    I still don't understand this, has anyone else seen the new facebook version? several days later and our main machine is still not getting it. Yet it is happily getting uodates for other apps through the store. I wonder if the facebook update got pulled soon after our second machine got it?

    Could it be that the update sees something installed on your computer that is incompatible so it won't download?

    I don't use the app, but I just went to store and installed it. This is the version I got. Don't know if this helps or adds to the confusion!

    Ok thank you. The version you have matched the one on my main PC that is not being offered the newer version. The only logical thing I can think is the version 71 was perhaps temporarily offered and then pulled ! I really appreciate the feedback though and the fact you went to the trouble of installing the app to let me know.

    cheers

    You're welcome, no bother. At least you know it's not gremlins running amok on your box!

    Yes thank you. Your right , it wasn't so much that I really bothered what version - it was because I was more worried that the main machine had a problem and wasn't doing what it was supposed to!

    Hmmm, saga goes on. The secondary machine received an app update this morning once again for Facebook bringing it to an ever so slightly higher version number. Yet the main PC on manually checking only received updates for Skype preview, calculator, feedback hub but no Facebook. So it still runs the older 69. Version. Just pretty baffled by why it's happening and Facebook updates are not pushed to all machines! It sounds like it's a ms server issue where the Facebook app is not being brought up to date on all their servers but only some

    Ok thank you. I'll check for app updates again this evening, it is pretty baffling why this one pc picks up every app update going but seems unwilling to grab the new facebook versions. It is strange when you initially downloaded you got the older version and only now got the newer one. Maybe I still need to give it more time to be offered to my main machine.
