Reasons why you are unable to post on the Facebook app

Below are the reasons for not being able to make posts on the Facebook app.

Problems with the app

The first culprit is a bug with the app.

This is especially likely if the problem of not being able to make posts arises following an app update.

This can cause the app to not run properly, and the app itself is the cause of the problem in this case.

Confirm communication environment

You may not be able to post properly if the network environment is poor.

If you are using your mobile data network, you should check if your carrier hasn’t placed a restriction based on your data consumption.

Problems with Facebook

It may well be that the problem isn’t with the app or with your device but rather with Facebook’s server being down.

This is likely the case when you have trouble logging in when there was nothing wrong just moments before.

Account suspension

If you happen to have trouble not just making posts but also sending friend requests and such, it may be that your account has been suspended due to violation of regulations.

This is especially likely to be the case if you have several accounts, use a false name or if you’re causing other users trouble.

Suspension of certain functions can happen just by using the same function over and over in a short timeframe, and the suspension can last several days.

Solutions for when you are unable to post on the Facebook app

Below are the solutions for when you are unable to post content through the Facebook app.

Problems with the app

If the app wasn’t updated correctly or if you have trouble starting it up, you may not be able to make posts.

There’s nothing much you can do about bugs in the app, but there are times when the problem will disappear by reinstalling the app.

If the problem persists, you’ll have to wait for Facebook to fix the problem.

Confirm communication environment

Posting will be affected if your communication environment is poor.

Even if you were able to log in, depending on the strength of your connection you may not be able to make posts.

If you are using your mobile data network, it may be that your carrier has placed a data restriction.

If so, switching to a WiFi connection will solve the problem.

We don’t recommend using the app in areas where the network connection is poor such as in the mountains, by the sea or underground as this may cause data loss.

Problems with Facebook

If the server crashes due to excessive traffic, you won’t be able to use Facebook, regardless of whether you’re using the app or the web version.

If that is the case, you can only wait for Facebook to fix the problem.

Account suspension

Your account may get suspended if you cause trouble to other users or hold several accounts.

There is also a possibility that you’ll never be able to use the account again if you’re caught using several accounts or if you use a false name.

The suspension can last from a couple of hours to several days, and there is no way of unlocking it.

So if you get suspended you should solve the cause for the suspension and wait for it to be lifted.

Summary

  • Problems with the app
  • Check your network environment
  • Problems with Facebook

  • Account suspension

In this article we looked at the various causes for not being able to post on the Facebook app and how to solve the problem.

There are many reasons why you may not be able to post, but account suspension would be the least likely.

There’s no reason your account will be suspended as long as you don’t have multiple accounts or if you don’t cause other users trouble.

We recommend using the web browser version to post content if you are unable to do so on the app.

You’ll be able to post content on the web browser version as long as the Facebook server is running so it’s a safe bet when you desperately want to post something.

I hope the article was of use to all Facebook app users.
