Can iPad Users View The Desktop Version Of Facebook?

Is there a way to force Facebook to display the desktop site on an iPad instead of the mobile site in Safari?

The answer is YES. both Safari and Chrome for iOS include the optional setting to request the desktop version of the Facebook.com site. So, using the same steps, Safari and Chrome users on the iPad or iPhone can use this link to switch to the desktop site.

iPad and iPhone users can also request the desktop version of a site from within Safari

I hope these tips help!

How to upload your Facebook Page Cover Photo

When you upload your Cover Photo on desktop, you can adjust the top cropping so it’s positioned top-to-bottom exactly as you like it.

If you upload on mobile, it will crop to center automatically in desktop view. However, I don’t recommend this, as the compression is terrible!

Stick to uploading a PNG file via your desktop computer and it will look 10 times better.

How to View Your Facebook Profile as a Public User

Facebook allows you to share certain information publicly, with friends, with specific friends, or just with yourself. If you want to view your Facebook profile as the public sees it so you can see what others see (people who aren’t your friends), you can do so quite easily by using Facebook’s public viewing feature.

Just a few clicks puts your public-facing profile in front of you.

You can do this both on Facebook.com and the official Facebook app for iPhone/Android. Instructions are provided for both, however screenshots are provided only for Facebook.com.

  1. Navigate to Facebook.com in a web browser or open the Facebook app on your device and select your profile icon in the post composer field or the top right corner of the page to go to your profile.

  2. On Facebook.com, select the three dots under your cover photo.

    In the app, select the three dots to the right of the blue Add Story button.

  3. Select View As.

  4. Your profile will be shown to you as if you were viewing it as a public user. This is how non-friends see your profile.

    If you notice something appears publicly that you want to hide from the public, you can adjust the privacy settings for that information.

Facebook Page cover photo on desktop

The cropping on the desktop version has become a bit more severe in New Facebook. Whereas Facebook is still telling us:

Your Page’s cover photo: Displays at 820 pixels wide by 312 pixels tall on your Page on computers source

I find it’s been cropped down to only 303 pixels tall at that 820 width.

Here’s how the mobile to desktop crop plays out now, in New Facebook. The purple dotted line shows the 16×9 cover photo on mobile while the green dotted line shows how it crops on desktop:

More details on sizing when you get to my template further down this article.

The biggest visual changes on desktop are:

1 | The repositioning of the profile picture from left of the banner image, to below it. There’s only a tiny bit of overlap, so this won’t mess up you banner design.

2 | The gradient bar at the sides. If you’re struggling with how it looks, I’ll explain more about it at the end of the article.
