    Try to uninstall the app, soft reset your phone and reinstall the app again. If it doesn't improve probably you have a 1Gb ram phone and there isn't much you can do about it because the official Facebook app is a port from ios and is badly optimized.

    Really? The official Facebook app works fine on your phone without lag and crashes?

    App is a train wreck. Try the mobile website instead.

    Mobile doesn't allow video uploads. She'd have to go to desktop mode for the full Facebook site and upload it from there

    All three osmeta ports - Facebook, Messenger and Instagram I found work better after a hard reset after every o/s update and run on a clean phone without restore (except text messages)..

    However that is just my personal experience with my L930.

    I just tested video upload in mobile version and it works.

    I concur, videos via mobile website does work however it depends heavily on your internet connection speed be it WiFi or Cellular.

    The app has been a train wreck for some time. There's been a facebook app for how many years now and we still cannot edit our profile information from it? Ridiculous.

    For those who have trouble with the Facebook app, you can try using Slim Social for Facebook.
    It's basically a web wrapper but it works and does not crash and is about 100% faster.

    It may be a 3rd party app but Windows Mobile has always thrived with 3rd party alternatives like 6tag etc.

    It does not have notification and people hub integration neither, the main reason I use the facebook app.

    Ya its actually appalling so bad it should be taken down and fixed. I have installed it, uninstalled it reinstalled it, soft reset, moved it to sd, installed to device and hard reset the phone. Ya I don't care Snapchat isn't in our platform but no working Facebook app is just an insult to us who pay over 300 euro, dollar and pound for our windows phone!!!!!

    Never thought id say this but im thinking of jumping ship. The Sony Xperia X is a gorgeous phone I just don't want to turn into one of those Windows Phone haters. I have defended the OS as much as I can but this is maybe the final straw ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”

    All Facebook's attempts are utter garbage. Crash, lag, crash, crash, crash, lag, lag. It's pure unusable. And it's stupidly big. 200mb or something!

    Oddly their 'desktop' app is actually pretty good. I use it a lot on my Win 10 tablet as it's nicely touch friendly.

    Instagram on the other hand works reasonably. Key I have found with that, and a number of other apps that crash a lot, is to install the app on the phone memory. Facebook's apps however still crash all the time in phone memory. Also it fails to move to phone memory from SD, so have to uninstall, set default app storage to phone, install it, then reset default app storage to SD (as my 640 doesn't have enough space in phone memory for many apps).

    Annoyingly Microsoft's own Facebook app was way better, at least in reliability. It worked, it didn't crash all the time (just some times), was useable, it synced contacts and calendars, had notifications and live tile. Okay it lacked modern features, but was useable. The mobile web site generally works but can be clunky at times and uploading photos and videos is very hit and miss.

    Oh, and latest FB app now requires 2GB phone ram!

    Microsoft should just ban the bloody app.

    I also find the Facebook app to be woefully lacking when compared to there other options on Android or IOS. Has anyone else had any issues with Videos in your timeline not Auto Playing? It is one of my favorite features when I can watch the video automatically without sound and choose if I want to open it. I see the option for Auto Play in settings but it has never worked for me on my Lumia 950 using the Fast Ring builds.
