Once I've opened a video or photo and then close it and go back to my newsfeed it will not open another video or photo from my newsfeed again until I restart the app.

Very annoying. Random crashes for no apparent reason.
A work in progress
DATAMAGIK on 8/21/2017
As reluctant as I am to give such a low rating to a program that has obviously had a lot of thought put into it, it seems to still be a work in progress. On my iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1.3 (and with earlier versions of both this app and iOS) it tends to randomly crash often. I suspect this is memory related, and urge developers to load other apps (lots) and do frequent context switches (double tapping home, or single press to go back to springboard) so that can duplicate this in tearing. Feature wise the web app as used in desktop browsers is still necessary to get full functionality, especially with page management. While the FB Pages app addresses some of this, it too is a poor relation to the website.
Can't access messenger
CR Singh on 8/21/2017
Messenger is not hosted in app. Can't message on mobile devices without installing a large separate app; hard to do unless you have a pricy phone. Makes for a bad experience.
Thank you.
Mattstar69 on 8/21/2017
Dear Facebook , I appreciate you trying to decide which of my friends post I should look at immediately & which ones I shouldn't see till the end of the day. I especially love that when someone I may not talk with on Facebook on a regular basis however I still care about has lost a loved one and I don't see their post till several days later. It really makes me feel good that I can call them several days after the fact. Since the people who care more to pollute their page with stupid memes they clearly care more thus should be the first to see the post. I'm sure my 5 day late call is comforting since the ones who care had already called & I'm sure 5 days it's great to talk to someone who just found out because you they haven't been thinking about it enough on their own so it's essential that their absentee friend bring it up some more. I really appreciate that you think a computer algorithm knows what I want to see more than I do & that you think me incapable of simply unfriending, blocking or unfollow the people's updates I don't want to see. It's Facebook & social media that have helped me realize that it's inefficient and unproductive for me to decide for myself what I want to see and when I want to see it. So thank you Facebook for being so helpful. Much like an abusive boyfriend or power hungry dictator getting to choose who their victims can talk to & and who they're allowed to listen to. Tell the truth or don't speak, don't lie. You claim to do weekly updates to make the app better for the user & that's maybe loosely based on truth. What I would respect is if you just said "we are overhauling the look and functionality to better serve our wallets. The major changes to Facebook over the years have all benefitted your ability to sell ad space and provide different ways to force the user to see ads which increases your add revenue. I get you're a business but please present yourself as one. If you truly cared about the user the simple act of making the feed go in chronological order a simple change that has ruined both Facebook & Instagram.
Facebook update
Diaebbra on 8/21/2017
Ever since you updated the app on the 19th. I don't have sound on the videos and I can't click on the video either. Works on my daughters phone but not mine. I have a iPhone 5s and she just has a regular cell phone. How can I get this fixed?
Won't let me log in
Ppcchxgxtg on 8/21/2017
When I try to make a account it asks for a picture of yourself and I did and I've waited a week and got on and said your account was dissabeld
What happened?
Simpsons Love 5* but.... on 8/21/2017

Won't let me open FB app
Pabs jhfghbvfhhb on 8/21/2017
Please do something about this haven't been able to use my Facebook app in like 2 weeks it goes dark when I click on it like it's about to open the app but never actually opens I have an IPhone 7
mohammed369 on 8/21/2017
The program comes out automatically
Feed frequently gone
idiotwithgunz on 8/21/2017
It keeps telling me I need to add friends to have a feed...
Jumps around
Fastest dashed on 8/21/2017
Current version jumps location on scroll bar while I'm reading a post, and I'm often unable to find the post again after this happens. Please fix ASAP
SirStevo on 8/21/2017
Now I can't click on videos and hear sound
Irene iPhone 6 on 8/21/2017
Okay so now on the play button next to the newsfeed button well I can't press on the videos to hear the video like on the newsfeed it's weird
DCNationYT on 8/21/2017
You can't even message your friends without fb trying to shove their adds down our throats. Why are we forced to download an app that's taking space by constantly updating with no real changes or fixes??? Someone explain that...
mplankton55 on 8/21/2017
Seriously what is wrong with the News Feed not updating anymore?? Two weeks and all I keep seeing when I open the FB app are the same 8 or 9 posts over and over again. What's the point of using FB anymore if you can never see anything from anyone or any pages??
Facebook Ads?
SolSuicyd on 8/21/2017
What's next Facebook Blue Prem were we pay to remove ads? The only thing Facebook is good for now remembering people's birthdays. Btw if you do that I want 5% for my idea.
Repeatedly crashes--cannot open app
Mrs.Yoshi_CA on 8/20/2017
My husband and I have both been so frustrated this weekend. Our FB app (on both phones) keeps crashing every time we open it! I have the latest version, and I've checked all the support stuff; I can't even open the app long enough to report a problem! PLEASE fix this, the app was working great before!
It's pretty good
The best kkkkkkk on 8/20/2017
I like it but sometimes it crashes
Hate the ads
~querida~ on 8/20/2017
Hate the constant ads, they are all I ever see on my newsfeed and on videos.
Please give me the scheduled group posts!
bd99999 on 8/20/2017
I love Facebook but I seriously need you to give me the ability to schedule posts in groups. Some people have had it for months and I have the latest update and still don't have it :(
Checking in places we haven't been
Dianna Det on 8/20/2017
You need to stop putting things on Facebook that I haven't played or done.
kevin/Superbad on 8/20/2017
When i click on the second icon from the left(the video button) and then try to play a video, nothing happens!
Bug issue
Tazz21209 on 8/20/2017
I can't even watch video since the update it won't play any video giving a 2 stars fix issue please
Force closing
Luckieladi0504 on 8/20/2017
Recently my app has been closing out on me for no apparent reason at all! Please fix this!
Video and Volume don't working
Pittlook on 8/20/2017
Video didn't open on full screen! Volume in video don't changing by side buttons 7+
Search bar
JamJam325 on 8/20/2017
I love this app but I'm having issues with searching for things. I can no longer search for specific articles and when I search inside a group, it brings me to posts from 2015 first.
Wow Suggested Videos No Longer Loads.
Bulls_Rule_World_Donmination_ on 8/20/2017
Everything seemed to be fine until I updated it lastnight... The suggested videos for you part of the mobile app doesn't allow me to click into the videos nor load the sounds. I was enjoying it so much too as of late! So much for an update? This is exactly why I dislike updating my apps!
oddgrandpa on 8/20/2017
I just recently took the plunge and made an account for the first time. Mainly to join some music and art group that I work work with. Not to reminisce with old friend. Yet I've been wrongly disabled multiple times within 10 to 20 minutes of usage. Facebooks security protocol are the most inaccurate inefficient piece of s#*+ I have ever seen. I'm done wasting my time. There are better social media outlets on the market. Don't waste your time with Facebook if you a first time user.
Ads are out of control
Girl with the Dinosaur IPhone on 8/20/2017
Facebook apparently wasn't making enough money before, so the latest updates have made it to where Facebook will insert ads in the middle of almost every video you watch. Very, very annoying. If you haven't updated yet, don't.
New Update is AWFUL
ssinsanity on 8/20/2017
The new update feels more like the app went back five years into the past and tried to put together a social media app. I hate the new comment bubbles -- they are difficult to read and even harder to maneuver and locate. I wish I wouldn't have updated 😩 Please change it back to the regular, easy-to-read model!
ShortyFlyyyy on 8/20/2017
What happened to the updated version? I liked the new icons better. Please fix.
Still needs work
AwesomeAdam117 on 8/20/2017
This has everything you need in a facebook app. You can do anything you would on a computer. But am i the only one whos news feed is in random order? Ill see posts range from 3 minutes ago to 3 days ago all in the same day and its pretty annoying
Stop interrupting my videos!
Can Ozlem on 8/20/2017
Whoever had this terrible idea of putting video ads inside videosl, and all those who helped him execute it, deserve a special video ads place in hell. Terrible UX! Please roll back!
LeoJM2 on 8/20/2017
Why are liked pages no longer in my newsfeed? This version is awful. As is the new camera and the useless stories at the top. Do us a favor and stop trying to make the app "better."
Current Update Makes It Run Horrible On The iPad
Robinflea on 8/20/2017
Now that I've updated, it's laggy and literally won't play one video. Says my connection strength is bad when I can watch hours of a YouTube video on full HD so for sure some bug. The last version worked perfectly and this one is just a disaster for my device.
Takes up too much space
charlie3819 on 8/20/2017
Can someone pls explain why this is taking up a whole gigabyte in my phone
Notification bug?
Xav6455 on 8/20/2017
When I select "turn off notifications for this post," I'll still get notifications fairly often. Can you fix that?
Cannot open videos
Cocoa0320 on 8/20/2017
When I go to the screen to watch random suggested videos I can't open them. I've tried turning my phone off and closing the app. I've experienced this for 4 days
Marshallgarden on 8/20/2017
Ultima atualizacao faz abrir instagram via safari, para DEPOIS oferecer a opcao de abrir via app. Péssimo isso. E travando direto, e fechando o app tbm. Nao gostei.
Fix video playback
arthur.n on 8/20/2017
Pausing or stopping a video is frustrating
iBegorgeous928 on 8/20/2017
It is very hard to read through posts with over 100 comments. There should be a scroll bar or something to where we can scroll to see comments better. Sometimes I keep hittin load more comments an it's so many that it doesn't load an I never get to see comments from before . Please fix this change the way we can scroll through the comments of posts on the comments section
The app is now broken
Timjumps on 8/20/2017
After the latest update the app will occasionally spontaneously scroll back to the top. This is particularly annoying when viewing the "Most Recent" feed. For more fun sometimes it gets in a loop when scrolling down and just shows the same status entries over and over. Did you guys test this release?
Have to change settings daily
TPbro16 on 8/20/2017
The app is a great way to find out what is going on in the lives of your friends and family, but the in app settings do NOT stick with what you change it to. It has been happening for months and is becoming really irritating. The dumb in app sounds are the main issue. My dog hates them and started barking over it, which makes my baby daughter start to cry, when we try to discipline the dog, it just makes our daughter become even more hysterical. Causing the entire house to be chaotic. EASY FIX FACEBOOK, please fix it!
Abujaib0532586001 on 8/20/2017
Always crash everyday
Riaah Nicole on 8/20/2017
Wont let me react to people picture comments 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️ y'all need to do another update asap cuz I can't even delete picture comments I'm mad and ready to just delete fb 💯💯
Facebook crash
Bajgdjdkeu567 on 8/20/2017
My Facebook keeps crashing and I don't know why. Fix this...
Refreshing constantly
1746797 on 8/20/2017
If I leave the app and go to another app even for just a few seconds ,Facebook will refresh and I'll lose where I was. It's incredibly annoying. It constantly crashes on my phone. I'll just be reading an article and suddenly it crashes. Would it be so hard to have it load back up where I was before? Other apps do. All these updates and you still can't let me continue where I left off?
What diff does it make?
sloppyharp on 8/20/2017
If one skips an "update", it's forced, regardless, so why even ask??? Latest is bad. Can't edit posts. Issues changing profile pic. 😤
Timelines are all messed up!
Frogtastical!!!!!!!!!!!!! on 8/20/2017
I only like scrolling through Most Recent - WHICH SHOULD BE THE FIRST TAB - and thinks that Top Stories is useless. But now I'm forced to use top stories becuase most recent only shows like 2-3 posts total and I'm missing updates! Plus I have the videos to automatically play when scrolling and that's stopped to. (And yes my settings are correct) *** App crashes after just a few minutes of scrolling. Only started happening after the last update. What's the point of going through your timeline if you can even see past 1 hr?!? Get it together FB.
