If you want to install and use the Facebook app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Facebook in the search bar and press Search. Click on Facebook application icon. A window of Facebook on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Updates

    By MaddieBabyFirefly
    It is so annoying to have to update both this app and the messenger app every other week. I have very limited space on my phone and I’ve cut down everything I can to make storage without having to buy more space. But every other week I get a notification that I have to update the apps and every time I try to update them my phone tells me I don’t have enough space. I actually have to delete photos and videos of my kids to try and make room for these pointless updates. It’s incredibly obnoxious. If you actually seriously have some good solid updates and/or bug fixes then yeah, sure, shoot us an update. But having them every other week, finding superfluous things to update In the app just for the sake of a bi-weekly update, is obnoxious. If it weren’t for the fact that it’s the only way I have to see photos of my family members and their kids I would have deleted Facebook a long time ago. I update facebook and the messenger app far more frequently than I actually use them. Also what is up with the status box not being able to keep up with my typing? The cursor jumps around to the middle of the word to the previous word, then back to the very beginning of the text box, and then autocorrect tries to rectify all of those places that your cursor jumped around to and suddenly you have to retype the whole thing... SLOWLY. So done with Facebook.
  • Privacy Issue

    By Randyvip
    The new changes in Facebook really bothers me. When I like someones post, everyone of my friends knows. Why does everyone have to know what I like? This is a stupid feature. The only person that has to know that I like the post is the person that posted it. Second when Facebook started cracking down on viral staff it became boring. I know they are cracking down on fake news too but do Facebook really think that people are that dumb to not know what fake news is? Sometimes things goes viral because it’s funny and entertaining not because we don’t know it’s fake news. Why do you have to decide what’s fake news and what’s not for us? Don’t you think that we can decide that for ourselves? The third thing is that you cannot make yourself invisible in FB chat anymore. I’m talking about completely invisible. Even though they have the “invisible” button, you still show up as visible. This thing sparks conflict with friends because sometimes you don’t want to be bothered and just want to scroll your Newsfeed for fun stuff, then your friends starts messaging you and gets mad because you did not reply and they know that you are online. And this goes back to the first privacy problem, which is, when you like something it will show up to all your friends news feed, that tells them that you are online. So there is no more privacy really in Facebook.
  • Privacy

    By TMC 726
    There have been some privacy issues that I am getting tired of. One, why do people need to know if I am active? Why have the option for me to turn off my chat icon if it still shows me active. As someone said before, I would like to scroll through my news feed in peace. Two, why is it that if you have someone as you’re frond that they can call you on Facebook messenger. There are a lot of people that I do not directly talk to but I went to school with them or worked with them and we are friends on Facebook but I do not want them attempting to call me through messenger. Someone hacked one of my friends accounts and they called me at 217am. There should be an option on either who can call or to turn calling off altogether. As for regular issues news feeds are becoming annoying when they refresh on their own if I close my the app or my phone auto locks and I open it back up. I would like to continue where I left off. Another thing is why does it now show in order. I know there is a tab for that but it is like I have to go back and forth making sure my most recent is on and then that also goes away on its own and back to whatever you guys think is most relevant. Facebook is great at making friends and family far away feel near but lately it has been annoying.
  • Difficult to use with iOS VoiceOver

    By justmikeaf
    I am a blind user, and find this app difficult to use. Some functions are not labeled as links/buttons, so if I find myself unable to figure something out by listening, I have to blindly (pun intended) double tap on elements until I find one that does something. The browser version seems to have a slew of options for pages, which are absent from this app. Another problem I’ve noticed is a failure of using drop-down menus, such as when I was searching for my friend to add as admin to my page. I had to approach the problem in many different ways, and the eventual solution was something I had already attempted. The last thing I will mention is with News Feed/Timeline. I am often unable to scroll the News Feed, as the VoiceOver control jumps down to tabs. Three finger scroll down will sometimes move it, but sometimes not. Timeline’s feature lumping friends’ posts into one item seems impossible to open for interacting with individual posts. I give three stars, because there is a great deal of accessible features, and I do realize this (mostly) visual app must be challenging to translate to a screen reader. It is the inconsistencies in function, however, which kept my rating from being higher.

    Get rid of this app! It works better on a web browser (Google Chrome for me!). Seriously. You’ll save yourself headaches!

  • Still so frustrated over Marketplace

    By Valump78
    EDIT! I AM SO FRUSTRATED RIGHT NOW. THIS IS THE TIME TO BUY FOR CHRISTMAS. THE MARKETPLACE ON MY IPAD STILL OPENS THE ITEM UP TO A BLANK PAGE. EVEN WHEN I OPEN IT IN SAFARI, IT REVERTS BACK TO THE APP!!! I have opened up cases and asked them twice now why when I open up an item in the marketplace on my iPad the item doesn’t open it shows a blank screen. and I get the standard response. One case was closed unresolved. The other is still just submitted days later. I am so over this. Absolutely over it. Please fix this

  • Worst update ever

  • Pics in Landscape viewing

    By AiRplanedriver
    When viewing app in landscape mode, pictures are turning to portrait mode for no reason. Annoying And no reason to continually put out updates every week that do nothing. Certainly just hide subtle changes for more adware.
