Facebook ‘No posts to show’ bug affecting more users, thinks you need friends

Facebook 'No posts to show' bug affecting more users, thinks you need friends

A Facebook bug that claims that there are "No posts to show" on a lot of newsfeeds is making the Friday night of some users seem like they are leading boring lives.

The blank newsfeed glitch displays the "No posts" message along with a somewhat insulting "Find Friends" button, whether you have 100 friends or 1,000 "friends."

This error message has confused a number of users of the social network, who have taken to Twitter to express their frustration and confusion.

"Facebook has broken. Says there are no posts to show and wants me to find friends. This is sadder than it should be right [now]," tweeted Darkbander.

So far, it appears to only be affecting users of the web version of Facebook, with smartphone and tablets apps able to access the normal newsfeed.

Fix ‘No posts to show’ bug is non-existent

The user complains extend to Facebook’s own troubleshooting pages, where users haven’t been able to find a solution to the glitch.

What’s interesting is that some of the troubleshooting threads were created up to six months ago, meaning this bug has reared its ugly, unpopular-feeling head before.

The threads have been filled with a deluge of new posts from the last several hours, with users asking for tips on how to remedy the situation and fearing that their posts have been wiped clean.

"When I go to see my newsfeed, it says that there are no posts to display, then suggests I find friends." wrote frustrated Facebook user Kristen Fraser on the support forums.

"I, of course, have friends. All my groups can be accessed. Chats can be accessed. Friends can be accessed. Just not my news feed."

We contacted Facebook hoping to hear back about a reason for the new "No posts" error message and a possible solution. We’ll update this story when the company responds.
