If that is the case, make sure to get near a fast internet connection that is stable as well and the problem will be solved.

Facebook not working

Wrong Settings

If your Facebook Feed is not working properly then it could be because of incorrect settings set up on Facebook.

You may want to see recent posts but Facebook has set your feed to show up popular posts first and that could be the culprit.

Corrupted Facebook App

You may find that the Facebook Feed Not Working error is caused due to corrupted app data on the Android or iOS app.

This may be caused due to an issue or some virus doing tricks with your phone but corrupted app data may develop your Facebook Feed Not Loading error.

Update your Facebook app

We saw that many users didn’t update their Facebook app for a long time so they were facing the Facebook Feed Not Loading error.

In that scenario, you should update the Facebook app on your mobile as soon as possible to solve this error.

Date and Time

Facebook works based on your date and time settings and it matches the phone’s date and time with your location’s date and time.

If they don’t match then this could cause the Facebook Feed Not Loading problem. For that, change your phone’s date and time to the correct one and solve this problem.
