There’s been a lot of hype about the new Facebook timelines. I’ve read articles on how to use the timeline, complaints about the timeline, praise of the timeline. And honestly, all that’s great.
What I haven’t read much about is something that has frustrated me about Facebook for months. Tagging.
I’m not talking about being tagged in photos when you don’t want to be. I’m talking about the fact that from my phone, I can’t tag people in status updates. I can’t tag them in comments either. I have an iPhone. I also have a Kindle Fire – that means I have both an iOS and a Droid platform device. Still, no tagging through the Facebook app.
This is basic functionality that has not worked since…well, I can’t recall it ever working. Yet rather than fix this, Facebook seems intent on overthrowing Google. The problem is, in order to overtake a major competitor you can’t ignore your core functionality.
So, please Facebook? Please fix it? If you do I will wholeheartedly support your empire. I’m not kidding. I’m supremely brand loyal. Fix this issue in the next, say, 60 days and I will be yours for life.
Am I the only one this annoys?
Sidenote: Yes, I know this is a First World Problem. It still irks me that a major corporation doesn’t continually update their functionality. If they can afford to buy Instagram for a billion dollars, I feel like they can afford to spend a few hours getting their app to include all features.
