View behavior flow of facebook referalls

Im trying to view a behavior flow chart of my facebook referalls so I can see where facebook referalls are going on my website.

 

When I go to the behavior flow section on google analytics, I add a segment.

 

 I select custom --> traffic -->then type in facebook

When I go to click on it, it says "This segment contains constraints that cannot be applied to this report."

 

Anyone know how I can fix this?

I figured out how to do it!

 

Instead of using "Traffic sources" in the main area on the left, go to Advanced -> Conditions in that same area.Then add a filter from Acquisition->Source. This worked for me to create a segment that didn't cause bugs("Illegal state occurred") or "This segment cannot be used b/c of constraint" issues.

If you change it to filter sessions instead of filter users it works.
