Facebook Search Alternative

Positive Comment by rpungin
about Facebook Mar 2016

Do you have too many photo albums that it takes forever to scroll to find the one you are looking for? What about videos? You have to just scroll through thumbnails to find the one you are looking for. This is very frustrating. So that's why I wrote the app called Search For Posts. In addition to the ability to search for your timeline posts by keywords and/or date range, it can also search for your photo albums, individual photos, videos and comments. The app is for iOS only. Here is the link to the AppStore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/search-for-posts/id661005085

The app is also listed on this site here: Small Search For Posts iconSearch For Posts

If you find the app useful, please like it on this site as well as write a positive review in the app store.

Best regards,
Raphael Pungin
Search For Posts developer.

Jottar.com: alternative social networking

Negative Comment by aujasonr
about Facebook and Jottar May 2014

Facebook has really lost its appeal to me now, these days you can't choose what you want to see on your newsfeed 'Facebook decides for you', even if you like pages and want to see their content it depends now how much the page owners pay Facebook to reach a percentage of their fans. Another social networking alternative I have found with a bit of a difference is Small Jottar iconJottar check it out.

Left facebook for G+

Negative Comment by DazzaJayF
about Facebook and Google Plus Mar 2013

Closed my Facebook account after it changed all my security settings to public without my knowledge or consent. It also restored ALL of my "Deleted" posts when the change to Timeline occurred, and twice more since then. It also put up a live GPS of my position without my consent through the Android App, and would not allow me to remove it off my timeline.

So, I closed my account and switched to Google+. That was about six months ago and I'm not looking back!

Hopefully, facebook will piss off more people with security and nonsence, and they will also leave for g+.
However, i also hope that all the spammers, morons, and trolls will stay on fb. (but that won't happen, they will just follow the majority, /sign)

about Facebook May 2012

I switched to facebook because it was much more simple than myspace and didn't have all the crap myspace does. But facebook is making the same mistake myspace did by adding applications that can post and even have full control over your account. Also it seems facebook is filling up with a bunch of little kids now, which is making me lose intrest in even using the site anymore.

I use this to keep in touch with most of my school mates, and friends I had met in school. it does pretty good. it is a nice interface, and is not as graphically intensive as myspace.
