    I can recommend one other option; bookmarking facebook and putting that bookmark on your home screen. However there is the new requirement to use their messenger app in order to view your messages, but that has a work-around as well. Simply select “request desktop site” in the drop-down menu of Chrome and THEN click your messages icon. You may be able to bookmark this “request desktop site” version instead, or find the link on facebook that says “desktop version,” near the bottom to view the true full site.

    Selecting “request desktop site” doesn’t actually kick facebook out of phone mode, but it lets you view your messages.
