Can You Use Facebook Mobile on a Computer?

Save

Like many other popular websites, Facebook offers a mobile version for smartphone users. This mobile version is stripped-down compared to the regular version, which reduces the amount of data consumed to transfer the page and reduces load times. While this version of Facebook is intended for mobile users, you can access it from your computer Web browser.

Accessing Facebook Mobile

  • You can access Facebook Mobile from any computer Web browser, whether you're running Windows or Mac. Just launch your preferred Web browser and instead of typing "facebook.com" in the address bar, type "m.facebook.com." This takes you to the mobile version of Facebook.

Downsides to Using Facebook Mobile

  • There are a couple of downsides to using the Facebook Mobile website instead of the standard Facebook site. While the most basic functions of Facebook such as chatting, messaging and posting statuses and photos are preserved, Facebook Mobile sheds all apps and games. While the games may be a minimal loss for some, the loss of useful apps can be problematic. The interface is restricted to a single column in the center of the page because it is optimized for phone screens.
