What's New: * Simplified navigation - now it's much easier to find suggested events and places to go. * Automatically shows you the best places as you move the map around. * Faster access to your upcoming events. * Bug fixes and performance improvements. * Improved list creation and integration with the map.

Facebook Local app reviews

  • can't find what I need 2/5

    By djun13l
    When opening an event, it's hard to find the important information in the description. Also the posts in events are incomplete and it's very annoying. Any pictures won't show up with the post text so I'm unable to see the set times for example, and I can click the post to open a page that says "Comments" on the top but nothing else shows up so I can't add a comment either. The app at one point was useful for managing my events without having to go through Facebook and get distracted but now it's half useless. At least I can make an event...
  • Terrible! 1/5

    By Schmittee92
    This app is horrible! I get a badge notification randomly for no reason half the time. When I go into the notifications, it doesn’t update them and it doesn’t let me view what the notification is (just comes up as a blank screen). I wish this would work better!
  • Problems. 1/5

    By KatBLake Worth
    Use to love this app. But for the past few months I’ve had nothing but problems with the app.
  • Updated needed ASAP 1/5

    By Kkitler
    I like the idea of this app but there are so many bugs. The app constantly crashes, the notifications never go away, when typing in an event sometimes I am not able to see the words I am typing until I post, when I open a notification it takes me to a blank page sometimes, I can’t search for actual events that I know are there, and the list goes on!!
  • High hopes and Low results 2/5

    By HippyDeathWish
    I hoped that I could use this moving forward instead of Facebook. The alerts are out of whack. I get reminded of the same events over and over again even though I’m not marking that I’m interested in them. Enhancements needed.
  • Lame 1/5

    By Rapidgrowth
    I got this app to find local events to run a vendor booth at and this app is not user friendly. It’s unintuitive, ugly, and overall worthless. I had go back on Facebook to even find events that fit my search criteria despite them being local. Don’t download this worthless app.
  • What happened? 1/5

    By sleepygato
    This app used to be perfect. Now it’s completely unusable. The whole point of the app is to get information on events, but the app barely loads content. I get notifications that someone posted a comment in an event but then it doesn’t show up. It’s difficult to navigate and search for events. I just use Facebook now, but that experience isn’t much better. So disappointing.
  • Defects cause poor user experience 1/5

    By luvviki
    Originally when this app first came out, I really enjoyed it. However, recently no one has been managing defects. It’s barely functioning the way it’s supposed to: 1) you can’t comment in an event 2) you can’t view comments 3) time is not adjusted based on your time zone 4) the app won’t take you back to Facebook when you click into a user’s profile 5) you can’t post anything other than plain text into an event. 6) you can’t see the user’s profile picture next to their post 7) you can’t view pictures posted in the event If Facebook won’t allow us to see events in your Facebook app anymore, they really need to fix the Events app....
  • Use to be good. 2/5

    By NoLightSwitchesHere
    I use to like this app (before the dot started appearing for no reason, forcing me to have to constantly open the app to make it go away). At this point, I’m planning to delete the app, if it’s not fixed. I haven’t joined any events in a while, mostly because of a schedule change at work (but partly because of Covid) and yet the “notifications” icon pops up incessantly. 🙄 Please fix this. It’s extraordinarily annoying. Thank you in advance. ✌🏻
  • Good for easy check of events but has issues 2/5

    By SiriKiriChandra
    Changing Privacy of events after clicking Interested doesn’t work. Gives a blank screen instead of Friends, only me screen Need to go to Facebook app which defeats the purpose of using this app in the first place Also don’t see a way to filter online vs in person events
  • Crashing A LOT :( 3/5

    By DestinyRainz
    Keeps crashing every few minutes...
  • Did Facebook nuke this app? 2/5

    By Smacklug
    This app used to show event descriptions on the primary “About” tab, but now I can’t see the event description through any obvious means... I don’t understand why Facebook would change the UI like this, but they’ve almost totally wrecked the functionality with whatever they’ve done here. Please fix! This app used to be excellent.
  • Impossible to navigate 1/5

    By Masterovcreation
    Navigation in this app is garbage. Facebook is tanking it because it’s the only valuable thing left on Facebook.
  • Prefer the older version 1/5

    By Tjl81404
    Not a fan of the new version of this app. I used to be able to just pull up the map and scroll around and it would show events from wherever. I now have to type in a specific area to look for events. I’m the type of person who likes to find events, then go to that town for the event, not find a town and then find events. Doesn’t seem user friendly at all. I try to enter a town to look for events, then try to clear that town and enter a new town but it reverts back to first town. Point is, older version was easier and more friendly to use. Won’t be using it much anymore until things improve for the better. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
  • What happened?? 2/5

    By CDE2007
    This used to be a great app. Now anytime any event has a post in it, I can’t see it. I get no notifications. I can’t see anything. So annoying. Please fix.
  • Just doesn’t work properly 2/5

    By Doty 34
    Notifications come in late, or not at all. Then when you click on them, they don’t direct you to the correct page. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app. I have an iPhone X running the latest operating system. This is ridiculous.
  • Local app not updating 2/5

    By 2020 over it
    Events that I’m interested in FB are only partially showing up?
  • Basically useless after update 1/5

    By beachyogini
    Does not mark notifications as read, comments in events do not load, and crashes constantly.
  • Can’t view posts from the original page 3/5

    By SildanXr.
    I get notifications that the event host posted something but when clicking the notifications it opens a comments section just blank
  • Update ruined the app 1/5

    By Jellonigga
    App was working fine until last update. Now the search here button was removed and not all the events are popping up on the map.
  • Constant Notifications 1/5

    By Jacket-dave
    I receive a notification from this app for an event, so I open the app, view the event, and even respond as going/maybe/not going. Then, 10 minutes later, I get another notification from this app. I open it, and it’s for the same event. This goes on constantly until the event is over. I had to delete this app!
  • Same notifications daily 3/5

    By Ejavu
    I love how the app suggests local activities of any kind. You can invite your Facebook friends. The only negative about the app is it seems to send the same notifications multiple times. I’m the kind of person that will see what the notification is so it will go away. You can do that with this app. Unless there isn’t that much going on in my location, it seems to tell me the same notification all the time. I don’t know how to adjust the settings
  • 👎🏼Non Stop Crashing and Errors👎🏼 1/5

    By AprilMayJuneJulyAugust
    Leave it to Facebook to force us to use a separate app altogether just to get notifications about events I want to go to, only for the app to absolutely fail at functioning when I actually try to use it. CONSTANT CRASHES for months on end. I literally cannot open a comment on a post within an Event without it crashing. I try to view an event and it looks like an 8bit screen and won’t let me comment on anything. I’ve missed important updates cause I didn’t receive an alert till hours after it happened. This app is absolute garbage when it comes to functionality. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
  • Great concept 3/5

    By idinthaveone1298765
    Like the concept. Little disappointing because it does not seem to provide information about the markers it shows on the maps. Maybe I’m missing something but it would be nice to click on a marker on the map and receive details about it, maybe a link to their Facebook page.
  • Glitches 2/5

    By rlconrad7
    Works ok but a lot of little bugs and glitches. Annoying but mostly useable.
  • Comments won’t load 1/5

    By msking325
    The comments wont load and notifications aren’t being marked as read after I open them. Also notifications over 6 days old won’t appear anymore. Please fix this glitch.
  • Problems not clearing viewed events 4/5

    By Kip Piper
    For the last couple of weeks or so, this app not only does not clear in Notifications the events that I have viewed, but keeps notifying me repeatedly for events I’ve already viewed - and even attended. Needs some serious debugging!
  • Needs updated 3/5

    By TheTMD
    Can’t see any comments on the app of any events being posted, and is always giving up phantom notifications of the same events and no refreshes
  • Ghost notifications 1/5

    By Katimiss
    It keeps giving me a notification, MULTIPLE times an hour even, with no new notifications.... I’m about to delete!
  • The App isn’t working 1/5

    By Christine✨
    For weeks now, I get notifications. But when I want to open the notification, it either doesn’t display or it just crashes. This makes it difficult to interact in the events. Is it going to be fixed anytime soon?
  • Could be better 1/5

    By Cooking Diva
    I use this app at times, but it keeps crashing and won’t update, it needs to be upgraded.
  • Notifications out of control 1/5

    By Matt3540
    Getting a notification badge in this every time I get a notification in the main Facebook app. Highly annoying.
  • Y’all really don’t care 1/5

    By Bootybagdude
    The body text is white with a white background. Is this a form of nostalgia to remember using invisible ink as kids? Also can’t adjust the timer so I guess we’re all meeting at 12am! And the best part is when I am finished with everything and ready to go live everything gets deleted and vanishes without a trace! This app is magical. In less than 1 hour I went from excited and cheerful to depressed and unbearably frustrated! I never write reviews but this one was special. I’d be glad to replace whoever is in charge of user/product research or whatever other kind of sorry insights you guys are using to make decisions for this product! Shame on you! Hahaha I’m delirious with annoyance! 🤣🤣🤣
  • Godawful 1/5

    By Ashbugcampbell
    Try actually having people collaborate on an event through this app. I dare you. It’s full of bugs, half the people don’t see notifications, and you can’t actually have a discussion without leaving the app and going to the event through the actual Facebook app. I have never found a more useless and actively aggravating app.
  • Can't change audience privacy settings 1/5

    By Jolly Warlock
    Just sits there in limbo
  • Accessibility? 1/5

    By cc3-53
    I am totally blind and installing this app which I hope is accessible considering that the ADA is 30 years old on July 26.
  • Super sad 1/5

    By Ari_Atari
    Thought this app would be a game changer! Got it so that I could deactivate my account but check in to events. But sadly when you log in it reactivates your account which defeats the purpose!!!
  • Hate it!!! Trap me!! I didn’t know I ordered it!! 1/5

    By u wont take notin but good
    I want my money bck I was on Facebook and this popped up I thot it was part of the app I was on!!! Refund and DELETE!! Fishing Is illegal!!!!
  • Local by Facebook 2/5

    By Litlecamper
    I’m not very tech savvy but I noticed this site talked about an admin person to approve a post? Then when I posted it to Messenger everyone told me they couldn’t open it. Not sure what I did wrong.
  • Notifications screen doesn’t load 1/5

    By Daguerratype
    Latest update broke the notification screen, making the app useless.
  • Trying to post an event 1/5

    By Snode3
    Invalid request domain: Blah blah blah. How am I supposed to promote my event on this page?
  • App crashes 1/5

    By ariesanna
    App opens and crashes when try to change interest or perform other functions.
  • please let us block/hide events 1/5

    By smoniaa
    please please create the option to block or hide suggested events
  • Please give us dark mode and an iPad version! 2/5

    By Sicilianvirgo
    iPad version would allow us to use it in landscape mode. Dark mode should just be a given. Interface could be a bit simpler too.
  • What happened here? 2/5

    By Lawrence Kay
    The app is so busy promoting “other” events that it’s almost impossible to find events my friends have invited me to, and/or that I’ve already signed up to attend (via FB website, for example). And then if I find the event I’ve already signed up for, the app makes it difficult to get the relevant information to attend. Why can’t this app be more like the very functional, eminently useful Events part of the FB website? Why does this app have to be so extra?
  • No calendar sync? Seriously? 1/5

    By 100%Insomniac
    This app, and Facebook events in general, could be good if there was an easy way to sync items with a calendar aggregation app. It’s incredibly frustrating that these events can not sync with even the most popular (iOS and google) calendars. I’m not going to delineate all the many reasons why this is a necessary feature that I find completely preposterous to be missing. Get your act together.
  • Hard to use, weird sorting 1/5

    By BahnBahn
    The sorting makes this app really hard to use. After navigating to a “Tomorrow”, I still get recommendations for the current day, even if they’ve already ended. If I sort by start time, nearly all the events disappear. Not worth the hassle anymore.
  • Handy but needs an update! 2/5

    By laurenrodgers90
    I create events quite often. But recently for someone reason when I start typing in the description it’s invisible text. Until I save it it shows up. Which makes editing impossible. Please fix this soon!!
  • Muy vomito esta tarde 5/5

    By quezadita
