Since May of 2018, many Facebook users have been unable to post on Facebook. The ability to like posts, comment on posts, and post to your own profile have been unaffected.
However, for a short time, you could not post on Facebook through third-party apps or via the mobile app. This was due to temporary API restrictions put in place by Facebook.
API stands for application programming interface and is used by online services to enable third-party developers to create apps that work with their platform.
Facebook uses APIs to give developers access to some of the site’s features so that they can build other apps that use that data. For example, an app might ask the API for all of a user’s friends so that it can display their profiles.
However, in this case, some of the APIs were disabled so that they could fix some issues with privacy settings.
If you are having trouble posting on Facebook
You can try to post on your Facebook profile or to a group you are part of. If you are having trouble posting on your own profile, try posting on someone else’s profile.
If you are unable to post on your own profile, you can create a new one where you can post freely. You can also create groups where you can post and interact with other people.
Keeping up with social media is a personal choice. You do not have to follow the crowd or give in to the pressure to use Facebook if it is making you unhappy.
If you want to stay aware of what people are doing, there are other ways to do so that do not involve spending a substantial amount of time on Facebook.
If you feel like you have been spending too much time on social media, try limiting your time on it for a week to see if that makes a difference.
Make sure your privacy settings are correct
A lot of people make the mistake of having their privacy settings too open. If you have your settings so that anyone can see your posts and information, then anyone can see your post even if they are not friends with you.
People can also look at your photos and information about you. They can also see who you are friends with, which makes it easier for them to be targeted by hackers or trolls.
It is important to make sure that your settings are set to private so that only people you want seeing your content can. This will help keep you safe and prevent any unwanted eyes or ears from seeing or hearing what you post.
Try using the mobile app
If you are having trouble accessing Facebook through the desktop site, try using the mobile app. Although there is not an official Facebook app for Android, there is one for Amazon Fire OS and Apple phones.
There are also many unofficial Facebook apps in the Google Play store and Apple App Store. Some of these may have more features than the official app, so if you are looking for something specific, look into those apps.
If you do not have a phone, you can download the Amazon Fire OS version of the Facebook app or search in the app stores for Facebook. These options may be helpful if someone in your family can’t access the internet but has a phone to download the app.
If you are having trouble accessing the internet on your computer but have a phone, try downloading the Facebook mobile app and logging into that way. This will still allow you to post and take part in some of the functions of Facebook.
Talk to someone who can help you post on Facebook
If you are having a hard time getting the help you need, reach out to someone who can help you post on Facebook.
Facebook has a community of people with disabilities who help each other post on Facebook. You can also get help from family members or friends, disability advocates, and disability services organizations.
If you do not have anyone to turn to, then contact one of these groups and ask how you can get help posting on Facebook. You can also visit the disability advocacy groups online and see if anyone needs help posting on Facebook.
It can be very difficult to accept that you cannot post on Facebook and that you need outside help, but it is important to get the right support. Once you do, you will be able to share your story with your friends and family on your own profile.
Hopefully this article helped you understand what disassociation is and how to talk to someone about it. Disassociation is a common symptom of mental health issues, so don’t feel like you are alone in feeling this way.
Post on another social media site
If you are unable to post on your Facebook account, then you can always post on another social media site. There are many sites that offer the same features as Facebook, like Instagram or Twitter.
Posting on Instagram is a nice way to get your photos out there and gain new followers. You can also do this with Twitter, as it is more of a direct message app.
If you have trouble with these apps, then make an account and start posting! It is fun to have additional sites to post on and gain new followers.
Something important to note is that people cannot contact you via Instagram or Twitter unless they follow you. This is why it is important to keep your accounts active and maintain a good following so that people can still contact you.
Consult a specialist
While many people find it easy to ignore Facebook, it can be harder to leave it. This is why it’s important to consult a specialist if you need help deleting your account permanently.
Although you can delete your account on your own, you will need to visit in-person at the Facebook headquarters to do so. Only account specialists can complete this process.
Facebook has a verifiable identity specialist program that trains and certifies individuals and organizations to help people create and manage their accounts on Facebook.
This is an important part of the organization’s efforts toward accountability and ensuring users have access to trusted resources when creating an account.
If you are struggling with anxiety or depression and feel like Facebook is contributing to that, then having a specialist help you delete your account may be helpful.
Check your internet connection
If you are unable to log into your Facebook account, the first thing you should do is check your internet connection.
If you have access to a phone, try checking Facebook on the phone’s app to see if you have access there as well. If you have access on your phone but not on your computer, then the problem is most likely with your computer.
If you have access on both devices, then check to see if your browser is up to date. If it is current, then try re-downloading it.
Check your network settings and make sure that they are set correctly. If they are not, then fix them and try logging back into Facebook again!
If all of this does not work, then we recommend trying another internet connection for a few minutes to confirm that the issue is not due to an issue with the internet itself.
Reboot your device
If your device has been having issues with its operating system, then it’s best to reboot the device. A reboot can solve many software issues.
If you are using an iPhone or Android device, try deleting the app and re-downloading it. This way you can make sure there were no software glitches during the update process.
If you need help doing this, contact the support team of your phone carrier and they will be able to help you. They are very used to people coming in with phone issues so they will be able to help you fix this problem.
If none of that works, then it may be time to get a new phone.
