It's easy to share photos straight from your Android camera, and you have full control over your photos and privacy settings. You can choose when to keep individual photos private or even set up a secret photo album to control who sees it.

Facebook also helps you keep up with the latest news and current events around the world. Subscribe to your favorite celebrities, brands, news sources, artists, or sports teams to follow their newsfeeds, watch live streaming videos and be caught up on the latest happenings no matter where you are!

    "Improvements for reliability and speed". Just how many more times am I going to see them words for the constant updates of this app. If a decent update was there in the first place there wouldn't be the need for it. The app is shocking and it's getting worse. Videos and sound start playing automatically, comments not available to read and it takes up way too much space nearly 700mb just for this app and it's associated messenger. Full Review

    If I open a link into a different browser, the app refreshes my feed so I have to scroll back through to find where I was previously at. Now you've "updated" the notifications which has completely screwed up the order of my notifications to where new notifications don't show in chronological order. Makes ZERO sense if I have to hunt through old notifications to find new ones. No one likes your algorithms, just make the app user friendly. After 3 years of not using the app, I'm ready to stop using it all over again. Full Review

    The update make it worst on viewing videos. It always gives you a very low resolution video at first for a couple of minutes, enough to strain your eyes before you enjoy watching it. Then the hd video comes when the clip is about to end. Earlier update is much better. When I try to open a picture in fullscreen it just wont show any and freezes.Ohh by the way if you say its because of my phone, no! I used Samsung s8+. Fix it! Full Review

    It's a good app, but I hate all the damn updates. Each update makes my devices slower and slower. And it never refreshes my news feed. I see the same stories over and over again for days. Yes, I have wifi. So it's not my internet connection. It also takes up so much space. You have to delete what apps you have to be able to download it. It also doesn't give you all the privacy it says it does. I have a private account, and people are still able to follow me and message me. I have all that turned off. No one who I'm not friends with should be able to do any of that. Full Review

    It has historically been horribly slow on pushing notifications down. I would receive notifications as far as months late, and usually days. Where current notifications may never appear. This has been made worse with the latest update, as now when I see a notification it constantly asks me to login. Then when I do it just brings you back to the login request screen, so you can never actually view the notification. Full Review

    I'm sure there's a good reason why the app now asks me for a password when I try to edit my search history. I'm sure it's not just the super awesome QA team being super awesome or anything. And also? Randomly adding and removing features? Spectacular idea. This app is garbage and everyone involved should reconsider their life choices. Full Review

    The App keeps logging me out, non stop, randomly since the update. See the same stories at the top of my feed after one hour and not the most recent ones.. make it so you have the most recent posts in your groups and friends instead of what fb wants you to see. Tired of searching for recent post through posts that happened 2 hours ago. And fix the damn random logouts! Full Review

    This app freezes every time I try to comment on a status or picture! Very annoying to the point were I use my mobile browser! I'll give it 5 stars once this is fixed, but its been going on for 2 weeks now, and I've reported it multiple times and nothing has changed! 😒😡 Full Review

    Latest update broke the world. App is unusable now. The timeline is stuck on what it was a couple days go. None of the likes work, and they all return "Error, please try again". When you click on a person's profile, it just shows their profile picture and won't load the rest of the page. I am still getting notifications, but when you click in them it sends you to an error page. App is totally broken. Switched back to browser. Which is actually better because it blocks all the ads.

    Finally after nearly two years it looks like you've fixed the scrolling issue (with the menu popping up in comments at random) and the keyboard displaying. I can now say this app is actually pretty good and enjoyable to use at last Full Review

    Facebook used to be fun and useful. But after the novelty wears off and you see the same pics of the world's most charming kids and pets endlessly, graduate to political BS from god knows who. Then you find out it has become a tool for manipulation of democratic institutions. It's only a matter of time before I opt out. Full Review

    Too many updates eating up my what little phone space I have left because it doesn't allow you to move it over to the sd card. If there is another update I'm deleting it altogether.. Don't have space. I have lots of space on the sd card but on on the phone!.. Had to reformat MicroSD card as internal memory thanks dumb droid 6.0.1 Full Review

    Is it every time there'll be update? Developers especially big companies like Facebook have lost the true value of updates.. they just update everytime with just minor things added. Can't you guys just wait till you have enough features to add at a time? Smh Full Review

    Oh what a surprise I download the update and as usual it leaves the app almost unusable, most recent now only shows 2 posts, no matter how many times you refresh. So just as I had to do on my previous phone I shall be deleting the app an going back to occasionally checking Facebook via the browser (which is actually a nicer experience as my ad blocker removes all the ads from the time line) Full Review

    One update after another. Updated the app 4 times in a week. The hell is wrong with you. Update didn't change anything. Constantly freezing most of the video has no sound I have reset my phone to factory settings still nothing. Doesnt even responds to feedback. Where is your customer service. Full Review

    It's good for a little while. Then they send an update a screw it all up. Videos play pixelated and never buffer out. Before the past 2 updates they were fine. Automatically refreshes and sends you into Narnia. While scrolling through, it will repeat everything over and over again. Full Review

    Freezes almost any time I try to open a link. I preferred it when links automatically opened with an external app like Chrome. Can't handle the usual types of pages I try to open, as well. Takes forever to load. EDIT: I hate it even more because now I can't open a link and go back without Facebook automatically refreshing my feed so I lose my place! Honestly, for having such an impact and fortune, this is one of the worst designed apps. Full Review

    Loads of updates, full of nothing, eats up all the storage space and freezes the app. FB has definitely gone to the dogs at the app zone. Keep this up and you are over and done pretty soon. I don't understand what "improvements on reliability and speed" can you make every week? Full Review

    My "most recent" tab will show me 3-5 actual recent posts. Then skip to 3 days ago! Or it will just stop loading my feed entirely. It's getting frustrating. I use the "most recent" for a reason. I want current. Not almost a week ago! Full Review

    I usually use facebook mostly for random videos, but I'm getting really really annoyed about having ads interrupt the video mid-way through. I mean, I know I'm being KINDA polite about it but it honestly makes me want to find the sumbitch who thought of that and slice him up into little bits and feed him to his pet(s) and/or spouse.

    Thank you for getting rid of tool bar at bottom of page. Now after this new update, app keeps force closing and I cant upload videos and today I find I can't upload photos. Please fix! Why is it that when I view my public page it shows things that I only show my friends, I have my facebook setting on private. So is my facebook private or is it just a lie? If it is not a lie then why is my private posts made public? Also, they app keeps force closing every 15-20seconds. This needs to be fixed pronto, or I may delete account and make a different social account using a different provider. This is ridiculous. I have not updated in about 6 years, for this reason. Bad updates. Full Review

    Timeline review requires login but then never let's you in so I the last few posts I've been tagged in I've just not been able to get to. (which I only fixed now after weeks by in installing and reinstalling, as everything was updated already when the problem occurred) When I click on a link to my browser to read an article etc Facebook automatically refreshes and I lose where I was in my newsfeed when I go back. Also the notifications I get are frecken stupid. Like why must I be notified if one of 400 people posted? Or there are things for sale in one of my groups? Or I haven't been very active? Calm down, please Full Review

    I avoided this app because I know how much battery power it drains and how it seems to totally embed itself into everything. Even when you put it into hibernation other apps always open it up. I was forced to get this app in the end to upload videos from my phone to Facebook but now it doesn't even seem to do that anymore so at last I can delete this imposing piece of junk from my phone. I gave you three stars because it looks good. Count your lucky stars that I did. (pun intended😜) Full Review

    I have repeatedly gone on the help center and sent screen shots of issues and no one ever responds and issues haven't been fixed, first was an issue with blocking people. I submitted the issue in the help center over a month ago, no response. The biggest issue right now is that I can't even do anything in the app except look at my news feed, anytime I try to do anything else, I get a "log in/join/create new account" screen and when I try to log in it always says I am using an old password, I get a 6 digit code texted to me to reset my password, i reset it and it still says it's an old password, even though I JUST changed it. I continue to get the same log in screen, this has been going on for weeks for me and my husband's account, I submitted the issue in the help center and still no response. It's ridiculous. Is no one monitoring FACEBOOK issue, SERIOUSLY!? Full Review
