    Looking for why Facebook won't open. Already:
    1. Loaded new app to do authentization update
    2. Turned off and tuned on
    3. Deleted FB and re downloaded
    What next?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Which iPad do you have?
    Try closing the FB app and any other apps you have open - When an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly

    You could also try a reset here - Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.
