Cant follow friend

Level 2

I can't follow my friend because The follow button won't show up and I can't find anywhere in settings to enable or disable the ability to stop anyone from following. Please can anyone help me figure this out.

Hey there, @zombie0army!


We see you're having some troubles with the app and the follow button disappearing. We can't let something like this happen and interrupt your VR time. We have a couple steps we can take to help get this resolved. When you're ready, attempt the following:


  • Make sure our headset is up to date
  • Make sure you app is on the latest update
  • Force close and restart the app
  • Sign out and then back into the app
  • Uninstall and reinstall the app


As well, if you try this and that button disappears again, we ask that you please submit a bug report using the steps here. This will be the best way to have our engineers take notice of this issue!

Did u ever get this figured out I'm having the same issue with my niece

Tried all of this and still no follow button on my profile or my friends profile!!! I can add the world but not my friend and they can’t add me. 

Hiya @Igot6siblings! We totally understand how important it is to be able to follow your friends, and we'd love to help! To start, we have a couple questions that may help us determine what could be causing this issue:


  • Have you migrated your account into a Meta account?
  • Do you have parental supervision enabled on your headset?
  • Is your headset up-to-date?
  • Have you or your friends recently changed your profiles from Public to Private? (or vice-versa)
  • Are you able to send them an Invite to Party?
  • Can you or your friends see each others Activity or Active Status?
  • Have you checked your blocked profiles?

We hope to hear from you soon!

Hi again, we're just dropping on over to see if you still need assistance with your issue. If so, please don't hesitate to let us know. Thank you!
