I’ve heard from a couple of readers who are having issues seeing the small print on the Facebook mobile app. They want to know if there’s a way to make the type bigger. Unfortunately, the answer is “no.”


Facebook mobile doesn’t offer any options for enlarging the size of the text. You can pinch and zoom in on photos when they’re open, but there is no option to get a closer look at the text.

Enlarging the text size on your phone won’t help either. That doesn’t affect the Facebook app. One temporary fix is to enable Magnification gestures under your Android phone’s accessibility options. Then you can temporarily zoom in with a triple tap.¬† My suggestion is to head on over to the Facebook FB page and leave¬† a message letting them know this is something you’d like to see.
