The Facebook mobile version is made for android devices and it works pretty well. But there are some features of Facebook which cannot be accessed while using a mobile version of the website. Facebook doesn’t allow its users to use the desktop version of the website for two reasons. First one is because Facebook mobile version is optimized for mobile devices and it works just great and the second is because most of the people do not have high-speed internet connection on their mobile which is needed for the smooth functioning of the Facebook desktop version. But there are occasions when we want to access the desktop version of the website as the mobile version lacks some important features.
So here is what you can do to access the Facebook desktop version on your Android device.
