    Uhm, multiple people have gotten the update already, I even saw tweets about the new app. Replies #4 and #5 from Kyle Stilkey even contain screenshots. How can you think this is a joke?

    Perhaps it's not openly available yet.
    I think it was pulled from the store actually...

    My 1520 went crazy after installing this update. In the store it shows the app is installed and gives me the open button.......hit the button and nothing! I go look at my apps and it's not there. I've rebooted a few times and see no changes. I can't uninstall then reinstall. Hell I can't even get the older version of FB beta.

    The app is still very buggy, might have been pulled from the store. When I set the scaling to 175% (the lowest) I noticed that the app changes layout to adapt for more content and also has buttons for feedback (smile and frown respectively) but that made it even buggier. We'll see if it gets updated in the future or not.

    Nope.

    I just noticed that even "Shake to refresh feed" is gone.

    In the About menu, below the version number, there is a "Check for updates now" button, but so far it claims the app is up to date.

    It has been pulled from the Store I think. It has many more features compared to the previous version but it crashed a lot for me. After finishing resetting my phone today, I can't see it anymore. Hopefully it would come back soon more polished and stable.

    There are more animations compared to the old app, and it's a teeeeny bit more fluid, but sometimes it hangs for no reason and must be force closed. I even had to soft-reset my phone once because everything became non-responsive.

    What really is important is that it really is in an advanced development stage as you've shown us. It is coming for w10m release hopefully!!

    Are the news feeds more identical to the website now? Before there were friends I couldn't tag at all in comments or anything I'm guessing since it was a third party app and maybe they nocked this party apps on their privacy settings is this fixed as well?

    More screenshots:

    Just showing some more interface elements from the new app. Functionally not much has changed, but there are new animations that are pretty fluid (though populating the UI with elements is still a bit slow).

    Navigating to groups somehow manages to crash the app every time, either immediately or after a few seconds.

    I had the same problem with Facebook messenger but I found the solution: Uninstall it in Storage (or storage sense).

    There is still no landscape layout when you rotate the screen, by the way, and I really can't think of any excuse why they are not allowing it. When I set the display scaling to 175%, I already get the UI that is designed for bigger, wider screens. I will try to post screenshots of that mode even though it's very buggy. (To be honest, the problem might lie also in the OS: at 175%, the task switcher does get the phablet layout, but only appears the first time you long press the back button, afterwards nothing happens - as if a task switcher were never there).

    When you're creating a new post, are you able to selectively customize the privacy of the post? Such as, making a post and making it viewable by all friends except for these two guys I work with.

    Nope, just pre-defined audiences and your friend lists are presented as post privacy options.

    More screenshots at 175% display scaling level on my Lumia 920:

    The big-screen interface I was talking about. There are lots of bugs in this UI, e.g. the menu slides in from the left but most of the entries take you nowhere upon tapping, the status bar on top is always there, overlapping with the app's top bar, the Messenger button is cropped, but even tapping on it does nothing.

    wp_ss_20151017_0002.png
    The crashes that I mentioned. Quite buggy, even though animations have been surprisingly fluid all the time.

    wp_ss_20151017_0003.png
    In-place search bar for big-screened devices. Somehow it's faster than the regular search that occupies the entire window. The font is kinda screwed up, even when I set the scaling level back to 225%.

    wp_ss_20151017_0004.png
    More UI bugs, the status bar became suddenly opaque and the feed randomly stopped at a certain point not very far down, leaving below a lot of empty space.

    Now I think it is clear why this version was pulled from the Store, it's still a rough work-in-progress.
