    So clearly there is lots of room for improvement in the Facebook app, but this bug renders it completely unusable for me.

    Whenever I'm scrolling through my news feed, I get the loading bars and the page scrolls back to the top. This happens so many times I rarely get through the stories of the day before I give up.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Yup, drove me nuts. Go into the settings and uncheck the box for shake to refresh. It seems it's WAY too sensitive. I emailed the devs about it and have yet to hear a response.

    Weak. It's been behaving for me after I unchecked that setting. Only issue I really have now is it seems to load like 10 items before it has to reload when scrolling down.

    it doesn't appear to be the shake feature as it also does it when the phone isn't in my hand. They need to get their act together and get some updates out for this app.

    hold your thumb down when you back out to the main page and then let go, this keeps it from refreshing

    Question to everyone out there-

    Has anyone else been having a problem with their facebook news feed? On my Verizon 8X it recently (within the last two weeks) has been omitting multiple hours of the news feed on both the people hub and on the facebook app. Basically, it will show somewhere around the most recent 2-5 hours and then skip back 24 or more hours, with the time in between missing. This has been verified by using the facebook website to make sure there were posts in that "missing" timeframe.

    I don't know if this problem exactly syncs up with the portico update, but it was around the same time. All other features of both the people hub and the facebook app work normally. I can post, check in, comment on other people's posts, upload pictures, etc.

    On a side note, does anyone know why some people's posts will appear only on the website and not in the people hub or on the mobile app? Always found that a bit odd...

    Any help or insight is appreciated!

    They won't. If they had any plans for WP8, they at least would have an official app.

    I just dont understand why facebook doesn't give a damn. Out of any OS no other one i know of has so fully and beautifully integrated into how it works. I don't understand why such neglect.

    Also lets not pretend that BlackBerry is actually going anywhere any time soon.

    Economics. Why develop for BB and wp8? They have practically no market share between them. Unless someone PAYS them to develop for less than 8% of the market, they will use resources for the other 75%+. Its just not good business to use resources on the small market. Also, MS can't even fix there own issues with OS. Why would developers support them if they won't support their own platform? Nokia is the only company supporting WP8. Also, if I were Nokia, I would go Android just to get MS moving. Its been 5 months since wp8 release, and eternity in mobile OS. The top 10 problems should be fixed. If MS wants support, they need to lead by example. "If you build it, they will come." Or something like that. MS hasn't built it yet. Its on stilts, leaning badly with life support failing and not a word out of them. So no, don't expect any support from big devs for a while.

    The older BB has an official Facebook app, and it gets updates occasionally. I'm sure when Z10 launches in the USA it will get its new Facebook app too.

    I don't get the "lack of market share" argument. Even with a smaller share you are still talking about millions of users. Putting an official app out shouldn't be that big of a deal. You are talking about a couple dudes sitting at a computer writing code and then once it gets writing, it is all down hill from there. Work on bug fixes and pending updates. A few guys to serve a couple million customers. And some say that isn't smart business.

    I could never respect Nokia if they go android way...
    And they would be crushed by samsung immediatly and lose their good reputation and probably would be involved into lots of patents wars.

    Yes but they either have to pull some people from the mobile development team (they will lose some focus from android and ios then, since there's bound to be a lot of bugs because it'll be a new project for them) or hire new mobile app developers for WP8 (they'll then lose a few hundred thousand per year for something that barely gets used in the whole spectrum of Smartphones).

    I really hate it, but I understand it. ALOT of websites and apps for other phones all are starting to look metro-ish and we're not getting them. Web Apps are enough for me, I wish we had a notification center because my official FB App would get a notification I can actually see then I can open the web app to look at whats going on and just click and back out of the main app to delete the notification. That's what I do now, I have my FB App and my FB Webapp pinned side by side. Open Webapp and read notification, back out then I just click my FB App once and back out.

    Forget the FB app. Download WebApps from the store then pin the Facebook web app to your home screen. It kills the app.

    All there doing is taking the mobile touch interface and sticking it on our desktop browser. Just use IE on your phone and go to touch.facebook.com

    sounds like a first world problem if you can't sacrafice a literal less than 2 seconds of your life for more features.

    you're essentially using two apps to do the same thing. It's like using one app to read emails, and another to reply to those emails.

    And we're discussing $600 phones here. Of course it's a first world problem. Aren't all problems discussed on WPCentral first world problems?

    MSFT not supporting! I think you have no clue about what you are talking.
    MSFT is paying Nokia 250 million USD quarterly for their support to WP and most probably this amount going to be increased.

    More over if you had read the news today that Nokia has some concern about if MSFT start producing WP and this won't happen unless MSFT seeing not enough work from the OEM in supporting WP, the same they did with OEM for PC when they start doing their own hardware "Surface"
