I am trying to get the connection set up with facebook and have allowed lightroom to publish there.
Back in lightroom the publishing manager is then telling me it is authorizing and that is were it stays and hangs fore ever.
In my face book app account it tells me that lightroom still requires access to my basic info and still requires access to my photos, but since in lightroom the publishing manager is still trying to authorize my facebook nothing happens. I can't even cancel out of it as lightroom is frozen and that happens every time and I need to forcequit out of lightroom.
Anybody with any solution please.

Many thanks

Filip, can you go to File > New Catalog and start a test catalog somewhere (desktop would do).

Try setting up the Facebook Publish Service in the temp catalog - does it work? That'll help determine whether it's a computer or catalog based issue.

You'll only use the temporary catalog for this test, and then you'll go back to File > Open Recent to open your normal catalog again.

Also, be sure you're using Lightroom 3.4.1. Several Facebook bugs were fixed in that update. In Lightroom, choose Help > Check For Updates.
