Same problem here. But it is really annoying that at first start all pictures are showing up too large.
But this is only happening with Google Chrome (Android). Firefox is all fine.

I just refresh the page and the photos become normal size. Don't know why this works (it is not a desktop view), but it does.

Do you have a question about Kindles?

Hi, I am viewing Facebook through a browser on my desktop PC and the photos are enlarged. Also when I share something it displalys too large to be able to see it properly. I can't find how to change this. Nothing in settings to change to desktop view as some people are suggesting here... can anybody help please? It is annoying.

bit of an old post I know - but I have only just got my tablet and the same thing was happening to me too - I tried your reply above and it is perfect - thanks. Is there any way I can put the shortcut on my desktop of my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.2 instead of opening the browser each time I want to use FB (which is a lot!) please?

Thank you!!!!!!!!!

I solved the problem by going to my android tablet Apps list and held my finger on the FB app the settings came up. It had the option to Uninstall, which was tempting, however I noticed there was a Clear Cache option, so I selected that and that put my pictures in the normal mode.

Facebook promised to improve the mobile experience this year (i.e. find a way to add ads). I agree with the above, its best simply to use a browser to use fb from a tablet. I love my fb friends and relatives, but I don't really want to access fb and see a huge magnification of someone's nose.

Have not found any way to reverse it. It is due to the Facebook upgrade.
Instead of the Facebook app access Facebook through the browser. It works better.

Same thing happened to my Ipadwhen I can it be reversed??

It's been that way since Facebook did their last update. It's probably just a bug they'll fix with another update.

Depends on the size of your screen but if you are surfing with Kindle or tablet then you dont need an 'app' to view regular web content (facebook) - you dont need anything other than a regular browser - just like a PC doesn't need an app - i dont use/need any 'apps' just to look at regular web pages

I've changed the view on both the app and and it didn't change a thing!

Leigh, what does playing Facebook games on a PC with Firefox have to do with Kindle? I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.

I know that I do not have this option on my iPAd. Pictures are oversized in app and when I try and use the .com version I keep getting cut off. I have been just putting up with the oversized pictures.
It all changed when app upgrade was made by Facebook a few months back.

On the FB page, click the 3 horizontal bars on the top left on the page. Scroll down to desk top view, bottom left. Hope this helps.

You change to desktop view in the Silk browser. Menu, Settings, Requested website view.

Is desk top view under a heading? I don't see anything that looks like that under the three bars on my Kindle Fire HD...

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 4:20:54 AM PST
I did that too, and it works! Whew! I don't know if the 1st gen Fire had that option (I didn't know about the option) but it was easy to find on the HD. Much better; no more closeups of peoples' nostrils!

I'n not using the FB app if they cant sort it - Im just viewing FB through standard browser
I've also set my Tablet browser settings (Kindle Browser will have settings) to use Desktop view (not mobile) and my tablet now defaults to desktop view on all websites including Amazon & Facebook

So everything is as per my PC now
