I have an iPhone 11 and for some reason I can’t copy/paste text in Facebook, I have all the latest updates and have reinstalled Facebook a few times. I have always been able to copy text in my previous android phones but since switching to iPhone this function is no longer available. This is quite frustrating, any help greatly appreciated.
Um. Nope. I’ve never used the FB app…only browser and that is Safari on my XR. I can select text in other websites, but it’s NOT happening on Facebook. You might want to update the post….your post show’s today’s date, but the comments dates stem back four years! ???
