    - Can’t filter out games stuff of news feed
    This times 9,000!!! I have lots of filters and groups set up for Facebook, but the minute I step foot into the WP app it all goes away.

    That being said, I have noticed (as others have mentioned) it has FINALLY STOPPED auto-refreshing and jumping straight to the top of the news feed randomly, no matter how far you were from the top. That right there at least makes putting up with all the game stuff, random graphical quotes, etc tolerable... since after a minute of scrolling past it to get to some good content, you don't have to worry about it jumping back to the top and telling you that you're a sucker for trying :P

    The baked in Facebook chat is fine for me though... comes in as a text message, which helps me feel closer to my friends in other countries.

    So the Facebook app just got an update. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand no, still no notifications for me. The one and ONLY thing a Facebook client should do, is still not available on Windows Phone.

    If you don't get notifications, here is the email of the app developers:
    "fbwp@microsoft.com" <fbwp@microsoft.com>

    PLEASE, take 2 minutes of your time and make sure they know that we are not satisfied. Make them know what doesn't work and what needs fixing.

    Will only take 2 minutes, if we can get 100 messages sent it will make a huge impact.

    EDIT for people who clearly think the way they use a phone is the way everybody must use it: The FB integration in the phone is good but it's lacking, for example how do I get messages from people? I have to be online on chat. What if I do not want to be online in chat? I get no messages. THIS, is why we need a FB app that has notifications working. You do not get messages unless you are online on Facebook, and some people don't want to, it's that simple.

    This isn't a windows phone problem. I get a toast notification every time someone likes my stuff or comments on something.

    i use it as a "hey, I got something" but just dismiss it and open it up on the Me tile since I don't really like the app.

    I hate our facebook app. It is absoloutly nothing comapred to the one they have on ios. I just use the mobile explorer on my phone and manualy go to facebook dot com. The mobile web version is a thousand times better than our crappy app.

    Game posts in the news feed will NEVER be fixed in the MS WP8 app unless Facebook changes their API limitations for 3rd party apps..period...ever! Same with the feed not being the same as the website, some friends posts not being visible, etc.

    but you appear online all the time... no "mobile device" icon as you get on other platforms

    thus people assume that you are in front of your computer and start writing tons of stuff ;) and especially expect a reply immediately

    I really don't get the need for a stupid app if u have SNS integration to the OS itself.
    One of the things because of which I have abandoned iPhone for Lumia was exactly this. I do not need any stupid apps, everything is in the system. Ok, let me be honest, I am just a basic FB, Twitter, LinkedIn user, but for the basic stuff, the built-in hub is more then sufficient.
    And I get all the notifications, just without a sound, but that is also okay, because, I cannot be without a glance to my Lumia920 more than an hour :D

    I uninstalled the Facebook app last week. I find myself using the baked in features the most and then the mobile touch.facebook.com for sharing. I really wish we had the baked in feature to share a contacts post via the baked in method and also accept new friends.

    I don't see the need for a fb app but I guess we are all different. I think fb is nicely baked into the OS for my needs and for the rest the mobile website works just fine.

    Yeh those are the only things I would like to see added to the built in features. I'm on my computer enough to accept friend requests once a day.

    I've noticed that I don't see all the post made. By that I mean that some friends have to go to they're settings and do something so I can see what the put from my peoples hub. As for the app, it just doesn't show everything that the mobile site or touch site shows.

    Is ut only me or does other experience that when you do a check in with this app. There is no map on your location when you see the post in the Facebook desktop site? All my friends with Android or iOS have a map showing your spot. With the Microsoft Facebook app and bing map service there is no map? Or is it only me? And sometimes a can not even update my status and connect a picture. It says I can not do this right now...

    put it in another way? why dont you ask them to update the people's hub anyways, it does seem that it has more features that are still pending on FB app. The only thing you rant about People hub is the invisible status, while you have a list for the FB app.

    Yeah that update should at least have brought some major changes... It's been a while since the app was updated so I wonder if it will ever be on par with Android and iOS' versions. Is it that hard for Microsoft to develop a good Facebook app? Not really... Its a very small task compared to building a whole OS.

    I don't use the official app... It feels like its been written in 2007 when apps were starting to be cool, but it wasn't quite that.

    The FB app on WP is nice looking BUT is completely useless... even BB07 has a better FB app.


    For now I just pinned the mobile website to my home screen (sucks not having notifications though)
