The Facebook app efficiently takes care of the user-experience. Tapping an image on your wall opens it in the full-screen mode, and it is quite easy to download and share the photos. To have a look at your favorites, apps, friends, and settings, all you need to do is to slide your finger from the left of the display.
Animation and sound effect that the app shows and play while liking a post, adding a mood, or commenting escalate the fun of scrolling the wall. The app hides the navigation bar to its left. It can be accessed by tapping on the three horizontal lines located exactly at the upper left corner.

Apart from merely sharing your photos with your friends, the Facebook app also allows you to edit them provided you have clicked them from the Facebook app. It allows you to add filters, use stickers on them and write your customized text. Not just your profile, but the app also allows you to create and/or manage your business pages without excluding any of the features that you find in the website version of the platform.
One of the amazing features that the app offers you is the News Feed Preference.

In case, you are not sure about the utility of a feature or function, the help center and the community of this biggest social media platform is always there to help you out.

Under its “Account Settings” head, there are a plethora of things that you can play with to make your account more secure and safe. For instance, notification when your account has been logged in from a new device, password change, password recovery option, login approvals, trusted contacts to help you gain access to your account if you are ever locked out, etc. Thus, with Facebook, you can stay connected with the rest of the world without having to mull over any breach of your security.
