The official Facebook app by Facebook is without question the number one app that people use to browse it. Many might not be aware of this but there are alternative apps for using Facebook in Android phones. That means you do not need the official application. You can use a third party app.
There might be different reasons why you would want to use a third party app for Facebook. May be the Facebook app is too boring for you, may be you are tired of the same app design and want some change or may be you want something smaller is size. For reasons like these and many more people prefer to use alternative apps for Facebook. One good use of those apps can be to manage multiple Facebook accounts in the same phone with ease.
