A bazillion people are having more trouble with Facebook iPad app

In the past less-than 48 hours, my Dec. 2011 post “How to comment with the new Facebook iPad app” has buh-lown up. My blog has gotten almost 1,800 hits, with the majority of folks looking at this post. What’s going on?!

I’m really sorry to say, but I don’t know. My app is working properly (sorry!).  Readers have commented that, basically, their Facebook iPad app isn’t allowing them to comment on posts in their newsfeeds. When these users click on “comment” on a post, a box should pop up on the right and you should be allowed to comment. See my photo above.

But for a lot of folks, it seems this box is disappearing before they can comment, and it’s not reappearing when they tap “comment.” It doesn’t seem to be a problem exclusive to different iPad versions. And the smarties that we are, we’ve all checked the App Store to make sure we have the latest edition of the Facebook iPad app, which we do, from April 2, 2012. It also isn’t a problem with wireless keyboards.

Let’s keep discussing this and helping each other figure out a solution! I’ll do my research and you do yours. It looks like Facebook needs to fix a glitch…and from the looks of my blog stats, it needs to be fixed fast!

    I’m having the same problem and it seemed to kick in the same day that I got a notification on my PC from FB that I have been switched to Timeline. Any connection?????

    Mine seems o.k today as if it’s fixed itself while I’ve been sleeping….very weird! xx

    Mine is doing it too. The comment box at the bottom appears while the pic and text is loading and then it refreshes and the comment box disappears. If you try to type in the comment box while it’s loading, the text you type won’t send and it disappears with the box when the slide out window refreshes.
