    Default HTC One (M8): Wifi - Facebook issue

    I've noticed that 90% of the time I am on wifi at my house Facebook will not load content. It will only show some stuff if previously loaded.
    My computers, TVs, wife's iPhone 5...all work fine on my wifi. The only issue is Facebook on my phone.

    Please advise...

    You can't uninstall FB on this phone. I cleared data, cache, and uninstalled updates....still has the issues. Anyone?

    No issues here. So not 100% sure. Although I am in the Facebook beta program so the app updates like every other day for me.

    Also: Not running the stock ROM. It did work fine when I did, but I've since run a "custom ROM" off XDA (ARHD5)

    Same issue here. About once or twice a day, while on wifi, the app won't update, even if I swipe to refresh manually. Force closing the app seems to fix it for a bit.

    Press that button at the bottom right of your phone that shows all of your running apps. Then swipe up on Facebook and watch it disappear. Then go and reopen Facebook.

    No, Att.
    I had to ditch the app, I put a browser shortcut to FB on my home page. Lame.

    Same here, as soon as i turn wifi off and leave only the data plan work, facebook loads like a rocket. I've been looking at forums for advice for an hour or so without luck. Lots of morons saying that THEY dont have a problem accessing facebook themselves... yeah very usefull, why dont you go look for friends there instead of here...

    We used to have that problem, only on Comcast. Not just my M8 my wife's S5 too. We would just stay on Sprint until Comcast changed our down from 50 to 110 for free, then it started working again.

    My wife and I are having this same problem right now. Both have Verizon. We have Comcast internet. Facebook, Google hangouts, YouTube don't work right when on WiFi. But other apps do.

    Anybody get any resolution for this issue?

    Cool Re: HTC One (M8): Wifi - Facebook issue

    1. Open page with the available "Wi-Fi" networks (Settings, WI-FI)
    2. Tap on the "3 dots" in the upper right corner
    3. "Wi-Fi Direct"
    4. Tap on the "3 dots" in the upper right corner
    5. "Rename device"
    6. Replace "Android_ed2c" with "HTC One" (or whatever you want) and hit "OK"

    I tried that, still no luck.

    I found posts on comcast's site about this but nobody said what they did to fix it. The best thing I saw was that it eventually started working right again.
