  • When I receive a notification I have not been able to access the link. It will not connect after multiple tries.

    • This happens when you are using a slow network to access Facebook. You should reload/refresh the page when you are sure there’s network. Alternatively, if you are using a Facebook mobile App, consider closing and restarting.

      Preferably, download Facebook Lite. It is more faster on slow network.
