Slight inconveniences

Most of the problems I had with the app have been fixed either partially or completely. Notifications work fine, interface is nice, overall great functionality. The only remaining problem I have is that they added some new chat theme colors that are pretty neat (for 5 minutes at least), but have removed most of the less bright ones that didn’t hurt my eyes (at least the less saturated green, purple and blue I really liked are gone - please bring them back 😔), which I wish they hadn’t done.

Why you blocked my account?

Please create a customer support center. Since it seems you take control on personal information and/or intellectual property, you should offer people the possibility to contact you. There are thousands of abuses, where you block accounts with no reasoning. People should be able to clear things out and receive an explanation. I would really like to know why I have been blocked out by fb from my own account&mess, without the chance to erase all my photos, save my info, etc? If you do not want some people to have fb accounts, ok, but do not rob them from their stuff. Give them at least 24 hours to clear the info from the account! Why blocked me? The only thing that comes to mind is that I made a very civilized comment on a a vaccination post, and some very “correct&well intentioned” person had reported me?! Is the freedom of speech against fb politics?Sort this out, how many abusive reports do you get? Guys you ripped off my account used for 10 years, with no explanation. What is this?

Notifications language

Hi! Before the last update, when someone reacted to my message, I would receive a notification written in English (my phone language and also Facebook language).

After the last update, when someone reacts to my message, I get a notification written in Romanian (local language that I don’t have selected anywhere, not my phone, not on Facebook). Why do they appear in Romanian and how can we set it back to English. Thanks!!
