Reason For The Facebook Content Error
Given below are some of the reasons as to why you may face the Facebook Content Error-
You Have Been Blocked By The User
The very first reason for this error to occur is because you may have been blocked by the user. If the user has blocked you, and their post is shared by someone who is a mutual friend to you both, then you may face this error.
You should try searching for the profile of the user. If you are unable to find their profile, then you may have been blocked by the user.
If you can find the profile of the user and can send them a message, then you haven’t been blocked by them. There can be some other reason as to why you may face this issue.
You may face this error due to some issues with the server. Facebook of course is one of the biggest social media available, and there are chances that there may be server errors on the platform.
There are lesser chances of you facing the server error especially with Facebook, but if you have been facing the issue due to the server error, then there is nothing that you can do except wait for the server to be up again.
Content May Have Been Removed
If the post/content has been removed by the user, and it was earlier shared by someone in your friend list, then you may face a similar issue.
In most cases, the content is removed by the owner. But there may be instances when the content is removed by Facebook if it foes against the community standard.
You May Have Been Logged Out
If you are logged out of Facebook, then also you may face the same issue. Ensure you are logged in to your account. If you are logged in, then try refreshing the page, and then you should be able to view the post.
Age Or Location Restriction
Another reason as to why you may get the error is because of the age or location restriction. If the owner of the post/content has restricted the content to be viewed by a specific age group or specific location.
If you are unable to see the content because of the location restriction, then you can prefer using the VPN to view the location-restricted content.
If the content is restricted by age, then you can use the account of the adult to view the content.
Facebook Profile Is Deleted Or Deactivated
If the Facebook profile of the post owner has been deactivated or deleted, then you may get the message ‘The content is not available right now.’
If the post is shared by someone, and later the account of the owner has been deactivated or deleted, you may not be able to see the posts shared by them.
If the privacy has been set by the users then also you may see this message. There are certain privacy settings that the user can set- Public, Friends, Friends except.., Specific friends, etc.
If the privacy setting is set as public, then everyone can view the content. If the privacy setting is set as friends, then you may only be able to view the content if you are the friend of the owner of the content.
If the owner of the content has set the privacy as Friends except and you are in the list of friends to except then you may not be able to view the content.
If the owner of the content has set the privacy as Specific friends and you are not on the list of specific friends, then you may not be able to view the content.
This is the reason as to why you may get ‘The content is not available right now.’ It is a content error that you may get, and when this happens it’s usually because the owner has restricted access.
We hope this article helped you understand why you may face ‘The content is not available right now.’
