We are having the same trouble. We can stream videos like crazy but only one device at a time can download pictures on Facebook. I bet even though they just got fined $100 million that them sorry SOBs are throttling Facebook because they would give AT&T money. AT&T is one of the most unethical wortless corporations on earth yet sadly with a near monopoly in many rural c ommunities you have no choice but to be screwed with there crap service or do without.

I haven't had any issues with Facebook on the laptop, the tablet or the smartphone and I've used the app & browser. 

 

If there's a problem, it's isolated.

Well I'm having same problem with Facebook.  It will not boot up.  Just keeps trying to connect but finally times out.   Everything else seems to be OK.  So something must have gone belly up in the Facebook system......perhaps hackers?

How can you say there's something wrong with FB when I just "liked" a post my SIL posted 2 minutes ago?

 

Edit:  AND I just posted a pic on his page*.  So I can't see that FB itself has issues...at least not at my house.

I chatted with the help folks earlier today who told me it was a nationwide issue with uverse and other ISPs having trouble with FB's DSN.  That was about 1pm CDT and they said it would be at least another 8-12 hours.  It's driving me crazy.

Gee....I don't know, Skeeter.  Guess I jumped to the conclusion because FB is the only thing that I cannot connect with....beginning yesterday evening...it was probably a problem on their end.  Once in a while it seems to connect but I see no posts newer than 8 hours ago.  And when I try to post....it won't accept it....won't do anything, in fact.  Just sits there and stares back at me.   Fortunately I have plenty to keep me busy.

 

Well.....I've raked my lawn....mowed it....killed it.....and about every other thing one might think of.....both good and bad.  BUT I guess I have never tried sweeping it with a broom.  That would make a good photo opportunity.Smiley Wink

To get off track just a bit @hpmsrm, my son-in-law has lawn envy for a certain yard in his neighborhood.  When he saw the guy sweeping his grass, he became somewhat obsessed with the man's regime.  He covertly takes photos and posts them to FB. 

 

It's pretty funny.

Note how much greener his yard is than the other yards.  He must know what he's doing!

I had an issue with photos loading on Facebook, but the core Facebook functionality otherwise continued to work.  I thought it might be a problem with some Facebok servers at the time, but it could have been a routing/peering problem.

Faccebook still refuses to load for me, and I've just spent a very unsatisfying 30 minutes on chat with u-verse help.  THEN they decide to check with the managers after putting me through yet another diagnostic.  This has been out for THREE days and their service reps don't know?

 

Can they not keep a log of my requests for help for the past three days and instead compel me to go through the whole thing all over again?

 

Really?

Have had the same issue for 3 days.  Everything fine except Facebook.  I can connect via wifi (laptop and phone) but not PC.  More annoying than anything else.  At least now I know it isn't just me.

According to a post on AT&T's Facebook page:

 

...there is a facebook issue affecting multiple people with different internet service providers and and not an AT&T U-verse related specific issue.
