    Facebook on People??


    Hi everyone this is my first post here and I'm not sure if this is the right section to post in but nevermind.

    When I try to connect to Facebook via the People app it gives me an error message saying "we are unable to get updates from Facebook. You may be able to fix this by reconnecting" (obviously I have tried reconnecting a few times with no luck). Has anyone here encountered the same problem and does anyone know how to resolve it?

    Thanks in advance

    Okay I just found a thread that has a solution. If anyone else has this problem simply uninstall people and the other 3 apps with it (right click on the tile) then go to Store> right click at the top> your apps> then install the 4 you uninstalled and you should be good to go!

    Okay rather than starting a new thread about this I thought I would add it to this one. Why does my notifications not pop up in the corner even though my Facebook is connected to the people app? I thought that was the whole idea?

    From what I've known (if) the Facebook account is using hotmail/windowslive mail, and the rest apps connecting are using the same email account you will get an annoying pop up in the right upper corner frequently. It happens to me even in the middle of my presentation activities, quite embarrassing. Now before any presentation I have to disconnect the internet or log out from those apps, or disable notifications.
