Facebook is a business. They sell ad space. They do not want the stuff blocked they are making money from.
Sites like facebook come and go. Right now they are really strong, but will die down in the next 5-10 years. That may seem like a long time, but int he whole scheme of things it is not.

I see none of these crashes on my computer.
Most likely it is the IPad software or something faulty in your IPad like some bad memory.
I would search for the problem you are having and see if a lot of others are having the same issue.
If not, then it would suggest it is your IPad itself.
If many others are having the same issue, then it is a software issue.
i did a brief search, i didnt really see anything that seemed to match .. but, now i see this:
Forbes / FB messenger crashing .. https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnkoetsi ... 696ceb7a99
in this, there is a mention of a recent update (September) .. and, my problems began, i believe, after this update.
they talk about “the app.”
this makes me wonder if i uninstall the app, then reinstall, that might do it?
not that i’m proficient in that process. i might try it, or, i might take it to a store.
when i receive alerts about updates, i now leave days/weeks before i install the update, to try to give them time to work out system problems. i do not rush to update! plus, i’m not happy with all the results of the updates. they add/remove features, some are good, some i miss.
for now, i may accept it is a software problem.
it seems peculiar, what passes, what does not.
example, The Blaze has been a consistent problem. not blocked from FB, but definitely restricted from Messenger. on my ipad. i have not tried the laptop.
