When you open Facebook with the mobile web browser, Facebook will automatically redirect you to the mobile version of the website. Few people can access high-speed Internet, and for this reason, Facebook has created a mobile-optimized website. This mobile version consumes far less data than the desktop site. Also, the desktop site is designed for a larger screen. You will have to use the device in landscape mode to have a manageable experience. But, it will be a bit inconvenient. However, if you still want to access the desktop version of Facebook or any other site from your phone or tablet, you can do so following this tutorial.
