up a new page, but that was also deleted . I haven’t been on Facebook for a few months now since it happened, and I’m definitely enjoying life more! It took me a while to adjust as I was on it A LOT! But since then, I’ve found new ways to advertise my business, which has driven much better success, and I keep in touch with family via watsap, and other means and I don’t have to put up with all the other toxicities that are imbedded in the Facebook App. My message to you all is DELETE FACEBOOK and don’t look back. You don’t need it, life is better without Facebook. 😊

Every app is just a glitchy mess

We have to reluctantly use Facebook for our business and therefore have Facebook (this app) and many of their other apps in their "suite" of business/personal apps. All of them are useless. They're full of bugs and have issues across all of them. This original app is now a complete mess as since the last update it no longer remembers if you want to use dark mode or not. As you can see from the reviews it's a common issue. As one of the largest tech companies in the world it beggars belief that they could be this inept when it comes to app functionality and design but they consistently introduce issues with updates. I can only assume that the focus of the updates is not to improve user experience but to harvest more data hence the latest update not only blinds me when I open it in its new forced light mode but now also shoves constant recommended posts down my throat throughout my freed. No I'm not interested in pizza ovens or shirts made from hemp! The lack of care and attention spent giving users a decent experience - hang on, I'd be happy at this point with something functional let alone decent - tells you all you need to know about whether they care less about the user experience over the the user data they're actually harvesting. Awful company, awful app and look forward to the day when they're no longer a thing
