You may know much about the Facebook and couldn’t stay away from it as it allows you to reach you friends, share photos and videos, or even acknowledge all the latest news around the world. It would be really inconvenient if you don't have a Facebook App on your device. For instance, some people post the wonderful photos on Facebook when you are outdoors, and of cause you could not read the information if you haven't installed the App on your device. So you miss them and may get them until you are home and sit in front of the computer.

Of cause you would install the Facebook App on your device. In this way, you may get tons of photos you want to keep on it. However, the Facebook for Android still could not support you to download it on your device. Please continue to read and you will find out how to save them on your Android device in several steps.

Some people may ask what the differences are between Facebook for Android and Facebook Messenger. Actually, with Facebook for Android, you are able to access your Facebook as the way you do on the computer. You can check the Timeline, post photos or videos and access your News Feed. But with Facebook Messenger, it allows you to private message your friends (get less functions than the Facebook for Android).
