    Same here man... I have a windows phone since 2012. Been waiting for this update for 2years... And they can't fix the biggest problem with the app. They wanna catch up with ios and android like this? And don't tell me the "os is young bla bla". It's 3 years now... In 2010 Android and ios had an okay Facebook app... Not a piece of crap like this. Sorry guys but that was too much for me. I'm out.
    Yeah me too, I am out the next time I get the chance probably going to iOS... Facebook is a big for me I can't take this ****.

    What facebook commands are you using with Cortana? I've tried "update facebook status" , what's up with a friend status nothing happens in not getting any Cortana integration with the new beta

    I tried it as well and it worked fine for my wife and I. Just hold down search key and then say Facebook, What's up with (Insert name)
    . Opens facebook beta and takes you to their feed. Great step in the right direction.

    If you're not satisfied, try JDB for Facebook:

    It's way more functional

    I read a lot of posts like "some stories/posts are missing". Can you give some examples? Because I don't think I had something similar.
    And btw, the app is still BETA, the final one should include "fixes and improvements" (c)
    I don't know about them but personally I'm seeing more posts in the app compared to the website....lol

    On the app, it goes from 10mins ago > 12mins ago > 16 > 20
    On the site, it goes from 10mins ago > 20....it's missing 12mins and 16mins posts...both are posts from pages i've liked.

    ​I'm not complaining..

    With yesterday's update the Look and UI has totally changed..I am really loving the app and I don't have any issue with viewing my frnd's post.You just need to change the setting from top stories to most recent. It worked for me. Now they should update all the features which are there are on the android and iOS version of Facebook.
    Here's what they need to update
    1)Review the tags from the app.
    2) we could edit the profile and also the about me section should be organised and show full details..Its very cluttered right now.
    3) View the photo comments.
    4) we could give the mood status like feeling,watching,reading status from the app..It really sucks to open IE all the time to give those status.
    5)We could change the Profile and cover picture directly..
    Lastly thank you very much for bringing this update.I appreciate your good word and looking forward to more updates

    To me it's the most important thing missing in this app since it was released, post are not filtered... I can see every news from acquaintances and close friends as well... It's quite frustrating! Till they add this (basic) feature it doesn't matter how smooth is the app, it remains pretty useless!

    I also doubt but changing it to most recent from the app solved my problems.
    Why they removed the option I don't know..

    There is no proper news feed in the new update and no option for top stories and the feed shows feeds from pages i liked and not much of my friends' updates.
    PS: though the older version had option for top stories it didn't work then too.

    Does anyone else think the notifications should be the next thing shown when swiping from the right? I don't get many friend requests anymore :P

    They could just have hide the link to the friend request under the More tab.

    Source: "On wanting more app updates... FB + Skype are coming. Lock screen still coming! 512MB SS .. coming. And a couple new apps too."

    Dunno that equates to a "big update is coming to the FB app in June" though.
    I stand corrected, yesterday's update to the Facebook Beta app was the most substantial since the shift away from Metro UI Design.

    I am really pleased with the performance and look wise of this new Beta, they seemed to have finally nailed it after 4 years, took them a while, but it still acts as a 3rd party app with all these game notification requests and posts on my news feed about someone posting happy birthday on another persons wall. fix that please.

    The new app is a big improvement. Significantly faster, and smoother operation. The UI changes feel fresh and the transition animations are a nice touch!

    But, would a transparent tile have been too much to ask? Keep the iconic white "f" and nothing else. Maybe a "Facebook Blue" outline on the "f" if necessary. Maybe FB won't allow it due to the obvious brand connection to the colour.

    Anyhoo, it would be nice.

    While I'm at it... And it's a WP OS thing more than a FB thing, but I find the tile notification-count circle on pinned items to be rather cheap looking and incongruous (i.e. looks like iOS) with the rest of the design language at work.
    The obvious answer would be to change the circle to a square..or a tile-within-a tile
    Pushing this a little further...add a tile-flip animation every 4-5 seconds to provide a visual cue.. and/or drop the static black background and have the count-tile be transparent and only the numbers would flip.

    As a last, out of left-field, suggestion...what about ditching the black circle, show the notification-count, but add a slight fade/pulse, or shimmer animation as a visual cue?

    Hello,

    this is a small issue but I thought I would raise it none the less. When using the official Facebook app for Windows 8 (currently rocking a Nokia Lumia 925) ... I've noticed that most of my news feed consists of 'company' or 'business' pages that I've liked instead of actual friends/people I have on my friends list. However when I load the browser version of Facebook on I.Explorer this is the opposite.

    Could anyone shed any light please? I've tried adjusting news feed settings etc, doesn't seem to work?

    Thanks, Luke.
    Many people are reporting this. You're not the only one. Don't know a good fix yet.

    Two years I have searched, no fix unless Facebook themselves develop the app I think.

    Well we finally got the new facebook beta app. It's all nice and well but missing one major feature: tile counts for "Likes" the option was there, but not anymore. Anybody having the same problem?
