A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Updates

    By MaddieBabyFirefly
    It is so annoying to have to update both this app and the messenger app every other week. I have very limited space on my phone and I’ve cut down everything I can to make storage without having to buy more space. But every other week I get a notification that I have to update the apps and every time I try to update them my phone tells me I don’t have enough space. I actually have to delete photos and videos of my kids to try and make room for these pointless updates. It’s incredibly obnoxious. If you actually seriously have some good solid updates and/or bug fixes then yeah, sure, shoot us an update. But having them every other week, finding superfluous things to update In the app just for the sake of a bi-weekly update, is obnoxious. If it weren’t for the fact that it’s the only way I have to see photos of my family members and their kids I would have deleted Facebook a long time ago. I update facebook and the messenger app far more frequently than I actually use them. Also what is up with the status box not being able to keep up with my typing? The cursor jumps around to the middle of the word to the previous word, then back to the very beginning of the text box, and then autocorrect tries to rectify all of those places that your cursor jumped around to and suddenly you have to retype the whole thing... SLOWLY. So done with Facebook.
  • Privacy

    By TMC 726
    There have been some privacy issues that I am getting tired of. One, why do people need to know if I am active? Why have the option for me to turn off my chat icon if it still shows me active. As someone said before, I would like to scroll through my news feed in peace. Two, why is it that if you have someone as you’re frond that they can call you on Facebook messenger. There are a lot of people that I do not directly talk to but I went to school with them or worked with them and we are friends on Facebook but I do not want them attempting to call me through messenger. Someone hacked one of my friends accounts and they called me at 217am. There should be an option on either who can call or to turn calling off altogether. As for regular issues news feeds are becoming annoying when they refresh on their own if I close my the app or my phone auto locks and I open it back up. I would like to continue where I left off. Another thing is why does it now show in order. I know there is a tab for that but it is like I have to go back and forth making sure my most recent is on and then that also goes away on its own and back to whatever you guys think is most relevant. Facebook is great at making friends and family far away feel near but lately it has been annoying.
  • Privacy Issue

    By Randyvip
    The new changes in Facebook really bothers me. When I like someones post, everyone of my friends knows. Why does everyone have to know what I like? This is a stupid feature. The only person that has to know that I like the post is the person that posted it. Second when Facebook started cracking down on viral staff it became boring. I know they are cracking down on fake news too but do Facebook really think that people are that dumb to not know what fake news is? Sometimes things goes viral because it’s funny and entertaining not because we don’t know it’s fake news. Why do you have to decide what’s fake news and what’s not for us? Don’t you think that we can decide that for ourselves? The third thing is that you cannot make yourself invisible in FB chat anymore. I’m talking about completely invisible. Even though they have the “invisible” button, you still show up as visible. This thing sparks conflict with friends because sometimes you don’t want to be bothered and just want to scroll your Newsfeed for fun stuff, then your friends starts messaging you and gets mad because you did not reply and they know that you are online. And this goes back to the first privacy problem, which is, when you like something it will show up to all your friends news feed, that tells them that you are online. So there is no more privacy really in Facebook.
  • Difficult to use with iOS VoiceOver

    By justmikeaf
    I am a blind user, and find this app difficult to use. Some functions are not labeled as links/buttons, so if I find myself unable to figure something out by listening, I have to blindly (pun intended) double tap on elements until I find one that does something. The browser version seems to have a slew of options for pages, which are absent from this app. Another problem I’ve noticed is a failure of using drop-down menus, such as when I was searching for my friend to add as admin to my page. I had to approach the problem in many different ways, and the eventual solution was something I had already attempted. The last thing I will mention is with News Feed/Timeline. I am often unable to scroll the News Feed, as the VoiceOver control jumps down to tabs. Three finger scroll down will sometimes move it, but sometimes not. Timeline’s feature lumping friends’ posts into one item seems impossible to open for interacting with individual posts. I give three stars, because there is a great deal of accessible features, and I do realize this (mostly) visual app must be challenging to translate to a screen reader. It is the inconsistencies in function, however, which kept my rating from being higher.
  • FakeBook

    For years I have used Facebook as a way of connecting with others but sadly when a company makes a privacy policy and terms and conditions a mile long where I need a lawyer to read me my rights of what I can or can’t do, I see a HUGE PROBLEM WITH THAT. After the newest scandal of my information being sold to third parties which I 100% believe that the CEO of Facebook knew that third parties were selling the information of 50 million of its users and profiting off of it. You have to be a complete and utter moron to think that this man has a $1 salary. I have deleted my account permanently and will not be returning to Facebook. My information and my data is solely mine and nobody else’s. And another thing after some of my I guess you could say somewhat conservative views were censored and removed from Facebook for quote “hate speech” of the right instead of the left that’s what really pushed me over the edge. I don’t want to be apart of a company as a user that silences my free speech right. And then labels it as hate speech. When if I say something hateful or disliking about the conservative side and trust me I’ve tested it Facebook never banned me for “hate speech” for a company who wants to make money they sure are blowing it all to hell. My recommendation don’t download this app. Don’t use the web address and don’t let your kids use it. #DeleteFacebookOutOfYourLife #TheDeathOfFacebook
  • Newsfeed Hasn’t Been Working for WEEKS on End

    By stormwasbetter6251473
    I have had yet to leave a review in the App Store, but I have been reporting this issue to Facebook for WEEKS on end now. My newsfeed only loads a few posts at a time. It won’t refresh. I have deleted and reinstalled more times than I can count on both hands. I have updated my phone, updated the app what seems like a million times. Still, nothing has been done to fix the problem. Just generic responses back from Facebook saying they’re working on it! 👍🏻 I have NEVER had an issue like this with ANY app, not just Facebook. The newsfeed not working means basically the entire application is useless. I cannot believe the problem has persisted this long. I can’t believe that after countless reports NOTHING has been done. Can’t even get an actual response from an actual person saying that my issue is being heard!!! If this were any other app, I’d have given up on it a LONG time ago, but the fact that I use this to connect to friends and family near and far is what has me keeping my account. However, I’m reaching my breaking point with it. Also, Facebook “support” is just as big of a joke as the app is. I can’t be the only one having this issue, but if it is not fixed soon, you can guarantee I will be deleting my Facebook account entirely. This has gotten past the point of ridiculousness.
  • To whom it may concern.

    By El DiiabliiTo
    I’m pretty sure that you as the developers of the app, have a Facebook account. So instead of adding useless features to the app that you don’t even tell us about when presenting the updates, (we have to figure them out ourselves) it would be nice that you guys could fix the small problems about it. Like when multitasking between apps. Let’s say, I’m on Facebook scrolling through my feed and I see a post that interests me and let’s say , I get a text message, I leave the app to reply to the text message, or go on google to look something up, then when I try to go back to Facebook, it just resets completely like if I closed it. So now the post that I was looking at is no longer there and I have to waste time looking for it which IT SHOULDN’T HAPPEN. I have an iPhone 6S and I’m not the only user who has had this issue. My friend as well on her 7+. So if you guys actually read reviews, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!! It’s been happening for months now and I’m fed up with it., that’s why I’m leaving this review. I literally have to save every post before exiting the app just in case it resets itself which I shouldn’ have to do that!. No other apps do that. So focus on what matters. I’m currently on Facebook as I type this and I bet whatever amount of money I have that it does it again.
  • Deeply Disappointed

    By nuanceovernovelty
    Following the Cambridge Analytica fiasco I considered deleting my account, but decided against it as I use it too much for business. However, that decision was made for me after and my account of >10 years disappeared overnight. My account was hacked, some sort of rule violation occurred, and my account was subsequently disabled. At this point in my story I’m inconvenienced and a bit frustrated, but understanding of Facebook’s policies. As I jump through the requisite hoops to restore my account (verifying my name, contact info, identify, submitting evidence of a hack, and explaining my experience) I see for the first time the true nature of this company. I simply receive a boilerplate email saying my request to restore my account has been denied. There is no way to communicate with a human being, no phone number, no email, no chat support. For a company that prides itself on fostering an environment for open and reasonable communication their silence is deafening and the irony is ripe. Doing the right and decent thing appears to be too much to ask of Facebook. As it is now abundantly clear to me that Facebook’s actions reflect beliefs and values in automated decision making and blanket judgements by an isolated and powerful entity rather than transparency, care for their users/community members, and any sort of channel to truly interact and serve the people who they are obligated to.
  • Glitch Fixes Needed

    By jlccourt
    Developers need to fix two things: the first is releasing all new status background options to ALL users. I see other users get new background options on a regular basis, and yet, I have had the same 14 options for a long time now. The second thing developers need to fix is the perpetual number 1 on the badge app icon and within the app itself, even if there are no unread notifications. The app’s description in the App Store is that “To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly” and that “Every update to our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.” We’ll, “new features” as of late haven’t been made available to me, and the only “reliability” I’ve encountered lately is the permanent number 1 on my notifications. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on both my phone and tablet to no avail. The problems seem to be account-related as the issues affect my account when I use my laptop, where I don’t use an app. I’ve reported both the lack of status background options for my account as well as the notifications glitch. I’m not all that confident that developers will fix the problems. 🙁
  • A technological embarrassment

    By Ignislupus
    Ok look, I love Facebook. I really do. Of all the mass digital big brothers selling my information to the Illuminati to better control my consumerism, Facebook is probably the one I’m most ok with. I range between comfortable with and resigned to the fact that this company probably knows me better than I know myself and has enough personal data on me to blackmail into oblivion. I’m fine with all that. What I’m not fine with is living in a time where the technological capacity exists for facebook to activate my phone’s mic and listen for keywords to better target ads to me, yet the app takes 6 attempts to open. No matter how many new phones or software updates I progress through, Facebook remains the glitchiest, buggiest, least functional app I’ve ever used. Constant crashes, endless glitches and bugs, not to mention it routinely takes 45 seconds to a minute to actually open after its usual 4 opening crashes. Seriously Facebook, you can digitize the entire social framework of existence but you can’t program a functional app? I know this kind of complaint is the epitome of first world problems, but please Facebook, I’m giving you my entire digital existence for you to buy and sell at will, can you at least make the process of me surrendering all privacy to my digital overlord a bit less of a glitchy slog?
