Feed Limitations

Some old status updates may not be retrieved due to a bug with the Facebook API. We have filed a bug report with Facebook and are awaiting a fix. This may to not affect every user.

Known Issues


Broken Images

If your are seeing 'X' images for images which aren't loading, this could be due to three reasons.

1. Connection Issues

Facebook images are not stored on your device and whilst some maybe cached (stored temporarily), other older images will be loaded directly from Facebook. If you are experiencing connection issues or your device is unable to communicate with Facebook, then these images won't display until a connection is restored.

2. Unauthorised Access

Momento connects to Facebook using a 'token' which provides secure access to your Facebook data, including images. This token can expire if Momento is not launched and the feed refreshed for periods longer than 30 days. In addition, the token can be revoked should you de-authorise Momento from accessing your Facebook account or carry out changes to certain security settings related to your account on Facebook.

To force refresh the token you will need to disconnect and reconnect the feed in Facebook. If this problem persists you will need to delete the Facebook feed from Momento, and re-add it fresh.

3. Delete Images

Images from feeds are not stored on your device. If you delete images from Facebook then Momento will no longer be able to retrieve them.
