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.
Ever since the last handful of updates, hundreds of photos that I’ve posted have just disappeared. Before the updates you could just go to your profile and tap “photos” and it would show you ALL of the photos you’ve ever posted from most recent to oldest. And it just showed the photos. But now you have to go through like 5 different options/settings to access your photos and 1)it’s not just the photo it’s showing, it’s what you wrote and the comments that were on it, making the actual photo minuscule and hard to see 2) the VAST MAJORITY are gone. Now I only have 20 photos(and they arnt even all the ones I’ve posted, most are posts I was tagged in) and they are from scattered dates. One will show up that was from last week, then 2015 then 2018 then 2019, back to 2018. Again, I’m missing almost all of my photos. I’m not looking for photos I’ve been tagged in, I’m looking for photos I’ve posted. And they are all gone except for a select few, and of those select few most arnt even mine. They are just tagged photos. I wish I could unupdate and go back to where all my photos showed up in chronological order by just pressing one large button that said “photos”. I keep updating hoping it will be fixed and it’s still the same. I have the same issue when I’m trying to look at my friends photos. Only 10 show up and it says “end of results” I swear if Facebook lost all of our photos....
Not Worth the Bull
Facebook is the absolute worst platform I’ve ever used for social media. I understand its profound popularity for sure, but for the lack of attention to detail it truly undermines. It’s full of junk and privacy concerns.
The site looks entirely different based on the platform it’s displayed on. Application vs Website plus difference in device from iPad to iPhone. There’s no fluidity between any sources and what’s worse is the menus are insane to navigate. I can never find anything I’m looking for because it’s so clogged with ridiculous, non important buttons and information.
Now don’t even get me started on privacy. I can’t even change my profile photo without it trying to let the world know exactly what I’m doing and at what day in time I did it at, therefore leaving me with no choice but to go back and click the globe(only on certain platforms in certain situations of course not always) or the options button on the top of the post to change the privacy settings so that nobody sees my action or changing a profile picture, like anyone cares!
What I’m actually writing this review for is business. Trying to run any type of Facebook page for business is less worth it than door-to-door sales. It’s hopeless and only stunts my growth rather than supports it. Time is money here Facebook!!! Separate your services and stop combining everything into one server it can’t even handle a description edit!
