On my Galaxy Nexus, both the Facebook app and m.facebook.com present the full "Timeline" view with cover photo and links to About, Photos, Friends, Likes.

On my Springboard (running ICS and "high resolution" mode), I get a pared-down view with only cover photo, buttons for friending and messaging, write post and share photo. I am not able to browse any other aspects of one's profile unless I load the desktop page.

Any idea why Facebook has LESS features on a tablet than on a phone? Has anyone managed to force the full mobile Timeline view to work?

Don't know what would make the difference. They both come up the same on my phone and springboard. Have you tried Friendcaster though? Way better then thee actual Facebook app.

Okay screenshots. Here is the public profile of a local politician who I haven't friended, but her permissions allow lots to be shown on her profile so she makes a good example.

Galaxy Nexus: (cut off part of the cover photo to show the important parts)


MediaPad ICS high resolution mode:


Note how the GNex version has About, Photos, Friends, Likes. The MediaPad version is missing the entire Timeline layout, and has only her About page - no links to see her wall, photos or likes. When I do the same for people who *are* my friends, I get the wall with no links to About, Photos or Friends.

Both screenshots are from the Facebook app, same version, latest from Google Play. Neither is a browser shot.

Notice in both shots there is a three-dot menu button on the taskbar. That would not be there if I were viewing it from the browser.

Nonetheless, the problem is that on one device it's displaying all the correct links/buttons and on the other it isn't.

No it isn't, at least not on mine. Pages are still missing links to see all parts of the profile. I loaded up the Hedy Fry page again just now and it looks the same.
