    I'm not sure if I had the same problem, but on my Surface Pro2 my Facebook app was only showing blank newsfeed when signing in no matter what I did. I eventually came across a suggestion on here where I had to go into general settings and create a Facebook Username on the Facebook website. Once I created a new Facebook Username everything started working again. This happened like 3 weeks ago for me and everything has worked since.

    Yes, I logged into the website to make a username. The Windows 8 app was the only one not working. My Facebook app on my iPhone and iPad worked fine.

    Thanks, I had this problem with my new SP3 and adding a user name to my account as described seems to have solved it. Pretty obscure detail that is not an intuitive fix. Thanks again.
