Issues in photos section

Hello, I’m a Tester and I would like to give you some feedback about some functionalities that aren’t working properly both on phone and desktop (browser too) app. 1) in phone app, if you navigate to the ‘Photos’ of a friend, then doesn’t appear the photos that his is tagged in. While if you go from desktop app to the ‘Photos’ of the same friend, then the photos where his is tagged in are displayed properly. I think that it should be worked for the mobile application as well. 2) If I hide a photo of mine, on the desktop app, where there are tagged people on it and was exist on the profile ’Photos’ preview box (from inspect I saw that you name it as a div class=x1yztbdb), then If I unhide it, it is not be visible on this ‘Photos’ preview box (especially for the person that uploaded the image), while on mobile app it is visible properly. I think that it should be worked for the desktop (browser) app as well.

Hope to help. It will be great if you fix the mentioned issues. Thank you in advance :)

Huge issues with loading times and refresh posts

After the update the loading time is more than 30-40 seconds to show the first post and another 15-20 seconds to load stories

From today (July 17th) it takes even longer to load the first post and more than a minute (if you are lucky) for stories and the rest

Notifications comes after an hour and when you go to check them they are not still updated for at least half an hour more

Problem between Facebook and messenger

In my iPhone 11 Pro there is no INTERNAL cooperation between Facebook and messenger. Specifically, the messenger icon at the top right of the Facebook page does not display any new messages. Displays only when the application is initially logged in, but the readout message is still displayed after reading it. Then sometimes the indicator goes off but does not reappear when there are new messages. As a result, I do not have an immediate update and I have to log in and out of the applications in order to find out if there are any new events. This has been happening for a long time (almost a year) and despite my reports I have made through the fb application, the problem has not been solved. I am very disappointed
