  • Belen_BWT BWT (@Belen_BWT) reported

    How good would life be if @Twitter had an edit feature if @netflix had a removal feature if @facebook wasn't a giant security problem if @YouTube didn't constantly interrupt with ads if @tumblr still allowed free expression of art

  • StaceyohxD stacey (@StaceyohxD) reported

    @AlAkibOfficial @facebook @markzbarabak @AlAkibOfficial We are sorry for this issue. We have restored access to your account. Please resume Facebook use as normal.

  • Sydney_Inc Queen OfThe Food Age (@Sydney_Inc) reported

    @805foodie @facebook Yes I am also having this issue and it is really ruining my productivity.

  • TKev_86 T.Kev (@TKev_86) reported from London, England

    @facebook can you #fix the home button please, some people are trying to work here

  • TheDirtydoc Jessica Denny (@TheDirtydoc) reported

    @facebook my app has been down for 2 days. Photos keep deleting from posts & they are uneditable. There are grey boxes w/question marks where media used to be. I have submitted >10 tickets & none of them appear in my support inbox. Now my post & comments are completely missing

  • Willwineguy Will Schneider (@Willwineguy) reported

    @BoardofDeputies @PhilR_R @LaurenKeiles @nicolamen @facebook @CST_UK @lucianaberger @JoelofSalmon @facebook is one of the problems.

  • jsasser42 Jon Sasser (@jsasser42) reported

    To all those social media managers and admins, @facebook has eliminated their scheduling option for posts. On a PC, you now have to take several more steps to do it. On a mobile device, there are no ways to do it. Big time fail on this one. Come on Facebook, fix this issue!

  • PaytheTollman TheHODLAnalyst (@PaytheTollman) reported

    @dennishegstad @facebook @LiveRecover it'll take a day max. Just say you didn't violate policy and they have made a mistake. It's a glitch a lot of people have been experiencing

  • matuniox Matt (@matuniox) reported

    @dennishegstad @facebook @LiveRecover Had multiple ads get taken down last night that have been running for months because they went against their ad policy supposedly.

  • gvenig1370 Ganesh Venigalla (@gvenig1370) reported

    Companies like @google, @facebook and @Microsoft are working to reduce carbon footprints caused due to their massive server clusters. Why don't you work on to solve problems created due to your business. @deepigoyal @harshamjty

  • heatherbarger Heather Milne Barger (@heatherbarger) reported

    Facebook consistently limits news org's story reach. A station should not need to, by chance, work hard to get a FB rep who then says "our bad; don't go through our process, contact me." Fix this @facebook & support #journalism.

  • stevieseay steviemarie (@stevieseay) reported

    @heydenisenadine @Spotify @facebook I did last night! Spent hours trying to fix the problem.

  • seanludwig Sean Ludwig (@seanludwig) reported

    @TIGERBRISTOL @katie_mckenna @facebook I was also running into this issue. Thanks for this workaround @TIGERBRISTOL

  • login123kid45 Stephen Nash (@login123kid45) reported

    @mewe is so much better than @facebook yes @facebook has been in business for a long time but, sooner or later they'll be out & @mewe will take over & fix everything that's wrong with social media today

  • JamesFallon4 James Fallon (@JamesFallon4) reported

    @Kiyanak @facebook Big businesses like them rarely ever care about positive change. Once they start having boards, shareholders etc. it ends up being driven by people’s greed. I think a lot of the worlds problems stem from huge corporations and their attitudes.

  • JArnholz Jonathan Arnholz (@JArnholz) reported


  • DrPaulBaguley Dr Paul Baguley (@DrPaulBaguley) reported

    @craigwilde @facebook @boredpanda Terrible! Hope they help you @craigwilde - @facebook is difficult to speak to .

  • Jeffward75 Jeff Ward (@Jeffward75) reported

    Replace the word Vaping with Danking=THC Use Counterfeit products are responsible Problem is @ebay @Facebook @twitter @instagram & Darksites ALL openly sell fake THC & Juul Pods. Enforcement is the issue. I've reported to DEA & Sherriff's Office. Info I will forward to you & news

  • TinaMcGugan 🤦🏼‍♀️Karmageddon🤦🏼‍♀️ (@TinaMcGugan) reported

    @Rschooley @facebook will take money from anyone advertising anything. I have RARELY seen an ad on Facebook that didn't stink to high heaven of a scam. It's a cesspool, and it takes them forever to take down scam ads.

  • blueingreenemo Blowing My Whistle Since 2016 (@blueingreenemo) reported

    @Andrew_Cassidy @facebook I'm having the same problem

  • SLG_footy Sarah The Striker (@SLG_footy) reported

    @DerrenLitten @facebook I actually had more issues with Twitter as I was bullied. Can't delete Twitter cos I use it to talk to people that haven't got Facebook !!!

  • lucas_and_mew Lucas Notch (@lucas_and_mew) reported

    .@Facebook @Instagram are down again #BigTechCensorship #BigTech

  • sryenchik S (@sryenchik) reported

    @AngelaBelcamino @facebook Delete Facebook. Shut Mark down.

  • iluvwinterpark I LUV Winter Park (@iluvwinterpark) reported

    Used to endless issues on @facebook, but, UNFORTUNATELY, been much more common of late on @Instagram, as well. Examples: Would be GREAT if you could respond to a question (duh) and STAY on a photo without getting kicked off. #epicfail

  • porkbunphoto wolfinnyc (@porkbunphoto) reported

    @facebook I and a bunch of (confirmed) friends are having problems opening posts of the gallery type. This Started happening a few days just freezes until I press Back. I'm on android Galaxy S7. I tried re-installing the app to no avail, my friend has GS9; same thing.

  • Mel629_ 𝓜𝓮𝓵 (@Mel629_) reported

    @ASaunders_PGH @facebook This is something they’re going to need to fix. That was a super important function.

  • mrabdussalam Abdus Salam (@mrabdussalam) reported

    @hpdailyrant @facebook I feel this comes down to individual choices rather than a collective conscience. Most of the designers I know genuinely want to combat issues around privacy and data protection. Whether or not the management shares the same sentiment, that's a separate debate.

  • KimDoyleWille Kim Doyle Wille (@KimDoyleWille) reported

    @facebook Now, .@facebook - I can't share ANYTHING from the Page I admin! When I hit Share and click on 'Share to Page', it starts to populate & then disappears! Y'all are making it really hard on us Page admins the past 2 days since we can't schedule posts OR share them! Please FIX ASAP!

  • TarynDeVere Taryn De Fear 🧛‍♀️ (@TarynDeVere) reported

    @VonnyR7 @seriouslyhilary @squarespace @facebook @instagram I don't have a Facebook shop set up so I can't set up an IG shop. So I don't know how to fix it, sorry!

  • TravelHostFTL TravelHost FTL (@TravelHostFTL) reported

    @Andrew_Cassidy @facebook been having that issue for a few weeks on and off

  • BeardedHeckler Matt Lamour (@BeardedHeckler) reported

    Facebook's ability to schedule posts from the homepage of your page is down, making my job take about 50% longer than it should. Wouldn't be so bad if it were hourly work. Get your shit together, @facebook

  • neomessiah10 neomessiah (@neomessiah10) reported

    @facebook Help! Please fix the White Screen problem on my Facebook.

  • KimDoyleWille Kim Doyle Wille (@KimDoyleWille) reported

    Hey @facebook - Page admins like me are reporting to DownDetector the past 2 days re no 'Share' function appearing on photo albums and NO scheduling option appearing. In the past hour ALL share functions in Pages are NOT working! Hard to make you $$ when we can't share!

  • chujangnim_ ᴍᴀʀɢᴀ🌼 // kinda ia bcs of school (@chujangnim_) reported

    my fb is crashing:<<< please fix it @facebook

  • Mare_Nee_Nell Mary Nell (@Mare_Nee_Nell) reported

    @corywcomer @Karascents @Twitter @facebook @fbnewsroom @FBBusiness @johnfawkes @dougkillmer @itsnatecole @erica2point0 @somearts93 Facebook users were already getting locked out for reporting fake accounts before the problem with submitting an ID. And it didn't start last week.

  • Pat586 eshow (@Pat586) reported

    @facebook I can’t get into my account and I’ve gone through all facebook help can do. Basically when I sign in to add a new email I get the email with the code but i have nowhere to put the code it just sits there idk if you don’t work with chrome well or what. Plz help

  • _cirqueduCelay (@_cirqueduCelay) reported

    i really would appreciate it if @facebook.. (@messenger specifically) would fix whatever is causing me to have to turn my active status off 100 times a day. clearly reporting it as a problem isn’t working.

  • CMGAP Celeste Guidice (@CMGAP) reported

    Day 3 - @facebook - support for ads on a business account and can't get problem sorted out! UGH!

  • EmmaleighKelly Emmaleigh Kelly 🔥 (@EmmaleighKelly) reported

    Prt3 I was banned for a whole week on @facebook until today. Whilst scrolling, I found a gif of a woman's bare ass, being spanked by a male in slow motion. It has been shared thousands of times. My post, was me in underwear (similar to a bikini) Only mine was taken down.

  • Mare_Nee_Nell Mary Nell (@Mare_Nee_Nell) reported

    @Karascents @corywcomer @Twitter @facebook @fbnewsroom @FBBusiness @johnfawkes @dougkillmer @itsnatecole @erica2point0 @somearts93 Yes, I've seen lot of people are having that problem, but not everyone who was locked out has been unable to submit their ID. That's why I believe it is two separate issues. I've been reading a lot about it over the past few weeks. I hope something is done soon.

  • cristianorueda krisztian. (@cristianorueda) reported

    @Junaidkayani_ @FBBusiness @facebook All of my business accounts has this error. It's a shame.

  • Junaidkayani_ Junaid Kayani (@Junaidkayani_) reported

    @FBBusiness @facebook - A few people having this issue, trying to boost one of my posts but keep getting the same error message: "Invalid country targeting for WhatsApp destination ads. Please remove any EU countries and India from your targeting". #Help

  • Junaidkayani_ Junaid Kayani (@Junaidkayani_) reported

    @philiplyons @facebook Exactly the same issue @FBBusiness, literally getting nowhere in terms of support as well. #fixthisshit

  • PhotograFixUK Tom Marshall (PhotograFix) (@PhotograFixUK) reported

    @philiplyons @facebook I'm also getting this error and the same is happening.

  • joseph11345 TJ (@joseph11345) reported

    @NeeleshTax @dineshwadera @nsitharaman @nsitharamanoffc @FinMinIndia @facebook @Twitter @PMOIndia @narendramodi @rashtrapatibhvn @cbic_india Simple solution. Bring GST rates to 5 % to all with no input credit. Remove GST exemption given to education and medical services. It will solve all problems

  • louise8346 Louise Huitson (@louise8346) reported

    @breakfake @facebook @fb_engineering Absolutely nothing except for when I reported it to the trademark team who took my item down from marketplace, but they basically said it’s nothing to do with them, even though it was them that have screwed my account. Missing out on so much 😢

  • MfekaMondli Mondli Mfeka (@MfekaMondli) reported

    @LwaziGB @facebook you need to login on computer not your phone

  • jmurraybjj John Murray (@jmurraybjj) reported

    24 hours an counting @facebook , why would anyone run ads on your site your consumer relations are terrible.

  • JackWilson7543 Jack Wilson (@JackWilson7543) reported

    @VanityFair That’s because he is. His abject failure to respond to the problems of 2016 and foreign intervention clearly show he doesn’t care. @facebook is a clear and present danger to American values and democracy.

  • _Lid_R Lid (@_Lid_R) reported

    I contacted @facebook for the first time ever today, they responded immediately & resolved my issue instantly. Can't fault that service. 👏🏻

    @facebook @MrsKHutchison Your reporting function is also not working, I have reported it every day since Sunday and it is not appearing in the help centre inbox

  • jeffchao228 Jeffrey Hyde (@jeffchao228) reported

    @facebook , there is some massive Connection and Speed issues going on with your site tonight, and it started just shortly after 4:30 PM, and we need Explanation why this is going on, are you have a DDoS Attack again
