Accepted Solutions

Guys currently there are 3 solutions until the update/script is fixed within fb update version 242. You decide which one you want to go with....


1. Download FB Lite and post using that until main app is fixed...


2. Login to FB and post through web browser until FB app is fixed or my way...


3. Go to settings on your Samsung phone, apps, find FB, tap it and tap 3 dots top right hand corner. Should say 'uninstall updates'. This will uninstall previous update that appears to contain the glitch. If you now try open the FB app it wont continue to launch without updating. Dont update it or you will be back to square 1. It will update using 242 again. Instead run a Google search for Facebook apk 241 and install once downloads to your phone. Launch FB and yay. You choose 👍🤦‍♂️😊

Yep. It's happening to A friend with a Samsung phone too. Thanks for responding 

I wonder if it's Samsung then as it was ok yesterday?


Try to delete data and cache of the App


Go to Settings/ Applications/ search Facebook/ Store / and delete all


After that try again.


What is your phone model?

Do you have some problem with all pics?

Are you try from web?

Have App all permisions?


Please check and feedback, thx:four-leaf-clover:







At the moment and for diferents reasons, we are using a tab with facebook registered in our web browse to upload files, the rest of part are working fine in Facebook.


Other people downloaded the Little version for Facebook, Facebook Little, and it works fine too.


Other users with more experience, was trying and was suscessfull others options with repositories old versions and blocking updates, and it worked for someones.


Those are the instants provisional as temporal solutions. We are working hard to complete and restore a full and useful Facebook updated version.

I hope the issue is resolved soon for you


You can use Samsung Member for issue registering as you must know or to wait to a necessary update FB fixed for us.


Thanks @


Hi. Yes I've cleared the cache and the data off the app. I've restarted the phone several times. 


Yep problems with all pics and screenshots. I can't upload from the camera either. Or to my stories. Messanger, Instagram etc are all fine and I can post from my pc. 


It was fine yesterday until around 4 pm.


And a few people seem to be having this issue. 


My phone is an A5 and a friend just confirmed from a screen shot that my operating system all seems to be up to date. 


Thank you

Could be a server problem in your country. Last days some Providers were touching things in data centers, could be an upgrade or something technical.


Let me try something for yours:


Download Link2SD

Go to search and Facebook imput

Hold press down in Facebook

In the new menu, choice Reinstall


Check please, I think do not fix the real problem but it will be reinstall all files and scripts

Descarga Facebook Little and Try to check too while main program could be fixed :thumbs-up-sign-emoji-modifier-fitzpatrick-type:

Other option is (in my S8+)


EDITED by me for no confusion----

For only advanced user but not definitive solution:

Go to Google Play / Facebook or APP

Desinstall (downgrade)

Go to facebook App and block Updates and install old verions (requesting) search in oficial site repository

Try again


There are easiest solutions in the thread as resumen to you:

Install temporality Facebook Little or use a web browser tab with Facebook to upload pics at the moment


Sorry for edition RpBP:four-leaf-clover:
