    How to make my form on Facebook visible to Mobile Users

    Asked by Tyler112293 on January 25, 2017 at 03:56 PM

    Hello,

     

    I have recently created a form and have it up on our Facebook page and it works great on a desktop. However, I have placed a widget on the form editor to make it work on mobile devices and when I go to our page, the form tab is nowhere to be found.

     

    Can you help with this? Thank you!

    Hello there too! The short answer would be, Facebook doesn't support tabs on mobile.

    Here's a bug report and discussion posted by a Developer Support Engineer from Facebook:

    How can I have our form visible and usable on a mobile device? I have
    placed a widget on the form to be mobile accessible but Facebook does not
    seem to allow it.

    As mentioned by my colleague, Facebook does not support tabs on mobiles yet. If you want the tab to be visible on mobile devices, you have to use our workaround from this guide:
