    On the 5S when I load Facebook for the first time while not in background memory it takes about 4 seconds for the app to load up compared to say Instagram or Twitter. Has it always been this slow on initial loading?

    It's hit or miss for me. I just did the update and found it to take a while to load.

    It's always been one of the slower apps

    I've had an issues with clicking on pictures and links lately. Other than that I'm used to how slow it is.

    Facebook is terrible. Then they change things and it makes it worse then it was previously.

    I've never had a problem with the Facebook app, I just don't like the new "auto play videos" in the newest update.

    The Facebook app just plain sucks. It's always been slow, and I hate the fact that I can't set the app to start at "recent" rather than news feed.

    Amen! Probably the most annoying thing about the app.....other than the slowness.....and not always getting notifications, etc., etc., etc...

    The Facebook app has always been hit or miss for me. I haven't updated to the newest release because I don't want videos playing automatically in my news feed.

    Other than that, I have noticed that since the iOS7 update I have to log back in every couple of days. It says "Session Expired"; I have never had that happen before.

    I also don't like how the news feed is not chronological. Scrolling down, I will see things that happened 5 minutes ago, followed by something from 2 days ago, followed by something that happened "just now".

    Which begs the question.....how can a company with as much money as Facebook have such a crappy iOS app?

    I hate to do this with a penguins fan...but I agree! Haha...just messing around. Off topic: I like the new stadium series jerseys better than their current roads, but ditch the "vegas gold" already!! Bring back the Super Mario yellow/gold and black!

    Not to hijack the thread, but I don't care for the yellow/black jerseys. Too much like the Bruins, IMO.

    Anyway, the FB app is just so bad. Instead of adding stupid features like playing videos, maybe they should fix what's been broken for years?

    Agreed. Less features, run better. But then, that's iOS all over.

    He was saying that with less features the app would run better, just like iOS...
