no update

this is the app billion users use on their windows, and FB doesn't give a shi* to improve it,if FB doesn't care about its child , it'll need a brain.

It's ok other than a couple things.

I think visually it is fine but functionally it fails. When a major feature like messenger causes the whole program to crash, you know there is a major problem with the programming. It doesn't matter if I click on a message on the side bar or if I pick a conversation from the little facebook menu at the top, either way the whole program crashes. I could just view it in a browser, but isn't that the point of having this app? So I don't have to open a browser? You guys need to dig into the program code and fix this.

Awful - featureless, crashes, evidently abandoned

App hasn't been updated in ages. Crashes repeatedly when messages are opened, making it impossible to use for FB messages. Impossible to set view settings reliably. Does not accept chat settings or respect chat settings set on the website. Even the mobile web browser version has more features. Uninstalling.

Windows 10 functionality please!

Windows 10 is great, this app, however, is not. Too bad there's really a big market for easy facebook management on the desktop. Including messenger and fanpage functionality.

Pretty good, but doesn't send images in chat correct

I generally use facebook as a messenger, and my buddies and I share screenshots a lot. With this app, I can paste a screenshot from my clipboard into a message and it will show up in the dialogue box, but when I try to send it the app only sends the WORD "Image". It doesn't send the actual image. Would really like this to be fixed.

No Windows 10 optimization!

This app hasn't been updated for Windows 10, so it doesn't mesh well with Action Center. One place where it works well with Windows 10 is that the app window can be resized and used for chat/messaging features. However, don't expect to received notifications consistently when new messages arrive. If you're on Windows 10 and want the full experience of how incomplete and Windows 8.1-heavy this app is, go to Hamburger (lame) > Settings. Once the Charms Bar (?!) pops out, click Account Settings, then sit back and relax while the app opens up a browser, loads facebook.com, and asks you to log in so that you can finish something the app should be able to do within itself. Thanks, Facebook!

I'd rather use the web to get into Faebook

It never shows the current timeline, always yesterday's or the day before. It also blocks certain pictures on there and it just looks like a blank post. HATE IT!!!!

Would like a better one

The text in the app is too small.. the font size in my laptop and overall is normal.. but in the app is miniature. Also it lacks from the :status.. watching, reading, etc that Facebooks has. Id wish they could change the font size!!

Performance Bug

With the Windows 10 app you can't use the directional buttons on the keyboard to navigate through the page. If you press down to scroll down it will, but keeps jumping back to the top only allowing you to scroll so far before doing so.
