What to Do When Instagram Won't Share to Facebook

Facebook is the one of the biggest, if not the biggest, social networking sites in the world. They have created a mobile Facebook app that is specifically made for mobile devices which works wonderfully.

The only real issue is that when you are using the mobile app instead of the desktop version of the site, you are actually missing out on some of the functionality and features that Facebook actually has on the desktop version and not the mobile version.

Even if you try to access Facebook on your web browser on your Android, you will still be redirected to the mobile version of Facebook and still won’t be able to use all the features that the desktop version allows you to use.

Facebook says that they do this so they can fit your experience better to you and the device you are using. They also say that if you are using a mobile device you might not be using a high speed internet connection, therefore the experience you have on the desktop version wouldn’t be up to their standards, or possibly yours.
