Hey dudes!

This problem is driving me to drink... My wife and I share a pc and i can upload photos to facebook and she can't... We go through the same motions but after all is said and done she has a blank album and i don't... She get's a blank sqaure for an album cover that says ther are x amount of pictures but they are all blank... You can view them when you go to edit but that is it. We have tried uploading the same pic and it works on my account but not hers.. Any ideas?

    Have you tried uploading from a different computer?

    We have and same thing... Exact same steps: works for me and not her... Have tried changing her settings for the photos application and they are identical to mine.

    You might want to report the issue to facebook... do the photos *ever* show up? If you log out of her account and log back into hers can you see them?

    Often times very large sites like Facebook will have very complicated database setups to distribute load between their servers. It's not rare for a certain user to be directed toward a particular database server and some other user to be directed at some other server, based on any number of criteria.

    This could cause data discrepancies if they did something wrong and could lead to data being missing entirely, such as your photos. I could see this being somewhat likely since you have unique browser sessions but identical IP addresses.

    It's also not rare for data to be posted to a database correctly but take time to show up (on the order of seconds, even minutes on a busy day) because the DB server that data is posted to is different from the one that is being read from, and the copy may have not been written yet. This usually manifests itself on Facebook by the mysterious blank square for images, or status updates being in a particular order at one point, and then different after a page refresh.

    I had a similar problem. It fixed itself in a few days.
