So I only have FB for my business, and like some of you might know they changed their interface which is really user UNFRIENDLY, LIKE BIGTIME! I could go back to FB classic for weeks but now it doesn't seem to allow me to do that. I don't get what the whole thing is about, and their customer service is basically NIL. Any one else having issues??

Totally hear you Anita! I use FB for some photography groups and don't want to give those up, otherwise I'd have deleted my account already. I learned through one of those groups that there is an extension you can use that will revert it to the old user interface, plus allow you to filter out ads and other extraneous nonsense that you don't want to see. There are a few of these available, but the one I have installed is from social fixer. Facebook did try to close him down so don't know how long it will work. Give it a try, I like it.

Thank you Sarah! I didn't know about this app and yes I won't be surprise if they block update from this.

I have same, it's been a few months I stop posting on FB, I feel like it is not that helpful now but more of ads or unrelated stuff getting displayed.

Looks like a great link. Will try it out asap. Hope Fb can recognize title and caption of a photo again with that...

I use something called FBPurity ("Fluff Busting Purity") as a browser plug-in that gives me the old interface and adds a bunch of other nice filter features AND a new feed option called "Friends Feed" where it blocks all the commercial stuff and just gives me posts by my friends. Been using it for years.
