For few days now my Groups in FB have been acting a bit weirdly. I can post, but then the post doesn't show to me. Others can see the posts, and like/comment on it. I get notifications, but when I click on them I get a message saying that the post has been removed. I have no bans or reports against me. When I go into the groups none of my old posts show up, but I can see media (images) that I have shared. I have contacted FB, but with no response...
what device(s) are you seeing this on?
Hi, it's a Laptop (web browser - Microsoft Edge); but also the same on my phone (Android) and other tablet devices. I've also tried the App for the laptop and it's the same.
have you tried changing the Group feed, ie. "Most Relevant", "Newest activity", "New posts"?
Yes, tried many many different settings over the last few days to try to resolve this. Can't find anything that would make this happen.
can you see your posts if you click your profile pic at the top of the Group page?
No, it says 'No New Posts' despite me having made a new post today and people are responding to it. I just don't see it!
could be a temporary issue due to them tweaking things.
someone else posted a similar issue earlier today...
Thanks - do you have a link to their post, I'll see if they've tried anything else that I haven't.
A bit more testing today: using Chrome or firefox makes no difference, still no posts and very limited udates. I've cleared caches, closed FB on other devices and logged in and out about 20 times! Using my wife's account I can see my posts and the updated groups, using the same laptop that I'm using. Getting more and more frustrated with this now.
I can understand the frustration, we hear a lot of it on here. Facebook has many issues. Have you emailed support? [email protected]
they may not respond right away but it's worth a shot.
I missed your first post about already contacting them. You know I only know of one person that said Facebook emailed them back.
Well, after a few days of not being able to see any new posts, all seems to be now back to normal... I wait for the next wobble.
