    The WP Facebook is missing one important feature the is a show stopper for me. Share a post from your feed on a page you manage. I manage a few facebook pages and regularly share posts from my personal face feed. It works on the Android and IOS facebook apps no problem. I can't figure out how to do this with the WP app. I've even tried using touch.facebook.com from the browser. No go.

    Any ideas?

    I love the WP OS and hardware but honestly the lack of app features is what will get me to go back to android. For no reason other than that because I really dislike the Android touchwiz on my Note 4.

    Why Microsoft developing the app that should be developed by Facebook?
    It's a joint development between Microsoft & facebook.

    Tbh, Microsoft shouldn't be developing the app anymore. Twitter can access the people hub too. Why aren't Microsoft giving the tools to Facebook instead. If they did thin the beginning, we wouldn't be missing out on features such as Facebook trends, news articles, apps linking to the Facebook app for game invites, searching for topics, smart search (search for people by city, address, place of work etc). At least we managed to get picture comments (in late 2014). With Windows 10, the APIs give all the developers the same tools Microsoft are allowed to use which means access to parts of the OS like the people hub, phone, calendar, Cortana interests, Xbox, accounts, emails etc. Just look at the ratings and reviews in the store. Microsoft shouldn't develop the app anymore. Facebook should.
    What makes you think Facebook would be better at developing the App? Microsoft is investing in having a good App and they understand the OS better. Just look at Instagram or Vine or Snapchat...

    Let's not ruin Facebook. Lol. Keep doing what your doing MS.

    Also, FB has a 3 star rating on Android and iOS, as well. Same as WP.

    You can find this complaint on every single platform. If you can't, you're not trying hard at all.

    Also, every official FB App defaults to Top Stories, not most recent, which is probably your real issue.

    Are they "liked" posts? Cause they only show when they were originally posted, not when they were liked.

    Well, assuming the App is like the Android App...

    I'm sure they were liked..i guess but my issue is...everytime get on facebook thru the app, posts are from al time even from yesterday! When I hold down to refresh post ,I get Radom posts from, 8 hrs ago,yesterday,than 4hrs ago etc. Its so annoying there must either be another setting im missing or hopefully another facebook app I'm not sure. People hub seems spot on!

    Well, it defaults back to Top Stories every time the App is fully closed. It's a Facebook thing, not a Windows thing. All platforms do that, unfortunately.

    I would just like to end this thread by saying, Facebook is one of the apps that need to be ported from android and iOS using the new tools with Windows 10. The Facebook experience on WP is lacking compared to the others.
    Yeah it's a shame that the biggest app on WP is so much worse than on the competing platforms. Gives people a really bad impression of WP right off the bat...

    Is there a good 3rd party Facebook app? Twitter has Tweetium and Instagram has 6tag but I can't find anything better than the MS version which sucks because the MS version seems to need some updating badly.

    Facebook has so much functionality that I think it's virtually impossible to make a good third party app. The only one's I've seen in the store are web wrappers. Fortunately the FB mobile website is excellent at least.

    Facebook reorders the posts, sometimes between your visits. This is a constant source of frustration for those of us who don't like missing posts from close friends.

    And none of the options on their site allow you to fix it, no matter what the options say.

    Most of the people use smartphone only for facebook,WhatsApp and camera.
    I use it for things like... Phone calls and texts. I play games. I use the search a lot. I use the calendar. This old technology called email ( we use it for things like work). I only have 2 phone numbers memorized. But I guess I can just get a flip phone and carry around a note pad. If all you use a smartphone for is the camera and a couple apps, then you are missing a lot of potential for the device...

    In fact, I don't have WhatsApp.. Or a snap chat... Or twittr. Not because I'm "old", but because I have no use for them. I have very recently been considering deleting my facebook just because its a time waster anymore.
