Facebook Glitch with Posting or Sharing

iOS and iPadOS

Hello to all, I have noticed, after updating the Facebook app to v100.0 on my iPhone that when creating a new post or trying to share a post, the process has changed. Before, when creating or sharing, everything would be on one page. You could tag a location, tag friends, add photos and videos, change the audience for your post. But since the recent update, now when you creat or share a post, all is the same except for selecting the audience. Now instead of having the "Post" button at the top right, you have a "Next" bgutton. When pressing this button, you're brought to a new page where you select your audience. The only problem I've encountered is that all the options that are available, are dimmed and unavailable.

There is a "More" button but when selecting this option, I'm brought to a similar page with all options being also dimmed and unavailable.

The only odd thing is that this seems to only happen on my iPhone. When doing the same on my iPad, the process seems the same as it always has been. I do not quite understand why Facebook needed to change this process as it always seemed to work perfectly fine before. I've sent them a message in the hopes that something may be done to correct this issue but until then, I'm left using my iPad to post and share. Thanks!

Phew! I am glad to hear that I am not the only one. For a while there, I thought I may be hallucinating. I guess there may not be any way of fixing this until Facebook decides to release an update to correct it?

I just got an update in my app store for Facebook 132.0. I'd try updating it as they may have fixed the issue. I can't speak for iphones, but my iPad app is working as expected. But, I'd try updating it to 132.0 and see if that works. I'm noj sure if you'll have it in your app store right away, but if not, you'll get it. Good luck and hope this helps!

I updated yesterday after seeing the update and no luck, the issue is still there. Like I had said, the issue seems to be only on my iPhone. If I try and post something on my iPad, it works fine as it has before.
