Mobile Users: How to Access Facebook Freebies
If it seems like Facebook-based freebies favor those on computers over mobile users (smart phones, cell phones, tablet apps, etc.), that’s because the Facebook app and mobile site don’t play well with Facebook tabs. On Facebook’s mobile site, you can’t see tabs and that’s where companies usually offer their free stuff.
But did you know: you can access the full Facebook site on your mobile device?! You just have to know how!
Here’s how to access Facebook’s full site on your phone so that you can see tabs on Facebook pages, and get to their freebie offers!
Step by Step Instructions:
- Open this whole link in your mobile device’s web browser: http://facebook.com/home.php
- After entering the link in your phone’s WEB BROWSER, you’ll see the FULL Facebook site! It will look just like it does on your computer, only smaller. 🙂
- Now, enter in a page name in the top search box (e.g., “gimmiefreebies”)
- When page pops up, click to go to that page and you’ll see it in the Full Facebook site, complete with TABS to click!!
- Click tab and view just like you would on a computer. This is handy when companies offer freebies on their Facebook tabs!

IMPORTANT, please note:
- These instructions are explaining how to access Facebook’s Full site on a mobile device, so that you can access TABS on pages – which is often how companies offer freebies
- For these instructions to work, you must use a mobile device with access to the web
- Works with data plan, (e.g., 3G, 4G) and with WiFi connections
- Use your mobile device’s web browser, NOT the Facebook app

- This may not work with all offers. For example, if you have an Apple iPhone or iPad, offers that must be displayed in Flash will not work
