Hitting Windows Phone Facebook errors? A fix is in the works

Advertisement

Our smartphones are fantastic little gadgets when they’re answering our questions, helping us with directions, or just keeping us connected with the world, but there’s little more frustrating than when they just stop working, for no apparent rhyme nor reason. If you’re a Windows Phone 8 user, you might have noticed your handset spitting out error messages at you today, complaining about connection problems with Facebook. This has been going on for hours now, and if you find yourself in this boat, you’ll be glad to know both that you’re not alone, and that a fix is currently being developed.

Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore took to Twitter a couple hours back to both acknowledge that Microsoft was aware of the errors users have been running up against, and to announce that work is undergoing on a fix. We’re not sure if the “FB team” Belfiore mentions developing this fix is Microsoft’s internal group, or if this issue might be one only the boys at Facebook proper can fix (similar to the case with that Twitter data-consumption bug in the People hub last month), but all you really need to keep focused on is that help is forthcoming.

Have any Pocketnow readers been struggling with this headache? You’ll have been getting an error code of 83CF1104 if this is same problem affecting your phone.
