How to download Facebook for free: Although not a particularly “technological” type, you have just bought your first smartphone. You still look at it a little in a dull manner but slowly, even if you don’t want to admit it, you are convincing yourself of its greater usefulness compared to the prehistoric cell phone you carried around until some time ago.

With your new hi-tech “trinket” you can also enter the world of social networks, chat and exchange photos or videos with friends and relatives. I bet I’m not the first to tell you about it.

I can see it in your eyes: you already thought about subscribing to Facebook, however, being impractical in these things, you preferred to stall. Well, know that there is absolutely no reason to keep doing this!

Installing the Facebook application on your smartphone, joining this famous social network and starting to communicate with friends and relatives online is really a breeze. It also costs nothing, neither now nor in a year: it is and will always be free! Follow the instructions below and I assure you that you will not encounter the slightest problem.

You have a smartphone Android? Then to find out how to download facebook for free open the Play Store: it is the white bag icon with the “play” symbol printed above that you see on the main screen of the phone or in the menu with the icons of all the apps installed on the device.

Once in the store, press the icon of magnifying glass (top right), type the name of Facebook in the text field that appears and presses the icon of magnifying glass located at the bottom right (in the keyboard) to start the search for the application.

At this point, select the icon Facebook in the search results (it is the blue box with the letter “F” in the center) and presses the buttons Install And I accept to start downloading and installing the app.

If you get error messages related to the fact that you are not authenticated with your Google account, read my guide on how to create a Google account and associate your address with your mobile.

If, on the other hand, you cannot find the Play Store icon, there is a high probability that you have purchased a cheap phone that, for licensing reasons, does not include the Google home store within it. To bypass this problem you can turn to third-party stores as I explained to you in my guide on how to download Android applications.

If your smartphone is an iPhone, regardless of the model, you can download Facebook by entering theApp Store (the blue icon with the letter “A” in the center that you find on the main phone screen), by going to the tab Near (bottom right) and looking for the name of Facebookin the bar that appears at the top.

Next, select the app icon from the search results, press the button Get / Install and confirm your identity by typing your Apple ID password or by placing your finger on the Touch ID sensor (on iPhone 5S and later).

If errors appear related to the fact that you are not authenticated with your Apple ID on the App Store, run to the remedies by discovering how to create an Apple ID and connect it to the iPhone: you will find everything explained in my guide on the subject.

After that you have to enter name and surname, set the password to access your profile and indicate the rest of your personal data, i.e. date of birth and gender of belonging (man or woman).

Once you have filled in all the forms, verify your identity by typing the confirmation code that came to you via SMS or by opening the link you received via email (depending on the registration method you chose at the beginning) and complete your profile choosing one photo to be used to represent you and by entering the information you think is most appropriate in on city in which you live, the work what are you doing, etc.
