Doesn't work sometimes. Limitations.

Works well for the most part, sometimes my feed wont appear and you can't call. Apart from that you cant search up people or look at profiles (you can click to see but it wont load at all). The browser loads extremely slow for me and I can't right click to open the link in my browser, without clicking on it and then opening in browser and then exiting.

Should still be in beta to be honest.

Gave it a go but it really does need a lot of work. I used it for about 5 minutes and so far there are about 10 issues that need addressing, so I don't think it is ready to be released on the Store yet. Straight away I had issues with the sound being very out of sync with videos. I did like the scroll but in the browser you can use J and K to scroll from post to post - seems that's not possible in this version. Pictures viewed straight in the feed crop the image, but it should shrink the image. Comment chains do not load so you miss a lot of the thread without knowing as there is no 'previous comments' link. After reading other reviews I have come to the conclusion that there is no point in using this product until it's a bit more fine tuned. Gold star for trying though.

Less efficient and useful than the browser site

There's not really any point in getting this app. You may as well bookmark the website and just use it in your browser. This app has no scroll bar, so the only way to scroll is with arrow keys, and sometimes it decides not to cooperate. When in splitscreen mode, sharing the screen with another application, it cuts off part of the UI, rather than just condensing it to fit. Notifications and links are kind of wonky. It's not atrocious, and I'd like to keep it if these problems were fixed. But for now, it's a pass.

Nice idea but need improvement.

When I try to reply to people from pages I manage, the message box size is fixed. If the message is long, it is very difficult to scroll up or down. Also, I hit send and my message doesn't show up. Even when the other party hits send, I don't see the message. I get a notification later, on my profile. But it is cumbersome to go back and forth just to see a message while a refresh window would do the job.

Neutral

Same as website essentially. However, I find it way more efficient to use the app in windows, than a RAM hog browser for the same result. Especially while gaming and Alt-Tabbing. Otherwise would have been rated lower.

Um... No...

used it for about 5 min and could not stand it anymore. i understand people are creatures of habit but you are completely changing facebook's layout. I'm not that upset about that but I am about how slow it is. even to do simple tasks. and I'm on a pretty beefy computer with blazing internet speed!

Sorry Microsoft, try again

This app is very slow, especially launching. It is difficult to make comments because screens don't size properly and you can't navigate to other windows without loosing video/audio stream. I've used Android app on my phone and find it much better than this App on Windows 10. I'm removing it and going back to the browser version. Browser access to Facebook is much better.

Slower and less functional than just using the website

The app basically shows the same thing as the website, but with a few minor visual changes, and in a way that somehow takes three times as long to load. It has no support for a “snapped”/sidebar mode; if you shrink the window to any size remotely below average, it just cuts off the rest of the page. Additionally, unlike the website, clicking any of the Messenger buttons just tells you to install the Messenger app. The only real advantage to using the Windows Store app over anything else is the live tile; for me, that is not worth it.

What happened??

I lost the ability to control the left menu. I set my preferences such as Most Recent but it always defaults back. Better but ... It is too slow to load. Way too much white space on the screen and no way to enlarge the fonts. Freezes occasionally. The Share charm option that requires the app open is annoying. Webpages opening in FB does not make me feel safe. I want my webpages to open in my AV integrated browser.
