The Facebook app does more than help you stay connected with your friends and interests. It’s also your personal organizer for storing, saving and sharing photos. It’s easy to share photos straight from your Android camera, and you have full control over your photos and privacy settings. You can choose when to keep individual photos private or even set up a secret photo album to control who sees it.

Facebook also helps you keep up with the latest news and current events around the world. Subscribe to your favorite celebrities, brands, news sources, artists, or sports teams to follow their newsfeeds, watch live streaming videos and be caught up on the latest happenings no matter where you are!

The most important desktop features of Facebook are also available on the app, such as writing on timelines, liking photos, browsing for people, and editing your profile and groups.

Facebook is the official Android app for the iconic original social network par excellence. Once again, this app is here to simplify your Facebook experience by providing all your favorite features from one spot.

Essentially, this Facebook app has all the same features as its original browser version, the only main difference you’ll notice is that you can’t play Facebook games on it.

That said, gaming aside, you’ll get all the same updates from friends and family; browse your timeline, upload and save photos, change your status, comment and the whole lot — from anywhere.

One of the best features of this official Facebook app is the option to share all kinds of content directly from your smartphone. You can upload photos and videos straight from your gallery directly onto your Facebook account.

Facebook for Android is truly a must-have app for anyone that’s fairly active on the world’s #1 social network. Albeit, it does come with a single (but major) setback. You cannot access your Facebook direct messages from this app, but rather, you’ll have to go the extra mile and download Facebook’s fully independent Messenger app (also on Uptodown) in order to check your Facebook messages from your smartphone.
