  • App is useless


    By HollyL45
    Facebook had become basically unusable for months. Many users repeatedly post the same issues without any response or resolution from Facebook. I’m an IT professional it appears the app is incapable of keeping up with the volume, maybe server issues. The app freezes constantly and crashes. Isn’t working at all while on wireless have to turn off my wireless to have any hope of being able to review my notifications. Anytime I get a new notifications it throws me out of where I am and back to the beginning of my notifications. Then I have to start all over again paging through the hundreds of notifications I receive to try to find where I previously left off which is next to impossible due to the endless freezing and crashes. Notifications I previously reviewed continue to show unread making it impossible to figure out which ones I’ve reviewed. The app has gotten totally frustrating to use to the point it’s taking me several hours a day just to get through notifications, there aren’t enough hours in the day to deal with Facebook which is slowing becoming a full time job to deal with. It’s a good thing it’s free because no one would pay for software that doesn’t work and provides no customer service or issue resolution. They constantly make so called updates that break previously working functionality. The updates are unwanted by the users, what we want is a reliable app not a bunch of bells and whistles that do nothing to improve the user experience.
  • Once a great app but no longer


    By grimmwhofan87
    This app used to be a great app for people to keep in touch with relatives or friends and let everyone know about their day or thoughts on personal matters... but no longer. Now it’s infested with politics, division, anger, and spam. Lots of spam accounts. You can’t read the comments on a post without being inundated with spam comments trying to get you to buy some crap or go to some porn website. Reporting them does nothing. Facebook either can’t figure out how to delete the profiles permanently or just doesn’t care. I guess the big bosses at Facebook are too busy trying to silence republicans that they can’t be bothered to deal with the mundane chore of cleaning up their website/ app. Also after the many updates and new “improvements” to the app, it is no longer user friendly. What used to be a simple setup has become confusing and tiresome for the user. Chat messages are no longer accessible on the website or on the app. You have to have another app for it. The timeline is never in order and even if you click on “see first” on a friend, it may be days or even a week before you see their posts. Fb used to have a calader with all your friends birthdays, or other special events on it and it would send you reminders a week or two in advance...and then on the birthday or anniversary day... not anymore. What used to be a great app is no longer. It’s gotten too big for itself and is a shadow of its former glory.
  • Functional, But Needs a Major Design Change


    By taylorboyer
    Facebook is an average social media app that is nice for communicating with friends and family for free (via Messenger). But, with that being said, it is time for Facebook to release a major design update for the mobile app. Often, when I am checking the reactions to my posts on Facebook, the reactions never load, are miscounted, or not updated. This is example number one of why Facebook needs to seriously upgrade. One thing that a lot of Facebook mobile app users have been waiting for is a dark mode for the app! It has been released across multiple platforms, including instagram, which is owned by Facebook. They released a dark mode for desktop users & the Messenger app, and it is beyond time for the mobile users to have the option for dark mode on the Facebook App. One last example of something that Facebook needs to update is it’s variety. Messenger only having a few color-themed backgrounds to choose, for example. Other than a design update, the app is very useful for communication, businesses, memes, inspiration, etc. It is also a good way to pass the time.
  • Ok so.


    By joile lily
    OK so I had a account on Facebook and I pretty sure somebody hacked it and with saying that I can not login the email that it says that I logged in with is not my email at all because one I know all my emails and this is not one of them I also know all my password because I have the written down and it’s saying it wrong I have tried to email Facebook and no one has answered me and that was over a month ago Um so with all the passwords I have put in and everything nothing is working so I keep trying right and the page like disappeared for awhile and today December 5 I some how found it back so I am now trying to get back in to it and I can’t still I’m so mad that it’s not working obviously Facebook is no help and they are not doing there job I literally just want to get back in my old account because I have so many friends and pictures on there. The one person on there is a old friend that passed away and the hole family has a thing where we posted on there happy birthday and all that but that doesn’t matter I want to fight out how to change my password on there but good old Facebook can’t answer some body questions so maybe Facebook well see this and help out? But I don’t recommend getting Facebook because I’m about done with this dumb app because they have me so mad about this hole thing.
  • You’re not allowed to be yourself anymore


    By Brulygirlnow
    Facebook used to be a fun place to connect with old school friends and family..a place where I could freely express my unique self. You used to be able to post anything you wanted whether it was true or not, just because you felt like it and nobody really cared! Some things opened up great discussions! Now, everything you share or comment is scrutinized by behind-the-screen random, ghost people. These people have their own opinions and when you freely express yourself like before, your posts or comments will be taken down, blocked or hidden, and all of your audience will be notified that your opinion or posts just happens to be something they personally disagree with. I did a test and posted 2 polar opposite opinions on an issue just to see what they would do, both of them were false news. The fake news I posted about current and political events had 2 distinct viewpoints. The one the ghost person disagreed with, was covered up and labeled as false with a link to an article for my audience to click proving their viewpoint. The other one that was also fake news, fit their personal viewpoint and they never touched it. I personally disagreed with both things I posted but found out quickly what the viewpoint was of the ghost robots behind the screens reading everybody’s personal stuff. Facebook is NOT a good thing!!
  • Facebook Review


    By Brando111692
    Causes nothing but drama, can’t even post something without hurting someone’s feelings, people going back and forth posting things about each other being toxic to each other and everyone on their feed, you got all this information on us like you’re the feds, sending us ads all the time, people just posting things for attention and likes and judging you based off how many likes you get, people getting addicted to it like a drug. About the most annoying thing ever and why I can’t stand or barely use social media anymore. It’s like a popularity contest on social media where people only communicate online but then in person they’ll be the complete opposite of who they claim to be. Great job for getting people so consumed with likes and attention on social media they don’t even realize what’s really important and have any in person communication skills. It’s not everyone that’s like this but it’s especially like this for the younger generations. Wish we could go back to the days before all of the social media mess. Don’t get me wrong there are some great things about it and you can meet people and connect with people from all over the world and can be great if used the right way but if not it can become extremely toxic to everyone.
  • Why?


    By texanian
    The link that used to take me directly to the page I administer now takes me to a feed of posts from all the pages I follow (which, by the way, does not load on my 7th generation iPad with the latest iOS), and I have to go through an additional link to get to MY page. Why make things more difficult instead of easier? It’s like you’re going backwards rather than forwards. Update: Thank you taking out the extra step to get to the page I administer. However, one of your recent updates has caused a different issue. Our church has been live-streaming worship services since the pandemic got so bad in March. We found that the way to get the best sound quality was to have a transmitter plugged into the output of the sound system & a receiver plugged into the charging port of the iPad we’ve been using for streaming. This worked great until shortly before Thanksgiving. We have discovered that the Facebook app now only allows the sound for live videos to come from the microphone of the device being used for the video. Ugh! There is no way (that we have discovered) to get the sound to channel through the receiver for the sound system instead of through the device’s microphone. This results in a lower sound quality for the video.
  • I once loved Facebook


    By Fleaswife
    When I joined Facebook back in the beginning when it was a brand new website I had a lot of fun connecting with people and seeing posts and posting things of my own and then when they started adding games that was loads of fun as well but over the years they’ve added ads galore, started censorship bs against me and those I follow because they don’t like any truth or opinions that don’t support their liberal communist narrative and forcing updates and major changes to the site that are often not wanted or desirable and we’re not allowed to keep classic mode and avoid the so called “upgrades” whenever this happens! Facebook “fact checks” posts that are factually entirely accurate yet they claim it’s false or contest the validity and often even remove the post entirely because the truth upsets them too much to allow those of us who want that truth or personal opinion shared on our own timelines to be allowed to have the free speech rights a public platform should be legally obligated to allow us all to have as long as it’s not something unlawful or derogatory! I’m trying to get more friends to switch to alternative platforms do I can make those my primary platforms now instead of the platform turned publishers like Facebook that want to control our thoughts, speech and lives!
  • Twitter here I Come


    By EzRylder
    I hate Facebook. If I could give Zero stars I would. It’s like school popularity all over again for adults. Only reason I have to have it is cuz I sign into apps with it and I’m so far committed to these apps it would be a huge hassle to start a different account. I’ve been cyber bullied/harassed/threatened countless times on here but as soon as I respond (fire with Fire), I’m always getting banned/restricted. It’s unreal. Like I seriously hate Facebook and everything it stands for at this point. I can’t wait until a different Social Media provider takes down Facebook. Instagram over Facebook all day any day. Bring back MySpace but FB can get bent for all I care. Edit: it’s funny I see a lot of the same complaints. Something tells me FB won’t be around for 2030. Ding dong the witch is dead. Facebook doesn’t realize it yet, probably cuz they are full of themselves, but y’all on the downhill swing of things. Enjoy your last run. 1 star reviews are piling up and y’all don’t care. Bullies. But I think it’s time I finally take the plunge and create a Twitter as my primary and use that for my app accounts. Facebook, you had your chances and your nothing but a bully yourself that allows bullies to thrive while restricting the people who simply defend themselves from these bullies, hence, your ALSO A BULLY.
  • Garbage updates.. MySpace was way better..


    By Tazzie637
    So the app keeps getting updated but these updates are making the app worse and worse.. When I save things to watch later, the “collection” I put them in doesn’t auto play, so I can’t just put it on while I’m cooking because I have to select the next video in the list each time.. Also when I remove videos, magically they play over again?? I can’t react to most videos.. only two videos load at a time.. This ain’t due to my WiFi, either.. Videos still don’t stay paused when I set my phone down.. And I keep seeing a notification for messenger when I’m on Facebook but I won’t have any messages or notifications when I go into the messenger app.. So basically Facebook has become a Broken system & your employees must not actually work or they’re purposefully making these awful changes to annoy people to stop using Facebook.. If I could keep in contact with my Ohana afar any other way besides Facebook, I would never use the app again.. Oh and can we please make dark mode available for all users, or at least add it to all iOS devices?? Please let me know if I’m reviewing for nothing because you’re not actually paying attention or reading the reviews so I can post these complaints straight to my wall instead.. Mahalo..
