How to add a shortcut to the Facebook profile on the iPhone / iPad Home Screen

Facebook is currently the largest social network in the world. On Facebook, we find profiles / people, from close friends and relatives to world celebrities and state presidents.

For every mobile operating system, there is a version of the Facebook app, which is constantly updated, and brings improvements and news almost every month. Most Facebook users have the official smartphone app installed. Whether we're talking here about Windows Phone, Android, or iOS. There is, however, a negligible number of users entering Facebook from the internet browser of the mobile phone. Opera, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari are the most downloaded and used mobile browsers from which Facebook is accessed.

IOS (iPhone / iPad) users mostly use the Safari internet browser to browse websites or Facebook. This requires clicking on the Safari icon, then typing "" into the URL Address bar.

A simpler and faster method is to we add a Facebook or shortcut directly to the iPhone or iPad Home Screen.

How do I add a shortcut to a profile or a Facebook page on the iPhone or iPad Home Screen

1. Open the Safari browser and access the Facebook profile or page where we want to create a shortcut on the Home Screen, then click on the square icon and the up arrow at the bottom of the screen.

2. In the menu that opens, click on "Add to Home Screen

3. The next option allows us to edit the URL (not necessary), and edit the name of the shortcut that will appear on the Home Screen under the icon.

Finally, after editing the name, press "Add" from the top right and the icon for quick access to your Facebook profile will be added to the Home Screen.

The shortcut icon is almost identical to the Facebook app for iPhone and iPad, so do not name this shortcut "Facebook". There is a risk of confusing them. ????

Once this shortcut is created, you can open your Facebook profile in Safari by touching it.

You can create multiple Home Screen shortcuts, which Facebook profiles and pages you are interested in following.
