Lemon8 not working as it should? As the newest content sharing platform from China, Lemon8 is ByteDance’s answer to Instagram. But what to do if Lemon8 is not working properly?
Lemon8, the latest social media platform from TikTok’s parent company ByteDance, aims to be a combination of Instagram and Pinterest, with a variety of photo-focused content for every aesthetic taste.
Most of the problems that can occur when Lemon8 is not working are probably related to connection problems. However, if you’re also noticing issues like your latest carousel post not getting views, read on to find the best solution.
If Lemon8 isn’t working, here’s what you should check to get it up and running again as soon as possible.
Why isn’t Lemon8 working?
Whether you access Lemon8 via a web browser, mobile phone or tablet, an internet connection is required to function properly. Any app that connects to the internet can have problems if your device is in airplane mode or your WiFi or data connection isn’t working. Verifying that your connection is stable is a good first step in determining whether the issue is specific to Lemon8 not working, or the internet in general.
Restart your device
Closing and restarting the app should be your next step if you are using a tablet or mobile device. If that doesn’t fix the problem, try restarting your device, especially if it’s been a while.
To restart most Android and iOS devices:
- Hold down the button power button on your device.
- Tap the reboot Click the on-screen button when it appears.
- Confirm and wait for your device to restart.
- Open Lemon8 and confirm that it works.
Clear Lemon8 cache
If restarting doesn’t fix the problem, your next step should be to clear the app’s cache. Just as cleaning your desk is a great way to clear your head so you can work more efficiently, clearing an app’s cache will delete old files downloaded during use to save time and improve app performance improve. It can also be a great way to fix many issues that are causing it not to work properly.
To clear an app’s cache:
- Tap and hold Ideas app icon.
- Choose app and find Lemon8.
- Choose storage And clear cache.
- Start anew Open the app and sign in again.
Please note that you must do this Log back into Lemon8 after clearing your cache if you were previously logged in.
If you’ve tried all of the above and the Lemon8 app still doesn’t work, the next thing you should do is uninstall and reinstall the app. Occasionally, an app’s files can become corrupted over time or during an update, so a fresh install will fix most issues with an app that aren’t related to connectivity.
To reinstall Lemon8:
- open that app store or Load game and search Lemon8.
- Choose Lemon8 And Uninstall among the available options.
- Confirm and then click To install to reinstall it.
- Sign in again and confirm that Lemon8 functions.
If that doesn’t work, you may have to wait for an update of the app. Sometimes updates to an app can cause problems on certain devices until the developers release a fix – especially on older devices that are no longer supported.
Why can no one see my post but me?
The most common non-connection issue when Lemon8 isn’t working is that your posts only appear to be visible to you – even if you’ve set them to be visible to the public.
While some users have reported that deleting the post and re-creating it might resolve the issue, the likely cause is Lemon8’s content moderation system.
Sometimes when you create a post, it is queued to be moderated by Lemon8’s system (or team) before being published – but Lemon8 could spell this concept out more intuitively and clearly. Put it down to the fact that the western version of the app is extremely new, or that it’s a bug in the system that needs to be fixed later.
It seems random which posts are affected as a post often becomes public immediately. As with many content moderation policies, the type of post matters.
