That's the unfortunate truth. I just wish it wasn't all about the money, or that there was some impetus to improve the app. Facebook does occasionally but it's not enough. That being said, most apps I use that are free get a lot of enhancements (speed and efficiency wise). None of it makes them more money but they do it anyway. Part of it is that Facebook is a monopoly but even then it's just stupid.
As for the privacy I don't care. At all.
