    I have an idea though if you are going to change the layout of the app, or website you should give the billion or more people on Facebook a heads up so they don't complain. Personally I love it when it changes! It gives me a challenge! Thank you for creating this social media. I can keep in touch with lots of people that I wouldn't be able to otherwise! Since update my Facebook application doesn't work. If I use my Google Chrome browser it does on my phone. Full Review

    Facebook has gone way down hill. It started as a great way to keep up with family and friends, but now it's only videos and all the videos have ads in the middle of them. I was fine when the occasional sponsor video was there. I could just keep scrolling. But the ads in the middle of videos are what really killed it for me, just let me watch the video! I will no longer be using facebook because of thid Full Review

    I use both a Samsung s8 and the Moto z2 force and on both phones, whether I'm on wifi or data the videos on FB lag so badly. But when I pull up youtube fast and no buffering. It's been like this for me at least for almost 2 months and I don't know what the deal is. Of course I still use the app but it's gotten really annoying to watch any video on FB now.. Full Review

    As everyone else is experiencing. Everytime I click to review my notifications. It takes me all the way to the bottom and I have to scroll up plenty of times to see my most recent. Worst part also is the audio of the videos. For some reason: a video plays, I keep scrolling, I pass like 4 posts already and that first video is still playing! I even had a video play even after I had clicked to review my profile. So annoying. Please fix ASAP!!! Full Review

    Keepa.crashing when you goto a live feed. You can hear the audio in the background. When your try to reopen the app it goes to the newsfeed and audio just keeps playing in the background. I've noticed it crash a lot lately. Then when you reopen the app it has a loading status bar that loads before the app actually reopens. Other than that, no complaints Full Review

    This review is for the latest update. My phone (galaxy s8+) auto updated last night and it's terrible. The app literally will not open at all. It stays on the blue Facebook logo screen with the loading bar. But when the bar gets to full, it won't open! Why have an update that won't let me open the dang app!? I used this app a lot too. I really liked it before the latest update. If this problem can get fixed, it would be 5 stars. Full Review

    Every update gets worse. Last update my notifications would scroll all the way to the bottom and I'd have to endlessly scroll all the way up just to click it or even see what it was. The update today. Horrible. WiFi or not nothing will load not even the little retry symbol with the tower when it's slow or half pages Just a blank white screen with the blue header. Go back to like 4 years ago. No extra stuff except for reactions and live videos Full Review

    Great app. The other reason I would rate a 3 star is because of the videos. When Facebook released the version where the videos play as you're scrolling, it worked great. Now I scroll past the video and it's still playing. I hit the home key. Not on Facebook anymore and the video still plays. I have to close the app completely. It's super frustrating Full Review

    It bothers me that in the section of photos about a person and in general I can't see who uploaded that picture and when. Also I just noticed you restricted the opportunity to choose with whom to share a post, so I can't have the friends except option any more. Also if I wanna see the about description of a person it's simply wouldn't scroll down. A huge mess, the app is not functioning. It's a shame, with iOS facebook is much more advanced. After the new update you can't like posts, only single photos. Full Review

    I have received the upgrade every day this week from Facebook way too many secondly you can't unfollow a comment in your notification section anymore. Why? You had a good setup when everything was at the bottom but you got rid of it for some reason please make it one way and leave it alone Full Review

    Do we really need those annoying ads everytime we watch a video? I hate the layout in the comments section of a post. Half the screen is taken up with the write a comment box when sometimes I just want to look at the comments Full Review

    Latest update broke the notification panel. When you click the bell, it jumps to some date of it's choosing instead of going to your most recent notifications. You end up having to scroll for days to get to the top only to see notifications you've already reviewed. Full Review

    Forces close in the middle of videos. Forces close when I click on posts with multiple pictures. Forces close when I am trying to post. Yet it updates every dang day. My as well just stay closed for all the good it does. Fix what's wrong before you try and add more. Come on Zuckerberg your a multi billionaire. Hire a tech team worth their salary! Full Review

    My review got removed so here it goes again: New update is awful. 1) when you like a picture it instantly removes you from the screen and takes you back to news feed 2) too many ads 3) when you have notifications and click on them it doesn't take you to top if the page to new notifications and you have to scroll up Full Review

    Crashes after liking pictures...when I like a photo the screen goes white, crashes the entire program. I can't comment on photos anymore without the same thing happening. This started about a week ago, so after a recent update. It's frustrating. So if I want to comment or like anything I have to go to a physical computer. Please find a fix. Full Review

    Why do you guys don't listen? You refuse to fix this app. All you do is think up sucky layouts. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And instead you foul everything up. You make the like button animated when you press it, you add this really annoying symbol forcing you to go to landscape mode, nut to mention you added a speaker symbol on the side of the screen, and you add subtitles. Stop changing everything that dosen't need changing. I would be very happy if you change things back the way it was. Then fix the bugs on this app. Full Review

    This app keeps getting worse and worse with every update. It requires permissions it doesn't need - why does Facebook need my call records!?! And when I attempt to look at notifications it send me to notifications over a month ago and they have already been reviewed. Yes, I have the most recent update. No, I don't have a phone low on RAM. Becoming ridiculous to stay in touch with everyone. Full Review
