Facebook connection issue

Hello, 

I have a problem with the Facebook application. Since yesterday, my application has not been able to refresh my news. I have the following message on my screen : "There was a problem connecting to Facebook. Please check your connection and try again. " My connection is working because I use the WIFI and the 3G, I can use the Internet. 

Also, I don't always receive the notifications from the Hub when one of my events is updated.

Who can help me?

Re: Facebook connection issue

Hello,

I am confused...what device are you using? You have, in your forum profile, a "Bold 9700" listed. But, in your post, you mention "the Hub", which is a BB10 feature. So, please clarify your exact device.

Thanks!

Re: Facebook connection issue

Re the "connecting to Facebook" problem:

 

There have been a few threads on this already. Take a read through this one, for instance.

Essentially it will "fix itself".  I've had the same thing happen twice and it corrected with no action on my part.  It seems to be an interruption more than anything. For temporary use, try touch.facebook.com.  It works well in the browser.

Re: Facebook connection issue

I have had the same issues. Down 2 days up a day. Down again. I will wait for an app update. And use touch.facebook.com
