    The app is atrocious and I am sure it's slowing my phone down.

    Have you tried removing from your iPhone, then reinstalling?

    Also which iPhone do you have?

    No I mean the quality of the app is slipping in quality

    How is it slipping in quality? It's worked perfectly for me, never had a problem with it. Someone suggested you delete it an reinstall it, maybe try that--if you're the only one with the problem then it's clearly on your end.

    I agree!! Facebook on my IP4 has been terrible. Half the time I'll get a notification that someone has commented on a picture, when I go into the picture it may or may not be there. Connection problems, crashing etc etc. Terrible.

    Agreed. You would think one of the most popular apps would have some quality to it.

    Why do people say "Viphone"? I understand the "verizon" but why?

    Yes "special", I think of them as special. in the sense that it is a euphemism like "handicapable"?

    only "problem" I've had with it is that sometimes when I tap "more posts" at the bottom it loads them and hides them right away so I have to tap again to show them.

    otherwise works perfectly and never crashes.

    Its crashed a few times for me but that doesn't annoy me as does that problem what you have stated. My problem comes about from when people post comments on a pic I have uploaded.

    Are you looking to be banned? :)

    The problem with FB is that the app developer adds things but then screws up other things that were working. It’s a good practice to keep copies of apps somewhere else, so you can go back to a previous version, if something gets fuggled. I just did and FB is much better.

    So I think everyone needs to put the first letter for the carrier from now on. People who say Viphone forget that the iPhone is actually available internationally on multiple carriers.

    Using the m.facebook.com site

    The new up is using the m.facebook.com site so it won't have to update as much. This is according to Mashable and TechCrunch.
