  1. A few weeks ago, I have 2 other FB accounts (+ this - altogether is 3 accounts) using my notebook (MSWindow 10) computer (not install in my Andriod Cellphone). However, suddenly disappear, so does the Account Switcher icon. Could you advise me how can I add on my 2 other FB accounts into my main account ? Thanks!
