When I head to Online Accounts and try to add Facebook, it asks me to enter username and password, then save the device by giving it a name, but then the blue circle spins around for a second or two then I get a blank page and Facebook isn't being added.

It was working before I removed it, so I'm not sure what's happening.

Anyone got an idea of what I can do?

  1. You need to go to privacy settings on your facebook account, at Ads, Apps and Websites ->Edit Settings->Apps you Use->Edit Settings and Remove Ubuntu
  2. go to System Settings and add again the facebook Online Account

and it will work


in facebook go to App Center-->My Apps and remove Ubuntu. now add your facebook online account.. it will work :) :)
