My Facebook account is broken
« on: Sat Jun 16, 2018 - 02:17:03 »
Ok, I know this is a long shot, but...

My Facebook account is suddenly totally hosed.

My News Feed is blank.  My Timeline is blank.  Messenger is gone.  None of the items on the bar -- Friends, Notifications, Help, etc. -- work at all.  I cannot post new messages.

However, when I view my Timeline from a friend's account, it looks fine.

I have tried clearing the browser cache, closing and restarting Facebook, using a different browser, rebooting the computer.

Since I can't use Facebook at all, it is difficult to contact Facebook tech support, and they are typically useless anyway.

Any bright ideas?


Additional info:  It does not work at all in Palemoon (my primary browser) or Opera (my second choice).  It mostly does not work in Internet Explorer.  It does seem to work semi-tolerably in an obscure browser called "Lunascape."

I am with Jaime on that.

Could be a FB internal decision. I still cannot access Diamond and Silk.

But have you tried Chrome or Firefox browser to access?

Can you contact FB support from a friends computer?

Have you tried to set up a totally separate FB account from your computer just changing your user name a bit by adding a middle initial or deleting it?

My Facebook is back.

It fixed itself, just as it broke itself.

I used alternate browsers for about a day.  The experience was not pleasant, but at least FB was usable.  I also checked in every few hours with my favorite browser.  The first many times, it did not work.  Mostly blank page.  "F" logo in the corner, items on the blue bar present but non-functional.  Then, suddenly, all was back to normal.

Facebook is infamous for the fact that its engi-nerds are always tinkering behind the scenes.  It's entirely likely their diddling smacked me.
