The first point that stands out is the bar ad that appears at the top of the display when you request the update of the timeline. Although the resource is discrete, this can be a nuisance to those who do not support advertising applications.

Here you can not view profiles, follow or unfollow anyone. Thus, the app limits you to publish and provide publications friends.
