Facebook is the largest social media app in the world so it is very important to get it on our device. It is very easy to use it on Android, Apple & Windows smartphones, as we can download it from Play Store, App Store & Windows Store respectively. It is totally different on the smartwatches like Samsung Gear S3 & Gear Sport, because wearables are not made for such apps. The apps like Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitter, Viber etc. uses lots of space & consumes most of the battery on device. That’s why there is no single app available on wearables. That does not mean you can’t access Facebook on smartwatches. Yes, there is another way to read all your Facebook posts on the screen.
Here I will tell you how to use Facebook on Samsung Gear S3 & Gear Sport smartwatches, also this works on old Samsung Gear S2. If you are new to the Gear watch or don’t know how to use Facebook or Facebook Messenger then here I will tell you how to do it. The original Facebook app is not available in Gear Manager app store so there is only one way to get all Facebook posts or chats on Gear S3 & Gear Sport is by activating notifications of these apps.
Activation of Facebook Notification is very easy. First, go to Settings and here tap on ‘Manage Notifications‘ option. When you open it you will see all the supported apps of your device. In the list you will see Facebook option, here enable it by pressing on ‘On’ button. That’s it after this you will get all the notifications from the Facebook app. Next time when you receive any new updates then smartwatch will alert you. It will show Yellow dot & Green Dot on main watch faces screen so when you receive any message then move your screen to the left side to see all your messages or notifications.
The same way you can deactivate notifications of Facebook app. If in future you don’t want to receive any new messages then go to the Manage Notifications & disable On button. If you want to stop all the notifications of all the apps then just tap on Off button of ‘All Apps’ & your Gear watch will never receive any messages. I suggest you not to disable All Apps, because this way you could miss some important messages.
