Stop sending me unrelated notifications and let your app in memory a little longer

It really gets on my nerves when an app keep sending me unrelated or irrelevant notifications to get me to keep using the app more often, like what do 'a random friend uploaded a photo', 'a random friend just went live' and 'a random friend posted a status' have anything to do with me?? Why do you keep sending me this type of notification when I've already disabled it?

Secondly, please keep your app running in the background and let it reside in the memory a little longer. It's so frustrating when the app refreshes and starts a new session and you lose your place, be it in an article you were reading or a comment thread.

Browsed Facebook for 10 minutes > found something worth reading > switched to another app > jumped back into Facebook 5 minutes later > the app refreshed and you had to scroll down and search for the content all over again. Yes there's a 'Save' feature but it's pretty pointless when you had to do important IRL stuff and forgot to save whatever content you were reading.

Ads and links.

Ads really ruin the experience while watching a video. I understand that video creators would like to earn money from video they posted, but putting them in the middle of the videos just ruin the experience. Every time when I am in the middle of the video and the ads comes in, I immediately leave the post and just move on, no matter how interesting that video is. So, in order for them to earn money, I suggest the ads just put below their caption, or particularly on their page timeline. Another problem about fb is the link. Nowadays when I receive a fb link from my friends on other platform and I click on the link, it just leads me to fb home page, or the last page I was at when I last used fb, it doesn’t directly go to the link I click. I did find another way to click into the link, which is to copy the link and paste it on safari and go. It’s very troublesome and I believe it’s bug to be fixed soon. I like using fb but I believe the user experience can be improved tremendously just by fixing the bugs I mentioned above.

Marketplace and Pages problem

Please fix the problem in marketplace! I can't change the location even the map are not showing but my internet are all fine. Also when I select a right radius for specific place (my address to be exact), the products that showing are not from the place I selected. Whether it's far from my place or nearby but not exactly to the place I selected. Please fix it!!

About page problem: The admins invited me to become one of their admins also in their Page, but I didn't receive any notifications that they invited me. I open the page settings in my account and it shows that I have 8pendings invitations but when I click the invitations button, there's no pages showing. Literally nothing! Those 8 pending invitations are nowhere to be found!

I googled everything to fix those problem and did All of the suggestions but it was no help at all. Even some of my friends told me what to do but still nothing happened, the problem is still there. I don't know what to do anymore and it's making me so frustrated! Please fix it.
