Facebook Mobile Problems and Giveaways

Some people have told me recently that if they are using a mobile device (such as iPhone or Android) that they are still having trouble entering the giveaways.  So, today I looked into it more.  Apparently, when you click on a link on Facebook, it takes you to a Facebook browser of sorts.  This Facebook browser does not like the GiveawayTools widget that I have been using.  There is only one solution for now, and that is to open the page in another browser on your phone (such as Safari or what ever comes with Android).  Here is how to do that on iPhone Facebook mobile app.

First, you will want to click on the link you want.

That will open a page that looks somewhat like this...

You will want to click on that box with an arrow coming out of it on the bottom right.

Once you click on that, you will have three options.  The middle one is to share the link which you want need right now, the top and bottom options are the ones you will want to look at.  The first option on iPhone is to open it in Safari.  I know for a fact that the giveaway widgets will work on Safari, so that is normally what I use for quick things like this.  The last option is to copy the link.  If you copy the link, then you can then go to the browser of your choice, and past the link into the address bar. I normally use Chrome for that.  

If you have any other problems, please let me know.
