    Hi all. I keep getting the above message/notification. I don't know what upload it is referring to, and when I 'Tap for options' all I get is a screen saying I don't have any pending stories.
    Top left there's a <left arrow> to 'Your posts' which just takes me to my phone's home screen, and top right a camera icon which takes me to the photo gallery. If I cancel out of this the message has gone, but it keeps returning.
    How do I get rid of this annoying message permanently?!
    TIA

    I am getting the SAME message! It started yesterday, so maybe it's residual bug from the crash?

    Well, I hope the OP hasn't been suffering with the same bug for the last 20 months. :eek: That would really suck. :(

    Anyway, between the FB and IG outage, and a sporatic Charter outage, its worth keeping an eye on this.

    Since today's morning I am also getting this issue. Is there any solution is available?

    Ask Facebook. But I guess it's something that's broken, along with all their other broken things

    I once did experient this, but I have a strange way how to unbind this, first off, look on what your size of photos you have? What type of images are you running and want to upload on fb? Do you have a cleaner for your tablet, or phone? Run that and you should be good to go when uploading photos on fb..

    Answer: I too had this problem; I did not like seeing that there was no solution yet. THIS is what worked for me; I am not saying it is THE solution, it is just one way to get around the annoying (and repetitive!) message: “Facebook upload failed - Tap for options” yet there were no options! I uninstalled Facebook from my phone; went back to Play Store & Reinstalled it. Problem gone.


    Note: there is a Technipage listing titled: “Facebook for Android: Clear Stuck Uploads – Technipages” which eventually said to, in Android settings to “CLEAR DATA”. Not being a super-tech, I did not like the ominous warning which came with that; I did not want my Facebook data cleared; contacts cleared, etc.

    SO, I realized that my laptop version of FB would survive the removal from my phone. Which is what led me to Uninstall from the phone, and Reinstall. It Worked!
