Clear cache

Androids have a handy app manager that clears the cache before using an app. This helps free up space and fix apps that don't work properly. Clearing the cache may also be the right solution for your Facebook relationships. To try this option, do the following:

  1. Open Settings Menu.

  2. Go to Applications or a similarly named sub setting.

Each Android device may have a slightly different menu depending on the phone manufacturer, but the basic idea remains the same.

Facebook Stories doesn't work on iPad

  1. Open App store.

If you already have an updated version of Facebook and are still having problems with the Facebook relationship, you can follow the same steps as for the iPhone. Try restarting the app, reinstalling it, updating iOS or restarting the iPad.

Facebook Stories doesn't work on PC

Most people probably wouldn't choose to transfer history from a computer, but it is useful. However, even here there are some problems. Fortunately, there are also ways to fix them.

One way is to clear the cache of the browser you use to access Facebook. When using a browser, many cached files can slow down the browser and cause problems. The exact method will vary from browser to browser. The basic steps are:

  1. Open Settings In your browser.

Facebook relationships don't show up in Messenger

Most people who use Facebook also use the Messenger app. Sometimes there are problems, such as Stories not being displayed in Messenger, but there are several ways to fix this.

If you see Relationships on Facebook, but not in Messenger, or your Relationship is not visible, you may have muted Relationships. To check this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the icon with your profile picture in the upper left corner.

Another thing you can do is clear the cache on an Android device or offload the app on an iOS device. Offloading is similar to clearing the cache. It doesn't delete your data or information and is faster than uninstalling the app. To unload the Messenger app, do the following:

  1. Open Settings Menu.

Frequently Asked Questions

Facebook relationships are great fun until they don't work properly. Here are more answers to questions about this feature.

How can I contact Facebook for additional assistance?

If you have tried all of the above methods and your Stories are still not cooperating, Facebook can help you. You need to use the so-called Assistance support option in Facebook settings. You can send a ticket (along with a screenshot) to the support team.

I can't see someone's story. What am I doing?

If you've noticed that there's a group or friend whose Story doesn't appear at the top of your feed, it's probably muted. You can unmute another user's History in the mobile app by tapping the option Settings and touching History Settings.

If you are using a web browser, tap the right arrow icon that appears next to the relationship (at the top of the feed), and then tap Settings. From here you will see Stories you've muted. Get Unmute to add user content back to your channel.

History is coming to an end

There are many reasons why the Facebook Story feature may not work. However, there are many ways to fix it on different devices. If none of the issues discussed are working for you, it's a good idea to contact technical support.
