Can't view feed cronologically
Derrick_J_F on 6/26/2017
Giving both Facebook and Instagram 1 star until they add a setting to view posts in chronological order. Twitter recently added this nonsense too but at least they had a setting.
No description of each update.
Kadizzle90104 on 6/26/2017
I want to know what is changing with each version, not just a guarantee that they're making the app better with each update. You can't save images on the newest version, so why would I want to unknowingly update to a nonfunctional piece of software?
#WeOutHere on 6/26/2017
Cant stand these ads fam! now i cant even watch a video without having an ad pop up!! i thought youtube was gonna be the only one with ads but then facebook decided to inherit them! smh
mak1285 on 6/26/2017
You show you have notifications yet you see nothing! The old notifications you do have are not in order, and do not show when you've looked at them.
Sick To Death Of PopUp Ads
popsdad on 6/26/2017
I hate these pop up ads. Only gives an ok option. Can't eliminate them. Always come back. Why are posts on this iPad app different from my laptop.
Used to love it new update blows
Sammi_D_Evansville on 6/26/2017
Now that I've installed the newest update, my phone says "hey you've got 8 new notifications"! Then when I open the app...there is nothing under notifications however if I search a post that I made I can see people have recently liked it or commented! Having to track down posts to see "if" someone commented is dumb!!!! FIX IT
EB🦄 on 6/26/2017
Because of the new update it won't show me my new notifications. It says I have some but when I go check itll only show the ones listed for earlier
Becc971 on 6/26/2017
My app keeps saying I have new notifications and when I logon my list never updates it's been the same since early am on Sunday ... I have uninstalled and reinstalled
Please describe
PaulJohnsonPgh on 6/26/2017

Only like it bc it's FB
Lioncita on 6/26/2017
No notifications???? WHYYYYY do fb updates always mean it will stop functioning in some way?
JustKela💋 on 6/26/2017
Please stop with the updates! Sheesh! Loved the way my business page WAS on my regular FB page (mobile) Now I have to go to "Pages" ..Just a extra step I have to take now. Thanks!👎🏾
So Annoying!
Li T. on 6/26/2017
Not able to view my notifications. I have to go to a web page to be able to see them. Fix this!
Fix please
Cnorton33 on 6/26/2017
Full of bugs! I open the app and it's just blank as if I have I have no friends and nothing to see bad update
Arabic language
Moayed-ly on 6/26/2017
Please support Arabic language in this application
Scrap it and start over.
fssdaniel on 6/26/2017
The updates are too big and I never see any major improvements. Messenger should not be a separate app.
Fb app is buggy
Milos993 on 6/26/2017
Notification failed to show, nothing is going on there.. please fix
Igugigigi on 6/26/2017
i can't do my profile temporarily it's annoying
Mire pool on 6/26/2017

Having issues
LahinsaD on 6/26/2017
It's been a week since my Facebook hasn't working. I cannot update the new version.
Why can't I reply to comments
crsty1 on 6/26/2017
The option to Like a comment has disappeared. Then if I go to reply, I can't like, heart , rainbow etc.
New update
mgamb on 6/26/2017
CONSTANTLY closing by itself. Worst Update yet.
I didn't got those new tabs
Purab077 on 6/26/2017
What's up with all the ads?
Amberbyrum0 on 6/26/2017
I understand some here and there to help pay for what's needed but now I can't even watch one single video without an ad interrupting it. Also, there are times where I'll scroll through the app and it just completely shuts down. Please fix this and I'll change it to five stars.
Chat bar
Vangelita on 6/26/2017
What happened to the active chat bar that was to the right? Now I cant see how long ago my friends were active.
Those adds in every video!
Nom Nom ! on 6/26/2017
Every video even if it one minute has a freaked ad on everything it so annoying! Might as well be on tumbler 👎🏼 worst update ever!
Will not up date
Bizey25 on 6/26/2017
Mines not updated and won't why not ?
Competing to make it worse? If so, good job
AbbyBane on 6/25/2017
Stop with scrolling to the top when I share a post!!!!! I KNOW I shared it! Still no order of posts being seen, and in the middle of reading a post, it will cycle and put me on a different post, then I have to scroll all over to get back to where I was. GIFs are only working in the early AM (EST). Still constant crashes and WHAT THE HELL on space?! I have 78 pics (not HD), zero videos, zero voice mails, 3 text messages, no game apps, and any time I update This or messenger, it will say my phone memory is maxed even if it isn't. It also keeps saying I have a message on messenger.... and it's a "turn on notifications" message... I DONT CARE!!! NOTIFICATION ALERTS KILL MY BATTERY! Update sat for 4 hours,never showed progress.CONSTANT CRASHES.Says I have 19 notifications,then shows none. Takes over a min to cycle to "newest notifications" but no longer lets me know when others comment on my posts.Tag notifications come 10-11 hours after posting so I'm missing convo.1/3 pics don't load,says error linking to album,but will show later in the day.HORRIBLE!! WHAT DID YOU DO?! Can't leave well enough alone!!
BelleEvans on 6/25/2017
Due to the size of the app (it's by far the largest) and the fact that your updates have turned to "Thank you for using facebook" and not telling me what you're actually doing with the app and having there not be any noticeable changes to the app, I am deleting it. I love being able to just go to facebook through an app like this, however, things have gotten ridiculous. I have to have one app for facebook and a completely different app for messaging, that's a joke. I get weekly notifications from the App Store saying that there's a new update for this app and when I click on it it doesn't give me any information on the update. I'm done with this app, I will continue to use facebook, but their app is a piece of crap and not worth the time.
Close friends shortcut gone, notifications MESSED UP
Cauliflower child on 6/25/2017
What happened? The Close Friends shortcut was a really great feature. When I try to add it back as a shortcut, it is conspicuously absent as a feed option although if I just go to the Feeds section, it's there. Annoying. And the new notification situation is, as many have noted, AWFUL and BROKEN.
Notifications issue
JDinamo on 6/25/2017
The notifications do not show on the app. Even though I get a notification I cannot go directly to reply or see any incoming comments or likes. Fix this issue.
Latest update 06/25/17
Azvanz671093 on 6/25/2017
Sorry guys, but your app keeps closing out on me every five seconds :/
No Notifications
kgard011 on 6/25/2017
Notifications won't work to save your life, such a pain in the a**. Can't stay uptodate on who's responding, etc. Extremely annoying.
Need immediate update.
naihan on 6/25/2017
Can't see any notifications.
Ads throughout Facebook
_moorea_ on 6/25/2017
I get ads make money, but almost every video has an ad now and it's irritating and makes me use Facebook less and less.
Keeps freezing
petitencuddly on 6/25/2017
Last update the worst. Keeps crashing and freezing up. Fix it. Now I'm not getting any alerts
Jmc^* on 6/25/2017
Why can't they make the updates in incremental downloads for those that don't have wifi access
Fix notifications
Taypop on 6/25/2017
The badge notification shows up on the app but when I open up the app it doesn't show any notifications. This is super annoying please fix it.
Notifications won't refresh
McAwesome10203 on 6/25/2017
I'm getting notifications but when I go to check them, nothing updates. Tried closing the app and everything and out of nowhere, I suddenly can't access them. I can see how many I have on the Facebook icon but they won't show up in the app itself. Using an iPhone and I'm not the only one with this issue. Also, swiping to access the camera is quite annoying. People prefer to take photos with their regular phone app so they can edit them with other apps first before posting. A camera there is convenient for few.
DMJoss on 6/25/2017
Can no longer get to group files. I have contacted but don't seem to want to fix this. Why change something that isn't broken. Very disappointed and dissatisfied.
Really bad app
Sher B in FL on 6/25/2017
Nothing like Facebook on your desktop. No way to set it to current posts, you're at FB's mercy on what you see.
Sxcret123 on 6/25/2017
It ruins the quality of my pictures and videos. And it's not just a little blurry. IT IS INSANELY BLURRY.
Bad update!!!
DeputyScott on 6/25/2017
Your last update is horrible. Most posts will no longer completely open. The app seems to hang up when each post is about 80% loaded, then it just sits there with the spinning circle. You can wait 5 - 10 minutes and the posts still will not finish loading. This makes the app useless!
No notifications since last update
HisDotr2 on 6/25/2017
This is becoming as long as War and Peace. Once again, notifications are frozen on my iPhone. I've deleted the app and now I'm downloading it again. 6-25-17 Any possibility that notifications will actually start working consistently? As of 6-19-17, they're frozen again on my iPhone 6+. Irritating!! The latest update (6-15-17) has actually made notifications worse! My notifications are frozen - no new ones are being added. Please fix this! I'm using an iPhone 6 plus. Since the last update I'm so frustrated. I see there are a number of notifications, but when I click on the notifications icon, there nothing new. I deleted the app from my phone, and then I could see them. Now they've disappeared again. I just deleted FB from my phone again, and reinstalled it. The notifications were back for a little while, now they're gone again. This is beyond annoying. BTW. FB on my computer is still working correctly.
E W W on 6/25/2017
I agree with many of the 1 star reviews. It is crazy that Apple hides many other 1 star reviews to try to make apps appear better than they are.
Not a fan, fail!
ShearKrisCo on 6/25/2017
Why in the world are my notifications in some random ridiculous order?! I get 8 notifications but go to check them and the "new" is over 3 hours ago and I can't see any truly new ones!! Not a fan, not even a little. I run a business from my phone and I use Facebook as a resource. This new update is an epic fail. Disappointed!!
Fix asap
Niicollle_ on 6/25/2017
Everytime I try to upload a new profile picture it says I can't, but then it uploads it blurry.
App Crash
Iuvcupcakes777 on 6/25/2017
The last upgrade cause the app to freeze constantly. Annoying! 6/25 Upgrade after upgrade and it is still freezing!
New update no timeline notifications
ala4life on 6/25/2017
Since yesterday's update I can't receive my timeline notifications. It will say 12 but they will not load on my iPhone. I've restarted my iPhone several times still not fixed. Please fix ASAP!
usjebebbx on 6/25/2017
Wondering why I don't have the new background and text when I just did the new update like a day ago
No notifications in app
truleblessed on 6/25/2017
