Why Is Facebook Preinstalled on My Phone?

Environment

Answer

Google and Facebook have an agreement to preload this app on many Android phones. Republic Wireless does not preinstall the Facebook app or in any way partner with Facebook.

Additional Notes

Like many preinstalled/"shell" apps, it may not be possible to fully uninstall this app on some phones, depending on the model. You can completely disable it, however, if you do not want to use it.
