    I downloaded the update for the Facebook app today and everything looks normal but whenever I close out the app from the multitasking tray and reopen it, I get a different design with a black tabbed bar at the bottom. Anyone else experience this?

    New design:

    And also, to get back to the updated look released today, I have to uninstall then reinstall the app.

    Weird. It must be some sort of bug; the current design looks more functional than that one.

    i have exactly the same problem...
    everytime i reinstall the app, then force to close it, the bug is there again.
    the buttons are at the bottom, no swiping and no chatheads... stickers are there....

    what could this be?

    Same, I have no Chat Heads but I have stickers. All of my friends have the Chat heads and they don't have this design bug. Hmmmmm...

    I emailed Facebook about and i'll see if they reply.

    This is happening on my wife's 4S but not on my 5. Does anybody have any resolution yet?

    This keeps happening to me as well. Uninstalling and reinstalling temporarily fixes it but it soon reverts to that layout with the icons on the bottom and no swipe out menu from the left. It's really annoying me now, and much like the missing notification sounds that have been known about and not fixed for almost a year, I'm not expecting this to be sorted any time soon.

    Not an issue or bug

    With the last major update to the iOS Facebook app a few weeks ago they started this. Word is they're trying out the tabbed interface and the side drawer we've had for a long time now. Users get it via random selection.

    I don't have links to this, just remember seeing it at the time from a developer (which I don't remember either lol) I follow on Twitter who's right most of the time if I might add.

    New Facebok update today appears to have fixed this for me.

    Speaking of facebook, i wonder if they will ever bother putting all the notification sounds back into the app. It has been silent since before IOS 6, and i am running IOS 7 and still no sound. Kind of made the app useless without that sound coming in on alerts. It actually has made me use Twitter more.

    The current Facebook app is messy, they should make it a bit like Tweetbot where you can customise the buttons at the bottom.
