Your thread - to talk whatever you want about Facebook on Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8. Doesn't matter what model you own, come here and talk, share, keep it on topic.

So clearly there is lots of room for improvement in the Facebook app, but this bug renders it completely unusable for me.
Whenever I'm scrolling through my news feed, I get the loading bars and the page scrolls back to the top. This happens so many times I rarely get through the stories of the day before I give up.
Is anyone else experiencing this?

Question to everyone out there-
Has anyone else been having a problem with their facebook news feed? On my Verizon 8X it recently (within the last two weeks) has been omitting multiple hours of the news feed on both the people hub and on the facebook app. Basically, it will show somewhere around the most recent 2-5 hours and then skip back 24 or more hours, with the time in between missing. This has been verified by using the facebook website to make sure there were posts in that "missing" timeframe.
I don't know if this problem exactly syncs up with the portico update, but it was around the same time. All other features of both the people hub and the facebook app work normally. I can post, check in, comment on other people's posts, upload pictures, etc.
On a side note, does anyone know why some people's posts will appear only on the website and not in the people hub or on the mobile app? Always found that a bit odd...
Any help or insight is appreciated!

I just dont understand why facebook doesn't give a damn. Out of any OS no other one i know of has so fully and beautifully integrated into how it works. I don't understand why such neglect.
Also lets not pretend that BlackBerry is actually going anywhere any time soon.

Economics. Why develop for BB and wp8? They have practically no market share between them. Unless someone PAYS them to develop for less than 8% of the market, they will use resources for the other 75%+. Its just not good business to use resources on the small market. Also, MS can't even fix there own issues with OS. Why would developers support them if they won't support their own platform? Nokia is the only company supporting WP8. Also, if I were Nokia, I would go Android just to get MS moving. Its been 5 months since wp8 release, and eternity in mobile OS. The top 10 problems should be fixed. If MS wants support, they need to lead by example. "If you build it, they will come." Or something like that. MS hasn't built it yet. Its on stilts, leaning badly with life support failing and not a word out of them. So no, don't expect any support from big devs for a while.

I don't get the "lack of market share" argument. Even with a smaller share you are still talking about millions of users. Putting an official app out shouldn't be that big of a deal. You are talking about a couple dudes sitting at a computer writing code and then once it gets writing, it is all down hill from there. Work on bug fixes and pending updates. A few guys to serve a couple million customers. And some say that isn't smart business.

I really hate it, but I understand it. ALOT of websites and apps for other phones all are starting to look metro-ish and we're not getting them. Web Apps are enough for me, I wish we had a notification center because my official FB App would get a notification I can actually see then I can open the web app to look at whats going on and just click and back out of the main app to delete the notification. That's what I do now, I have my FB App and my FB Webapp pinned side by side. Open Webapp and read notification, back out then I just click my FB App once and back out.

And we're discussing $600 phones here. Of course it's a first world problem. Aren't all problems discussed on WPCentral first world problems?

MSFT not supporting! I think you have no clue about what you are talking.
MSFT is paying Nokia 250 million USD quarterly for their support to WP and most probably this amount going to be increased.
More over if you had read the news today that Nokia has some concern about if MSFT start producing WP and this won't happen unless MSFT seeing not enough work from the OEM in supporting WP, the same they did with OEM for PC when they start doing their own hardware "Surface"
