How do I install the Facebook app on my Samsung Galaxy device?

The Facebook app comes pre-installed on newer Samsung devices, but will need to be downloaded and installed on older devices.

 

If you are having difficulty installing Facebook, check that you have enough storage for the app. If you have an older device or limited storage, it might be worth considering installing Facebook Lite which uses less space and data.

 

Facebook is not an official Samsung app. If you are having difficulty with the app, we recommend contacting Facebook directly. You can find Facebook Help here.
