Tip & How-To about Facebook Social Network
when you view facebook and it is slow to respond to your actions, go
between pages etc this can be caused be any number of issues.
1) It may be the facebook website is overloaded(to many visitors) and is running slow. There is really nothing you can do about this other than to voice your frustration at Facebook by contacting them. You will have to wait and try again at another time to see if it is running faster.
2) Your internet connection is experiencing high latency. You can check your internet connection by trying other websites. Are they going slow as well? If not, then you can really rule this problem out. If you do however experience slowness at other sites then you may be experiencing a degraded internet connection. I recommend a couple tips at this point,
--If you are downloading files from the internet, or have other computers or devices using your internet connection this can use up all your bandwidth and slow down your connection. Try disabling any other devices on your network to see if this helps. This can especially be the case if you are downloading music and videos online. If you have a wireless home network and it is unsecured(no password set on wireless connection) then other people like neighbors may be using your connection. You will need to set a password on your router so you can stop unauthorized access to your network.
-Try to power cycle all of your network devices. Do it in this order, turn off your internet modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds turn on your modem, after another 30 seconds turn on your router and after 30 seconds turn on your computer. Now try and see if your internet connection is improved.
-Check network cables and splitters. Make sure all of your cables are plugged in and firmly. If you have cable splitters, go ahead and unscrew the cables and screw them back in firmly.
-Lastly, contact your Internet Service Provider(ISP). Your ISP may be able to resolve the issue on their end or send a tech out to investigate the degraded internet connection.
3)Your computer may have performance issues. If a lot of programs are running on your computer this will obviously slow things down. Try stopping any additional programs and see if this helps.
4)One other additional step you can take is to try and clear your internet browser cache. In Internet Explorer go to Tools > Internet Options and click on the new window make sure you are on the first tab. Click Delete under the Browsing History section. In FireFox go to the Firefox button at the top left(newest version) and hover over History. Click on Clear Recent History and make sure all boxes are checked except Site Preferences. Once you clear the cache be sure to restart the browser.
