  • 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.
  • 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!!
  • TIRED!!!

    By LF3201
    Whatever happened to our First Amendment rights? I’m sick and tired of being censored, this shouldn’t happen in America ever, not on an American owned and based company/app! And all bc my political views don’t match up with that of the owner/operator of FB, those that have been the loudest up until now and of the fictional news media. I’m also tired of unofficial election results being shoved down my throat, with those folks knowing good and well the results are not official, forgetting that some ppl do know a bit about political science and when and how the elections work!! I’m tired of posts of my friends and mine being labeled as violent when they’re nothing of the kind all while others who don’t even know me threaten me and others with physical bodily harm and even death bc we support our President!! Posts get flagged or covered completely claiming that “fact checkers” had proven it to be false, number 1 the fake news puts out false info hourly, 2 it’s our right to speak/post what we want, false or not per our 1st amendment, 3 the info being false according to who, the fake news? In other words it’s time for FB to go back to being just an impartial bystander, but I guess I’m forgetting that the owner/operator Mark Zuckerberg is a Marxist, so that’ll never happen I guess, until we overcome the Marxist trying to destroy our Democratic Republic and take back our rights!!
  • Fascistbook !

    By JulesDaBoss
    Most bias social network. They promote an atmosphere that allows bullying. They have community standards they hide behind while promoting an atmosphere that lets people harass you like sending video recordings or video calls and vulgar bully remarks via messenger. Dirty delete game is rampant with instigators on FB especially those with an agenda to push. It’s gotten really pathetic and many people are moving to Parler and mewe. FB on the other hand won’t allow links to either of those social media networks be put on messenger! They have algorithms kicking back messages with links per many people opening accounts with their competitors. It’s no longer a place to have your own opinions. Just had a suspension for telling off a wack job harassing me for no reason other than telling a poster to ignore her she’s probably a HS student. That resulted in this woman sending me recorded messages on messenger all screwed up high as a kite slurring making racial remarks and threatening me. She then tried to video call and when I took pic of the correspondence and posted it stating I wouldn’t tolerate it she then began posting remarks and sending more comments to my messenger. She dirty deleted when I wrote to her to go do her dope got suspension but this person I get rejected reports doesn’t go against standards?! I’m guessing my conservative cover photo was the cause of their decision making.
  • Actually I’d say ZERO stars!

    By Skywatcher007
    Sick of being censored. Sick of your so called “fact checkers.” You and your “fact checkers,” wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped you across the face! Here’s a FACT for you, as of this present day, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS STILL THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! YOU actually promote FAKE NEWS! I’m sick of Facebook because it’s biased. Distasteful sexual images and videos along with violence from “certain groups of people,” are permitted but we can’t share actual facts, be mind that kids are on this platform. You put a tag on every single one of OUR PRESIDENTS posts which is so disrespectful where respect is due. At first Facebook seemed to bring people together but now it pushes to divide. I do not want to see your ads. I do not want you listening in on my conversations then showing me ads about what I say in private. By January 1, 2020 I will have deleted Facebook for good. Mark Zuckerberg, you should be ashamed of yourself. Your parents should be ashamed of the way you turned out. I doubt I’ll ever come back. I know plenty of people are transitioning away from your platform as well. We’re just sick of it all. If I could choose the old MySpace over Facebook, I definitely would. Tom was way better than you any day. Since the old MySpace isn’t an option, I have found other platforms that I LOVE, like WimKin, Parler, MeWe and more. GOOD BYE FAKEBOOK!
  • Fascistic Censorship

    By 'Merica5
    I have had a Facebook profile for several years now and i can personally attest to its steep decline as a whole. Facebook is a platform not publisher. Meaning it is not responsible for what its users post. However, more and more recently Facebook had decided to act as a publisher. It will restrict and censor any profile, article, page, or post that does not align itself with left wing ideology and agendas. Companies like Facebook and Twitter have become merely a propaganda outlet for the Democratic Party, much like mainstream media. Here is the good part!! I live in the greatest, most free and prosperous country in history of the world. I mainly said that because i know leftists hate America so they won't like that part much. Anyway, with Facebook moving to suppress free speech and conservative voices, it was just a matter of time before other companies rose up to fight back against Facebook’s fascistic censorship of anything it doesn’t like. Of these is Parler. Capitalism, baby! I would like to encourage everyone and anyone who reads this to delete Facebook and come over to Parler where your views and beliefs wont be censored and suppressed just because they differ from those of King Zuckerberg’s. So much for the “tolerance of the left”, right? But then again if the left didn’t have double standards, they would have no standards at all. See you on Parler!!
  • 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.
