Why Is Facebook Preinstalled on My Phone?

Environment

Answer

Some manufacturers now include a "shell" app for Facebook in their Android build. It is a very small file that facilitates the installation of the full app, but does not function as the full app. Republic Wireless does not install the Facebook app.

Additional Notes

To disable or uninstall this shell app, see How to Disable or Uninstall an App from Settings
