Android: View Full Version Of Facebook

Today, I was asked a question about using the Facebook For Android app to update a Facebook brand page for which you are an admin. You can’t access many of the features on Facebook with the Android app. When you visit Facebook in a web browser, it will show you the mobile version of the site. However, there are some steps you can take to access the full version of the web site on any mobile device.

1. Open the Browser.

2. Visit http://m.facebook.com

3. Tap the Facebook mobile more box in the upper-left corner of the screen, then scroll down.

4. Click the Desktop Site link at the bottom of the page.

You’ll then be able to view the full, non-mobile Facebook site and have access to all of the features you would have on your desktop computer right from your Droid.

    I can view full desktop version on my HTC Incredible but am unable to reply to comments on any page or profile. I can “post” statuses and pics at the top of pages and profiles, just not able to reply or comment. Does anyone have the answer?
    Thank you in advance

    I had the same issues with FB redirecting to the app/mobile site.
    Let it redirect u to the app site, in the top left theres 3 little horizontal lines click, scroll to the bottom and click on desktop site, save in bookmarks no more head aches, yay!

    The easiest method to acces full version of facebook in your android phone is changing user agent in your browser. that’s all ;]

    “An Open Letter to FACEBOOK”! ;-O
    Facebook’s Full site access as indicated above, is no longer available for “approximately” the past week …after June 1, 2011 on my Verizon Moto Droid v.2.2.2.
    This Full site access method was also how I’d be able to acquire the infamous “Facebook password reset option!” Now without full site option, no SMS option, good luck getting Facebook password to go through! UGH!
    Mobile users are missing out on several items within the Full Facebook site, and Facebook, who do you believe has increased your popularity? Mobile Phones, so watch it! Or it’s Bye, Bye!
    ★ “KNOCK IT OFF FACEBOOK” because you’re no longer very much fun for access only by MOBILE phones!
