Facebook does not allow my newsfeeds to come in on ipad you see blurry in back ground and cant open my messages on facebook


  1. First of all, you must have messenger app to open your messages
  2. try closing the app, restarting your ipad & re-open the FB app again.
  3. Uninstall app & install a clean version again
  4. if above didn't work; you can use safari to open your FB account as if you are opening it from a desktop/laptop

Repeatedly I unfriendingand blocking a person who just keeps coming up on my Facebook how do I get rid of them


You can also block a person on your iPad.
Go to "Settings" on your iPad.
next, go to "Messages"
to the left of that, you'll see blocked.
Open that and input the person's phone number you wish to be blocked.
Also, you have to block a person on Facebook, or delete the contact on Facebook first, before you can delete it from your pad.

How to tell if Papa pear is connecting to my friends on facebook


Try logging out from Facebook from inside PPS, do a restart on the iPad (hold down Home and Power button together for 10 seconds) then start PPS and connect to FB. If that doesn't work, delete the game and reinstall it. (This is standard troubleshooting for most apps)

Cannot open Facebook on my iPad. Keep getting message after entering password "cannot communicate with server." Cannot close account. NOTHING WORKS!


This answer appears after many, many complaints of the same thing on an Apple Forum (link included).

here is the latest answer, for which I can't take credit beyond pointing you to it and hoping it works:

Re: can't sign in to facebook on my ipad, error message 'enter the Facebook password for "" in Settings.' in response to tracey104 I have been struggling with this error message since it first appeared on my iPhone many, many moons ago. I have tried to fix a few times but gave up trying.
I tried my Facebook password like it requested and got the "..could not communicate with server error message" like everyone else. Today it showed up again and I vowed to fix it once and for. In addition to my iPhone, I have an IPad 4. I have never seen the message appear on my Ipad. In my iPad I went into settings, Facebook, and lo and behold i saw my name right below settings. I clicked my name and it said:
Full Name XXXXX XXXXX (my first and last name)
User Name XXXX.XXXXX.33 (<<<--- this is the key to the whole mess. Firstname dot lastname dot 33)
Password ooooooooooo (this is your facebook login password)
I stared at the User Name in amazement. This is probably what the facebook setting was needing, but it was only asking for password. So here is what I did:
I hit Delete Account and it then it asked for those three pieces of information. So I entered in my iPhone what was on my Ipad 4 and it cleared everything up. Now I was lucky I had another apple device with my User Name already inputted. Where would I have found out that crucial piece of information if I had not had another apple device? It is part of your Facebook login web address. Another place you can find it is: Log into facebook account, go to About and look for your contact info, it will be something like this: bill.smith.22@facebook.com bill.smith.22 is your User Name
So basically your Facebook has three names attached to it: #1 your name = Bill Smith #2 User Name = bill.smith.22 #3 email or phone that you put in your web browser with your password to log in to facebook. Confused? So was I. I hope my instructions weren't confusing.

Please post a reply if it does work!

I am assuming you have tried the Apple standard action of removing the Facebook app completely and then reinstall?

How do I get an answer to my problem? I do not want the new version of messenger on my I pad. I want the old version reinstated. I hate the new one and was happy with my old way of sending messages to


Messenger is a Facebook product. They will regularly update it and those updates will be available and installed on your iPad. You will always receive the latest version of the app that's compatible with your iPad 2. You can try contacting Facebook, but it's unlikely they're going to support the older version of their software when there are always going to be newer (and improved?) versions available. If you can be specific about what you don't like (rather than "I hate this awful new version" which does nothing for anyone), telling Facebook about it might give them something to think about.

There ARE other nice messaging apps, including Apple's own Messages, used by millions of users successfully. You have options.
