    I'd like to tell Microsoft that I am trying to view their facebook page about their Windows Phone 8, but their Facebook app on my Windows phone won't let me. How ironic.

    I wonder what their response would be....

    Thanks. But unfortunately,that link is over a year old. I think the current beta has gone stale.... I hope I'm wrong.
    No, I posted the link because it says that there is some collaboration between Microsoft and Facebook on the app.

    How do I get the app to use Miles instead of Kilometres, I am in the UK and all my other apps use Miles but anything tied into FB uses KM, for example checkin from the me tile

    Is there a setting somewhere I cannot find?

    I would be amazed if the app is handled inside Facebook like any other 3rd party app... however I have noticed that soem of my contacts dont show anymore from FB, but I think this is a bug.
    The whole app is a Big Bug,,, is a third party app, even thought Facebook might have collaborate with MS in making the app still the app is been seen as a 'Third Party', is not a but is just the way it is and it will be until it is officially developed by Facebook.

    The only issue I have is the very slow picture scrolling (swiping to the left or right in an album etc.).

    The old version was fine with it.

    The whole experience is poor compared to IOS and Android, I hope they can resolve this but two years on and nothing!...

    The biggest issue for me is still the amount of missing posts compared with the browser for example. I don't how it is on the other the other mobile platforms.

    Yeah me too. I've done a soft reset and re-installed the app but still nothing. It wasn't like this just a few days ago.

    Just a heads up, it seems to be working again.

    I've got a little problem with my Facebook WP 8.1 App (version 8.3.1.0). On my news feed it only shows headers from people who like other posts, for instance: "... likes a video" or "... commented on a post". I can't however see what actual post is liked and I can't click to go to the actual post.

    I think this is some setting which has to be changed, any ideas?

    Indeed. Here is a screenshot of the issue. One cannot interact with these posts: you just get to know that a friend of yours liked a photo but you are not informed which photo. picture1-1-.jpg

    Same for me. Best thing to do is send them an email using the in-app feedback function. I expect they're already aware of it but the more people that point out its annoyance, hopefully the quicker they'll fix it. Though at the pace of updates to the FB app in the past don't hold your breath.

    Same here. Oddly, this changed prior to my 920 getting the 8.1 update, and didn't seem to correspond to a downloaded update, so it's confusing.

    But frequently 2/3 of my comment wall is made up of these useless items, so it's made the app borderline unusable.

    It's the beta I guess. The other one should work fine.

    Apologies if this has been asked before but I've just been using the W8.1 app tonight for the first time in ages and just thought about this.

    With WP8.1.1 doesn't it run RT apps? Or like 90% of the APIs in RT apps? The Windows Facebook app turns out is pretty awesome and a great experience even when snapped to 320px wide. It resizes dynamically, seems to cover all the features I use on the website and has none of the faults the WP app has.

    I suppose with Threshold they'll just run the same app but surely even right now they could make the RT app run on Windows Phone 8.1.1 with little effort. Or if all the developer spiel is to be believed anyway.

    Just wondering out loud really... :)

    Until MS/FB solves those issues, I'm sticking to the mobile's version via IE, or better yet.. BLACK for Facebook. It's free and better in terms of its background is black @ battery friendly, seriously. Able to see/reply comments on photo albums, foursquare check-ins, and IG posts.

    Just one issue though.. image uploads. Doesn't seem to work properly.

    Image uploads don't work properly either on the FB app itself, so it wouldn't be a big difference :)

    I'm sick and tired of all these bugs. It's unbelievable that the mobile version of the website works better than an app!

    And don't even start me on Messenger. My battery discharging rate rises up to 42% per hour when I start chatting on the Messenger app!

    Oh it's September 9th today..... will I go back to iPhone?

    Agreed with the messenger app..that can get pretty crazy with battery consumption.

    I finally got fed up with the lack of features in Facebook beta for WP and uninstalled it. Not being able to edit posts/comments, not being able to see pictures/videos in comments, etc. was very frustrating. I was constantly going to the mobile web version. Now, I just have Facebook pinned to my UC Browser and access it that way.
