1. Disregard: Found answer on following. Recently noticed link @ top shows ‘m.facebook’ – I’m not very observant & never noticed change – is that new?  Getting unusual questions!

2. Dupl FB Acct: Around this same time (June), I’ve somehow created a duplicate FB acct – only different profile pics – no history on dupl past June – very few current entries since, on Orig.  Now FB has Orig locked & Dupl opens by default – no pw!!  When I pull up Accts Mngmt –  shows Orig Chkd as Default w Key Icon (means already signed in – but of course won’t open due to lockout)!

* See 1 .’m.fb is Mobile, Duh!  Will retry.    I tried to validate but don’t want to give ‘m.fb’ my info till I ver IT vs orig FB!! 

2’m.fb is Mobile, Duh!  Will retry.à a


In the middle of all this I got the new S22!  Traded in S9 – even $s – till I upgraded to Ultra!!  Just so much more convenient than ol’ D300 which takes as much maint as a new vehicle!!;))

No hurry, finally got phone working thx to Super Verizon ‘tech/teacher’ from TN (funny story for another day).  Absolutely ‘NO THX!’ to local Veriz Store (Unfunny Story – will add to list – ‘Covid’, of course!!)

Hope y’all have a Great Weekend!

ATBest & God Bless!!

jim, ¹rcs!


Bon Chance!!

Hello Ragin Cajun,

The m.facebook.com means that you’re on the mobile website and not the app. So, you’re going to Facebook on your phone, but opening Chrome or Safari to go to the website, rather than tapping on the Facebook icon on your phone. Have you installed the Facebook App to your phone from the Play Store? That’s usually the best way to go for Facebook.

OK, I see your edited message that says you figured that out. So, your question now is about your duplicate account right? 

Can you log in to the proper one on your computer? or is it just the phone that gives you the problem?

Facebook is not supposed to let you create more than one account with the same email address. Do you use another address with Facebook?
