    I almost never use the app, I go with the browser 99% of the time. But I like to have my phone connected (with notifications turned off) via the app for all of the contact info. The store is telling me it requires hardware that my 830 doesn't have. It will let me download if though, but not let me review it or rate it. What is my phone lacking to run a freaking FB app?

    Ah, just noticed the 2 GB requirement. Neat.

    Try a third party app called SlimSocial. I hear that it is pretty good.

    Agree, the you must try Slim Social for Facebook.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/slimsocial-for-facebook/9nblggh4vmr8?ocid=9nblggh4vmr8_ORSEARCH_Bing

    It's a web wrapper but it's zippy and does not crash

    The FB app is a steaming pile of dog crap burning in a dumpster fire adjacent to a train wreck. Does that about cover it?

    I'd post that as a review on the Store, but I'm not allowed to review as my device does not meet the min 2gb requirement.

    I've been using Slim Social for a few days. Don't really see any advantage over the browser really. Plus, I can't delete comments or save pictures using it.

    Neither are true.
    Deleting own comments is straight forward. We can't delete a friends comment, but it can't be done in the official app either.

    For pictures, there are two ways
    1. Tap on the picture, it opens down into a smaller size where you should find the option to "View full size". You'll able to save the photos then.
    2 If tapping on the picture doesn't work, then tap on the "comment", again it goes to "view full size" mode..
    3. To save FB video, tap on it. Look for the three dots (bottom right) and follow the prompts to save video...

    Nope. Gives me the edit/delete option. Tapping either one does nothing. Holding on a pic, even "full size", does nothing also.

    I guess the bottom line is all things being equal (which they're actually not in this case) I'd rather save a bookmark than install an app.

    You're almost there if you can open the pictures in full size
    Look for the three dots

    Bingo, I was trying the press and hold method. Now if I could just delete my comments. I sometimes have commenters remorse.

    Glad to help out.
    Long press doesn't work in slim social. Dev's design choice, I suppose.
