Have you ever wished you could block all the distracting junk from the Facebook window so you could concentrate entirely on your Newsfeed?
Facebook’s user interface seems to get “busier” all the time with tons of other “features” competing with the posts in our Newsfeeds for our attention.
Well, if you use Facebook in a web browser on a laptop or desktop computer there’s a very simple way to block out virtually all the junk so you can concentrate entirely on your Newsfeed…
All you have to do is load the mobile version of Facebook’s website in your browser!
Yes, just because you’re using a computer that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of the “lean and mean” mobile version of the Facebook website.
What’s more, it’s extremely easy to do…
Simply add m. to the front of the facebook.com domain in your browser’s address bar.
In other words, instead of typing www.facebook.com into the address bar, type this instead:
Since you’re now viewing the mobile version of the website, it may look like it’s stretched really wide, and thus it might be a little difficult to read.
Luckily, this too is very easy to fix simply by narrowing the browser window a bit. Here’s how:
1 – Move your mouse pointer to either the left or right edge of the Facebook window until the pointer turns into a double arrow.
2 – Click the edge of the window and drag it towards the center of the screen until everything looks normal.
To go back to the desktop version, ]simply remove the m. from the front of the domain name.
Using the mobile version of the Facebook site has a couple of other advantages as well:
1 – The pages will load a lot faster.
2 – The mobile site uses a lot less data, which can be a huge advantage if you happen to have a limited Internet service plan.
