To solve the problem first, we should know what is causing the issue in your device. So what’s the wait? Let’s get started.
The issues that can cause no images on the most popular social media are given below:
- DNS not working: Yes if your DNS server is not running as it usually does, then it can cause several issues such failures in loading images for some specific sites such as Facebook and others. DNS does a great job in troubleshooting hostnames of different platforms and requests.
- Poor internet connection: Check whether your internet speed is optimized or not. You can play YouTube to check whether the internet is capable of streaming videos or not. If you see that YouTube videos are not playing, then that means you need a better connection.
- Network cache: Network cache does an essential job in playing all applications that require the internet to work. If there is an error in the network cache, then it may affect Facebook images too.
- Hosts file: These files are meant to handle the hosts on your device locally. If the host file is missing proper entries for your Facebook, then it may block images to load.
Now you know the basic causes of the “Facebook images not loading” error. Now you can troubleshoot this error with ease.
Solution 1: Check Your Internet Connection
It should be the first choice to solve the images not loading problem on Facebook. Here ‘s how to check it:
- Connect other devices with the same internet connection and then open Facebook in the other device to check if the images are loading. If images don’t appear on the other device too, then the problem is your internet.
- Try to check the internet speed with a third party application or default feature if possible. If the speed seems to be very slow, then it can cause no images on Facebook.
- Try to play YouTube videos; if videos are playing just fine, then that means the problem is not your internet. Some settings are preventing images from loading on your device.
That is how to check internet status. If your Wi-Fi is not working correctly, then restart your router to fix the connection issue.
Solution 2: Checking the Browser Settings
If you are using Facebook on your browser, then there is a possibility that a setting is preventing images. Here’s how to check and fix it:
