I've merged the 3 topics on this issue into one so it is more manageable.

The current workaround for this is to make the Waze-Facebook Connection in the Client App (on your phone/tablet). Go Menu -> Settings -> Social Networks -> Facebook. Once you are connected on the app, the dashboard will reflect that fact.

Thanks for the merge.

Actually, this is not the case, at least not for me. I'm definitely connected to fb in the app, but the Dashboard does not reflect this. I don't really care about the dashboard part because I can see it is actually connected. The website page isn't working properly and I really don't know why people care. There's nothing to "do" after it shows connected on the web. There's no additional functionality which is missing. The app side is the only part which matters.

Does your dashboard look like the image below after connecting? If so, Waze & Facebook at connected and the link is good to go.

I actually connected my Waze & Facebook using the app after this issue started and it seems fine.

Also, Alan, there was a time after version 3.5 (both platforms) came out that Waze asked us all to re-connect our Waze & Facebook accounts (if we wanted) because a change led to a disconnection for all users.

No, it does not look like that. It shows disconnected and clicking on the button, as others have stated, does nothing but spin for several seconds then reloads the page. The app is connected to fb just fine as I can see all my fb friends.

I have noticed this as well. I don't agree with the claims others are making that there is no functionality on the website by being connected to Facebook. For example, I can't load my friend list on the waze website. Facebook works just fine on the client which is key, but it would be nice to see this fixed if it is a simple Waze/Facebook API issue.

Thanks!

Agreed. There is something broken for many of us on the website related to facebook.

If I log in on the world server, I get the Facebook connect button. When attempting to log in, it seemingly does,refreshes the screen, and still shows I'm not logged in. Scoreboard/Friends tells me I should log in to see how I stack up.

If I log in on the www site, I do not get the button, but it immediately shows me as connected. The disconnect link does nothing, but no friends show up on the scoreboard, just a text entry box allowing me to post an invite to join 'waze' (not Waze) on my wall.

This functionality has never worked on the world server in the 5 months I've been active.
The client seems to be OK.

Same here, can't see friends list. Pushing the facebook connect button does nothing.
