Emojis on Reply Posts
We love those emojis and Facebook just added it to the post and to the reply section. It’s a nice selection too. What took so long?
Pop-Up to Post
What? No. We don’t like these at all. If I want to scroll to reference another post or in any way move down the page, it asks us if we would like to “Keep Editing” or “Delete”. Annoying!! And adds time.
A HUGE glitch is with the pictures. If you move away from the post, you are asked the questions from above go back, the picture disappears. LSM Tip: just go back to add another picture and add one, then, delete the new picture. I usually use the same one, for convenience.
We DON’T Like! Go back to the way it was.
