    I am having the same problem. I open my facebook app after 2 seconds it crashes. Even in the safari I am having this problem. I tried to download the app again but it still doesn't work. What do I do?

      Try restarting your phone.In Safari browser,clear all browser history,cache,cookies and try accessing Facebook.

          You can try login with your username instead of email id.This might solve your problem in both scenarios.

          I had the same problem awhile ago. I tried restarting my iphone but it didn't work even if my internet connection is stable & good. I tried uninstalling & re installing fb and it worked!!! I can useit now.

      first of all, we need more information to be able to help you. How or why does Facebook not open? Did you forget your password? Or did you get blocked? Is there an error message? What does it say?

      Secondly, this sounds like an entirely different question than the one above. Thus I recommend that you ask a new question via the respective button in the top left on MakeUseOf Answers.

        I am having the same problem. When I click on the Facebook icon it acts like it is going to start opening then it quits and goes back to the icon.

    If you are using the Facebook app from the app store I would recommend first restarting your iPhone by holding down the power button and home button until the apple logo comes up. If this does not work than I would try uninstalling the app from phone completely. Then I would go to app store and download it again to start fresh.
