Why can't I use two Facebook accounts on my tablet


The FB app is tied to the account used to login; to share the tablet, but not your accounts via the app, you may always need to log-out of the account. Alternatively, you may search for 3rd party FB apps that handle more than one account. Hootlet and Friendcaster are two of several 3rd party apps that can manage/handle multiple FB accounts.

We have two facebook accounts one for me and one for my wife, so when I try to open mine always appear my wife,s instead. please tell me what can I do to have easy acces to my account.


You can set up a different browser for each user and stay logged in on each browser. For instance, you use Firefox and your wife uses Google Chrome, and each browser saves your personal settings. Or just log out of your wife's and log into yours.

My wife started a Facebook account and used our email address as an alternate. I now can't get into my account because it only recognizes her at our email address. She even deactivated it but when I try...


My wife started a Facebook account : does it mean u have created a seperate account in ur name ?

solution : 1 if so , u must have got the activeation mail : please check ur inbox and junk folder . if u dont find the activation/confirmation mail from face book , then looks like ur alternate mail has been used primary contact : 

solution 2 : ask ur wife to login to her accout and then later log off . 

then sign in with ur personal account and see if the creadentials are valid . 

(u can view 2  diff account on the same browser , unless 1 of the account is logged off ).

would b glad know more about it .,

good day .

Firefox on the Mac


Even though the download says "allows all users" your wife's user account is completely separate from yours. You will have to download Firefox in your wife's account.
