Bring back the old Facebook app

This morning when I logged in, the Facebook app has received an "upgrade." All it shows me is my own timeline, which I think is rather pointless. I use Facebook to see what others post, not what I posted. Please bring back the ability to see my Facebook news feed through this app!

        Me too. I want to see my news stream -- not my own postings.

        Facebook app is now completely pointless. I know what I posted - it is other peoples posts that I want to keep up to date with.

        It seems it is FB that has changed that prevents this being possible - if so how else is anyone supposed to keep up to date with what their friends say without directly visiting FB? But if this is true, why does my phone still work and other apps still work if FB has removed this capability?

        Hear! Hear! Why on earth would I want to follow my own posts?

        When I installed the new Facebook feed, it was showing all of my own stuff. I thought that was incorrect, so I re installed it, and now it doesn't show anything at all. It just says "No Results". Can you either fix the new one, or bring back the old one?

        AGREED! I'm glad I'm not the only one frustrated by this problem. Totally pointless to look at my own FB page, what I want is my newsfeed (the old way).

        Is Netvibes doing anything about this with Facebook??? It's been a huge appeal to have both FB and Twitter on my home page. Please help.

        +1 The Facebook app is pretty much useless as it is now. Such a shame if FB prevented the old one from working.

        In their blog they said, "[04/30 update]
        3. Facebook app: Facebook no longer allows us to retrieve your News Feed."

        What the heck? Why? Facebook isn't allowing it?

        Please please fix this. Do whatever Facebook says you have to do, or go back to the old app.

        The new Facebook widget is totally useless! FIX IT!
