    They want anything you can find wrong reported. So put it through it paces with everything you would like it to do and report it!

    reported the reverse order of comments...it needs to match all other FB apps and website views and be oldest at top, newest on bottom.

    i sent myself a few messages from another account 45min ago, no notification has arrived so far (you don't get poke notifications either by the way)

    At least now we know that they will read our feedback. So please report this too!
    Thanks for the heads up, will report it.

    It's on a slower side especially when going to posts, photos. Swiping between the main profile side bar, main window is fast. Will post more later..

    The new app is awesome, fast, fluidic and surpasses both ios and android version!! But why MS is ditching Metro style! The app can still be awesome in metro style! They are the uniqueness about windows phone!!

    It should be for 7.5/.8 because Facebook made a refresh version of their app exclusive for gingerbread android phones

    I noticed this directly from the Windows Phone Blog post:

    "If, on the other hand, you want to see where we and the Facebook team are headed..."

    Hopefully this means that Facebook is now directly involved with the Windows Phone App development

    I agree. I wish they had at least kept the banner image at the top from the other FB app. at least give it it's own style, but with all the abilities as this current beta app.

    Wow. SOOO much better than the original WP model. I dont care about apps looking or working like the iPhone/Android counterparts...however this App is a huge step forward. It's cleaner, more fluid, easier to navigate and more streamlined. Im very happy...already removed my old FB app lol.

    They shouldn't bring back the banner image or break any of the FB's internal UI conventions.

    In this very specific case, since FB is a critical platform app, FB's own UI conventions >> WP/Metro's design conventions.

    Cross quoting myself from another thread:

    Some facts (some may find them to be opinions but they're really not):

    1. Humans recognise icons, symbols and images more than text
    2. Humans respond much better to colour as an identity marker
    3. Metro wastes a LOT of space (in the People apps of other platforms, you can see about 10 people without scrolling, in the WP app, you see.......2)
    4. Metro is very radical and does not lend itself to the navigation paradigms of every single app, product or service
    5. UI design on most other platforms is more or less standardised whereas re-doing everything for Metro/WP takes longer
    6. MS knows and has indeed accounted for a lot of this in their guidelines, they are OK with things not being all large text and pivot/panorama based
    7. First class FB experience is more important that conforming with Metro UI. In a nutshell, FB>Metro design
    Also, the hubs promise has more or less broken down. There are very few things in the People hub that competing platforms haven't caught up with and the Messaging hub is a pale shadow of the BB Hub.

    The fundamental and specific issue here is that the FB app done in Metro was not only lacking in functionality but felt alien (to FB users perspective not WP/Metro users).

    There are certain apps and services which I would call Super Apps/Services or Platform Apps/Services. The OS exists to enable them and to cater to them, NOT the other way around. As much as some might hate social networking, sharing, FB etc It is a critical and possibly the most important part of the mobile smartphone experience.

    Such apps (FB, Whatsapp) and their needs always take precedence over the OS. Their UI consistency *between* apps on different platforms is far more important that UI consistency with Metro. This is WPCentral, everyone here is a WP enthusiast and would look at this from a WP perspective. But essentially, what it boils down to is WP and Metro as an OS and device exist to enable us to get to Facebook/Instagram/Angry Birds/Whatsapp/Email etc. These Super apps can/should do whatever is in their best interests.

    When you look at it from a App/Service>OS in terms of importance perspective. It all makes sense.
    Now 100s of millions of FB users are going to open the WP FB app and take to it like duck to a water. Earlier, they would be disgusted with the "metro" app.
    This is undoubtedly a good thing for WP
    This new FB app, its design, direction, attempts to maintain UI consistency with other FB apps/sites on other platforms is a very very good thing for WP.
    No one will switch TO WP just because it has a better banner image
    People WILL switch AWAY from WP if some of their core apps do not have the requisite functionality or are non-intuitive

    I saw this app was blocked in the background tasks. I uninstalled and reboot the phone, reinstalled and I got toast notification just now. For me resharng and tagging is spotty, but other than that it works great and faster. I wonder if it was being blocked slowed it down?

    FB's background task is ONLY related to the lockscreen images since FB has proper push notification servers that don't require background tasks to work. You will see this if you enable the FB lockscreen and then check the background task for FB.

    So I guess I need the lock screen enabled for toast? Ok then that is fine.

    Its not listed in the regular list of background tasks, only under Advanced where you cant block or unblock. Sounds like your install was messed up somehow.

    Edit: looks like the proper explanation was posted.

    Fine with me, still rolling toast notifications in and I am liking it. Just small bugs in it and really this is a great Facebook upgrade.

    Oh yeah Facebook Beta is running as background task to so it was all a glitch in the install. Reboot fixes all!
