Recently Facebook has added a new convenient way of login into Facebook Account and that is with Facebook Login Mobile Number. This feature allows a Facebook User to do Facebook Login with mobile number. Previously, Facebookers were only able to log into their Facebook with their email addresses. Later, Facebook provided an alternative to the email address i.e. username. Now, the second alternative happens to be the Facebook Login using Mobile Phone Number.
To login Facebook using mobile number you need to type in your mobile number (the number which you’ve validated with your Facebook Account) in the Email or Phone field (previously it said only “Email”). The password would be same, so you should enter the password in the following field and then hit Enter or click Login. While entering mobile number in the “Email or Phone” field, enter it with your country code but without any zero(0)s or symbol(+) in the beginning.
If you number is 123456 and your country code is 01.
Then you should enter 1123456 as your Facebook Mobile Number Login.
To login Facebook with mobile number you must have your Mobile number activated for mobile login Facebook. If you haven’t linked your mobile number with your Facebook Account, you’ll need to follow the steps below.
- Login to your Facebook account using either your email or your Facebook username.
- Go to account settings by clicking on the drop down arrow at the top right corner of Facebook Screen.
- Select Mobile from the tabs in the left hand side of Account Settings.
- Click Add Mobile Phone Number.
- Enter your Mobile phone Number in the window that pops up and click send confirmation code.
- Facebook will send a text message to your number in which you’ll find a confirmation code.
- Enter that code in the Box which says “Confirmation Code” and click confirm.
You’re all set with setting up your Mobile phone number settings and now you must be able to do Facebook Login via Mobile Number.
Everyone once in a while Facebook Users, those who have already activated the Mobile Login Service and mostly who have also begun using Facebook Login by Mobile Number, face problems while logging into their Facebook Accounts. If you face trouble accessing your Facebook Account by using your mobile number then what you should do is clear the caches and cookies of the internet browser you are using and then restart the browser and try again with your login credentials. The same solution goes to the mobile users too. This should solve the problem for both desktop and mobile users and you should be able to make Facebook login using mobile number again.

Facebook Connect is yet another advantage given by Facebook to not only other web pages and not only the Facebook users, but to the both parties. Facebook Connect can be taken as an additional service based on the theme of Facebook i.e., to connect people to enable them to communicate, no matter where they are.
The origin of Facebook Connect came from its first edition, Facebook Api. Facebook Api was introduced in August 2006 by Facebook. This feature advantaged users to share their information with the applications and websites (third party) of their choice. The idea was to help Facebook users to use third party websites and applications and connect with Facebook information and vice versa. This information included the basic information from profile, photos, friends or any other sort according to the need of the website or application. Since this idea omitted the previous ideas of entering the forms with the same information again and again, it was highly appreciated by all and not so long after the introduction of the Facebook Api, companies in large number applied these APIs.
Later in May 2007, www.facebook.com launched Facebook Platform which is also based on the Facebook Api introduced above. Facebook Platform as the name suggests provided a special platform for the developers from across the world. Developers who are can build Social Applications within Facebook for the Facebook users participated from all over the world. In not much time, Facebook recorded the participation of more than 350,000 developers from 225 countries signing up and developing rich social applications for Facebook. Expected result: Facebook users highly appreciated and accepted this grand service by Facebook.
Finally, the last extension or the latest version on Facebook Platform, Facebook Connect was announced in May 2008. The name Facebook Connect again clarifies its purpose which is to help Facebook users connect with their Facebook information or personal details in any site where Facebook Connect Api is applied. With the help of Facebook Connect, it has been easier for third party websites to employ the features of Facebook Platform on one hand. On the other hand, Facebook users are capable of using their one unique true identity i.e., the identity of Facebook, while connecting with any site. Moreover, they can share and stay updated about the similar activities of their friends who are being benefitted with Facebook Connect.
Facebook users are prompted to connect via their Facebook profile (an alternative to classic login option) by the website they are visiting (the site must have been using Facebook Connect) via a Facebook Connect Button. This provides an opportunity to the Facebook Users to take their Facebook profile information, friends and privacy options to their favorite sites. Be it another social network like twitter(you can connect twitter to Facebook using Facebook Connect) Users can comment, like or share the activities they take part in. However, a pop-up gives an option to share those activities and its completely in the hands of the user to either share it or not. In any website where a Facebook User is connected via Facebook Connect, s/he can connect with his friends and view their activities at that particular site too.

Facebook Profile is the profile/wall or timeline of a particular Facebook login account holder. The URL www.facebook.com forwards the user to the Facebook Login page (if s/he’s not logged in) or the Facebook Homepage (if s/he’s already logged in). However, it never leads to the Facebook Profile or Timeline of the user. To view the Profile, go to www.facebook.com and after entering the login credentials, one should click the Profile link on the top right corner of the Facebook login screen. However, if the URL directs you to the homepage, loging in again will not be necessary (will not be possible either.)
A Facebook Login Profile is the Wall of the user himself/herself. This page shows the information about the owner of this profile and his/her activities. The statues, photos, likes, comments, events and other activities that the user has been involved in, are displayed in the Facebook profile page. Unlike this, the Facebook homepage displays the same information for all of the friends or even friends of friends as per the settings of the Facebook users. It’s termed as Facebook Login Profile in this article because none of the Profile related or even the Facebook Homepage related activities are accessible without being logged into the Facebook Account.
There is one way that can help viewing one’s or other person’s Profile on Facebook without logging in and even without signing up for a Facebook Account. Instead of typing www.facebook.com in the address bar, type www.facebook.com/username. Replace the ‘Facebook login username‘ with the username of the person whose profile you’re trying to view. This will redirect you to the profile of that person and there you’ll see options for Signing up as well as Log in to the Facebook Account. Once you press the Login Button there, you’ll have to enter your ID and password and you’ll be redirected to the same profile again but only this time you’ll be logged in and you’ll be able to access more on Facebook.
