Use This Simple Facebook Trick To View Photos on Free Mode

In this article, I will show you a trick on how you can easily  view photos while using Facebook free mode otherwise known as freebasic. Ever since freebasic internet browsing was introduced in Nigeria about a year ago, it has saved many people especially those that find it difficult to afford data subscription because with free basic, you can visit some websites without airtime or active data plan on your phone.


At the moment, it’s only Airtel and 9Mobile networks that supports freebasic internet in Nigeria. Note that on Facebook free mode , you won’t be able to view photos but with the trick am gonna show to you right now, you will be able to view photos, pictures, images uploaded by people on Facebook.


This simple trick is made possible with the help of the Facebook lite app which is the network and data friendly version of facebook app. It loads faster, saves battery, data and of course works in areas with poor network reception 📶 unlike the regular Facebook app.

So without wasting much time, I will like to begin with the requirements you need in order to see/show/view Facebook photos on free mode. Let’s go there.
