How to View Photos on Facebook Freebasics Mode
It is no news that Airtel network and 9mobile has been collaborating with Facebook to provide their esteemed customers free access to Facebook without data subscription for a very long time now.
Thousands of Airtel and 9mobile customers have been enjoying this offer for quite a longer period of time now. Gone are the days when the situation was “No data, No Facebook!”
But as it is always the case with freebies (free stuffs), there is an apparent limitation to this offer. The limitation is that users of Facebook free mode cannot see photos other than their friends’ profile pictures.
However, many people believe that since they had on their own volition decided to provide their customers with this offer, they should not be any limitations attached. Well, if you are among this set of people, there is good news for you.
In this tutorial, I shall share the little secret I discovered that will help you view All photos on Facebook free mode on your Android phone. Please read on.
I advise you to use Facebook Lite version for this trick to work. That is what I used when I was testing this trick and it worked very well.
If you don’t have Facebook Lite on your device, go search for it on Google Play Store and download or you download direct from Facebook at the bottom of your profile where you see something like “Click here to install Facebook Lite version on your phone.”
I assume you have downloaded your Facebook Lite. Now, we move over to the tutorial proper.
