I’ve been having to use FB again recently and I’m continually amazed at how *bad* it is. I don’t mean the well-known complaints about the content, all of which are valid. I just mean the software; it’s just awful about the basics. I have ~500 friends, but every time I go it shows me the same several posts up front, for several days at a time. Like, what is your algorithm even doing?

I made a “close friends” list with ~20 folks on it so I could see everything from the very few people I was actually interested in updates from. This worked for a long time… and then didn’t. Note random crap gets inserted, and it’s just a slightly-less-bad version of the main feed.

At least they fixed the broken JavaScript that made text entry broken in mobile fire *years*. It’s just astounding. And then every few months you’ll get a “notification” about “friends you haven’t interacted with in a while”.🙄
