Buggiest app on my iPad

Let’s face it, if you use social media Facebook is a must have to stay connected. However the Facebook app is a complete bug filled app that only seems to break more with every update. I’ve been waiting for years for it to work right and yet I always know when an update comes, because something you use regularly will break guaranteed. If by some miracle it gets fixed in the bi-weekly update, I promise you something else you use will be hindered in the next version.

Sorting has always been a mystery to me. I understand sponsored posts and ads as something as to pay for the backend but I never understand why something as simple as seeing recent posts just doesn’t happen. Most recent is a joke...it just never works. I constantly get days old posts in my news feed even if there’s been no replies to them. If I see something and then accidentally refresh I may never find that post again because it’s lost in the Facebook algorithm.

In the end Facebook is still the best way to post and share news and info with friends, but the constant failures of the app time after time makes it beyond frustrating and disappointing to use.

No pictures

Pictures are not loading on Facebook what’s going on it keeps getting worse every time you update. I’m calling Channel 2 news and also calling the White House this crazy .
every time you update Facebook nothing is the same can’t see friends or family on here then you get stupid stuff please get this fixed like it used to be where people enjoyed it. For the last 4-5 days have seen the same posts from the same people maybe one new post come on please straighten this out. ( Can’t see friends post seeing same post for weeks everytime you update its screwed up please fix this can’t see family and friends . )(Still having same problem not seeing all of my friends and family posts everytime it’s updated it’s always the same things. Why are you always updating you make it worse no friends see people I don’t even know. Photos missing. Don’t like memories being showed. Last three weeks instead still seeing same thing no family or friends people I don’t really know on here. Please let me see my family and friends. My friends post are hidden or deleted says content no good it’s not for you to decide we should be the ones who decides if we want to see it. Still not seeing my family and friends post.

The mutating app that breaks itself.

There is an almost schizoid approach to the interface design, wherein FB keeps switching where things are located, adding or removing features as they see fit.! Don’t get too comfortable or familiar, because things will change. This being said, it sometimes feels like an arms race and ongoing cold war between the company and the user, whereby content is increasingly being intruded by an incessant need for the user to react rather than passively enjoy communicating and sharing things without an overbearing app presence. Further, settings and user controls are deeply buried, making it very difficult to opt out of data tracking or minimizing your online presence, away from data hungry companies which should require a transparent opt in process instead.

The worst part of the experience is usually video related, whether it is the terrible interface itself, or the annoying funneling of design, making it difficult to track through a video or to ignore overlays for comments and emotes over live and recorded content. On top of that are the bugs which plague this latest version with its frequent crashes.

I used to enjoy the simplicity of this app, but the more unwanted features they continue to cram in, the more bloated and annoying it has become.
