    Facebook won't load.

    Facebook has become an integral part of many people's daily lives by keeping them connected to friends and family, which can make not being able to get on the site quite frustrating. Facebook does experience occasional downtime and other issues, but if you're consistently having problems accessing it, a browsing filter, firewall or outdated software could be the culprit.

    Browser Requirements:

    You may have problems accessing Facebook if you haven't upgraded your Internet browser in awhile. As of 2011, Facebook recommends using Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3 or Safari 4 for the best user experience. Updates to these browsers are free and can be found at the companies' websites. Some older computers may not be able to run the latest browser version and, therefore, have trouble displaying Facebook and other sites correctly.

    Home Blocks:
    Home computers also have tools to block certain websites; parents often install them to keep kids' Web activity under control. If this is your situation, you will have to talk to Mom and Dad about unblocking Facebook for you. If you have a PC with multiple user accounts, the "admin" is often the only account with permission to install or uninstall filtering software and extensions; you'll need to be logged into this account to change a filter's settings

    Many computers and their antivirus programs now enable firewalls by default. Firewalls help protect your computer from malicious viruses and software, but sometimes they block access to sites you legitimately want to access. If you suspect your firewall is limiting your Facebook access, check the settings in Windows' Control Panel or in the program that enables the firewall, such as your antivirus software or wireless router software. Making the settings more permissible could solve the problem.

    I hope you find it very helpful.

    For months I would sign on to Facebook and it would load it- no problems. Then suddenly it just won't load Facebook any more. No problems with any other website, etc. -just Facebook. I have an acer laptop 5050

    If you are using internet explorer, download firefox and see if that fixes it. If you download firefox, and it doesn't work in both Internet Explorer and Firefore, then it is most likely a firewall or virus issue.

    Run a complete virus scan using a good virus scanning program like Malwarebytes.

    Check your software or router for any firewall settings that could prevent Facebook from working.

    may be you are under security/firewall that block the site. try to contact your administrator. or simply try to use proxy or tunneling site like www.hidemyass.com

    or try other web-browser like Mozilla firefox, ie, Google chrome, opera, make sure flash and other plug-ins are installed correctly.

    try to set your internet security mid-low... try to turn off or configure your firewall/antivirus firewall software it may block the site.
