facebook pictures not showing on newsfeed

Facebook pictures not showing on Newsfeed is a common issue faced by users. Many times, users are not able to see Facebook pictures on their Newsfeed.

There may be many reasons for which your Facebook pictures not showing on the newsfeed. Before going for a solution, go through the following checks:

In case you are having an issue in connecting to the Facebook API, then try to update the plugin to the latest version. Try to use the “Log in and get my Access Token” button to get a new Access Token. The latest Facebook platform changes require updates to the plugin code that are reflected in the latest versions.

Check if you’re trying to display posts from a personal profile

In order to check whether you’re trying to display posts from a personal profile in place of a page or group, simply view your page and check whether you have ‘Friends’, ‘Likes’ or ‘Members’. Generally, profiles have ‘Friends’, pages have ‘Likes’ and groups have ‘Members’. If you find ‘Friends’ in profiles, then it’s not a page or a group, it is a personal profile.

Facebook has a privacy policy using which you cannot use the plugin to display all of your posts from a personal profile. You can use the plugin only from a public page or a group account because posts that are from a personal profile, are protected for privacy concern.

If your profile is representing a business, organization, product, public figure or something else other than yourself, then you need to convert your profile to a page as per Facebook’s policy.

After converting to a page, the plugin will retrieve and display all of your posts.

Check if the Facebook page feed you are trying to display has restrictions on it

Another reason for your problem is that the feed that you’re trying to display has to be a publicly accessible page. In case your page has any restrictions on it, it simply means that users have to sign in to Facebook to view your page. It is not desirable for most posts as it isn’t accessible by people not having a Facebook account. Your pictures or page will not be crawled and indexed by search engines.

To check whether your page is set to public or not, sign out of your Facebook account and then try to visit your page. If you see that Facebook is forcing you to sign in to view your page then surely it has a restriction on it.

The good thing is that you can easily remove any restrictions by logging into your Facebook account and changing the settings for your page. Remove any Country Restrictions and Age restrictions. After removing this, the Custom Facebook Feed plugin will be able to access and display your posts.

You can also display posts from a page that has restrictions on it if you are using a “Page” Access Token that has been obtained from that specific Facebook page. For this, you must be an admin of the Facebook page that you want to display. Now use the button in plugin labeled “Log in and get my Access Token” to get a token for that Facebook Page.

Check that you have entered a correct Page

Make sure that you’re using the correct Facebook ID.

The posts that are 2-3 years old, they may not show up in the Facebook API and hence may not get display by the plugin.
