  • abjparent

    Facebook comment button not working on my phone. Cannot comment on anything or even view other comments. What’s up?

  • disqus_mQBgt6MRlb

    About 5 days ago, whenever I open a Facebook photo in a new link, or merely open to view a photo, the page keeps reloading between the person’s timeline it was posted in, back to the photo, and back; nonstop. Never had this problem EVER! I’m on W7-64 using Firefox on a desktop computer. Same thing happens on other browsers as well, including PaleMoonx64. Anyone know what has changed or happened? Also, just shortly before this problem, FB has been adding advertising and suggested pages into my timeline, which I’m sure has happened to everyone. I don’t see hardly of my friend’s pages or posts anymore; there’s more ads and suggestions than friends anymore. Losing my interest in FB at all anymore if all they want to do is cram crap down my throat and not use the page for its primary intended purpose any more. I’d appreciate any comments/opinions from others on these issues. Thank you!
