Important feedback

Very bad technical service. There are a lot of technical issues while browsing.
Servers are very slow to transfer data even we are using best data plan with fastest network...
Especially message sending and delivering are very slow...and in calls also mostly occurring errors. And when we went offline still it showing online for 3 minutes even we removed the app from recent list....
You have to solve this problem immediately otherwise so many users are disappointed and will be uninstalled the app.
My dear fb staff you have to give best service and quality output to the public where we all a family together. It’s our responsibility to improve services.
