Facebook Timeline Wall is Blank – No Posts Showing [Fix]

Facebook Home Page White Screen

My Facebook Timeline wall is blank and no posts are showing up!

This is a problem that a lot of Facebook Timeline users have been experiencing lately. It seems that Timeline is full of bugs.

Update (05/17/2012):

Thanks to a comment by one of my readers, we’ve been able to find a workaround to this issue.

If you’ve created “interest groups” and are experiencing a blank homepage, delete all of your interest groups and then refresh your profile (some users have reported that you only need to delete a few interest groups). It should now display correctly.

Interest groups are different from friends groups. To find them, find the very last section in the left sidebar of your homepage. See the image below:

Facebook Interest Groups

Obviously, if you’ve been heavily using interest lists, you may not want to delete them but it will solve the problem!

Fortunately, there are a few solutions that have been reported so solve the issue of no posts showing up on your Facebook Timeline profile and/or wall.

Solutions to having a blank Facebook Timeline wall:

1. Enable Secure Browsing in Facebook

This is the most common solution to the blank Facebook Timeline problem and is relatively easy to implement:

  1. Log in to Facebook.
  2. Access your “account settings” by clicking on the dropdown list next to the “Home” button.
  3. Facebook Account Settings

  4. Click on the “Security” tab of the settings screen, click “edit” in the “Secure Browsing” section and make sure the checkbox is checked.
  5. Facebook Timeline Blank Wall Fix

  6. If you do not see results right away, log out of your Facebook account and then back in.

2. Clear Your Browser Cache

This is a simple troubleshooting technique that can be used in many situations. If the first solution didn’t work for you, trying clear your browsers cookies and cache and then check and see if the problem is still occurring.

3. Do Not Use Internet Explorer

Many Internet Explorer users are reporting that the blank Facebook wall problem is resolved when switching to another web browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Internet Explorer has been one of the worst browsers for a few years now and, even if you’re not experiencing this problem, I would recommend moving away from it.

    Same exact issue as Laura described started this AM.

  2. George Junginger says:

    No luck with timeline showing recent posts. Strangely enough, I can see it on my iphone. It's not my browser's cache – friends cannot see my timeline on their computers. Maybe it has something to do with FB's focus on mobile? I did start a list today and comment on a techcrunch article.

  3. Bruno says:

    Same problem and no succes trying the above metioned. Obviously is not a problem of my explorer or my computer beacause my friends can't see my full profile also.

  4. Paginafansite Alfredo F says:

    Thank u.. for the facebook blank wall TIP!! worked very well!! im so happy!!

  5. 10dier says:

    Thanks a LOT to @Laura, @Anson, coz I had the exactly same problems mentioned above and asked Facebook (wouahaha.) a solution but of course had no answer. It's great to have such a website as Facebook, but with near 1 billion of users… We can see very quick that you have to find any solution by yourself in case of bugs or any malfunction…
    I had few Interests Lists that I have deleted. Now works fine.
    For now.
    : )

  6. Scott K says:

    I tried all of the above and still had the same issue. I tried different browsers, none of which worked, except Safari on my iPad. Even after this, on my computer it still did not show.
    I posted a comment to my timeline (as the box showed just under my cover photo) and pressed <enter> and the comment disappeared so my page was stil blank, until someone commented on it. As I watched, all my posts returned along with my recent status and the comments. Hope this helps for anyone still stuck.

  7. Kate says:

    I have the same problem. One question – should I delete all groups or all interests?

  8. Elisa says:

    I can see my profile on my Iphone but not on any other browser – Chrome, IE, Safari, Mozilla…

    I don't have any "Interests" listed so that's not my issue.


  9. Cat says:

    Tried this but no luck. Still can't view my timeline posts.

  10. plutosdad says:

    the only interests group I have is "Subscriptions" and i don't want to delete those and then have to go back and resubscribe (and bring subscriptions right back :) )

    My timeline is blank on Firefox as well as IE 8, compatibility on or off. https version.
    My wall also does not show posts I made from Windows Live (that auto-post to Facebook) though others can see it and comment on it.

    Yes I use windows live. :) Mainly due to xbox and I'm a C# developer.

    1. plutosdad says:

      some more info: using developer tools I can see there are links for the "timeline_recent_more_pager" that say "see more recent stories" that are not being displayed, you can see them in the html. But the stories themselves are not buried in html. they are not there at all. so …. it must be on their side.

      Also if I hit the months I can see items from each month. But when I hit "Now" is when it goes back to being blank.

  11. Ah well, guess this problem will never be fixed . . . says:

    * Did all of the above only to find that nothin' is' working. We're talkin' a blank page here. The top portion shows but that's all she wrote, pal. Had a friend visit and it showed up for her. It's nothing on that end. Yep, tried all avenues to no avail. Me facepage is still blank as a cow's brain. Empty as a wren's tit.

    Ok then, please get back with me if ye figure this out. I'd like to fix this mess. Oh, and Facebook . . . you do truly, deeply SUCK!!!

  13. Brigitte le Roux says:

    I hope someone can help me. My profile is completely blank on both my computer and my iPhone, so I know its not a browser issue. All I can see is the blue Facebook taskbar at the top, but its blank the rest of the way. I can't see anything down the side or access my account settings, so can't even try the above solutions…

    On my computer is says "Oops, we've encountered a problem and are working on fixing"

    On my iPhone it just says 'Network Error'.

    I have no issues accessing any other websites or applications.

    Please help xx Thank you!

  24. EPAIN says:

    When I look at any pictures via my homepage, the area to the right where comments and tags normally appear (and also where you can comment) is blank. However, if I go to another person's page, I can see comments and tags and am able to make comments to the right of their pictures. Anyone else heard of this problem?
