    Hi, I'm a newbie here, I hope I'm posting this in the correct place, I have a problem with the Facebook app for my new ipad, it's been working fine up until today but now I've lost the Update status Add photo/video Ask question buttonsFrom the top of the screen, also I can't comment on other peoples status posts, if I try I get the comments bar on the right hand side of the page and I can see other peoples comments but there is nowhere for me to type my comment! I have deleted the app and reinstalled it but it's still the same, any ideas?

    Have you tried changing the orientation of your screen? or maybe restarting your iPad?

    Yes changed orientation and yes restarted iPad but still the same! I have discovered that if I leave the newsfeed page and go to my home page the status/upload photo/check in buttons reappear but I still can't comment on other peoples status posts from either page! I have been changing the account and privacy settings on the Facebook app today so could it be something I've done?

    Best bet is to restart the app. Close it. Then remove it from the multitask bar to force close it.

    Then restart it. This will force it to start from scratch and whatever you've done or whatever may have changed should gave gone.

    Rebooting without force closing will not help, because it will simply restart the app in the same state as you left it.

    I am facing this problem too. I can't reply my friends' posts and this gets me flabbergasted! Tried to force close it. The problem still persists.

    Hello,
    Did you manage to sort this problem out as mine has just started doing the same for no reason. I have tried removing the app and loading it again but still can't comment on friends statuses?

    I have the same issue with not being able to comment on friends status, and have tried turning it off and re-installing. My sister has an ipad 2 and has had no problem. Just glad its not just me as i thought there some bigger issue, would be nice if its fixed soon

    I have exactly the same problem with my iPad2 - it started yesterday morning. Very strange as nothing has been updated

    I've force closed the app, deleted it and reinstalled it and it's still the same, no status/photo/check in at the top of the newsfeed page but they are there on my home page, but I stil can't post comments on any of my friends status posts although it is possible to comment on photo posts (the photo opens in a new window) there is one other thing I've noticed - the Facebook app on my iPod touch is exactly the same, i.e. no status/photo/check in at the top of the newsfeed page but I can comment of friends status post on the iPod because that opens in a new window as well, but interestingly the Facebook app on my android smart phone is totally unaffected, it is working perfectly! Any smart people out there with a solution to this problem? It's getting to be very annoying!
