In other news friends, after Instagram yet another social media is facing troubles. The list of people who liked your posts is unavailable on Facebook. “No Data Available” instead is on display.

According to some users, when they try to open up the likes to see all the people who have liked their posts, Facebook gives an error saying “No Data Available”. I have personally tried and I can verify the issue persists on my side too.

This is how your screen might look if you go right now and try to see the list of likes on any posts on Facebook.

Why Does Facebook Say No Data Available?

Basically, when you click on likes or comments, to see list of people, you are shown an error that reads “No Data Available”. This error is seen on all kinds of Facebook posts, whether they are in a group, on a page, on your friend’s posts or your own posts.

Upon investigating further, I have gathered that mostly users from California & Texas for now are getting the “No Data Available” error on Facebook. So it is possible that the servers catering to requests from those regions might be facing a down time.

It is completely normal if you’re facing this error from some other part of the world too. May be the issue is in its process of spreading. Maybe more and more people will report the Facebook no data available error in coming hours.

There has been no official announcement from Facebook regarding this error. So it is only fair to assume that the Facebook servers are suffering from a downtime. A technical glitch or bug could also be responsible for the error.
