Problem with Facebook Live on iPhone SE 2nd generation

I have updated to the latest iPhone software, 17.0.2, but I still have this issue. With the recent Facebook app update I am no longer able to start the video using the “Go Live” button on the screen in landscape (as opposed to portrait) for Facebook Live videos. To share the whole story, it did work once, but then the video failed after a minute due to wi-fi signal issues. Before and after that tiny success, the video does not start in landscape mode. It does start with no difficulty in portrait mode, but none of the videos I wish to create and share are in that mode. I have used the landscape mode for years now, with no difficulties like this. Something has been changed, and it is not good for the user of the app. I make multiple videos per week, all in landscape mode. My entire set up for publishing videos, including my tripod, is based on publishing in this mode.

If this was an intentional change, it is not appreciated. It is only taking away something which people use and want. It is not an improvement whatsoever. If it was accidental due to unexpected results, it needs to be fixed. Either way, please fix this issue. It may be just with iPhone SE 2nd generation devices. I am seeing other people with possibly other iPhone who do not have this issue.

The Ban, and loads of other issues.

Firstly, to get the big one out of the way. Several or at least one of “Meta’s” owners has been less than civil to say the least when it comes to having competition in the social media scene, you know like everyone else does whilst owning a business or platform. Rather than being original or not flat-out selling everyone’s personal information to stay on top, they do everything they can to remove their competitors from the equation entirely. We know what they’re doing, they know that we know, and it’s not subtle.

On top of all of that, I disliked Facebook and Meta before all of this anyways. Not only had they been proven to have sold everyone’s information on several occasions, but the entire platform is riddled with 40+ year olds who get upset when they see someone else enjoying their life, or existence for that matter. You know who i’m talking about (i’m not saying it’s everyone, but it is absolutely most of the app’s users). The UI is extremely counterintuitive, designed to purposely make anything that could result in their users not making Meta every penny they can get, extremely difficult to do (deleting your account for example, which has taken me more than half an hour on some occasions due to their lack of user support)

There are a lot more issues to talk about with this app, but these are the ones that speak to me the most and i have encountered personally

Brand New Account Instantly Disabled

Absolute garbage. I never used social media before as I hate every concept of it but I am starting a business and needed to set up a business page so I can reach my customer base where they are. I made a brand new account and not even a day later it was disabled. I tried to see why as I had not done a single thing on the account accept make it. All it told me was that my profile didn’t meet the community guidelines. Not sure what part of my legal name or authentic email didn’t match their guidelines but I disagreed with the decision obviously. Almost two days later, my account was enabled. I go to log into the account and the minute I do, it gets disabled again. Same reasoning. I disagree again. This time, they permanently disable my account. Marketing is vital for a new business and I was prepared to dump a bunch of money into Facebook adds but I won’t be sending them a red hot penny. For extra kicks, I tried to make another account with a different email and wouldn’t you know, they track the IP address of your devices so they disabled my new account because it was associated with IP address of the account they disabled for absolutely no reason. I would love to hear some feedback from any developers but considering the fact that they have a 2.3 rating at the time of writing this, I would assume they could care less about the people that run into problems with their product.
