i have done all 3 solutions to no avail. Everything else in Facebook works on my iPad except newsfeed. It either reads no stories or network error, but no uploads.

I had the same problem. The problem is caused by the http-proxy I had installed. Remove the proxy settings and FB wil work again.

but if you have an android phone and you are willing to set vpn then go to setting > more wireless > vpn and for Ipad vpn setting you might be also go with same if facebook is not working in your region. Also chose Ipad vpn according to vpnranks

I have tried everything that people has suggested and I still get Network Error. This has been going on for 3 weeks now. Open to any suggestions.

Me too. I’ve reported this problem to Facebook since November 8th, it’s almost December 1st and Network Error still pops up. This is absolutely ridiculous!
