Review from A Google User
No location on status updates. Bad new layout My city location no longer shows up on status updates. Please fix I liked this feature. Dislike the new layout. Doesn't feel right.
Feature changes suck Forced location on Mobile unless you turn it off on your phone. Can't update friendship categories (close, limited, etc.) on the app. Timeline automatically goes to "top stories" and you have to dig for most recent. So if you click on one post them want to look at a different one that looked interesting, good luck finding it again.
What's with the cast? With this update comes the notification which says 'no cast device connected' EVERY TIME I open a video. This notification cannot be cleared unless you go into settings and block All notifications, and when clicked on will flash white then simply return you to whatever screen you were just at. I have Google cast installed and it works fine with every other app... But i have not ever tried to cast a video from Facebook. And there is no cast icon on the video, so no way to try this...
Reloading issue Almost every time I look at an article, and sometimes while I'm just scrolling, my feed will automatically reload on its own and bring me back to the top of the feed rather than leave me where I left off. This is annoying as I will then need to scroll and search for where I left off. It's annoying and wish it wouldn't do this. Will change my rating to a 5 start if this ever gets fixed.
News feed is getting worse I love keeping up with friends and family, but I can't see very many posts anymore. Anytime my phone goes to sleep, or I don't use the app for a little while, or when I read an article it updates to the top of my feed. It is very frustrating. I have three kids, I can't sit and look at Facebook for an hour or even five minutes without interruptions. Then the app will update to the top of my feed, and I can't see all of my friends and families posts. I also know that they can't see mine.
Don't the devs USE this app?! So buggy lately! When I read a story outside the feed, it often (almost always) takes me back to the top of the feed. Verrrrry irritating. Sometimes it even just refreshes on its own right while I'm trying to scroll down thru the feed!
My TIMELINE is TERRIBLE! EVERY SINGLE TIME I go to read a news story or watch a video, my timeline refreshes! I can't go back to where I was originally on my timeline to see comments/replies from the post, it gets lost! Its VERY ANNOYING! Also, I don't get to see all of the posts of my friends and the people I follow! It's like it picks a few different pages and those people are all I see, all the time, WTH is going on? PLEASE fix this, I enjoy the app, but I am tired of ALWAYS updating and no good results come from it! Ugh!!
