    If you've been thinking about moving away from Facebook, but can't seem to pull the trigger—I'd suggest uninstalling it from your phone.

    A few benefits:

    • I've found the mobile website to be much faster and easier to use than the application. Yay React!
    • Much less battery drain. My phone battery probably gained 10-20% more battery life uninstalling Facebook.
    • No annoying notifications. Facebook sends all sorts of notifications to draw you back in. Without notifications, you don't really visit Facebook as much.

    Caveat: You can no longer view messages on Facebook mobile. If you do have a message just go to http://mbasic.facebook.com/ to view them.

      You can. Either use chrome or hold down the refresh arrow and request desktop site and it'll work :)
