By Cindy Fredrickson. I'm a casual user of this app -- no live recordings or anything complicated. I log in and sign out at least once a day, or many times a day.
The biggest problem I find with the app is that it gives me a "something went wrong" message every time I log back in. I can see posts, but am unable to respond to them or share them until after I "restart" my phone. Then, just reopen the app, and I am already logged in, and good to go.
But, what a hassle. Community Terrible customer service Jan 14, By Brian Planer. Got a 7 day suspension for posting a pic of me I have posted numerous times and never had an issue.
Said it was a 7 day suspension but it shows 30 days. No ability to send my reason why I disagree and the other problems. continuously receive requests from obviously fake profiles from "women" with large breasts in skimpy outfits. All their other friends are from Ghana or Nigeria so obviously Russian trolls.
I report and get replies that FB sees no issue. No way to actually send real message more. Sep 14, By martha wachtstetter. Too many ads. It's almost impossible to watch a video. I am hard of hearing. So if I pause it takes 2 long 4 the words pause off screen.
To bad it sucks, for anyone with hearing problems. That sucks for the elderly. I always rate that app. Telling you about it more.
Sep 9, By Gigabuster That's what the app is. Every time I try to comment with GIF, it won't let me. When I try to watch a video, it'll bug out or not play properly. When I look at a post with multiple pictures, or someone's info, I automatically go back to the home feed. I may not use it on my phone, but I wonder why on my chromebook, I am getting a rough experience with Facebook.
By Jaclynn Danielle. I used to actually be able to keep touch with friends and family. Now, it's basically all reels and ads, and even when you select the option to "hide" them to not see a particular ad anymore, it still pops up. It's getting to the point where I'm about done with facebook.
Also, I agree with others that those with auditory issues like me can't see the subtitles on the bottom of videos because of the captions that now hover over it, so that function is basically useless. Aug 30, By Joshua Collins. I have recently been experiencing quite a few issues with the app.
I have been trying to catch up with friends but a lot of what i try to do won't work. Such as, I can not open pictures, the reactions don't work most often, and I have tried multiple times to delete old post without success. If my phone is out of date, or I have some settings wrong I will gladly change my rating. I am only choosing 2 stars at this time due to malfunctions in its operation on my device.

Want to give up May 19, By Cauceè Harris. Oct 19, By leelee Then at the end of the year I would create an album labeled for that year ex: and move all those photos over to that new album. At the beginning of I went to move all of my photos to a new album labeled and everything was different with the editing process. And I can no longer select more then one photo to move at a time. Can we get this corrected by any chance??
By carlyecakes the bad is when someone hacks your page…. I recently came across a fake profile bc of a fake business as someone was trying to sell me air duct cleaning.
Well i went into a serious investigation at 12am and found over 75 fake profiles and 3 fake business pages. It was pretty obvious to spot how I know they are fake. Then I found the real person that belonged to one of the profiles. they go into a spam folder. Allegedly 2. See all 3 reviews. Learn How to "Keep it Sold" Aug 22, By DuckieDeb.
Updated review Aug You guys never stop messing up the app. Now I can no longer edit my own posts or comments. This is ridiculous! Eventually another app will be available for social connections and we will all gleefully jump ship from Facebook. Stop making this app worse. Updated review Nov Stop messing up the app.
Fix the bugs, but stop tweaking it. Once again, when I go to Groups, I know longer see the Groups I belong to. This feature has gone away before; I reported it and it was restored. A basic business adage is to "keep it sold" which means taking care of your current customers while you also develop new ones. You've already got millions of us sold on Facebook, so quit screwing around with the app and just give us a stable, reliable feed.
Let the users decide what they see in their wall and in what order. I understand you make money from ads, so go ahead and put them out there, but let us manage our own content and interaction with our own friends, groups and pages. The more your developers keep tweaking with the app, the less appealing it becomes and the more unstable. Now it keeps freezing and quitting, making it difficult to post. See all 2 reviews. Sep 13, By Holly Hunt. It's barely functional anymore.
Half the time I can't even open the app anymore because it immediately crashes. Can't read images anymore because of the new set up, the captions block half the thing.
There's so many ads that you can't even see the things people on your friends list post. I only have this to keep in touch with people and I can't even do that anymore and this garbage is built into my phone so I can't even delete it. I know Zuck is cheap but hell this is bad.
Sep 12, By Maricelly Vargas. So, for the first time in over 10 years of me having Fb accounts, my app isn't opening up. It isn't responding. I miss the old Facebook. Where there were no adds, no reels, notifications were on point and we were able to comment openly.
I had to Uninstall my app, and re-download it. Hopefully it'll allow me to get back in since I have a Facebook page for my business as well. By Coralleroffur Nonya. Update: now the app has a bug and i am unable to access Facebook. since the update I am unable to click on likes or responses to my postings under pages. when I click, no matter which item, it will only take me to the most recent like or response; so if I click to view a response to a Vice article, it takes me to a liked item on The Hill for example.
it doesn't shift away no matter how many hours back you go. By Drew G. New version has a bug or it's designed to malfunction if I don't give them my number. A lot of apps won't function anymore if you don't allow permissions to access your private data. You used to be able deny it without a problem. Life is another one that's changed to do this. Fortunately, I don't need these apps for anything but entertainment, so I'm just deleting them.

This app is super fun and easy to use, it has a lot of activities for you to join in and helps you meet new people from all around the world Post. Patook - make platonic friends Patook LLC Social. Make strictly platonic friends who share your interests. No flirting allowed. Free Fresh Editor's Choice. Oct 28, By Joe W. Well-built app. Offers a TON of customization and actually shows you what about a person's profile matches with your preferences. I've met 4 or 5 people so far and hope to keep talking to them!
The only thing you'll have to get used to is the terminology. Being structured like a dating app, you'd think the term 'match' means someone who liked you back. It actually is just a 'match' to your preferences, someone who scores high. There is an accessible help menu I had to use twice to figure out. Your experience will vary greatly based on what your are looking for in-person vs virtual friends.
I'm using the app to meet people in-person and online. I'm in a major US city. I find it easy to connect with people in my area and across the world online. Most members are responsive and the app gives an ETA for replies, so no need to get anxious. I like that you can message without matching, this allows for more spontaneous connections. No issues with the ui or notifications. Dec 20, By A Google user.
Basically tinder for friendships. I love the idea and the execution! Very user friendly and I love the way it helps you match with people most like you and you can narrow your search criteria through a quiz thing. You also have a lot more room to express yourself in your profile than on tinder. Had the app a couple days and already have plans to go painting with a new acquaintance!
Nov 29, I just started today and like the idea of just finding friends. Other apps claim you can find friends too but end up with people looking for hookups and or spank materials. I'm no prude but it's all rather redundant and annoying really. Hopefully, I'll have cool people to chat to. Format is easy to use. So far, no weird bugs and whatnot. I'm still new to the app and haven't made any friends but so far I really love the app. I don't have many female friends and it's really awesome you can pick the gender or even couples to look at as potential friends.
Not too mention you can pick the age ranges. Plus interests and so much more. I'm a very anxious person when it comes to making friends irl but this app makes it much easier. I'd strongly recommend it if you're looking for friends. Irl, online only, or both. Also no one is trying to flirt or anything like that, it's all platonic.
Feb 19, By Kristen Thompson. Feb 19, 22 - it'd be real cool if the app let me upload photos. It hasn't been working going on 2 months now. A dev reached out to me on the app asking if there's any improvements that can be made, I responded and never heard back from them, nor has the issue been improved.
Old review:: Entire conversation disappeared. I found my friend on Instagram though and it turns out to be an issue with the app. Make sure you exchange contact information if you meet make friends with someone. Great Concept, Bad App Mgmt. Jun 3, By Dann I tried emailing, but that also leads to zero response, not even an automated one. The running of this app is poorly done. Chat msgs not being sent? Nov 7, By Joy Creative.
Great concept. Definitely beneficial with where I'm at right now - meeting new people and forming meaningful relationships. I'm recently divorced and my world has been flipped as far as relationships, so finding this app is perfect timing for finding friends ONLY no way am I trying to get into something rn after going through a divorce.
The only thing, I think I'm flagged or something. Everything seemed fine for the first week or so and then it seemed like the chat msgs I was sending weren't going thru. Instead of the double check, which indicates the other person read your msg, all of my chats just have the single check which just indicates it was sent and that the other person doesn't have notifications on. But somethings wrong because I've sent maybe 10 chat msgs to new people and none have read them or viewed my profile.
So it seems I have been flagged. I'm a guy and I've mostly msg'd women - it seems theres more women than men on the app, and honestly, I've only come across a handful of dudes who have interesting profiles.
I was raised by a tribe of women and have 5 sisters so I'm very comfortable having women friends. But maybe I'm blocked because I'm a male who's mostly reached out to females. Patook, any help with this issue? Jul 1, By Star Peters. I tried to login my account and it's not working. I'm proficient in literacy and very tech savvy. I sent an email to reset my password, only to find out there are ZERO options to reset my password.
The app is awful so I'll just move on to a different app. The people on the app are real, but discussions were very surface level. I felt as though I was on Seinfeld because the conversations lead no where. It's a platonic app so.. if you're not going to communicate then why use the app!!!! Jun 18, By Lauren D. No way to add pictures, and it looks like they're not fixing it. I see that 3 months ago somebody had the same issue. I'm a new user who just downloaded the app, and can't get a picture to upload either.
I spent 30 minutes filling out a profile, only to not be able to add a photo in step 2. What a complete waste of time. I'm so sad that the developers have apparently abandoned this really great project.
Community Although many online services try hard to provide a pure platonic experience, they don't as good of a job. On Patook, if someone is caught flirting, they get banned so you can be sure there will be less unpleasant situations. by David. Community In the modern world, people work on tight schedules, making it difficult to develop platonic relationships.
However, Meetup can help you meet at least 10 people on a daily basis. With continuous talk daily or as often as possible, you can build as many platonic relationships as you want within 30 days or less. Community Moving is never easy. Making new friends can be the most difficult part.
Attending a few events can fix that. With Meetup, you will be able to find something to suit your interests, regardless of whether you are new to a city of 2 million or a town of barely 20, people. by Ijeoma. Community Why is it that it's so hard to find someone who just wants to be friends? It seems like out of 10 people online, maybe 9 of them want something more than friendship. Patook is different - it's strictly an app for finding friends online.
Expert Looking to make new friends? An intuitive point system that makes it easy to find your next best friend that you are sure to get along with No creeps allowed! With it's no flirting policy you can find people wanting platonic friendships through the discussions tabs on tons of topics Easy to understand point system gives you the power to best find a person that is compatible to you more.
Best friend app yet! May 27, By mrs smutz. Patook is by far the best. I love how detailed the personality and preference sections are. It even has a questionnaire to fill out that helps match you with people based on compatibility points! Oh and one of the best parts is it prevents any unwanted flirting and recognizes words that could be inappropriate in messages and refuses to send them. Overall, this is a really awesome app. The App Our Lonely Generation Has Been Waiting For Sep 1, By Vanessa Murray.
I really like this app. Even in a smaller city I have still been able to meet really cool friends. You can set it up as a swipe system or a browse system. The profile information you fill out is thorough without being overbearing. You can assign points to characteristics of potentiometer friend matches. App colors are great. Yes this matters. So when you join which you should tell a bunch of people!
This is the app that are lonely online generation has been waiting for. So many features Jan 24, By Lexaley. I absolutely love this app. TRY IT!!!! By Melissa The point system is really helpful for finding potential friends with whom I have a lot in common.
It gives me the option to make match screening as detailed, selective and personal as I want. This encourages more real connections. The personal conversation starter messages and suggestions make initiating conversation less awkward. The policies, verification process, app moderation, user privacy preferences are helpful.
The sign up process is easy and doesn't require a facebook account. Responses from the app developer have been quick and effective. The app works smoothly. Sep 11, By Nichole Y. Very easy to use and you can get very detailed both about yourself and what you're looking for in a friend. Removed star - 2nd time entire chat disappeared along with the person I was talking to. Last time this happened it came back after a few days. It might do so this time too but I was really connecting with this person and now im worried they're going to think I'm ghosting them!
Oct 13, By Jason Bucknor. It's early to give a honest feedback cause I've not been using the app very long. But the user interface is good and I like the fact that it provides a meeting space for forming platonic friendships. The key is to fill out your profile and let ppl know exactly what you want and what you're about. Also reach out to ppl. Most of us on the app are probably shy anyway. Also, you may not be able to find friends physically close in location but keep an open mind to finding online friends.
Feb 13, Okay, so it's a great idea and the finding people aspect of it is great, however, the algorithm it uses to see if you're moving too fast, or trying to date, or the algorithm it uses to see if youre trying to ACTUALLY harm yourself needs to be tweaked.
For example, I was talking to someone about fallout 76, I typed in the numbers 7 and 6, and it prevented me from sending because it thought I was sending a phone number. The algorithm doesn't make room for sarcasm. Jun 29, It's what it says. No one has flirted or anything, all just good and friendly.
I've made one good friend so far, hoping to make more. The filters are super useful. There are a lot of things to fill out on your profile optional of course, but needed for more relevant matches , which I love!
The interface is pretty good. Definitely give it a try if you want an app to make friends on and no other has worked.
Why not! Jan 14, By Petezod. It is what you put into it and how you interact with people. I like the world connection thing. Make a friend from England, say hello to a lady from Australia, meet a guy from Argentina, or a young couple from Pittsburgh with common interests.
My grandma a widow of 5 kids was an avid writer and pen pal. She corresponded with people from all over the world. On a teachers salary she was on a limited budget.
She made friends on every continent and always had a place to stay overseas and she was never bored when she got home because she always had interesting company coming to visit. She would have loved this app. This app could give you a good start to never being bored again with a little screening to boot! Undoubtedly more than she ever had! Have fun! May 9, By Alison Claire. Profiles and matching criteria are really in-depth, which is good. It's buggy though: I've had chats disappear entirely for a few days.
Users are very shy and honestly awful at conversation; I don't mind slow replies, but there's a lot of dry texters here which is difficult. And you have to deduce who recently liked you; it won't tell you, just show your recent visitors. I'll be moving to Out when it releases June 1st queer friendship app in hopes people will be more talkative there. Oct 10, The concept was great, it was easy and fun to create a profile and find friend matches.
But the bugs and AI flaws make it unusable. Matches constantly disappear which leaves you unable to continue talking to someone sometimes in the middle of a conversation. Users are flagged randomly which prevents messages from being sent. Enough people have complained about this that it's clearly a widespread issue.
People are not blocking you or deleting their accounts this frequently - fix it. Nov 15, By Sylvio. I was using it fine until I Factory Reset my device and now it won't let me log in. I've contacted support and nothing so far 2 years now. Such a shame, I was talking to some really nice people. Guess that's what I get for using an app with features from the 80s that doesn't even connect to your email or Google account for login I will never recommend or trust Patook again.
But in theory, in concept, it's a good app. It's just very sloppily built. It's been years since it was stable. Feb 16, It's a pretty good concept, but for some reason suddenly you might find yourself unable to send or receive messages.
Really disappointing to begin making some friends then have them think you're ghosting them when it's really that suddenly the chats just stop working. Update: Months later and emails to support go unanswered. I found my new friends outside Patook, but the app continues to do nothing.
So I was able to test with them, and it's a Patook issue. May 23, The layout was rudimentary and confusing to the point where I couldn't even upload a photo. I also find having no human moderators and trusting solely bots to monitor conversations to be problematic. I like the concept of a strictly platonic app, but the app itself could use some work.

Community The new format is stupid and dumb. Hate it. Jun 25, By Rose Spencer. I hate the new format where you have to stop playing and pick a topic. I guess my Trivia Crack days are over. Love it Jul 21, By Problematic Attention. This is a great trivia game, but I do have a few criticisms about it. One is that the use of coins to me is really elusive.
Second, the ads. The ads, though short, can become somewhat irritating, especially when the ad is inappropriate, like for gambling or grand mafia, and zombie games. I wish that they would just give me longer ads, but infrequent, so it in not just a quick inconvenience that happens to often.
Other than that, it really is great, like the question factory and question game modes. The lives have become a tad bit annoying, but manageable. Other than that, the game is the best trivia game I have played, and is better than Trivia Crack 2 in my opinion.
By Amber Jones. This game has made some changes since I last played it. You still have the traditional trivia challenge with others, which at times would lose its appeal, but now there are challenges. I love the additional game play a person can do. only down point is the frequency of ads in the middle of a question appearing that you have to exit out of while hoping the timer does not expire foe you to answer. Let's be real, it is a free game and ads let it continue to be free.
Love this game! AWESOME Jan 23, By גןע. This game is so much fun!!!! I love how you get to spin the wheel and actually feel it moving. The catergories and characters are so cute.
