Facebook frustrations

iOS and iPadOS

I use the Facebook app to read through my newsfeed. Recently, some of the posts from a couple of my friends are showing up as blank entries when I swipe to them. Also, I can't access the action rotor on these entries. If I flick up or down, I just hear the bong sound.

I believe this might have started with iOS 14.5, but it might have been happening before that. I've now upgraded to iOS 14.6 and it's still happening. I'm using the latest version of the Facebook app on my iPhone 8.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix it?

I've discovered that this problem of blank entries in my Facebook newsfeed only occurs with friends that I've marked as Favorites. Once I removed the friend from Favorites, they started showing up normally in my newsfeed. I'd still like to know why a favorited friend is displayed as a blank entry, but since I can sort the newsfeed by recent posts, I don't really need my friends to be favorited in order to prioritize their posts.
