How to Fix it When Facebook Dating is not Showing Up

Facebook Dating is a new additional feature on your Facebook mobile application. However, this new feature is just like any other dating application out there, and it can be used to meet new people looking to date and get you into a relationship. This article explains how to fix it when Facebook Dating is not showing up.

How to Fix Facebook Dating Not Showing Up

After a while of using the new dating feature on your Facebook app, you note the feature is no longer showing up. Follow the below methods to fix the problem:

Method 1: Check Internet Connection

If you’re experiencing the not showing up issue on your Facebook Dating, we believe a sluggish network or bad one can cause the problem. So, before trying other methods before, make sure you fix your network problem because, without a standard or reliable network, you can’t get the problem fixed.

If you are using a Wi-Fi connection, try to connect another device to the network and see if the Internet is working. Then, try to launch another network-required application to check if the problem is on the Facebook end.

However, suppose you’re using your mobile device’s cellular data. In that case, you can check on your network and see if there are issues concerning their connectivity or switch to a reliable WiFi for testing. You can do that by turning on your WiFi to connect to a strong network and see if the problem is fixed.

Method 2: Update Facebook App

Facebook is a mobile application that releases updates regularly for a better user experience. So, we believe that if you’re using an outdated version, that may be the cause of the problem. But before diving into the update things, please make sure you are on a reliable cellular network or a strong WiFi network.

Now, go to the Play Store if you’re an Android user, locate the search bar at the top of the screen, then type in Facebook. Once the Facebook application indicates an update, just hit the “Update” button and allow the application to update and install the latest version on your device.

However, for iOS users, you can use your App Store to update the app. Kindly open your App Store and locate the search bar, type in Facebook, see if there is a newly released update of the application, hit the “Update” button, and then wait for the application to be fully installed on your device.

Once you’ve confirmed the update on iOS and Android, you can now launch the application and check if the Dating feature is there. This is one of the most reliable ways to fix the problem. However, if you’re still experiencing the same issue, jump to the next method.

Method 3: Enable Facebook App Notifications

There are so many applications that use the notification feature, and you might have turned the notifications off general via your Settings. Please ensure your Facebook is exempted from the list of the turned-off ones, or you can turn ON Facebook App notifications to use Facebook Dating service.

Method 4: Check if Facebook is not down

Suppose you’ve been using this dating feature on your app before. In that case, you notice it’s no longer there anymore, and you’ve confirmed it’s not due to a bad Internet connection, outdated version, or app notification. The only thing we can think about now is downtime. We all know that almost all mobile applications of today experience downtime, and when experiencing downtime, there are so many things users can come across.

However, we strongly recommend you check if another user is experiencing the issue. This can be confirmed by asking your friends or using another device to check if the device is facing the same use. Unfortunately, once you notice that’s the cause of the problem, then there’s nothing you and I can do about it until the problem is fixed on the Facebook end.

Method 5: Clear Cache on your Phone

The mobile device is known to store data for each application you’re using for the app to run faster. Anyway, those stored data can get corrupted anytime, which might be why your Dating feature is not showing up anymore. This can be fixed by clearing the cache via Settings.

Method 6: Uninstall and Reinstall Facebook App

Sometimes, a simple uninstalling and reinstalling of the application in question can eliminate any error or glitch causing the problem. So, I will advise you to find a way to get rid of the application and make your way into the App Store or Play Store to reinstall the application. Then, launch the app and see if the problem persists once the app has been perfectly installed.

Method 7: Contact Facebook Help Center

This is the last method to tell you exactly what’s causing the problem. However, we believe the issue should be fixed if you’ve followed all the above steps accordingly. If everything else fails, you can send a direct message to Facebook’s Technical support team via their Facebook webpage. You can do this using your android or iOS device or computer. Tap the Facebook Help Center located on the website.
