Facebook App VS Browsers
Facebook's Accessibility & Graphics
As most people know, Facebook has only one domain. (facebook.com)
However, I have found that a lot of people did not realize that Facebook has several different websites or more accurately, different visual versions. This gives the user different graphical representations to look at, depending on the device they are using. They have different views from cell phone with apps, to tablet options, to the full version access through a computer's web browser.
Facebook knows what kind of device you are using and then their computer gives you the correct data version for your device.
This is a very simplistic view. You get the main feed without the direct view of the left and right side bars. When using the Facebook app, there is even some content that will not show up here.
Tablets (which include iPads)
It really depends on what size and make of tablet you are using. The smaller one can only use an app and the large ones have the choice between using the app or a web browser. There are even a few that can not use an app.
Whichever happens on your tablet, there will be a wider range of versions that could happen, starting with the simple view of a cell phone, to access more options in an app of a tablet, to the full access of the web browser.
Laptops & Desktop Computers
With almost all laptops and all Desktops, it is most likely you will only have the option of viewing Facebook through the web browser. This will give you full control over your own profile, such as your privacy setting and many games, groups, business pages, and more that you can choose with this viewing option.
The result is, the smaller the device, the less options and more simple the access becomes. The bigger the device, the more control that you have over your content.
