    On screen keyboard problem

    Hey everyone,

    I had an HP Envy which I promptly returned because of how unresponsive it was and huge number of problems I had with it. Instead I got a Samsung ATIV 500T and it has been much better with one exception. When using it as a tablet on Facebook for example, when I touch a text input area the keyboard would pop up for a second and disappear. It would do this 3-4 times until finally it would stay up. This occurred on the HP as well. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    how are you accessing Facebook? is it through a desktop browser?

    have you tried facebook through any of the Windows Store apps? if the People app is insufficient, there are other options like Social NV which are great with touch and provide full Facebook access.

    Facebook Now is pretty good now if you don't like Social NV. It's also more traditionally formatted than a Modern style Social NV.
