    Honestly I really don't think Micrsoft has a dedicated Windows Phone team thus having the OS lag behind in so many areas and no real intense push BUTTT it seems they may be working on that seeing they have been posting a lot of jobs for windows phone. I think an easier solution would be to just buy Nokia and have Nokia as it's dedicated windows phone dept... lord knows Nokia has put more effort in wp than MS.



    Everyone tweet @joebelfiore on Twitter asking what is happening, as he's ignored mine.
    he never replies to any real questions (ben the pc guy doesn't either) unless it's about marketing hype or already announced apps/services.

    The WP8 might be getting the update, it doesn't say it is not being updated
    My ATIV S came with Portico GDR1 Update first!

    I can't wait to see new next update GDR2 soon! 😎

    Suffering from the same issues, it's an app bug/issue. Hopefully an update will fix this annoying issue

    I use the mobile web and desktop versions of Facebook these days on the phone. If I do use the app, it's only for check-ins that you want to tag your friends with. If checking in by yourself, it's much easier to use the People Hub.
    Yes, the refresh bugs me as well: that's off. However, sometimes I view my likes, and out of the blue, the page just goes blank on me. Dunno why. Again, mobile and desktop pages work the best for Facebook. Too bad I'm also accustomed to the People Hub.

    Microsoft have neglected the current Facebook app, and have made no announcement o tell their customers what is actually going on with the app. The other non-official apps have no notifications so they are useless to me, I just want an app, whether designed by Microsoft or Facebook that works, with all the features available in ios/android version and where I get instant notifications, its annoying when chatting to someone and you don't get a notification that a message has been sent to you.

    Tweet sent, lets keep telling them, maybe they will listen, either that or i will vote with my feet and leave the OS that likes to ignore its customer base

    You are going to leave because of a FB app? I don't believe it and I bet they don't as well.

    But there is A facebook app, and realistically Facebook has made some pretty awful apps that never drove people away. Mobile doesn't make them much money so they don't put much money back into mobile in general.

    They are doing it now. The new redesign of the main site is built around the interface of the mobile app.

    You don't think people ( me included ) will vote with their feet, if the OS developers don't pull their socks up.mmmmmmm, do you work for blackberry.......I'm sure thats what they thought and oh yes, now they are struggling to hold on to their customer base...Not listening and ignoring people is the downfall of any business. No I may not leave straight away, I would more likely choose to go back to a more developed OS, when my contract is due for renewal. To add many people have a cooling off period and would this to try the most common apps, if they suck, they will change their handset......SIMPLES........

    There is no point there being a Facebook app when it works the way it does, with even the most simple basic needed feature set being missing, it isn't rocket science and Microsoft is clearly ignoring its customers with regards to the Facebook app, and for that reason they're going to have a lot of angry customers and eventually people will give up and move on! Windows Phone doesn't need this, they need every single customer they can get.

    Microsoft pull your thumb out, and fast!

    Facebook app on WP8 is terrible. And m.facebook.com is a lot nicer on a WebKit-based browser than the IE browser (as are many other sites and services). So red marks on both accounts. I tried WP8 on a Lumia 920 back in January... sorry to see that nothing has improved since then. And yes, my terrible experience with FB was a strong factor in my decision to return it.

    i dont even care there isnt a FB app...WP already delivers basic integrated FB funcionalities (news feeds, status post, messenger) and whenever i need to like check one of my FB groups, i go to the mobile website and it serves me just fine!
    aw yeah, also i can share pictures to FB directly from my album, just like in Android...
    so it's not like WP doesent support FB at all...it is integrated with the OS! and covers all the basics! its just pplz who can't get used to a new way of using FB!

    the only problem really are notifications, but it's something that can be solved with upcoming updates...so if you can't get used to new ways of doing stuff, just go back to Android and that stupid buggy app!

    seriously now...am i the only one who uses people hub+mobile website and is just fine with it?

    I don't have the link handy...sorry about that BUT, I read recently that the slow erosion has already begun with Facebook. As with MySpace it begins as a trickle and then gains more and more momentum as people stop using it. I'm not saying Facebook is going to go the way of the DoDo BUT, the articles I've read are showing that more and more teens are moving away from Facebook 1) because it isn't cool anymore and 2) their parents use it. While this may/may not be the delay in MS for updating it... probably not but I think over the next year or so we'll see a very different landscape. I make the current app work...it's not great but I still use a laptop/desktop for my video work so I can keep up on that. I'm not one of those people that has to check status updates every 2-3mins.

    I don't think most of us here need to check our status updates every 2 minutes either, BUT when I get messages from friends or family overseas and I got get any sort of notification about it, its trouble for me as due to the different times I don't always get to talk to them in real time.

    Been toying around with how to get the FB app more in line with iPhone & Android versions and at the same time stick to the horizontal scroll style of WP. This is what I've got so far...

    So Facebook has been updated today, so far notice absolutely no changes, others are reporting slight speed increases.

    4 months since the last update and nothing new added, nothing new added on the previous update either.

    Anyone notice anything new?

    I think the biggest concern people has was the notifications?

    Mine have started working for the past couple weeks a lot better than it was before.

    What other improvements are you looking for?

    I said this in comment to the main post. Repeating here.

    - The app need to lose its metro design for its own good IMO. Facebook has its own design language and app should just follow it. Just like Twitter. Uniform interfaces in all ecosystems.
    - Needs top stories sorting.
    - Needs FB messenger and chat with instant notifications.
    - Share and tag people in comments and posts.

    These are just few I have. I'll keep using the Facebook touch interface or Social Scout until they fix the above mentioned things.

    We really do need Facebook Messenger and notifications need improvement. The look doesn't bother me, I prefer it. Just needs some tweaking and basic features need adding.
