This Photo Couldn’t Be Uploaded To Your Story:

This can happen if the photo file is too large or if the format is not supported. It’s important to check the size and format requirements before uploading.

This means you should make sure that the photo file is within the specified size limit and in a supported format such as JPEG or PNG. You can easily resize the photo using various photo editing tools or convert it to a different format if needed.

If you notice that the file size and format are correct, but the upload still fails, there might be an issue with your internet connection. Ensure that you have a stable and reliable internet connection before attempting to upload the photo again.

Why I Can’t Upload Story On Facebook:

There are the below reasons why your Facebook stories get stuck:

1. This Takes time to Process (Wait for a while)

Sometimes Facebook stories take time to process, due to several reasons. Sometimes the internet or WiFi connection on your part is weak, which causes the story to take longer to be processed before being uploaded.

Even, if you feel your internet connection is fine, there is still a chance that the story will take longer to process due to internal facts on the part of the application. Therefore the only solution you can find when your video takes too long to process is, to wait for a while.

It may take longer, but eventually, your story will be uploaded as soon as the video is processed. Also, try not to leave the app as the story might not be uploaded in that case.

2. Facebook maybe Down

One of the most significant reasons your Facebook story is not being uploaded is that there might be an internal problem. Facebook being down means that the Facebook server is down.

This happens when a particular server is seeing a lot of traffic at a current time; that is, too many people using the app, causing the app to process commands or even continue to function as it would normally. A server problem is not very common but causes the whole app to falter; this means that no part of the app functions properly. 

3. Facebook App Has a Bug

Another reason your Facebook story is not being uploaded is that there might be a bug in a particular part of the app. A bug is a programming error in the app that disrupts a particular part of it, deterring it from functioning properly.

In this case, the bug greatly slows the time it takes to upload a story; it may also not allow you to upload a story. Bugs are usually fixed when new versions of the app are released. Therefore you might have to wait for updates if it is a problem caused by a bug.
