How to View Full Desktop Version of Facebook Site on Android and iPhone.


Facebook is no exception to this general trend. Though their mobile app on iOS and Android theoretically features most of the same capabilities as the desktop version of Facebook, many prefer to access Facebook through the browser on their smartphone to save room or resources on their phone’s internal storage, or just to avoid the sometimes annoying design of the Facebook mobile app. It’s no secret that the Facebook app takes up a lot of room, battery, and memory on your phone, and the mobile site can be a faster or easier way to access your social feed on the go.

Most of the websites display a mobile version for users who are browsing the site from their mobile phones. So whenever you try to access Facebook through your mobile phone, it automatically redirects you to its mobile version.

This is done to provide a better user interface on a smaller screen and to reduce bandwidth as most of the people are not using a high-speed Internet connection on their mobile phone.
