Why Can't I Comment On A Facebook Page

Reasons No-1: Poor Internet Connection

Due to the unreliable internet connectivity, you may face the issue. If you confront network issues, you won’t be able to make any post, and comment as well. Sometimes, you will see that you are connected to the internet, but still face the issue. Remember that, to face the issue, your internet doesn’t not have to be completely disconnected. You’ll get it if you have poor internet connection too.

Reason No-2: Webpage Issue

Let us be clear about the Webpage issue. Webpage problems include things like browser cache being incompatible or faulty which is one of the general causes of comment issues that make you unable to comment on a Facebook page. Besides that, there are a couple of restrictions and settings that can prevent you from commenting on a Facebook page. In that case, by detecting the problem, you’ll be able to get a simple solution.

It is another common cause of comment issues. When you comment on a post that goes against community guidelines, you’ll get punishment from Facebook which is known as Facebook Jail. If you get the punishment, you will not be able to comment on a Facebook page for a certain period of time.

If you get the Facebook Jail, you will get a notification where they will say “You may have used Facebook in a way that our systems consider unusual. You can post again in ___ hours”. To know more about the Facebook Jail, you can check out the link.
